One of my other favorite things to do besides photography……


Sometimes you just have to put down the camera for a bit & let your creative juices flow in another direction. So I was able to pick up an old 1965 Ducati in pretty rough shape & I’ve been working in my spare time to turn it into a cafe racer, or well, maybe an art project! It won’t be super fast but I might look super cool riding it to Starbucks! Here’s a photo essay from where I started to the point where I am now:

This is how I found it in an old barn packed with motorcycles

I bought new rims and had them powder coated

Now to design the seat. Won’t be so much for comfort but more for the “cool” factor. Layered wood with aluminum and eventually will have a small leather cushion to save my butt!

Learning all kinds of new things: respoking the wheels

I cut parts off the frame to make for a more sleek appearance, replaced the shocks with a mono shock and had the frame powder coated.

I bought a custom made tank and polished it.

Well, one casualty;  When using the angle grinder to cut off a piece to hold the battery, the blade snapped & flew up in my face. I was lucky. Just 15 stitches at Urgent Care and it didn’t hit my throat or eyes. Lesson learned: USE SAFETY EQUIPMENT!

Almost there! Just a few more things & I’ll have it ready to ride to Starbucks!

La Belle Vie


With Winter quickly descending on us, we realized that a beautiful Summer and Fall gave us the opportunity to get some great photos. Dancers, cars and food as well as a home for the Wall Street Journal. Nothing could have been better.

Cover Coverage


So excited that I was able to shoot quite a variety of covers this Winter, thanks to my creative thinking customers who are always looking for a new look! From food to people to dogs, we got it covered!

This Summer’s Vail Valley Magazine believed to be “Best Yet”


Well, how could you go wrong with Mikaela Shiffrin, Olympic Gold Medalist on the cover! Not only a great story about her, but stories about Beekeeping, Cowboys, a French Country Home, Mountain Biking and Mushroom Hunting make it a fabulous read. Oh, did I mention most of the photography is by Brent Bingham; editorial as well as ads.

Check it out!

We had the pleasure  and honor to photograph them for the holiday issue of the Vail Beaver Creek Magazine.  Not only that, we shot Mikaela for the Vail Lifestyle’s Sochi Magazine and her U.S Ski Team car decal in Europe and caught her signing autographs during the World Cup ski race here in Vail. You go girls!!

Well, this shoot was a little different than the usual. We were at the Vail Symposium’s “SPIN” Ping Pong Event shooting for the Vail Valley Magazine and while we were able to shoot Susan Sarandon with the founder of SPIN and the amateur players, we had to wait a bit for the professional player to show. Boy, were we glad we did. He was full of life and ready to put on a show. This was the most fun I had shooting in a long time!
