Photos: A Day in Chicago

Chicago is one of those great American cities that I didn't quite get until recently. It's likely because my first visit almost six years ago was in the dead of winter. This time around, I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago to assist with photographing a large conference. After shooting hundreds of images a day for four days, I had about a day and

Photos: Glacier National Park in Montana

Arguably one of the earth's most gorgeous places is the wilderness area of Montana known as Glacier National Park. Encompassing 1,583 square miles, the park contains over 700 miles of hiking trails and is crossed by driving the scenic and mountainous Going-to-the-Sun Road. As a child, I recall a family vacation to Glacier National Park with my parents, younger brother, and grandmother in which we spent

Photos: Pike Place Market for Visit Seattle

Pike Place Market is one of those iconic, albeit touristy, parts of Seattle that I just can't fall out of love with. No matter the season, it's always a vibrant and bustling part of the city that I just love strolling through to sample some fresh cut fruit, chat with vendors, listen to buskers, and of course watch the crowd gather around for the famous fish

Photos: Gabriola Island and Victoria, B.C.

Living in Seattle, we are incredibly lucky to be just a stone's throw away from British Columbia. The Canada border is a mere 2.5 hour drive north from Seattle, and most of the time it's a relatively peaceful and scenic drive. This past 4th of July, Martin and I took our annual Independence Day road trip north to B.C. Previous years saw us go south

Photos: Bangkok, Thailand

I spent the first couple weeks of March backpacking around Thailand on a mostly-solo trip through Bangkok and Krabi. While it wasn't my first time traveling alone or traveling through Southeast Asia, it was my first time visiting Thailand. The trip was a much needed period of relaxation, adventure, and reflection that spurred lots of interesting travel stories, including having my passport stolen in Bangkok and

Annual Review: Best of 2013 Photos

2013 was an interesting and semi-transitional year photo-wise, as it included more "photos for business" than "photos for fun," although certainly fun was had in all events! I added 2.0 terrabytes worth of data to my already full hard drives, which is pretty crazy. It took a while just to sort through all of the data, not to mention attempt to recap and pull out

Photos: Lanikai Pillboxes

This fall trip to Hawaii has been full of work, from shooting 2 food festivals and documenting 13 farmers and their farms. It's been hard to find the time to take a break from working, but before my trip drew to a close, I was determined to get outdoors and tackle the Lanikai Pillboxes hike on Windward Oahu to get those postcard photo shots I'd

Photos: Whalewatching with Real Housewives of Miami’s Adriana De Moura

Among the most fun days of a freelance photographer is the opportunity to travel and take photos. When I was contacted about the possibility of photographing Real Housewives of Miami star Adriana De Moura in Seattle, I assumed it would be a quick and simple fashion shoot, probably at her hotel at the Four Seasons. The last thing I was expecting was to spend the

Photos: Samish Bay and Bow-Edison Weekend Road Trip

Looking for a quick trip out of town for less than a day? Consider Samish Bay! Last weekend, I found myself skimming through a hard copy of Seattle Weekly, something I haven't done in ages. Naturally, the food & drink section  caught and held my attention the longest, mostly because of one article whose headline made me start drooling. "Quest for the Perfect (Oyster) Picnic: A
