Best Photos of 2014

Best Photos of 2014

As a photographer, it’s always interesting to take a look back and see what photos worked and what didn’t. One way to measure photographic success is by making an “Interestingness” Flickr Album. According to Flickr’s super-secret “Interestingness” algorithm, the photos in my Most Interesting Photos Of 2014 gallery are, well – interesting. I don’t know […]

Alta Powder Day Video – Sony 4k Action Cam

Alta Powder Day Video – Sony 4k Action Cam

This Tuesday, March 3, 2015, was one of the best powder days I can remember. I was up before dawn and headed up the canyon to Alta with my DSLR and the new Sony 4k Action Cam. It was storm skiing all day long in Little Cottonwood Canyon and there was a lot of powder […]

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

Red Bull Rampage is the most prestigious and challenging freeride mountain bike competition on the planet. It takes place in the fall, near the tiny Southern Utah town of Virgin, just a few miles from Zion National Park. It’s so “extreme” it borders on the absurd. The red desert backdrop looks like something from a […]

2015 POV Camera Shootout

2015 POV Camera Shootout

I know a lot of my friends and followers indulge in risky outdoor behavior. Regardless of what kind of outdoor activities you enjoy, many of you probably like to document your adventures with video. One of the most popular ways to do this is with a POV camera (“POV,” stands for “point-of-view”). POV cameras are […]

Reflecting On Little Creek Mesa

Reflecting On Little Creek Mesa

Reflecting on Little Creek Mesa: I was blessed to be able to experience this sunset and capture this photo a couple of weeks ago out on Little Creek Mesa, near St. George, Utah. I intended to sit on it, shop it out to magazines and see if I could make some money. But I suck […]

Colorado Enduro World Series Photos

Colorado Enduro World Series Photos

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph the Enduro World Series (EWS) in Winter Park, Colorado. If you aren’t a mountain biker or you’ve been living in a cave, enduro is the latest mountain bike craze: competitors race multiple timed stages, with a downhill emphasis, usually over two or three days. Sometimes […]

Big Sur Road Trip Adventure

Big Sur Road Trip Adventure

This Big Sur photo gallery was prompted by the now ubiquitous “throwback Thursday” social media post. This morning, I decided to share a photo from a road trip Jenni and I did this time last year, where we drove down the coast of California, from the Bay Area to LA. The highlight of that drive […]

Spring 2014 Mountain Bike Video Reel

Spring 2014 Mountain Bike Video Reel

My fans and followers know me primarily as a photographer, writer and bacon lover. But I’ve also been dabbling in video for the past few years. It’s mostly been in the form of camera intros and reviews, as well as to test the video features and performance of cameras I’ve reviewed. But I’ve also shot […]

2014 Brighton Closing Day Photos

2014 Brighton Closing Day Photos

I’ve attended a few ski resort closing days in the past and they’re always tons of fun. Skiing slush in a T-shirt is cool (as long as you’ve got the right wax on your skis), the silly costumes and vintage ski gear are entertaining, but mostly it’s the party atmosphere and camaraderie with fellow snow […]
