When the phone rings at 9pm in the middle of a snowstorm, you start thinking fast: is someone hurt? do I need to bundle up and go fight the snow? Is it Puget Sound Energy calling to ask me to go into the storm to take photos?
Thankfully, it wasn’t anyone in distress. Off I went into the snow to earn my daily bread. When brides, families and models are their most camera-shy, these guys were at their best.

The idea for this came in a flash one morning, so I drew the design and some rough sketches out on the back of a receipt. I had been doing design work for the water polo team and everything I had thrown at them had been well-received. Thankfully, the decision-makers were into this idea as well, so I arranged the shoot during the following week, got the frames I needed in about 20 minutes (plus a handful of “safety” frames, just in case one of them didn’t fit the design well when put together), and had the poster finished within an hour of importing the RAW files from the CF card.
The main design goal was to have something high-impact, readable and attention-grabbing that could be photocopied on B&W.
Love it or hate it, it was gratifying to see the initial concept become a reality without having to cut any corners or mitigate details.
UPDATE: Due to a rainy forecast, the workshop has been moved to the Seattle Center House! Meet at the North entrance to the Center House, which is on the end closer to the fountain and football field.

Video Workshop: Better 60p Slow-motion
Starting at 2pm at the Seattle Center House, Garrett Gibbons will be leading a shoot and discussion about better using the 60p function of recent DSLR cameras for slow-motion.
Our special guests will be breakdancers from the Flying Sneakers Cru, who are coming to battle and break it down so we can have some sweet footage. Make sure to check out their performances and Garrett’s slow-motion work on the 7D in the Victor Shade “Soothsayer” music video.
Around 3pm at Seattle Center, Jake Chapman will lead a workshop on fashion and wedding photography, emphasizing fusion techniques unique to HDSLRs. Jake’s one-light strobe photography is practical, versatile and gorgeous.
Bring your strobes, a flash trigger if you have one, or just a pair of listening ears. Your photography will improve as you work through lighting solutions with Jake and the group.
Bring friends and spread the word!
