Ice Fishing in Wisconsin
It's been a year since my wife and I left our home in Chicago. I knew I was leaving behind a talented network of friends and colleagues when we decided to move to Colorado, but I've been keeping in touch with some that I'm sure will be lifelong friends.
These are some photos from a recent ice fishing trip in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. We only caught three fish in two days (pretty sure we actually caught one fish twice) so there was a fair amount of down time between to catch up and discuss our favorite lighting setups and latest industry tech.

Joel Pearish is the director at Volume One in Eau Claire and doesn't take guff from anybody
Sean Kelly is a talented director + DP in Chicago and shot a feature film recently that looks pretty neat
Jon captured a really great expression on my face in this moment
I never really liked pushing hooks through these little guys
Joel picked up a nine person shanty for just such an occasion. He was a gracious host!
The light in the shanty had some really stunning qualities
Joel keeps an eye on the line as every fish swims past his lure
It was a gray Wisconsin day. Midwest winters could use more sunlight, if you ask me.
