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!
YETI COOLERS + FINDING FONTINALIS On location tomorrow, Western US
Perfect timing! The next few weeks are going to be fun, with multiple production shoots lined up these things are going to come in handy! First up, headed out the door in the morning to meet up with Bart Bonime of Patagonia to finish some work for the “Finding Fontinalis” film.
LOL ARGENTINA TRAVEL SERVICES Tourism Solutions, Buenos Aries
The back-story here is I was traveling to Argentina this past spring with a layover in Buenos Aries. As chance would have it, I picked up and assignment to photograph the BA SoHotel during my transfer days. (yesterdays post) This was a perfect excuse to stay in the big city for a few extra days to tackle some work and visit the tourist sites. I’ve always wanted to play tourist in BA but my schedules were always too tight to squeeze it in, but not this time. So I put a call into an essential piece of gear for traveling in and out of Buenos Aries, the transfer team! I called Gaia and her team at LOL Argentina and was able to find a slot for a tour. It was great to see and photography all the famous sites, cemeteries and graffiti. Well worth the history lesson!
I never go to Buenos Aries without the help of the LOL Argentina team…ever. LOL makes traveling in a city of millions of people, simple, seamless and smooth. Airport transfers, food, hotels, shopping, sites, tours, etc, you name it, the got it covered
The bulk of my photography consists of some sort of variation of an outdoors theme focusing on natures elements and adventure sport lifestyle. My job requires me to photograph many things, one of which is lesser known, architecture. Rustic log cabins, live aboard boats, lodges and hotels all have many lighting challenges. Often times there is a little more too it, which keeps me mentally engaged with studying and continually learning photography. The skills are applied to all aspects of my work and the knowledge fits nicely in the ol’ bag o tricks. It’s a fun, less glamours part of the job, that I enjoy and welcome. These projects requires a different approach and forces me to step outside of my comfort zone. Here is a recent sample of a few images I captured for a Hotel assignment in Buenos Aries, Argentina, shown here used for select customer marketing material.
If you’re passing through Argentina you’ll probably be staying in Buenos Aries. The great folks at BA SoHotel are top notch, great food and service.
These are just a few of the many species of jellyfish found in Belize. Yes, there are a few species that can pack a deadly punch and give this specie a bad name. But for the majority of them, they are gentle creatures and you can easily out swim one. I know the second image (black and white photo) is referred to as a “Moon Jelly” but I am not certain of the other.
