There was one heck of a football game Sept. 26, 2014 at Civic Stadium in Bellingham. It looked like Sehome was going to run away with the game, but that’s not how it all played out. Blaine made one heck of a comeback and took the win in the 4th Quarter. Here’s some words by The Bellingham Herald sports editor Dave Rasbach… There’s no disputing the raw speed of Sehome junior Taylor Rapp, but as quick as he is, he wasn’t the fastest thing on the Civic Stadium turf on Friday, Sept. 26. That honor belongs to the emotional roller coaster Blaine receiver Anthony Ball was on in the closing minutes of the Class 2A/3A Northwest Conference game between the Mariners and Borderites. With about two minutes remaining in regulation and his team trailing by six points, Ball broke behind the Sehome defensive backfield, hauled in a pass from quarterback Nathan Kramme and was running seemingly unchallenged toward the end zone and a 67-yard touchdown that would have tied the game and given his team a chance to take the lead with an extra point. Just a split second later, Ball’s dreams were dashed when Rapp refused to give up […]
Been kinda busy hunting for apartments in Seattle, buying a new car and preparing for the new job at DB Skimboards/DB Longboards, but I need to catch up on some blog posts. I also redid my website over the course of the weekend. I have really enjoyed my time capturing football photos this season thus far and before the season began I had the opportunity to meet some of the players. I spent a week capturing portraits of Whatcom County high school football players for the 2014 Bellingham Herald Football Preview section. I also ended up designing the cover of the special section also (you can see that above). Below you can see some of the portraits that ran inside the special section.
I made the trip to New York in the spring and finally got through all of my photos. This post featured photos of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and more. Here’s a post featuring my favorite landscapes and cityscapes captured while visit the Big Apple. All photos are available for prints and commercial use.
I have been capturing photos of the Bellingham Bells baseball team all summer for The Bellingham Herald. Last season the team won the West Coast League Championship beating the Corvallis Knights 3-2. The Bells finish the season 41-18, the best record in Bells history and the fourth time in WCL history that a team reached 40 wins. It was a fun season to capture photos of and I learned a lot about how to capture baseball. Here’s some photos from the championship game.

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 also have captured photos at the festival and have been providing them with photos for marketing purposes. Here are some photos I captured while at Summer Meltdown 2014 featuring StrFkr, Black Joe Lewis, Whitehorse Mountain, of friends and the campground.
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 had the opportunity to capture motocross photos for the first time at the Hannegan Speedway in Bellingham. I was only able to photograph two of the races, but it was a fun and challenging thing to shoot. Here’s a couple of my favorite photos and you can view the whole gallery HERE.
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. Mount Rainier over Tacoma: Buy a print On the way back to Bellingham I made a stop at Kerry Park in Seattle and also captured a few photos of the Seattle skyline with Mt Rainier in it.
