Photo Walk with Chase Jarvis and Robert Scoble

7 days ago I drove up to Seattle, WA after work. I was drawn there by a Twitter invitation from Chase Jarvis to join him and Robert Scoble for a morning photo walk. The post said something to the affect of, "If you're tough enough to be at my studio at 7am on Friday, Robert and I are going to talk cameras and coffee." Not a direct quote but a pretty close paraphrase. I even sound like a huge dork on the video Chase made throughout the morning.

Here is a photo I snapped during the walk: (Scoble behind the lens and Jarvis on the phone)

I rolled in around 11:15pm and slept in my truck a few blocks from Chase's studio in a nice, quiet and dark neighborhood. Got up early and got took this with my iPhone of the Wollingford Steps:

Part of the walk was through Gas Works Park on Lake Union. The park offers really nice views of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle:

And because Chase is awesome, after the walk we all headed back to his studio where he did a Q&A for about 45 minutes before he had to return to his business as a working professional photographer:

There are some more photos from the morning in my Fotki albums.

Dog Days of Summer (6th Annual)

Say "Hello" to Max.

Thanks to Tracey and friends for the late summer BBQ last Saturday. I had a great time hanging out on the Sandy River eating good food and making new friends.

Here are some old friends:

Youth Triathlon 2009

I shot photos for the Nike Sports & Fitness Centers, 2009 Youth Triathlon. There were more than 275 competitors at this years event(ages 6-12):

Waiting for the rules meeting and event start:

All the little kids' bikes were waiting for their turn as well:

I would show you more photos, but they are kids and I don't know you that well. Here are a couple of photos from last year's event blog posting.

Joy Wilson Band - Photos from The Bite of Oregon

I finally finished photos for The Joy Wilson Band last week. Here are a couple from the show she played at The Bite of Portland on August 9, 2009.

Joy Wilson doing what she does best.

This is Brud. He really gets into the drumming. I got to photograph him before when he played with Scott Gallegos at Mississippi Studios.

And here is a view of the full stage and band (OK Brud is behind Joy in this photo - sometimes that's the cost of being the drummer):

You can check out her music over at CD Baby (She is a very talented songwriter and singer).

The rest of the photos are are in on my Fotki Page.

The Bite of Oregon

So I'm super excited to be taking photos of The Joy Wilson Band this Sunday at The Bite of Oregon. She plays from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. on the Garden Stage. You really should check her out - very good and lots of fun.

And if you stick around all day my buddy Scott Gallegos plays on the same stage at 6:00 p.m. You can see some photos from Scott's show at the Live at Mississippi Studios post from June. And as a side note: The drummer with Scott is Brud Giles and the Guitarist is Robert PeArt. They will also be making-up half of the Joy Wilson Band on Sunday.
