Congratulations Nick Kreider, Opera Colorado’s 2019 Norblom Award winner. Receiving this award prompted Nick and I to collaborate on a portrait session. We created a few more traditional, conservative head-shots and some beautiful color portraits from this setting, of course. But what I enjoy most are these black and white portraits we created both in the studio and outside.
Modern architecture is holding its own here here in Denver today during the Bomb Cyclone Blizzard of 2019!
I had the extreme pleasure to photograph one of architect Steve Lubowicki’s modern homes here in Denver before the winter arrived. The home is magnificent, and I enjoyed watching it change as the sun moved around it. What I enjoyed most, however, was the time between sunset and sunrise – the home showed it’s form and inner warmth best during twilight. These photographs are mostly from the ground, but I did utilize a drone to capture a few from above.
It’s been a long time since I did a major website overhaul. Always overdue, actually because a good portfolio is a constantly morphing, changing entity. However – I did recently add a new gallery of portraiture that I’m proud of. Mostly recent work for magazine and commercial clients. Take a look, let me know what you think!
A gloomy overcast morning helped me create some magical aerial photographs of Downtown Denver. You can’t quite see the mountains (a little disorienting for anyone who has lived here for even a short time) and maybe that helps elevate the moody tone in these black and white cityscapes.
To see more of my aerial photography, feel free to check out my Denver Drone Photographer website.
Elaine and I made a really nice (but much too quick, and a little too hot) trip down to Arizona this summer. We had a lot of fun checking out some of the architectural gems there – everything from Paolo Soleri’s Arcosanti to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, Mission San Xavier del Bac and even Biosphere 2. Here are a few photos I took during our little adventure.
Happy to share my July Guideposts cover story with Kirstie Ennis. She is a wonderful person with an amazing story/attitude. Check it out in print if you can! (their online version is here)
Congratulations to Bass baritone Andrew Hiers, recently awarded the annual Norblom Award by Opera Colorado. Because of his selection for the award we did a portrait session. Andrew is a great human, and a pleasure to photograph. I hope you get the opportunity to hear him sing some day.
I was recently assigned by The New York Times to photograph a wedding here in Denver for their Style section. The piece was in the Sunday paper here. It was an interesting endeavor to photograph a wedding and not be “the wedding photographer”. It was also a pleasure meeting Harley and Brooke and I appreciate them allowing me to be a part of this day with them. And BTW, The Clyfford Still Museum is an amazing building. Here are a few of the outtakes from the day.
