Many of my photos are taken here in western Montana, but also around the world. I love being outdoors. I hike, bike, fish, hunt, ski and ALWAYS take photos. As much time as I spend outdoors, one needs to eat. You might see photos of food on these treks as I explore the sights, flora and fauna. I use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark III (with a few lenses and tripods) and shoot in RAW. I process my photos into JPG with Adobe Lightroom with as few adjustments as possible.
Bitterroot Bluegrass Festival 2007 - Friday night
Pinegrass is a Missoula based bluegrass band. Members are John Joyner on fiddle, Chad Fadely on mandolin, Bill Neaves, guitar and vocals, Rick Ryan, bass and vocals, Jack Mauer on banjo and dobro. See below for individual bio's. For more information, email band member, Chad Fadely. "PINEGRASS" (scientific name: Calamagrostis Rubescens) has been playing weekly since 1988. The exact date of birth is a matter of debate, but suffice it to say, they've been playing together a pretty long time. Pinegrass has always been a democratic enterprise; each individual having the privilege and responsibility to take their turn choosing the songs and tunes that are presented at each outing. The over-all sound of the band is a result of the individual influences and passions of each player. The common denominator for all Pinegrass members is to play each number with feeling - they strive to play good tunes, the way they're "supposed" to be played. You will hear traditional Bluegrass played "true" to the original (mostly), and a bit of swing, Dylan and whatever else strikes the fancy of the band-mates at the moment.Read More
