At this time last year, I didn’t know about Kivalina either – until I started looking for a photo project. This 1.9 mile island about 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle is said to be inundated in 10 years due to climate change. KUOW (NPR Seattle) interviewed me about my visit. My trip was […]
One of the great things about photography is meeting people you might not ordinarily approach. So glad I found all of these generous, interesting locals. Take a look at their faces, I bet you can see some of who they are.
After hearing about Al Green’s Kennedy Center honor, I remembered one of my first freelance assignments for “The Post Tribune”. I was lucky enough to photograph him during on of his concerts at a high school in Gary, IN. It was a magical night for many reasons.
Gloomy? Yes sometimes, but the Pacific Northwest always makes light interesting for photographers.
Had a blast photographing members of the Duke (and extended) family at Gasworks Park a few weeks ago. A few of my favorites are here. The baby was tossed so many times, they thought it might be fun to try it with the former “baby”. It didn’t quite work out, but it made for a […]
Recently photographed the Cook/Sunkel family last week on the Hood Canal. As the sun started to set I noticed one of their little girls wrapped in a towel with a very familiar look on her face. It is about this time in August when you occasionally get that whiff of fall and realize summer is […]
It’s so hard to find people enjoying unorganized sports these days, but I can witness it almost weekly right outside my own front door. I live in a neighborhood with a large Somalian population, and I am just one lucky resident who gets to enjoy their occasional games when the sun is sinking.
There was nothing more painful for me as a child than having to sit through endless little league games in the summer. While my father coached, my brothers played, and my mother chatted with other mothers, I roamed the grassy area around the field attempting to ward off boredom. It never worked, and I usually […]
a Mariner’s fan. Hard to let go of your hometown team when you move to a new city, but the Mariners just went up a notch for me (not that I ever disliked them). After seeing Felix Hernandez wave to Hilltop Elementary students, and walk on by in the first photo, it was a nice […]
Probably not, but I have been obsessed with this classic shot of fellow photographer and friend Charles (Chuck) Cherney at a 1978 Cub’s game since he posted it a couple of years ago. Seems I’m not alone and I’m trying to figure out why. I recently commented (for a second time) on this photo on […]
