The Multnomah Athletic Club brought us back for another photo shoot to be featured in their publication, The Winged M. The cover photo was shot to advertise the club’s annual artisanal picnic event, and they even provided a stylist and sweet little Teardrop camping trailer from Teardrops NW. The inside spreads showcased a few accomplished names in the sports world of Squash.

We were hired by the Washington State Dental Association to photograph Dr. Jacqueline Angell, as she was chosen to receive the 2015 Citizen of the Year Award by the WSDA. We took her to Forest Park to shoot these photos used in the WSDA magazine. In true Portland fashion, we came across a band randomly playing music on a trail. Dr. Angell got excited about this and sat with them for a while. (See this picture on the Table of Contents page.) Here are the spreads.
Hillsboro Aviation is one of our favorite clients, and this time we were shooting their chairman and crew for Rotor Magazine. Here is the cover of the Summer 2015 issue, and the inside spreads.
If you fly on Alaska Airlines this month, you’ll see some of our Timbers work in the in-flight magazine.
Last week, we were hired to document the protest of Greenpeace activists against the passing of the Shell Oil icebreaker MSV Fennica under the St. John’s Bridge. It was a crazy 48 hours. It all started with a phone call at 10:30pm saying to meet in the park at midnight. From there, we waited until about 2:30am when the activists began repelling off the bridge. It was pitch black outside and we could not see anything other than a small headlamp here and there. using super high ISO (20,000 and higher!) and shooting longs lenses at 1/15 of a second, the camera could see the climbers when our eyes could not. It was pretty fun. around 6am the sun starting coming up and we downloaded our cards so an editor to get the images out on social media and to news services and I headed to the downtown helipad where I met with an R44 for a flight around the bridge for some photos from the air.
After the flight, I went back home – now awake for 39 straight hours and tried to get some sleep. The next morning my phone rang again. This time, the boat was moving and it was showdown time! I grabbed my gear and hustled back down to the helipad and got in the helicopter again, this time shooting the stand-off between the icebreaker and the activists hanging from the bridge before the ship turned around and went back to port. They had won the battle for the time being. Later in the day, a court would order the activists down and that evening the ship passed through. Our intern Kevin was on the ground shooting the final passing. It was a pretty successful event for Greenpeace and fun to be a part of the crew documenting it.
On the way back from the bridge I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take some photos of our great city from the air. A whirlwind 48 hours and a fun assignment. My photos were used by Greenpeace and media outlets all over the world.
Here is the cover and inside spread of the August issue of The Winged M Magazine. The Multnomah Athletic club is one of our favorite clients, and we shoot for them every year. It’s always fun to see the finished product in their publication.
One of my favorite clients to work for every year is Super Lawyers Magazine. I spent about a month working on various shoots for this year’s Oregon addition. Here are some clips.
A couple of months ago we were contacted by IMPACT Magazine, a Canadian sports publication, to shoot a feature on Aston Eaton and Brianne Theissen-Eaton for the summer issue. Track and Field royalty here in Oregon, I was happy to get the assignment. Ashton won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 2012 London Olympics, setting a new world record. Brianne is an amazing heptathlete as well, a 2 time world silver medalist and 2012 olympian. The focus of the story was Brianne competing in the Toronto PanAm games in her home country of Canada.
As you can imagine, their training and travel schedule is all over the place so nailing down a time for the shoot was a tough one, but once we nailed it down we needed a location. They train in Eugene and that is where the shoot would take place. Originally I was going to setup an outdoor studio at the track where they were training, but the wether had other ideas and left me scrambling for a location at the last minute. Luckily, my friend and photo editor Rob Romig at the Register Guard newspaper in Eugene came to the rescue and let me use their photo studio.
Here is how it looked in print. They ran Brianne on the cover and a shot of her training on the contents page. And a large photo of them both on the story opener. They also ran a mug and short bio of me in the contributors section which was cool.
I also shot some stuff of Ashton by himself that did not get published but I still like it. It was fun to get to shoot them. I have been covering Ashton since he was in high school. I remember one year he single handily won the state title for his team with all the events he did. Now, he is the greatest athlete in the entire world.
