Day in the Life Project for The University of New England

I had the opportunity to work with the great folks at the University of New England on a "Day in the Life" project of students in a variety of programs throughout the undergraduate and graduate programs offered at the University. It was fun to use my photojournalism skills for a more corporate style shoot, highlighting some of the interesting aspects of UNE. Here is a selection of some of my personal favorites.

Chase Bank for AARP Bulletin

It's always fun, and a bit stressful, to work with new clients. I was asked to photograph a family who's accounts were frozen by Chase Bank with no explanation and for seemingly no reason. It was a simple portrait shoot, but it was a nice chance to become more familiar with my studio lighting as well as create several different compositions and lighting setups.

Contour for Seattle Business

Last month I shot a portrait of the guys who started Contour. It was a fun shoot at Gasworks Park and it was great to work with the editors at Seattle Business. They did a great job with the layout. I tried several different setups with lights as well as using natural light. Both gave the images a different feel, which was interesting to see. Lately I have been using lights more and more, but still really enjoy the challenges of making natural light portraits. They have a certain simplicity that I really enjoy.

Wind Energy for The New York Times

I had the pleasure of working with Jose Lopez at the business desk of The New York Times on a story dealing with the surplus of wind energy produced in Washington and what the Bonneville Power Administration is doing about it. It was a challenging story to photograph. I photographed a couple in Port Angeles as well as wind farms in Eastern Washington. Below is a link to the story as well as some images from the shoot.

Pine Ridge Reservation in HUCK Magazine

It's so nice when an essay I care about finds a beautiful new home. It was great to collaborate with the editors at HUCK on the edit, text, and beautiful layout. Below is the layout as well as a couple of links to my galleries and the magazine. The online version of the magazine will be up on the HUCK site in a couple of weeks.
