Melissa and I were elated to photograph three local writers for the February issue of Northern Arizona’s Mountain Living Magazine. We got the pleasure of meeting and photographing author Elias Butler, poet Ann Walka and adventurer Tyler Williams. All three writers were asked to bring in artifacts that described themselves and their writing so we could add a personal touch to their studio portraits. I always enjoy getting to know new people and learn about their life and passions. It was so much fun photographing these three, they made our job easy to do! ~Kristen
Elias butler who graced the cover of the magazine, brought his four legged companion, Finn. Elias told us that Finn goes on most of his travels and hikes that add to his writing and landscape photography.
Ann Walka is so sweet, she really brought a smile to our faces! Ann is a Flagstaff local poet photographed wither her favorite journal that is always by her side.
Tyler Williams writes guidebooks for Cayoneering and Paddling so he brought lots of fun props! Tyler told us that his red down coat had been on many adventures with him, we couldn’t tell:)
