John Finch Park

On my last trip to Spokane, Washington a friend of mine took me for a little tour around John A. Finch Park. Even though most of the leaves had already fallen off the trees there was surprisingly still a lot of photographer buzzing around shooting photos. We must have seen at least 7 or 8 photographers …

A Shot with Joshua

Summer Night Selfie

Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” …

Adventure of a Lifetime

Portland City Gym

Pre-Focus Run

I like getting pictures of people running from this part of the city. The skyline background just does it for me somehow. On this day I posed a bit of challenge to myself. I wanted to get a shot of someone running, well, , , a woman running, because people like pictures of women running …

Street Shots
