Denver Photographer Shoots March Snow

It’s not every day I get to go out shooting at dawn with my favorite Denver Photographer. Levi, Sophia and I had a blast creating these images around Denver.

(Wait, if you’re reading this article on a phone and have access to a desktop computer, you’ll enjoy the photography better if you switch. Thanks!)

Some of these images we call Denver commercial photography because they really do advertise our town as a great city. Others are fine art photographs, especially the ones by Sophia and Levi. But they all can be called Denver editorial photography because we’re out to tell the story. Publishing works by my son and sweetheart has been fun for me. So look for watermarks to see the works of Levi and Sophia.

Denver commercial advertising photography features the city in it’s best light. Colorado natives who grew up in Denver commented about this image posted on facebook with fondness and nostalgia.


Getting up before dawn always bodes well for photography. And heading out to a city with nearly two feet of freshly fallen snow made for a lovely mini adventure. The city had plowed main arteries but simultaneously created plow ridges from side streets main roads. Before there was light in the sky, we got stuck in one of those massive piles of condensed snow and ice. But with a little perserverence and a 4x Subie, we arrived at our first destination in time for the morning sun glow to light downtown. And what made the scene so spectacular was the deep blue shadows in fields of white snow.
Shooting with other photographers is always eye opening. And capturing jaw dropping imagery with Sophia and Levi made for a very special morning. No matter what the subject, artists of all sorts will find unique ways to tell the same story. Maybe because each of us uses a different perspective and a unique set of past experiences to see and to create. As the sun rose higher in the sky, we found ourselves in downtown Denver. Our options for walking were curtailed by the deep snows and giant drifts. But each of us found shots unique from the others. Yet we all captured images of Denver city landmarks, piles of snow and blue sky

The Business of Photography
Like other businesses, a Denver photographer in business has taken a hit during the pandemic. Commisions and even new inquiries are scarce while budgets remain tight. So a personal project, like this is valuable for many reasons. Mostly, it was fun!
Search engines rank businesses based on diverse criteria. They don’t know which Denver photographers are the good or the mediocre. So they use complicated algorithms to make assesments. Unfortunately, Google and the others don’t seem to notice longevity in business. But one of the big factores is getting plenty of five star reviews. And that’s something I’ve been shy to request from my clients and others who know my work.

My cohorts of creative image making, Sophia Floyd and Levi DeCroce. Although Levi started the day’s photoshoot using his phone, he later used the Nikon 750 with a 35mm lens.

We wrapped up the moring photoshoot and headed back to our homes to find the elves had forgotten to shovel our walks and driveways. And when that was done, Sophia created a lovely meal before we found our beds and napped.
