I'm gearing up for a big, exciting adventure starting Monday. I'll be road-tripping up into central British Columbia to spend a week photographing this year's big Sockeye Salmon run with John Eascott and Yva Momatiuk. A new subject to photograph and two of my favorite people on earth; I can't wait!
For decades John and Yva have been adventuring and photographing together around the globe while creating stories for publications like National Geographic, Smithsonian, and BBC. The two of them are such a team that they never differentiate which of them took any particular photograph. On National Geographic's photographer bio page they are profiled together. They are an inspirational duo and I am more than proud to call them friends.
We will be working with DSLRs equipped with underwater housings to capture the "fishy" perspective. I'm gearing up with a heavy wetsuit, booties, gloves, hood, and snorkel gear. It's going to be some cold wet fun with thousands of bright red fish. I'm not sure how much connectivity I'll have up North, but I'll try to keep updates rolling on FB and Twitter as possible.
On my way home, I'm planning to meet up with a crew of great friends to backpack and photograph fall color in the North Cascades for five days. Should be an amazing couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
PS: Some of you might notice a whole new look to the blog page. It's all new throughout the site. A new look and lots of new content as well as a new e-commerce engine. I invite you, the more observant readers, to explore around the site. Let me know what you like and what you don't. I'll be announcing the changes later this week.
