I’m not into politics, but I do think politicians are definitely interesting folks to photograph. They are all characters of some sort. I photographed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a visit to the Microsoft campus last fall while I was still in a staff photographer position for a newspaper group. After taking the obligatory images I knew the editors wanted, I made a visual character study that I believed would have a longer shelf life than the local visit that day. As we enter the final throes of an election year, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites… and yes, those are sheep on his tie.

Taking a minute to share some recent frames from my Holga. Kodak Portra 400VC for you film geeks. Lately I’ve had the urge to shoot some film again and keeping it simple. I recently became another statistic in the decline of newspapers as I was laid off from my staff photographer position. I’m looking at it as a blessing to pursue a some ideas that I have not had time for, and motivation to get rolling on some personal projects. More photos after the jump…

Posts have been few and far between in the last year here, but not because I haven’t been shooting… my photojournalism work with a Seattle-area news group has kept me more than busy. With the uncertainty in the world of the staff photographer, I have started the labor of love that is a portfolio rebuild and a heartfelt effort to find a personal project or two this year. Above, is an image from the Palouse in Eastern Washington, a country road intersection well off the beaten path on January 14, 2012. Good things on the horizon and a concerted effort to share more here on the blog.


When most people think of hip hop and rappers, Seattle is not the first city to come to mind. And even if you do think of Seattle’s hip hop scene, I’d bet a few pennies that the city’s Eastside suburbs that house companies the likes of Microsoft, would not be in the conversation. Seattle-grown hip hop artists currently making a buzz include Macklemore and Blue Scholars, and I’d be remiss not to remind you of Sir Mix-A-Lot. I recently photographed three rappers in various stages of their careers that are breaking through this affluent suburb stereotype. Above, rapper Neema performs a live show in Everett, WA. Portraits after the jump…

Recently spent some time unwinding with my family along the Washington coast in Ocean Shores. A few of my favorite snaps from a blustery January day after the jump…

A sequence of the full lunar eclipse through a thin cloud cover over Shoreline, WA, on December 20, 2010. We had a lot of clouds and even rain showers around the region and I thought for a bit I was going to miss the event, but in an attempt to perservere, I laid the seat back in my car in the driveway and watched through the moonroof, sporadically opening it to capture a frame between clouds and rain drops. Then as the full eclipse hit, I got about two minutes of clear sky. Just enough frames to stitch a little sequence together in Photoshop. For gear heads, I used a Nikon D300 and 400mm f/2.8 lens, and cropped the image tighter in post production. Below a single of the full lunar eclipse.

The full lunar eclipse photographed at 11:43 p.m. as momentarily viewed between a shifting cloud cover in Shoreline, WA, on Monday, December 20, 2010. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Grammy-award winning singer John Legend recently made an appearance for Hopelink, a Seattle-area charity serving homeless and low-income families, during their annual fundraising luncheon. I was assigned to photograph the noted recording artist during a brief media interview time prior to the lunch appearance.

Skillet Street Food founder Josh Henderson dished his tips for the tailgate grill in the November issue of Seattle Met. I got the assignment call right before a recent trip to Kauai and was stoked for a fun portrait session before hopping on the plane. Photographed on location in the Montlake parking lot outside Husky Stadium at the University of Washington in Seattle, it was just a small crew of Dawg fans firing up the BBQ wishing it was actually a college football Saturday! -Continue reading photo post…>

Final series installment of images from Kauai features some surf images from a break at Poipu Beach, and then some snaps from a little stroll into the forest for some cliff and rope swing action at Kipu Falls. Just a reminder of good life rule to follow:  Do not jump off cliffs or rope swings into water if you cannot swim. Period. Even on vacation in Kauai. You may miss your luau. Long story short, our group had to Hasselhoff three — yes, three people from the same family — from drowning in less than an hour. Crazy. Anyway back to the photographs… Enjoy!
