Some o f m y b e s t s h o ts h a v e b e e n i n b e l o w - z e r o temperatures.” A residence at Yellowstone Club. Neumann’s professional hardiness comes naturally. A native of Marquette, Michigan, he skis, plays hockey and likes to sailboard, amongst other sports, so toting photography equipment through inclement weather is a relative breeze. His photographic stamina has helped build his reputation for crafting warm, approachable images of Montana’s spectacularly rustic mountain resort homes, making viewers want to curl up next to stone fireplaces or relax on patios plunked in the midst of alpine meadows. His clients include architects, interior designers, builders and developers.
  • 2. Montana residences by SBC of Bozeman, Montana. Neumann admits that although an interest in photography has been a constant in his life, his career path has been circuitous. Armed with an economics degree from the University of Michigan, he left the Midwest in the early 1980s with the idea of going to San Francisco to “find a real job.” Along the way, he stopped in Vail, Colorado to ski and wound up staying for 16 years, doing everything from coaching skiing to bartending. It was there that Neumann rekindled his interest in photography by interning with a commercial photographer after blowing out his knee in a ski accident. “I actually learned the ropes of the business from two photographers in Colorado,” Neumann says. “They mentored me, and I learned to shoot everything from ski action shots to architecture. When you work in a small town, you have to diversify.” Marriage, family and a desire to try something different brought him to Bozeman in 2000, where he went to work selling real estate for the Yellowstone Club, an exclusive ski and golf development. “I wound up doing photography there, and realized I still had a passion for it.” He opted to launch his own photography business two years later, helped by the contacts he’d made while working at the development. Often working with an assistant, Neumann shoots residential and commercial projects primarily for clients who use the images for marketing and portfolio purposes. With his wife, Lisa Neumann, handling marketing, his work has been seen far beyond Montana. His images have been published in the Wall Street Journal, Log Home Living, Cowboys & Indians and the Robb Report, and seen on the ABC program “20/20.” One of his most recent projects has been the acquisition of a 1,300-square-foot studio in Bozeman. “Even though I’m a location photographer, I’ve always been interested in shooting people,” he says. “Having a studio lets me explore that. Lately, I’ve been shooting body builders and athletes. I also did a fundraising calendar for a hockey team.” The studio, it seems, allows Neumann to thaw out in between those snowshoe-and-sub- zero-temperature shoots.
