Portrait of cartographer, environmentalist and adventurer Marty Schnure.
I love shooting for Luxe. Assignments from their photo editor include meeting an inspired artist, builder or designer and communicating their work for the Luxe readers. To do my best here I’m listening and looking with all I have, translating their vision through mine. http://www.parker.works/
John and I always joke that people in the photography or communication biz rarely take the time to use their talents on themselves. That’s why we were super psyched to work with the talented people at Flint Design as they prepare to update their own website. They asked for “portraits with personality, something a little more than basic head shots.” We had so much fun working with them to make this great set of photos at their studio. Katherine Sealy from Event Cosmetics came in to polish everyone’s look and we all collaborated on selecting clothing that looked great on their blue wall and made a cohesive set of photos. If your goals require a portraits that make you look great, give us a jingle. We can put together a shoot plan that is exactly right for you.
Acclaimed Chef Cathy Whims and crew are getting ready to open Enoteca Nostrana. Think of southern Italy’s bold flavors of chile, anchovy, and capers. We shot these for a Portland Monthly Magazine preview. Can’t wait to explore Cathy’s take on these flavors!
Today I’ve been rooting around the archives in order to put together a special subject portfolio. This gentleman’s expression, for some reason, makes me feel calm and happy. It’s interesting to think that something simple, like a picture, can change your mood.
A common situation we’re often asked to help sort out is, how can a business creatively photograph their employees in a way that can be added to, as the business grows? Or even changes offices?
Our answer: we came up with a snappy lighting scheme and photographed each staff member on a white background. We encouraged each person to get in touch with their inner diva and express why they love what they do at work. This set of images was for our friends at ORANGEWALLstudio. They’re up ‘n running with this set of images, and as they grow we can come back and family in their new hires.
When Tasting Table called to photograph Mika Paredes, Chef de Cuisine at Beast, I jumped at the opportunity. Mika is super cool, super nice and oh yeah, she has a look that I see as a beautiful combination of tough and soft. Shooting with her was going to be awesome, and I loved creating a mood through the lighting that reflected her look, her aura. You can see Mika’s recipe and the other featured Sous Chefs on the Tasting Table site here.
