Bureau of Land Management: Fire Preparedness Review

Wildland Firefighting:

Preparedness Review for the Bureau of Land Management

 

A bee sting lays low a wildland firefighter in the Mojave Desert of St. George, Utah — or did it? This mock fire attack was part of the Arizona Strip District’s fire preparedness review at the start of the wildland fire season in the American Southwest.

Working and traveling with the Bureau of Land Management’s fire preparedness review team brought me to the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, 110-degree heat in Yuma, Arizona, and some pretty spectacular landscapes.

But the main purpose of the project was to capture the work of the Bureau’s Fire Preparedness Review Team: their mock fire exercises, equipment reviews, remote stations and helitack operations, and fuels management programs.

The picture of the “injured” firefighter was taken as part of one of these mock exercises in the Mojave Desert in the southwest corner of Utah. Firefighters of the Arizona Strip District practiced responding to environmental hazards — among them, the allergic reaction to a bee sting that required treatment, evacuation and calls for an airlift.

The ten-day photography project encompassed the Districts of the Arizona Strip, Colorado River and Phoenix area; we drove through desert, canyon, chaparal, and those gorgeous, butterscotch-scented Ponderosa pine forests.

This project is part of a three-year blanket purchase agreement with the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management, to provide photo and video coverage of the BLM’s fire program on public lands.

Environmental services photography assignments share a common thread. Whether they’re regulatory-driven initiatives, or projects designed to raise the profile of an agency, or to educate citizens about a particular problem or issue, these projects work to gain local support for community-based solutions.

Energy and Action in Environmental Photography

 

 

 

 

Even in environmental photography, where the landscape is often a static thing, it’s important to look for movement and energy.

I worked for fifteen years as a sports photographer, and it was a great arena to learn cutting-edge technology (those surfing photographers were always the first with a cool underwater development!), peak-action timing and deadline filing.  But most of all — and beyond developing a love of sports in general — I grew to love the energy in pictures that emerge from sports.

Sports photography can be quiet and contemplative, and sometimes depict just an expression or a stance, but my favorites are more often of the human body in motion. In these photos, there is power, tension, energy, accomplishment — or sometimes, failure. And failure can have just as much energy as great accomplishment.

Things slow down a little bit away from sports, but I still look for the energy in any scene I’m photographing. Energy gives life and tension to the static photo. One of my priorities when I’m shooting is to look for, or wait for, an expression of the energy in a scene.

Especially when that energy comes from a human being, whether in motion or conveyed in a stance or expression, energy in a photograph does more than show you what a place looks like. It shows you what it feels like to be there.

 

Energy can be an expression. Steven Hooker of Australia celebrates after clearing 5.80 during the Mens’ Pole Vault competition of the Adidas Grand Prix 2010 at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island in New York City, New York.

Digitizing William Henry Jackson’s Work for National Park Services

Digitizing William Henry Jackson’s Work for National Park Services

Federal Contracting in Nebraska:

Digitizing the Work of William Henry Jackson

 

 

 

Our assignment from the National Park Services: digitally archive the paintings and sketches of William Henry Jackson. 

William Henry Jackson’s images of Yellowstone, the Colorado Rockies, the native cultures of the Southwest and of the great geological survey teams of the period make up the largest and most significant body of American landscape photographs sent down to us through history.

We were hired by the Department of the Interior to digitize hundreds of Jackson’s works. I set up in the place where his collection is held, the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument in far western Nebraska. Over one week, I digitized the extensive collection of oil and watercolor paintings, albumin stereoviews, sketches, maps, lithographic prints, pencil drawings, certificates and ink washes.

We spend whatever time it takes to fully research a project before beginning it, and for me that meant getting ahold of an out-of-print copy of “The Pioneer Photographer”, Bob Blair’s expanded edition of Jackson’s diaries and letters. One hundred sixty of Jackson’s images illustrate a narrative of the expanding American West of the 1860s and 70s, and a still-young American nation. It was an important asset in preparing for the digitizing process.

By the time I got to Nebraska, I was a fan. I’d read the colorful stories attached to the creation of the paintings. And so it was slightly disorienting to spend so much time with the paintings themselves.  Here was the sketch of the mule who spied on the artist as he painted. Here was the great oil painting of the Holy Cross, a rock formation in the mountains (Jackson was disappointed with his foreground work, and so repainted over it). Here were the black-and-white photographs of mountains and canyons, never previously photographed but taken at such risk and difficulty for the surveying team.

A highlight of this trip, for me, was exploring the land around the two national monuments, Scotts Bluff and Agate Fossil Beds. Because it’s possible today to explore the exact locations where Jackson had created his images, I wandered the Scotts Bluff area, trying to match up the painted images with the landscape as it appears today.

“Because the transcontinental railroad had not bridged the Western United States, the Oregon Trail was still teeming with activity as Jackson headed west, fording the South Platte near Julesburg, Colorado, in 1866. The river, more than half a mile wide, was filled from bank to bank with teams.” — from The Pioneer Photographer
