Anything to do with Utah

Impermanence II — a performing-art nude series

Impermanence II — a performing-art nude series

For Impermanence II, my collaborator was Katie Alderson –– a performing artist who I’d seen perform at a couple local events. She was petit, pretty and had a confident edge to her. I had seen some of her movements onstage and after a few conversations, knew that she would bring a dimension to the series that I hadn’t anticipated originally. MORE PHOTOS

SUP first Descent of Utah’s Escalante River

SUP first Descent of Utah’s Escalante River

IT’S BEEN PUBLISHED !! As an adventure photographer, I struggle with deciding whether or not to publish something. Especially in my own backyard. Some places are meant to stay secret! But when done right, it can bring awareness to an area and keep conservation efforts high. The Escalante was one of many magical tributaries that… MORE PHOTOS

Why do I shoot alone?

Why do I shoot alone?

I recently had one of my all-time best days of shooting. And of course, I was alone. I endured freezing rain, massive, powerful gusts of wind and shivered until the night turned to light. If this sounds torturous… well, that’s because to some degree it was. But at the same time it was invigorating, it was exciting and when the darkest midnight hues warmed to light, baby blue, it can be more than worth it. MORE PHOTOS

Together the ribbons of water, the tarnish on the cliff and the colorful leaves of fall have all the elements of a dream photograph. But each time I return home and begin editing, my mind starts spinning and I think, “I could have done more. Maybe if I moved an inch to the left I could have made the composition more balanced… Moved back and given the tree more breathing room… Opened the shutter for another 2 seconds…”. MORE PHOTOS

Canyonlands: The Maze to the Dollhouse

Now before I get into the nitty-gritty, and I truly mean nitty-gritty, I must preface that I have been 4-wheel driving my whole life. I remember hanging onto the “Oh-shit” bar when I was a wee tyke in the back of my dad’s Izuzu Trooper. My young companions often comparing the bouncing and swaying to… MORE PHOTOS

More Moab biking: Gemini Bridges and Amasa Back

Nothing like an impromptu Moab biking trip! And the best (worst) part about the whole trip is it all started with Instagram. I saw a picture of my buddy Spencer dropping a rock and I said to myself, “That’s fucking Moab!” One call later, I was packing my truck full of  gear. Lucky for me… MORE PHOTOS

Classic Moab: Mag 7 and the Enchilada

Why not call all your friends from all periods of your life to meet in the one and only Moab? Especially when they are all rippers and are some of the funn(i)iest people around? Well, that’s exactly what I did. After all, I now live in Utah. Seven of us converged from Colorado, Utah and… MORE PHOTOS
