Creating concepts doesn’t just apply to portrait photography - it’s equally as important with landscapes. This was a shot I had wanted to get for two years and drove 16 hours to get to location. Between waiting for the right season and weather I had spent a ton of time thinking about what I wanted, aka what I needed to look for so instead of losing my cool during these few brief moments of perfect light and trying to shoot EVERYTHING, I focused on THE shot I was after and came away with one of the few images I wouldn’t change a thing about.

A lot of you who follow me are good photographers, but I get questions every single day from people asking how they get to the next level. Is it gear? Location? How do you find people to shoot with? This workshop is the MOST valuable thing I could make to give to any of you serious enough about actually becoming a better photographer, no matter where you might live, no matter how little gear or connections you have. Also I shot this on a $500 setup that’s over 10 years old. Link in bio

Your gear doesn’t matter. I shot this image with a $500 camera + lens setup. I had to prioritize certain settings to come out with a commercial quality image, but more importantly, I had help from the team I’d assembled to make this photo happen. Deep dive into this all + more in the workshop - sign up at a discounted rate now! Link in bio.

One thing that was hugely important for me was to teach how to work with models (your friends, strangers, pro, etc ) - as photographers it’s our job to make sure the model is comfortable, safe, and enjoying the experience. 1: as good humans we should be doing this with everyone, but 2: if you’re not making your subjects totally comfortable and sold on the project it’s going to show in the photos.

I wanted to show you all a little of what to expect from this workshop. How can I actually help YOU? We are going to learn how to overcome every obstacle we THINK we have. I’m going to show you how to use the cheapest gear around to make commercial quality images, how to shoot what you want - even if you can’t travel to amazing places, and how to create images that actually feel real because they are, using the people you already might know, not professional models. Would love to hear your feedback. More info at the link in my bio 🤘

Pre sunrise halfway up the mountain. An outtake from my workshop Creating The Moment where we’ll learn to make world class images no matter what limitations we have: location, access to folks to shoot with, gear, etc. we all have limitations, but there are always ways to work around.

Waking up this morning. Yesterday I took the 5D II and one lens and headed way down the lake to fish with @hunterdayphoto Felt like proper summer. Now I’m back in the “office” doing computer work today, so thankful for @discovercrown to have such cool home bases up here near Glacier National Park. I can be out doing the fun stuff without ignoring my work. I’m taking over their account this week so go check out some more fun stuff there.

I’ve stayed on Flathead lake before (and it was wonderful ), but being at the @whistlestopretreat has blown every other place away - this is my definite favorite place to be. Waking up to a back porch on the water and having a yard like this has made for one of the coolest weeks of life. Now I just need Claire to come back with me. Thanks to @discovercrown and @whistlestopretreat , we’ll be back soon!

I’m teaming up with my good friend @alexstrohl on a workshop this summer, and here’s why it might be for you: There was a time in my photography where I felt like I had hit a wall. My images were good, but I didn’t feel like anyone was going to remember them and think about them after scrolling past. In 2017 I got burnt out creatively, and started to think about what I could shoot if I could shoot anything. This was a breakthrough that lead to a lot of growth in my art and career. In this workshop we’re talking about creating your own world, capturing THE moment, not settling for good enough, when to shoot film and when not to, and more. This is for all of you that have gotten good, and are stuck trying to level up. I hope you’ll join me on this journey by signing up for more info at the link in my bio. I promise there will be no spam, and I’m even giving you 4 free unreleased Lightroom presets upon signup. Thanks all 🤘
