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!
I made the trip down to Portland with my girlfriend Alyne to get away for the weekend and I thoroughly pondered not taking a camera with me. Alyne said “you know you will regret if you don’t bring a camera” and she was right. In-between eating at Voodoo Donuts and sampling some beer at Deschutes Brewery I took a little bit of time to capture a long exposure photo of Hawthorne Bridge and the Portland cityscape over the Wilamette River. Portland Cityscape: Buy a print Hawthorne Bridge: Buy a print I also made the trip down to Tacoma this week to meet with the DB Skimboards guys to talk about some upcoming projects. The view of Mt Rainier was so clear that day I had to take a few photos and the one below is from Ruston Way. Mount Rainier over Tacoma: Buy a print On the way back to Bellingham I made a stop at Kerry Park in Seattle and also captured a few photos of the Seattle skyline with Mt Rainier in it. Seattle cityscape: Buy a print here Gotta love summers in the Pacific Northwest and I am glad I still have over a month left of […]
I spent 10 days exploring New York and my time spent in Brooklyn was easily the highlight of the trip. The area is very hip and most would say it is dominated by hipsters, but I would like to think the area is full of young people creating and experimenting with art, business, music, food and theatre that gives the area such an inspiring/trendsetting feel. It was my first time to New York and I stayed with my brother Tom and his roommates Tori, Rachel and Maggie, at their house in Brooklyn. His house is in the Bushwick area, which is in the northern part of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The area kinda reminds me of a much larger, more diverse Bellingham, which is rapidly changing. As the rent in most areas like Williamsburg, Brooklyn have skyrocketed, young people have been begun to retreat deeper along the L Train subway line to Bushwick area from what I was told while I was visiting. Now the prices in Bushwick are rising also, so people have to move further down the subway line since it is more affordable. Bushwick has changed a lot over the past decade. According to […]
