Best Photos of 2012

Come December of every year, the “Best of” lists start circulating and I get inspired to do one of our own. It allows us to reflect not only on our images, but our experiences. And it comes as no surprise that our favorites are often our best experiences – but our favorite images are not necessarily our best work. There is a difference. Great images produced during photoshoots are less rewarding than those stumbled upon …

Magazine Cover Clips

The first magazine I ever worked with as a photographer, Rock & Ice back in 1997, has finally featured one of our images on the cover of the January 2013 issue. Because of my long history with the sport of climbing, and this magazine, I am pretty thrilled.

Cycling Photography

Last year Janine made a statement that made me very, very happy, “Let’s make 2012 the year of the bike”. Here we are, summer 2012, and it has truly become just that. Typically our summer is full of hiking, climbing and trail running trips. While we have all that on the schedule, the big projects involve pedaling. The Swiss CrissCross, which I just wrote about here, is the biggest trip on our books this summer. Maybe …
