Downtown Portland City Run - Athletic Fitness Style Photo Shoot

I wanted to shoot some athletic health and lifestyle images for my iStock account, so I did. I asked my friend Emma to model for me and the day we chose gave us the most dramatic background. As if the downtown Portland Skyline isn't dramatic enough as is, those clouds were so bold. Loving it!

See the images from this shoot for sale on my iStock Portfolio. Heres a direct link to this shoot:

Portland Luxury Home Real Estate

As a wedding and portrait photographer, I wasn't expecting to find myself shooting beautiful massive homes on a regular basis. But sometimes the unexpected phone calls make for great business connections and a consistent photo job. As of April this past spring, I've been shooting many homes for the great real estate company Haskins Realty Group

Here is a sample of the beautiful homes they are regularly listing, and that I've had the pleasure of photographing.

Commercial Kitchen Stock Photo Shoot

Earlier last month, I had the opportunity to shoot some new stock photos for and Getty images in a nice commercial kitchen. I was hoping to do this shoot for a few weeks before the opportunity came about, because out of the millions of stock photos online, not every photographer has access to a nice complete commercial kitchen. Right after I uploaded the first few photos to my iStock account, they started getting downloads pretty quickly.

Thank you to my model Kevin for letting me bring my lights and camera into your work space and for being so willing to be in front of my camera. And thank you to Steve and Joann, resident directors at the World View Center where we did the shoot, for letting me use the space.

In the Studio with Syrena

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to work with one of my friends Syrena on some styled images for her portfolio and some for my iStock portfolio. We had a super fun time shooting these images here in my NE Portland photo studio. I'm really excited with the results from our shoot, and it's always exciting to see all her friends on facebook liking and giving positive feedback on the images.

And I wanted to share them with you!
