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.

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!

Images of RADAR PDX

Going through my archives I found a fun series of images I shot for the Portland Mercury last year. Radarpdx  is an AMAZING little restaurant in North Portland on Mississippi avenue. The owners, Jonathan & lily were a pleasure to work with, from the moment I stepped in the door they welcomed me and made me feel at home. That’s exactly what I did, in fact I didn’t want to leave!

The shoot itself was simple, a food review. I brought a small reflector and a flash to even out some of the shadows. K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) inadvertently became my motto on that shoot. I typically like to light my images using a few strobes but I found it unnecessary to dress up their already beautiful dishes. The same goes for the owners, they are clearly very happy to be in their position, for their portraits I used a flash to soften the shadows and stick with the overall simplicity of the other images
