In Print: Tabor Bread in Edible Portland

a spread of photographs in Edible Portland featuring Tabor Bread

This is my absolute favorite kind of assignment because it combines everything I love in photography: portraits, captured moments, still life. It’s always a pleasure to photograph cool people doing great things in the world of food. Plus, Edible Portland’s pages always make my photos stand out. If you haven’t been there, you should definitely check out Tabor Bread.


In Print: Sip Northwest

Vitaly Paley and his team at Imperial Restaurant and Portland Penny Diner are on fire these days. It’s great to see them featured in the recent issue of Sip Northwest Magazine.sip


In Print: Oregon Home

Main spread of feature for Oregon Home shot by John Valls

When I win the Powerball, I’m going to have Jason Ball come over to my house and pick out all brand new furnishings for me. In the interim, I’ll settle for admiring his work. Here are some lovely interiors he designed featured in Oregon Home Magazine. Jon Taylor Carter of Oregon Home Magazine is the creative force behind this photo shoot.

We have really come to enjoy working with Jason Ball and his colleague, Emily. I’m trying to think of more excuses just to hang out with them.

If you’d like to see the entire feature written by Lucy Burningham, you will find it at the Oregon Home website.


In Print: Luxe Magazine

Especially in the days of smaller magazines and fewer features, it’s always a pleasure to see your work in a big, glossy, gorgeous magazine. This from the latest issue of Luxe, the go-to resource for design, decorating, architecture and renovation.


In Print: QuarterTwenty

Portland is chock full of interesting and quirky businesses that live in the space between art and fabrication. I’ll bet Matt Beitz, who has QuarterTwenty would say there’s no difference. The way he does it, fabrication IS art. We had the pleasure of working with Matt shooting a few of his pieces for a catalog. He’s also a great guy and has helped us make some very nice photo surfaces. Thanks, Matt.


In Print: Edible Portland

The Mckibben Ranch, featured in the Winter Issue of Edible Portland is my favorite kind of assignment. When I’m asked to shoot food stories that involve innovators, handsome animals and beautiful environments I’m in my element. edible-cover


In Print: Oregon Home

I love it when I see a double truck. It’s kinda like a home run to me. This Oregon Home assignment was super to shoot with art director Sophie Goodwin.  Sophie brought all of the elements together to make the day roll seamlessly so I could explore the way this new Craftman style home unfolds; beautifully.


In Print: Ultratravel

Oregon wine and travel photos in the UK's Telegraph

Gotta just love the name, right?  Ultratravel.  Picture Editor Joe Plimmer of the UK’s Telegraph called us up to shoot a story on the food, wine & coffee scene around Oregon for their international travel mag, Ultratravel. Opening spread is pictured here.
