Activism



I spent my Sunday afternoon in the company of some very motivated and passionate activists, working hard to register voters and educate folks why they should approve Referendum 71, the effort to repeal Domestic Partnerships in Washington State. (A vote to "Approve" is a vote to keep those rights.) Many thanks to Josh Castle, activist-extraordinaire, and everyone who helped out today.
More photos from the day here.

The Return of Jaison



My good friend (and occasional model and photographer in his own right) Jaison came to visit this past week. He had posed for me earlier this year, and we did two more shoots this weekend, netting over a thousand photos. I will post more images soon...

The Other Side


Every so often, when I'm shooting a model who himself is a photographer, I hand the camera to him and get a few shots of me. Here's one from last night's shoot with Jaison. (Though the text appears to be added to the shot, it actually is on the shirt.)

For The Good of the Country










On September 3, I took part in a rally in support of Barack Obama's efforts to reform the health care system. An estimated 3,000 supporters showed up (and were completely ignored by local media), as well as a small contingent of counter-demonstrators, screaming about the dangers of Socialism. I spoke with one of them in depth, who revealed himself to be a Ron Paul supporter. It was an interesting conversation, to say the least. I thanked him for showing up, even though he was completely opposed to the effort I was there to support, because I believe in free speech, even when I disagree with the content. More photos (and signage designs) here.

At the Last Minute, Part 2





While I was shooting Cory outside at the parking garage, Bucephalus phoned to find out if he could still join the shoot. We peeked over the edge of the garage to see Buce at the studio door below and waved him on up. After some shots at the location, we went back to the studio for some more intimate photos...
