I live in Capitol Hill and have been celebrating Pride each year and this year I even built out a full Guide To Pride for Do206 and Carter Subaru and created some promo videos. I ventured out to capture some photos of the Capitol Hill and Seattle Center Pridefests last weekend and here’s a round up of photos of Pride 2018 in Seattle. A few scenes from the Capitol Hill Pridefest. A few scenes from the Seattle Center Pridefest and Pride Parade. And my dog Charlie celebrating Pride. He was a trooper and braved the crowds on Sunday.
I had the opportunity to capture photos of the MARVEL: Universe of Super Heroes at MoPop in Seattle for Do206.com and my nerdy self LOVED it. I got there early right at 10:15am, so it wouldn’t be very crowded and was still the 7th person in the exhibit. The intro video about the history of Marvel even brought a tear to my eye since Marvel comics impacted me so much growing up and I still read them to this day. One of my prized childhood positions is owning the first Wolverine comic books (issues 1-4) and to see some of the artwork on display. It was cool to see some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe wardrobes and to read about the origin stories of some of the heros. I didn’t want to include too many photos because you need to go see it for yourself! Spider-Man was my favorite part, so I animated this photo I captured of the exhibit you can see below. And on that note, until next time friends!
I spend quite a bit of time venturing to different parks and trails around Seattle to walk my dog, take photos and enjoy a little bit of nature. I created a guide featuring the Best Walks In Seattle over on Do206.com and wanted to list a few of my favorites here as well. Mercer Slough Nature Park Located in Bellevue, the Mercer Slough Nature Park offers a sizable wildland escape right in the city of Bellevue. The park offers 7.1 miles of hiking area, a canoe trail, seasonal blueberry farm, picnic areas, restrooms, the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center and more. Seattle Waterfront When it comes to generating heaping amounts of city view jealousy few sites are quite as valuable as the Seattle Waterfront. Seriously, after seeing months of grey, just getting in a five second view of the Puget Sound ringed by the tree filled/snow capped Cascade mountains makes you realize just how good we have it. Thats why we like to hit up the Waterfront trail by Myrtle Edwards park which has both bike and pedestrian paths that include SAM’s Olympic Sculpture Park as well as access to the classic waterfront and shops. Discovery Park When most people […]
I recently teamed up with Do206 and Abercrombie & Fitch for a branded content advertising campaign. I did some research, captured photos and video for the campaign and created an online guide. Not only was the guided content received well, but Abercrombie renewed their contract with Do206. I couldn’t be happier to help that relationship grow and expand with my content.
Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready raised the Pearl Jam flag on top of the Space Needle Jan. 22, 2018. Pearl Jam announced The Home Shows, 2 concerts in Seattle on August 8 & 10 at Safeco Field! The shows aim to unite the community to help alleviate homelessness in the city of Seattle. I do promo work for Do206 and LiveNation and I heard they were raising a flag atop the Space Needle, so I rushed to my photo spot and snapped a photo. Combined that with the press release and social posts and it went viral thanks to Do206 and Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam retweet Do206 and reposted my photo on Instagram. Not a bad start to the week and it’s always great to help spread awareness to an amazing show for a great cause.
It rains in Seattle a lot, which is great for the vegetations, but not so much for skateboarders. I spend quite a bit of time in my parking garage skateboarding during the winter. Recently, I heard Subsonic Skateboards was hosting a garage session, so I decide to stop by with my camera. you can check out some of the photos here and full blog post over a Skate[SLATE].
2017 has a crazy year in the news and with politics, but that didn’t stop it from being a beautiful year through my lens. Here are some of my favorite photos captured in 2017! Seattle Women’s March The view of the Women’s March on Seattle with record setting crowds on Jan. 21st. Capitol Hill Rainbow A summer solstice sunset brought us an amazing rainbow over Capitol Hill. West Seattle Reflections The lights of Seattle always look the best from Alki Beach in my opinion. I think this photo supports that statement. Warm Summer Nights On The Waterfront It was a beautiful warm summer night on the Seattle Waterfront and I took a few photos and this was my favorite from the evening. Fall At Jose Rizal I spent quite a bit of time pushing leaves in the hole in the fence at Jose Rizal Park. I think it was worth it for this photo. Seahawks From The Sideline I was lucky enough to capture a coiuple of Seahawks games and one of my favorite photos was Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner talking on the sideline before the game. A Sad Day Everywhere The view of the Space Needle […]
I ventured to Volunteer Park in Seattle with Molly and Chris and their adorable daughter Ella for a quick family portrait session. We lucked out on some nice fall weather and wandered around the park to capture some portraits for their seasonal holiday card. Here’s a few photos below.
Fall in the Pacific Northwest is a thing of beauty. I spent quite a bit of time venturing around the greater Seattle area seeking out fiery foliage and fall colors. Below are just some of the images I captured around Seattle in fall 2017. I still have more to edit and will most likely be adding to this post in a couple days. Fall Colors Along Lake Washington A great place to capture some fall colors is around Lake Washington. The trees under I-90 and near Mount Baker Park are always beautiful to capture. Fall Colors Above I-90 Kubota Garden Fall Colors Kuboata Garden located in south Seattle offers changing colors, waterfalls and a relaxing walk through the Japanese style garden. Fall Colors & The Seattle Cityscape Fall Colors In West Seattle Fall colors in Ballard Fall Colors In Capitol Hill Fall Colors In Snoqualmie The Puppy Charlie And Fall Colors
Seafair 2017 was an interesting one due to massive fires in British Columbia pushing smoke into Seattle and temperatures in the high 80s to 90s. Even with the hot temps and limited visibility the Blue Angels still took flight and I still ventured out to capture some photos of the annual airshow. The view from Kerry Park and the photographers and spectators waiting for the Blue Angels to pass. The rest of the photos were captured from a roof top in Capitol Hill. While I was capturing all of these photos my trusty photo assistant was sound asleep next to me. Hopefully, next year we will have better visibility, so we can actually see Mount Ranier when the Blue Angels fly.
