The Washington Park Arboretum sits along Lake Washington in Seattle, Washington and it is a beautiful place to explore in the Seattle time. I recently took a walk with my girlfriend Alyne and dog Charlie along the Marine Trail and captured a few photos. The parks 230 acres offers a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else and this trail was beautiful. The trail weaves around the shoreline and underneath the I-90 bridge. You can see lots of boats, canoes and jet ski’s roaming the lake along with a great view of the Montlake Bridge that carries State Route 513 (Montlake Boulevard) over Seattle’s Montlake Cut—part of the Lake Washington Ship Canal—connecting Montlake and the University District. The Montlake Bridge is celebrated as the site of boating season’s “opening day” festivities the first Saturday in May and today it was obvious boating season was in full-effect. Anyways, if you haven’t walked along this trail and live in Seattle make sure to.
When I still lived in Bellingham and was looking for places to live in Seattle my main objective was to find a place close to Volunteer Park with a view. I did find that perfect apartment and have really enjoyed my placement in the city and roof access. It’s where I have captured a vast majority of my Seattle cityscapes photos this year. Saturday and Sunday I took advantage my rooftop view and captured a few photos and video of the Blue Angels flying around the Seattle skyline. All the dogs in the apartment also had a small party while the humans watched jets fly by. Next year I need to rent a 400mm f2.8 and try to capture photos from a different vantage point.
In all honesty I was not planning on capturing photos of the Blue Moon since I new it was not going to be actually blue and I have plenty of photos of past super moon’s already. But once the sun went down and I knew the moon was about to rise I could not help myself. Here’s a few photos I captured of the Blue Moon rising over the foothills out side of Seattle, Washington.
I went for a weekend adventure to Lopez Island with my girlfriend and a few friends on Memorial Day weekend. We got to the ferry early even with the reservation just to be sure since the San Juan Island ferries are alway super busy on holiday weekends. Lopez Island was bustling with holiday tourists on Memorial Day weekend, but the small island didn’t seem too packed besides bikers filling the roadways. The first day we ventured to Iceberg Point along the winding paths to capture a few photos and watch the sun drop below the horizon. The next day since I now work for DB Longboards we also filmed a little cruiser edit for DB Longboards (you can see below) and captured a bunch of promo photos. Sunday we ventured to Spencer Spit when the sun appeared on the holiday weekend and let the Charlie the dog run until he could run no further. One of my favorite parts of Lopez Island is the abundance of bald eagles all over the island. A majority of the time the eagles would watch people ride by on bikes and just take it easy in the tree. One eagle was even especially nice […]
It has been a beautiful spring in the Pacific Northwest. Every Saturday I usually venture out to one of the local parks in Seattle and here is a bunch of photos from those mini adventures. Some of the places these photos were captured at are 15th street, Washington Park Arboretum, Seward Park. And a little more detailed view of the spring colors in Seattle. Another fun thing to do at Seward Park is longboard. My girlfriend Alyne and I grabbed our DB Longboards and cruised around the loop and along the waterline of Lake Washington. You can see more of my longboard cruising Seattle series at DBLongboards.com here.
When I took this photo I had no idea it would go viral at all. Pretty excited about it and if you are interested in a print. If you are interested in a print feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can buy one directly from my 500px Art account by clicking this link. 500px Art My favorite posts thus far have been the reposts by Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. Good Morning America even reposted it! And on that note…GO SEAHAWKS!
The Seattle Seahawks are on their way to their second Super Bowl and I could not be more stoked. After having the opportunity to capture a game on the field this season and talking briefly with Doug Baldwin and Pete Carroll I could not be more of a fan than I ever have in my life. The Seahawks vs Packers game was easily the most amazing football I have ever watched and I have watched it in its entirety again already. Seattle and all the 12s go all out to support the Seahawks and here are some of the photos I have captured over the past couple week around the city of Seattle. Go Hawks! And below is one of my photo of a crowded CenturyLink field I captured way back in 2010. Tomorrow for Blue Friday I plan on posting a bunch of my favorite photos I captured on the field while at the Seahawks game this season.

Although I no longer work at The Bellingham Herald one of my last projects there was putting together a 2015 calendar. I am in Seattle now I haven’t seen the physical calendar yet, but I have heard it turned out well and they are selling the calendars for $3 at The Bellingham Herald customer service office or you can buy it online by CLICKING HERE. The Herald released the 2015 calendar featuring 11 of my photos along with the cover (Fellow photographer Phil Dwyer snagged October’s fall color photo). Below you can see all the photos that ran in the calendar categorized by month with the description the editorial staff at The Bellingham Herald wrote. January – Bald eagles live in northwest Washington year-round. Good places to look for them include Deming Homestead Eagle Park, Birch Bay State Park, and the Skagit River Bald Eagle Interpretive Center in Rockport. February – Mt. Baker Ski Area is a popular starting point backcountry skiers and snowboarders, but they must have proper equipment and must know about avalanche risks. March – Berries, potatoes and other crops contribute to the bounty of Whatcom County farms. April – Cherry blossoms add gentle hues to the […]
A few recent Seattle cityscape and landscape photos I captured since I moved to Seattle in mid-December 2014. A fair amount of these photo were captured from my roof top in Capitol Hill and others just during my commute to work. Now that I am finally settled in to my apartment I am excited to start exploring more and capturing the Seattle photos I always wanted to. If you are interested in prints or using any of these for commercial purposes feel free to email me at email@example.com or check out my 500px account by CLICKING HERE.

It was my first year bringing in the new year while living in Seattle and I just happen to have a great view of the Space Needle from my apartment rooftop in Capitol Hill. Here’s a few photos I captured last night of the fireworks shooting off of the Space Needle. It was the first time I saw it in person and I gotta say it was much cooler than I anticipated. Some of these photos have been very popular on Instagram to my surprise and if anyone wants prints or to use them for promotional use feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy 2015 Everyone!
