First, You Must Eat with your Eyes

First, You Must Eat with your Eyes

“Primeiro você deve comer com os olhos” Years ago, I was out to dinner with my Brazilian friend, starving, fork in hand and about to dive into my just-delivered, fancy restaurant dish. Before I could take a bite, she interrupted me with a smile, put a hand on my forearm and repeated a Portuguese phrase. […]

Powder Day at Bridger Bowl Ski Area

Montana has been in need of some snow. It’s been a while since we had much and the local ski mountain crew have been holding their breath for a boost. Yesterday they got their wish. I woke up to reports of over 23 inches of snow and it seemed like the whole town called in […]

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

I have always been jealous of my photographer buddies in Portland, Oregon who get to photograph the muddy, up-and-coming sport of cyclocross. It looks like such a wonderfully goofy social sport event and the photos they would bring back from it made it look like just a blast to photograph. Last weekend I finally got the […]

A Day with the Empanada Lady in Missoula, Montana

About a month ago, I headed over to Missoula, Montana to spend the day documenting the locally famous “Empanada Lady” for Montana Quarterly Magazine.

Honoring Our Montana Veterans

Honoring Our Montana Veterans

I spent last week chasing down old veterans for our Memorial Day coverage here at the newspaper.

So one of my favorite things about my new staff photographer gig at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle is that the newspaper also publishes 20 or so magazines and tabloid papers throughout the year.
