Getting Married in the mountains of Colorado.

ShareIt’s beginning to look allot like Christmas in Crested Butte!  I often wonder why more couples don’t get married in Colorado in the Winter.  The wedding photography would be so special in the snow globe of the Rocky Mountains.  Granted it is also beautiful in the spring, summer and fall.  There are so many great […]

Hating on winter from Astillero.

Share It seems I picked a good winter to miss early season skiing in Colorado. While friends at home are dreaming of snow, but biking into the new year. I currently find myself floating around Nicaragua shooting for NGOs. I’m a big fan of one way ticket, no literary, travel and this trip is that. […]

The Townies of Crested Butte.

ShareThis project started one morning; when as I walked up to my trusty 1970‘s Schwinn bicycle.  I noticed the way the handlebars of two adjacent vintage bikes seemed to be holding each other in a loving embrace.  I wasn’t in a rush so I spent a few minutes observing as the light changed.  I came […]

Long Exposures with the Fuji X100.

ShareI have been pushing the limits of the Fuji X100 a bit lately. I find the sensor to be far superior to the similar pixel count sensor of the Nikon D300 which is a bit dated compared to the X100.  The X100 does especially well for long exposure images such as star trails or moonlight […]

How about a photo shoot over lunch?

Share      So you want to star in or make some pictures that don’t suck?  Meet me at high noon for the show down.  Ya? Photography is just time and light, real simple.  More time allows more light and the inverse right?  Well yes, but then there is the quality of the light.   […]

Shooting the 2011 24 Hour Mountain Bike Nationals.

ShareWhen I heard the course for the 2011 24 Hour mountain bike nationals was moved to a city park.  I thought to myself; ”This better not be a lap in the grass around the playground”.  I mean shooting bikes in a playground could be really cool, but probably not with Josh Tostado.  I was covering […]

This is terrible weather for taking pictures! Right?

ShareI can’t shoot because its all cloudy and dark or raining and snowing.  In the same way that the average person thinks a bright sunny day is perfect for photography the average photographer thinks that bad weather equals bad images.   Well if that were true Steve McCurry’s book “Monsoon” probably would have never been made.  […]

Is there anybody out there?

ShareHello world. I’m  Braden Gunem.  Im a photographer.  I have always had an interest in photography and adventure, probably stemming from time spent in the pages of National Geographic magazines; after all I still want to go harvest honey in Nepal while dangling from vines.  When I was kid I loved the home video camera, […]
