Back at work with one of my favorite clients, Capital Manor retirement community here in Oregon. While setting up in a nondescript dated decor room to capture a few headshots and portraits, I captured one of the nicest gentlemen around as a test subject. It truly is a pleasure to work with so many of the residents and staff at Capital Manor.
A good team really does make a photo shoot more efficient, professional, and enjoyable. Friday was such a shoot; just a great team! Fashion, clothing, lookbook photoshoot for a new client. This here’s a peek from the shoot.

Just a couple bts of recent fashion/clothing photo shoot. Men’s clothing yesterday, Women’s clothing shoot starts on Friday. Will be starting fuller themed photo shoot next week.
I’ve worked with Kelly Williams Brown for the past few years. She understands that I’m her personal photographer even after the success of her book & J.J. Abrams turns it into a sitcom may take her to parts unknown. ; )
One of the perks about the location of my studio is having people drop by. Johnny Crash stopped by today. It was great to meet him. WARNING: If you stop by, there will probably be a snapshot taken of you as well.
The rain was back with a vengeance yesterday. And to be honest, it’s the Pacific Northwest, it’s supposed to rain. But I wouldn’t mind a bit softer rain until I get my equipment to the photoshoot today. Should be a great shoot, a long shoot, all day with multiple goals for my client.
Not really a hipster.
The incomparable Kelly Williams Brown & friend.
UPDATE: Kelly’s book is also morphing: Adulting, a half-hour single-camera comedy from The Vow co-writers Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, Warner Bros TV and J.J. Abrams’ studio-based Bad Robot, has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment.
Kelly Williams Brown’s new book will be released on May 17, 2013. (Click on image above to pre-order – or if you’re here after release, just click to order) I was privileged to photograph the insanely talented Kelly for the cover. I’d recommend keeping an eye on her even beyond this book. She will be showing up more & more in the public eye (and probably Gawker or maybe TMZ, but in a good way) very soon!
Though I prefer Autumn myself, it’s hard not to miss Summer, and all that comes with it. Here’s a nod to the warmth of Summer.
I’ve begun working with a great new client, Capital Manor, a retirement community. We’re creating images for the new website and collateral materials. I’ve been privileged to meet some of the residents, and to be working with the wonderful and talented Leilani Slama.
The above photo is Peter Stone, artist, instructor, and one of the residents. Truly a privilege to photograph many of the residents.
Al, owner of Salem Summit Co., a locally owned and operated outdoor shop located in downtown Salem. Another photo from my ‘Buy Downtown’ campaign.
As part of a “Buy Downtown” campaign, I’m photographing local business owners around downtown Salem, Oregon. Alyssa & Evan are the owners of The Governor’s Cup, one of my favorite coffee joints around. Here’s Alyssa:
Many of you know I was a director for a non-profit college-access program for low-income less formally educated families. One of my students, Avi, went on to coach a soccer team (amongst other things). Here’s Avi with a few of his players.
