It's ok that I haven't posted here since June. The summer is so short and we are trying to relax and enjoy it. A barrage of photos will commence as soon as the weather cools.

Inspired ~ Montana Fine Art & Editorial Photography

Recently I had the wonderful assignment of photographing and meeting a local inspiration for Arthritis Health Monitor magazine. Kathie Lapcevic is a farmer, teacher, and writer and recently lost 111 lbs. to ease her symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. It was a joy photographing her as you can see here in my three favorites from our shoot.

Castle Doctrine Shooting for The New York Times ~ Montana Fine Art & Editorial Photography

It was a great opportunity but a sad occasion when I was asked to photograph my first assignment for The New York Times of the events surrounding the recent tragic shooting in Missoula, Montana. Below are some selects of the memorial and candlelight vigil for German exchange student, Diren Dede, who was shot and killed by his neighbor, Markus Kaarma.

From the Archive: Crawfordsville, Arkansas ~ Montana Fine Art & Editorial Photography

Crawfordsville, Arkansas, 1988.

During Spring Break my freshman year I bought a ticket to Nashville and spent time driving from there to Memphis and exploring a bit across the Mississippi. On a hot Palm Sunday during one of the worst droughts in the Midwest since the Dust Bowl years, I stumbled on this welcoming family.

From the Archive: Peeping Jane ~ Montana Fine Art & Editorial Photography

In the summer of 1990 I was the only sighted person staying in the dorms at the University of NM. They hosted a program for blind/visually impaired NM teens to help them develop job skills. The counselors were also blind/visually impaired.

This is the only photo I took of any of them through the peephole in my dorm room door.

From the Archive: Powwow ~ Montana Fine Art & Editorial Photography

In 1996 I found myself in Connecticut and had a chance to attend one of the biggest powwows of the time on the Mashantucket Pequot reservation. Schemitzun was the most visually and aurally stimulating thing I had experienced. It was a blur of motion and music until I got up the courage to focus on one individual, Tommy Christian, Assiniboine Sioux, and photograph him in his little red sports car when the rains began.
