The Night Before Spring

Time has brought us already into the middle of the third month of 2015 and at the end of winter. I've enjoyed many beautiful sunrises and sunsets in the winter-less Portland. Maybe it's the weather but I've decided to be less of a music journalist and produce more videos and photos. I'll still be shooting shows now and maybe write about them like when Patti Smith came to town and I was the only person allowed to shoot! And I still want to be a otur photographer.

I am on my third year making Yelp business profile videos under contract with SmartShoot and now they have kicked off videos for Zillow. I love doing these - meeting people from all walks of life and learning new things with each shoot. So those are my main gigs at the moment but looking to produce projects that have more time in the budget versus 48 hours to shoot and edit videos that limits my artistic background.

While I've been doing photography more than twice as longer than videos, only recently started to focus more on commercial shots - portraits, architecture, food, pets, etc... contact for specials! Until next time, here's a shot of my most favorited Flickr photo of this year so far and one of those beautiful sunrises:
