This is just a taste of what you’ll find on the DVD, coming out this May. More climbs, more Players, more action! Additional “Players” you’ll see on the DVD include Dave Graham, Lisa Rands, and Daniel Woods.If you’re not in Boulder or SLC, check out the Stone Alliance Film Tour schedule for a show near you!!!

It’s been a while since I updated the blog with some of my photo work that has been recently published. That is because I have been working non stop on my current video project, The Players. Here are a few images from the climbing world that have made it out to the public!

First is an image from my trip to Vietnam with Joe Brooks and Chris Lindner. We were boating around Ha Long Bay looking for new deep water soloing. Amazing experience! As far as media goes, I was shooting video for Chris Lindner’s segment of The Players and photos for a story in Climbing Mag. The editors were nice enough to let me license an image to National Geographic Adventure before their story came out.

Second is a portrait I shot of Boulder’s Christian Griffith. CG is the owner of Verve, a climbing and yoga apparel company. He’s also one of the pioneers of modern sport climbing in the US! We shot this very quickly outside Verve’s shop in Boulder, Co. I used two Alien Bee 800’s to light the portrait, one to Christian’s right and one to the left. Check out the mag on newsstands now for CG’s full interview !

This weekend, we had to change the name of the tour to the Stone Alliance Film Tour.  Turns out John Long and other early Stonemasters are working on a book with the same name, and we see no need to crowd the climbing arena. There’s plenty of creativity to go around.

The Stone Alliance Film Tour represents the spirit of cooperation and mutual respect that climbers have long shared with each other in our love of the natural world and the sport that connects us with it.  The Stone Alliance Film Tour is the cooperative effort of three great directors on three separate films.  We extend an open invitation to climbing filmmakers everywhere in future seasons.

Our premier shows will be held in Boulder, Co and Salt Lake City, Ut on March 11. We have a big schedule of additional shows all around the world to follow. Check www.StoneAllianceTour.com for showtimes and ticket info, as new shows are being added daily.

Loveland Pass is a location I’ve always kept in mind for a trailrunning shoot. Last fall, I headed back up to the pass with a model/friend and busted out a bunch of great running shots. By changing clothes, changing trails, and shooting both natural and artificial light, we were able to get several different looks out of 2 hours of shooting! My clients were psyched and two images have finally resurfaced in print.

About a month ago, my wife and I took a trip to Europe, traveling through Southern France, Italy, Switzerland, and Paris. I was not working on this trip, but managed to stay creative. I’ve been working on my panoramas while traveling. Stitching 10 or 20 frames together creates a really unique look. In my opinion, it captures the feeling of being there, looking around, and taking it all in. I’m still working on perfecting the technique, but here are a few I like!

I guess its time to publicly announce a little project I have been working on the last few months. Later this week, I’ll be shipping off the master for a DVD called Rewind. The idea behind this is to flash into the past. I have a ton of old footage that has never found a home, so I thought I might as well put it out there! In addition to all the previously unreleased footage, Rewind will include highlights from all my past films. This DVD is PACKED with climbing. the coolest part about this project is the price. We’ll be selling it for only $14.99. Be sure to ask for it at your local shop in February or order online at www.BSProductions.us. We’ll be set up for preorders soon…

I’d like to give props to Matt Moore at MWMGraphics.com for designing the cover art. This project is so different from anything I’ve ever done, I wanted to do the same with the promotion and packaging. Matt killed it!
