We had another fiery sunset last night, although it was isolated to the NW horizon by clouds. After a slight detour to the waterfront on my way home I was able to frame the construction of Park Avenue West (TMT Development) – the building going up next to Director Park – in its surreal pink […]

Jade just recently turned one and, man, is she adorable!  We got to play a bit at Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver and she had a blast – playground, Mom & Dad and a water fountain – perfection for a one-year-old on a 90-degree day.  Just look at those dimples. THOSE DIMPLES!!!

This month’s speaker at CreativeMornings Portland was photographer Holly Andres.  Holly constructs her compositions as a painter does a canvas, often investing scenes with personal, sometimes traumatic, recollections of her own childhood as well as the oft-recurring theme of girls bridging the divide between youth and adulthood.

This month’s speaker at Portland/CreativeMornings was Andi Zeisler, the co-founder and editorial/creative director of Bitch Media.

I’m embarrassed it’s taken me so long to get these photos up on the blog, especially so because they are of one of my favorite projects in Portland and the house is home to my favorite owners I’ve dealt with by far.  Seriously, when I went back to grab some nighttime photos from the street […]

How cute is this little gem?!  Jade is nine months old and is really busting out of her shell.  Just look at those dimples!

This month’s speaker at CreativeMornings Portland was G Cody QJ Goldberg, Executive Director of Harper’s Playground, the first totally inclusive playground in Portland, OR.

This is the first of three great projects coming up from drw design build. There were several small interventions in this classic West Hills home, the most significant being this entirely new kitchen.  The beautiful millwork throughout was by Skyline Fine Cabinets & Furniture.

Skylab Architecture had an open house for their latest project, the Taft Residence, the first built example of their HOMB modular design system.  The HOMB system is based on a series of equilateral triangles that guide both the structural elements of the building as well as the spaces themselves and it harkens back to similar […]

I’ve known Susie for ages, having done a bunch of photography for the non-profit (Committed Partners for Youth, now Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lane County) that she used to run down in Eugene.  I’ve known Jamin for nearly as long because there’s no way you can date the director of an organization without getting […]

Earlier this Summer I had the good fortune of photographing Nir Pearlson Architecture‘s gut renovation of the Stellaria Building for Hummingbird Wholesale.  Well since our shoot there’s been some great news as Nir won both the People’s Choice and the Mayor’s Choice awards in the annual AIA-SWO (American Institute of Architects Southwestern Oregon) design competition.  […]

I finally made it out to my first cyclocross race up here in Portland and my timing couldn’t have been more perfect because it happened to be the first Cross Crusade of the season, apparently the largest single-day cyclocross race in the world. I know I’ll regret it in a few weeks but I can’t […]

Matt Spiro, the regular photographer for CreativeMornings here in Portland, was unavailable this month so I offered to fill in for him.  If you’re not familiar with CreativeMornings, it is “a free, monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types.”  I’ve been to a few now and it’s a really amazing resource to hear a quick […]

Portland’s cherry blossoms in Tom McCall Waterfront Park, right next to the Willamette River, are a rite of Spring here, a prelude of the beauty to come from an Oregon Summer. I managed to catch these last week during a rare break from the omnipresent Spring rains. We’ve had some unusually heavy showers since then […]

You can watch a flipbook ‘video’ of Sami’s shot in full-screen HD beauty at http://vimeo.com/38767580.

After too many years delay, I’m finally finishing some picture frames I’ve long been working on. These are all either domestic hardwoods (maple & cherry this time) or mahogany that I reclaimed from dining table leaves that got separated from their original table. Most of the frames are 18″x24,” perfect for framing a 12″x18″ print. […]

I’m getting a chuckle out of the fact that the TV show Portlandia just so happened to use an issue of Portland Monthly that had two of my waterfall photographs in it for this sketch. I’m left wondering whether Fred or Carrie ended up “eating” one of my photos. That’d certainly be a new milestone.

Skiing is one of my favorite activities on earth and I had the good fortune of stumbling into a program about five years ago that lets me share that passion with people who might not otherwise be able to partake. It’s called adaptive skiing, which is a catch-all phrase for all of the equipment and […]

Here’s a quick review of my favorite photographs from 2011. Compiling the list made me realize that my archive, at some point this year, crossed the 100,000 exposure threshold. Henri Cartier-Bresson famously said, “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst” and I can certainly attest to that. I’d say that the digital corollary extends that […]

Merry Christmas from these thug Santas to you and yours!  I hope the big guy was good to you and that you’re getting to spend the day with those you love. Ho, ho, ho, Scott

Photos from yesterday’s Santacon madness in downtown Portland, Oregon. On the Max from Rock Bottom Brewery to Jeld-Wen Field/ PGE Park: Walking to Kingston Bar & Grill: Headed to The Matador: Switching Santacon’s to Blitz Pearl: And off to Dante’s: And a final shot (right) outside of Kelly’s Olympian:

Well the rain seems to have settled on Portland for the Fall/ Winter so lets take a look back to sunnier, happier times. Here are the best of my photographs from the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade back in June.

Sorry for being so quiet recently. My computer went down last Monday and it was finally time to shell out for a new one. I’m just getting back up to speed but, fortunately, this new one is at least twice as fast as the old one so image editing is no longer the chore it […]
