WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP FUNDRAISER

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.

THE SISTINE CHAPEL | EDITORIAL

THE SISTINE CHAPEL | EDITORIAL
The Complete Fly fisherman Magazine

I had the opportunity to join some friends for a day of fishing. It was a great crew and a really fun day showing new friends the local water. Watching their reactions to the surroundings, the river and the fish were inspiring. Often times what we see everyday we take for granted. I was thrilled to see how excited my own backyard was to them. And in turn, it was also exciting for me to be able to share my own backyard experience with them. Gerhard Laubscher wrote an article on his trip to the ‘Ranch & fishing and it was published in the December edition of “The Complete Fly fisherman” magazine. I was happy to be able to supply him with a few images. Take a look; it’s a great read.

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.

Also included is a photo essay on the Henry’s Fork Salmonfly hatch. I was fortunate to be able to get on the water with some top guides, who just so happen to be my friends.

MILKY WAY | YELLOWSTONE CALDERA

THE MILKY WAY OVER THE HENRYS’S FORK RIVER | IDAHO
Starscape

I spent a great, and freezing cold, night taking images of the night sky over the river.
When your gazing at the stars for hours upon hours, you can’t help but to wonder about many things, but I certainly know with out a doubt, the universe is undeniably mind-blowing.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”
― Carl Sagan

OZZIE THE BOX CANYON OSPREY
Idaho Osprey Rescue

A portrait of “Ozzie” before he was taken to the Teton Raptor Center for wing and shoulder rehabilitation. I think this shows his personality well: a brave courageous bird with a will to live.
I’m happy he is flying once again back home in the Box Canyon of the Henry’s Fork River, Yellowstone country.

BUG EATING FRANKLIN’S GULL

BIRDS OF THE HENRY’S FORK RIVER | IDAHO
Franklin’s Gull, Idaho

I was in the field creating fly fishing images during a prolific hatch. The fish and the birds were feeding heavily on the new emergence of mayflies. I had a great time photographing these masked birds. It gave me a new found appreciation for how agile and quick these birds are. Their eye sight in unbelievable, being able to fly at high speed while picking off tiny insects has to take some serious skills. It was a great day in the Yellowstone Caldera office.
