Kirt Voreis Fox Breakaway shoot

December 14, 2010 I’ve been shooting with Kirt Voreis for quite a few years and we always seem to have fun and get great results, maybe that’s why he’s one of my favorite mtb athletes to shoot with. This past September I headed to Kirt’s hometown of Bend, Oregon to shoot an ad for Fox Racing. The ad features the new Fox all weather Breakaway Jacket, and my creative briefing simply said “It’s an all weather jacket, make it look wet and wintery”. That didn’t sound too difficult until I arrived in Bend and the weather was beautiful and sunny,…

2010 Portfolio Book

I’ve just released my 2010 Portfolio as a book on Blurb.com The book highlights select images from some of the shoots I did in 2010 including some gritty courier images from a shoot for Tiramizoo, Red Bull Crashed Ice and Air Race, Trek World Racing team camp, and lots of other mountain bike imagery. It’s 80 pages and you can preview some of the book below. If you’re interested in hiring me and would like to receive a high quality pdf of the portfolio please contact me. I’m not sure if it’s something that I’ll make much money selling, but…

Dirt Magazine Cover

I just got a copy of the October issue (#104) of Dirt Magazine with my photo of Tracy Moseley on the cover! This is only my 3rd Dirt cover, and the other 2 were back in the day, 2003 to be exact. Pretty excited about it, and also the fact that it’s a shot of Tracey Moseley from World Champs at Mt Saint Anne this year, an event that had more than a few top notch photographers in attendance. To finish an event like World Champs with a photo on the cover of the worlds biggest mtb race magazine is…

Jill Kintner Autograph Cards

A short while ago my friend Jill Kintner contacted me about using a photo for her autograph cards. I always try to help the athletes that I work with so I gave her permission to use this one, what do you think? I like it… a little back story Jill and I have had an interesting working relationship this year, she described it as awkward, and the majority of the photos I shot of her this year look a little bit awkward. Perhaps because we didn’t ever actually shoot together, I was simply shooting at races and getting her as…

NW Cup and Pro GRT in Port Angeles

Last weekend I was in Port Angeles, Washington for the Northwest Cup and the first of the Pro GRT Downhill races. With the volcano in Iceland spewing ash into the air above Europe a lot of flights had been cancelled and many of the DH athletes that had been in California for the Sea Otter Classic decided to head to PA while waiting for a flight back to Europe to continue the World Cup circuit. I was shooting for the Trek World Racing team who had planned to attend all along, but the added competition definitely made the event more…

Trek World Racing Team Camp

I just returned from shooting the Trek World Racing Team (TWR) in Phoenix, and while I can’t show you any photos at the moment, I can tell you a bit about the shoot. The shoot was for a few different purposes, and I was happy to have Trek’s Art Director, Paul Rogers on hand to keep everything going in the direction he needed. We shot images of all the XC and DH riders on the team that will end up being used for everything from ads to postcards and catalog. The postcards are for Sea Otter and they needed to…

Punta San Carlos story in MBUK

Back in November of 2009 I went on a little trip to Punta San Carlos in Baja Mexico. It’s a wonderful place and my friend Kevin Trejo runs a nice little camp there on the beach. You can check out his website here.  I’ll probably be offering a few photography clinics there in the next year, I know you’ll love it! MBUK Magazine in the UK (yes that’s the UK part) just ran a story I wrote with some photos from our trip, here are some quick shots of it. I’ll post a few more of the photos in the…
