The Canary Islands - Part Two

 

My decade-long friend and Maine-based photographer Greta Rybus and I collaborated on a handful of stories in the Canary Islands, located off the western coast of Morocco. We're still preparing some stories for publication, but I couldn't wait to share some outtakes from our trip! Part two.

The Collective Quarterly Workshop - Montana

There's a freedom of spirit that runs wild in Montana...and in the Paradise Valley south of Bozeman, that freedom is palpable.  The valley runs long and narrow, lined by sweeping mountains and capped by the Big Sky, one that seems to go on forever.  Recently I was one of 45 selected photographers to attend a photography workshop put on by The Collective Quarterly, a beautiful and inspiring magazine about discovery; it was fitting we met in Montana. Top industry professionals from Time Magazine, Patagonia, and more, shared their insight, knowledge and experience in the industry during our week together. They reviewed all 45 of our portfolios, one-on-one, providing guidance and inspiration for us on our creative paths. It was a truly magical week, one that left me with some serious nostalgia for Montana, and with new ways of seeing. So grateful for all the amazing beings I met there and whom inspired me on this journey.

'Intertwined' with Julia Vandenoever

As part of Boulder Arts Week, Julia Vandenoever and I collaborated for the third year in a row to create a new body of work together. Fully conceptualized, shot, edited, printed, framed and hung together, we were happy to show 'Intertwined' at Wonder, a fresh-pressed juice bar in Boulder, Colorado through the month of May. Inspired by our love of food, nature, and simplicity, we explored the interconnectedness of life through color, form, and light. 

Some images from the show:

Olomouc, Czech Republic!

Dobrý den from the Czech Republic!  I'm currently in the beautiful, historic city of Prague where I am leading a National Geographic Student Expeditions Photo Workshop for two weeks.  Tomorrow, the students arrive from all over the US for the intensely packed trip, complete with an excursion to Southern Bohemia.  National Geographic photographer Mattieu Paley is with us for the two weeks as the Nat Geo Expert who will work closely with the students as we are out and about shooting.

I came over a bit early to explore the much smaller, non-touristy city of Olomouc (pronounced Olomoats)...about two hours from the Polish border.  It was a cute, quaint little town with windy, cobblestone streets and friendly faces around every corner.  Hope you'll enjoy just a small handful of images from there!  More to come...
