Kat…

Window light in the old studio. The FIRST studio actually. I’ve been having fun re-editing some old work that I never published. Its funny to see how my editing has changed over the years. Makes me wonder into the future…

Drag Night at The Klondike Tavern…

Many years ago, one of the first professional gigs I shot as a new freelancer, was Drag. I love the energy, the good jeer…the cheekyness of it all. I’ve photographed many over the years now, so it was with little surprise that I once more found myself in the middle of that fun again…this time in Saint Helens, during our annual Halloweentown celebration. The Klondike Tavern hosted the evening and Jyo and I worked tag-team to cover the whole thing. Here’s just a peak…

Anthony at the Skate Park…

This is Anthony. He is fearless. He is joy. He is a father. He is in recovery. He is a helluva cook. And he’s a good friend. He works his ass off to makes ends meet and yet he gave me a whole shoot to do nothing but what makes us both happy. As always…much thanks for the extra hands from @jyotisackettphotographer

Everybody needs a good Headshot…


Some of the wonderful folks of The Carrum Group Jyoti Sackett – Photographer and I photographed on our recent Social Media Headshot session, on location at the amazing Le Meridien Hotel in the heart of San Francisco. Thanks for making it so fun!!

On Location in Downtown San Francisco…

Jyo and I had a whirlwind week which involved driving down to San Francisco for a quick portrait session with The Carrum Group, a small startup company. Our HQ was the 19th floor of the Le Meridien and we set up our studio on the outdoor patio…hoping for cooperative light for the afternoon. We were rewarded. You’ll see us…waaaaaaaaay down there in that 2nd photo.On the drive back, we couldn’t resist a section just off 101 through Humboldt County…Avenue of the Giants. How can you not stop…even for just a moment…to touch these magnificent things. Oooph…Thanks again folks…and to my much loved BFFJill (you know who you are).

Senior Shoot…

With the irrepressible Emeila and her dear friend Sasha. Did I not tell you…?
Dogs are ALWAYS WELCOME on any shoot.

Downtown Saint Helens…

October gets off to a festive start here in Saint Helens. Some scenes from the goingson this weekend as the Halloween spirit invades “Holloween Town”. Going on all month…

Some Old Film…

Jyo and I both had some old film roles we wanted to finish up, and with summer drawing to a close, we took one last quick road trip, crawling the coast between Astoria and Willapa Bay for a couple of days. I love old film…the texture and the funkyness. My Minolta has some kind of light leak…my Nikon FA is full of dust and schmutz. I keep telling myself I’ll get them serviced and cleaned up…buuuuuuut….I probably won’t.
