I recently had the pleasure of photographing Tim Boyle, CEO of Columbia Sportswear for the Financial Times of London. This was my seventh or eighth time photographing Tim. Like all CEO’s he had limited time to commit for a sitting, so I had to move fast. We did two locations in about 12 minutes. I have a few rules for these kinds of shoots; Keep it simple, find a good location and connect with the subject.

Editorial Photography

I just noticed a tweet from ESPN, referring to when 13 year old Natalie Gilbert, singing the national anthem at a Trail Blazers game, suddenly froze, forgetting the lyrics. In one of the classiest moves all time, Blazers head coach Maurice Cheeks came onto the floor and help Natalie finish the song.

I had the pleasure of photographing Natalie a few months later and once again in 2010.

Editorial Photography

September 7th, 2018

I still love shooting editorial work. I also just stumbled onto a story I worked on for Vice last February, on living in remote communities without access to high speed internet. I spent a couple days in Orleans, California which is part of the Kurok tribal lands in a beautiful valley along the Klamath River, in far NW California.

Award winning advertising photography

September 5th, 2018

I happened to stumble across something called D&AD Awards for Advertising to discover that a campaign for the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, that used a couple of my pictures had won!

“To promote the city’s 300th birthday, New Orleans Tourism demonstrated its USP compared to other travel destinations. When you visit New Orleans, you leave with a story instead of a souvenir. This poster series used archival photography from the city’s history to celebrate stories from music to Mardi Gras to gay rights.”

In addition to my own, the posters featured work by

  • Bruce Gilden
  • Jack Robinson
  • Michael P Smith
  • Eric Waters

Pretty Cool huh! Too bad no one told me so I could brag about it sooner. haha

Columbia River Project

June 15th, 2017

I’m just back from a week in British Columbia, where I was working on my Columbia River project, aka “The Great River of the West”. I traveled to remote areas of the upper Columbia, including the almost impossible to access Kinbasket Lake. Now I’m working on processing the over forty sheets of 8 x 10 film, but look for new images soon. Meanwhile here’s a teaser, as posted on instagram
