We've nicknamed this secret family campsite Bluebird in honor of Alfred Larson, who has built and maintained more than 300 bluebird houses in Idaho over the last 35 years. There's even a documentary film about Al at www.bluebirdman.com. This bluebird nestbox was 20 feet from our tent, making it an extra sweet location. Family members John McClain, Hali Goodrich and Michael Ryan.
Brian is a creative powerhouse with his restaurant Saint Lawrence Gridiron, serving customers the most delicious brisket sandwiches, pulled pork with mustard sauce, grilled bison and bones & toast. I'm not actually sure what bones & toast is, but I do know that in addition to being a wonderful chef, Brian is also an amazing architect. I was honored to create a portrait for him to reflect his unique creative vision.

My degree in Fine Art Photography taught me how to design a good photograph. But it was my first job after college, working as a newspaper photographer for the Idaho Statesman, that taught me to be quick and assertive in order to get close to the action and not miss the moment. When Home Depot hired me to photograph the essence of their new paint department in a photojournalistic style, I was excited about the possibilities. Here are a few of the images that resulted from the assignment.
I met David at the Boise Towne Square Mall in the fall of 2016. He was just walking out of Forever 21 when he caught my eye and I instantly knew that I wanted to photograph him. Unbeknownst to me at the time, he's an incredible athlete. He is a member of the competitive cheerleading squad Riot Cheer in Idaho and an all around awesome dude.
I had a great time working with the video team at Micron to illustrate their cutting edge data technology. The film was shown at Micron's Global Storage Summit in NYC. In the photos below, Alf de Varona gives direction to actor Laura Tully. The before and after shots demonstrate Alf's post production special effects. Many thanks to Micron for the inspiring creative environment.
