SJK :


If you're reading this you probably already know that in this industry, as a photographer, you pretty much have to have 'it' in your book before anyone is going to trust you enough to hire you to shoot it.  There just isn't a lot of gambling going on out there.  But this fall we actually had the awesome opportunity to shoot the rebrand of Slumberjack - a hunting and camping brand with a huge amount of heritage - even though we didn't have anything REMOTELY like that in the portfolio.  And it was an awesome two days up in the mountains of northern Colorado with some men and women who are definitely pros.  A big shout out goes not only to the awesome people at Slumberjack for giving us the opportunity, but also to the team at Outback Outdoors for all of the authenticity they brought to the table - they are the real deal!

#ilovethemiddleofnowhere :


It's been a very busy past month of work and for my kiddo's spring break we had a chance to escape out to the Utah and Colorado high desert for a week of play and an assignment for Family Fun Magazine.  I grew up in Northern New Mexico - Georgia O'Keeffe country - and I do admit to loving the big open views and huge sky over head.  I love being in the middle of nowwhere and the Four Corners region will always have a special place in my heart, so it was a big treat to get to share it with my kids.  Here are some BTS along the way.

Portland!?!? :


We shot three great days in Portland this week - yes in Portland - crazy I know.  I got to drive to work instead of the airport, which is definitely nice when it happens.  Can't say much more about it at this point other than sharing a few BTS of the VERY hard work that it was.

Fresh_Produce :


A big thank you to Fresh Produce for an awesome shoot this week in Carpenteria and Santa Barbara.  You guys were so awesome to work with and locations couldn't have been any more perfect for your brand.  This one was spot on and I can't wait to see it all come to life.  The one thing that I learned though for sure is to not let the models use your phone as a prop or you might find some interesting photos in the camera role.  Thanks so much for those little surprises!

Fruit :


We had a fantastic week shooting another campaign in LA for Fruit of the Loom with the very awesome peeps at Crispin, Porter and Bogusky.  I can't say that it is all that often that we recieve a creative brief for bid that looks like this and I just wan't you CPB kids to know that the feeling is mutual.  Can't even begin to let you know how psyched I am that you brought us back for another round of a very cool creative - thanks so much!

Smoke_and_Mirrors :


I guess one important element of being a photographer is having the ability to spin a viewer's response to an image a certain way and one of the responses that I get from clients all the time is "Oh, you're the natural light guy," or "I see you don't use lights and just work with the sun,"or "What we really love about your work is how you capture the sun in just the right spot - it just feels so bright and happy," - to which I say - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!  Though, to be honest, we work REALLY hard to make, if not capture, those gorgeous, happy, uplifting, rays of sun to spin it in just that way!  YES, I do love natural light - it is what creates the foundation of realness in an image - but when we don't find it we are always ready to make it.  So yes, I love my strobes just as much (ok, maybe almost as much) as my sun!
