Architectural photographs from Arizona

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.

New Portraits of an Opera Singer

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.

Wedding Photography for The New York Times

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.

Portrait Photography in Colorado

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.

Beautiful Drone Photographs

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.

Environmental Portrait session with Liz

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.

New business portraits

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.

Great display in Fokus Magazine

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.
