Imbibe Magazine – Summer Beers

Imbibe Summer Beers Tearsheet 1

Had some fun with a ring flash and gridded softboxes to shoot this collection of fine summer brews for Imbibe Magazine’s July/August 09 issue. The goal of this shoot was to make the beer really pop off the page and look super crisp. A ring flash is used for fashion a lot, so it had a really nice high key light effect on the bottles. I love the way the sweat gets all shiny and sparkly. Special thank to art director Kate Madden for letting me explore this technique.

Portland Spaces Summer 2009 Cover Feature & More

Hot of the press, the latest issue of Portland Spaces features some beautiful interiors and furniture from Portland based designers. I had the pleasure to photograph two stories for this issue and both turned out fantastic. It also gave me a glimpse into the design scene here in Portland and I have to say it is top notch.

Jason Blackheart brilliantly art directed both of these features and he did an amazing job on the design, too. The cover shot features Andee Hess of Osmose.

B is for… Barbour

Had to do it. It’s not often a feature story you photograph starts with a big letter of your last name. In this case, the March 09 cover feature of Portland Monthly start’s with the title,”B is for Bacon”. This food piece was an awesome assignment to shoot. Not only did I discover many of the best breakfast spots in Portland, I got to spread my creative wings and shoot it my way. The art directors, Hector Sanchez and Mike Novak, really had a vision for this piece and my still life object work was the right fit for their concept.

What made the job really fun was eating little bits of it all along the way. And I can tell you, the Reggie Deluxe is everything you’d think it would be.

Here are the tearsheets from the magazine. Now go out and buy it! Better yet, subscribe to this great magazine and support an organization that’s really doing something unique in the world of city publications.

May/June Desirables in Portland Spaces

I had a lot of fun shooting this one with Jen Davison and Rachel DeSchepper for Portland Spaces. The shot’s really about the product, but there’s so much life in Joanna’s face that it really makes it something special. I also love the bold color tones all complimenting each other. Fun stuff!
