APhotoADay.org is an amazing community of photographers from all backgrounds who share their daily photographs. It’s a chance to get feedback on new work and projects, or to compare notes on topics like freelancing. Every day, one of the thousands of pictures shared on the discussion list previously is displayed on the front page of the website. And today, one of my favorite pictures from BunnyCon was featured, and that just kind of makes my day. Don’t forget to browse the archives, it’s full of stunning work.

I had a hilarious time photographing the Cupid’s Undie Run in Seattle yesterday — and not just because I got to capture this surreal experience — though, luckily for all involved — I remained clothed! This was a blast because everyone seemed to be having a lot of fun, and were not timid about the huge number of photographers that seemed to make it out to Fremont. I tried my best to get close to people and let them know my intentions and put them at ease. Their alcohol tended to do the rest…

“Thank you for everyone who believed in me, who defended me, who supported my family,” Amanda Knox said in a brief media address. “My family is the most important thing to me, and I just want to go be with them.”

Amanda Knox arrived back in the United States after more than four years in prison in Italy.
She was met at Seattle-International Airport by hundreds of cameras from around the world. I was there for the New York Post. But we were all here in Seattle to document this woman coming to the airport. It was silly journalism, as Danny Gawlowski pointed out.

I can’t stop thinking about my 9-5 shift in the office of David Hobby and Joe McNally at the first stop of The Flashbus Tour in Seattle. It took place over the course of a far too nice day out at the Washington State Convention Center on Friday Mar. 11. It should be said, upfront, that this was an unapologetically geeky event. Hobby, wearing his trademark shorts, came out to the greet those waiting in line. There was nary a camera-less hand in sight among the predominantly male crowd.

I have always enjoyed making portraits, whether they are impromptu encounters as at Bellingham Comicon, or in more formal sessions, as in my work with Western Washington University athletes. Portraiture is so exciting and fulfilling to me — just the idea of being able to capture someone’s true personality in an image is a thrill. 2010 offered me the opportunity to shoot portraits for some terrific clients.
Cityvision Magazine hired me to make portraits of Bellingham Mayor Dan Pike, Shoreline Mayor Keith McGlashan and Everett City Attorney Ramsey Ramerman.
The Western Front assigned me to make portraits of some of Western’s top athletes and other important members of the Bellingham community.
I also made portraits for a number of smaller, local clients and editorial publications. No matter who I am photographing, I love the challenge of connecting a portrait to the story in a meaningful way.
Without further adieu, here are a few of my favorite portraits of 2010. (more…)
Today, The Seattle Mariners’ Ken Griffey, Jr. announced his retirement from baseball at age 40. Growing up, Griffey was always my favorite player, and I can distinctly recall him hitting a home run at the only game I ever attended at the dearly-departed Kingdome. They lit off fireworks, filling the whole stadium with a smokey haze. Griffey will be missed — he, along with the rest of the pinnacle team, helped to put Seattle on the map.
Below, here is one of my favorite photos of Ken Griffey, Jr. that I made while interning at The Seattle Post-Intelligencer this past spring-summer.
I don’t often find myself in the U-District, the neighborhood around the University of Washington here in Seattle, but every time I do I see something interesting. And to follow a great piece of advice given to me my Robert Hanashiro, a photographer for USA Today newspaper, “always look behind you.” It was getting dark and as I walked around and explored, I thought of this wisdom, and yep, turned around. I was not disappointed. Some advice you have to ignore though, like the suggestion to not stand in the middle of the road to take pictures…
