Shelton Mayor Gary Cronce for Cityvision

I had a fun assignment a few months ago that was recently published. I traveled a few hours south to the Peninsula area town of Shelton, Washington to photograph Mayor Gary Cronce. I wanted to capture his connection to the town, where he also runs a jewelry business, and so my assistant and I roamed with minimal equipment and just walked around. I loved the bright colors of some walls along a back alley and was struck by the visual starkness of some of the area’s scenic landmarks, like the train parked on Main Street.

Stanwood Mayor Dianne White for Cityvision Magazine | Seattle editorial photographer

The new issue of Cityvision Magazine is out and features a few portraits from my shoot with Stanwood Mayor Dianne White last month. The mayor has been instrumental in bringing Amtrak back to the small Snohomish County town about an hour’s drive north of Seattle. More than thirty years ago, Amtrak decided they would be bypassing the area, and with it, the ability of many in the community to travel to Seattle. Mayor White was generous with her time and the shoot could not have gone more smoothly.

Props as always to Cityvision, and writer Ted Tautaskas for another fine job on an underreported story! Props too to fellow NW photographer Mike Kane for his striking portraits in the same story on mayor’s changing their towns.
