I've always had a particularly paradoxical infatuation with the trophies that adorn the walls of the great camps and cabins of the Adirondacks. They are filled with stories. I am fascinated with these unstirring creatures, their eyes perpetually fixed on you as you explore the room. Perhaps it is their unintentional generosity; in no other world would I be allowed to fully investigate every minute detail of these beautiful beasts from a mere hair's length away.
So when Adirondack Life contacted me to see if I would like to shoot a feature on taxidermy in the Adirondacks, needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity. The whole project turned out to be an amazing experience. While on assignment, I was invited to spend the day with one of the most astonishing private collections I had ever experienced. It was like being locked up in the Natural History Museum overnight (but without Robin Williams sadly).
All-in-all, I am really glad I was offered the gig. I met so many fantastic people along the way. Some of whom have become fast friends.
