Welcome to Denver:

It has taken me forever to get a great shot of Denver. I was really unsure of how to show the city, the beauty, and the Rocky Mountains. After finding the right location to shoot….I waited all day and watched the lighting on Denver and the Rockies during the afternoon, night, sunset and sunrise. I have to say it was a tough choice. I asked a few friends which time of day to use the final shot and all of them said a different choice.

Branden is one hell of a sports model. Nothing is impossible and a real pleasure to work with. I rarely say anything, but he had to have been one of the greatest people I have ever worked with.

Here is a link to Branden’s website:
