Hayley in Yosemite ~ Lifestyle Photography

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009 at 8:42pm - Lifestyle

I had an amazing opportunity to shoot some creative lifestyle portraits with my friend Hayley when I went to Yosemite this past weekend.  Hayley is a dear friend I met in Tuolumne Meadows five years ago when we were both working there for the summer.  We´ve remained great friends throughout the years, and get to see each other maybe once or twice a year.  I treasure these times.  I´ve met most of my best friends over the years in Tuolumne and Yosemite, as its such a magical place and draws such special people.

We had a blast, and went up to the Devils Bath Tubs which made for a really dramatic location.  Couple that with Hayley´s natural beauty and you have the ingredients for a killer session!!

Thanks so much Hayley, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

New Yoga Gallery ~ Lifestyle Photography

Monday, March 9th, 2009 at 7:56pm - Lifestyle

I just added a new Yoga Gallery up above from some of my favorite yoga shots from over the years.  Its such an humbling experience to try and capture the beauty and elegance of the human body juxtaposed with nature.  Its so organic.  I feel like nature is a grand representation of the balance inherent in the universe, and in yoga we seek to find that balance in our own selves and lives, so the synergy of yoga in nature has always fascinated me.

Its been so much fun going through old work while I´ve been preparing the galleries for my new blogsite.  I love how the galleries go full screen, it really brings the images to life.  So I´ve been going through all my old work and even re processing images to be included. 

All the images in the galleries above and all personal work blog posts are now available on my shopping cart site as Art Prints and Digital Downloads, and so I´ve put extra care to make sure all the images are for optimized and looking their best.  If you´d like to help support this artist and give yourself the present of a beautiful new art print, please do.  I would greatly appreciate it!

Hope you´re having a wonderful day.

Kevin Maddrey - Artist

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009 at 12:28am - Lifestyle

I just added a new Gallery up above, and wanted to add a special blog post to talk a little bit about the new Gallery.  Kevin Maddrey has been a dear friend of mine since I was 16 years old.  I met him through a friend I worked with, and our friendship quickly developed from there.

When I came out to Yosemite at 19, which kicked off 11 years of working summers in the park, Kevin was one of my first friends to come out and visit.  He also fell in love with Yosemite, and started his own annual journeys which increased in length over the years to where he now spends at least 3-5 months in the Yosemite area every year.

Kevin is one of the most talented, unique, and motivated people I know, let alone one of the most brilliant artists I´ve ever met, and dearest friends I´ve ever known.  His work and life is so inspirational on so many levels, and his art touches and inspires so many people.

I´ve had the amazing fortune to get to spend so much time with Kevin over the years.  We´ve shared amazing adventures together, beautiful life expereinces, endless slacklining sessions, summers in Tuolumne making art and roaming the land, mountain climbs and meadow sessions, Eastide life, as well as countless journeys into nature and life. 

Kevin paints, draws, sculpts, or finds some form of creative expression pretty much every single day.  He does a lot of this out in nature.  He´s always got his sketchpad or watercolors, or canvas, or something and I´ve always got my camera.  So naturally I´ve gotten to get some great shots of him in his element over the years.

I hope you enjoy these shots, and be sure to check out the Gallery above for more.  You can see more of Kevin´s work at his website.  You should check it out!!
