Powder, sunshine in Avoriaz, France

Powder, sunshine in Avoriaz, France

I do not know how for how long the snow fell, but by the time I hit the slopes the accumulative snowpack was reported at two meters. I’ve skied Utah, and this snow rivaled the “best snow on earth!” It was “blower”, “over the head”, “deepest day of the year”, etc. etc. MORE PHOTOS

All laughs: Skiing Teton Pass

All laughs: Skiing Teton Pass

To me skiing is about sharing. It can be a cold, sun-baked crust kind of day, but if you are with good people that make you smile, make you laugh, help you recover from some unfortunate life event, then sign me up for all the shitty days.

But when there’s powder… life becomes glorious. MORE PHOTOS

Chasing light on bikes in Moab

Chasing light on bikes in Moab

When sitting on top of a line and the light is fading, I, the man with the camera, who also loves to shred, is faced with a dilemma: Let go of the artist’s eye and just let gravity take hold or ask to go first, post up on a cool corner and try to capture my buddies blasting through the best section of trail.

Capturing fall in Coyote Gulch

Capturing fall in Coyote Gulch

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

 For the most part, when I’m shooting in the canyons during the brightest times of the day, I avoid including the sky. The tonal range from the depth of the canyon to the height of the canyon is too much for all cameras, even with today’s sensors. But sometimes, you see a shot that you… 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

Down the road: Sunset Arch and Willow Creek, Escalante

Down the road: Sunset Arch and Willow Creek, Escalante

The Escalante region doesn’t get as much attention as say, Arches or Zion, but it is certainly just as beautiful! A couple weekends back I decided to check out Sunset Arch. This geological wonder sits in the middle of the desert. From all directions, it’s nearly impossible to spot, but once you’re out there it’s… MORE PHOTOS
