Nepal Sherpa Mountain Culture Photos

When we booked our first trip to Nepal, a friend said, “People like you never go to Nepal just once”. He was right, we’ve been three times in the last three years for four treks and one climbing expedition. As we do our work photographing flashy new outdoor gear, making trekking & climbing images, and telling the westerner’s story of travel in the Himalaya – day to day Nepalese life goes on all around. “No, …

North Korea Photography

The Pyongyang mausoleum

Less than a month ago, my great friend and writer, Tim Neville, got the green light on a story idea he had pitched to Ski Magazine about the new ski resort in North Korea.

The project was assigned and only a few days later, before we could talk ourselves out of going, we had visas. We flew …

Kosovo Backcountry Skiing & Travel Story

Every so often an assignment comes along where a story is presented but a much richer tale gets discovered. This month we were assigned a shoot in Kosovo for Skiing Magazine with our great friend and writer Tim Neville. We immediately understood that there was something more to the story than a ski destination. Tim has spent a good deal of time in the Balkan countries and promised, “Europe… 150 years ago”. This, combined with …

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 …
