  3. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson for Alaska Airlines

    Had an amazing opportunity to photograph the Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson this week before they head into this Saturdays playoff match-up. Russell is teaming up with Alaska Airlines to donate 100,000 Air Miles to Children’s Hospital for every touchdown pass he throws or TD he runs in himself. Russell was extremely polite, well spoken, and a real role model in an era where huge sports stars are often the opposite.  I hope to see him and the rest of my home team in the Super Bowl next month.

     

  4. Chripify CEO for Entrepreneur Magazine


    Went down to Portland, OR to photograph the CEO of Chirpify Chris Teso for Entrepreneur Magazine. I gotta admit CEO shoots can sometimes be boring or tricky to make unique. This one was a blast. The office could not of been “more portland” with ping pong tables, dogs running around and plenty of good food/coffee for the employees.



     

  5. Hardwicks for Popular Mechanics

    Had a shoot for this months Popular Mechanics. Shooting the amazing Seattle Hardware store Hardwicks. There narrow hallways are full of endless tools and gear. I ended up spending more money than I wanted to before leaving the shoot haha.

     

  6. Non Profit: AtWork!

    These photos are from a project I recently completed focusing on several Non Profit organizations in Seattle, WA. The collaboration between PCNW and the Seattle Foundation placed several chosen photographers including myself into different non profits that the Seattle Foundation supports. Creating small bodies of work showcasing these valuable organizations.



    AtWork! is a highly supportive and innovative conduit between people with disabilities and mainstream employers in the community. It helps train as well as place disabled people in jobs around our city. I took these photos of some of the older employees who are with AtWork!.


     

  7. 2013: A Memorable Year!

    image

    Outtake from a shoot I did about WA States Pot Legalization in 2013.

    I have been enjoying reading my fellow photographer friends year end posts. I need to devote some time and dig through the archives to post up a few unreleased favorites from 2013. It was a very memorable year for me as a photographer. I truly love this job so much and although it can be a struggle freelancing & finding the balance between finding/shooting paid work and personal work, I feel I have continued to grow and create photos I’m proud of. Thanks to all my friends/family who keep supporting me so much. Also a big thanks to the photo editors who have hired me and given me a chance to show what I can do.

    The BIG Highlights of 2013:
    *Shooting for the New York Times Sunday Magazine
    *Being featured in PDN showing my transition into full-time freelance life.
    *Completing an entire cook-book shoot that will be on shelves this year
    *Shooting for new editorial publications including Bon Appetit, Dwell, & Martha Stewart Living
    *Seeing my Fire Lookout personal project get such a great response
    *I went to NYC for tandem meetings with my guy Michael Frieberg and we bro’d each other out to editors. Some people were into it. Others weren’t. It’s cool either way because we had fun.
    *Being part of such a great growing Roster of talent on Bianco Artist Management.

  11. Dow Griffith: Jungle Scout

    image

    Dow Griffith has a unique skill that has landed him a career of travel. Dow is one of Hollywood’s go-to Jungle Scouts. He helps directors/producers find the best places to shoot all across the world. Originally a documentarian himself, his unique knowledge of indigenous people and remote locations helped transition him into scouting. We had a blast shooting and trading fishing stories.

  13. My Summer Above The Clouds

    image


    This summer I set out to devote more time to two things I desperately needed more of; Personal Work & Time Outdoors. My WA State Fire Lookout project offered both of these things. It combined my loves of portraiture/exploration/landscapes and northwest history. I will continue to chip away at the 92 remaining lookout towers of WA State next summer but for now the project will pause. I cannot thank Filson enough for helping sponsor the project. Part 2 is live on the Filson Life Blog today. click HERE
