We are always thrilled to work with our good friends at Patagonia. When they reached out needing a shoot with four products that required four different looks in two and a half days, we were happy to step up. It always takes a lot of effort from a lot of people to make these projects happen. Big thanks to our friends at TroutHunter Lodge in Island Park, Idaho, for the continued support.
Our team was delighted to contribute a few video clips to Patagonia’s new Wild Fish Need Wild Fish Activists campaign.
“To survive, wild fish need clean, undammed rivers, accessible spawning habitat and watersheds undiluted by inferior hatchery stocks. To thrive, wild fish need wild fish activists—a lot of them—to protect, advocate for and defend them. Wild fish activism comes in many different shapes—everything from crushing barbs, keeping fish wet to contributing time, money or talent or taking a leadership role in an advocacy group. It all counts, and it’s all valuable. Best yet, the reward is good times on the water, a supportive community and a future that includes our passion. As anglers and activists, we stand for the waters we stand in, and we will protect what we love. It’s not too late. It’s not too early. It’s every day.”
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!
