PDXtra Magazine Jan/Feb Issue

A few images from a recent shoot for PDXtra magazine. I was asked if I could find the models myself for this one and felt really lucky that I met Johna and Steve. They both fit the demographic and exude the lifestyle the article was exploring. We traveled around the downtown area one afternoon to check out some neat businesses that cater to a healthier lifestyle. Talk about a tight schedule! Luckily my team was wonderful as well as enthusiastic. We got the job done on schedule!

Locations include Firebrand Sports, The Float Shoppe, The Yoga Space, & Prasad Cuisine.

The article touches on resolutions and features some wonderful local Portland services that may help you pick up a few new skills that keep you happy and healthy this year.

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 :

TILT NW assignment

Most Portland foodies already know of the amazing force that is TILT. The Portland Mercury recently sent me out to photograph some favorites from their newer NW location at 1355 NW Everett Street. Tilt is known for having quality colossal burgers and delicious pies at an affordable price, the NW location even has a full bar! (I hear their bartenders aren’t too shabby either). I was lucky enough to come in early on a Saturday morning to shoot the images before it got crowded. I snagged a table in a corner of windows for nice light and began to drool as the food came out.

Here is Tilt’s website with their locations and menu: http://tiltitup.com/

This is a link to the Food Review that the Mercury published: http://www.portlandmercury.com/portland/adding-pearls-to-a-blue-collar/Content?oid=12111965

Enjoy!
