PROPS! Behind the Scenes Video Shoot

I arrived back from The Philippines (many photos coming soon!) on Monday the 21st after three weeks of vacation, and immediately Berto from Lake City Legends hooked it up with a behind the scenes video shoot for PROPS! on the 25th and his concert the next day.  The video shoot took place at the Century Ballroom on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, which worked perfectly for the Victorian theme they were going for in this video. I won’t go into the concept, […]

Formula D Seattle 2010

Formula D is one of the events I’ve always looked forward to as a photographer every year. I’ve been photographing Formula D since its inaugural event in the Pacific Northwest back in 2006, and it definitely seems to get better and better each year.

Locals 2 Legends Charity Event

My favorite photos of 2009, 1 per month

I look back at 2009 with mixed feelings.  Certainly some things went my way, but other things really didn’t.  Nevertheless, I’m happy to see 2010 arrive and simply hope for the best.  In looking back at 2009, I decided to post up my favorite photos of 2009, choosing one photo from each month.  Voila: January
