Exploring Hillyard, Cameras in Hands

One of the reasons I love Spokane is for the architecture. For a small city, Spokane has some great architecture. I love the early 1900’s stuff, the bricks and transom windows and back alleys. Spokane has it by the block-full. Not only downtown, but in little neighborhoods like the Garland District, the South Perry District (where I call home), and Hillyard. My friend Tyler Corcoran, an expert on analog “toy” cameras, and I had wanted to get together to shoot […]

The Inferno! – Eastern Washington’s Roos Field

So we had heard about The Inferno! Eastern Washington University’s new red turf. And we decided to check it out. We saw them play against Northern Arizona, and I’ll say, that field is red. Really, really red. But cool, too. I liked it a lot, actually. And if it helped propel the Eastern Washington Eagles to the national championship, then all the better.

Austin’s Senior Portraits – Spokane, Washington

Here are just a few quick images from the last senior portrait session, with Austin. We met at Mirabeau Park towards sunset, and we fight against a rapidly falling sun. But we did manage to get some fun pictures as the sun went down. I had offered to continue the shoot the next day, but Austin and his mom felt we had gotten enough good images.  Still, it was vaguely unsatisfying to have such a quick session; it was one […]

Clouds (I love ’em)

I like to tell people, I love weather. Specifically, I love clouds. Dark ominous clouds, clouds lit up orange at sunset, or small, lonely clouds adrift on the blue sky. I love them both as collections of water vapor, and as metaphors. I think a sky with clouds is always more interesting than one without. Whenever I see interesting clouds, whether on a hike, or on vacation, or outside my window, or even at a wedding, I take a quick […]

Allison – Senior Portraits

This is Allison, and I was afraid this shoot might never happen. Due to a variety of circumstances (bad weather, transportation issues, family emergencies), this session kept getting rescheduled and rescheduled. And then, finally, it all came together, and we spent the evening shooting. She brought several different outfits, and I had a couple different locations in mind. We started down by the Spokane River, where autumn is starting to show itself. Allison was relaxed and natural. Then we rushed […]

Mallard at Sunset

I saw this while putting my gear in the trunk after a photoshoot. Had to unpack for one more quick picture.

A Day at the Fair

Marcus’s crew of second graders recently had a field trip to the Spokane County Interstate Fair, and since wedding season is mostly over, I volunteered to be a chaperon. Which means I walked him and one of his classmates around as they filled out their Seek-And-Find sheet. I especially liked the cow-themed garbage cans. In some very smart planning, the school children visit BEFORE the rides are open.  That also made for some pretty cool pictures.
