In the news: We Are 1 billboards spotted

In November I was commissioned for a third time by Public Health Seattle & King County to provide imagery promoting their newest campaign, which includes print ads in The Stranger and SGN, posters, web ads and, excitingly, billboards! These are the first two I've spotted - they're on Capitol Hill. A couple are also located around Tacoma and Everett, but I haven't seen them yet. Anyway, I'm really happy with how these two turned out! I'll share more work I did for the campaign, such as the full-page ads in the weeklies, as soon as I get a chance to get it all photographed.

NEW YEAR

I envy folks who are up on it enough to do those year-end review posts of their favorite photos of the past year. Maybe I'll have a chance to do something along those lines, but January's going to be busy. I'm set on revamping the wedding portfolio, focusing on client commitments, catching up this blog with selects from shoots and gigs, getting the 4-years-ago-today blog off to a smooth start, clearing out hard drive space, doing the books for the 4th quarter, and will hopefully start putting together some contest entries. We'll see where things are at in a month, but anyway, it's the plan. So far ahead of 365 days ago- still not where I want things to be. I guess that's what it's about, though. My favorite quote I read this year was from Humans of New York photographer Brandon Stanton: "There are so many people that use 'following your dreams' as an excuse to not work," he said. "When in reality, following your dreams, successfully, is nothing but work." Dude gets it.

First up, taking a much needed break from the studio and celebrating the new year with this pretty lady.
