Some favorite editorial photographs of mine from February 2014 at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Thanks for stopping by. -M
Some recent work from the last week or so. Thanks for looking. -M
Well I just got through a two week bender being the sole photographer here at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Needless to say I am in need of a proper weekend of relaxation. But our new hired gun/photographer my friend Adrian Sanchez Gonzalez has arrived in the Big Sky and I’m looking forward to working towards making our photo department the best in the state. Confidence is high. Here are some of my better images from the last couple weeks of working solo. Thanks for looking. -M
Never have I been more relieved to put a month behind me. I started 2011 nursing the wounds from a Christmas Day car accident where I was hit by a guy running a red light. Wear your seat belts folks. They saved my life. Despite my Subaru being totaled, a massive concussion, some stitches and some ongoing deep aches and pains, I am lucky to be relatively unscathed. I’ve lost count to how many doctors appointments I’ve been to in January. Because of my accident, I have missed quite a bit of work. But as I rounded out the last days of January, I could honestly say that I am starting to feel a lot better and I am looking forward to a new year of making photos. Here are a couple shots from the past couple of weeks that caught my eye.
A look into the preparation of of the California Farms Duck Club and their efforts to create habitat to sustain their life-long love of duck hunting in the Suisun Marsh.
For the past couple of months, a reporter from my newspaper and I have started working on a year long documentary project focusing on the Suisun Marsh and the Delta. With water usage being such a hot topic in California, we wanted to explore all of the groups and organizations that are staking their claim for water rights. Our first subjects were members of a local duck club and their year-round dedication and passion for creating habitat for waterfowl. I had a great time hanging out with these guys. Stay tuned over the next year for other installments to this series. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. -M
This is a video I did last fall about the community of pet owners that occupy the Lagoon Valley Dog Park outside of Vacaville, California.
I recently discovered this great alternative to youtube called Vimeo. I re uploaded this old video I did last fall on a local dog park. Hope you all like it. Best, -M
