Scholastic Magazine Cover Portrait in the Cold

Had the chance to shoot another interesting assignment for Scholastic this month, a cover photo for their story on football injuries that ran in Scope. Met Isaiah, who quit football to run track after sustaining a severe concussion his freshman year. You would never know it, but it was about 5 degrees out when this was shot but Isaiah handled it like a pro, even after he changed into his track outfit.  I, myself, was in a very long puffy coat.static1.squarespace PA-0041169-31 PA-0041169-21 PA-0041169-59

On Location: The Rose Festival - A Newspace class

The Newspace Center for Photography Spring 2013 Class guide is out, and they've asked me to teach one of their fantastic photo field trips. We'll spend the weekend at the Portland Rose Festival, which means floats, beauty queens, parades, and carnival rides galore.  Plus all participants will get media photo passes to get some behind-the-scenes action.Some of the topics include: Learning the building blocks of documentary work. How to approach strangers. (Ahhhh!) How to create environmental portraits. Seeing things from a new perspective

Plus I will be doing one-on-one sessions over our shooting time, so everyone gets a little love. Friday – Sunday, June 7 – 9. June 7: 6 – 9pm | June 8 & 9: 9 – 5pm Cost is $315. Sign up while we still have space!
