Devils Tower, Wyoming

I'm just back from Devils Tower where I got some stunning images (like the one above of Jacopo Aliamo on 'El Matador') - and we had a fantastic time. I went up to the Tower with some good friends, Gabriela Baumeister and Jacopo Alaimo who is a certified climbing guide in Italy and quite strong. While up at the Tower I also shot portraits of Frank Sanders and a phenomenally talented singer/songwriter (and rock climber) Jessica Kilroy.

I have been shooting a few assignments and working here in the office since my return and am just now getting these images out. It looks to be a very busy fall with workshops, stock shoots and perhaps another trip back up to the tower. This is just an update on the latest news and I thought I would also put up a few of my favorite images from Devils Tower.

My many thanks to Frank and Jessica at the Devils Tower Lodge for their wonderful hospitality.

Michael wins 2nd Place in Photo Contest

I just this morning saw that I won 2nd Place in the monthly photo contest for an image I shot in July of Timy Fairfield rock climbing in a cave at sunset. The caption for that image is: Timy Fairfield hanging from the lip of the Crystal Cave on "Super-Dope" (5.13b) while rock climbing near Jemez Springs, New Mexico.
