I have been friends with Austin Santiago for quite some time and I had the pleasure of capturing some photos of his 30th birthday at the Wild Buffalo. The night featured the music of Manatee Commune who dropped a new song and Jakubi an amazing band from Australia. Post by Equal Motion.
I have never captured photos of a rodeo before, but that all changed this week when I was sent to the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden, Washington for The Bellingham Herald. Due to an early deadline I was only able to capture photos of the first 30 minutes. You can view the full photo gallery here at The Bellingham Herald and a few below: Photo Gallery
I have attended the Summer Meltdown Festival for the past three years and for the past two years I built and maintained their website SummerMeltdownFest.com.

I had the opportunity to capture photos for The Bellingham Herald of Orlando Magic point guard’s Luke Ridnour’s basketball camp in Blaine, Washington. Ridnour grew up in Blaine and has played for multiple NBA teams ranging from the Sonics (RIP) to the Minnesota Timberwolves over his 12-year career. It was fun to meet him and watch how excited the kids were to be at the camp. You can read the full story here: FULL STORY And you can view all the photos here: PHOTO GALLERY Video:

I made the trip down to Portland with my girlfriend Alyne to get away for the weekend and I thoroughly pondered not taking a camera with me. Alyne said “you know you will regret if you don’t bring a camera” and she was right. In-between eating at Voodoo Donuts and sampling some beer at Deschutes Brewery I took a little bit of time to capture a long exposure photo of Hawthorne Bridge and the Portland cityscape over the Wilamette River. Portland Cityscape: Buy a print Hawthorne Bridge: Buy a print I also made the trip down to Tacoma this week to meet with the DB Skimboards guys to talk about some upcoming projects. The view of Mt Rainier was so clear that day I had to take a few photos and the one below is from Ruston Way.

For the past 6 years I have been attending and capturing the DB Pro skimboarding contest that takes place at Dash Point in Federal Way, Washington. Here’s my video edit and a few photos from the contest. The 2014 DB Skimboards Pro/AM took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Dash Point, in Federal Way, Washington. To the surprise of no one Isaac Thomas took the pro division win again with his brother Josiah Thomas taking first in the amateur division. Bree Staab won the women’s division and Reed Shumpert won the amateur division. Outside of the standings there was a ton of solid tricks landed by the likes of Devin Poulton and his madonna and Cardo Vega and the benihana. Adam Ballaam took 2nd in the pro division and although he didn’t have as many clean landings as Isaac, Adam put on one hell of a show. Cody Mauer from Utah also stood out by going big and landing a ton of tricks. Ruei Chiu from Taiwan also competed, so the contest had an international presence outside of the United States and Canada, which is always great to see.

The Bellingham Herald sent me to the Copper Hog to capture photos of locals watching the U.S. v. Germany World Cup soccer game Thursday morning. Over 100 people showed up at the Copper Hog to watch the game and the restaurant/bar was full of all kinds of soccer fans. Although the U.S. lost to Germany 1-0 the U.S. still moved on to the knockout round of 16, so soccer fans celebrated and continued to day drink.
