I was given the task to create some portraits for the Ski to Sea special section that The Bellingham Herald puts out each year. I used a ring flash and a random wall in the basement of The Bellingham Herald building to create all of these portraits. I also had a bunch of photos from last year’s race run in the special section and will be back up on the mountain covering the cross country and downhill legs of the race again this year.
I had the opportunity to capture engagement portraits of Molly and Chris in Seattle at the beginning of April. We went to a few different locations and it was a pretty good time to say the least. I am looking forward to being their wedding photographer in the fall. Anyways, here’s some photos from the photo session.
I had to pleasure of spending the day with Tim and Katie to capture some portraits of them in Bellingham, Washington. This was my first engagement portraits session ever and I hope they like the photos. Here are a few of my favorites from the photo session.
I had the pleasure of meeting with the Bellingham Ceili Club for a photoshoot Wednesday evening in Bellingham. You can find out more information about the Ceili Club by going to their website BellinghamCeiliClub.com
My little brother is back from New York and my full family is actually together for the first time in a long time on Christmas. Instead of just taking a basic photo I decided to make a few portraits of my family this year and combine them into one photo. I also took a bunch of portraits for my brother while he was here. He is working on his improv/sketch comedy in New York, so while my dad was sleeping on the couch and my mom and sister were talking we made the short video below… And then we made another video using one of his ideas: Anyways…Merry Christmas from the McDonald family!
I have never really been a portrait photographer and over the past two months I have been reading every book I can on the subject and studying the art. I also purchased new SB 910 flashes, and other studio gear, so I can start creating portraits and perfect the art. I met with Dustin last night and gave my first serious attempt of capturing portraits that you can see here. I even tried some light writing techniques to get some more unique photos. If you are interested in getting some portraits done feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
