Natural Disasters + Natural Beauty = Best Portrait Session

Today is going to be a post that has been floating around my head for a few years. I’m going to try and keep it short and succinct, while letting the imagery do most of the talking for me. For this shoot, we used a natural disaster (forest fires) into an incredible opportunity for an […]

A Slightly Different Look at Seattle

Last week I was shooting a business event at a law firm in downtown Seattle on the 34th floor near the waterfront and had periodic stretches of downtime, which I spent marveling at the absolute beauty of the busy world far below me. I decided to knock out a few shots with the portrait lens […]

Civil War Reenactment

It’s a new year, and for the first time in a couple of years I’m going to try a couple of new things with my blogging platform (which is also used as an extension of our website). The biggest thing that holds me back is the sheer amount of time formatting these posts. One paragraph and […]

Military Portrait Photo Restoration

One of my favorite jobs I am increasingly getting at work are photo restorations. For someone who is always running all over town setting up photo equipment, shooting, breaking down and hitting the next location – the option of sitting in one place for a couple of hours is pure joy to someone like me.

Portrait Sessions Video!

Very excited! I just made my first portrait video for my company from scratch without hiring a service to put it together for me. Music is licensed, I like the vibe and flow, and I kept everything short and sweet. Very different from anything I’ve ever done before. If you like what you see, leave […]
