Portland Monthly | Road Trip cover

I dug deep into my archives to come up with this photo, it's an oldie and somehow it made it on the cover of Portland Monthly. On the cover is my old roommate at the time, Julie Schreiner. This was just a quick out and back trip to the hot springs in Eastern Oregon. It goes without saying but most of the time travel photos like this make it look way more luxurious and comfortable than it really is, Eastern Oregon is rough around the edges and there are little amenities to be found. Crappy sandwiches and gas, yup. You are pretty much on your own which is why I like it. 


Here's a little print love of Carson Storch in New Zealand. I enjoy the extended captions that Mens Journal does with their Notebook openers and this one gives nod to the late Kelly McGarry. Kelly always wanted to spin this drop and Carson paid homage to that by biking his mentors old stomping grounds. Kelly is still deeply missed all over the world especially in his hometown of Queenstown.
You can watch the tribute video titled, “Dear Kelly” it’s good and sad at the same time. Watch it (here). 

BIKE MAG | Colin Meagher

Imagine if you only had two to four years to live, what the hell would you do with the rest of your life? That’s a reality for photographer Colin Meagher who was diagnosed with ALS at age 51. 
I have known of Colin for a while and finally had a chance to meet and hang out with him and his wife Nikki for an article for Bike Mag. Spending the afternoon photographing Colin was actually inspiring and far from sad. We dorked out on camera stuff and he showed me his archives of slide film of mountain biking dating way back, lots of stories behind each photo. Being around other creative minds helps me get my brain going again and stoked out and that’s what Colin did for me in that short time we spent together. From what I’ve gathered Colin doesn’t want pity, he just wants to live a full life. 

Here's the article that came out in the April issue of Bike Mag

YETI COOLERS | Jackson Hole Ski Patrol

YETI Coolers put me on assignment with one of their in house filmers Ben Satterlee to follow around the Jackson Hole ski patrollers. If you have ever been to Jackson Hole then you know there probably shouldn't even be a ski resort on that mountain, it's gnarly terrain and you can find yourself in trouble real quick there. That's where the ski patrol come in to mitigate some of the dangers. It was insightful to sit in on daily operations and what they do on a day to day basis. The video does a great job covering what these goats do.

Pleasure Snowboard Magazine

Jeremy Jones and Forrest Shearer on Mount Shasta.
This photo that landed in the recent issue of Pleasure Mag out of Germany of Jeremy Jones and Forrest Shearer on Shasta has a backstory. Forrest and I camped on the next ridge over the night prior and woke up at the butt crack of dawn to meet up with Jeremy who was camping and waiting out the storm for a few days. He sat through snow, rain and a crazy thunderstorm. Forrest and I dropped in on that far right ridge directly as the sun was coming up and it was a ice skating ring, pure ice. I honestly should have had my ice ax out because it was that bad. The sound of our boards scraping from a quarter mile away woke Jeremy up. He popped his head out of his tent and that was the first time I met Dr. Jones. He's a badass on all levels and I'm looking forward and scared for the next adventure with Jeremy. 

Carson Storch | New Zealand Odyssey

Here's a little view of last year with Carson Storch and myself down in New Zealand filmed by local filmer Scott Robb. I thought this footage disappeared into the ether but here it is.

Dirksen Derby 11 Poster

Josh Dirksen event called the Dirksen Derby is an annual snowboard event hosted by Josh Dirksen on Mount Bachelor.
Josh Dirksen asked me if I could shoot the Dirksen Derby 11 poster for this years snowboard event that he holds up on Mount Bachelor. Usually, Adam Haynes AKA Stickfort does the posters for the Derby and they are always awesome. Adam was included in this one where his work was handprinted in the center of the board. This is what we came up with in Josh's garage, we weren't planning on using his garage as a backdrop but it just seemed to work. 

Specialized Bicycles | ANGI Helmet

Specialized BicyclesMetis Creative and myself teamed up for their new helmet technology called ANGi. I was getting still images for their website and social while the Metis took priority filming. I have to hand it to the Metis crew they busted this edit out in less than a week, filming and editing. The fast paced lineup usually is not good for creativity, it actually crushes it because it adds stress but this edit came out well. A lot happened on this shoot including blocking off traffic in downtown Bend to film on the side streets, then we accidentally ran over the marketing person/ road cyclist in the RZR (she was fine but her bike died). There was also a rabbit talent but that unfortunately didn't make it into the final cut. 

YETI Coolers Winter Holiday

YETI Coolers has been rolling out some winter photos lately of some images that I shot for them last season. Seem like every time I get out and shoot YETI stuff in the cold it is in the negatives temps and we almost get hypothermia, especially the one from the flyfishing above. When you're that cold all you can do is laugh or die, one or the other. :)

Mark Carter sipping on something with meat in it most likely, yep it was cold here too.

Mountain Flyer | Cam McCaul

Issue 58 of Mountain Flyer Magazine is on the stands now with a photo of Cam McCaul and I shot in the desert on the cover. This magazine has gotten a lot better in the last year with the new photo editor taking the reigns and filling in on what was missing. Honestly, years ago I intentionally overlooked this magazine because visually, well it sucked. Now they are on the up and up and I feel like they are contending with the bigger publications in biking.

DAKINE | Carson Storch

This was a fast turnaround for Dakine but a fun one. Carson and me had about a day and a half to travel and shoot to make the print deadline for BIKE Mag. We spent most of our time on another jump that just didn't work out but luckily there was this little hip close by. I feel like Carson could jump a sack of potatoes and make it look stylish. Carson's doggo Bentley really pulled the ad together though.

Travel Oregon | North Umpqua Trail

All female biking trip along the North Umpqua Trail.
Recently, Travel Oregon put me on an assignment to bike the 79 mile stretch of the North Umpqua Trail with writer Eileen Garvin and her friends. We took four days to do the journey during the hottest part of summer (not recommended) but starting early helped with the riding. It really is an epic trail filled with awesome views and waterfalls. I don't recommend rubbernecking too much though because parts or the trail are deadly, especially along the "Dread and Terror" section where's there are lots of cliffs.

Cam McCaul free rides down a line while filming for a video part for Trek Cycles.
BORN Mountain Bike Magazine issue two is out coming from Switzerland. It's a high quality magazine and leaning towards coffee table status. This spread of Cam McCaul landed in their new issue.
The caption translates to this (give or take),
"Surfing has waves, skiing powder, mountain biking this. This is how Freeride Pro Cam McCaul sums it up on his Facebook profile. His waves are the bizarre ground shapes in Nevada, his powder the dusty-dry earth. Again and again he goes with the photographer Tyler Roemer on the search for new lines and photo spots.

CLIF BAR | Linsey Corbin, Rose Wetzel + more

CLIF Bar put me on a few assignments that slowly roll out over time mainly of athlete profiles.  Here are some of the images that are live on Clif's site currently. (above) Triathlete Linsey Corbin training around the mountains in Oregon. 

Picture here is professional obstacle course racer Rose Wetzel training in Colorado. Rose has been on Ninja Warrior and competes in Spartan races. 

Clif put me on a road trip where we shot their new bar the Whey Protein. They wanted to focus on "In-between Moments" rather than pure adventure. It was a good challenge for all of us. 

BIKE Mag | Comrades Issue

Bike Magazines newest issue is all about the bonds that biking creates. I believe that any sport creates bonds especially when it's not easy and you're struggling alongside your friends. I've looked over at my friends on hard miserable missions and all we can do is laugh at how hard it is. What else can you do? 

The above photo was shot this year in New Zealand during the annual McGazza Fest where the entire bike community of Queenstown and beyond come and celebrate Kelly McGarry's life. McGarry impacted a lot of lives during his short time on this world and continues to do so. You can read more about McGarry's Foundation (here). 

The last page is of Carson Storch on a roadside tourist attraction in New Zealand. It makes me laugh every time I see this photo.
