The Salmon Superhwy Initiative is one of the most impactful, inspiring projects on which I’ve worked. Beginning back in late 2013, I was asked by longtime friend and Trout Unlimited staff Alan Moore to consider an ambitious documentary that would serve as the creative platform for a nascent conservation initiative. Alan and I had brainstormed a lot of ideas while fishing together over the years, but this one really hit home for me. I did not hesitate to go all-in, committing to photographs and a short video to help launch the campaign. I had no idea that I would still today be working in support of this important effort, but I am grateful to be doing so.
Rather than attempt to outline the purpose, objectives and scope here with boring old words, I urge you to watch the campaign’s short video below. I filmed, edited and narrated this piece earlier this year: http://www.salmonsuperhwy.org/salmon-superhwy-video/
The campaign’s still photography work has been wide-ranging, from portraits to scenics to true documentary-style photojournalism. A selection from the most recent shoot can be seen HERE in the “New Work” section of the website; some additional content is located HERE in the “Conservation” section.
