This is the first post from an ongoing sereis that will highlight various galleries within my personal stock photography archive. The archive serves to provide searchable, client friendly access to editors and art directors worldwide, while also serving as a robust website, with easy to use image download and print purchase features. Not a bad website platform either- mouse over features and a built in slideshow make it an enjoyable photography site!
Ranch Life began as an assignment while attending the Photography at the Summit workshop in 2006 held in Jackson, Wyoming. The program is hailed as one of the most valuable and productive workshops in North America, drawing top level instruction from photographers and editors of National Geographic, Time, and American Photo.
My personal focus was an ongoing essay on cowboy culture and the life of modern ranchers in Teton County. I quickly made connections with a third generation ranching family as I developed the photographic essay. The Mead family has since welcomed me back on numerous occasions to continue my work in the valley.
Please follow the live links above to see the full photographic essay and license images from Fedora Photo.
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated as I continue to improve the design and content of this site.

These photographs were taken on a working ranch in Jackson, Wyoming as part of a week long assignment to document aspects of local culture. As a participant in the Summit Workshop I worked closely with world renowned photojournalist and magazine editors to edit, explore and further expand on my own skills as a photographer and journalist.
