Mirada Fine Art

This past weekend I photographed Steve Sonnen, the owner of Mirada Fine Art. Steve’s gallery is in the Indian Hills area, just a few miles southwest of Denver. It is one of my favorite galleries to visit, and I get to often since I usually photograph their artist receptions for the gallery as well. Here is a post from 2010 from some artist receptions at Mirada. I’ll have to compile another post soon with some updated artist reception pictures as well, but for now here are just a few of my favorite images of Steve.

Colorado Brides Magazine Cover

Just got a hold of the first issue of Colorado Brides magazine, which features my image on the cover as well, as an additional image inside. The images accompany a story about local dress designer Alisa Benay, whose dresses were used for this shoot in downtown Denver. The shoot was done a couple of years ago as a collaboration project with the dress maker, model, MUA, & myself. You can see the rest of the images from the shoot in this gallery for those of you who are interested: Bridal Portraits Gallery

Saunders Construction for Colorado Biz Magazine

Here is a tear sheet from the September issue of Colorado Biz magazine. I photographed two of the execs. of Saunders Construction in front of the new IKEA building that they were in the process of completing at the time. I had envisioned this shot before they arrived, but because of some bad weather I didn’t think we would be able to get out side to do it. Luckily, it cleared up for a few minutes for us to get outside and shoot them in front of the building.

Urban Cycling Photos with Kevin

I did some photographs of another local cyclist here in Denver in early August. I had envisioned this shot for a while and wanted to find a cyclist to shoot these with underneath I-70 here in Denver. Kevin and his fiance, who just so happened to be looking for a wedding photographer at the time found me, and Kevin volunteered to come out and ride for the photos. We made some great images, and it was definitely a bit of a learning experience shooting out of the back of my car w/ flashes for the first time. Big thanks again to Justin for his help again, totally couldn’t have done this without him.

Dr. Deb Friesen portrait for Health Data Management magazine

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to do some photographs of Dr. Deb Friesen of the Kaiser Permanente’s Colorado Medical Group. Coincidentally, I had photographed Dr. Friesen about a year earlier for Colorado Biz magazine. So, the AD and I knew going into this we wanted to something a bit different and away from the computer like last time, even through the computers / IT were a major component of the story. We did a few photos with Dr. Friesen with a white backdrop and then a few just on location in the halls of her offices. As with most business/health portraits we are working on a pretty tight schedule, and only had Dr. Friesen for about 20 minutes. So, it was definitely a big help to have my assistant Justin around, so thanks to him.

Fixed Gear Cycling Photos with Devon

I am working this summer to rebuild and expand my cycling portfolio to include all types of cyclist and cycling lifestyle. Colorado is such an active state for cyclists of all types, so I am trying to get out and photograph all the different disciplines of the sport. I’ve been asking local cyclist of all types to volunteer to come out and shoot, and this was the first of what I hope will be a long run of cyclist this summer. The first person I photographed on this project is Devon, a local fixed gear rider. We photographed these images on the north side of downtown Denver in a bit more industrial district, and ended up getting some great light and clouds.

The image in the background in a rendering of the completed corporate headquarters that DaVita is currently building in Denver.

Micheline Casey for Information Management magazine

A couple months ago I did some business portraits with Micheline Casey, a Senior Information Strategy Consultant at U.S. Department of Energy, who was picked as one of Information Management magazine’s Top 25 this year. I photographed Micheline in front of Colorado’s capitol building,  where she had worked for the State of Colorado previously. The forecast for the day had called for pretty heavy showers, but since it is Denver, it never happened. So we lucked out a bit and had some great sunlight in the morning to work with, and not a drop of rain in sight.
