Yes, this was indeed an assignment: best uses for jello. One of them was a jello cocktail.

Bridges

Bridges

April 10th, 2010

My personal work is generally shot on film, and often with an archaic view camera. These images of steel truss bridges were made with a 7×17 inch banquet camera. I printed them with cyanotype chemistry on all-rag watercolor paper.

this is simply a product shot, but we already have several pics of the monitor screens in other stories. I thought the console itself was plastic-space age enough to make a nice pic.  I gave it a blue color that looks sci-fi.

Hey Aimee, I shot this one twice.. the little girl and boy first, but I wasn’t totally happy with it. Then I found this other kid and shot him outside with his trumpet. Those are the shots I like the best.

Mustache

The model is artist and curator Cable Griffith. I made him shave his beard for the shoot—the assignment was just to shoot a guy with a mustache.

Re-design with WordPress

April 27th, 2010

This site is now entirely output by wordpress. I find theming Wordpress to be quick and satisfying. BTW, Hedengren’s Smashing Wordpress was the most helpful text I found.

Bars and Restaurants

Bars and Restaurants

April 10th, 2010

I’ve had a lot of gigs photographing restaurants, mostly for Seattle Weekly. I enjoy shooting in low light, with digital equipment, and a little bounced flash.

This restaurant shoot was especially satisfying: the natural sunlight was perfect and the plating was super nice. The Weekly used this crowd scene for a lead: This tuna poke plate:

Jello Shots

Jello Shots

December 11th, 2010

Seattle Weekly, always in pursuit of a Pulitzer, ran a cover story on the popularity of jello shots in low-end bars. this shoot was my contribution. Shooting drunks in bars is not that hard. A few snaps and they will start doing the stupidest things for your camera..

I was shooting Emmery & Rye for like 15 minutes when the chef reportedly had a freak and kicked me out (so I was told by Amber, the manager).

Boo, I wonder if the first pic, of the servers coming out loaded with dim sum, will make a nice lead? They were camera shy, but I snatched that one.
