I had a mission recently to accompany Tim Narby of Note Bene Winery  to drop bins at Ciel du Cheval and return with harvested grapes from Arianses Vineyard and Dineen Vineyard (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot from Arianses; Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Dineen).  It was a great trip and wonderful to see where the grapes that go into his wonderful wine come from. It is some beautiful country over there in Eastern Washington State.

Last summer I photographed a Microsoft event for a vendor and the highlight of the day was a performance by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. They put on quite a show and everybody was very excited by it.

EXPO, a new apartment building was completed right next to Seattle Center on lower Queen Anne recently. I was commissioned to make some photographs for Robin Chell who was the interior designer for the project. Here is a brief selection of some of the images. I love the view above of the Space Needle and the Seattle skyline from the roof deck.

The Bullitt Center is the greenest commercial building in the world, planting Seattle in the forefront of the green building movement. The Bullitt Center is a commercial office building at the edge of the Central District, Seattle. It was officially opened on Earth Day, April 22, 2013, and was designed to be the greenest commercial building in the world when completed. It was built by the Bullitt Foundation, a non-profit group based in Seattle that focuses on environmental issues. The foundation is a tenant, occupying half of one floor in the six story building, with additional commercial tenants occupying the rest of the building.

One of the features of the building is the ceiling fans. they were provided by a Kentucky based corporation that goes by the name Big Ass Fans. Here is how they look in the interiors of the Bullitt Center.

Wallpaper

Custom Wallpaper designer
I had a recent assignment from a company in Los Angeles that designes and markets custom wallpaper. Needing some pictures for marketing they assigned me to make some images. One of their clients was located  here in Seattle and they agreed to allow me access for a few pictures. This one below and above in the portrait of Trae was one of my favorite designs.

Once again it that time of year when I hear from the usual clients for their annual Family Portrait to send out on a holiday greeting card. Recently I photographed Tim Narby and his family at their Seattle winery Note Bene Cellars. Tim and Carol make some fabulous wine, some of my favorite wine from Washington State.

Corporate Executive Portrait

February 22nd, 2012

Recently I had an assignment to photograph Marco Abbruzzese, an executive with Wells Fargo Bank. Although we were 40 stories high up over Puget Sound, there was no view of Elliot Bay since we were completely fogged in. I had been hoping to use the view of the Bay but instead discovered that I actually like the intense studio quality of the  pure white light coming in through the fog.

Portrait of a Banker

December 5th, 2011

I had a recent assignment to photograph Dean Bennion, an executive at the Wells Fargo Bank. I love the low intensity of the light over Puget Sound. The bay can be seen out his office window with the Olympic Mountains off hidden in the clouds. In Fact there was rain over most of the horizon. The sky was a mass of clouds. Except for off in the souther end of the Olympics, the sun was trying to get through under the clouds. What a great view from above 40 floors over Elliot Bay.


On Saturday I was covering an event at Salish Lodge and was struck by the view from the room looking out over the falls. What a beautiful spot. It was late afternoon and the sun was getting ready to set but was still spotlighting the hillside above the fall. The falls were going strong with a great volume of water going down.  The Salish Lodge is a very inviting place with a great restaurant an I intend to return someday when not covering an event.
