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.


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.

Nash and CO Stand In For You

Okay, let's get one thing straight. Nash and CO are a couple of hams. One of the big advantages to working as a team is that when setting up lights and checking locations for portraits we get to take photos of each other ALL THE TIME.  For those of you who don't know, Leah (Nash) is the cute one, and Christopher (CO) is the one who's still working out how to pose for the camera.  So here's a look back at 2013: a year of standing in.

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks take 2

So a couple of years ago I photographed the Jicks for Rolling Stone.  This led to band photo session number one back in 2011 with their release of 'Mirror Traffic.'  And now with 'Wig Out at Jagbags' (side note: Where do musician come up with their album names?) about ready to hit the label decided it was time for round number two.  I will just go on the record saying that band photos are tricky and can easily veer off into the land of awkward.  Luckily, matching navy turtlenecks saved us from that fate.  Yes, I realize the irony of that statement.
