The Real Meaning of Priceless


We had the amazing opportunity to visit Roundup River Ranch in Western Colorado for shooting a story for the Vail Valley Magazine. Roundup River Ranch is a real camp experience for children dealing with serious illnesses, allowing them to have all the traditional Summer camp adventures with the added assurance of medical, physical and emotional support.

With expert counselors, the kids do everything from a super challenging ropes course to arts & crafts, horseback riding & fishing.

One of the activities was an art session where campers could make worry dolls, to help them deal with their own uneasiness.

Parents and Campers alike can rest assured that proper medical care is available at all times while at the camp.

Being at the camp and seeing the joy in these kid’s faces was one of the best experiences we’ve had. A chance for them to set aside thinking about their illnesses and have the time of their lives makes Roundup River Ranch a priceless experience for all!

A Colorado Ranch Renovation


We had the honor of being able to photograph this project from start to end. Three years in the making, Pony UpRanch in Vail, Colorado transformed from a older ranch style property to a beautiful mountain contemporary design thanks to Architect Tom Cole http://www.tomcolearchitect.com Here is the final product after a relatively quick build considering the magnitude of it all.  Water features abound throughout the property.  The garage (or “pavilion”) has a rooftop deck. An elevator was built for guests that can’t handle the stairs. The “Sweat Shop” is a separate building for swimming & workouts with doors that completely open to the outside.  The existing horse arena was re-skinned and beetle-kill pine was used for the indoor arena.An atrium was added to enjoy some greenery in the Winter months. The cabin is situated high on the mountain & feels like a real getaway from it all.Along the creek was the perfect spot to build a tent for guests to camp out.What a fantastic experience for us to be able to photograph such an incredible property!

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:

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.
