  • Photoshop is a Great Place to Play There are shots that are created as God intended. Where the conditions, the subject, the technical elements and the composition all line up to create perfection at the moment of capture. Anyone who is an accomplished photographer has experienced this synergetic beauty, and strives to recreate the magic as often as possible. I’m no exception […]
  • Best Boxer Briefs for Outdoor Sports – A Totally Unscientific Review And now for my most ridiculous blog post yet. Laugh it up now, but you’ll thank me later. For years I’ve had a go-to in the performance underwear department. I’m embarrassed to say, I’ve put a LOT of miles on a particular pair. So earlier this summer when I was packing for a couple of […]

  • Replay – 12 Months of Skiing Presentation at REI Seattle A few weeks back I stepped out of my comfort zone and stood up in front of a large crowd to tell stories and show photos from my project: An Elevated State – 12 Months of Skiing in Washington. The venue was the impressive presentation room at REI’s Flagship store in Seattle. Despite the sunny […]
  • REI Social Media Partnership – A Big Win/Win Remember when I quit my job a while back? I do. I was nervous that I was starting from scratch.
