Interview with The Still Tide – Getting Ready For Red Bull Sound Select

Feature photo by George L. Blosser

As Denver’s music scene continues to grow, it’s always a pleasure to chat with people you have admired but never got a chance to meet. Case in point is Anna Morsett, who I did actually see and photograph when her band, The Still Tide, played at Treefort this year – but we didn’t really meet-meet. This week, we ended up hanging out on the phone for over an hour, and having quite a few laughs while I was supposed to be interviewing her about their upcoming appearance at a Red Bull Sound Select show.

Red Bull Sound Select

Have you heard about this program? They are in 18 cities with over 200 shows a year and highlight new music with the help of local curators. Tickets are discounted to support both the artist and the fans – RSVP here for Margaret Glaspy, Pearl Charles and The Still Tide at The Bluebird on October 20th.

Photos from Denver Zombie Crawl 2017: Blood and Clowns

Denver Zombie Crawl returned to the Mile High City with a vengeance this year. Sure, since the date for the event was a bit earlier than normal there was perhaps a bit lighter attendance (not much), but our Colorado undead were no less enthusiastic. In fact, I would say the commitment to blood was over the top in 2017.

Not surprisingly, the costume we saw the most often was CLOWNS … and given my great fear of them, I hid behind my camera all day. Besides the clowns, I love how Zombie Crawls brings all the Denverites out. It’s such a diverse event that you can adapt for yourself. We go with our best friends and the kids, but later in the night head out adults-only for the after-parties.

It’s an awesome Colorado event that has something for everyone. Continue reading…

So Much Love: Amy + Nick Wedding Photos

I don’t often photograph weddings but when I do – it’s the most fun when it’s friends. Nick and Amy are half of a fantastic band in Fort Collins named Post Paradise and we have been going to their shows for years. I was honored to capture their special day – and what clearly is a special relationship between them, their family and friends.

Tulum Mexico Hotel – La Zebra: Luxury in the Heat

I just returned from Mexico and it’s exactly what I needed. Rest, relaxation, sun, great food, drink and, most importantly, friends.

The lovely Andrea was about to turn 40 years old and had a terrific idea. “How about I gather as many gals as possible from around the world to a beautiful beach?” I had been to Tulum several times before and it’s one of my favorite places in the world – and Andrea is one of my favorite people in the world – so, of course, the answer was a resounding yes.

Lucky for us, Andrea did the legwork for the trip and found our hotel in Mexico and took care of the logistics. We stayed at the gorgeous La Zebra, about 20 minutes from the ruins. It’s a small luxury hotel and restaurant right on the beach, where rooms have splash pools and beautiful views. (I spent most of the day alternating between the pool and the ocean … my idea of heaven.) Continue reading…

Dear Mom

First of all, happy birthday! Normally at this time, we would be sleepily gathering around the speaker phone to call and sing as off-key to you as possible.

Secondly, we miss you.

It’s been a rough seven months since you passed, both for our family and for the world. I think I only have just started the process of grieving you because there’ve been so many other things to go through along the way. If I am being honest, I have had some anger because of the way your affairs were left and the messes I have had to clean up, but I understand that it was difficult for you to do anything differently. I also feel incredibly lucky to be able to put work on hold while I handle things.

But mostly, we just miss you. Continue reading…
