A Different Perspective

I work a few hours each week with the organization Madelife in Boulder as a photography mentor. I enjoy getting to share my love for and knowledge of photography with other hungry creatives. A couple of weeks ago I was talking with one of the apprentices about changing your perspective and brought up a few photos of mine as an example. I then flipped the images to show how you can gain a new perspective just by rotating an image...and BAM I loved my new images!

I went to St. Peter's in the Vatican in 2009, and while waiting for the Pope to speak I was standing around bored. I started photographing people's shadows on the cobblestone and I loved the shapes it made.

But by rotating the images you get a whole new image that I think I love even more! 

Play. Experiment. Change your perspective!

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.
