Pick Your Own Fruit :: Montana Commercial & Editorial Photographer
Pick Your Own Fruit :: Montana Commercial & Editorial Photographer

Last summer I spent time driving around Montana searching for the best places to pick your own fruit.  My search took me from the shores of Flathead Lake to fields of strawberries outside of Missoula.  I learned that organic orchards often use sheep to clean up fallen fruit and that picking strawberries in the early […]

One year — or at least almost :: Montana Photographer
One year — or at least almost :: Montana Photographer

It’s almost been a year since we left the Flathead Valley.  Now we are moving again — only this time it’s to a place here in Missoula that will probably be our address for the foreseeable future.  What is really hard to believe is that it has almost been a year since Lido and I […]

Published :: Glacier County Honey for Montana Magazine :: Montana Editorial Photographer

  Standing in a field so full of bees that my body was vibrating with the hum of their buzzing was a first.  So was finding out that raising bees outside Glacier National Park means that sometimes bears eat your bee hives.  Working on this story and photographing the folks at Glacier County Honey Company […]

Dreamy Garden Moment :: Montana Editorial and Commercial Photographer

  It’s beautiful outside here in Missoula.  It makes me think back to this beautiful garden outside San Francisco that I photographed as a part of an interior shoot.  Can’t beat California sunshine — or a garden with a vineyard.

Spring is here … or at least on it’s way.  Some mornings here in Montana we are still waking up to snow on the ground.  I can’t say I’m thrilled about that.  It’s nice to hear the birds are back — I figure they know better when the temperatures will really head in the right […]

The Blizzard of ’14
The Blizzard of ’14

If you weren’t sure, here’s proof that it’s winter.  This person won’t be getting into their car for a bit.  The past five days have been a snowy mess here in Missoula including several avalanches, icy airport runways, and school closures.  I ventured out last Friday in the middle of the blizzard for a walk […]

Winter on Seeley Lake :: Montana Photographer
Winter on Seeley Lake :: Montana Photographer

We woke up here in Missoula to softly falling snow.  It’s the most we’ve had in a bit and it makes me wonder how much more snow there is up at Seeley Lake.  A couple weeks ago we set out on a weekend adventure there with some good friends.  The snow on the frozen lake […]

February on Ice :: Montana Photographer
February on Ice :: Montana Photographer

While we were on the road in the Flathead there were mornings where the mercury read -30.  Ya’ll.  That’s just wrong.  Despite the frigid temps we took a quick self timer shot on Whitefish Lake.  In all the running around shooting for other folks we are trying to make sure we make some photographs for […]

2014 Whitefish Winter Carnival :: Montana Editorial Photographer

This past weekend Lido and I headed north to Whitefish and I photographed one of the town’s annual events: The Whitefish Winter Carnival.  This year’s theme was Viva Las Vegas — so of course the grand marshall of the parade was Wayne Newton.  It was fun to be back in a community we called home […]

2013 Year in Review :: It’s a doozy :: Missoula, Montana Editorial and Commercial Photographer
2013 Year in Review :: It’s a doozy :: Missoula, Montana Editorial and Commercial Photographer

The end of the year is always a nice time to step back and look at what you’ve accomplished, what’s changed, and where you are going.  2013 was a year of huge changes from start to finish.  Lido and I are now in a new city and both working full time for ourselves.  This is […]

We’ve Moved! :: Montana Editorial Photographer

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour […]

Up The Mountain :: Montana Photographer

October is one of my favorite months.  It’s that last breath before the rush of the holidays. Fall is here in full swing in Montana and I always feel like there is never enough time to soak it all up.  I have lots of editorial and commercial shoots to blog and I’m working to catch […]

Farms :: Crack in the Sidewalk
Farms :: Crack in the Sidewalk

This past April I had a chance to visit the Crack in the Sidewalk Farmlet in South Atlanta.  What began as a small, personal garden has grown into a farm that is a regular participant in local farmers markets including one in East Atlanta and another in Grant Park.  The farm is located within a […]

Travel :: Sutro Bath Ruins in San Francisco :: Montana Photographer

Golden Gate Park is spectacular.  After a long day of shooting followed by a day of meetings, it was nice to drink some tea and unwind here among the trees and ocean.  San Francisco you really are absolutely beautiful.  These ruins, originally part of a public bath house, are now a sight to see along […]

Farms :: White Oak Pastures :: Montana Photographer
Farms :: White Oak Pastures :: Montana Photographer

White Oak Pastures is quite an operation.  Encompassing 1,000 acres of certified organic land and located in Bluffton, Georgia, the farm has a family history going back five generations.  This history and ecological commitment show in their treatment of the animals, the land, and their family.  In 1995 Will Harris III decided to work returning […]

Farms :: Babe and Sage
Farms :: Babe and Sage

I’ve been working for sometime on a project profiling young organic farmers.  This past April I spent some time in Georgia continuing this project and it was as rewarding as always.  I drove from Atlanta out to Gordon, Georgia and spent a day with Chelsea Losh and Bobby Jones.  They were fascinating to talk with […]

It’s a Wrap :: 2012 Year in Review

This. Year. Flew. By. Writing an end of the year post is always kind of hard to me.  It’s hard to sum up everything that happens in a year.  Impossible really.  This year there was so much — so fast.  It was a year that connected a lot of things together for me and tore […]

Walking in Italy
Walking in Italy

This summer has been moving at what seems like a million miles an hour.  But in May, Lido and I stopped and took a break from the constant, mad rush of life for 15 days in Italy.  We walked, and ate, and relaxed, and shot photos.   Now, four months later, it feels like a […]
