Bella’s mother Ingrid, a friend of mine, asked me to take some portfolio shots of her daughter. I am always happy to shoot so we headed out to Sun Valley.

After a few months of drooling over photos on the internet of Pete Wilsons Subaru WRX I finally met up with him during a recent trip to Boise.



Along with Pete, Nate joined us with his Chevy.



I was messing around with all sorts of different processing. I see myself sticking to one style for a whole set in the future.

Ali + Hanna: Vintage Inspired Shoot

18 Jan 2011 / 0 Comments / in Inspiration, photography

Hanna mentioned that she has some super rad dresses that her Grandma made and asked if I had some time for a little shoot. OF COURSE I said yes. The thought started snowballing in my mind…Vintage dresses? Vintage and classic location? Oh my back yard, the Sun Valley Resort! So after a few weeks of talking about it we set a date and the girls applied their glam. Ali joined us and the two opened my eyes realllll wide. ┬áHere are two of my favorites. Many more when you CLICK


Seriously people if you have a creative idea hit me up about it.
Ali and Hanna. I love you two to the moon and back.

put some colours on

This pice was straight up spontaneous. I had my 7D set to continous shooting and begun taking photos of my friends without the intention of making a video. However once I previewed the photos in order on my computer they started to tell a story. I then opend one photo up in phtoshop and recoreded my color correction edits as an action. Then I automated and batched the entire set of photos. Then dragged them in to a sequence in final cut and threw a Calvin Harris song called Put Some Colours On. This isnt the first time I have explored stop motion. Here is a video I created awhile ago.

So I went with it again and I am pretty happy with the out come. I see integrating this technique in to my professional shoots.

My other Job

15 Jan 2011 / 1 Comment / in photography, work

This year is my first year as a Ski Instructor for Sun Valley Co. I never thought I enjoyed kids until I started teaching them how to improve their skiing abilities. We have so much fun ripping around baldy and exploring the giant play ground. It is a super rewarding job because I watch their skills improve over the day. I wont go in to too much detail right now but I really do enjoy breaking off a pice of what I know for others. Anyways this is where i work. I took this photo on Christmas day. Yes I worked for three weeks straight even holidays and freakin loved it.

Oh and after 20 years of living in Hailey I finally moved to Ketchum. Here is the view from my bedroom.

More recently I have been assisting Sun Valley with their Race Clinics. I hop on the lift a few hours before the mt is open carry the gates up help set them, and maintain the course.

My long time friend, mentor, and Supervisor of Ski School, Nick is hiring me to cover the clinics media. That includes managing their facebook page, photos, and videos. I am super stoked on this opportunity because I love to ski, take photos, video, and socialize.

Stay tuned!
