Dirt Jumping From I-Street

Having just returned from Interbike in Vegas I thought it would be fitting to post a few shots from a recent shoot we did on some dirt jumps above the Capital building here in Salt Lake City, Utah known as I-street. We caught sunrise coming up over the Salt Lake Valley and shot both action and lifestyle with my good buddy and dirt jumper Craig Saunders. I haven't been on the dirt nearly enough this Summer, but it was excellent to get out for a little riding and shooting. Also, check out some prior published dirt rag mag shots on both the bobsled trail and i-street.The week prior I was down in Brianhead Utah shooting some of the most epic trails in Utah and definitely one of my favorite spots to ride. I'll be posting some of those images soon.

The priority list

What should you do next?

Is it better to email an existing customer, send a brochure to a prospect or improve your product a bit? Should you tweet or post a new blog post? Should you have a meeting to coordinate your team or spend ten minutes returning phone calls instead?

This is an unheralded skill, something successful people do really well and others struggle with.

How do you decide what to do next?

On the road: Hawaii, Kauai

Blogging from the road trip can be difficult, but finally discovered a little Wi-fi connection from my deck so here's a quick post from the beautiful island of Kauai (garden island). First time to this island and I'm it's my favorite at this point. Planning on returning on a non-work trip. During my first two days on the island and in between scouting my commercial locations, I snapped a few landscapes to go along with other hawaii landscapes from years past. Otherwise, I have barely had a chance to breathe with early mornings and late evenings doing commercial shoots. Luckily my bags arrived just in time to get started on the shoots (3 days late though!!!). I'll save those details for another post...
