UPDATED: Coronavirus Photoshoot Policy as of 8/3/2020

MoPOP Seattle by Frank Ghery
 
As a small business owner, I’m writing you today to let you know we take the current events of COVID-19 very seriously and want to outline what we are doing to protect you, your team, your clients, as well as myself and my team members.
 
I also understand the current economic situation may impact you in the short or long term and want to offer some flexible terms for your upcoming shoots.
 

Coronavirus Photo Policy

As of today, we can only perform shoots on assignment from media or real estate related photography (architecture, exteriors, and interiors with people at appropriate social distance.)  Here are our guidelines:
  • Photographer, crew, talent, and client must wear facemasks during the entire photoshoot. If talent is on set, talent may remove facemask as long as they are 6ft from anyone else.
  • Temperature check on set the day of shoot of all crew and clients.
  • All equipment shall be wiped down with antibacterial cleaning agent prior to use.
  • Hands washed and/or sanitized on arrival to location/set.
  • Shoes off and stored outside on all residential shoots.
  • Temporary no physical contact policy (handshakes, high fives, etc).
  • Photographer and crew must remain 6ft apart as much as possible
  • Remote art direction can occur but will limit the scope of shoot.
  • Hand washing before and after all meals and snacks.
  • Meals are to be eaten outdoors and with 6ft of space between people.
  • 24-hour cancellation fee waived if illness occurs.

Flexible Payment Terms

Because of the uncertain state of the economy, I am offering the following terms to reduce your upfront expenses on future photoshoots.

  • 12 Month Interest-Free Payment Plan – You may opt to spread the costs of a shoot over the next twelve months interest-free. After twelve months, payment is due in full or a 10% finance charge will be incurred on the balance every month.

  • 2, 5, & 10 Day Retainer Packages – If you know you have multiple shoots to do over the next year, I can create a custom retainer package and discount all fees by 20% (except travel costs).

  • Subscription Package – If you need ongoing photography, you can subscribe to a monthly service plan and pay a flat amount each month. The Monthly Subscription Fee ranges from $5000 to $500 depending on the number of shoots and usage. Feel free to contact me to set up a time to discuss.

I am watching the situation closely and will be sure to let you know if anything changes with our policies.

All the best and stay healthy,

Lincoln

Luxe Magazine Cover Feature

2018 has started off great with this amazing cover feature I shot for January’s Pacific Northwest edition of Luxe Interiors + Design. Designed by husband and wife duo Holly Freres (JHL Design) and David Horning (MOA Architecture), this ultra cool coastal getaway was so much fun to shoot. I really admired the contrast of modern architecture and interior design with the natural rugged coastal surroundings. It was very zen and balanced. The whole house felt very cozy and the views stunning. Both Holly and David were there with me to help style the shots and clean the windows (thanks David).

True story: Holly texted me the day she got her copy head over heels that we made the cover. I was so excited for her and very proud to share these spreads with you. The full gallery is available in the WORK section of my website as well.

Thomas Lauderdale – Portland Monthly November 2013

Tailoring Thomas - Portland Monthly November 2013

Here is a really cool shoot I did for last month’s issue of Portland Monthly. Thomas Lauderdale, of Pink Martini fame, has this amazing house/building right in downtown Portland. It recently went through a huge restoration and remodel led by artist and designer Philip Iosca. It’s a pretty stunning place to call home, but I could see how fun it would be live here. Thomas and Philip were both really wonderful to work with on the shoot. The three story building made for some logistical problems, but nothing you can’t fix with a pair of assistants. Art directed by Michael Novak, he used a lot of my photos for the final piece and I love the big spreads he designed. One of my finer shoots for Portland Monthly.

The rest of the spreads are below and a gallery of the images on their own. If you missed the print version, you can read it online here. Rock on!

(Note: I didn’t gray out that one ad on the bottom right because it’s one of my shots I did recently for my great client Green Hammer. Advertising and Editorial living in harmony.)

 

 

JHL Design Featured in GRAY

Also from the December/January issue of GRAY, a shoot I did for JHL Design got the glossy treatment with this six page spread. The double truck kitchen shot looked killer in print. I was really happy for JHL to get published. I shot  quite  a few projects for them last year and Holly and Jasmine do excellent work. Plus, they were a lot of fun to work with. JHL Design just launched a new site and you should check it out: www.jhldesign.com

Back to Back Cover Features for GRAY

After a little blogging hiatus, it feels good to be writing again about what I’ve been up to lately. Got some good stuff in the queue covering personal work, photo business stuff, and lots of tearsheets. In fact, here are two cover features for GRAY Magazine that just ran back to back December/January and February/March.

GRAY Magazine December / January Cover Feature - Gothic Office by Jessica Helgerson

This cover features the awesomely moody Gothic Office I shot for Jessica Helgerson Interior Design last year. I was really happy to see the shoot run in print. GRAY does a really nice job on their printing and the shots really pop off the page.

Then for the February/March issue, GRAY picked up a shoot I did a few years ago that I loved. Many of these shots are in my portfolio.

Oregon Home – Houseboat 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.
