I was wrapping up photographing this amazing building for a favorite architect here in Colorado this July. Finishing up the interiors I went outside for the final exterior photos of the day. At first I was disappointed because the sky was dark and the light wasn’t as I had envisioned or planned for. Storms happen, time-tables are revised and flexibility is important as a photographer. I decided to stay and see if anything interesting would develop or maybe clear up fast enough to have a nice sunset. The storm blocked some light, and there was no colorful sunset, but it did eventually turn into an amazing light show. In the end I worked two cameras for over 3 hours as the storm moved past, watching in awe. The final photographs were not as I anticipated, but I’m glad I didn’t pack up and go home because things didn’t go as planned.
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!
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.
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.
I had a wonderful assignment a little bit ago for GMC – here are a few from the day it was snowing on us here in the Colorado mountains.
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’m just back from another aerial photo shoot using my drone at a construction site here in the Denver area. Today I spent a little time making visually interesting photographs that I and (hopefully) other photographer / artist folks will enjoy. First, of course, I captured the photographs the client needed, then time to be creative.
A few new fun and visually interesting aerial photographs from a recent drone flight at a construction site in the Denver, Colorado area.
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.
Many thanks to the editors at Fokus, Sweden’s weekly news magazine, for this amazing display of my photographs created recently on assignment for them. I spent 2 days documenting the business of cannabis here in Colorado.
Below are 6 new non-traditional landscape photographs from my ongoing project, On The Road. The photographs are not manipulated, and are an attempt to capture the beauty of the landscape as I pass, usually en-rout to an assignment.
3 black and white portraits from an executive portrait shoot here in Denver recently. We wanted the portraits to convey his personality, style and commanding presence while still being approachable.
Two of my favorite portraits from a recent assignment. I love the mood and tone created by each.
