YAY! @ Boulder Farmer's Market

I recently started doing some work for a company called Livin' the YAY! Life with my friend Amy. They have hired us to shoot some videos for them, but as a side job, a few weeks ago hired us to work a booth at the Boulder County Farmers Market. I thought I would make the most of our 8 hours amongst the farmers by putting together this little slideshow.

YAY! Life is focused on encouraging people in their passions...getting them in touch with the things they love. So, the options are pretty much endless! Check out their site and support a new local business!

PS. If you submit your YAY! you may be selected to be a subject in one of the videos we plan to shoot!

Built to Spill

Built to Spill played at the Gothic Theatre in Denver last night, which happens to be my favorite venue in CO...Well, at least for watching a show. I would have to say that for shooting a show, Red Rocks still takes the cake.

Check out the good ol' Reverb Blog for the rest of my photos!

Purdy Outhouse

20100909_OUTHOUSE_PINEAPPLE_PORTRAIT_1
Purdy Outhouse called his friends on the East Coast to tell them that he and his wife were having a baby. To their surprise, Outhouse was actually referring to “Baby Piney Apple,” which he has been growing for the past 22 months at his home in Firestone.

Yes, Purdy Outhouse is seriously this man's name. His name is definitely unique, I must say...but I guess Purdy likes keeping it weird! He decided to grow a pineapple plant in Colorado, and has been doing so for almost two years now. I love how random, yet entertaining, photojournalism can be.

Rainbow

20100908_RAINBOWWEB

A small rainstorm blew into town today, hopefully aiding the firefighters in their battle against the Fourmile Canyon Fire. The rain didn't last long, but gifted the community with a brilliant double rainbow that reached across the entire town...

"I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life." Genesis 9: 13-15

Fourmile Canyon Fire

The Fourmile Canyon Fire has been raging for two full days now. Although I wasn't technically on the job, I managed to get a few photos of the smoke plume in the early stages of the fire. A few more frames can be seen on the Longmont Times-Call's photo gallery.

David Gray & Ray LaMontagne

IMG_6289

And here you have it: My first experience shooting at Red Rocks!

Unfortunately we weren't allowed up front during Ray's performance, which was a bit of a let down since that was my reason for going...oh well! Mr. LaMontagne had a flawless set and I'm pretty sure wooed almost every woman with his voice. On the other hand, I have to admit I only know one of David Gray's songs, although his high energy was quite entertaining.
