I couldn’t be more pleased to see my image of Argentina guide, Marcela Appelhanz, being used to promote Patagonia Fly Fishing’s new “The Guide Line” program. It’s a new program that connects anglers with experts via video chat to find the right product based on specific fishing situations. Give it a try!
A big thank you to all those folks who allow me to follow them around with my camera and document small significant moments of their life.
SALMON: A FISH, THE EARTH AND THE HISTORY OF THEIR COMMON FATE Mark Kurlansky, bestselling author of Salt and Cod and many other works
The new Patagonia book, Salmon, arrived in the mail yesterday. I am very pleased to have an image in this outstanding, and very well researched book.
“Salmon: A Fish, the Earth and the History of Their Common Fate (hardcover book published by Patagonia) is Kurlansky’s most important piece of environmental writing in his long and award-winning career. Research shows that all over the world these fish are a natural barometer for the health of the planet. With stunning historical and contemporary photographs and illustrations throughout, Kurlansky’s insightful conclusion is that the only way to save salmon is to save the planet and, at the same time, the only way to save the planet is to save the mighty, heroic salmon.”
The new Patagonia Fly Fishing catalog arrived in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t be more pleased to see a few familiar faces along with many friends. 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.
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.
Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures has released their new 2019 Travel Catalog. Once again the catalog is packed with global adventures, reputable destinations, and articles. For the first time ever YDFA has also released a second catalog. This a Patagonia region specific catalog covering the ins and out of both Chile and Argentina.
It’s always fun to flip through these and remember all the amazing people and unforgettable moments that were shared while on location shooting. There is a lot of hard work and sleepless buggy nights that went into creating this content and it was worth every shutter click, even the hotter than sin sleepless buggy nights.

This past fall I headed over to my buddy Eric Paulson’s house to capture some images of him bucking hay bales. Every year Eric has to make hay while the sun shines to get ready for winter so I figured it was a great time to photograph some real authentic moments. Between guiding and skiing, the swing months are packed with chores. Eric is no stranger to hard work, it’s just another day in paradise for him. Little did I know his hard work was going to pay off in more ways than one. It’s great to see this moment made it into the Fall 2018 Patagonia Workwear catalog.
At one time in my career, I was in front of the lens, pictured on a few covers, a couple of commercial ads, and in editorial publications. That seems so long ago. These days, I am mostly behind the lens, documenting anglers and their lifestyles and journeys. I am usually pretty good at avoiding the other end of the camera, but every now and again I get photographed. So you might say I was very surprised to see the new Patagonia Fish Ad for the newTough Puffwas of a photo of me!
This image was shot byPatagonia Ambassador Eric Paulson while we were on assignment for a shoot. I didn’t know he was quietly sniping photos while I was trying to navigate what seemed to be miles of log jams. It was already a fun trip so this image is icing on the cake. Nice shooting, Eric!

new Tough Puff from Patagonia you won’t be disappointed.

PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA New Media for Las Pampas Lodge
Our team headed to Las Pampas Lodge this past spring for our annual Argentina trip. Las Pampas Lodge is located in a charming old traditional town surrounded by towering peaks and small, remote waters with great hatches and willing fish. Tucked away in the heart of the Patagonia, this small town certainly has a big fishing problem.
Many thanks to the lodge team for their time and energy. We truly enjoyed filming this winter with the LPL crew and look forward to our annual return in 2018.

“An old gaucho’s tale inspired the search for a new world-record brook trout; but the water, landscape and the culture surrounding it became the impetus to conserve and protect it all. Finding Fontinalis features magnificent hook jawed brook trout and incredible jaw dropping landscapes. Finding Fontinalis is the new film from Patagonia and acclaimed fly fishing filmmaker Travis Lowe, starring Agustin Fox and Bart Bonime with Bryan Gregson and featuring iconic environmentalist Yvon Chouinard. “
