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.

  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 […]

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 […]

spring strawberries :: montana photographer

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 […]

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 […]

  A while back I photographed chef Linton Hopkins for the folks over at Whole Foods.  If you are in the Johns Creek, Georgia store you can check out one of my photos in the bread department.  If I were you I’d grab some of this bread too — because it is pretty stinking delicious. […]

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

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

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 […]

The Event at Rebecca Farm :: Montana Commercial Photographer

The last couple years I’ve been asked to photograph The Event at Rebecca Farm for the group that presents this world-class equestrian competition.  It is normally at the height of summer and I feel lucky to spend the day in such a stunning location photographing horses and their riders.  It’s beautiful every time.  This year […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
