This Portland trip has been busier than most, but Kayla and I managed to carve out a couple hours for a quick shoot. It was a gorgeous day in Portland, so the window light was perfect. There's something to be said for working with the same models for years. We are able to spend less … Continue reading Kayla – September 2019
We had talked about doing a shoot almost two years ago, but hadn't actually had the opportunity until recently. Lisa is an awesome person with no modeling experience, but she still made my job easy. We wandered around the Ulm area, then headed up to the First Peoples' Buffalo Jump. It was great to finally … Continue reading Quick Shoot with Lisa
Kayla had some ideas for a towel shot, so we figured we'd make a whole boudoir shoot out of it. It's been awhile since I've done a shoot like this, but we figured it out. Kayla rocked it, as always, and we ended up with some great images. The window light was great, but we … Continue reading Boudoir with Kayla
I have a tendency to overbook myself when I come to Portland. Obviously, I want to spend as much time as possible with family, but there are other people I need to see when I'm here, too. My three favorite models are some of those people. I have a shoot with all three planned for … Continue reading Quick afternoon shoot with Ashlee
I've been trying to come up with a metal-themed print for the wall of my buddy's office building. I shot trains, random abstract metal, and anything else I could think of, but none of them really impressed me. Then I realized it needed to be a portrait. Luckily, I have friends with kids who thought … Continue reading Metal Portraits with Mya and Kaylee
I finally made it back to Portland in September, and hung out for a few weeks. Naturally, I had to schedule a shoot with my three favorite models. We borrowed a house and just had fun.
I’ve always been in awe of Milky Way photos, but have never really attempted one myself. Now that I’m out in Montana, and light pollution is easier to get away from, I figured I’d give it a shot. I have a long way to go, but I can definitely see how astrophotography is addicting. I … Continue reading Milky Way
Back in 2011, I shot Malala's senior photos: This week I had the opportunity to get her in front of my camera again. Hopefully, we'll find time to do more shoots when I'm in Portland.
We headed out to Sokol Blosser and White Rose to tase some wine and grab some photos. Because wine goes with photography, obviously.
I never have quite as much time as I'd like when I visit Portland. So instead of big shoots that require driving and setup and all that, we opted for something simple this time. Ava Roasteria has a great location in Progress Ridge next to a large pond. There are outdoor tables on the west … Continue reading Kayla and Coffee
