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!

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!

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.


I definitely enjoy a DIY project whether remodeling my house or creating a new light modifier for the kit. Recently I decided to create a beauty dish and ran across a nice design from photographer Todd Owyoung. The portraits above of Olympic track cyclist Jennie Reed, at left, and the prep baseball player were lit only with the beauty dish I made. MORE PHOTOS AND HOW-TO INFO AFTER THE JUMP…

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!

Every summer I make a return to my childhood stomping grounds with trip to Curlew Lake in Northeast Washington to see family and friends, and take sometime to recharge. During the annual pilgrimage, I always take time to make a few images of my friends as they enjoy water sports. For this year’s session I decided to have some fun and set up a couple Speedlights on the boat’s tower and head out into the fading light. Two boats, a couple of radios and pre-communication between boat drivers and we had ourselves a set. Came back with a couple of nice images to stoke out the boys, and some fresh ideas for producing a full photo shoot in the future. More images after the jump… Enjoy!
