The magazine finally came out, the embargo passed, and I’m eager to share these portraits I shot in rural Colorado. Glenda is a pleasure to spend time with, and I believe she raises some of the best cared-for cattle in the country.
I was hired to photograph Julinda for a health care publication at her home in the Front Range here in Colorado. I always enjoy meeting and photographing real people (a much more authentic and engaging experience and portrait than a model portraying some character) and Julinda was a pleasure to meet and work with.
Troy Isley just won a bronze medal at the AIBA world championships in Hamburg. I was commissioned to photograph him before he left Colorado. He is a great human; someone to watch and root for all the way (think Tokyo 2020). Congratulations Troy!
I always love meeting new people and it was a joy to spend time with Angela and her family. We made these portraits at her home on assignment for a healthcare publication.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and photograph actress Katie Barberi this fall here in Colorado. She was willing to head to a location I had scouted earlier in the day and even traipse through the woods a bit to stand in what looked like an odd choice for a portrait. However, I’m glad she trusted me and was willing, because that location and her cooperation made the best photographs of the afternoon.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet in person and spend the afternoon with Liz in her studio in Boulder the other day. It was a true pleasure watching her work, chatting with her and (of course) photographing her as she created.
I had a wonderful time meeting and photographing the team at Flitch Studios the other day here in the Denver area. We made some environmental portraits and captured some documentary photography as they worked. Their craftsmanship is amazing, and I’d LOVE to just sit in the chair they were working on at the time.
Below are portraits from a recent assignment in Boulder. We needed to make the environmental portraits outside around 1 or 2pm in mid-June (harsh light and it was hot, so we had to move quickly) A little scouting and subject/light placement kept him cool and made the light flattering.
Here is a new environmental portrait I created while on assignment recently in Boulder, CO.
Below are 3 portraits of a wind turbine technician in rural Colorado. I brought out the lights for this final environmental portrait of Chris. Earlier in the day we climbed up a turbine (basically a looooong ladder straight up the base) and walked around on top of the Nacelle. That was something I have wanted to do for a long time… now I’d love to rope-up and rappel down a blade 🙂
