In an effort to push myself and create images outside my comfort zone, I’ve started to work on a series of black and white portraits. This is a personal project that I’m working on, for the sole purpose of challenging myself creatively. I’ve been working on the post processing quite a bit, toying with textures and experimenting with different B&W conversions. All of these shots were taken with a 50mm lens at f/1.8, to give them an extremely shallow depth of field.  Everything is coming together and I’m finally beginning to get the look I had envisioned. Please let me know what you think, as this is a work in progress and your feedback will only make the collective set of images stronger!

I had a great shoot this morning with a beautiful St. Bernard named Sepi. There are two St. Bernards that live here at the Portillo Hotel. Sepi is only 1 year old, but must weigh at least 120 pounds! He absolutely loves the snow and would roll in it to cool off! Here’s one of the photos…

We’re going to go skiing this afternoon when it warms up a bit. The snow was so good yesterday that I skied all day, so I’m pretty worked today. I am going to take it easy this morning, then hit the slopes for an afternoon session. tomorrow, I’ll ski in the morning then head to the airport in the afternoon. I’m taking the overnight flight to SLC for the Outdoor Retail Tradeshow.

I had planned to go climbing at Rocky Mountain National Park today, but I tweaked my knee a little bit 2 days ago at the climbing gym. So I am resting and letting it heal 100%. Today I set up a little studio shoot with my dogs. Lindsey and I always joke that it’s Kodak’s dream to be on the cover of a dog magazine, since he’s always such a good model. Roxy, on the other hand, never cooperates. Its pretty much impossible to get her to stand still! Here’s a shot that I am really psyched on!

In two weeks, I am heading down to Chile for a ski trip with my dad. Then I fly straight to Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show and to shoot the big climbing comp they have every year. In September, I am going to begin production of our new movie called The Players. The first trip will be to Vietnam with Chris Lindner. So don’t worry, there’s going to be a lot more action sports content on this blog soon…
