Children’s Cancer Association Images

I am continuing to create images for families who are involved with the Children’s Cancer Association.  Next up: shooting the 2009 Hero Wall, which is comprised of 25 portraits of medically fragile children.  The Hero Wall travels all around the area to various corporations (yes, you can sponsor the Hero Wall!) and then permanently resides at the CCA office.

This year’s Hero Wall will be unveiled on September 13 at Noon in front of Portland’s World Trade Center.  Many thanks to Pro Photo Supply for generously donating post processing and large format printing of the images, and to many people who assist with the shoots.




Lunaria Invitational Show

Cathy Cheney from the Portland Business Journal invited me to join an art show that opens this week in the Silverton gallery, Lunaria.  She went to great lengths to ensure that I was able to participate while I was away in the DR Congo:  coming to my studio to select an image, picking it up at Pro Photo Supply after it was printed, and getting it framed and ready for the show.  Thank you, Cathy!

Nepal Image Gets Photo of the Year Award


I was half groggy from jetlag after returning from the Congo when I got the text message from friend Jay that my photo of a Nepalese woman had won the “Photo of the Year” award in the professional cateogory last weekend.  Jay was at the gala at Weiden + Kennedy, and he wondered if I was in the crowd, but I was home in my jams wondering if I should ever travel again.  Such a great surprise after a grueling week, one which left me running away from a potential clash between rebel forces in the DRC.  Maybe I should keep at it?
