A few takes from a recent portrait/ lifestyle shoot with real estate guru and fellow Denver native, Ryan Dykstra. It was fun (and rare) connecting with a local who grew up in the same South Denver stomping grounds as myself.
A few images from a recent shoot with FJG Advertising in Downtown Denver.

Always a pleasure having pal and super talented artist @shantell_martin in town for a few days. We talked about art and commerce, broke bread and chugged weak tea. She even inspired me to take a few swings with a flashlight during a long exposure collaboration. Good times with good people. Be sure to check her channel out on youtube as well!
Painting with light is far more difficult than one may perceive. Even for the most innately gifted of artists it can prove to be a challenge.
I had the opportunity of working with @shantell_martin recently. So of course I had to ask to her to try her hand at experimenting with the technique. Without hesitation she was in.
Having never attempted this before, it wasn’t more than a couple frames before she had it figured out. Not to mention; we made it work at a not so ideal park in lower downtown and a nearby dark alley.
Day 1-4: On assignment shooting the inimitable Shantell Martin creating her latest and largest piece to date, “Don’t Hide” located at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver.
Over the course of four days she allowed me full creative freedom to document her as she took on this massive endeavor of a 20,000 square foot sidewalk mural.
Joking around,I mentioned to her that capturing her process was very similar to capturing a small child or wild animal; erratic movements and completely unpredictable. She Laughed, agreed, and continued on spray painting. As challenging to shoot as she is an absolute pleasure to work with. An inspiring experience to work alongside such a remarkably talented individual and team. Many thanks to Nine Dot Arts and The Denver Theatre District for putting up with me for 4 days straight, and Shantell for the invitation to the mural marathon. The piece is a definite winner.
I've created an overview of the 4 days in a web gallery. Check it out!
"My work is a meditation of lines - a language of creatures, and messages that invites her viewers to share in her creative process. Part autobiographical and part dreamlike whimsy, Martin has created her own world that bridges between fine art, performance art, technology, and the everyday experience: conversation, objects, and places." -Shantell Martin
It's been an extended winter and we're getting excited for spring around here. We decided to adhere to the calm before the storm and sneak in a few vintage motorcycle shots before the blizzard hit. And it hit hard, over 2 feet of snow just a few days after this shoot. Time to head back for the hills.

I feel new types of subjects always help to keep the vision fresh as an artist. That being said, recently I had an opportunity to work with the lovely and talented local performing artist, Ashlee Wagoner and her mesmerizing collection of LED hula-hoops.
After almost calling off the shoot due to a sub-torrential downpour, we went ahead and decided to battle the rain, fading light, and a surprise cameo from The Denver Cruisers, a local bicyclist club. Tons of fun getting our socks soggy on this shoot.
