How’d You Do That? Travel Portland Edition

If you happen into any local hospitality destination, you might see the above shot I took for Travel Portland. Art Directed by the incredibly talented Thomas Cobb, this slick city tour guide magazine really stands out. I know we keep them in our house for years to show out of town guests what all the...

    The second one? (Which would be impressive!) 🙂ReplyCancel

      Nope! It was the first one actually. Timing the models walking and stopping traffic to get a clear shot of the streetcar was a real trick. I honestly didn’t think I would get it, but luck is all in the preparations.

      Thanks for commenting. And I’d be happy to make you a print. Let me know if you see anything you like. I have more personal work at http://www.ides-of-may.comReplyCancel

From Bacon to Beavers – 2009 in Review

This last year I spent a lot of energy narrowing down my specialties: architecture, lifestyle, and still life. I like to think of myself as a specific generalist. Between these three specialties, I can handle almost any kind of shoot. But getting a consistent and distinct look between all three specialties is the real trick....

Portland Monthly July 09 Cover

For the cover and feature opener of this month’s Portland Monthly, I traveled to Oxbow Park in Greasham, OR. The model in the shot is famed sport kayaker (and heck of a nice guy) Sam Drevo of eNRG Kayak. I’ve met Sam a couple years ago at the Portland RedBull Illume opening. When I got...

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...

    I’m curious: did you use the view camera for the food shots? I just completed an internship at Polara and I discovered that Michael uses the view camera with his food shots, with that great control of dof.ReplyCancel

      Hey Matt, thanks for commenting. I actually shot all this with a Canon 5D Mark II. I used either a 50mm f/1.4 or my go to 24-70mm f/2.8. Since all these shots were pretty flat on the film plane of the camera, I could get away without using a view camera. Had we been going for that three quarter angle down look, a view camera would have been ideal for focus and depth control. Pro Photo Supply rents a Toyo view camera with a Leaf digital back and three lenses. I use it whenever I shoot architecture, but it would be great for shooting food.ReplyCancel
