In November I celebrated my eighth anniversary with the Daily Inter Lake. Traditionally, I create a “best of the year” blog, but this year I am preparing to show my work at the Hockaday Museum of Art which warrants review of my entire time with the Inter Lake.
The title of the show is set — "Magical: A Collection of Ordinary Miracles from Northwest Montana." All that remains is funding and reducing eight years worth of work to a collection of 50 photographs. Considering I usually select the top 200 at the end of a single year, this is a challenge.
However, with this goal in mind, I updated my portfolio with some of the news, features, landscape and sports photos over the years as well as three stories I had the privilege of covering.

One of my favorite aspects of working for a newspaper in this part of the country is that both residents and visitors have a deep love of the scenic wonders that fill and surround the Flathead Valley.
ATP — Behind the magic
The Alpine Theatre Project has long been known in the Flathead for the magic they create on stage. This is a behind the scenes look at a year in the life of the company and what goes into making those performances a reality.
Photos are from the 2014 season.
Note: These images were designed in black and white to contrast between the behind the scenes work and the colorful stage productions.
