Growing up at least once a summer my parents would take us to Cannon Beach, Oregon for a vacation. I have fond memories of skimboarding, riding bikes and running with dogs around the giant Haystack Rock. This spring for my mom’s 60th birthday we traveled down to Cannon Beach for a family gathering. Naturally, I captured some photos while we were there. We drove across the 4 mile Astoria–Megler on our way through Astoria and took a look at the houses featured in the movie Goonies from afar. We stayed at a spot just south of the Wayfair with a small patio that was a great place to put my Sector 9 longboard to use when the sun came out. Naturally, some family photos were captured and I created a gif to show that wonderful process. At this point for family photos I just compose, get the proper settings and focus point and let the built in intravalomter do the rest. My mom likes lots of photos, so it is really is the easiest route at this point. After family-photo fun time with the family and dogs I skimboarded up and down the beach. The Oregon beaches have really hard sand […]
I recently had the opportunity to capture photos for Boberck with one of my longtime friends Anna Douglas. Boberck is a family-ran business built as one of South America’s finest department stores. Since 1970 they have been perfecting crossing oceans to bring their customers one of a kind products. They specialize in German leather jackets that are light and waterproof and that is what my shoot with Anna focused on as you can see below. They also did a blog post about the shoot that you can read about over on there website (CLICK HERE). Take a look at a few behind the scenes shots and then see the finished products, now available on the website. New photos up on our site!

I covered the Dinner and a DJ: Vol 1 for Do206.com at Ciudad in Seattle. The event was hosted by Noodle Gang Seattle and Grace Kelly PR. The dinner featured guest chef, Aaron Willis, and DJs Soffos and Ca$h Bandicoot. Below are some photos of the space, food and event along with a video. A full write up can be found at Do206.com HERE.
Spencer from the Seattle band, My Cartoon Heart, recently contacted me about capturing some photos of their show at the Conor Byrne Pub and a few promo portraits. I love capturing live music, so for a small fee I agreed to come capture the show. Before the show I met the duo and we ventured around Ballard for 15 minutes to capture some promo photos for future use. For all of these I used a portable ring flash and a 17-35mm lens. After the quick portrait session we ventured back inside the pub for the show. It was a good time and their mix of original music and covers were a great way to start the weekend. Check out some of the photos below. You can hear My Cartoon Heart’s music at their website and by following any of the links below. Soundcloud BandCamp Facebook
2016 was an interesting one for me, but I managed to capture some pretty decent photos along the way. For my top 10 photos of 2016 I tried to pick photos that I liked that also were decently popular in my social feeds. 10. Seattle from Alki Beach I captured this photo from Alki Beach in West Seattle after a Seahawks game when you could barely see the giant 12 lit up in the Seattle skyline. 9. MoPop Reflection I spent a decent amount of time waiting for the monorail to pass by and get the timing right for a reflection in the MoPop Museum (formerly the EMP). It was worth it. After I got this photo my friend Blake helped me get the skate photo mentioned above. 8. Seattle Central Library The Seattle Central Library is one of my favorite places to wander in Seattle. The day before Valentines day my girlfriend Alyne and I wandered around the library and I captured this photo. 7. Spring at UW It was a dismal rainy morning, but I decided to go to the quad at UW to try and capture some of the spring color before the crowds appeared. For this […]
The Seattle Sounders beat Toronto in the MLS Cup Championship in a crazy game that ended in a shootout. I went to 5 games over the course of the year and one playoff game. At the beginning of the season I never would have imagined they would win the MLS Cup. After the Sounders won the city of Seattle celebrated. The Space Needle changed colors and became a Sounders blue and green. On Tuesday, Seattle had a parade to celebrate the victory. I covered the Seattle Sounders victory parade through downtown Seattle for Do206.com and you can see all the photos and video HERE and a few below. If you are interested in any of my photos for product use and/or licensing do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks to my friend and Seattle Sounders FC season ticket holder Matthew Sursely I actually went to several games this season and enjoyed it quite a bit. I ventured down the the celebratory parade and captured some video and photos for Do206.
I don’t work in the skate industry anymore, but I still skateboard and I do miss being involved. I am going to start doing web development work and content creation with SkateSlate. I have a few ideas for some interviews I am going to start working on and a few video side projects. With that being said, thanks to SkateSlate editor, Les Robertson, for taking the time to interview me for the magazine. Read the full Interview HERE A few photos and video from the Interview:
It has not snowed before Christmas in Seattle for at least a few years. That changed this week. It clear and cold for a few days and you could see the snow in the mountains piling up. And then it finally snowed. Twice actually. Once where it stuck around for about 2 hours and then disappeared. Then it snowed again where it stuck around over night and then started to rain in the morning. Kids ride bikes in the snow, built snowmen in the park, and naturally there were several car accidents on the hills of Capitol Hill. Luckily, it started to melt before the Friday morning commute.
