Watch this. ‘Nuf said. Hat tip to my buddy Scotty R. for for pointing me to this piece.


Winter is upon us here in the Pacific Northwest and mountain pass road reports are essential. The WSDOT has a free app for iPhone and Android that has traffic, pass reports, ferries and more for the whole state of Washington. For iPhone users I hear there is an update in the next week or so that will also include pass camera to see that fresh snowfall! Truly useful source of travel info.

UPDATE: Hmmm… The Vimeo version is no longer posted, so you’ll have to use this link to see it at the Arc’teryx website.

I was shown this preview for “All.I.Can.” by my buddy Ian this week and wanted to share it here with you. I’ve seen a lot of ski movies, but this creates a fresh look and feel to the footage using time lapse. Can’t wait to see the whole thing when it is released. For all those mountain goers out there, pray for snow!

Just a little something sweet that caught my eye recently… The Matrix meets surfing. You can read more about the Rip Curl project using 52 Canon DSLRs and behind the scenes info over at PetaPixel. Have a great weekend!

A couple shout outs in this Stuff post to two Seattle photographers that I am lucky enough to also call friends. The first, above, is a 3D photo by photographer Ian Coble of whitewater kayaker Tao Berman, so bust out the red and green glasses and head over to Ian’s blog to learn more about his first foray into creating 3D images, or view the image larger on his website. Remember to vote you want a more behind-the-scenes look at how to create the 3D images!

Continued after the jump

Continuing a string of recent editorial photo assignments that required some serious safety gear and liability waivers to be signed, I found myself getting a glimpse of the storied circus act — the flying trapeze — at Emerald City Trapeze Arts in Seattle. I followed a couple newbies through ‘ground school’ and their first attempts to fly and a couple regulars working to progress.


Kenechi Udeze was a first-round draft pick of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings coming out of the University of Southern California, but four seasons into his professional career it was all cut short. Udeze was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Kenechi is now an assistant coach with the University of Washington football program and involved in several charities including the Livestrong Foundation. I recently had a quick portrait session with Kenechi and wanted to share a few of my favorites. Enjoy!

The football Kenechi brought as a prop for our shoot was borrowed directly out of Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian’s office, as even for an assistant college football coach it is hard to find a pigskin laying around in the offseason!

Wow. Blaine Lints loves to run. Seriously — LOVES to run. The high school junior is an aspiring ultramarathoner and endurance athlete, with already 60 miles of continuous running on his resume, he has his sights set on 130 miles in 24 hours during a Relay For Life event in Seattle at the end of May. More photos after the jump…

Over the weekend a few people I have had the pleasure of photographing did some cool stuff… First on Saturday New York Knicks Boston Celtics guard (and former Washington Husky) Nate Robinson became the first person to become 3-time NBA Dunk Contest Champion. You can check out the video over at Below is a portrait of Nate Robinson at his agent’s office in Post Alley in downtown Seattle.

And then on Sunday night, curling and Winter Olympic fever hit The Simpsons. U.S. national champion curlers Brady and Cristin Clark were technical advisors for the episode, and were part of an editorial assignment I shot for Seattle Metropolitan magazine.

That cheering you hear is myself with fellow fans of the Seattle Mariners, as they officially announced today a five-year contract extension for their 23-year-old ace pitcher Felix Hernandez. These images from my archive are from a start in King Felix’s rookie season in 2005. Making moves that could get them back on top of the AL West. Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in a couple weeks, and the boys of summer return to the field. More on the big-money contract for Hernandez here on the and
