Media access and proximity to the Donald was pretty awful at this event, and it really wasn't worth my time until I met ol' Bill on my way out. He came all the way from Minnesota to spread his message...
Man, those Iowans loved Dr. Ben Carson back in October. Even the Chick-fil-A cow!
Decided to take a day to myself for personal work, and came across a few Trump images I haven't yet shared from back in September. Who would've thought that so many months later he'd still be the ringleader of the GOP primaries?
I'm here at the studio tying up loose ends, and I wanted to share these two headshots before flying out to Indiana early tomorrow morning to spend the holidays with my family. The first is of Glenn, of City of Seattle's Office of Immigrant & Refugee Affairs (whose staff paid me a visit this afternoon), and the second is of my girlfriend Erika, who was kind enough to test model sans makeup. I'm proud of how both portraits turned out (as well as the rest, to be edited after getting back to Seattle on January 1st). Anyway, it's about time I became much more adept at working with studio lighting, and so in the new year I'm eager to take on lots of headshot gigs. Happy Holidays, everyone!
Slower night, but here are two good ones of Robbie.
This was my second gig roaming on behalf of Do206. The bill included Thunderpussy, Hibou, Dancer and Prancer, The Echolarks, and Joe Gregory. All were great! Beers were provided by Goose Island at the pre-party and there was even chocolate by Theo again. Hard to top that.
My neighbor Tina and her twin brother celebrated their 50th at her art walk reception in Pioneer Square last month. We had a wonderful time.
I had the pleasure of being the first photographer asked back by the team to photograph their annual calendar a second time around. I also shot 2013's pinups-themed calendar. You can see more of the shots by ordering one here: http://www.quakerugby.org/
And I can't wait to read it over the holidays. I had the opportunity to contribute images of Kitten & Lou and Joseph & Gary to the book. Don't miss the launch party on Dec. 20th: https://hugohouse.org/event/book-launch-party-for-sarah-galvins-the-best-party-of-our-lives/
It was mighty cold out, but we were able to pretty quickly bang out some new headshots :)
Senator Maria Cantwell and U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell were among the company I got to keep last week. It was my second time working the event - the senator's special guest last year was Vice President Joe Biden. Five years ago when I was an unemployed pre-school teacher who'd never used a DSLR, who would've thought? I'm thankful for how well things have worked out these last couple years.
This was my third year in a row photographing the Brain Injury Alliance of Washington's big year-end gala, and as always it was a pleasure.
