I really enjoyed teaching a basic lighting class at Mt Hood Community College this past term. On the last day of class, I asked the students to come to my studio. When they got there, Darcelle, a Portland drag queen icon was there, ready to be photographed. We had a blast! What an amazing subject she is.
Luz Gallery will be printing a limited run of two images from Ethiopia. I will be donating all of my proceeds during December and January to our Footsteps To Healing medical project in Mota, Ethiopia. Once this edition sells out, these two images at this 6X9 will be retired.

I have been in awe of Heidi Swift for many, many years. I have not seen her in about six months, and all of a sudden, she writes this post about me. I am speechless.
I will be teaching another class this March at Newspace Center For Photography. Hotshot portraits is a great way to get your hands into various lighting techniques, all in one day, and not feel intimidated by the equipment! And the latter part of the day will be spent photographing your friends and loved ones.
Sign up soon – we are limiting the class size on this one.
Just completed a series of photos for the new restaurant, FIN. (Some of the images definitely need contrast boost…not sure why they appear flat in the article.)
If you like raw fish prepared in a delicate manner, you will love FIN!
KEEN just posted a blog entry about their donations of shoes to our ongoing project in Ethiopia. We are very grateful to KEEN for the donations of these shoes so that rural Ethiopian women will walk home more comfortably after their surgeries.
Melkamnesh loves her new KEEN shoes!
