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.

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.

OTR by Train in Spain

A different mode of transportation and amazing terrain resulted in some wonderful new non-traditional landscape photographs from my recent trip to Spain and Portugal.  We spent a lot of time on various trains and trams which gave me plenty of opportunity to make a few new additions to my ongoing photography project, On The Road (OTR).  This first installment might look like photographs of a model, or maybe captured with a tilt-shift lens.  However, they are all real photographs (no manipulation or photoshop) captured with my Fujifilm X100s camera.

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.

OTR: Oil Boom Country – Bakken

I find myself back up in the Oil Boom country (the Bakken region) working on assignment.  The crazy weather  (snow + -20 + wind) makes for challenging photographic situations.  But the weather and logistics create a wonderful atmosphere for another installment of On The Road.  This project consists of photographs I create while driving to/from an assignment, usually on deadline, that hopefully captures the spirit of the landscape and place while utilizing photography in a novel way.
