Raleigh Bikes contracted me to shoot four days of bike lifestyle imagery in 2017. These included urban lifestyle and rural road and road/off-road riding. When Raleigh approached me for this shoot, they were looking for some guidance on specific locations in their backyard in Washington State. I suggested some urban locations in Seattle and pitched a day of shooting in the Methow Valley in Eastern Washington, which ended up being our final day of shooting over the course of six months.
I've had a super busy start to 2016. I recently did a fantastic two day shoot for Boston based Topo Athletic. Day one was an urban running and fitness shoot in Seattle, including road and track with a mix of natural light and strobes. Day two was a rural running and lifestyle shoot in the Columbia River Gorge between Oregon and Washington, including capturing drone stills and video. With these two completely different days of shooting, I was able to leverage the diversity of the Northwest as well as my knowledge of this area to capture a wide range of locations and images in only two days of shooting.
This is my third shoot in the past year with Topo Athletic and it was great to work with them again as they are becoming a regular client.
