NON PROFIT WORK | HEBER VALLEY FLY FISHING FESTIVAL
The Heber Valley Fly Fishing Festival is a free public fly fishing festival held on the second weekend in August each year. Their goal is to build a community by supporting local non-profit organizations with our fundraising efforts & to introduce kids to the love of fly fishing while raising awareness of the amazing blue ribbon fisheries in Utah’s Heber Valley.
I am happy to support this great festival in Heber, Utah. Our studio donated prints for marketing and fundraising and we are happy to see one being used as a poster. I can’t donate to all the non-profits out there, but this is such a great cause and dear to my personal home water hearts so I jumped at the opportunity to help in anyway I could — and I encourage you to do the same.
Put the date on your calendar and join in the festivities August 12th-13th at Hamlet Park in Midway (next to Johnson Mill & Legacy Bridge) for fun, fishing, live music and great BBQ.
TROUT UNLIMITED CALENDAR 2015 Month of January Image
The new 2015 Trout Unlimited Calendar is out. I’m very happy to see my image for the month of January. What a great way to start out the New Year!
I am member of Trout Unlimited. TU’s conservation and restoration work in and around my home waters is vital for the survival of an ecosystem and native species such as the Cutthroat Trout. For that I am very thankful.
About the image
This image is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with what some would call a “mediocre” camera, I say its just less expensive. I captured this image of my buddy, Scott Dickey, on freezing morning on the Middle Section of the renowned Provo River, with a *gasp* less expensive camera. I cost a few hundred bucks is all, which is awfully cheap in the camera World. I didn’t have all the latest and greatest in camera equipment: no high-end DSLR, no prime ‘L” glass, no fancy filters, over priced tripod sticks or expensive ball-heads. I just had a camera, superb scenery and crazy friends willing to dawn patrol in sub-zero temps for a few images. Does high-end gear make it easier for me to get my day-to-day job done, of course it does. But you don’t need all of that to create and capture a great image.
