Yep, I'm 31 years of age today and I'm a little in shock. Last summer I was enjoying my day with my classmates, teachers and assistants at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula Montana! Today I'm home trying not to clean or do laundry on my day but it's just got to be done. I took some time this morning to edit a few photographs that I have taken in the past few weeks. I needed some me time on my day so I took it and had an absolute blast.

These are random fine art photographs that for some reason or another popped out at me while viewing and choosing photographs to edit.

Travels to McCall

On May 22nd 2010 my beautiful partner and I hit our seventh year 'partnership' anniversary! On this date we had the most awesome experience of photographing my first official wedding. Amy assisted me on the shoot and did the best job, I couldn't have done it without her. To Amy, thank you for spending our anniversary with me helping another beautiful couple enjoy their most special day!

These are photographs of the scenery and weather we dealt with on the drive up to McCall. It was a typical late spring day in Idaho... Sun, Rain, Snow, Wind, High Clouds, Beautiful Sunset! The last photograph is of the view from Shore Lodge where the wedding ceremony and reception were held. We couldn't have asked for a better day in McCall for a wedding shoot. Thank God we weren't in Boise where it was snowing like crazy! View on....

Two Beautiful Women - Continued

These are photographs made during out last re-location down in the Linen District. By this time it had been a little over an hour into our shoot. Everyone was very comfortable and having a lot of fun. All I can say about this shoot is thank God I'm a photographer because I wouldn't miss this for the world! Thank you two for having such great energy. You and people like you make my job absolutely amazing!

Sober OUT!

Two Beautiful Women

Last month I had the great pleasure to work, again, with the most amazing Sarah Ober and our new friend Nicole Velasquez. What a perfect pair for this shoot. We went in only knowing the location and wardrobe but didn't plan much for the shoot. I was lucky enough to arrive at Sarah's house to help the ladies finalize their outfits and also, most importantly I got to watch them interact! The pre-shoot 'organization' if you will was one hell of a good time. Sarah and Nicole have a very fun lovin' relationship. They're both easy going but highly intelligent. They were completely comfortable around each other, almost like they'd known each other their whole lives. After registering this important information we headed toward our location, took the camera out and shot shot shot!!! Thank both of you ladies for the fun experience.

These are a few examples of the first area of our shoot on the shady side of the Linen Building in Boise, Idaho! Click on image to enlarge...

New Creations!

Wow, when I knew I hit the technology overload stage about a month ago I had no idea when I'd be back... Well, I'm back! I have not stepped away from creating during my technology break, I have increased the creations by the handful!!! I plan to catch you up on the most resent photo shoots, paintings, and or what ever else I find that's worth showing.

These photographs were made with Canon G11. My buddies Pro Point and Shoot that I'm so excited to be able to work with. As you can tell I pushed the limit and more than likely crushed the DONT'S in photography editing... I'm sure I've said it before though... It never hurts to break a few rules!
