I’ve been putting together a video for MCF from my time in Arizona- came upon this image that I took my last day there. I’d decided to get up before dawn for the drive down to Flagstaff, knowing I’d arrive several hours early. I wanted one last crack at that gorgeous desert light.

Zulily. Blue Nile. Now Home Depot. The first two he founded- he chairs all three. Wow. I can change the brakes on my van…how does that stack up?

It’s not like there are maps drawn up to where folks poach trees. I was given GPS coordinates and told...
I recently did some shooting in Tacoma for the good people at Saga City Media. The redesign on this vistors guide is sharp, and it totally makes sense that it’s born of the same crew that puts out Seattle Met.

I’m here for the Marguerite Casey Foundation with writer Claudia Rowe, digging into land rights stuff and health issues involving the Navajo Generating Station, one of the nation’s dirtiest coal-fire power plants. There is a lot...

This was a tough assignment. Though super interesting to hear folks debate HB 1044 (the abortion mandate bill), nothing really lent itself to super interesting photos. Kudos for keeping it civil people, but man…making my job harder.
UW’s Dr. Rosemarie Fernandez recently published a study indicating family members who were able to observe CPR and other resuscitation efforts on dying loved ones experienced greatly reduced post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. Full story here.
