Santa Paws at PetSmart

I just spent the afternoon taking photos with my friends Jeni and James (pictured here as Santa) at PetSmart. We were raising money for the Oregon Ferret Shelter. We had a fun afternoon photographing our furry friends!

White House Photographers

I attended a talk given by four former White House photographers here at the Portland Art Museum on November 7th. David Hume Kennerly, Barbara Kinney, Eric Draper and Mike Davis told stories about what it is like to try to document the life of an American President. Very interesting talk and GREAT photos! I had a gig right before the talk, so I had my camera with me and took a couple of snaps...

Rep. Pat Schroeder in town for Rep. Kurt Schrader

Tonight, I had the opportunity to photograph former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder at an event to raise money for Kurt Schrader's campaign. It really took me back. I moved to Oregon to work on Catherine Webber's campaign for that same congressional seat back in 1994. I was only planning to live in Oregon long enough to get my candidate elected and then move to Washington, DC with her. Unfortunately, she lost by just 800 votes during the 1994 Republican Revolution. Is 2010 going to be a repeat of that unfortunate election?

Rep. Pat Schroeder and me in 1994.

Governor Barbara Roberts gave me a tour of the Governor's Mansion just a few days after I arrived in Oregon. Through Oregon NARAL, I had volunteered to serve a dinner at the mansion and all of the volunteers arrived early. The Governor graciously gave us a personal tour as we waited for the "real" guests to arrive.

And here I am with a sprightly young John Kitzhaber right before he was elected to his first term as Governor. He has a tough race this time around...

Certified Professional Photographer!

I just found out this week that I passed my certification! I am now a "CPP."

I went through this exam and image submission process to demonstrate to my clients that I am committed to photography as a profession, that I intend to run my photography business ethically and that I will continue my photography education.

I would like to encourage more photographers to support the certification process. Visit the Professional Photographer Certification Commission website if you would like to learn more.
