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.

IBM Magazine Serves up Servers - Corporate Portrait

Nothing like a little corporate portrait action to keep you thinking.  This was for IBM.  Or IBM Systems Magazine to be exact.  As you can see by the story headline, "Clients Find a Winner When They Explore the Differences Between Linux on Commodity Servers and Linux on Power," we had no idea what the heck the article was about.  Our job was just to make Jim Wasko, VP of Open Systems Development at IBM, look cool...and open.  That was a play on words in case you missed it.  Jim was great, game for all our crazy plans including using this awesome green wall we found in the office supply room.  The result was him channeling Agent Smith in the Matrix, which I love.  In the bottom photo you can see me really trying to sell the green wall, while Christopher and Jim looked on dubiously.  Ended up being my favorite portrait spot though.  And I managed to steal some toner.  Sheesh, totally joking, who even uses toner anymore?

Leah stands in and shows us all how to pose!

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.

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.

Alpaca Fever - Latin Magazine

I will go on record as saying that alpacas are adorable.  They look like llamas, walk like camels and act like cats, curious and lovable, but not necessarily affectionate.  Now the reason I have such first hand alpaca knowledge is because The Latin School of Chicago, a co-educational independent day school for students in k through twelve, recently hired me to shoot a profile and the cover for their Alumni magazine.  The man of the hour was '59 alum Barry Bolewicz, who raises Alpacas and sheep at his EasyGo Farm in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Barry and I had a great time tromping through the fields as I snapped away and asked endless alpaca-related questions.

Me: "How long have you raised them?" "Have you ever eaten one? What do they taste like." "What do you use them for?" "There are alpaca shows? That is crazy."

Barry: "More than 20 years." "Yes. Gamey chicken." "To stud, for fleece, and to show." "Yes." "No."

Photographing the alpacas reminded me a bit of dating.  If I ignored them, they would look at me with great interest and immeasurable cuteness.  But as soon as I would get near them or try to approach, they got skittish.  Probably worried that I was about to press for a LTR.

But luckily all of us were able to work out our commitment issues, the weather held, Barry smiled (eventually) and I spent the day surrounded by adorableness.

Discover Portland

Me and Ava Gene's restaurant have found ourselves on the cover of the DiscoverPORTLAND Guide.  Doesn't everyone look so dang happy in this picture? My images from Lardo SandwichesOX Restaurant, and The Nines also made the cut of Portland fabulousness. Leading the world to realize we are just a town of non stop eating and drinking.  

Whenever friends visit the first question is, "Where for brunch?" and the second is, "Where for Happy Hour?"  

At least we all have our priorities straight.

Teacher of the Year, Jeff Charbonneau for Ed Tech Magazine

Spent the day playing with vials, beakers and all things science for our Cover Shoot for EdTech Magazine with 2013 National Teacher of the year, Jeffrey Charbonneau.  The Science and Engineering teacher graces the halls of Zillah High School, the very same school he graduated from.  Talk about your high school flashbacks.  At least he knows all the good make out spots.  Seriously though, as we roamed the halls with Jeff, he got a greeting or a hug from almost every student we passed.  Coming from a family of teachers, I know they don't always get their due.  Glad in the case of Jeffrey, someone noticed.

Acorns, More Than Just Squirrel Snacks - For NPR

I first met wild food expert John Kallas through a friend several years ago.  That is how I found myself up at 6am on a Saturday morning at the Oregon coast, digging for steamer clams. John has a year-long calendar of events that pit you against nature and have you come out the well-fed victor. Classes with titles like, "Wild Foods From Dirt to Plate," "Sea Vegetables of the Pacific Coast," and most recently, "Acorn Pudding."   

So with adventures like that, you can understand why I've been dying to do a story on him. Now just needed to find a wordsmith and well, a publication. Ah, technicalities. Luckily the plucky Deena Prichep was able to supply both and got National Public Radio's The Salt to come along for the ride. We spent the day watching, shooting and interviewing as John took a group of folks from Acorns to Pudding. Apparently this involves lots of grinding, lots of leaching and lots of sugar.  The result was warm, sweet, and porridge-like. 

Those squirrels had no idea.
