Ground Kontrol

Twenty Eleven – A Year of Work

I’m a little late for an end of year review, but here it is none the less. Speaking purely from a financial point of view, 2011 was a lot like 2010 in that it was way better than 2009, but not quite as good as 2008. However, the photographs I created in 2011 are some of my best yet and I’ve never had more fun being a photographer. I really feel like my style and approach are starting to gel and I’m looking forward to what 2012 and beyond brings. Here are some of my favorite shots from last year.

Thank you to all my clients for making this year so great. You all are a truly a pleasure to work for and I look forward to many more projects together.

Also, thank you to all the stylists, models, assistants, art directors, photo editors, art buyers, and marketing directors I’ve worked with this year. The success of all these shoots wouldn’t have been possible without your collaboration.

Finally, a special shout out to Justin Tunis and Daniel Cronin for being two excellent go to assistants. Thank you for your hard work, your professionalism on set, and being easy to travel with. I’ll be calling you soon.

Ground Kontrol 3.0

Very excited to share this next shoot. Ground Kontrol is one my all time favorite places to go in Portland. It’s an arcade filled with old school classics and also has the biggest pinball gameroom in the Pacific Northwest. Every time I go, it’s like a fountain of youth and makes me feel like a kid again; stoked to have pocket full of quarters and plenty of time to kill. After 5pm, the arcade turns into a bar and then you can rack up some high scores while sipping on some tasty microbrews. Oh yes, it’s a lot of fun.
