Northwest Coos County Beaches

The terrain at both Horsfall and Bastendorff beaches is wide and flat, surrounded by large dunes where people were riding horses and OHVs…

Canemah Bluff Nature Park

In April 2018, Elaine and I walked the trails of Canemah Bluff Nature Park just south of downtown Oregon City. The sun was setting on a lovely spring day turning everything, even the newly bloomed camas fields, golden…

Mari Stenger, More from Willamette Mission State Park, Oregon

Model Mari Stenger and I worked together in July 2017 at Willamette Mission State Park to do a portrait session based around a Lana Del Rey vibe. Mari totally nailed it, as she has that same classic Hollywood look about her, and is a real natural at modeling.

Mari Stenger, Expired Film

I found some expired 400 film from the 1990s and shot model Mari Stenger with my trusty Canon AE-1. We were in the Willamette Mission State Park near Salem, Oregon, and attempting a Lana Del Rey vibe...

Ellie Pritts and Portland's Mississippi District

Angeleno power-player Ellie Pritts and I wandered in April 2017 around a couple of blocks in North Portland's Mississippi District, where there are fun little shops, bars, and coffee shops. Plus, we got to see one of the most wonderfully named parks in town, DeNorval Unthank City Park, or as it's more commonly known: Unthank Park. What a name! And from what I hear, Dr. Unthank himself was pretty amazing too, breaking numerous racial barriers in 20th century Portland...

Portait: Jenna at Powell Butte

Traveling model Jenna shot with me at Powell Butte in Portland, Oregon, in March 2017. We have had one of the rainiest years on record here in rainy PDX, but Jenna and I somehow got to have an hour to stand outside and not get drenched. This year that qualifies as miraculous...

Eve Connell

Portland, Oregon, is full of great creative people. Singer Eve Connell is one of them. In February 2017 we shot together at Sellwood Riverfront Park in southeast Portland. With her charm and fearlessness, she's like our town's own Mary Tyler Moore. It was fun to capture some of that spirit.

Sauvie Island Fashion Shoot for Rogue Minx (Post 2 of 2)

In May 2015, I worked with Rogue Minx Clothing on a great fashion shoot at Sauvie Island, Oregon. Hair and makeup was by Marie. The models were AjaZoë, and Sarah. Here's the second of two posts about that day.

Nate Bowman, Welder

Professional welder Nate Bowman and I shot together by Portland's Broadway Bridge in January 2017. It had been a long time since I was able to shoot some welding, so it was great fun to re-learn the basics of getting good shots with that much variation of light. Can't wait for the next opportunity to shoot with him! What's more fun that sparks of fire? Not much...
