Recently, I did some work for Getty Images creative division. I was asked to shoot a brief capturing the spirit and essence of parkour and parkour athletes. Tyson Cecka and Colin MacDonald of Parkour Visions offered their superhero like talents for the shoot at Gas Works Park.
My goal was to capture a sense of power and energy that is associated with parkour. Big ups to my man Jesse for working the lighting and Parkour Visions for the talent. If you haven’t checked out their gym on Nickerson I suggest you do so! Images are available for purchase on Getty’s website. Check out the rest of the images in the gallery.
Tony and Andy in Plain, Washington.
The boys and I at Emerald have been pretty busy the last couple of weeks so it was time to for a getaway. We were graciously hosted by our buddy, Andy, in Plain, Washington. It was nice to be in a different environment despite my weakness to cold weather. The weekend went by quick but the snow, brews, and change of scenery did us good!
During the summer my old boss and mentor, Russ Kendall, asked me to shoot the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden for The Bellingham Herald. I took these Instax Minis in between shooting for the daily. It was fun playing with instant film again and made me appreciate the fun part about photography. Totally addicting. I suggest you purchase one yourself! Take a closer look here.
