I've noticed lately that I always tend to compose images - even in personal work - with an eye toward type space. The thought entered my mind briefly that maybe this isn't always the most creative way to shoot, and then I decided that creativity for the sake of art. per se, is one thing, and creativity for advertising is an entirely different thing. Making my living as an advertising and editorial shooter, it makes sense to always think in terms of publishing the work, so I guess the message to myself is that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I am constantly scouting new and interesting locations for commercial assignments, and Boulder, Colorado is a place that never disappoints. I made these images while scouting scenic backdrops on Boulder Reservoir for a fashion shoot. Unfortunately, I shot them as low-res Jegs, thinking that they were only location test shots. After seeing the final images in post, I decided that I will shoot "everything" in Raw from now on. Live and learn.

It's not a regular habit, although I was lucky enough, recently, to have my camera with me on the drive home. I was sitting in rush hour traffic and was temporarily blinded by what turned out to be a ray of amazing late-day sunlight reflecting off of a traffic sign. I jumped out of the car and got this image just before the light changed.


After several years of shooting for the adventure sports industry, I've decided to add more advertising product and people work back into my itinerary. I started out as a commercial product shooter, and I've missed that type of work for a while. After a lifetime in adventure sports, I am hoping to incorporate those skills into an industry that I've been passionate about for as long as I can remember.

I'm currently shooting work for my new website, which should be online soon. The older images here will not be displayed on that site, although I've had so much positive feedback on them, over the past several years, that I've decided to keep them posted on this blog as an historical representation of what I've been doing over the years. I hope that you enjoy them and that they inspire you to go out and play
