“Who’s The Ross” is a late night, live comedy show hosted by actor and comedian Aaron Ross. Along with co-writer and Comedian Jordan Paladino, Tuesday nights were a great time to be at Dante’s. The show was a lot like a television late night program, except live and not broadcast of course. There’s a large […]
The last show was bittersweet, but sometimes you have to move on to the next project. Last Friday we had a great night some old friends joined with new friends for a grand goodbye. There was a pole dancing dinosaur, live music, interview and jam session with Dave Dahl of Dave’s Killer Bread, local hip-hop […]
The Sears KS-00. This is a not so interesting camera, that may have a place in a lot of photographers’ collection.
I typically put together a “Year in Portraits”, but I shoot a whole heap of photos in different genres. I feel I had a lot of growth in my craft in 2017, my personal style has come a long way. The best I could hope for in 2018 is to feel the same way in […]
Aaron Ross and the gang at Who’s the Ross put on a benefit to raise money to buy toys for the kids at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital… How I photograph shows like this.
Most of us got into photography because it was fun. I take pictures everyday and when I choose a camera and lens, you gotta believe I’m having fun.
Last week I bought the 7artisans 25mm f1.8 manual focus lens I saw this lens on Amazon and it immediately caught my attention. I tried to research the lens on the internet, but alas I couldn’t find anything meaningful on its performance. It took me a couple of months to buy this lens. Without knowing […]
This gallery here is from April 2005 in Lafayette, Colorado. My friend Longboard Ric was working with a group of young skateboarders (groms) and I went along for the ride.
The Whiteaker Block Party is a neighborhood event the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene, Oregon. This was the 11th year of the Blockparty. The neighborhood residents and businesses in pull together an volunteer to throw a ten-hour party. Which is more like a music festival than block party.
Last December was the first time I caught the band Childspeak. I loved their music immediately, I also find this band a compelling photographic subject. I’ve photographed them on stage and off stage. There comes a point when your subjects become your friends and your friends become your subjects. Photographing people is a personal process, […]
The Domestics are one of my favorite bands. They don’t get that admiration just because of their stellar musicianship and songwriting. They are professionals. They really bust their ass to make it happen. It is different for everybody of course. Leo, Michael, Kyle, Matt and Brad are also friends. So when they call, I come […]
It doesn’t matter whether we’re photographing dog catchers, accountants or musicians. Photographing groups of people always adds another level of complexity over photographing one person. It’s difficult enough to coordinate with one or two people, it’s even more so with four or six people. There’s usually an element of uncertainty when photographing groups. If there’s […]
The lens that you didn’t know you didn’t need. This is almost a review of a lens. I don’t do technical reviews, this is just a usability review. Without going too far into Vivitar’s history, Vivitar is an American photo-equipment company that didn’t actually make their own equipment. In regards to their lenses, they would […]
I walked out my door at 11am to go to the march. I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know how any people would be there. My plan was not to document, but I always carry a camera. The 15 minute walk to downtown Eugene was pretty quiet, so I just assumed this event […]
Eugene Psychedelic Ball No New Year’s Eve party is complete without a bunch bands crushing it all night long. This was a lot of show. I caught a piece of every band that played and I tried to get good shots of each band but you know how it can get crazy at a NYE […]
