Warner Pacific College Campus, Educational Lifestyle Photography

Since school is almost back in session, seemed like the perfect time to highlight a library of educational lifestyle photography we did last year for Warner Pacific College.  The school is a Christ-centered urban liberal arts college dedicated to providing students from diverse backgrounds an education. It was great to see the diversity that exists on the campus, plus all the different places that the students have access to (hello Hawthorne Street). Everyone once at the school was both incredibly kind and incredibly helpful.  Thanks for having us, now let's hit the books.

HavestPR Norpac

Since the season for veggie growing is upon us in abundance, this seemed like a perfect time to revisit some portraits and real people lifestyle of farmers we shot for HarvestPR and Norpac. We were lucky enough to get some good looking guys that came straight from the fields, still dusting dirt off their pants.  And even Mt. Hood made a majestic appearance as the day got later.  Some days are just magic that way.

One Park with 15 Looks - Meyer Memorial Trust Team Portraits and Headshots

We recently finished a set of corporate headshots and portraits for the Meyer Memorial Trust team and Trustees.  Meyer Memorial Trust is an amazing organization that "works with and invests in organizations, communities, ideas and efforts that contribute to a flourishing and equitable Oregon."

Fred G. Meyer, upon his death in 1978, left $60 million for a charitable foundation with few mandates. “Realizing as I do the uncertainties of the future, I want my trustees to be able to exercise broad discretion in shaping and carrying out charitable programs which can be tailored to fit changing conditions and problems.” Now almost 40 years later, Meyer has paid out nearly $692 million through more than 8,200 grants and program related investments.

With such an amazing history and an amazing group, we knew we had to have some pretty fabulous portraits to match.  For the team images we managed to do them all in one location, The Fields Park, in downtown Portland. The space has everything you could want, greenery, bridges, plus an urban feel. This allowed the images to feel consistant, yet diverse. For the Trustees images we photographed them in spaces that meant something to them, their homes, the waterfront, the Salem Carousel. We feel honored to be a part of this community-driven organization that gives back to much and pleased that we could create a set of images that shows just how open, dedicated, and darn good-looking they are.
