Sparks Fly when NashCO shoots at ADX - Kelly Roy - Portland Editorial Portrait

Did a shoot with badass Kelly Roy the founder of ADX for Portland Monthly.  ADX is all about collaboration, with a woodshop, metal shop and digital lab where you can share tools, knowledge, and space.  We love supporting places like ADX and also really like making sparks so a set of high-fives all around.


Portland's Mississippi District goes full Square

You can find just about anything you would want and nothing you would need on Mississippi Street in Portland.  But New York Times writer Julie Lasky says it so much better than we ever could, "North Mississippi Avenue in Portland delivers a hipster experience as reliably as the rain. The street’s commercial district, which runs five blocks from North Fremont Street up to North Skidmore Street, has coffee-roasting equipment, saltwater aquariums, chandeliers made with recycled wine bottles, jewelry cast from animal sex organs and possibly the best corned beef hash ever fried."   

Thanks to all the businesses that contributed their design sensibilities: Sunlan (who was ironic before it was cool), Mr. Green Beans, Land Gallery, Flutter, Gravy, Paxton Gate, Mississippi Avenue Lofts, Silver Moon Creperie, The Big Egg, Prost!, and The John Palmer House. One thing's for certain, it's not easy being hip, but you do it with aplomb.  And a beard.

A Taste of Portland for Feast Magazine

Did a tour of tasty, tasty places for simply scrumptious Australian Food and Travel Magazine, Feast.  This required some intense research, i.e. eating everything we could get our cameras on.  The adventure included, but was not limited to:

Bollywood Theater - Ace Hotel - Portland Saturday Market - Mediterranean Exploration Company - Clay Pigeon Winery - House Spirits - Olympic Provisions - Portland Airport - Tasty n' Alder - Raven and Rose - Pepe Le Moko - Pok Pok - Tidbit Food Farm - Tilt - Yard House - Ace Hotel - Saturday Market 

Now go forth and feast.

Global Coffee Report Magazine Cover Portrait

Last month we photographed David Griswold of Sustainable Harvest Coffee here in Portland for the cover of Global Coffee Report Magazine.  As an importer of specialty coffees from all over the world, they do an amazing job creating connections between farmers and consumers. They help make sure farmers can actually make a reasonable profit from the sale of their beans.  Plus, they make a mean cup of coffee, which kept us way too talkative during the shoot.  

AARP and the Sandwich Generation

Spent the day with Janet Martinez and family for a story for AARP.  The story is about the "sandwich generation" adults bringing up young children while also overseeing the care of their aging parents.  Janet, a TV producer, was a joy; funny, honest and open about the balancing act of shuttling her daughter and mother through their daily activities.  After shooting she entertained us with a beer and stories of working on Lifetime Channel Movies.

Financial Advisor Magazine Portrait Assisgnment

We photographed David Grau, owner of FP Transitions, at his office in Lake Oswego for Financial Advisor MagazineDavid Grau can be fairly called the granddaddy of the advisor-transition business. He recently published “Succession Planning for Financial Advisors: Building an Enduring Business.” Our goal here was to make David look strong, confident, and cool. We used a few of the younger employees in the office to illustrate the idea that you need a plan for next generation to move in and take your place when you retire.

NashCO Travels to the Yukatan

NashCO just got back from a three-week photo adventure where we ate and photographed our way through Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. Here's some photos from our trip, jealous much? 

Faces of the Affordable Care Act - Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal asked us to photograph local business owner and motorcycle enthusiast Tom Daly for a series called Faces of the Affordable Care Act. Tom represents The 'Young Invincible,' who is interested in health insurance, but decided it was too expensive.  However, his new motorcycle habit, impending marriage and recent status as homeowner have made him rethink this opinion.  Adulthood will do that to you I guess.  

Reed College Magazine Profile of Prof. Kim Clausing

Popped over to Reed College to harass smarty pants Economics Professor Kim Clausing. Twiced named a Fulbright research scholar, with grants from the National Science Foundation, she is one brilliant lady, one who hates having her photo taken.  Like many folks, she was fine when we were photographing her doing something, like teaching or working, but once it was portrait time, she lost all her spark.  So we kind of tricked her...had her walk with purpose to class, check her email, get ready for a lesson...and voila, we were able to capture the vibe and personality that makes her such a hit with students.  Hey, whatever works.

Artslandia Xmas

Those wacky folks over at Artslandia came up with the brilliant idea of inviting the who's who of the holiday stage for one big photo Xmas mashup.  And we got to join in.  We mixed cocktails for Crumpet from the Santaland Diaries at Portland Center Stage, tempted The Oregon Ballet's Sugar Plum Fairy with cookies (heck no she didn't eat any), helped Lucy string up poor old Charlie Brown from Stumptown Stages and put George BaileyScrooge and Kris Kringle through the holiday wringer.  Then we just added a little fake snow and blasted the Pandora Holiday station to get everyone in the mood.  Talk about a holiday Cornucopia.  Someone brought their toddler to the set and I sure that child will never look at Christmas the same way.  That's right, changing people's lives with the power of photography.  Here's wishing all of you a happy non-secular December and a fabulous 2015.
