If you’re a photographer and you’ve never been to India… go! India is full of vibrant colors, rich culture, and beautiful people! I had an amazing time walking and exploring the streets of towns like Jaipur, Udaipur, Puna, Jodphur, and they all have something unique and beautiful to offer. For instance, Jaipur, is the Pink Town, so much of the old Jaipur is painted in pink! Jodphur, on the other hand, is the Blue City, so most of the town’s buildings are blue! Its incredible. Here are a few clips from my time in India! If you’d like to see more, don’t hesitate to ask! I am always a ham to show my photography!

It goes without saying that with Kirsti Wolfe designing a home, it will be absolutely beautiful, but this one was just my style! The Atkins Residence is a contemporary home in the heart of the thick forest of Black Butte. With mountain views and custom amenities from head to toe, I was really hoping Len and Karen Atkins would adopt me to move in! Here are a few highlights of my time photographing their home.
After being gone for so long, coming home to Bend makes me really appreciate sights and places that before I took for granted… like the Tower Theater. So, last night, I decided to stop and take a closer look and even snap a few shots for the ole’ stock portfolio.
Here’s one I liked.
I recently had the great pleasure of working in collaboration with one of my best friends and fellow commercial photographer, Jessica Grenier for a great company, M&N Luxury Vacations in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Our job was to photograph M&N’s brand new condo in the Icon Vallarta towers and their new baby girl, the Mystique, a 56-foot Voyager yacht. They are offering this beautiful condo as a vacation rental in PV along with the availability of a chartered yacht (separate or together) and needed architectural and lifestyle photos for their print collateral.
