- A self portrait this time (family self portrait that is). Again, I put this in that FACETIME chapbook as well. I shot a project in my hometown of #PrinceRupert #BritishColumbia a few years back. My grandfather (who sadly passed away this year) had run a boat shed for building and repairing ships from the commercial shipping fleet there. His work and life touched a great many people in the area and I wanted to capture this moment of the three generations. This image is actually a heavily composited shot and is probably made of 8 different images (all shot in the same scene). This is a common approach to group shots as it's nearly impossible to capture the peak emotion you're seeking from all subjects at the same time. Many thanks to my family for agreeing to being put through this process, dragging all he props down the highway to this location, and putting up with my precise demands. footnote: I also shot a whole series of landscapes and still life images capturing the history of the boat shed and the culture around it.

- Another FACETIME chapbook photo here. My photographer friend Christina wanted to get a new portrait for her business profile. Photographers are great subjects but they tend to be more open to an editorial streak in their image. I told Christina I would shoot it if she let me force her to model (which is to say, trick her into the position and mood I wanted to see her in). I wanted to show the mania of her creative mind, so I engaged her conversationally more than I might with another subject. I love how this shot makes her feel alive and human and emotionally accessible. Shot in the cramped apartment I lived in during my time in souther #Florida (further cramped with studio lighting...)

- A more traditional #portrait if you will - still in the archives of the FACETIME chapbook with this one. Howie Richardson, climber, guidebook author, PhD (I think he'd like the accolades in that order). Photographed on assignment for @grippedmagazine in his home in the #Okanagan #BritishColumbia. Howie is harry, handsome, weathered and joyous. This is basically the easiest portrait shoot of my life...other than that I jammed both of us, a studio lighting setup and a backdrop into a claustrophobically narrow hallway to get this... I wanted to really highlight how wild Howie's hair was (including his super unibrow) so I shot him against the black backdrop to get the contrast necessary to really grab the detail of every manic strand of hair.

- More FACETIME chapbook #portrait action here. Jesus Romo, one of my favorite models to cast for running shoots (and occasionally some fashion) during a #running #lifestyle shoot on #MtTam just outside #SanFrancisco. I like to see portraiture like this where the lines between lifestyle, action, and portrait are blended. You can show a lot of a person by putting them in their element (though Jesus would disagree that this is "his" element as he's actually a professional track runner...not #trailrunner). #portraitmood #sportsportraits

- One of my true passions in photography is portraiture. I've always been obsessed with the process of unlocking an individual's story through a portrait. Sometimes the simple, monotone backdrop is the key to revealing something in a person's face, other times the scene in which they're composed helps tell the story. The great masters of portraiture like #Avedon or #leibovitz all have their own process, whether they elicit something from the subject or simply demand it by their presence. My journey with photography and portraiture in particular is an ongoing search for process and voice though each individual and each job demands something a little different and so I'm always pulled one way or another. I'm going to post some portraits over the next few days, mostly from a chapbook I published last year called FACETIME. I hope you enjoy the work :) Brian Smith, USGS employee, wildlife photographer, exhausted at 4am from an all night field job corralling sea turtles in Alabama.

- 10 year ago I met this piece of work (@dan.holz) - each of us at the beginning of our photography careers. Time and space took us in different directions, developing very different but complimentary styles ... then we somehow crashed back together. Today as I am still recovering from the jet lag of my last assignment with him for @ospreypacks , I find myself yet again aboard the #Sonoma to #SFO shuttle. This time we’re headed into the sticks outside #Boise #Idaho for a dreamy #documentary gig with @charles_post in the mix. Looking forward to meeting @cuttlebone and @ornithologi later today as well! Missing @autumn_ives in the meantime.

- New frontiers. This is part 2 of the #mountainbike lifestyle shoot - the destination. Many fun images to come from this side of the story. I'm not a huge consumer of #cannabis but I am interested in the rebranding of its culture. We played with mixing into these lifestyle shoots in place of the classic aprés piste of alcohol. Well, ok, we had beer, too :) #hike #getoutside #photographer #lifestyle #pack #california #girlpower #relaxitslegal @the420force @alocknessmonster @lucky420promos @kitsbow @hinterland_empire
