Typical, too typical

Sundance Skippy... Apparently, Skippy goes to the Sundance Film Festival every year and takes pictures of himself next to celebrities... To each their own. Here's the quick portrait I took before the showing of a documentary on him. Here's the trailer.

Food and Care Coalition

For my monthly picture story I photographed at a new facility in Provo that provides services for the homeless and underprivileged. I was intrigued because of the unique way it requires the clients to work for their services (dental visits, hair cuts, etc.) The story can be found here.

Here's a shot I dug up recently of a friend riding a skatepark in Heber, Utah. I like it because it reminds me of the good people and good sessions I met right after arriving in Utah. It's kind of a bummer that snow has blanketed these parks and I probably won't get to ride them in a while. However, I am hell bent on getting a photo that comes close to visually showing how epic the snowboarding is here. If you've skied Utah, you know that's no easy task.
