South Dakota

This summer I went to South Dakota for vacation. Most people would think this to be a drag and the last place they would choose to go. For me it was an easy decision to go. It was our 80th family reunion and a chance to spend time with family I don’t get to see often. While I was there I got lucky and found a few great spots for some pictures while we were playing with shotguns, tractors, and endless amounts of food. South Dakota has more to offer than you think!

Outlaws of Dirt at Frisco, CO

I had the opportunity to shoot both Outlaws of Dirt contests that happened in Colorado in the last 3 months. It was great seeing the talent that came out to compete and gave me an incredible chance to shoot the best dirt jumpers in the world. Thank you to Mikes Camera and the Outlaws of Dirt for putting on such a great event. I also want to thank everyone who voted for me along the way and helped me win 3rd place in each of the photo contests. I am honored to be a part of this family and also win my first contests as a photographer. Thank you all! HereĀ are all the shots from the event.
