Way back in August I had the great pleasure of photographing a section for the Seattle Weekly Voracious Food Guide profiling three different brewery owners known for their hard work and excellent craft beers. I photographed Tommy Ortega at his Ravenna Brewing, Manny Chao at Georgetown Brewing Company and Adam Robbings at Reuben’s Brews (blocks from my house!) It was so cool to step into these guys’ world and hear how they got their start – I had a personal interest as a beer lover and fellow small business owner. Compared to most of my assignments, these were wonderfully slow shoots. Me and the owners and a couple beverages, trying out ideas, hanging out and making pictures.
Photographing the Georgetown Carnival for SeattlePI.com was a visual treat.
It was my first time shooting the carnival, and on Saturday I got the chance to cover a pretty unique event: power tool races. As airplanes flew overhead loudly, I shot metal contraptions of all makes and breeds, as they collided and spewed wood chips. Some teddy bears were harmed in the process. It was a nice hot day in Seattle and wandering the carnival and exploring was a nice way to spend a few hours.
As always, thanks for looking —
