Behind the Scenes

Last night I made my second trip out to 104th St. Drive-In here in Portland for a shoot.  My first trip I attempted to model and photograph.  Lets just say, I am not a very good model so I made the trip again last night with a fresh new idea and a model in tow.  Derek Willis also joined along to help finishing up the filming for my Kickstarter video.  I am hoping to have my Kickstarter live by April 10th!  

A little history for you about 104th St. Drive-In.  What was once the largest drive-in screen in Portland, is now just a sign on the side of a busy road.  Not all was lost when this theater closed though, in 1990 the screen went to 99W Drive-In after theirs had been damaged by wind.  99W Drive-In still remains open today and was recently saved by Honda'a Project Drive-In, a nation wide contest that has saved 9 drive-in theaters so far by raising funds to buy them new digital projectors.

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!
