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.
It’s been a little quiet on the blog front lately. Apologies in full, just a very busy summer. I’m pleased to show you this latest set of tearsheets for a feature I shot for Oregon Home magazine.
This was a really great shoot and I had fun mixing up the architectural shots with some lifestyle moments and food details. I really enjoyed documenting the homeowner and her daughter preparing a traditional Chinese meal. Which we the got to eat during the lunch break. (It really seems like many of my shoots feature eating food. This is a good thing).
The home was designed by Richard Brown Architects and the shoot was styled and art directed by the one and only, Jon Taylor Carter. Enjoy! [Read more…] about Oregon Home – August / September Cover & Feature
If you’ve never been to Portland, you might not know of the copious amounts of houseboat communities. For this cover story for Oregon Home magazine, I got to visit three communites in the area. Each one was very different with it’s own set of character and charm. One common thread between them all, really nice people who love being on the water.
