I wish to go to Wonderland

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

I recently had the opportunity to be part of an amazing wish for a young girl. 10-year-old Robin wished to go to Wonderland. With donations and the help of many people, the northwest chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation made Robin’s wish come true.

Below are some photos from day two as well as links to the many people and organizations that helped.

Fred G. Redmon Memorial Bridge

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Here’s a little somethin’ from back home.  Fred G. Redmon Memorial Bridge in Selah, WA. I’ve crossed this bridge hundreds of times but never really noticed how big of a structure it is. I never knew so much about this bridge until I took this photo and it was in my backyard for 25 years.

Photography has really made me stop, think, and appreciate the things around me in ways I never expected.

Señor Moose Cafe – Comida Tipica

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

We recently went out to dinner with some friends that we hadn’t seen in a while. We wanted Mexican food and they recommended the Señor Moose Cafe in Ballard, WA.

“At Señor Moose, we celebrate comida tipica, the cooking found in central plateau Mexico’s fondas and backroom kitchens.”

I like Azteca and Las Margaritas and all but Señor Moose Cafe was a lot more authentic than those. It was delicious, thanks Elena & Dan!

We started off with some fresh and very hot chips with a large selection of salsas to choose from as well as some of the best quacamole I’ve ever had.

There was so much to choose from that I couldn’t make up my mind. I finally decided on the Enchiladas De Machaca.

I’ve never heard of this beer but will definitely be trying it next time. I chose to go with the Sangria (which I forgot to get a photo of as well as my dinner).

I highly recommend and can’t wait to go back to Señor Moose cafe.

Seattle Waterfront

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Here’s a shot of the Seattle waterfront taken from the Bainbridge Ferry over the 4th of July weekend.  Click on the image below to see a larger version. I’m sorry if it takes a while to load; it was a large file.  The photo is a bit bit distorted on the ends because I had to shoot with a 70-200 and I was too close to downtown.

The Bumpasaurus is back!

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Baby got back! What do those words conjure for you? Scantily-clad women with large round… well you know. Well for me it takes me back to when My Posse’s on Broadway was bumpin’ in my tape deck. Not an mp3, not a Napster download, or even CD, I meant cassette tape.

I was born and raised in Yakima, WA. Far from L.A. and New York, or the usual places rap music came from. So the first time I heard a rapper by the name of Sir Mix-A-Lot, a rapper from Washington State at that, I had to listen; and he was good! Sir Mix-A-Lot really put Seattle music on the map for ME. Yeah there’s Jimi Hendrix and many others before him but for me it was Sir Mix-A-Lot. I mean Baby Got Back has been everywhere from background music in high school dance routines, Cameron Diaz shook her booty to it on Charlie’s Angels, and even made it onto the tv show Friends. Mix is Big! And he’s back!

That brings me to the other part of this story. A little over six years ago I moved to the Seattle area to start a career in web design. I moved here on new year’s day. #1 – It’s not the best day to get up early and move heavy boxes and furniture. #2 – I had to find the closest ski resort to go riding since it was pretty much mid-season and I missed my beloved White Pass.  I ended up going to Stevens Pass for two reasons great snowfall and the mountain itself looked sick!  The photos on their website really made you wanna ride there.

I’d been into photography for a few years by then.  Not professionally, mostly just snapshots of friends and family.  But I love stills, moments frozen in time; as cheesy as that sounds.  I will stop and stare at pictures anywhere.  My wife loses in places like the airport because I get distracted by pictures.  I haven’t yet but someday I’d like to post the photo that really made me want to do this as more than a hobby.  It’s not inappropriate or anything but it’s just not the right time.  I’ve already over-hyped it by saying that.

That brings me back to the Stevens Pass photos.  I had to find out who took them or what agency made their site so I could find this photographer’s portfolio.  It was cool to hear that it was a local photographer. A guy by the name of Chase Jarvis.  He may have been big in photography circles by then but I had never heard of him.  I just knew  that I liked his work and would like to do something similar someday.  I’ve revisiting his site and reading his blog ever since.  I’m a Chase Jarvis groupie.  I know that sounds creepy but there are many of us.  Scott if you’re reading this, you’re one too and you know it.  By groupie I really just mean that I follow and have learned a lot from the Chase Jarvis team.  Their workflow, photography style, and the philosophy of sharing your photos and giving back.

When Facebook came along it made it easier to follow people and share photos.  Then the iPhone came around which made Facebooking and taking pictures easier.  Then came the Best Camera app was created which made taking pictures, simple post production, and sharing photos easier than ever.  There’s a photo app for everything from grungy borders to the Hipstamatic look.  Now the iPad is helping us share in ways we never could before.  All the while Chase Jarvis was pushing the industry by blogging about behind the scenes workflow, printing the first all iPhone photography book “The Best Camera Is the One That’s With You™” to testing the first ever DSLR that shot video.

This past Wednesday, Chase interviewed Sir Mix-A-Lot about his life, the music industry, and what the future holds for Mix.  This was all done LIVE on Chase’s site.  That’s where we are today; anyone can write,  broadcast, or share just about anything online; for very cheap, if not free.

During the LIVE interview Chase also shot the cover for Sir Mix-A-Lot’s upcoming album while also taking questions from viewers on Twitter.  I was lucky enough to Tweet a quote by Sir Mix A-Lot which won me an autographed Polaroid by both Chase and Sir Mix-A-Lot.  What???  That’s sick!  Who would’ve ever thought that I would own a very limited edition Chase Jarvis photo of Sir Mix-A-Lot without paying an arm and a leg.  I love the internet!!

Here’s the Polaroid I won.

I’d like to thank the team at Chase Jarvis Inc. for putting on the show and helping to push photographers and our industry.  Oh yeah, your studio is sick.  The large prints on the wall stop you in your tracks.

I just came across this photo from a camping trip this past summer. I was having a beer and supervising while Kathryn and her sister pitched a tent…

This one’s for you Laura.

I was in Sunnyside, WA shooting for some friends this past weekend. On my way home after the shoot I drove by this old barn that I’ve noticed since was very young. It sat alone at the top of a hill by the freeway for a long time until Best Western built a hotel next to it. I’ve wanted to shoot it for a long time and finally got the chance. If anyone out there knows the name of this barn, property, or owners of this barn; please let me know. I’d like to call it something besides the old barn by the side of the road.
