Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready raised the Pearl Jam flag on top of the Space Needle Jan. 22, 2018. Pearl Jam announced The Home Shows, 2 concerts in Seattle on August 8 & 10 at Safeco Field! The shows aim to unite the community to help alleviate homelessness in the city of Seattle. I do promo work for Do206 and LiveNation and I heard they were raising a flag atop the Space Needle, so I rushed to my photo spot and snapped a photo. Combined that with the press release and social posts and it went viral thanks to Do206 and Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam retweet Do206 and reposted my photo on Instagram. Not a bad start to the week and it’s always great to help spread awareness to an amazing show for a great cause.
It rains in Seattle a lot, which is great for the vegetations, but not so much for skateboarders. I spend quite a bit of time in my parking garage skateboarding during the winter. Recently, I heard Subsonic Skateboards was hosting a garage session, so I decide to stop by with my camera. you can check out some of the photos here and full blog post over a Skate[SLATE].
2017 has a crazy year in the news and with politics, but that didn’t stop it from being a beautiful year through my lens. Here are some of my favorite photos captured in 2017! Seattle Women’s March The view of the Women’s March on Seattle with record setting crowds on Jan. 21st. Capitol Hill Rainbow A summer solstice sunset brought us an amazing rainbow over Capitol Hill. West Seattle Reflections The lights of Seattle always look the best from Alki Beach in my opinion. I think this photo supports that statement. Warm Summer Nights On The Waterfront It was a beautiful warm summer night on the Seattle Waterfront and I took a few photos and this was my favorite from the evening. Fall At Jose Rizal I spent quite a bit of time pushing leaves in the hole in the fence at Jose Rizal Park. I think it was worth it for this photo. Seahawks From The Sideline I was lucky enough to capture a coiuple of Seahawks games and one of my favorite photos was Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner talking on the sideline before the game. A Sad Day Everywhere The view of the Space Needle […]
I ventured to Volunteer Park in Seattle with Molly and Chris and their adorable daughter Ella for a quick family portrait session. We lucked out on some nice fall weather and wandered around the park to capture some portraits for their seasonal holiday card. Here’s a few photos below.
Fall in the Pacific Northwest is a thing of beauty. I spent quite a bit of time venturing around the greater Seattle area seeking out fiery foliage and fall colors. Below are just some of the images I captured around Seattle in fall 2017. I still have more to edit and will most likely be adding to this post in a couple days. Fall Colors Along Lake Washington A great place to capture some fall colors is around Lake Washington. The trees under I-90 and near Mount Baker Park are always beautiful to capture. Fall Colors Above I-90 Kubota Garden Fall Colors Kuboata Garden located in south Seattle offers changing colors, waterfalls and a relaxing walk through the Japanese style garden. Fall Colors & The Seattle Cityscape Fall Colors In West Seattle Fall colors in Ballard Fall Colors In Capitol Hill Fall Colors In Snoqualmie The Puppy Charlie And Fall Colors
I recently ventured south to Tacoma, Washington to capture some senior portraits of my godson Zach. It was my first time shooting in Wright Park and it was a true pleasure. The fountains, bridge, colorful trees and clean backgrounds made for a pretty good senior portrait session in my opinion. I always try and make sure I got photos the parents will enjoy and the senior. A few of my favorite are below!
In search of fall colors I decided to do some location scouting along I-90. I ventured to Snoqualmie and Franklin Falls to capture some photos and scope it out. I was not at the locations at the best time of the day and there was harsh lighting, but I had to capture a couple photos. I also ventured to Rockwood Farms to check the colors and Snoqualmie Falls to shoot a bit of video. A bunch of these photos and video were used on Do206.com for a Fall adventure guide you can see here. Naturally, I went skateboarding for a bit as well! Until next time!
I really enjoy skateboarding and longboarding and if you follow my social media you will see photos of me from time to time. For years I rode Sector 9 Longboards and never in my wildest dreams did I think they would post a photo of me on their socials. Well, they did and I was quite flattered to see my photo on their feeds. It took me quite a long time to land a boneless and when I did a plane just happened to be flying overhead that really made the photo unique in my opinion. For this photo I was shooting with an intravolemter and the camera would take a photo every .5 seconds and luckily I was able to capture it. On that note, thanks for posting Sector 9 and make sure to check out their products!
Recently the Minnesota Vikings reached out to me via Instagram to capture photos of a Minnesota Vikings helmet around Seattle to hype up the Minnesota vs Seahawks preseason game. I love sports and Seattle, so naturally I said yes. Below are some of the photos I captured and you can see more and an interview HERE. I also had the opportunity to capture some photos of the field at the Seahawks VS Vikings preseason game. I sure did miss having a 400mm f2.8, but I made due with the Sigma 150-600mm. I also tried out my new Sony A6500, which did fairly decent.
Seafair 2017 was an interesting one due to massive fires in British Columbia pushing smoke into Seattle and temperatures in the high 80s to 90s. Even with the hot temps and limited visibility the Blue Angels still took flight and I still ventured out to capture some photos of the annual airshow. The view from Kerry Park and the photographers and spectators waiting for the Blue Angels to pass. The rest of the photos were captured from a roof top in Capitol Hill. While I was capturing all of these photos my trusty photo assistant was sound asleep next to me. Hopefully, next year we will have better visibility, so we can actually see Mount Ranier when the Blue Angels fly.
