So after lots of practice and time spent perfecting the editing I have learned a new technique that I am very proud of having learned. They are HDR portraits and depending on the application can come out giving a different feel to traditional portraits as well as enhancing the image and background details. So if these by chance happen to be your cup of tea feel free to reach out and book a shoot time. We can talk about it before hand and see what location and look fit best with you and what you are going for. Generally speaking these are great for moody and/or dramatic portraits or athletic portraits. Here are a couple of the ones I've shot so far. They really give a lot more detail in the highlights and the shadow areas, thats probably the easiest thing to notice. Aside from that is the slight grungy look to them. They take a little bit of extra time and work but they are worth it. Cheers!

Recent Product Photography I've recently had the chance to get out and shoot some product photography for a local business. I've done this in the past and always enjoy creating images to capture products up close and display their intended uses. In this instance it's been high end bikes. One mountain and one a gravel grinder. I love bikes so naturally I enjoy borrowing these awesome machines for a couple of days to take out and get some images as well as testing them out. Feel free to reach out to me for any product photography inquiries.

Portland Night Owls Occasionally when I can't sleep at night I call up friends interested in shooting and staying out past dark. This night I spent a couple of hours roaming around downtown Portland with Alana looking for cool places to shoot. This was one of my favorite shots from that night. Got some exercise walking, some good conversation and the chance to create some awesome images(which I recently discovered are awesome for warding off anxiety with me). All in all was a blast. See, it pays to be friends with photographers!

Roadside Improv Shoot So while driving down the street with my friend Marty we just happened to drive past a small couch on the sidewalk. It was a clear and sunny day and Marty was looking pretty fresh that day in his hipster wardrobe so I told him to make a u-turn and pull up near the couch. I said we're shooting a picture! Confused he asked of what? I said get out and give me a hand as we walked over towards the couch. I initially wanted to position it in the middle of the street for the shot but Marty wasn't feeling sitting in the middle of the road on a small couch with cars going past so I had to settle for the sidewalk. Regardless the shot turned out good! Thanks Marty.

2015 NW Cup #1 Downhill mountain bike racing season in the NW is officially under way. I spent all of the weekend of April 24-26th in Port Angeles for the first stop of the NW Cup 2015. I really love shooting all the high speed racing action from downhill events. Expect to see more coverage from me in the upcoming races. Good luck to all the racers!
