Cole shot one of the weirdest things ever and it’s amazing.

In May I went to the Dekalb Co. Animal shelter to photograph rescue pitbulls for a story by Tom Junod (of recent controversy) about the state of pitbulls in America. The shelter had about 150 dogs and over 80 percent of them were pits. I had such a great time on this shoot, even though it was total chaos and a dog peed inside an apple box. Thanks to Deb Wenhoff and Michael Norseng for such a rad assignment and Dan Depew for the assisting/dog wrangling/ good company. Go adopt a pitbull!

Saw some of the Google Fiber billboards today in Provo. Always cool to see projects I’ve worked on out in the real world!

I also shot some ads for google fiber wayyyy back in december and they apparently went on some billboards. Hurray for shooting a family of 14 in a tiny kitchen that isn’t a set!

New cover of Russian Esquire with Ethan Hawke photographed by Michael Friberg.

I instagramed this a while back but really stoked to have had the cover of Russian esquire last month. There are a bunch of rad photos in there but I have no idea what any of it is about.

The homey Jake Reinhart helped me out on a shoot yesterday in Pittsburgh. Top notch dude. Afterwards we went and ate thai food and then looked at an amazing photo book exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Art. I like Pittsburgh.

Where is your studio exactly and how long have you been working there?

My studio is in a weird industrial area of Salt Lake City. Not the cool, up and coming type of industrial. Straight up mid 90’s buildings and gravel factories type industrial. I have…

Thanks to Pauline for featuring me and to cole Wilson for the #hardstyle photos.

I Started a new project about the oil boom in my native West, Texas last week. Didn’t really shoot many photos but met a lot of great people and i’m excited to go back in a month or so and really dig in. I got a serious education and learned a lot of unexpected things about the process.
