An Inside Interview on ROCK Photos with Deadpoint Magazine

DPM-Cover-SmallHey all, just returned from Hawaii to discover my interview with Mike Williams of Deadpoint Magazine, or DPM. This issue covers some great climbers (Ashima and Jimmy Webb), as well as four glorious double spreads of my photos from the ROCK series.

If you want a great inside look at how those images were made and don’t mind me rambling about artistic vision, then take a look inside! I talk about technical ability vs vision, production, and compositing adventure images. Oh, and you must excuse the Papyrus font– like adventure, sometimes it just happens.

Interviewed by Shoot for Thrill Podcast

Shoot for Thrill
Last month I was interviewed by Chris Smith (@theecjsmith), Founder & Host of the Shoot For Thrill Podcast. The podcast is one of the top podcast in iTunes and focuses on successful photographers that are at the top of their craft who desire to spur on inspiration and action in others. There are some great interviews with some fantastic shooters on there, such as Joel Grimes and Delphine Diallo, definitely worth listening to.During our podcast we talked about my personal background as a developing photographer, the path to inspiration through personal work, the need to assist, and the business side of commercial photography.

In the interview Chris drew out of me not only my story, but also some struggles I went through, successes I found, and we even talked about some of the gear I use. I would love for you to hear the story of my journey. Take a listen below and let me know what you think. http://shootforthrill.com/kiliiifish

Gear and Photo Prep: Deep in the Mountains in Winter

131125-ENCHANT-1000

Hey friends, it’s been a intense few days! My assistant Dalton and I were up at 8500 ft in the Enchantment Lakes shooting a new campaign about wilderness survival. More on that later, but I thought I’d share with you some of the gear preparations it takes to go up and shoot at elevation in the mountains in the winter. Shooting up there can be really challenging but the landscapes are truly mind-blowing and the mountain goats unbelievably persistent. Makes me miss my days running survival courses in Oregon. So what did we pack and how the hell did we get our packs down to 35lbs each while carrying all our camera gear and delicious food?  Continue reading
