High Cascade Snowboard Photography Workshop – Summertime Snow

Here are a couple snaps from this year’s High Cascade Snowboard Photography Workshop’s Night Shoot.  If I’ve done my math correctly, this is the 12th Annual Workshop.   This program has sprouted a lot of photography talent over the years.   Thank you Andy Wright, Tim Zimmerman and Chris Wellhausen for holding it down and for having me as a guest instructor/lecturer this year.

Fort Steven’s State Park on the Beach in Warrenton, Oregon

I mentioned in my last post that I was on my way to take a hike at Fort Steven’s State Park.  It’s been such a beautiful and dry year here on the Oregon Coast.   Below are few photos from our hike.   My new friend and recent Colorado transplant, Sara and her man’s “best friend” Sonoma joined me.  They are adorable models.

Future Photo Studio in Astoria, Oregon

Some friends I’ve met through Lightbox Photographic are teaming up to make the dream of a photo studio space a reality.  Currently in the renovation process, I met up with a few of the member’s yesterday in Astoria, Oregon.  Each individual involved has a rich background in photography, but more importantly has a deep motivation, vision and passion for the craft of photography.  These are a few images from yesterday.
