Last week we worked on a pretty large project with a real estate firm here in Portland to take photographs of all 30 of their agents and staff. The key was to have all the images look the same, but look unique at the same time. So we shot on location at 5 different homes over 3 days. Here are a few of my favorites. Environmental business portraits are probably one of my favorite things to shoot and this was a very fun project to work on.
Wedding + ski resort + summer = fun. We shot Tracy and Dan’s wedding this past weekend at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl. The ceremony was held at the top of the upper bowl, nestled in next to a warming hut. All in attendance enjoyed Mt. Hood as a picture-perfect backdrop, while the sun set and lit up the mountain with a pink hue. In order to reach this ceremony site, the bride, groom, and all their guests rode the chair lift all the way up from the base of Ski Bowl, and back down to the reception later in the evening. We love it when weddings take us out of the city and into the awesome wilderness.
If you live in Beaverton you may have seen these flyers hitting your mailbox a lot in the last few weeks. We had the pleasure of working with Brian Tosky’s campaign for Oregon House Representative to create images that will hopefully help tell his story and get him elected to the Oregon House. If you live in Beaverton and have not yet voted, be sure to cast your ballot by May 20! I am generally pretty neutral as far as politics go. Part of the job, but I will say that after spending over 3 days with Brian and his family I wouldn’t hesitate to vote for him. He is a good person with some good ideas. Here are a few of the mailers/web images/etc that we shot for the campaign.
have you seen any of these in your mailbox? Let me know! and Be sure to vote on May 20th!
Wow! What a weekend for sports (and sports photography!) in Portland last weekend. It all started on Friday night with game 6 of the NBA Playoffs between the Houston Rocket and Portland Trail Blazers. The entire series had already been one of the best in NBA history. 3 overtime games, each game decided by just a couple of points, each game coming down to the final seconds. Game 6 in Portland would not disappoint. Houston took the lead with .9 seconds to go in the game, and Damian Lillard hit a three pointer at the buzzer to win the series and send Portland to the second round for the first time in 14 years. The Moda Center center went absolutely nuts. It was amazing. Above is my photo of the final shot that ran in newspapers, magazines and websites all over the world.
Here is the same moment, captured from my remote camera on the opposite side of the court. Afterwards, mayhem in sued and I rushed the court to try and make a photo of Lillard as they celebrated.
This image from the pre game is also one of my favorites. Just overall an amazing game to be at and to shoot. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the very next night the Portland Timbers played DC United in the pouring rain at Providence Park. Gaston Fernandez scored 35 seconds in to the match.
The Timbers would score another first half goal, but going into stoppage time, the scored was tied at 2-2. There was 4 minutes of added time at the end of the game and at the 93:35 mark, Maximiliano Urruti scored at the buzzer to give the Timbers their first win on the season and more mayhem in the Rose City.
I’m VERY excited to announce our brand new website! I have been a photographer in Portland for a long time and my website has been through many incarnations and this new version might be my favorite. Not only does it work well on mobile platforms as well, but it is clean, fast and very easy to use. For clients, the image delivery and gallery display integration is second to none and you will love the ease of it all. Check it out and let me know what you think!
On Saturday we shot Yvonne and Adam’s wedding at The Aerie at Eagle Landing in Happy Valley. That’s a great venue on a beautiful golf course – kind of a hidden gem in Clackamas. We took some time before and after the ceremony to walk with Yvonne and Adam around the grounds to make some portraits. Love the tunnel, and the look of the exterior of the venue at dusk. To see more, view a sneak peek album of this wedding on Facebook.
