I was asked by a friend to photograph Salon de DASSdance an event where I enjoyed an evening of live music, fine art, dance performances by DASSdance and the Can Can Castaways, a bar and free food. What more can a young boy ask for! Here are some shots from the amazing dance performances. The Salon is held the first Monday of the month at Washington Hall in the Central District. Come to the next one and buy me a drink!
The Emerald Collective, the photo collective I’m apart of with Jordan Stead, photographed Dubstep DJ Nero at the WaMu Theater in downtown Seattle for New Year’s Eve. The energy and the masses of people was incredible. After what seemed forever to get the proper credentials we were given free roam to cover the event. Thanks for looking.
After months of planning my friend Jordan Stead and I started The Emerald Collective. The best thing about working with Jordan is that the final product comes out better than I initially perceive. Lighting and overall concept are much easier to imagine when you have someone to bounce ideas off of. Here are a set of portraits we did of Western Washington University alumni at the Microsoft campus for WINDOW magazine. If you would like to check out some of our recent work please go to our blog.
My sister just got married last weekend. It was a great ceremony and I’m happy for the both of them. My buddy Rhys Logan photographed their wedding, cheers to him for hustling and accommodating my huge family! Here are their engagement photos I did for them at Seattle’s Gasworks Park.
Here are some shots from a maternity shoot I did for mother to be Tracey. She wanted to create a couple of thank you cards for friends and family that threw her a baby shower. It was Tracey’s idea to use some paint and decorate her belly. The color and the light was ideal. I used a shoot through-umbrella and the sun as a backlight, with some of the shots just using natural. I was pretty happy about the simple setup and for an energetic subject like Tracey. She is due towards the end of June. Congrats!
