Sea Kayaking Greece: Utah documentary photographer

Over the summer I got the chance to travel with the Girl Scouts of America to Greece. I have had the opportunity to guide trips and photograph them for the Scouts for the last handful of years. These girls aren’t just from Utah, but from all over the country. We spent the week sea kayaking around Kefelonia and Ithaca. Camping, staying in small towns, and eating the most delicious food. It’s great to spend the time with the girls, but also feels like I’m on a documentary photography vacation. Being able to photograph whatever I want, however I want. It feels like a week or two of developing my style and doing personal work. Here are a few images from the week that I was particularly fond of.

This was my second time in Greece. I finally felt like I got it this time. I think my first trip to the country, I was stressed out about the girls and couldn’t relax and take it all in. This time around, I am hooked. The amazing food, the shark-free crystal clear waters perfect for open water swims. I would easily return to this country over and over again.

New Website Update: Travel Photography

By this point, I think this travel photography update might be old news. I spend most of my summer traveling heavily. Heavily as in seven countries over the course of three months. With the exception of one trip through the Alps where I hit multiple countries in one go, each country was for at least a week if not longer. Trying to stay in one place or do one activity to really get to know a location. If I had my way I would spend a month or more in each place. But perhaps that will be saved for more travel this fall or spring.

 

At some point along the way, I updated my website. It’s a bit of old news now that I have a million more photos to go through and do another update. In the meantime, go check it out. The portion I updated was my travel photography section. It involves images from here and abroad. Go check it out before it all changes again.travel photography, travel photographers, utah travel photography, utah travel photographers, salt lake travel photographers, commercial photographers, local commercial photographers, salt lake commercial photographers, utah commercial photographers

Marketing Materials for Hanz: Utah Commercial Photography

utah commercial photographers, utah outdoor photographers, salt lake outdoor photographers, slc outdoor photography, travel outdoor photographers, outdoor photography, professional photos, outdoor portrait, adventure photography, nature photos, product photography, tent photography, outdoor product photography, compercial photography, photography salt lake city,

Over the last year I have been doing a lot of work for Hanz. Traveling from Alaska to Lake Powell to photograph, I have had the opportunity to photograph their products in a lot of places and in a lot of different settings. If you haven’t checked out their products yet, I would recommend it. Totally waterproof gloves and socks. The added bonus is that the gloves are not only touchscreen, but they are touchscreen gloves that actually work.

 

I’ve been a part of a revamp they have done on their website as well in marketing materials. The first image is from their website. The remaining images are from marketing materials I picked up at Outdoor Retailer last month. I will be a bit sad to see OR move to Colorado next year. It has been a really great experience to talk to many different companies. Over the last couple years I have been able to meet with people I have only e-mailed with and see them on a bi-annual basis. Looks like I will have to go to Colorado twice a year now for the show!

Utah Documentary Photography: Population 800 on The American Guide

During the Great Depression, the US government created handfuls of programs to help keep people employed. From these programs, railways were built, public lands maintained, and a major project was undertaken called “Federal Project Number One”. This project consisted of five categories: art, music, theatre, writing, and a historical records survey. The most famous of the Federal Writers’ Project was a series created called “The American Guide Series”. Each state created guidebooks on their home, employing over 6,000 writers and photographers. The books had history and cultural aspects, as well as common touristic automobile tours, important attractions, and photo essays.

 

There is a group creating their own modern version of The American Guide Series. It’s a website, undertaking a spin-off of the original Guide. Using documentary photography works from various photographers, they have created an on-line catalogue of places and events across America. It’s a fun way to digitally explore areas before you visit, or find places you’ve never heard of before. Oh, and why you’re at it, check out the write up they did on my small towns project in Utah, Population 800.

 

Population 800 is a personal project I have been working on for the last seven years. If you want to see more work from my project, you can find it on various other blog posts and galleries. A couple examples of where to see the work in the past and present:

Website Update: Food Photography

I’ve been setting goals the last few months to gradually update my website. Slowly and surely I have been revamping one gallery at a time, trying to update all my portfolios. This past month my goal was to update my food photography portfolio. I have spent a lot of time this year photographing food. I did a cookbook, shot on a farm, photographed the culinary side of a resort, and photographed for a handful of restaurants. I would love to expand this line of work a bit more and continue to shoot food. I love the culture around it, and the stories that can come out of food all the way from farm to table.

To check out my new portfolio, take a look at my website. While you’re there, check out some new projects I just put up as well. I always love feedback, so if there is anything you see that needs improvement, let me know!

Fishing in Alaska with Hanz: Commercial Photography

While in Alaska last winter, I got the opportunity to photograph for Hanz. They are a waterproof sock and glove company that I have been doing commercial photography for on a few shoots now. This shoot took place in Juneau, Alaska. It was great to be able to go out on location and use their products in a new setting to me, both in terms of location as well as in terms of concept.

 

I really love the idea of hunting and fishing photography. Not necessarily because of an interest in those things, but more so in terms of an interest in the story behind those sports. I love the story telling possibilities associated with the sport. We were off season for this shoot, so actually catching something wasn’t an option. However, I had a great little shoot and got to experience a beautiful river on Douglas Island near Juneau. Perhaps next time I will actually get to be out on a proper fish or hunt.

 

I went to Alaska primarily for a documentary project for Allied Feather & Down. It was really great to be able to shoot for a few clients and double up on this trip. It not only made the trip more affordable for a few companies, but also gave me an excuse to be in Alaska for a long time. I ended up spending 11 days in Alaska. A day scouting location, two days shooting, and then the rest in Hoonah. This is my second time to Alaska in three years. I think I am going to have to make a bi-yearly trip North. Next time: the Arctic Circle.

Massive thanks goes to Jason, the model who not only helped suggest this location, but had incredible stories of bears and Alaska life. Plus, anybody who can catch king crabs and put them in his sea kayak with him is solid in my book. To check out these gloves and get a pair of your own, check out their website.

Made of Steel: Travel documentary photography on Huck

documentary photography, photojournalism, russia, monogoradax, editorial photography

 

It’s been a while since I have been to Russia, and there are quite a few reasons why I have been pushing this project off.. but I have finally finished my travel documentary photography essay on Russia. This project, which I have named “Made of Steel” is a little photo series and essay that I put together from my time in Russia with Tree working on our project Kreesha. I will be publishing these images (as well as a handful more) on my website soon. In the meantime, please head over to Huck and check out the editorial photography story I put together for them.

 

Made of Steel is a story of single industry towns in rural Russia, left behind when the Soviet Union disbanded. “Monogorad”. These towns were made for one purpose, and when the USSR fell apart, handfuls of these towns survived by private businesses and people buying factories, but others were left without any economy or direction. This travel documentary photography story is of these towns. Of what happens to them and what they look like now.

Listed: 24 Travel Photographers to Watch in 2017

I was recently listed on The Remote Life as one of the top 24 travel photographers to watch in 2017. It was a really great write up featuring many talented photographers around the world working in the travel industry. The featured image of mine was from a photo series I did in Bosnia called “Mortar Shells and Cigarettes”. This series was a personal film photography project I did a few years ago. I recently updated my website with an easier to navigate gallery of these images with full captions. Click here to see the documentary photography project and well as an updated gallery from travel photography I have created all over the world.

Hoonah, Alaska: Documentary Photography for Allied Feather and Down

In December I was asked by Allied Feather and Down to do a documentary photography project for them. It was an amazing experience, allowing myself to create an editorial photography piece on any topic I wanted. All it had to be was isolated and cold. The final result was for their publication “Into the Cold”, a bi-annual publication that they have just begun. It was a great opportunity to hunker down in a small town and do the work I truly love. This project sparked a lot of thought for me and the work that I do. It allowed me to think about how to do more work like this. Between this project and the series of government changes that is dramatically changing the world around us, it has made me question the work I do and how to make it more meaningful. Eventually, these thoughts, plus the inspiration of many from the outdoor community at Outdoor Retailer lead to a whole content creation package I now offer clients so I can continue to create meaningful project like this. If you would like more information on how you can be involved in these more meaningful projects, please contact me for more information on the services I provide.

HOONAH
Here, Elders have tales as tall as the icebergs that used to haunt the fisherman out at sea. Ice flipping and turning without warning, the waters were a dangerous place to be 50 years ago. Full of salmon, halibut, octopus, seals, crabs, and sea otters, the waters were necessary for life, and so the men braved the icy seas. The icebergs have melted, but the winds have stayed just as fierce and unpredictable.
There used to be more snow. Tales wisp across the streets of mid-November weddings in which the bride had to walk through a snow tunnel to her own wedding. Tales of bounties of berries that you had to fight the bears to get to, now less plentiful since the snow has become less of an annual visitor. (Though the bears remain here in the densest population in the world.)
Chichagof Island sits along the Icy Strait, and Hoonah, right on the edge of the island. The Tlingit Native Americans have been here for an estimated 14,500 years. Kicked out of Glacier Bay the first time because the glacier Costine called to destroy her own tribe thousands of years ago, and then again more recently by the National Park service. The Tlingit have been between here and there, living off the land and sea as the waters remain just as vital for life as they ever have been. Resilient to the harsh conditions that has made Alaska the illusive badlands it has grown the reputation to be, those willing to stay and brave the storm are rewarded with an isolated paradise ripe for sustainable living.
The Elders are teaching the younger generations of all the things that can be consumed and has a purpose. The goal is to build a strong community to help keep tradition; coming together to stay isolated from commercial dependance. As a return for the knowledge, the youth harvest deer and gift it to the Elders to give them food for the upcoming winter months.
Hoonah is a special place. With the fog coming out of the hills, reminiscent of smoke from long ago, the harsh landscape has an accompanying story of resilience to the conditions. Totems have stories of rising out of creeks as protective forces over the people. The history is rich. The culture struggling to stay alive amongst modern progression. High schoolers learn the native Tlingit language, veterans who have gone off to war have come home to Hoonah and perform dances and ceremonies. The Elders say the children now speak the language better and sing louder than they do.
This small town has roads that end, forcing you onto a boat or plane to leave. Within this isolation, however, there is a greater community. A community that comprises of many other small villages in Southeast Alaska, working together to preserve culture, with a rich spoken database of where to hunt and what can be harvested. Programs are being developed to communicate with one another clearer and also to become completely sustainable by using strictly renewable resources. There is hope that with this, the appreciation for the land and the sea can continue, and the community can come together to continue to stay isolated just a bit longer.
