>Hoover Dam: 75 Years

>

Over the summer I  had the opportunity to work with videographer/photographer Terry Lownethal on a video about the 75th anniversary of the Hoover Dam.  I got to climb around all the different areas of the dam and through its hand carved tunnels. The bottom of the dam has a spot where you have to watch your head because people will drop change on you from over 720 feet. The temperature also hovered around 118 degrees for the entire time we were there.  http://www.bechtel.com/hoover_dam.html

Zappos.com is one of the few promising businesses in Las Vegas that doesn’t directly relate to gaming. Here are some photos I recently did of Tony Hsieh, CEO of retailer Zappos.com and author the new book ‘Delivering Happiness,’ for the UK based magazine ‘The Royal Mail.’

I recently had the opportunity to shoot a bunch of Las Vegas’ wine hotspots for AirTran’s Go Magazine. I tasted classic bottles of wine from the 1930’s and even got to ride the pulley system in the four story high wine cellar at Aureole.

>60+ Carat Yellow Diamond

>When I was first given this monster diamond ring to photograph my first thought was to run. What are the odds of me ever being able to plunk down a little under $10 million for this thing. The raw diamond weighed several hundred carats and took over a year to cut.
