Hurricane Bill Photo

Hurricane Bill pushed a large and powerful swell into the shores of the northeastern US and Canada last weekend. Here’s an image we captured on Sunday morning off the coast of Massachusetts, just after sunrise. The crest and face of this wave stood a solid 12-14′ tall before breaking in its final approach to the shore. The wild winds and seas kept us watching in awe for a few hours before conditions settled down and invited us back into the waves, to surf.

This image will also be available as a fine art print, entitled, “Offshore Winds”. Drop us a line if you are interested.


Round Barn Show – Our Photographs on Canvas

For a few years now, we’ve been working with Lightworks in Burlington, VT to produce large-format (36 to 72″ wide!) canvas prints of our photographs. After we receive the canvas prints from the lab, we stretch the canvas around simple wooden frames, and we coat the canvas prints with a sealer that helps to ensure a durable, long-lasting image.

You can find some of these prints at Artisan’s Hand gallery in Montpelier, VT; in the lobby to Timber’s Restaurant at Sugarbush Resort, in many private collections…and coming this August 3 – September 6, 2009, at the 20th Annual Photography Exhibit at the Round Barn in Waitsfield, Vermont – part of the Mad River Valley’s 2009 Vermont Festival of the Arts.

Stop by the Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT sometime before Sept 6 to take a peek at our canvas prints, as well as the work of dozens of other photographers from our region. For more info about our fine-art prints and print pricing, go to this link on our website.

Here’s a quick snap of the prints we are showing at the Round Barn, waiting to be hung in the old milking parlour at the Round Barn.

Wild People, Wild Places Opens in Downtown Bristol, VT

Photographic Exhibit Promotes Human-Powered Adventure, Wild Places

Bristol, VT – Moretown, VT based photographers Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson, regular contributors to the outdoor media – including Vermont Life, Skiing and Backcountry magazines – will bring their Wild People, Wild Places exhibit to the Bristol Bakery & Café in downtown Bristol, VT this July 13 through August 13, 2009. The exhibit more than twenty color and black & white images captured by the couple while adventuring on foot, skis, by bicycle and canoe – close to home here in Vermont and as far away as the southern Andes or the high Arctic.

“It is our hope that our images inspire others to enjoy and to help protect our state’s and our planet’s most amazing places,” says Mohr. “Reducing our energy and material consumption, buying locally, and supporting land and water conservation projects are just a few of the things we can do to ensure that our great, great grandkids can enjoy the kind of outdoor experiences we are lucky enough to have today.”

Adorning the main brick wall of the Bristol Bakery & Café from July 13 – Aug 13, 2009, the exhibit will be free and open to the public during the café’s normal business hours: Monday through Friday 6:30am – 3pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays 7:30am – 3pm. All photographs will be for sale, and 1% of all proceeds will be donated to conservation efforts here in Vermont.

Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson are co-owners of Ember Photography. They specialize in capturing striking outdoor images for a variety of editorial, non-profit and commercial clients, while taking on numerous wedding portrait and fine-art shoots.  This latest exhibit is part of the ever-evolving Wild People, Wild Places project – a series of fine art exhibits and multi-media slideshows launched in 2005 – dedicated to the enjoyment and protection of wild places.  For more information, go to www.emberphoto.com.


Winter…and our new Cards…are here!
