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!

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!


Fresh off the press in the July issue of Seattle Met is a piece I photographed on tree climbing. Now I’ve climbed many trees growing up as a free-range child in Eastern Washington and even spent my fair share of time tied to a rope on a rock wall, but this was my first time on a rope ascending into a tree.

Had the opportunity to sneak out into the mountains for a great first day of early season turns at Stevens Pass last week. Jammed a single camera body in the backpack with a wide angle lens to make a couple snaps to document the day. Maybe I’ll find some time to pull some winter image faves from the archive to stoke the ski season fire… For now enjoy the quick hits!

I was recently assigned to make a portrait of actor Rainn Wilson, best known for his character Dwight Schrute on NBC’s comedy hit The Office, during a visit to his hometown of Seattle. I caught up to Rainn just before a benefit luncheon to support the Mona Foundation. I was quickly drawn to a set of nice wood cabinets, though stuffed into a hallway. Would the comedic star allow me to invade is personal space? Yep, and he was personable and cooperative to boot during our short photo session.

What does a pumpkin do the other 364 days a year? A couple images from a personal photography project I started last year, one of which was selected by Feature Shoot for their pumpkin showcase today. If you want to be a part of this continuing series and create a character, hit me up in the comments or drop me an email. Here’s to a fun and safe Halloween to all!
