From the Archive: Fireflies

This image has always stuck with me throughout the years. Not as something that I feel has a lot of editorial value, but serves to remind me of how important creativity is when trying to capture even the most simple things. This picture was taken while sitting on a farm in Indiana or Illinois (can't remember at the moment), and the fireflies were just going crazy. After numerous attempts of trying capture them in a single frame without much luck, I decided to just pan the camera with a low shutter speed. I really like the one or two streaks of yellow that streak across the frame. Is it art? Is it journalism? Not sure, but I like it.

Mountains before Winter

The last week has been a little crazy with researching new photo stories, starting marketing campaigns, and spending a lot of time in the mountains before the winter sets in. Earlier in the week a friend and I hiked up to Robin Lakes in a 14 mile loop and yesterday Terry and I got up before the sunrise and drove to Washington Pass to climb the South Arete of South Early Winter Spire. We made it to the top and had a beautiful day of climbing in the high peaks of Washington.

Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota-10.5.10

I am back on the reservation working on several projects in different formats. Driving into Pine Ridge the other day, I was struck by the starkness of the place, but instantly welcomed by the people I have come to call my friends. We are camping out at the Wilson Ranch with "Junior" and "Lil' Rich". Last night we sat around, shared some tacos and watched the football game talking about life on the reservation and some of the struggles that young people are faced with growing up here. Being in this place is always humbling, difficult, yet beautiful in it's own way.
