I recently had three photos featured in the new issue of Pulse Skimboarding Magazine. One photo of Casey Gackle skimboarding in Bellingham, a photo of Adam Balaam skimboarding in San Francisco and a photo of Isaac Thomas skimboarding in Tacoma. It’s always great to help boost the skimboarding scene and to get some photos of my friends and DB Skimboards team riders into magazine.
I had the opportunity to be on the sidelines of the Seattle Seahawks versus New York Giants game in November. I have been going through all the photos from the game and picked a few photos that were some of my favorites and did the somewhat cliche edit of a black and white background with the subject in color. Due to the Seahawks dark uniforms this actually worked out pretty well on the first few edits, so I just kept going. Here’s a few of my edits from when the Seahawks destroyed the New York Giants at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Enjoy and GO HAWKS!

A missed extra point and a field goal at the end of the game decided the outcome of the Meridian v. Mount Baker football game Oct. 24. Mount Baker’s Liam Short was an absolute beast with over 200 yards, but it wasn’t enough to stop Meridian. Here’s an except of the story from The Bellingham Herald reporter Joshua Hart “Mount Baker’s football team can wait another week to clinch the Northwest Conference 1A title because Friday, Oct. 18, is Meridian’s day. With four seconds left and the Mountaineers up 9-7, senior kicker Joel Escbach stood in front of the uprights with a 19-yard game-winning field goal try lying in wait. The Trojan, who only started kicking this year, waited through two timeouts and an offside. “Butterflies,” Escbach said of what he was feeling. “Everything, playoff hopes, this is all for my team right here.” Escbach hadn’t made a field goal in his football career before. But when Kevin Castro’s run came up a yard short of the end zone on third down, coach Bob Ames called on Escbach.” View the full photo gallery here Read the full story here
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 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.
A few of my friends convinced me to go up to the 2014 Mt Baker Seshup at Mt Baker last weekend and I do not regret the decision to go in the least bit. It was a beautiful day and a damn good time. Close to 200 people gathered to watch some of the top snowboarders in the region show their stuff at the 2014 Mt. Baker Seshup on Sunday, June 1, on Grandma’s at the base of Mount Herman near Mt. Baker Ski Area. The session featured a gap on the in run and a 10- to 12-foot jump that launched riders 20 to 25 feet in the air and 40 feet out. The event was co-sponsored by Aslan Brewing and Casual Indurstrees. For all of my photos make sure to checkout the full gallery on my Facebook fan page by CLICKING HERE. A few of my photos of Pat McCarthy made it into The Bellingham Herald that you can see below. You can read more about it in the short story I wrote for The Bellingham Herald HERE.
I have been checking Locust Beach on and off for a few months now when I needed to find a cutline only photo for The Bellingham Herald and Tuesday, March 25 I finally had the opportunity to try and capture some kiteboarding photos. I put on my wetsuit and grabbed to cameras and walked out as far as I could into Bellingham Bay. Patrick Harber, a Bellingham KitePaddleSurf employee, was the main person I took photos of since he was closer to the shore than the other kiteboarders. I really enjoyed capturing it and want to do it again for work and just for myself along with finally trying out kiteboarding. If I am going to stay in Bellingham there is no reason I shouldn’t be kiteboarding. You can see the full photo gallery over on BhamHerald.com by Clicking Here also.
My good friend Chach Law has been trying to get a indoor skate park going in Whatcom County for quite some time and he has continued to make progress. Last Saturday he put on a skate session / pizza party with the help of UnKnown Board shop and Cicchitti’s Pizza. I only stopped by for about 20 minutes to show some support and here’s some images I captured. Next time there is an State of Grind event you can bet the ole 10.5mm fisheye and I will be there.
