Local’s Guide to Lake Tahoe | Tahoe Food Photography

By |April 20th, 2020|Commercial Photography, Food, Tahoe, Tips, Travel|

As a longtime (14 years! Whew!) opinionated local, I have no shortage of suggestions for where to eat, drink, play and explore in Lake Tahoe.  I love where I live and I love showing it off even more.  After many years of just sharing this info via email, I figured that a nice pandemic slowdown was the perfect time to share some love to my favorite Tahoe haunts.  As such, here is my official Local's Guide to Lake Tahoe!

St Regis Aspen Wedding | Aspen, CO | Sarah + Tanner

By |March 30th, 2020|Travel, wedding|

When Sarah and Tanner got engaged and started planning their St Regis Aspen wedding, the first thing they wanted to do was to find a photographer that would fit their vision of their day, which included very little formal photos, no posing, incredible food, a relaxed atmosphere, and their buddy's rock'n'roll band from college.  WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?

How to Survive the SXSW Cancellation | SXSW Event Photographer | Part 2

By |March 11th, 2020|Austin, Commercial Photography, Event Photos, SXSW, texas, Tips, Travel|

Were you headed to SXSW? Do you know how to survive a SXSW cancellation? 75,000 people were about to descend upon Austin, TX for SXSW, one of the world's premier music, film and tech festivals.  For the first time in 34 years, the event will not go on.  While SXSW is mostly known for its music festival, what really brings the money to Austin (and $350 million plus of it at that), is the Interactive portion, which draws a young audience of inventors, investors and risk takers looking for networking opportunities and the next big thing.  At any given moment all over the city there are thousands of opportunities to learn, network, workshop and cultivate relationships.  For 8 years now, I've been working for the Sales Department at the event, as a SXSW event photographer responsible for documenting the return on investment for their sponsors. It's exhausting. It's exhilarating. It's incredibly fun. And now, it's not happening. Here's how to survive in the wake of this devastating news.
