Here’s the fold-out cover of the March issue of The Winged M. We shot this photo of the board of trustees a few weeks ago at the Multnomah Athletic Club with the two-page spread in mind, which was a fun project.
Here’s a clip from the March issue of Alaska Airlines Magazine. It features a three page story called “Gearing up to take great photos” and interviews some really great photographers like Art Wolfe. They also featured me in there for some reason. Kind of cool. You can pick up a copy on your next flight.
We are now accepting applications for our 2016 summer internship.
Come and work for one of the busiest photo studios in Oregon. Studio clients include 5 different sports teams, magazines, newspapers, wedding clients, corporate clients, commercial clients and more. This is a paid internship, working about 20-25 hours per week. This is a shooting and assisting position. You will work directly with Craig Mitchelldyer on various shoots and events and be sent out on assignments on your own, including Portland Timbers, Portland Thorns and Hillsboro Hops games, community events and player appearances. You will also be assisting on editorial and commercial shoots and editing/captioning various assignments.
Preference is given to current college students or recent grads, but is open to anyone.
We are looking for a person with solid shooting skills – preferably a strong sports portfolio – who can work independently when needed, be on time and professional. You will be representing the studio and our clients when you are in the community and on assignment.
Former Mitchelldyer Photography interns have gone on to work for other sports teams, like the Arizona Diamondbacks, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers and Oregon State Beavers. Some have moved on to work for newspapers and/or have successful freelance careers.
During this internship you will learn valuable skills including shooting and transmitting on tight deadlines, working with a variety of different clients with different needs, and most importantly, the business of photography. Limited pool gear is provided if you do not have your own.
Start times can be flexible, but generally, beginning/middle of May until the end of August is typical.

What a wild and crazy ride the last couple months have been. In case you hadn’t heard, the Portland Timbers won the 2015 MLS Cup. Defeating the Columbus Crew 2-1 in Columbus, Ohio on December 6th.
I was with the team for every playoff game – home and on the road – documenting them on and off the field for the team as they won the cup, brought it back to PDX and celebrated with a huge parade and rally. Here are some of my favorite photos from the Cup run.
This season we have been covering most of the Portland Trail Blazers games for the Associated Press. Images are shot and distributed on the wire and I rarely ever see how they get used or where they end up. The other day, Damian Lillard scored 17 points in the final 3:06 to bring the Blazers back and defeat the Thunder. My photos of Lillard got a lot of play online – SportsCenter used it on instagram, numerous other newspapers, etc. It was a nice surprise to open my morning paper and see that the local newspaper, The Oregonian, also used a photo on the front of the sports section.
