New Product

I am very excited to announce the launch of this new product to my shop, vintage camera lens planters! A wonderful way to add a touch of vintage to your home decor. 

Last year I started making planters with the various broken camera lenses I had lying around that I couldn't bring myself to throw away. They were beautiful objects, they just didn't function anymore for a myriad of reasons. After several guests complimented them I thought maybe I was onto sometime. Which brings us to todays launch!

Recent Work

Back in January I had the pleasure of doing a portrait session with Team U.S.A. member and Gotham Roller Girls All-Star player, Mick Swagger. She wanted to create some strong athletic portraits to help launch her derby career move of switching from player to coach. For those of you who don't know, I was an original member of Portland's Rose City Roller. I played derby for 6 years and coached for 2 years so portraits like these always have a special place in my heart.

In late January Portland had a crazy week of really heavy fog. It was so beautiful seeing the city and the bridges disappear into the fog and turned into a great backdrop for this family portrait session in Cathedral Park.

Just two weeks ago I ventured out to Mississippi Studios to photograph The Get Ahead's release of their first full length album, Volcano. The place was packed and their performance was spot on as usual. I recommend heading on over to their website and downloading the CD.

The mannequin series continues. I have been having so much fun shooting these strange scenes with all my mannequin parts. This is one of my latest and has proved to be a favorite on social media. To see more, visit my gallery.

Book Update

I have been chipping away at my to do list to make the drive-in theatre book happen. Lots of research into printers and publishers. I currently have it narrowed down to around 100 images. I am off to Hawaii this for a much anticipated vacation and will be jumping into designing the layout as soon as I return. In the mean time, I will leave you with an image from the first drive-in theatre I ever photographed.

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!
