Excited to release the Fly Fishing Poler Stuff Adventure I shot on Vancouver Island. Full series coming soon!
Was happy to see a shot from the home I recently shot for dwell made it into the new “Rooms We Love” Special Issue. The rest of the home should be out soon in Dwells normal monthly. Big thanks to photo editor Anna for the assignment and Julia for the PDF!
Dow Griffith has a unique skill that has landed him a career of travel. Dow is one of Hollywood’s go-to Jungle Scouts. He helps directors/producers find the best places to shoot all across the world. Originally a documentarian himself, his unique knowledge of indigenous people and remote locations helped transition him into scouting. We had a blast shooting and trading fishing stories.
I honestly couldn’t imagine a better 30th Birthday present this week. This Sunday I will have 3 photos in the The New York Times Sunday Magazine. One of my dream clients! The story features Matt Dillon (Sitka & Spruce/Bar Sajor/Corson Building) and his salad preparation of the Pacific Northwest Octopus. The article is ONLINE NOW. Please do pickup a copy of the magazine this sunday.
This summer I set out to devote more time to two things I desperately needed more of; Personal Work & Time Outdoors. My WA State Fire Lookout project offered both of these things. It combined my loves of portraiture/exploration/landscapes and northwest history. I will continue to chip away at the 92 remaining lookout towers of WA State next summer but for now the project will pause. I cannot thank Filson enough for helping sponsor the project. Part 2 is live on the Filson Life Blog today. click HERE
Had a really fun shoot in Brooklyn with Justin Chearno (formally of bands Pitchblende, Panthers, LCD Soundsystem) at the home of his new natural wine Importing business. The feature is in the new quarterly publication Popular Noise which is a fresh non typical music publication that is now printed and hitting stores. You can see more about it HERE.
Im in a Sandlot themed Art Show this thursday at Porchlight Coffee. You should come! My piece is entitled “The Omen”
Got a random roll back from this past September in Maine. Really loved these 3 from the roll.
Recently traveled down to the bay area and photographed the men behind “Back to the Roots” Grow your own Mushroom kits. Martha Stewart Living featured them in their November issue featuring their annual American Made Awards. It was interesting the see the science/production facility behind their idea. Both were super nice dudes who deserve the praise.
Taken in Picabo Idaho
I somehow managed to sneak my way into an Outstanding In The Field Dinner at Skagit River Ranch cooked by my dear friends at Delancey. I was mostly fishing the mighty Skagit River and drinking beers/stealing brisket but I did manage to bring my Mamiya7 and sneek a few photos of the men behind the meal and my lovely girlfriend.
These kids were rad! I love everything about this out-take from my recent Idaho trip. Photos from the Dont Fail Idaho educational awareness campaign coming soon.
I’m super honored and proud to be among the featured photographers in PDN. PDN Magazine has always been a great way to get inspired and learn more about my industry as well as see who is doing great work within it. In the October issue (featuring Michael Jordan on the cover) I told my personal story of transitioning from assisting and part-time coffee job work into full-time freelance photography. It was fun to think back on all the things and people who made my dream of shooting full time come true. There is no one perfect way to turn photography into your full-time job but I hope the story helps to inspire some people to take the leap of faith and work hard at making their own transition into full-time.

It is always exciting to shoot for a publication you have admired/read for a long time. I had my first assignment for WIRED Magazine’s new September issue shooting a sleep deprivation study Boeing is currently conducting on pilots. It was not only a fun shoot but really interesting to witness. I never realized how real a flight-simulator would feel in addition to its look. Big Thanks to Kristen Fortier for the assignment!
Had the honor of shooting Larry McKaughan aka The King Of Vintage for Wallpaper* Magazine’s September issue. Larry has the definitive collection of American Workwear (including pieces dating back to the late 1800’s) and runs his own brand/showroom Heller’s Cafe. He has impeccable taste in collecting and it was truly an honor to meet and chat with him during our shoot. Wallpaper* has been such an important client for my career and I cant thank them enough for continuing to give me assignments nearly 3 years since our first; that are not only enjoyable but that are always presented in such a classy/well designed final spread. Cheers!
