Pagan Portrait

I was assigned to make a portrait of two pagans at their pagan accessory shop in Salt Lake City. I expected it to be dark, moody, maybe cave-like... it obviously wasn't. I don't use artificial lighting a lot, but for this one, I brought out the light kit from the office for the first time. I think that portraits are my weak least they are the assignments I stress out over the most, but I am getting tons of opportunities here to work on them, and I think I'm getting better.

3D Painter

Los Angeles based artist Maritza Torres poses in front of her painting "Jaguar Woman" Tuesday April 19, 2011 at Mestizo's Institute of Culture and Arts Gallery in Salt Lake City. Her work is being featured in an exhibit called "La Azteca" and "La Curandera" that also features the work of painter Tracy Villa Correa. Torres was born in Salt Lake City. Several of her paintings were designed to be viewed with 3-D glasses.

Bison Management

One of the great things about interning at The Salt Lake Tribune is that they actually have a budget to send photographers and reporters on assignments outside of the typical coverage zone. In March I was fortunate to be assigned to travel to the northern part of Yellowstone National Park to work on a story about bison management in the small town of Gardiner, Montana. Here are some of my favorite photos, and here is a link to the article by Brandon Loomis.
