Posing in Portland

Last month, I had the privilege of posing once again for photographer R. Edward Jack, at a fantastic studio space in Portland, Oregon. I have posed for him several times before, and always got some of my favorite photos of myself as a result.

This time, he paired me with Mick, a Portland model he has shot before, and had always wanted to get some shots of us together, knowing we'd hit it off well. Above, the proof he was right.

It's always enlightening and educational to step in front of the camera for a change, and I always trust R. to make it fun as well. I recorded several videos of the session--I might just post one of them as well. I also hope to shoot some models at that studio space in Portland someday...

The Illustrated Man

Self-Portrait, May 2003

Self Portrait with Larry's illustration, July 2014

I have an online crush on writer/singer/illustrator Larry Duplechan, author of the groundbreaking novel Blackbird (recently made into a film directed by Patrick Ian Polk) and other wonderful books. Last spring, I sent him a photo of myself, and he asked if he could do an illustration of it. I enthusiastically agreed and sent him a high-resolution version of the photograph.

Just this week, a print of Larry's illustration of me arrived in my mailbox. I am thrilled. Now, Larry owes me a photoshoot. :)

Proud Pose

At the 2014 LGBTQ Pride Festival in Seattle, one had the opportunity to pose for photos with these fine gentlemen at the Under U 4 Men booth. I shot about 180 photos of boys and girls doing just that. More Pride pictures to come in the days ahead.

Exploring Portlandia

Recently, I traveled to Portland, Oregon, to once again photograph the World Naked Bike Ride, as well as shoot some models and even pose for a photographer myself. I will put WNBR shots in another post. Unfortunately, the other photoshoot plans didn't pan out (yet). But here's some of my shots while just walking around and exploring this wonderful city.
