My annual trip to The Red River Gorge in Kentucky was a huge success! I got to spend 9 days with friends, climbing, hanging out and taking in God's creation. I lead my first 5.12 outside! I'm already excited for next year.

Detroit Renewable Energy - Detroit, MI

Portrait of a factory worker Tour attendees are guided through the waste to energy process with help from this model Workers monitor various parts of the plant Tour continues in the control room Portrait of a technician

The fine folks over at Calypso Communications hired me to create images for Detroit Renewable Energy's annual report. Some of my favorite shots are the two portraits! Touring this facility was eye opening, they are literally using trash from the city of Detroit to provide power and heat to many buildings. Exciting to see this kind of environmental protection effort going on in Detroit!

I photographed Kurt for MM&E Magazine's 2014 9th Annual Reader's Choice Best of Awards issue this Spring!

What a gorgeous day on the Detroit Riverwalk. We were blessed with some of the best weather for a portrait shoot. Huge fluffy clouds against a deep blue sky made for fantastic reflections in the buildings and partially diffused light on Kurt. Kurt is a DJ at MikeStaff.com, hosts awards shows and parties across Michigan, and a perfect candidate for the 'best of Michigan' awards. I couldn't stop drooling over his 'super' retro Shure Super 55!

Michigan Meetings and Events Magazine recently contacted me to shoot this portrait of Larry for a profile in their publication. The assignment was to show Larry in a classic Detroit business environment, but in the dead of Winter that can be quite a challenge! We chose Cobo Hall for it's wonderful new atrium which is full of light and beautiful glass. You can just make out the people mover in some of these shots. Always a pleasure to work with an such an easy going and great Detroit businessman!
