    A British friend held a party Friday night in honor of the day’s wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. All in attendance (of the party, that is) dressed as well-known Brits, past and present. I had so much fun shooting with my iPhone’s Hipstamatic app, I thought I would post the images here…

  9. Magnus Midtbo: The Strongest Man in Norway

    Norwegian competitive rock climber Magnus Midtbo (Chris Noble & Dan Morris)

    I recently partenered up with legendary photographer Chris Noble and Norweigian rock (climbing) star Magnus Midtbo.  Our subject, Magnus, was flown to Salt Lake City from Washington DC by the Norweigian sport magazine Fri Flyt. He is currently ranked 5th in the world in sport climbing and is one of the few people on the planet to have climbed at the grade of 9b (an absurdly difficult grade… trust me…). A wad of taut muscle, he unflinchingly performed one arm pullups for us again and again as we coached him in body position and facial expressions. Not only a sportsman, he was a true sport during the shoot as well.  Check out his blog to get a peek at his many climbing exploits.

    Although this shoot was my first time with another photographer, I found the experience to be quite enjoyable.  It was great having another set of eyes and hands in studio to brainstorm and troubleshoot.  I can’t say it will become a habit, but I’m certainly glad that this time was with Chris.  I’ve been friends with Chris for many years now (strangely, we both shot for Japan Tobacco Inc. in the past). Photography can be a lonely profession.  It was nice sitting in front of the computer with another person for once!  We both took something valuable away from the experience.  Be sure to check out his website to see some of his incredible work!

  10. Pious Picketing - Portraits of the Most Hated Family in America

    On 23 January 2011, The Westboro Baptist Church paid a visit to Salt Lake City in order to picket Jews, Episcopals, Mormons, the Sundance Film Festival & a high school. While photographing and filming the picket party at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Salt Lake, I had a moment to speak with Fred Phelp’s daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper.  She agreed to bring her group to my photo studio for a quick 20 minute portrait session.

    The image below is of Pastor Fred Phelps’ granddaughter Jael Phelps. The images in this gallery speak to the ability of religions to convince otherwise normal people to do strange and, in this case, hateful things.
