I was pleasantly surprised to see my photo of Damian Lillard’s last second shot to win game 6 and the series against the Houston Rockets in last years playoffs was run as a double truck in ESPN the Magazine’s latest issue. One of the greatest moments in Blazer history and one of my favorite photos this year. Always nice to see large photos in major magazines.
Last weekend we were lucky to have the opportunity to fly down to Lake Tahoe to shoot a beautiful wedding at Heavenly Ski Resort. The day was eventful as we started out at the base of the mountain and worked our way up via a gondola. The weather went from warm and sunny to suddenly raining and smokey due to a nearby forest fire, but that didn’t stop us from venturing outside with the bride and groom. The chaotic weather pattern gave us a stunning backdrop during sunset. To see more of Steph and Eric’s wedding, visit their sneak peek album here.
Tuesday night the Portland Timbers hosted the first CONCACAF Champions League game in Portland. The boys in green won 4-2 vs CD Olimpia of Hondorus taking the lead in the group stage of the tournament. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the game. The first shot I love. Maxi’s foot on the keepers foot, the keeper with a hand in the face and yet he still got passed him to score a goal!
Last weekend we shot Amy and Harry’s beautiful wedding at Villa Catalana Cellars in Oregon City. In the summer, this vineyard lends its space to the Rare Plant Research Nursery for special events, such as this one. We couldn’t have asked for a better setting or better light. The ceremony was held on a stone terrace overlooking a pond, and the reception activities went on against a beautiful sunset backdrop. Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the night.
Here is a clip from a recent photo shoot we did for LINKS Magazine for a story about speed golfing. Had a fun time out out Pumpkin Ridge in Hillsboro, OR with Christopher Smith. Hauled some lights out onto the middle of the course and setup a spot for him to jump over a little creek to show how the pace of speed golf doesn’t follow traditional paths. You get to the ball as fast as you can anyway you can!
