Big Spread in Portland Spaces Premier Issue

It’s not often you get to shoot a feature for the premier of a new magazine. But, that’s just what I did this month. Portland Spaces launched on January 10th, 2008. The Portland home + lifestyle focused magazine features some great articles on homes, design, green living, and products. For my piece “Desirables”, we shot one stylized opener and 3 pages worth of product knock-outs. The spread came out awesome and I wanted to share the first page with you. Thanks to Jen Davison and Rachel DeSchepper for their art direction, product wrangling, and superior wallpapering skills. Also, big thanks to Jason Blackheart for coming to me early on about this project. Happy to be a part of the team.

December Gigs

Fall was very busy around here and it all culminated with a big month of published work in December. I was in four separate magazines and also shot all the photography for a website for a new commercial client (I did the web design and code, too. Yeah, I geek out like that sometimes). Here’s are some samples and tearsheets that I could get.

Portland Bride & Groom Feature: Glass Acts
Portland Bride & Groom Feature: Glass Acts
I shot an entire feature on wedding glassware in my studio for Portland Bride & Groom. The Art Director was Samantha Gardner. It was quite a challenge to light all the various colors and shapes, but the end result was awesome. Check out the Winter 07/Spring 08 issue on newsstands now for the full article on page 89.

Portland Monthly: Pedicabs Lolo Restaurant - Food + Drink Opener Wonder Drink - Pour
Portland Monthly: December Departments
This was a cool issue for me. I got to shoot all three of my specialties (people, architecture, and product) for the regular departments. I shot 2 pedicab drivers in the studio for “Mudroom”, an interior of Lolo Restaurant for “Food + Drink” section opener, and Wonder Drink Sparkling Kombucha Tea for the “Pour” column.

Unless you work for a hotel or a resort, you might not get this magazine. Even still, this is one my favorite portraits I’ve taken this year and I will probably add it to my LIFE portfolio. I shot it in studio using available light on simple gray background. You just can’t beat being on the northeast corner of a building. Plus, we’re on the second floor, so the light is consistent pretty much all day.

Velvet the Dog - Best of 2007
Seattle: Best of 2007 – Velvet the Dog
Matt Bryant, his dog velvet, and couple of their friends were hiking Mt. Hood last winter and fell in to a ravine and got stuck during a snowstorm. They were all rescued safely and the rescuers attributed their overnight survival to the warmth that Velvet gave everyone. She was a great dog to photograph and Matt was the nicest guy you ever met.

This was a huge project for me. Not only did I shoot the model, the products, and all the detail photographs, but I also did all the web design. I’ve been doing web design since 1998, so it’s something I still do from time to time. Fem-ology is new natural organic feminine care care product line made right here in Oregon. The owner Carrie Von Keil is just starting out and I wish here the best on her new venture!

We’ll that’s about it. Like I said, it was a busy fall and I’m looking forward to a busy first quarter 2008. Should have some more gig updates soon.
