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.

Just being in Portland, you can’t help but get excited about cycling. We’re pretty famous for it now. It’s no secret I’m a fan of cycling and I get kick out of shooting races. It’s fun to capture action and the lifestyle surrounding the sport. Also, cyclist are really into gear and, as a photographer, I can totally relate.

When Team Oregon approached me to be there official photographer this year, I was flattered and immediately said yes. These folks are a great bunch and they are one of the biggest teams in the state. As part of my sponsorship, I did this first shoot of their Category 1 and 2 Riders. These guys are the Best of the Best. In addtion to portraits of the riders, I photographed them doing a team ride shooting from inside the trunk of hatchback on Sauvie Island. Cool stuff indeed. Here are some of my favorites:
