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.
Here are 3 architectural photographs from a shoot last night of The new Goddard School here in the Highlands, Denver. I am continuously amazed by what is now possible when using a drone for aerial photography.
Architects, Developers, Builders; do you want your project captured in a photograph like this? Give me a ring, we’ll make it happen!
I have been commissioned to fly a few drone sessions at large construction sites here in Colorado recently. My client wanted mostly HD video, but also a few photographs, too. Below are two of the photographs that jumped out at me – what an amazing perspective the drone can offer!
I’m proud to share the current issue of Marijuana Business Magazine with my photograph on the cover. It was an interesting concept, and great to collaborate with the team at the magazine to make this cover happen!
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.
My friend Joe asked me to write up a quick blog post for him at his Mirrorless Photo Tips blog about what it takes to get a commercial drone pilot license. Here is a link to that post: http://mirrorlessphototips.com/how-i-became-a-licensed-commercial-drone-pilot/
And indeed, I am a licensed, insured commercial drone pilot available for hire (think video or aerial photography of a large construction project, industrial sites or even scenic real estate photography) here in the Denver area, throughout Colorado or anywhere, really.
Below are a few portraits of Laura, working in her studio in Denver. She graciously allowed me in to photograph her at work and create a few environmental portraits of her in her element.
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.
I’ve introduced entrepreneur and restaurateur Ryan here: https://matthewstaver.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/a-portrait-of-entrepreneurship/
Below are a small selection of photographs capturing Ryan’s journey through creating and opening DiFranco’s in this quintessential tale of entrepreneurship. I believe they offer insight into this often overlooked process – revealing emotion and risk while weaving threads of the economy, the quest for a better quality of life and community betterment into the seemingly simple process of opening a small restaurant.
This was a self-assigned personal project that has yet to find a good home in print.
I am drawn to entrepreneurship. Being present at the start or early stages of a new venture is exhilarating. The air is so thick with excitement, possibility and mission that the atmosphere changes, thickens almost, and can permeate anyone who pushes into its sphere.
Ryan DiFranco conjured this sort of atmosphere as he created his new restaurant, DiFranco’s. He was gracious and generous and allowed me to be a part of his process, inside the sphere of entrepreneurship. While inside, I made a documentary style picture story that begins to capture and convey this spirit and process of entrepreneurship through the undertaking of opening a small restaurant.
As an introduction to Ryan and this unpublished picture story, here are two portraits of the entrepreneur himself.
