Rainy day portrait at the art museum…

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

Remembering my step-dad Tom Maher…

My step-dad Thomas L. Maher passed away on September 11th, 2011. Tom was a husband, father, grand-father, great-grand father, and great-great-grandfather, a skilled machinist, mechanic, and avid golfer. Tom was the kind of guy who never backed down from a mechanical challenge, who in the morning after coffee, could take a non-running engine and the […]

Clowning around in the studio…

Mimi the Clown came to the studio recently for some promo shots and to help me out with a few images for my new book on Canon Speedlites. After she got into costume we did various poses showing a range of her expressions. The original plan was to do some shots outside in the fading […]

Literally, finished up a shoot this afternoon, packed up, walked outside and saw this. Right place, right time, crappy lens, but it’ll do. Another reason I love living in Oregon!

Holiday Food…

A couple of shots from this week for the December issue of INUR Magazine. Love shooting food because unless we’ve really doctored the dish up with yucky stuff like glycerin to make the shot look better, you get to enjoy the fruits of the chefs labor after the shots done!

More Fun with Presets…

Creating your own Lightroom Presets rock!

Photo Restoration…

While this photo wasn’t as badly damaged as some I’ve worked on, it was still fun because it reminded me of several pictures my family has of my Dad, who played on many leagues, such as this.

Photo Of The Year 2007…

Saturday I had the pleasure of being one of five judges for the sixth annual Photo Of The Year, a photo competition for amateur photographers that benefits the MESD Outdoor School. We reviewed over 1100 submissions for six catagories: Top 100, Water, Adrenaline, Faces, Youth (under 18 photographers) and a special Nau Catalyst award, Nau […]
