Two Thousand and Nineteen

A large part of 2019 was spend working on the Jurrasic World Live Tour, a brand new production that brings nearly real dinosaurs to an arena where a show that fits into the Jurassic World narrative is performed. I traveled to 3 states over 10 months and personally captured over 20,000 images.

Photographing the brand new Disney on Ice show would involve 4 different cities an introduction of Mary Poppins and hearing “Let it Go” for another year on repeat.

 I was able to slow down and work on a personal project close to home, including inspiration from Jay Inslee’s brief political run. The project, due out in 2020, is a light-hearted take on political issues and stereotypes in our society through a primary school election.

Between all the travel in 2019 I was able to slow down both my life and shutter. I spent much of my personal time going back to my roots, playing with film and large format techniques to refocus my creativity in this hyper-digital world. My 4 year old has become a great hiking companion.

The Jurassic World Live Tour, a brand new production that brings nearly real dinosaurs to an arena, involved traveling to 3 states over 10 months and personally capturing over 20,000 images of these prehistoric creatures and their makers.

2019 ended with a personal trip to southern Nevada exploring a new project of human interaction with the environment. A personal exploration I will continue into 2020.

I woke up new years day at the Yuvepi Lodge in Grand Canyon National Park to several inches of beautiful, white, fresh snow. The prettiest new years morning of my intire life.
