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.

New York Times Home Feature

Spent a lovely afternoon in the amazing home of David and Sarah Altman for the New York Times.  They managed to make a marriage of both the old and the new in their SE Portland home.  And managed to be pretty great posers as well.
