Darryl and Sara are my favs.  They can’t take a bad picture, I’ve tried.
They asked me to do a some professional business portraits for them for their new website at Olio Communications.  I love shooting near the Pearl district in Portland.  So much inspiration to be had.

Business portraits time.  I photographed this great looking crew from Seasons Management last year, using my mobile studio.  Which includes a basic white background and a couple of lights.  However, this year they were looking for something a little more environmental.

For the past couple of years I’ve worked with Building Champions and helped cover their event The Experience purely through still photography.  This year we kicked it up a notch and added video to mix.

Video is a whole new beast, but I love it.  Also being able to use the same equipment that I use for shooting stills (Canon 5D Mark II), makes things so versatile.

Be sure to switch over the quality to HD.

I was originally scheduled to go to El Salvador during the spring time this year, however, because of gang violence local workers with Agros decided to cancel that trip.

This news was devastating for several reason, but mostly because that meant that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to go down there for at least another six months (if not longer).  So when we arrived in the village our church hadn’t been there in over a year.  Along with the “longtime-no-see” hugs, we arrived during a milestone in the villages history.  They were finally going to get a well to water their land.  For years now each villager has been hand watering their plots of land.  The majority of the farmers are currently growing corn and sesame seeds.  To have the opportunity of easier water access will give them the ability to grow niche crops that they wouldn’t otherwise have the been able to cultivate during the dry season.

My role in this trip was actually not to take photographs, but rather film a couple of family life stories.

So stay tuned over the next couple of months for these videos.
