North Cascades Highway

My brother, Drew, and I took a trip up Highway 20 (North Cascades Highway) in search of a campsite. We were ultimately denied a spot, but found several interesting and picturesque locations along the way! Enjoy. Additional shots: ...

Cherry Creek Falls II

Did a quick little 5 mile out-and-back afternoon hike to Cherry Creek Falls outside of Duvall, Wash. Felt good to get outside and get moving. Brought the camera along in the hopes of snapping some interesting photos. Enjoy! Additional shots: ...

No school like the old school

Well after getting a little taste of digital SLR photography, my interest in film (specifically black and white) photography has been reignited. I picked up this 1975 Minolta SR-T 202 film camera and currently have 5 rolls of Kodak T-Max 100 B/W film headed my way. Can't wait to take some old (real?) school photos and see what I end up with. In a very new-school move, however, I just purchased a Canon 24-70 for my 40d. Let the good times roll! ...

Ducks at Silver Lake

Some of the ducks on Silver Lake in south Everett, Washington. It was a bit of a grey day, so the black and white captures the mood well. It was a bit tricky getting close enough with my 50mm prime without disturbing them too much. Additional shots: ...

Kirkland Waterfront 2

Another shot from the Kirkland waterfront. Had to edit out a bit of lens flare in the sky from the strong pier lights. Will be more mindful of reducing/blocking lens flare before the shot, rather than in post. ...

Kirkland Waterfront 1

Went with my cousin, Scott Stedman, to Bellevue and the Kirkland waterfront for some night photography. I'm still very much a beginner, so many of my photos didn't turn out as I expected. However, I did get this one. From all the snaps I took, this shot has no pier. See what I did there? ...

Cribbage Board

My dad also gave me this homemade cribbage board for Christmas. It's very awesome! Natually, a shallow DOF photo was in order. Sorry, Drew. ...

Seattle from Kerry Park

Yeah, yeah, yeah... we've all seen this shot before. This is the classic "I'm-a-new-photographer-so-I'm-going-to-take-a-super-original-and-artistic-photo-of-the-Seattle-Skyline-from-Kerry-Park-which-no-one-has-ever-thought-of-doing-before" photo. But I couldn't help it. So deal with it. ...

Discovery Park Lighthouse

Went to Discovery Park in Seattle for the first time, drawn by the siren-song of the light house. It was a windy and bitterly cold day, and I think this photo captured the mood well. ...

The Face of Pic(k)tography

Portrait of Drew, taken in Discovery Park. This was more or less a candid shot, as I was playing with different depth-of-field settings and happened to snap this at the right time (and in focus!). By the way, Drew is a tremendous cinematographer and photographer. Be sure to check out his work as well. ...

Mukilteo Ferry

Well, so here it begins: another expensive hobby. Thanks to my dad and mom for giving me a Canon DSLR for Christmas a few weeks ago and reigniting a passion I had and enjoyed in highschool. This blog will be a photolog of some of my favorite shots as I learn and progress as a photographer. Bear with me. Spent the evening freezing my fingers off in the cold while fiddling with the settings on the camera and ended up with this shot of the 10:30pm Mukilteo Ferry heading to Kingston. Borrowed my brother Drew's 24-70mm lens and snapped this while balancing my camera on the rail of the pier. A tripod has since been ordered and is en route. ...
