North Dakota (and Montana) in motion

Finishing up another shoot in the Williston, North Dakota + Eastern Montana area (the Bakken) for a client – I decided to take a break this evening and edit some personal photographs from the trip.  Below are 8 new additions to my ongoing On The Road project of non-traditional landscape photographs.  I passed by many more fantastic scenes on this shoot – but traffic and construction in this part of the country right now make conditions too dangerous for me to work on this alone a large portion of the time.

Here is a more abstract set of landscape photographs from Spain + Portugal that move my project a little further.  Still, however, attempting to capture the spirit of the landscape I pass in a unique style and always with a real photograph.

New OTR photographs – The spaces and places in between

Below is another addition to my ongoing project, On The Road; a series of non-manipulated photographs capturing the essence of a landscape in a very non-traditional way.  Often my work takes me to remote or rural locations that require hours of driving to reach.  The spaces and places in between offer their beauty as the miles roll by.  With these photographs I hope to capture a bit of the soul of the land I pass and a glimpse into the lives lived upon it.

6 photographs at the intersection of man & nature

Another day began, as many promising days do, with myself in an unfamiliar car and rural miles extending ahead as far as I can see.  On this day the dreary morning was welcome; rain for the ranchers and farmers I was passing by and would soon meet is so deeply needed here.

Strobed Battle Photographs; Outside

A recent weekend of heavy combat, fencing, and other Medieval and Renaissance activities provided a prime opportunity to create some visually interesting photographs with my new Fujifilm X100s camera.  Combining the ability of the camera to sync with flash at shutter speeds faster than most cameras and this amazing event resulted in some interesting photographs.  All are .jpgs straight out of the camera – not even opened in Photoshop.
