Doe Bay Fest

This past summer, I was able to get a last-minute ticket and ride to Doe Bay.   I hadn't planned on going to the festival but was incredibly happy to end my summer on such a wonderful note.   I only shot three rolls of film, two color and one black & white.  The rest of the time I spent soaking in the incredible music and people.    Here are a few shots of young people enjoying life.    I hope to make it back this year.  If you are able to get a ticket, I would absolutely recommend going.   If nothing else, the slip 'n slide was worth the trip.  

I will be adding a few additional photos to a facebook album later this week - diversifying my social media.

Colorado in Film

12 sets of negatives sit coiled on my shelf.  

My friend Matthew recently lent me his film scanner to help me digitize my ever-growing film library.   I will be posting examples of my work as I get them scanned and edited.    All shots were made with my Rolleiflex on expired film (circa 1996-2001) donated to me by friends and mentors.   The results are unique and unexpected.

Below are a few photographs taken on a drive from Grand Junction to Telluride, CO in September of 2011.   I was on my way to attend and volunteer with the 2011 Telluride Photo Festival.   The festival was incredible and I was excited to have the opportunity to spend a day capturing a bit of my roadside journey.   Also, it happened to be my 27th birthday.   I highly recommend celebrating your birthday with an adventure visiting strangers in a beautiful location.
