2020 CATALOG | THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS

BRANDON PRINCE + CAMILLE EGDORF
Rocky Mountains 

We were commissioned by Thomas & Thomas Fly Rod Company to create a few portraits fly fishing for marketing advertisements. The idea of the image was to showcase a Western fly fishing theme.

I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Brandon Prince and his daughter this past summer. Brandon is a Western Rocky Mountain Thomas & Thomas rep. He is also a long-time close friend, we’ve known each other for over two decades. Fun fact, at one time Brandon and I were roommates on the famous Henry’s Fork River in Idaho. I remember when his daughter was born and how excited he was to have a new fishing buddy. It was really special to see them fishing together years later. She is just as into is as her father is. I guess the old saying of “like father, like daughter” is fitting. I am looking forward to seeing what the future has planned for this amazing father and daughter duo.

We couldn’t be more pleased to see a few images from Kamchatka grace the pages of Fortune magazine. This was a great trip with great folks — Tom Melvin and James Carroll.

SIMMS FISHING: FALL 2019

SIMMS FISHING: FALL 2019
Commercial Product Catalog and Advertising Photography

Simms Fishing Products has been manufacturing waders, boots and gear in the heart of Bozeman Montana for over 25-years. Our team had the opportunity to work on marketing materials this past year. A few resident anglers combined with our local rivers and mountain valley’s proved to be a fitting backdrop for this homegrown company. Although our team loves traveling globally for work, it was nice to work at home locally.

It takes a lot of motivated individuals to tackle a substantial shot list in a short amount of time. A big thank you to the production crews and our fantastic talent, we couldn’t have accomplished this without your efforts.

WAYPOINTS WITH JIM KLUG: PODCAST

WAYPOINTS WITH JIM KLUG: PODCAST
episode #4

I had the opportunity to sit down with Jim Klug in Bozeman, Montana to record an episode of his new podcast, Waypoints – The Podcast of Adventure Angling.

Jim’s new podcast was created for those that fish and for those that travel to fish. Dive into the what, why, where and how of destination angling, discussing relevant topics and breaking down the issues that matter to those who travel and fish.

It was undoubtedly humbling to be asked to sit down and talk fishing, life, and photography. Take a listen – I hope you enjoy it.

As a photographer, there is just something personally gratifying about holding an image on paper. This photo in the White River Fly Shop catalog brings back so many great memories of the adventure, comradery, and experience.

The first time I saw this area I was elated to see this how crystal clear this Argentine spring creek was. Then I saw the colors of the fish who call this water home. I still remember how excited I felt, I couldn’t wait to get my camera underwater. Luckily a few fish were caught, a few images were captured, a few lifelong memories were forged.

PATAGONIA DANNER BOOT

PATAGONIA DANNER BOOT 2019
Washington State

Earlier this year Patagonia Ambassador Eric Paulson and I were commissioned to take the new Patagonia boots from Danner into the field. I always like shooting with Eric, it’s hard work, fast-paced, everyone knows their role and its never ever a dull moment. From knocking out teeth to torrential downpours, we seem to never time the weather right but we always return with new fishing stories of adventure and a few new images.

SAGE FLY FISHING: 2019 TROUT SEASON CAMPAIGN

SAGE FLY FISH: TROUT SEASON, 2019
Commercial Ad Campaign, Photography


We were excited when we received the call from our good friends over at Sage Fly Fishing to be part of their 2019 Trout Season campaign. The campaign consisted of a few parts and we were happy to be a small part of the big picture. The images are to accompany beautifully written words from writer Chris Dombrowski and a film from R.C. Cone/Tributary Digital Cinema. The theme was the Henry’s Fork — the surrounding people and places within the Yellowstone caldera and overall Western fly fishing. It was an honor to be part of this project.

Tucked back in the nook of the Yellowstone Caldera is what I call a beautiful slice of heaven. Over the years I’ve grown to deeply love this small little place with a mighty river. Although my camera often times takes me to far off places to document amazing fisheries, I always think of the Henry’s Fork and the friends who call it home. Thanks to all those that let me tag along on your adventures over the years and for letting me stick a camera in your face.
