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!

New, Important Magazine Cover

I’m eager to share the current cover of Headwaters Magazine with my photograph of Amanda and her daughter in their home in Security, Colorado. Their water supply was recently reported as contaminated and Amanda and family (as well as most everyone else in their community) had been drinking from that contaminated tap for years.  Now they rely on bottled water.  Read the entire magazine here.

Colorado Mountain Portrait

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and photograph actress Katie Barberi this fall here in Colorado.  She was willing to head to a location I had scouted earlier in the day and even traipse through the woods a bit to stand in what looked like an odd choice for a portrait.  However, I’m glad she trusted me and was willing, because that location and her cooperation made the best photographs of the afternoon.
