A few weeks back I got an assignment to photograph the 2016 National Green Latinos Summit held at the Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park. The three-day summit was a gathering of the top environmental non-for-profit administrators to network, discuss the movement and come together to further their cause of addressing national, regional and local environmental, natural resources and conservation issues that significantly affect the health and welfare of the Latino community within the United States. I was hired by Earthjustice to photograph the three-day event capturing moments and documenting the fun. It was a wonderful time. Here are some of my favorites from my time with them. -M

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. This is awesome because they often times present an opportunity for me to think of cool concepts for portraits or dive into a long term photo story about whatever featured topic we are covering. It feels like working at a big metro newspaper except our photo department has more of a say with how the photos are laid out. In the latest issue of Balance, I had the opportunity to photograph a local writer here in town for the release of her new book. The editors and I were kicking around ideas for conveying that she is a humor writer (and sometimes columnist for our paper) and that her first book was like launching into a new direction for her career. I came up with an idea of using paper airplanes made of newsprint. With the help of my sister Katie, we folded over 300 airplanes. They gave the desired effect. With me lucking out with the writer’s beautiful home and window light, I made numerous images I was really happy with. Below is how we ended up running the story. Thanks for looking. -M
