A few weeks ago, we shot the Board of Trustees at the pool of the Multnomah Athletic Club for the March cover of their magazine, The Winged M. What’s better than a magazine cover? A double truck magazine cover! The left is the cover and then it folds out to reveal the entire photo. Second year we’ve done this shot this way for them and I like it.
Saturday night we shot the state prep wrestling tournament for the Register-Guard paper in Eugene. Here is how the pictures played out in the paper the next day.
Here’s a better view of the black & white picture above: Joseph Ballard’s reaction after winning his second Class 2A/1A title at the OSAA state wrestling championships.
Here are a few clips from Washington State Dental Association Magazine that we shot recently.
For this portrait, we went to Union, WA and photographed executive director Steve Hardymon at the Alderbrook Resort. This resort is a beautiful place, so we took advantage of that fact and shot in various different areas. Here is how it was executed in print. I love working for WSDA Magazine. The art director, Rob, always plays photos real big, which I really like.
Then we drove up to Olympia to photograph WSDA lobbyists Brad Boswell and Vicki Christopherson.
My 1st grade son loves sports. He’s quite the little athlete. Right now he is playing soccer and basketball. I’m helping coach his basketball team and when it was time for team photos, I decided I’d shoot them instead of having the league photographer do it so we could have something cool. Here is what I shot. They look like such little bad asses. Love it. You do not want to mess with them!
Here is my little man. Love this kid! So much fun watching him play.
The final installment of our 14 of 2014 is a little late, but better late than never. It’s a tough one as I shoot a ton of sports, but we narrowed it down to these 14 favorite photos. I hope you enjoyed the other 14 of 14 posts as well!
The best moment in Portland sports in 2014 had to have been Damian Lillard’s buzzer beating 3 pointer shot with .9 seconds on the clock to advance the Blazers to the second round of the NBA playoffs. It was great to witness it. Since that moment this image has ben published in hundreds, if not thousands of publications, including a double truck in ESPN the Magazine, a page in SI for Kids and is the only action photo in this years Blazers media guide.
Today’s installment of our 14 of 2014 – portraits. I shoot a LOT of portraits. Corporate portraits, editorial portraits, athlete portraits. I love shooting portraits. Probably one of my favorite things. Here are 14 of my favorites from 2014.
This image of Guy Pope was shot for Barron’s Magazine, one of my favorite clients. I love shooting for them as they allow a lot of creativity and look for photos that are not your typical images. For this shoot, we trekked into Forest Park with a cart full of lights and I love the way it turned out.
By now, everyone knows who Marcus Mariota is. I shot the 2014 Heisman winner a couple of weeks before the season opener for a feature in USA Today. Later images from this shoot were also used on the cover of Athlon Sports the week he won the award. He was probably the nicest athlete I’ve ever shot and I’ve shot a lot of them.
Late in the year Advocate called me up to shoot some photos of Timbers Midfielder Darlington Nagbe, loved how this shoot turned out.
The World Beard and Moustache Championships might have been my favorite shoot of the entire year. I was hired to shoot images of the event and convinced the client to let me shoot portraits of winners backstage. The resulting photos were shared over 5000 times on Facebook and Twitter and used in websites, newspapers, blogs and TV shows all around the world.
Thanks for checking out of favorite portraits photos from 2014. Stay tuned for the final installment of our favorite sports images coming soon.
