Huge Portfolio Update!

Ahh… new work on the website. It feels good. I’ve been super busy the past few years, not only with work, but with family, too. My son, Odin, was born in December of 2012 and my daughter, Teagan, was born in December of 2014. During that stretch of time, I also had some of my busiest years to date with shoots from so many great clients like Hunter Douglas, Country Living, OMSI, The Joinery, Jessica Helgerson Interior Design, Boora, Mahlum, Nike, and Rejuvenation to name a few. On top of that, we decided to move from Portland, OR to Charlottesville, VA to be closer to family last April. Yeah, crazy busy.

Since moving back to the East Coast, I’ve been traveling everywhere for work: California (3 times), Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia… I’ve traveled more for work this year than I have in the past 5 years. I feel very lucky to have a loving and supportive wife (and in laws) that’s allowed me to continue my career on the road.

Anyway, I finally found time to get a lot of new work online and I have SEVEN new portfolios to share with you. Quickly, they are Interiors, Exteriors, Details, Education, Workspaces, Lifestyle, Food Culture, and Food & Drink. This body of work represents the very best of my 13 year career. Here are some highlights and clicking on a photo will take you to the full gallery.

Food Photography Tips & Tricks on Photoshelter

Croissant & Latte

Lauren Margolis posted a great piece today on Photoshelter’s blog with some food photography tips from photographers like yours truly.

Food photography, however, plays a huge role across many different businesses. Previously limited to the food industry (restaurants, markets, specialty food stores) and food-dedicated publications, food photography now spans a wide breath of editorial publications and commercial/advertising campaigns. Food is most often associated with comfort and happiness, so it’s no surprise that clients like American Express and CNN are now seeking food photographers.

Bottom line? No matter what kind of photographer you call yourself, it’s advantageous to have some food photography skills under your belt. You’ll also want to stand out from the crowd of amateur food photographers – showing clients that you have the experience and know-how to deliver the best images.

Meet Wildwood Again

Wildwood Restaurant

Wildwood Restaurant is an iconic farm to table fine dining establishment in Portland that’s recently gone through a wonderful rebirth thanks to restauranteur Cana Flug of Besaw’s fame. I first met Cana when she hired me to shoot an image library for Besaw’s. I loved the shots I got from that shoot and working with Cana was a total blast.  Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to shoot for her again and, once more, I absolutely love the work I got from this gig. Here are some of my favs:
