Model: Kelly Location: Studio

Updated Kelly’s head shots and a double exposure.

Lighting info: two lights. One to the right of the model, a strip bank. Behind the model, a small bi fold umbrella. The light behind the model did a good job of highlighting the hair and the strip bank made for some good shadows.

Photo in a brick frame. I really loved seeing this near my flat in London.

Stretch marks. Everyone has them. They are all different.

NSFW Things »

You probably shouldn’t click on the link at work…. I took some pictures of a friend and she submitted one of her favorites to another blog. Getting feedback like this… is why I take pictures.

When I was in London, I saw the Cutty Sark, a sailing ship. There were these two plaques on the deck that commemorated crew that was lost at sea.

Sometimes, the outtakes are the best parts of a shoot.

Redscale Preview »

Got a roll of redscale back from the lab.

Love that this completely changes the look of the Seattle skyline.

Every year, there is a prank at PAX. It is usually something really specific and very well thought out. You can read more about them here.

Here is a picture of a friend and me playing dice for some… payday money.. and getting cited by the PAX Cops (this years prank).

Double Exposure : Round 1

I started messing with the double exposure feature of my camera while at PAX and got some great results.

More to come.

These are from the PayDay Game booth.

10 PAXes as an Enforcer. 1 PAX as an exhibitor.

I haven’t posted it super publicly, but this was my first show that I didn’t work as staff of the show, but worked for an exhibitor. It’s a bit bittersweet, since I love my friends in the Enforcer family, but when an offer came of “hey do you want take pictures for an ENTIRE show…” I couldn’t turn that down.

Here’s a picture of a tournament for Payday 2 where we made it rain on the winners.

Super fun times.
Upward and onward.

This image is currently on display at Cafe Cesura in Bellevue. There is another image not shown here. 

Blank walls are lonely. These pieces are 3ft by almost 5ft. 

This image is a slightly new direction from what I have been up to normally as I’ve printed this on an industrial printer which introduced a bunch of scratches and lines that were not in the original image. This method introduces flaws like scratches and a limited color palette to the existing image. Part of this is an exercise for me to accept imperfection in an image.

This image set is titled ‘Focus’ because it is the exact opposite of what this image is as the majority of the image is out of focus to some degree.

The image of the crane used a tilt shift lens to achieve the look you see.  The image of the lady was a double exposure made in camera. The only thing done in post was to make it black and white.

The image of the lady is not for sale.

Outtakes.

Pulled from the last few years of shoots. I haven’t really ever shown this side of my work.

Lets see…. common themes: - people laughing at me - getting flipped off - awesome smiles - I got a spot on my sensor

Hilarity ensues.
