National Geographic – Innovators Project – Nick Watson: Bringing the Wilderness Solution to Vets

February 2, 2015 by Caroline

Last Spring, I shot a story, written by Mark Jenkins, for National Geographic online. The story is about Nick Watson, c0-founder of Veterans Expeditions, who was voted National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year in 2014. Watson spearheads the group, which teaches vets technical wilderness skills while building powerful community.

The goal of this two-day trip, was to get young vets prepped for an upcoming attempt on Denali. The first day the team focused on technical rope and rescue skills. The second day, we attempted to summit Mt. Sherman. Sadly, we  had to turn around about 300 m. from the top due to weather. But the trip was a blast! At the end, I felt welcomed into this group of incredible individuals, even though I’m not a veteran. Trying hard in the mountains, in tough conditions, can break down all sorts of barriers. I love that!

As usual, Mark’s story is not to be missed! Please check it out! Good stuff. More photos here.

Mirinda Carfrae, New Balance athlete and Ironman world champion.

This past fall, I was honored to photograph Mirinda Carfrae, the current Ironman Triathlon world champion, for New Balance. Carfrae, from Brisbane, Australia, holds the Ironman Championship course record at Kona, Hawaii (8:52:14, 2013). Just one of the impressive wins on her resume.

Lisa Hughes - Mean Girls

Aug. 14, 2015 – Lisa Hughes teaches a class she came up with called Mean Girls, at Colorado College, Colorado.

I recently shot and contributed reporting to an article for the New York Post about a class called Mean Girls, at Colorado College. The class is taught by English professor Lisa Hughes, who came up with the idea. Hughes examines the dynamic between women by exploring modern renditions of the classics in Tina Fey’s Mean Girls. Apparently mean girls have been around forever :)

Aug. 15, 2014 – Sunrise at the Leadville 100, Leadville, Colorado.

This past August Matt Trappe asked me to shoot the Leadville 100 with him for New Balance. I love shooting big trail races. You stake out a pretty spot. Fire away when the runners come by. Scurry to the next spot on the course. Repeat.

Climbers Against Cancer 2014 Calendar

January 26, 2015 by Caroline

You loved it, hated it or missed it. When CAC approached me to shoot the 2014 calendar, I had no idea it would be so controversial. One morning, I woke up to over 400 Facebook posts about the calendar, mostly negative. All publicity is good publicity, right?

Bosque del Apache

January 26, 2015 by Caroline

I always assumed I lacked the patience to be a wildlife photographer. But I wanted to find out. The Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge, a few miles off the highway, near Socorro, New Mexico, was the place.

For an introvert like me, non-stop travel and people can be exhausting. After months of plane-hopping in Europe, I craved the desert. And I wanted to drive there.

Everything I needed was in my truck: water, food, camera gear, a sleeping bag. I relished the freedom. It felt so American. Here are some photos from the Bosque!
