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…>

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!

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!

This installment of my Kauai photo series features images shot using a Canon G9 in waterproof housing.  I had great time playing in the genre of underwater photography while snorkeling at Poipu Beach Park. I think I need to get my hands on some pro-level waterproof gear to work on a project in the future. These are all snaps that have little control with the movement of water and limited view of the camera back to frame the shot. “Shoot lots and pick some favorites,” was my mantra.

I’m going to share some photos over the week from my recent trip to Kauai. You can consider them personal work, photojournalism, vacation snaps or whatever… The images are off the cuff of scenes that caught my eye with no intent towards a commercial outlet. This first series is from a sunset dinner cruise aboard a catamaran from Port Allen to the Na Pali Coast. Unfortunately we caught the first winter storm of the season with 8-14 foot swells. More than a third of the passengers got seasick and only five ate dinner. I’ll admit to having to work hard and be mentally tough to hold it down, but I snuck through without incident. Above, the mountains of the Na Pali Coast soar to nearly 4,200 feet in elevation from sea level.

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog the last couple weeks, but that is due in part to some fun projects and a trip to Kauai for a good friend’s wedding and time with my wife and son. I’ll put together a fun photo post this week on some of the sights from my visit, since how can you go to Hawaii and not snap some frames in a beautiful place?!? Above, is an image from a little time I spent shooting a Canon G9 in an underwater housing at Poipu Beach. Keep an eye out for more to come…

Cameras are everywhere, the most prevalent are in our mobile devices, and the old photography cliche of “being in the right place at the right time” rings true. It has never been easier to take and transmit images from anywhere. I will be the first to admit incessant image taking with my iPhone, such as the rainy commute above. With my roots in photojournalism, this reader-submitted gallery of yesterday’s storm in NYC on the New York Times caught my eye. But with the ease of information transmission and user generated content, so come the pitfalls such as disinformation as TIME was duped by a photo snatched from Twitter showing a tornado near the Statue of Liberty. The surprise to me was that the image was actually real, but had been taken in 1976. It is a good reminder that while photojournalists cannot be everywhere at once on breaking news events, as professionals they can provide true and trusted images.

UPDATE 09.20.10: Not directly a photography related bit, but an interesting timeline about the prematurely reported death of NHL coach Pat Burns.

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.
