This spring has kept me hopping and shooting a lot of new editorial and commercial assignments. I can’t share them all yet, but one came in late last month (for the first time ever via LinkedIn) to photograph Bill Gates being interviewed for a large Italian newspaper called La Stampa. The paper is launching a new series about global issues and the wide-ranging interview covered a lot of ground. I was allowed to shoot the first and last five minutes of the interview, for which La Stampa Editor-in-Chief Mario Calabresi flew in from Turin. It was a little surreal to be inside Bill’s office at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and hear him speaking about everything from who his heroes are to what lies ahead for the newspaper industry. I did my best to be low-key and inconspicuous as I moved around and tried out different angles. Bill never acknowledged me, but I suspect he is very used to this kind of thing. At one point I was trying to line up a shot from his profile side and almost sat down in his chair — I caught myself and thought better of it. It was one of those crazy days planned for a week and all over in a matter of minutes, I am just happy to see it ran in print today.

Brooks Running Company for Footwear News

In April, I did a shoot about the turnaround at Brooks Running company for Footwear News, a Condé Nast trade publication dealing with the footwear industry. The story is about how after 100 years in business, Brooks CEO Jim Weber has managed to overhaul the company from the brink of bankruptcy into a company that sold a half billion dollars in products last year. It was no easy feat. It required dumping entire product lines, launching new ones, and hiring executives from visionary brands to come work in new divisions at Brooks. Over what became a very long day, I photographed Brooks CEO Jim Weber, as well as Shane Downey, head of the new heritage line, Pete Humphrey and Eric Rohr in the Brooks Running testing lab in the Eastlake neighborhood, and several other employees for a lookback quote section about their experiences and memories at Brooks. The magazine cover story published last month and I am excited to share the tear sheets! It’s always a sweet assignment when I get the chance to photograph and meet people who do interesting work in interesting places.

Darrington, one week after SR 530 mudslide | Seattle editorial photographer

A week ago, a deadly mudslide ripped through a small-town of Oso, Washington, resulting in the tragic deaths of at least 21 people. Officials believe 30 residents are still missing, down from a high of 120 people just a few days ago. Life in this part of Washington state has come to a screeching halt. The after effects of the mudslide — flooding of the Stillaguamish River, dozens of homes destroyed, access to surrounding cities cut off — continues to affect daily life. I had to see what it was like on the ground in Darrington, one of the areas closest to the mudslide. Many people in Darrington live and work around where the slide occurred, and if they didn’t have homes there, they know people who do – or in some cases, did. I was impressed by the way the communities have supported one another. I will be returning soon to keep working and exploring and seeing what I can do to tell the stories of the people here.

Medical marijuana business owner Martin Nickerson for Northwest Leaf

Bellinghamphotographer-editorialphotographerseattle_martinnickerson_marijuanaportrait_0001

For the March issue of Northwest Leaf I got the opportunity to photograph Martin Nickerson, the owner of Northern Cross Collective, Bellingham, Washington’s longest-running medical marijuana dispensary — open since 2011. I’ve photographed him a bunch over the years for various stories. This time around, it’s because the Washington state Department of Revenue contends that Nickerson owes more than $50,000 in unpaid taxes related to the sale of marijuana. “This is medicine, you can’t tax medicine,” Nickerson told Northwest Leaf in February, during a tour of one of several marijuana grows under his control.

Before working on the inside grow room portraits, I was drawn to the stormy weather and open fields surrounding Martin’s property. The wind was whipping and cold, but the light and color of the sky was so striking. I quickly threw a light on a stand and convinced Wes, the editor, to hold on.

Accountant Todd Harkley for Northwest Leaf | Seattle editorial photographer

Accountant Todd Harkley has found a new niche: helping legal and medical marijuana businesses keep track of their dollars — that way, Harkley said, the owners can focus on taking care of patients and running their organizations.

“I know accounting may sound boring,” Harkley said, “But a business can’t operate and serve patients unless it’s making money to pay the operating bills… I realized that I could use my accounting skills to help these businesses succeed. If they succeed here in Washington, then it’s a model for the rest of the country and it’s also another “chink in the armor” of the drug war. I think that’s what has got me really excited, because I can do what I love and at the same time I can actually help some really interesting entrepreneurs. You can’t serve patients or recreational customers efficiently unless you’re following all the guidelines, so give me all your boring stuff and I’ll do it so you can focus on more important things.”

Attorney Adam Ballout for Northwest Leaf | Seattle editorial photographer

Attorney Adam Ballout for Northwest Leaf | Seattle editorial photographer

Attorney Adam Ballout of the ABC Law Group in Everett has worked to protect parental rights for medical Cannabis patients in Washington since 2011. “Family law recognizes environment above all,” Ballout said.

“Do not make it easy for them. Keep your medicine out of reach of children, and make sure that you respect it, and that it isn’t affecting parenting. Mentally you should always be prepared to think ‘What if I had to give a walk-through today?’ There shouldn’t be a bong in the living room, or plants growing and smelling in a way that affects children in the house.”

Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert & City of Seattle Director of Electronic Communications Sabra Schneider for Cityvision Magazine | Seattle editorial photographer

I had the pleasure last month of shooting a couple assignments for Cityvision Magazine’s Feb. 2014 issue. The theme is how local governments are putting more data online in a move towards more openness and community building.

The first shoot took place at Arlington Municipal Airport to help convey how Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert is an amateur pilot (fun fact: that’s her plane and she flew herself in for the shoot after having lunch on Whidbey Island with friends). My friend and fellow shooter Chris Wilson gave me a hand setting up a few lights on the tarmac, which I got to drive onto! Felt a little bit like North by Northwest as I drove in between planes…I guess I can check that one off the bucket list. We also shot back at City Hall for a few more options for the editors.

The next week, another assignment for the same issue came through and I photographed City of Seattle Director of Electronic Communications Sabra Schneider at her offices overlooking downtown Seattle. Sabra and her team are working to find more ways to put more data online, so that city residents can access the data that is publicly available to them. It’s an interesting new time for the city and I think it’s great that they are embracing new mediums to keep transparency on the up and up.

Sabra Schneider is the Director of Electronic Communications for the City of Seattle, where she has helped lead efforts to put more public data online, which proponents say promotes transparency and empowers citizens.

Seahawks Super Bowl Victory Parade | Seattle editorial photographer

Well, about 700,000 of the Seahawk’s closest friends jammed into downtown Seattle and the stadium district to get a glimpse at their favorite players and coaches rolling by in today’s Super Bowl Victory Parade. The weather hovered in the mid-20s for most of the morning, though sunshine was a welcome respite by the time the parade began. The cheering crowds who endured the weather and wait were screaming their hearts out, and it just felt like an amazing moment for everyone in the city to come together and witness this historic day. Go Hawks!

Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl | Seattle editorial photographer

The streets of Seattle are filled with confetti and shouting tonight as the Seahawks bring home the Vince Lombardi trophy! Their incredible season was capped off by an absurdly effective offensive and defensive plan. What a game. I tried to catch some of the fray in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, where the cheering of Sea….was always met by a resounding HAAAAWKS. What a season and what a night!

PDN Photo Editor Amy Wolff reached out to me earlier this week about possibly featuring my Seahawks fans portrait series for their Pictures of the Day post leading up to Super Bowl Sunday. They have posted the gallery and I am thrilled to be in the fine company of so many talented people. Go spend some time looking through the posts, there is a really diverse selection of imagery.
