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 just this morning saw that I won 2nd Place in the monthly Sportsshooter.com 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.
