Swift Campout 2018 – Sunday

I did not take nearly as many photos this day. Pretty sure it was the steady downhill  where we didn’t want to stop, the thought of sweet potato fries waiting for us in Fort Rock, and the mad gravel dash – leg burner back to the vehicles just like last year. We DID STOP AND…

Swift Campout 2018 – Saturday

We woke up to a morning mist on the rim. Coffee to warm our bones and watched the sunrise burn the away the clouds sitting inside the volcano. We surfed down some single track until we got back onto the gravel and flew down a steep descent with incredible time.   Then came the grind….

Swift Campout 2018 – Thursday Night & Friday

We arrived late Thursday evening at Fork Rock. Loaded the bikes, and rode off into the desert looking for a good place to camp. The moon was so bright we rode without our lights, set camp on top of a bunch of cow patties and passed out. We set out late morning, the roads gradually…

Smokin Jo

Its not often that you get the opportunity to shoot one of your favorite current Muay Thai fighters, so when the opportunity arose while I was in Seattle I took it. Jo Nattawut and his Kru, Khunpon were on layover while flying out to China for a fight (that he won!). They ate dinner with…

Christmas Adventures

Walls of snow block most roads up top of the cascades in winter. A fact I always seem to forget when I head out looking for adventure and a rad spot to camp. Especially when your traveling companion is in a little front wheel drive car with tire chains that fit debatably at best. We…

Kids fighting Kids

I was able to shoot for one of the fights at least at the recent USEACA event. I had the pleasure of catching a couple moments from these two warriors giving eachother hell. This sport is beautiful.

Election Protests.

I have been meaning to update this one for a while, I was able to make my way out to a local protest the day after the Elections. First time doing an event of sorts and enjoyed it. Great energy, lots of passion and I feel like it came out in every shot I took.

Letters for Bresha

15 year old Bresha Meadows faces life in prison for allegedly killing her abusive father. This was a panel to raise funds for her legal fees, to send and show support for Bresha, and to discuss the criminalization of women of color in situations of self defense. Thank you for allowing me to shoot this panel….

Get me out.

So despite the excitement of the past week and the selection of the new President, I was able to finish my Piolet. And in spite of the excitement of the past week, I needed to get the fuck out. So after work Dan, Josh, and I decided to do a night ride out to the hills and…

Muay Thai for Charity

So this past weekend, we had the honor to have a couple of our guys perform in the Muay Thai Charity smoker/exhibition even at Muay Thai Iyarin in support of the Local PNW Muay Thai community and proceeds going to young fighters in an impoverished portion of Thailand. The event went great, building bridges between gyms…

Descend on Bend: Photo Dump

Here is an outrageous photo dump of the past weekends festivities at Descend on Bend at Hole in the ground here in Oregon. I have recently acquired a Fuji XT1 and was excited to put the new camera through its paces and hopefully tune it in for my liking. I was not disapointed. We were…

Night Hike: Diamond Peak Wilderness

We have not had much time to ourselves recently, or the ability to achieve some much needed escape. This was a small camp-in-hike trip we were able to do one evening after work. I was able to catch some beautiful sunset and milky way shots. Enjoy.
