Well, after a long time-off from Blog posting, it is now time to get back in the blog “game” and update you all with some new material! But before all that I have some great news to announce…..I have recently accepted a teaching position at Mt. Hood Community College in the Integrated Media Program! I will be teaching along side Justin Myers, teaching the Advanced Lighting course to the Professional Photography students! I am very excited to share my photo knowledge with them and look forward to the next couple months of intense photography classes and training.
Now, back-tracking and reviewing the past years-worth of missed blog opportunities is going to be tough, but basically I have been busy! Here’s a very long, run-on sentence worth of the past 7 months:
My last blog post left off with Sarah & Ryan’s wedding from the Silcox Hut on Mt. Hood. After that experience, in February, I went to ex Trail Blazer, Bill Walton’s, house in San Diego with Blazers, took the Primitive Performace rally driving school with Paul Eklund , shot action photos at the NWAACC Basketball Championships in Tri Cities, WA., in March, and shot a wedding and went to the Seattle Supercross event in April. In May, I shot action photos and VIDEOS of the Oregon Trail Rally in Dufur, OR, shot action photos in Portland of the NWAACC Softball Championships , and shot more action photos of the NWAACC Baseball Championships in Longview, WA. Also in May I accepted the team photographer position with a local IBL basketball team, the Vancouver Volcanoes, and I photographed 6 home games through mid-June. June was a mix of graduation ceremonies, wedding meetings, etc, and the month ended with an Aerial photo mission over Portland with Oregon Air Photo, a new partnership formed with Bryan Heim Photography. July was the beginning of wedding season with 4 weddings: Rebecca & Frank, Austin & Stewart, Whitney & Jace, and Angela & Dan. August was another wedding month with 6 total: Amanda & Levi, Amy & Ben, Kelsey & Adam, Coutrney & Charlie, Kristen & Dustin, Engagements for Brenda’s cousin Michelle & Curt, and Jenny & TJ….CONGRATS TO ALL NEWLEYWEDS, and thanks so much for trusting me to cover your special day, WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!!
I wont quite get into September yet in this post so stay tuned as I am going to challenge myself along with my new students to make a blog post, or simply a photo post every day til classes end on December 6th! That should make for some interesting content :>)
Ok, thanks for reading all this and please feel free to add comments and thoughts in the future on whatever ends up here! Cheers!
