Icon is a brand I’ve admired and respected for years. They are the pinnacle of the custom car world. Being a huge vintage car guy who likes to use his stuff, Jonathan’s work has always spoken to me. In a quest to respect the integrity of the original designers who gave us icons such as the FJ and Bronco, Jonathan and his team update vehicles with hidden technology to maintain the original look. To me that’s as cool as it gets. Needless to say when Jonathan called me to collaborate on a shoot, I jumped on the opportunity. The whole shoot was an adventure of a lifetime and I’m now an even bigger fan of the brand.
Icon is a brand that sticks to their vision and is not swayed by industry pressure or trends, and that really resonates with me.
In an effort to help preserve the beauty we saw on this trip we will be releasing a limited edition print from our adventure and $100 from each sale will go to the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign.

Dallas has alway been a very special city to me. It was a late night conversation after shooting a rodeo in Mesquite TX that inspired me to go off and shoot wild horses. Ive been back to Dallas countless times since then, always trying to find a gallery that was a perfect fit for my series.
Cinq is a fine art gallery with a great aesthetic matched with an ambitious and knowledgable staff. I hope this is the start of a long association with a great gallery in the heart of the Dallas Design District.
I am delighted to announce that Tamron lenses has chosen me to be an ambassador of their brand.
I have used Tamron lenses for most of my career, and they have been a huge part in helping me capture the moments I have. The brand's aesthetics and optics just keep getting better and better.
There's nothing about my career that has been conventional. I remember setting out on the road years ago to shoot rodeos with no idea of what I even wanted to do with the pictures. I just has this desire to get out and "shoot". I knew I needed a good zoom and after much research I decided the Tamron 70-200 was the lens to go with. I still carry that lens in my camera bag everyday. It was after that series that things started to change for me. Most of my wild horse and orca shots were taken with that lens.
Photography continues to method of redemption and escapism for me, and to be working with the brand that helped start it all for me is truly and honor.
Check out the shots from a recent shoot using the new 150-600.

We are excited to announce our first solo show at Canvas in Malibu. "Wild" is a retrospective of American Wild Mustangs and Bucking Broncos.
One of the last known photographs of the remarkable Orca "Granny''. Granny (born c. 1911, presumed dead between October–December 2016), also known as J2, was an orca (killer whale). She was estimated by some whale researchers to have been 105 years old, but her age is a source of dispute, with other studies putting her at age 65-80. If she was 105, she would have been the oldest known orca at the time of her death. A member of the endangered southern resident killer whale population, Granny lived in the northeast Pacific Ocean and coastal bays of Washington state and British Columbia. Granny was estimated to have been born in 1911. She was last seen on October 12, 2016, and was considered deceased by The Center for Whale Research in January 2017
