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!

A SERIES OF BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS

A SERIES OF BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS
A few Black and White moments from my life on the road

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
― Ted Grant

Gaucho_Argentina_20130309-5554380038

+Las Pampas, Argentina Argentine Gaucho, Jonathan Nunis, observes the outcome of his trusty calving rope work. Jonathan is one of the few old World gauchos, the last of his kind. It’s very much a fragile way of life in the new realm of technology, power and greed. I’ve never felt so humbled, so welcomed, so very small and insignificant in the big small world. It’s my hope their way of life continues forever.

Yvon-Chouinard_BGP_8603-2

+Remote backcountry, Argentina Yvon Chouinard studying maps of the expedition in his tent. Andes Mountains, Argentina. This image represents my childhood dream and my childhood hero. A good role model and hero can make a difference, especially for the youngsters. It could be anyone really, a parent, a friend, someone who over came the odds, maybe a neighbor, perhaps a coach, an explorer, probably someone with a backbone that created positive change, it could be anyone with integrity, guts and bravery. These types follow their own quest, which is more often than not, the hard road. They fail but get back up and keep on going with their integrity and spine in tact, and they instill the seed of chance in others. Decades later I was the middle of the Andes Mountains gearing up for a big adventure. Ironically my childhood hero was also on the expedition team. I feel very fortunate to have captured this moment, for me it’s an internal lifetime accomplishment. It was also an inspiring moment, solidifying with certainty; the only limitations are those we put on ourselves. You can do anything you want to, you just have to actually want to do it. The champ is still going hard, still following his dreams, and still forging his own path. And its not everyday you get to bring your childhood hero on an expedition and take his picture when he’s not looking. Thirty-years later, I’m inspired once again.

Local, seasonal, Yucatan angler flying to breakfast with the catch of the morning in its talons, snapper was on today’s menu. I feel lucky to have been able to witness this event as well as photograph two of them fishing in the ocean surf in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. It was an impressive, humbling, sight to say the least.
