India to Yellowstone // 3/31/2016

This winter didn’t go as planned. But what does. My first few years shooting full time I had always scrambled throughout the winter months finding jobs. Leading up to this winter I took time to have things lined out for projects. That didn’t work.

I’ve been adapting this winter and it has been keeping me fluid and adjusting. I like it.

Opportunities to increase my skill set have been challenging me creatively, fitness wise and on the business side of things. For those of you who know me, you know that I especially like the business side of things. I find business and art very similar but interested by, traditionally, how artists fail at that. And their art fails because of that. But the services that are being offered to small business owners via the internet is progressing artists work, obviously, but expanding the possibilities for business development and partnerships. I am pretty excited about that, (Nerd alert).

Since returning home from India in late November I’ve been using the winter months to shoot around my home in Bozeman. Its been good for me. Keeps things fresh. I’ve been more focused on my climbing this winter and training for an upcoming trip to Alaska this spring. Which I am really excited about. I haven’t been to the range for five seasons… Part of my training has included lots of ski touring which is always fun. I joined my friends Noah, Tyler and Adam on a three day tour in Yellowstone. We covered approximately 55 ground miles. It will not only rank as a highlight from this winter but a super experience with good friends. And ultimately those moments matter.

Here are a few images that I am stoked with from this winter.
