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.

Magazine Cover from a Photography shoot in Denver

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Marijuana Business Magazine for their current cover. As a photographer living here in Denver, I always enjoy this type of on-location executive portrait commission. The light, weather and backdrop are always changing but the thing that remains a constant is my goal to create a photograph that my client, subject and myself are all happy with.

New Portraits from a ranch in Colorado

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.

Empowering Portrait in Colorado

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.

Moody, Powerful Athlete Portraits

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!

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.
