The assignment was to have a home workout room that looked like the 1980′s, with an aerobics VHS tape playing.

The Glenwood Rodeo

The Glenwood Rodeo

June 9th, 2007

Its not really my culture, but I love rodeo. I grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, and never went to any rodeo until I was in my thirties. But I find the machismo, the western esthetic, the horses and bulls exciting. This one is a small-town rodeo. They will generally let a photographer shoot from anywhere. […]

The Sage Cafe is next to a Seattle hospital. A lot of its clientele are hospital staff and patients. This woman told me “I’m a Doc at Group Health”, and was happy to be in the Seattle Weekly.

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.

Dance Work

Dance Work

January 10th, 2010

I’ve been shooting dance photography for years. My work with the Maureen Whiting Company, Scott/Powell, Amy O’Neal’s Locust, and the (sadly defunct) 33 Fainting Spells has been particularly satisfying.

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.

This was a cover shoot for Seattle Weekly, shot at night mostly. The theme was pirates going barhopping, and we had three of the incomparable Seafair Pirates as models.

Cab Drivers

Cab Drivers

April 10th, 2008

Seattle’s cab drivers were outraged at King County’s taxi licensing policies. The climax was a public meeting with all the taxi drivers taking out their frustrations on one pasty county bureaucrat who obviously didn’t know much about the lives of the drivers who’s livelihood the county was threatening.

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.

Tavern Law

Tavern Law

June 25th, 2010

Boo, I think the first three are the best shots for the food lead. They capture the warm and easy-going atmosphere pretty well. The bartender is named Nathan, if you want to ID him. The place is really is called Tavern Law. I captioned the food shots, so that should make the slideshow go together […]
