The Stuff We Save

This fall my grandmother on my dad's side passed away leaving all her worldly possessions, which she had a few. She was a bit of a hoarder. But a lot of it was not junk; it was trinkets and things she brought back from traveling the world. After her funeral I knew I had to document the house before it was totally cleaned up to be sold. I am glad I did. I am told I would not recognize the house now that it's cleaned out.

It can seem crazy to us looking in at all of this stuff. It's so easy to think, "How could you let it get to this point." But for some people there is an attachment to the material things that defies all logic and reason.

I've worked all over her globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a diverse set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I'm hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I've created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot.

With my photography background firmly formed in the commercial advertising arena, I bring that attention to detail and technical process to adventure photography. And I've spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I'm not shooting for clients I'm out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my skis.

  1. I really enjoyed looking at these pictures. What a great idea to document this kind of thing. I'm sure many people wish they had done the same, including myself.
