Pixies and Scamps: Last Kiss of Color

with one comment

Melissa (my partner in Pixies and Scamps) and I had a truly amazing afternoon with Madison, Melanie and Nate up Millcreek Canyon a few weeks ago. We caught the last of the beautiful fall colors and had an equally beautiful and fun family to work with. I think Madison is ready for the big time!  The Melissa/Nick combo is turning out to be a creative, productive and fluid team; just let us know when you would like your family documented by Pixies and Scamps!

Photopainting and Photography: The Interview

with one comment

I had the honor of being interviewed by Paige from her ever popular equine blog: The Equinest.  The Equinest runs  a regular artist interview and portfolio sampling, from some the best equine artists in the country. I had fun answering her questions, sharing some work and insights, and just being in the company of some great artists! Thanks again Paige! Here’s an excert and you can view the entire interview here.

“Who are your main influences?
My early influences were the great documentary photographers…Eugene Smith, Dorothea Lange, Robert Frank, Eugene Richards. Others include Joel Meyerowitz, Joyce Tenneson, Richard Avedon, Gordon Parks, Sally Mann, Man Ray. I am a huge fan of Keith Carter. Gordon Parks is probably the greatest renaissance man of the 20th century. I really admire photographers such as Meyerowitz who’s work goes everywhere from street photography to fine art.

Your work encompasses more than just horses, what is your favorite subject?
Tough question. I really enjoy different types of work for different reasons. Photographing horses however is truly sublime. Being outside in nature with gorgeous, powerful, muscular, fascinating, photogenic animals is really hard to beat. My other favorite subject is my five-year-old son.”

Equine meets Wedded Bliss: Take 2

leave a comment »

I had the good fortune to photograph with Rachel again in advance of her upcoming wedding at the Sundance Resort. The hike to this mountain location was a pleasure in itself, and the actual shoot locale was gorgeous. I love discovering new locations right in my own backyard and viewing two rather large moose from a safe distance was an added bonus. As usual Rachel was a great model and a trooper to boot. I love this set of pictures and these are just the tip of the iceberg!





Equine Photopainting: Georgia on My Mind

with one comment

Two pieces I have been working on for Marc and his wife who reside outside Atlanta, GA. Though we’ve never met, Marc and I, believe we may be kindred spirits…or at least share a very similar sense of humor. These guys provided me images of their beautiful horses in a fairy-tale type setting. It was a pleasure to work on these, and with their feedback, make two pieces of art that they truly love.
