Daron : Francesca

This was a small, quick shoot with friend Daron and girlfriend Chessie,back in March near my old apartment in Corvallis.  It was a little field near some railroad tracks, cool train cars, and an old warehouse covered in graffiti.  One of the first real things I did with my 5D, it was pretty new then.  Some of these photos were hanging in Interzone Cafe in Corvallis for the month of April.

Okay, so here’s a bunch of old “sportraits” – so they’re called – from my Barometer days.  This stuff I really like doing.  Some are better than others.All these posts are just making up for lost time… Trying to show different things I’ve done.  More recent stuff will come soon, it’s hard to post newspaper (Bulletin) stuff right away, can’t give away stories before they run.

Jeff and Michelle

Jeff and Michelle Hamilton…
A wedding I shot with my friend Daron back in June.  The wedding was up in Seattle near Seattle Pacific University, it was in this very well lit studio they rented out for the ceremony and the reception; made for some very cool, very high key ceremony photos.  It was basically the frist long shoot I did with my 5D, shot the whole thing in RAW and totalled about 36GB in photos…

It was a beautiful wedding, lots of fun, lots of quirky things.  One of their colors was purple, all the men in the wedding party wore purple vans for shoes, except the ushers who wore green vans, it was cool.  Jeff’s younger brother got ordained online and married the two of them, and their reception dinner was breakfast, their favorite food – part of the whole IHOP thing.  Also they are both US Marshalles, the cake topper figurines both have handguns – the last picture.

All in all, very fun, very good experience.

The News-Review

These photos are from my portfolio from my internship with the News-Review in southern Oregon in summer 2009.  When I was working there I didn’t really have a functional website…

These photos are some of what I felt were the best from my 9 week internship through the Snowden Excellence In Journalism internship program, through U of O’s School of Journalism.  The photos are all from stories and assignments I did for the News-Review – which is based in Roseburg, OR and covers all of Douglas County – with the exception of the boy skateboarding (the first photo), that was a stand alone feature, all these photos ran.  Some of the stories include a home brewers club; the wildlife safari in Winston, OR; the week I covered the Douglas County Fair, which includes fair features and a Molly Hatchet concert; the Douglas County relay for life; the Williams Creek fire; and a day shadowing a corrections Deputy in the Douglas County Prison.

Right now I’m doing an intern ship with The Bulletin in Bend, OR.  I’ll post photos from for time here soon; the trouble with news photos and a news job is any photos I can post are delayed; I have to wait until stories run, to not give away anything that will be running in the future.  News publication policies and such.
