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!
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.
A few new photographs from inside a Cannabis (marijuana) grow facility in Colorado.
A few photographs from the annual 4/20 celebration here in Denver this afternoon.
It is always a treat for me to meet and photograph a skilled entrepreneur, farmer or artist as they work to create something that has the potential to elevate an industry, transform sentiment or upturn convention. Recently I had such an opportunity, making photographs inside a Good Meds medical cannabis cultivation facility here in Denver. Growing Cannabis (marijuana) in Colorado isn’t new, but with the rapid approach of legal recreational marijuana being available to those so inclined (and over 21) from shops in Denver on Jan. 1st, attention on the subject has greatly increased.
Farming indoors is a feat I used to associate with survival in a post-apocalyptic movie. But over the last few years I have witnessed substantial crops being raised in warehouses across Denver. The photographs below are a few from an indoor Good Meds cultivation facility. The combination of entrepreneurship, agricultural skills and craftsmanship on display there was wonderful to experience. While complying with complex regulation they successfully grow a variety of strains and create a truly artisanal product.
I have had my new camera, the Fuji X100s, for a short while now and have been rather pleased with it as a camera and the photographs that can be made with it. I took it (and only it) to the 4/20 marijuana celebration in Denver yesterday and made a few available light, documentary style photographs, and a few using off camera flash.
