It’s almost February?

Time flies man, time files.  I have been so caught up in getting, well, caught up with things for 2014 that I didn’t even realize that January is well on its way to being over.  With that said, its time for some updates and catching up…

I was in Michigan in mid-November working on a new personal piece based around the opening day of deer season and how it is a very uniquely American event, especially in the upper Midwest.  I shot stills and motion and recorded audio as well and I have someone writing a nice essay for it as well so, it will be turned into a nice multimedia piece soon.  In the mean time, you can see a sample of work on my site here.

I spent about 10 days down in the Bahamas shooting stills and video for a fly fishing lodge on South Andros island.  In addition to being an amazing chance to produce some new work and to itch that travel bug, I was also able to get some killer fishing in.  Ive spent a good bit of my life fishing and it even landed me in Alaska for an extended period as a guide in a past life so, you could say Im kinda into these sorts of things.  It can be tough with a camera in hand and wishing you were fishing but sometimes the opposite happens where Ive got a rod in hand and wish I was shooting – its a good problem to have.  Anyways, the lodge I worked with featured some work here but you can also see an extended gallery on my site here.  Im working on getting some motion edited for this and it should be ready any day now.

Since Ive been back from my various trips its back to business and things have been progressing nicely.  I have a few bids out and am up for a few larger editorial gigs and that always makes me happy.  Im looking forward to working with new clients and solving new problems – it really is one of the best parts of the job.  Now, speaking of bids and clients and the like, I am pleased to announce that I am now represented by Agency MJ and without them, I wouldn’t be pushing forward the way I have lately.  You’ll be hearing more about this soon…

So, lots and lots going on and lots and lots of new images being made.  Head on over to the site and take a look around.  There will be plenty more coming online as soon as Im back from Minnesota to shoot some ice fishing the first week of February.  With any luck Ill get frostbite and won’t be able yo write lengthy blog posts any more….

 

 

Boy meets internet

This is a few days old now as I have been frantically trying to renovate an old 1920’s victorian home and now move into it but I need to post this because it is so cool.

I was interviewed what seems like months ago after being anonymously nominated for this piece.  I think I know who it was but can’t confirm as of yet…  Regardless, its a cool piece and somehow I managed not to make myself sound like a pompous ass or an idiot when answering these questions.  All in all, Im flattered to be featured and the response so far has been great.

 

Take a look, check it out and get back to me….
