Its been a long 2 weeks here in Jackson. A few days ago I was putting my valuables together with the anticipation of having to evacuate my house. Not a fun thing to do really. Fortunately, due the extremely hard work and dedication of the firefighters and favorable conditions, the Horsethief Canyon Fire is mostly contained. The men and women who make up the firefighter teams are real life heroes. They literally saved our town. I decided last week to go out and meet a few of them. These folks are extremely dedicated and very humble. Over the course of a few days I was able to capture about 90 or so of these individuals. It was a great experience to meet them and learn about their occupations. It takes a tremendous amount of team work across many organizations to manage an incident. I have created a gallery of the entire edit which you can view at the link below and I posted a brief edit of some of my favorites here. I hope you will take a few minutes to view the portraits and connect with these heroes who saved Jackson!
