An Apartment Worth Of Things

Intermixed with my daily photo blog, I’ve been working on a project where I collect all of the things in a category that I can find in my apartment. These are objects that are rarely displayed prominently and mostly scattered throughout various containers or hidden in closets. My pace for this project is more of a slow walk through the woods than my normal mad dash to the finish, but slowly the photos are starting to come together in a collection. It’s rather absurd how much stuff I’ve already acquired in my lifetime.

All the hard drives:

Best Trail Running in Massachusetts(in my new opinion)

While scouting for wide open fields for a new trail running photography project with Janji and Dylan, Emma and I stumbled upon Ward Reservation in Andover, MA. This place rocks. There is so much diversity here: bog boardwalks, fields, hills, single track, dirt roads, views of Boston, stone walls, dark woods, and even an epically large staircase. There are ton of short loops you could do or longer 10+ mile loops through the whole property. It’s not the most technically challenging place for trail running, just a really beautiful one.

We had a very talented crew, including Dylan shooting video, Meghan assisting, and Micah, Ryan, and Maddy as our athletes. My parents’ dog Cadi came along for the adventure too.

Things started off with a bang, as the skies opened up and we got poured on as soon the cameras were out. After an hour of rain things quieted down and we were blown away by a double rainbow as the sun started to set. This was one of those shoots where we had to stay very flexible and balance what nature had in store with what we had envisioned.

I’ve always been a runner so I really loved this opportunity to photograph an activity I love and have so much for respect for our athletes commitment to the sport. Now I need to go back to Ward as a runner and check out what the rest of the trails have to offer.

Counting Nature: New Hampshire Fish Ladders

I’m starting a new personal photography project on different ways humans count nature to better understand it. The first shoot for this project was with New Hampshire Fish and Game in the Seacoast region as they surveyed anadromous river herring, counted other species of fish on the fish ladder, and stocked inland water bodies.

Tyler Scholl, a designer for Woo Sports, was our willing volunteer for some full moon kiteboarding. I had hoped that sky would be a little bit brighter, but a little high ISO, slow shutter speed photography never hurt anybody.
