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 […]

Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival :: Montana Editorial Photographer

At the end of last summer I spent a couple days in Bigfork, Montana photographing the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival and Workshop.  This last year has brought a consistent challenge of both writing and photographing stories simultaneously.  It’s been a difficult thing to try and do both well.  Lift your camera and you […]

Missoula Symphony Orchestra for Montana Magazine :: Montana Editorial & Commercial Photographer

At the end of last year I spent some time writing and photographing a story about the Missoula Symphony Orchestra’s 60th anniversary for Montana Magazine.  How could you not enjoy an assignment that sends you to music rehearsal and backstage during a performance?  It’s definitely been a challenge writing and photographing stories simultaneously this past year. […]

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 […]

  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 […]

There are some assignments that, once finished, leave you feeling better than when you started.  This assignment was one of those experiences for me.  When I got the call from Poets and Writers Magazine that I would be photographing bestselling, mystery author James Lee Burke I was more than a little nervous.  He’s a well […]

Diren Dede Shooting for Stern Magazine :: Montana Editorial Photographer

Sometimes there are stories that you cover that really stay with you.  Long after you are finished editing you still think about them.  On April 27th, German exchange student Diren Dede was shot and killed in his neighbor Markus Kaarma’s garage.  The investigation is ongoing.  I spent several days the week following his death working […]

Published :: Country Living :: Butterfly Herbs in Missoula, Montana

Missoula is a great town and has so many great places to discover.  I was thrilled when Country Living asked me to contribute to their online project chronicling special spots in all 50 states.  I of course had to recommend one of my favorites, Butterfly Herbs.  If you want loose tea, a gift for a […]

Earlier this year I had the chance to shoot Lida Running Crane for Community Medical Center’s in-house publication.  Lida was so nice and easy to spend an afternoon with.  She runs a program providing food for kids in need in the school system.  She fills backpacks with healthy options and recipes for families to cook […]

Kalispell Kreamery for Montana Magazine :: Montana Photographer

The last couple years I’ve started consistently covering agricultural, farm, and food stories more regularly.  From my ongoing work shooting young organic farmers to a personal project on the Serenbe community in Georgia, the nexus of food, community and agriculture has become work that pulls me back again and again.  So this past summer I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
