Environmental Summit

As promised, I am going to try and post weekly until I have updated all the fun shoots I have been doing.  I will start with a personal favorite of mine.  A few weeks ago I was hired by Hollywood Lights to photograph their lighting setup at the 2013 Environmental Summit.  They provided all the lighting for the Dalai Lama's address and for the Red Hot Chili Peppers benefit show that followed.  It was such an amazing event to attend and a pleasure to photograph.  If this is work, then I have the best job on the planet...well next to the employees at Hollywood I guess since they do this all the time.  If you were wondering, the Chili Peppers still put on a great show!  Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Portland, OR, United States of America

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
