CATALOG COVER | DECEMBER 2018 Pink Salmon tail, Alaska
It’s always a special day to open the mailbox and see your image on the cover of a manufacturing catalog. This image is from a great trip to Alaska with a good fishing buddy, Tom Melvin. The moment I saw the light and the tail I knew I had something to work with. Pink Salmon are such amazing fish, I can’t wait to get back to photograph them again.
For all the latest and greatest in fly fishing check out the Orvis website and sign up for their catalog!
I’m delighted to see the new Cover and Exposure Section of the current issue of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine. It’s always a humbling honor to be accepted for a cover and photo essay piece.

Big thanks to anglers: Rick Matney, Tom Melvin, Camille Egdorf, Austin Trayser, James Warren
PATAGONIA FISH | Fall workbook 2017 Argentina & Alaska
The new Patagonia Fish workbook for the Fall 2017 line-up is hot off the press and in the hands of dealer and reps. I was blown away to see my good friend Augustine Fox on the cover. I think it captures nicely the very essence of Agustin (Oggy) Fox, Argentina and the Patagonia brand. it was a memorable day! Another surprise was seeing this image of Yvon make it to print, ironically this was a day we all spent with our good pal Oggy.
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 Fly Fisherman Magazine 2017 Gear Guide has recently hit the newsstands! I’m happy to see that an image from our Alaskan shoot last year made the cover. This image of angler Camille Egdorf was taken in while on location shooting for Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. We were searching for the elusive Sea Run Rainbow Trout with Rick Matney when she hooked into this gem. It was a great trip with great friends. I hope to one day see to the temperate rainforest of the great white north again, it really is the last of the salmon (and steelhead) forests.
Head down to your local shop and grab a copy, or better yet, get a yearly subscription and never miss an issue.
I am very pleased to see this image on the cover of the 2016 issue of the Steelheaders Journal. It’s always nice to see your hard work in print and its even nice’r to see your work on the cover. I couldn’t be more happy. This image is of Rick Mantey releasing a chrome steelhead back into the native waters of Alaska.

I was certainly happy to get the call to head to Southeast Alaska this past spring. This remote temperate rainforest is a place of adventure, wonder and some of the best wild steelhead fishing around. The weather, the climate, the tides, the terrain and just trying to get there also makes it one of the most vigorous angling exploits imaginable, the temperate rainforest is not for the faint of heart. However, besides the constant uphill battle, this is also one of the most thrilling adventures a fly angler can have! It was a fun week of crab, prawns, and steelhead. I can’t wait to return.

AURORA BOREALIS | 16 SECOND TIME-LAPSE Wrangell, Alaska
I’ve accumulated dozens of time-lapse shorts over the years. I’ll be slowly trickling these out from time to time. This was shot during an assignment in Alaska in 2014. The night before our departure I randomly walked outside and by luck I spotted the starting of the Northern Lights. I scrambled for my gear and set-up a time-lapse. I got lucky, right place and the right time.
