It does not happen very often for me to be featured while working, but that is the luxury of having assistant. LULU’s Barking BBQ is a private fundraising event in Castle Pines where each year a 100% of the proceeds, and I mean 100% of it benefit our four legged friends. In this photo I’m seen photographing the famous Perini Ranch buffalo gap steak, with John Montgomery of Wild West Beef Sticks who’s just sliced it and is getting ready to arrange it on the plate. This is the real deal Cowboy food that is often catered at the White House, yup! and many have flown to Texas just to have this stuff, so if you are ever near Buffalo Gap Texas you got to stop by.
You may have seen me recently on-locations around Carbon Valley in Dacono Colorado, during the National Night Out with movie night at the park and Carbon Valley Music Festival. I have been very fortunate to get hired by local designer Traci Jones @ Studio Six Branding out of Longmont to create identity defining photography for the city of Dacono.
Traci has this amazing ability to put together the best team and they are really well coordinated with clear direction of where we’re going. In the above photo I was caught directing our young models who have just arrived on the set.
I noticed quite a few of my friends and customers picking up photography as a hobby and even profession and there is a good reason for that; There is a photographer hidden in many of us. If you ended up with a digital SLR this Christmas and need the know how; below is a list of extremely helpful sites to get you started. There is also a list of few exceptional photographers who inspire me.
Thank you all who hired me this year, it’s been truly a wonderful experience getting to know you and sharing photography with you. This relationship enables me to take care of my family and for the first time in 15 years allowed me to take a trip to Poland and see my godmother, my cousins and grandma. It was an unforgettable experience, so much time has passed between now and then that I did not image I would ever see them again. Much appreciated.
It’s been over a year since I decided to give up on a printing company pictage which was based out of California. I made a switch to shootproof for a number of reasons; the main reason is that shootproof uses 3 print labs and one of them PRO DPI is based here in Denver. This is a huge + because it means that your prints arrive with in a day or two from the time you order; when I order pro quality I have them in hand the next day. Let’s not confuse PRO DPI with your general available to everyone printing services which are sloppy and don’t offer professional grade printing papers. PRO DPI‘s quality, color, sharpness, longevity and consistency is unmatched and Colorado local. Please ask me about professional print prices; and No they are not ridiculously overpriced.
Pictures above showcase the print wrap CD case which you may receive as part of your wedding package.
One thing about photographers is that there are many of us out there, but there is not one out there like Scott.
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Scott Houck, he’s my favorite local photographer in Denver. If you have ever hired Walder Photography to cover your event, there is a good chance Scott was there. Scott and I we go way back, we both learn and push each other to success, he’s an educator and an amazing portrait photographer. One thing that bothers me about him is that he does not show much of his amazing work and he does not shoot enough with me. If you are ever looking for a dream team to cover your event or corporate portraits don’t hesitate to contact us, we’ll make you look great.
Back in 2000 I had a pleasure to work on a one of a kind project which would help people with disabilities get around Winter Park and Pepsi Center. The primary objective was to develop a virtual reality tour which included 360 degree panoramas of the entire Winter Park and Pepsi Center inside out. My job was to manage, capture and to process all of the photography necessary for the project.
Today I decided to resurrect a few of the nicer panoramas that were captured. These panos are corrected and processed except for the final stitching which would result in a 360 QTVR pano. The camera that was used to capture this was called the panoscan which worked like a scanner on a tripod which would turn 360 degree to capture the entire image.

For 11 consecutive years, Pat Miller, Denver’s Gabby Gourmet, has hosted Give Paws event, a fabulous dining experience featuring unique gourmet dishes prepared by Denver’s top chefs with proceeds from the event benefit the homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League. It’s a privilege to have been invited to document this event and here are a few of my favorite photos.
I got started taking people portraits in 1998 when I took a portrait class at Metro State College in Denver. Back then I was scared of people and here is a short photo journey that shows how I got started taking portraits and learned to work with people.
When I take portraits of parents and their kids I often imagine what type of pictures I would like to have with my kids. In this picture I asked for a monster hug because kids love to give their parents monster hugs and it worked for the dad as well. Most often it’s the expression after the monster hug is what makes a nice portrait, that’s why I usually take a series of photos so that I can select the most favorite expression.
This kid is really going to love this portrait when he grows up.
