Jackson Hole Trip

One of my ongoing series, and probably the focus for my photo show this year, is the Flagstaff Farmers market. I try and bring some kind of camera every time we go and make a few photographs.




One of our old master printer friends, Richard Jackson, asked for some help putting together a BUNCH of photographic capture formats (film and digital of all sizes) that he will assemble into a workshop discussing the options available to photographers, and what printing from an 8x10 negative vs a 35mm vs an iPhone might do to your prints. Get a dozen photographers together in the rain to make the same picture on 18 different formats.



Then, of course, we had to hit the Overland Expo, which is held every year at Mormon Lake, only a few miles from Flagstaff. We wandered out there this year and camped for the weekend to get the full (windblown) experience. While we were there, we got to test out the new Tumblers from Canyon Coolers, who I have worked with extensively.




Double dinner trouble. Mac n Cheese AND brats!


At the end of May, I had the chance to head up to Jackson Hole, WY to visit a printing client, David Brookover, and take part in a video series called The Art of Photography.

While I was there, I made sure to get the camera out a few times and see what the Grand Teton National Park had to offer. I was not disappointed!











Here is the video that shows some of the Behind The Scenes from Ted Forbes' perspective (he's the reason we got to go in the first place, and he's an awesome dude)

Late Night Starscapes at Snowbowl

My friend Abe Snider, a serious pro at astrophotography, invited me up for a night of no sleep, near-freezing temperatures, and a genre of photography I know almost nothing about.

Naturally, I took him up on it.

While he made incredible milky way panoramas, I nuked the ISO and played around trying to make a portrait of him.

I didn't get particularly close, and I made a bunch of horrible photos, but it was fun!

Sutcliffe Vinyards in black and white

This last weekend, Kristen and I traveled with some of the crew from Hidden Light up to Sutcliffe Vineyards, where we photographed, ate, and drank ourselves silly.

Here is the series in black and white.
