The Main Payette

This summer, my son got a job as a river guide for Cascade Raft and Kayak.  He basically lives out of his tent at the company campground and has the Boise National Forest as his playground.  This past weekend, he took his sister and a friend for a trip down the Main Payette.  So decided to drive up to Banks to document the historical event.  I bopped from rapid to rapid, driving like a crazed mother and obsessed photographer to get the next location before the raft did.  Here are a few shots from my endeavor..  Couldn't be prouder of my boy!!

CONFESSION: I was so excited that I ended up messing up the white balance setting on my camera and most of the photos turned out with a blue color cast.  Thank god for Lightroom!

Lost and then Found..ers

I was lucky enough to shoot a home in the new subdivision, Legacy, in Eagle Idaho.  This  was a 4725 square foot home on West Founders Way.  Holy Smokes, it was big, but I had a lot of fun shooting it.  The interior was a bit tricky because of the heavy architecture, cove ceilings, HUGE windows and dark wood.  But I always love a good challenge and was very pleased with the outcome!  Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.  WOOT!

Retrospective - Marsing, ID

After a shoot in lovely downtown Marsing, Idaho - I decided to take in the countryside, which is chock full of orchards, wineries, and dairy farms.  I was in a bit of a retrospective mood, and the photos I ended up taking reminded me of olden times. 

I created these using Photoshop CC and a series of layers to create a 19th Century look and feel... 

Settlers Way

A lot of my shoots are in, what I would call, the far reaches.  I get to travel to distant lands (well sort of, but not really, but it sounds good!) to photograph houses -- in hopes of helping the owner/agent to sell their house.

I was fortunate enough to travel north on Hwy 21 to Idaho City to shoot this'middle of nowhere' house that was just an excellent road trip. 

My assignment was to shoot the exterior shots, while my boss, Tony -- the Wizographer of Middle Earth, shot the interior.  

An exceptional home, in the middle of Nowhere!

How lucky am I?
