Our advanced visual journalism class went on a class field trip to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island this weekend. The assignment was to gather multimedia from an outdoor sculpture park on the island. I was with a great group and the actually traveling was the best part. It has been awhile since I got to ride a ferry. They are quite magical. Here are some random fun photos of the trip.

I am currently doing an internship with Western’s University of Communications as a campus photographer. We finally had some nice weather and I found a hula-hooper down at the park. A great past time long forgotten, I’m pretty sure it’s making a comeback.
After about a month of craptastic weather we finally caught a break. I ventured off to Blanchard Mountain and saw these paragliders flying through the air (of course I neglected to bring my long glass). It was amazing to see these guys soaring through the sky like birds. Catching air currents to gain altitude as they dipped up and down from the earth. Apparently you can spend all day in the sky if the weather permitted. I did not realize that they actually take off and land on the mountain. I shot a couple of frames of Bellingham native Roger Brock, just after he touched down on the mountain. Hopefully I’ll get to photograph him again in the future. Click on for more Continue reading
I had the opportunity to produce a photo illustration to supplement a story about nudists for the upcoming Klipsun magazine.

I tried multiple variations on this concept, but I found that a silhouette with some simple lighting worked best.
