Last spring I took a short backpacking trip with some people I had met during my time as a commercial photography student. We went to one of my favorite places on the Olympic Penisula, the South Coast Trail. I brought one of my classmates and her husband to be my models and two other students from the program as photography assistants. It was a successful shoot producing multiple lifestyle images that I used both in my printed portfolio and on the outdoor adventure gallery on my website. One of my assistants, Chris Powell ( http://www.chrispow.co ), produced a BTS video as well as some wonderful BTS stills that I wanted to share. Big thanks to my other assistant Daniel Silverberg as well as the models Nelle and Tim Clark.
