I recently photographed some work for a gallery in Chicago, Volume Gallery. They curate shows from the work of contemporary furniture designers. Their works really ride that line between art and function. I’ll be in Chicago again at the end of the month to work on their next catalog, but here are some photos of their last projects that I photographed in January.

Interiors photography has been a love of mine for some time now. I recently photographed this amazing and light-filled residence for a client, who is an art advisor in Chicago. Stunning art. Stunning decor.


When action sports photographer Aaron Belford approached me on shooting video, and aerial imagery for Carlson Motorsports I couldn’t refuse. During his off season Pro-Lite Rider Andrew Carlson does anything but relax.  When Andrew isn’t racing his snowmobiles in the AMSOIL Snowcross series, or at the X Games, he is out on his dirt bike or UTV.  We were capturing Andrew breaking in his new Polaris RZR Xp1000 UTV at ERX Motorpark in Elk River, MN.

Here are some of my favorite images.

Each spring our boss lady, Eliesa, puts on a wedding bootcamp as a refresher before high season kicks in, and it is super inspirational and always gets me geared up for my weddings around the corner. This year was no different. Below are a few snaps from the day practicing everything from light to portraits to details to dance-floor shots.

Along side photography I love capturing video, I’m also a MAJOR nerd. I always try to find ways to combine the two whenever possible. With the current technology in RC flight systems ever-increasing, flying a camera several hundred feet in the air has become something almost anyone can do. Some people call these “Drones” or “UAV’s” enthusiasts generally call them Multirotors.

I’m currently testing and tuning a 6 rotor monster that will fly anything from a GoPro to my full frame D800. To get a hang of things I have started with smaller and simple to fly. That brings us to the 350 QX:Blade this little guy will fly a GoPro miles in the sky. Using GPS to collect altitude, speed, and location this multirotor is a powerful little package.

Here are a few shots from my maiden flight with the Blade.

All went well and everything was in 1 piece when I ended my flight.

I will have a post or two in the near future showcasing some video and the larger 6 rotor monster!
