These are some images from Cassie’s session out at swan falls dam. It was right as the fire season was going through. The sunlight coming through the smokey haze added the perfect amount of reddened fill light.

Here are some of the images Karly and I shot out at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. It’s an amazing location to photograph at. If you have a spare afternoon, the Old Idaho Penitentiary is well worth a few hours to walk through.

Springtime motorcycle riding is here. I like to get off work early and take a ride out to Swan Falls Dam. Warm weather and beautiful, wide open desert plains make for a great afternoon trip.

Here are a couple of shots from Hilary’s recent session:

Cell phone shots from last nights outing.

Booker was training for a recent competition at his workplace. Here are some of the selects from his fitness session.

And here is a side by side to show where he started and finished.  It’s amazing what hard work and a disciplined diet can achieve.

These are stills from an upcoming time lapse series I’ve been working on while. It has been a really fun side project to spend some time on. Photographing time lapses really makes me rethink our perception of time. I realized how many amazing moments I miss on a day to day basis, mainly because events happen over hours and days, rather than the few seconds my attention span has to focus on it.

One of the nice parts of winter is I can finally get caught up on post work. Here are some shots we did last fall for Robyn’s fitness portfolio.

This was a surprise session for Greg and his two daughters. They wanted to do a fun shoot that would really let their personalities show through. I tried to keep the shoot as simple as possible. I used a medium grey backdrop and a single softbox in a butterfly style lighting setup with the intention of the finals being in black and white. I gave them a space to work in and simple instructions.

Paper camera series.

This is a shot from a timelapse I did in Jerome over Christmas. I never really took the time to watch the stars until that night. I would always look up for a second, admire, then return my attention to whatever was in front of me. That night, I spent hours watching the stars turn. I was amazed at how much stuff falls out of the sky and burns up in the atmosphere. More shooting stars than I could count.

These are photos taken recently of the barn that is on my family’s farm down in Jerome. I found solace standing in its weathered boards. Comfort, in that, as I struggle with the biggest creative wall I’ve ever faced. It was able to give me inspiration again. It had been almost a decade since I had set foot in it. It was so strange to be there again. So many memories. To see it now is like watching an old friend slowly pass away.

Here are some of the images from Valerie and Ariana’s portrait session.

Swan Falls Dam

First night shooting with the robotic slider. I packed up and drove out to the swan falls dam.

Skies were mostly clear, with the occasional high altitude cloud. The moon was reflecting light from roughly 5/8ths it’s face. I was   surprised at the amount of light the moon reflected. Light from it reflected off of the earth and gave the skyline an almost Erie blue glow. Should make for a great colored timelapse  with strong cold toned sky and warm toned lights mounted on the dam.

The robot was simple to setup. The initial test exposure looked amazing. I started the system and waited. It was a little over three hours to complete. I layed on my camera case for the first hour and watched the sky. The stars were bright and the occasional piece of space junk would fall creating a small shooting star.

It was quiet except for a few rabbits running in the brush and the dull mechanical  humming of the dam. I felt cold laying on the ground.

I’ll have to figure out something more to do with my time. I don’t know if my mind played tricks on me or not…. Off in the distance in the sky a large light appeared. Much brighter and larger than any of the stars. It looked like a large fireball. It did not move. Just burned. It stayed the for just a minute and then just vanished. It should show up in the time lapse. I’m wonder what it was. Here are a few slices of the frames (image numbers _MG_9793, _MG_9794, _MG_9795, _MG_9796) in sequence. Exposures were 20 seconds long and there was a 5 second delay between frames for the robot to move.

It was time to quit seeing things. I went to the truck and warmed up for a while.

After warming up I came back out and watched the sky again. It’s amazing how beautiful it was. That was one of the things i missed most about growing up on a farm. The deep black sky…

At about 10:20 pm the fish decided to start jumping. Shortly after, the robot finished it’s cycle. I was freezing again. I packed up and headed home.
