The Get Ahead

If you keep up with my blog, Facebook, or Instagram then you have probably heard me rave about how amazing The Get Ahead is.  Hopefully you were smart, and clicked on the links I provided or better yet you went to a live show and found out for yourself that I wasn't lying.  But if not, here is another chance to check them out.

This band is amazing and I can't wait for our upcoming album cover shoot later this month!  It has been an amazing privilege to be with them from the very start, documenting their growth...and maybe winning a few dirty dancing competitions when I wasn't working, but I'm not one to brag.  A few weeks ago I not only photographed them while they were laying down some new tracks in the recording studio, I also photographed them playing at Jimmy Mak's that same week.  If you are familiar with the Portland Jazz scene then you will understand what an amazing opportunity that was for them. 

So I will stop yapping for now and you can click off my blog....after you view some of my favorite photos of course...and find out when they are performing next or follow them on Facebook!

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!
