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 […]

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse

For this post I’ve done a little something different from the norm. I took artistic liberties that I normally don’t do. A few nights ago I was on the Oregon Coast enjoying a ridiculously beautiful sunset at Ecola State Park and got into a position where Tillamook Rock Lighthouse stood out perfectly against the sky. Decommissioned in 1957, the […]

The Lake, the Sailboat and the Mountain

Sometimes we get a keeper shot by accident while working on another job. In this case I was doing some modeling photography with a lovely young lady with this as a backdrop, and I decided to knock out a  couple of shots of this incredibly serene view of Mount Rainier and Lake Washington from Medina, WA – […]
