A really good photographer will never let you have a bad hair day.

Lets face it for many of us, just the mention of a head shot appointment brings out a zit on the tip of our nose. If you’re getting a little older like me, some of those blemishes are permanent. When your photographer is a skilled Photoshop professional, you can be assured that your photo will always look great.

I took this photo of Aaron yesterday. You can see what it looked like out of the camera and after I touched it up in Photoshop. Click on it for a larger view.


Meet Aaron, he’s another one of my great clients.

If you know me, then you know I love coffee.

I love coffee and when I’m slammed you might see me at the drive in window at Starbucks.  When I have time, I like to go to the small shops that roast their own beans. Like Brown and Company Coffee on 15th Ave East in Shoreline. They make a great Latte and from what I hear really great hot chocolate.

I stopped by Camp Long today between shoots.

This little guy wanted his photo taken. He sat very patiently as I unpacked a suitable camera and mounted up my telephoto lens. He’s quite spectacular in an ordinary sort of way.

Don’t you think the the Camp Long main building would look better if they lost the parking lot and planted grass in front. http://www.seattle.gov/parks/environment/history.htm

This is Bernadette, She is a friend of Bev’s.

One of the things I like most about my job is being able to shoot from downtown roof tops.
