Editorial Portait

May 24th, 2012


  I had the pleasure of shooting an assignment for a publication of Lakeside recently.  They needed a portrait of Seattle executive Craig Stewart, president and a trustee of the Apex Foundation, a private family foundation of Jolene and Bruce McCaw with a focus on children, families and education, for an article in their upcoming issue. I always enjoy these assignments an getting the chance to meet such interesting people.

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.


Another recent assignment this time to photograph George Carofino and his wife Dianne. We were fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day so we headed out to the beach at Carkeek  Park. It turned out to be very clear so we got the Olympic Mountains to show up behind them. Also made a few images of their son Brad and his family on the beach

Portrait of a Banker

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.

Portrait of Jana Martinez

March 12th, 2011

Here is another in a series of portraits from recent assignments. Jana Martinez works with Whole Life Birth where they conduct Childbirth Preparation Classes. We photographed ooutside on a somewhat rare clear day. I worked with the 8m f1.2 one of my favorite lenses for its ability to through the background out of focus. It has a greatly narrow depth of field. the plane of sharp focus is on her eyes and a bit of the fence to the right. Your eyes go right to her shining eyes right away.

Recently I have been shooting a lot of corporate executive portraits and it is always a challenge to try and get something different that works for the corporation but is satisfying as a creative portrait. When I had to photograph Dean Bennion a VP at Wells Fargo Bank in Seattle, The weather was dark and rainy kind of a typical winter day around here. But I really liked how the sky and water looked from high up over downtown Seattle in the Wells Fargo office Dean works in.

Executive Portrait

May 19th, 2010

Brand strategist and writer Victoria Medgyesi needed a creative portrait for a new publication and called me last week. We went out and found some good light and location near her office building. I like the black and white version the best. The choice of image is hers but I like is too.
