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.

I hate you because you are so damn good! :-) Your latest shots in the Fall newsletter inspire.

So did you climb the tower yourself first? What grade did you have to send to get to your shooting location?

Celeb -

Hello. I let the climbers climb the routes most of the time becuase I have so much gear. It would be dicey to lead the routes and expensive if a camera got crushed in a fall...I never climbed to the top as I was working most of the trip. Spent one day climbing without a camera.
