Photo Assignment/iPhotography – Created a variety of marketing images for Espresso Smith Coffee Company. I am not a coffee drinker, but I can tell you Espresso Smith coffee is 100x better tasting than Starbucks over priced crap. And the new Whiskey Barrel brand is a great after dinner coffee.


Subjects/Athletes in the News – Lindsey Vonn : “After talking with my family and consulting with my coaches and trainers, I have decided to take a break from the World Cup circuit. Since my intestinal infection last month, I have been struggling with my energy and strength. I believe that some time off the mountain will help me regain the physical strength that I require to compete at the level that I demand from myself. I want to be emphatic that this has nothing to do with my recent interview with People Magazine. I had completed that interview weeks before I was in the hospital with the intestinal infection. I want to thank my sponsors for their continued support. Most of all I want to thank my fans for all of the kind words and love you have shared with me. I wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday and look forward to getting back on the mountain in the new year.” -Lv

Just For Fun – Just in case you haven’t seen this video on Facebook or Twitter. Here it is … the Instagram Nickelback Parody. I couldn’t figure out how to embed so you’ll have to follow the link below. Enjoy.

2012 Snow Angels – Yeeeeee Hawwwww, I can finally release some of the images and Behind the Scenes video that I created over seven months ago (Twin Peaks) and images that I’ve been creating over the past 4 months (Jackson’s) for the 2012 Snow Angels issue of Mile High Sports Magazine. Wow – this years Snow Angels layouts cost me some money – equipment failures along with parking and No Right Turn On Red violations will cut my profit line in half … if not more. Cost of Doing Business? Yep. Watch the BTS Video for “H&MU Credits and Special Thank You’s.” Locations: Breckenridge, Colorado & Jackson’s Sport’s Bar/Denver.

*I apologize for the crappy Magazine On Floor reproduction … I’ll update with better quality PDFs when available.
