Rainy day portrait at the art museum…

  Shot this business portrait yesterday, in the rain, on the steps of the Portland Art Museum.

Portland Product Photography…

Rummaging around up in the studio attic looking for something else one night, I ran across an old dear friend. We met in 1977, my junior year at ASU and while it was a little awkward at first, we soon learned how to make it happen and man, we did it! I graduated :) So many […]

Portland Doctor/Physician Portraits…

Providence Medical Center called recently for some new portraits of two of their doctors who were going to be going out and speaking at medical conferences. They needed shots together and portraits alone. So, early on a  Sunday evening when the hospital was quiet, we nearly had the whole lobby to ourselves which made picking locations […]

Digital Field Guides by Portland Oregon Photographer Brian McLernon…

Two new Digital Field Guides on Canon camera and flash technologies were debuted this month by Wiley Publishing and I am stoked after all the work to finally see them in print! Find them both here on Amazon.

Jenna Fallon Make-up rocks…

I was reunited recently with a makeup artist I had worked with a year or so ago on a Nike shoot with distance runner, Kara Goucher. Jenna had called to reconnect and it was perfect timing because the scheduled makeup artist cancelled that day before my shoot for INUR magazine the next day. I quickly hooked her […]

Glass Photography Lighting Workshop…

Trekked up to Everett, Washington last weekend to do a lighting workshop for the Fire and Rain Glass Bead Society. After a long drive it was great to pull in and see so many smiling faces. We had a great location and set up multiple lighting scenarios with different backgrounds and even though I showed […]

Interior Design Photography…

Shot a beautiful addition to a Lake Oswego home last week for the designer and the contractor for portfolios and contest submissions. We scheduled it for the perfect time to match up the exterior sky with the interior lighting and I think we hit it pretty good. The only problem shooting RAW @ f/22 on […]

The Fantastic Fantasy World of Rick Moore…

Arguably one of my favorite fine-art photography clients is Rick Moore and his cool and quirky fantasy creatures. His latest one, “Octohands” was created in 2006 and he recently completed the patina and brought it by the studio for his portfolio. Weighing in at a little over 90 pounds, it’s 3/4 life size and was a little daunting […]

Equestrian Portraits…

Had a cool assignment to shoot portraits for an equestrian club last Sunday. Even though we were in a covered arena, it rained like crazy and the fiberglass roof made the rain loud! One Speedlite, camera right, gelled CTO, then color balanced for that, shot through a small white umbrella.

Artwork Photography…

Had a quick shoot in the studio yesterday for sculptue artist Tim Tanner. This horse was made from all sorts of found objects: springs, wheels, gears, struts, even a meat grinder is in there somewhere!
