PATAGONIA FISH CATALOG SPRING 2016 Oregon Whitewater + Idaho Tenkara + Traditions
The new Patagonia Fish Catalog arrived in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t be more pleased to see a few familiar faces along with many friends. A big thank you to all those folks who allow me to follow them around with my camera and document small significant moments of your life.
The new Fly Fisherman Magazine 2016 Gear Guide is on the news stands! Lots of great new gear is hitting the shelves this year, along with some trusty staples. I’m pleased that a few of my images were a good fit for this year’s layout. They always bring back such great memories. I always feel very lucky to be able to spend time with those who are passionate about life. A big thanks goes out to all those anglers that allow me to tag along on their personal journeys, you know who you are.
Head down to your local shop and grab a copy, or better yet, get a yearly subscription and never miss an issue.

WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP Waldorf School in Bend & TroutHunter lodge Henry’s Fork, Idaho
My friend and amazing outdoor clothing designer, Kim Brannock, called me about a creative fundraiser she was doing for her daughter’s school and was in need of participants. With the help of Patagonia ambassador Mille Paini and TroutHunter lodge we put together a fun Fish and Photo workshop on the famed Henry’s Fork River, a “what it takes to get it done in the field” so to speak. Ryan and Dennis were the lucky bidding winners and they showed up from Oregon with camera and fishing rods ready to go. We had some great light but battled tough fishing conditions and as always we made the best of times. The last day the fellas were rewarded with some great fishing and big fish, a bonus! We touched on the basics of photography but more so the technical little tricks and tips to get the shot. We nailed some great imagery and iconic enough, a few images that day have been selected to see print. A big thanks Ryan and Dennis and to Rich and Mille at TroutHunter and all the guides and staff, it was a great fundraiser for a great cause.
HATCH OUTDOORS SUMMER AD Seen in The FlyFish Journal 2015
It’s not all blue skies and calm seas when on location. You can’t predict the weather, or the fish, ever. When you’re in the business of getting the shot regardless, well, this was one of those days when you make it happen. Flat light, blowing wind, choppy water are no match for great attitudes, good anglers and impressive guides.
This image here was shot at Turneffe Flats. Guide “Dubs” poling in nuking wind getting Mille Paini into position to make the cast. The stars aligned and we were able to nail the shots wee needed. Ironically, many images from this day made it to commercial Ad or editorial prints. A great team effort!
IMAGES FOR HATCH OUTDOORS NEW 2015-2016 WEBSITE Published Commercial Website
The crew over at Hatch Outdoors has revamped their website. It’s full of new photos, new products and their top-notch standard of sleek machining and bomber-engineering that Hatch is known for. Their new site is LIVE! It’s great to see a handful of my images made the cut and relive those memories once again.
It’s a humbling experience to see your work in print. The studying, the tinkering, the leaning, the support and all the mistakes finally come together for one complex click of a button. I couldn’t be more pleased seeing my imagery of my friends Millie and Oggy in retail stores. The shop pictured here is Emerald Water Anglers in Washington. If you’re ever in the Seattle area be sure to swing in to this amazing one of a kind shop! Thanks for sending in the great pic Catie!
I’m very pleased to announce that Bryan Gregson Photography has partnered with Yeti Coolers to contribute to ongoing visual communications on social media and Internet platforms.

Give them a follow!
PATAGONIA | GIRL’S CLOTHING WEBSITE HEADER Millie and Ella tying flies in the magic bus. Henry’s Fork, Idaho
I’m thrilled to see this image once again show up. This image was captured in Island Park on the banks of the Henry’s Fork River inside a really cool bus named “Lucinda” owned by Branden Born. Ambassador Mille Paini and daughter Ella were tying flies. At times Ella would be very witty and full of energy, as usual. The present and future of the Yellowstone caldera is in good hands with these two ladies.
