The holiday season was packed with traveling, shooting, becoming an aunt and working on my new web site, which should be up and running in the next week. I’m really excited about the new site and would love to hear your thoughts – I’m going for authentic and original, streamlined and sexy. Thanks to the design-savvy Sacha Halenda of FormFive! It will also link to instagram – my latest obsession. I can’t seem to get enough of that instant, at-your-fingertip inspiration!!
I shot the Adventure Film Festival at the Boulder Theater this past weekend and will post photos soon…In the meantime, here’s a photo of Jeremy Collins performing Saturday night.
I’m super excited to see The Feed Zone in print! I had so much fun working with Biju and Allen on this project and now it’s a real live cookbook, hardback and all, with simple, delicious recipes and gorgeous photos – some of which are mine! The Feed Zone’s all about Biju’s kitchen skills and Allen’s training smarts combining to help cyclist Levi Leipheimer go from serious illness to the best physical condition of his life. It’s a perfect cookbook for athletes who like to push the limit and regular people, too. Get a copy of The Feed Zone here. Read more…
This past June I assisted Portland-based photographer Boone Speed with a photo shoot in NYC for FILA. Boone’s not just a super talented artist and an all-around inspiring guy. He used to be a Fila-sponsored climber back in the day, which made the shoot – featuring the company’s newest athlete, pro climber Alex Puccio – that much more fitting. And Boone definitely knows how to shoot climbing, even in NYC.
Green Runway’s debut last week at the Boulder Theater totally blew me away. I’d heard all about the Telluride Aids Benefit, the inspiration for Green Runway, so I knew it was gonna be good, but I had no idea it would be THIS good. It was awesome to see so many people come out to support the Colorado designers and dancers who worked so hard to put the project together, not to mention New Era, the show’s sponsor. It was also super fun to shoot – action, fashion and killer music – what more could a girl ask for? Check out my photo story on Green Runway here!!
I wrote and shot this Perspective on Sam Elias in the current issue of Climbing. Psyched! Our two hour interview boiled down to half a page, whew! There were so many good quotes to choose from…I love Sam’s connected, honest approach to climbing, so refreshing.
