CrossFit South Denver

Fitness is something that I am passionate about.  I love that feeling of getting into the zone at the gym and leaving everything in there.  When I walk out of the gym after a great workout, I feel like I'm floating on a cloud, my head is clear and I get the feeling of accomplishment.  
Last week I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with CrossFit South Denver.  It was a fun shoot and helped me to launch the fitness portfolio that I have been working on over the past few months.  You can check it and more of my work out here:

Thanks and have a great day,

5280 Angler & Boxwood Gulch Ranch

Working with local companies is always a great pleasure.  I get to meet cool and interesting people, go to some really rad locations and hone in on my craft all at the same time.  That's why I was excited to do a fly fishing photoshoot with 5280 Angler at Boxwood Gulch Ranch.  This beautiful piece of property sits on the South Platte River near Bailey Colorado and is home to some monster rainbow, brown and palomino trout. 
The day of the shoot was dreary with rain storms moving in and out all day.  Obviously this is not the ideal weather for a photoshoot.  Having the experience and the gear to shoot in the rain helps but it doesn't matter how many times I've done it, its still makes me nervous.  At one point during the shoot, the rain kept coming down harder and harder.  I was having to wipe my lens off every 30 seconds or so.  But the fish were still bitting and I was having a blast capturing the excitement.  Being an outdoor/adventure photographer, this is not what I have to do but what I live for doing. 

Below are some of my favorite shots from this shoot.

2018 KBF Trail 30 Lake Wanahoo, NE

Being a photographer, I rarely enter tournaments.  The few that I have entered, I've been so caught up in photographing the sunrise, other people catching fish and anything shiny that I forget to do any fishing for myself.  And that's what I figured would happen with this tournament as well.  However, that's not what happened.  This is probably the first time I've fished a full day in a zone that I didn't even know I had.  
Picking up a few fish quickly enthused me.  Being the first one to pick up 5 fish got me motivated.  Then after an hour or so of not really catching anything, I ran into Nate "The Wizard of Wanahoo" Gloria where he told me that he needed one more to have 5 on the board.  I then realized that he was right behind me in 2nd.  Seconds later, he caught his 5th fish and passed me for first.  While I watched.  This was fuel for the fire.  I must have thrown that spinner bait 2,000 times using a technique my buddy Joseph Sanderson taught me a few years back.  
Towards the end of the day, when my energy levels were low, I ran into AJ Mcwhorter on the water.  I was in 5th or 6th and he reminded me to just keep grinding.  Just that little bit of encouragement got me going again, casting at every thing that looked fishy (twice).  With 30 minutes left in the tournament, I landed my biggest fish of the day (17.5) and jumped into 3rd place.  A couple of casts later I lost the spinner bait that I had been throwing all day.  When I went to check the standings, I had just been passed.  It was a tight finish and I ended up in 4th place beating the Wizard of Wanahoo by 1/4 of an inch.  "my greatest fishing achievement so far"  
After a long bass fishing drought, this day of fun and excitement really fueled my love for bass fishing again.   
Thank you KBF, Wanahoo Lake and all of the awesome people that make up this sport!

Here are some of the pics that I did take during the trip.
Hope you enjoy and for more of my work you can check out my website at

After hanging with this guy for a minute, I threw a frog for about an hour.  No Luck
Look at those legs though!
