Nootka Island, BC for Tiny Atlas Quarterly Winter Solstice Issue

Check out the beautiful new issue of Tiny Atlas Quarterly-  amazing stories and imagery. I’m very excited to have my latest British Columbia adventure featured. Many thanks to Raph Bruhwiler for showing us such a good time, and Tatchu Lodge for the epic adventures and dreamy treehouse. Big props to all the people working hard to make Tiny Atlas Quarterly as amazing as it is, and all the people who supported the kickstarter campaign to make the printed issue happen.

Nootka Island, British Columbia for Tiny Atlas Quarterly- The journey up north to the far reaches of BC was everything I hoped for- bears, timber wolves, orcas, surf, salmon, crazy Canadians, nights spent reading in a cedar treehouse, bonfires on the beach, … I’m busy editing the images for a piece in the upcoming Tiny Atlas Quarterly- in the meantime, please consider contributing to the Kickstarter campaign to fund this gorgeous, unique indie magazine founded by photographer extraordinaire Emily Nathan: “Tiny Atlas Quarterly is the culmination of what happens when art directors, designers, photographers, writers, stylists, digital techs, photo assistants and other friends and contributors from the creative corps collaborate on visual projects of their own designing.” http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tinyatlas/tiny-atlas-quarterly. PS- many thanks to Photo District News for highlighting this image!

British Columbia- I’ll be in BC all week, shooting for Tiny Atlas Quarterly, surfing and hopefully catching some fish! We’ll be on a little island off the west coast of Vancouver Island- it is a super wild, remote place, so if you don’t hear from me, contact my agent directly as I’ll have limited web/phone access.

The Selkirk Wilderness, British Columbia. One of my favorite places.

Here is the latest cover + feature for Sunset magazine. I had the best time exploring British Columbia, Oregon and the Sierras for this shoot. Many thanks to Yvonne Stender and Jeffery Cross of Sunset for always being so great to work with, Lisa Moir for amazing styling, and Julie Roll/Look Model Agency for modeling (in a bikini the freezing cold)!

Check out this profile in PDN’s Pix magazine on my travels. Speaking of which, I’m in Puerto Rico for the week on a great assignment, I love it here!

happy winter!

Winter solstice is here, and I’m buried in deadlines, post-production, estimates and lining things up for shoots in January and February.  Somehow I imagined that I’d have wrapped things up for the year by now, and I’d spend my days taking my dog to the beach, making fig jam, organizing my office and updating my portfolio. I can’t wait to head to Colorado and then British Columbia in a few days to play in the snow, relax a bit and shoot some personal work. 2010 was fantastic- full of great assignments,  inspiring travels around the world and close to home, and collaborations with lots of  really talented, lovely people.  Over the last few years, the unpredictability of being a photographer and the stress that goes along with never knowing what is on the horizon has slowly transformed into a lifestyle that works really well for me and  makes me grateful to be a photographer.  I love telling stories- capturing a sense of place and the essence of a moment, and I am really fulfilled by the glimpses my camera affords me of people and places I would never know otherwise. Here’s to a great 2011!
