Laura Tully is a fashion blogger recently featured on Anthropologie.com. Laura loves all things vintage, just like I do, so we traveled to Caldwell, Idaho together for her latest fashion photography shoot. Thanks to Megan Garbani for her wonderful make-up artistry.
Creating an image library for Shore Lodge has necessitated some early morning shoots. This example is a personal favorite and one of their most widely used images. For a shot like this you have to get up before dawn to meet the perfect moment, capturing the best light for highlighting interior as well as exterior details.
The Cutwater opened at Shore Lodge on June 16th, after months of remodeling. Nestled at the waterfront of Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho, Shore Lodge was rated the 3rd Best Resort in the West 2016 by Condé Nast Traveler. The new restaurant, bar and patio open right onto the lake, making for a perfect summer experience!
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.

Marketing and advertising photography designed in an artistic, photojournalistic style can add great value to a business. I've had the opportunity to create many of the images for Shore Lodge, The Cove Spa and Whitetail Club, which are nestled in the foothills and on the water's edge of beautiful Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho. Art direction from Smarthinking has contributed to the award winning success of their remodeling and re-branding efforts. Since 2012, they’ve been selected as Best Resort by Northwest Events + Meetings, Four Star Award winner by Forbes Travel Guide, and a #1 Luxury Hotel in Idaho by US News & World Report, to name a few
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.
