The “Survivalist Guide To SE Portland” Assignment

The opportunity to photograph images of your friend yielding axes and carrying knives in public doesn’t always happen, but when that opportunity comes YOU SAY YES. Hitting the stands today is the special SE Portland Survival Guide addition of the Portland Mercury. My pals Keely (model), and Justin (Art director) collaborated with me on this photo project and I have to say it was a lot of fun to shoot.

Most images were shot on the quick with an SB-600 flash and a cheapo umbrella on a flimsy light stand. For me, the most interesting part had to be holding the stand down without a sandbag in the wind… While tethered to the flash by a short cord. YIKES!

Here are tear sheets from the project, it can be digitally downloaded via the Mercury website :
