Jürgen Moltmann, a German Protestant theologian, was in Seattle for a talk, not long ago and I was assigned by Seattle Pacific University to photograph him for their alumni publication Response. He was very interesting to photograph and I enjoyed hearing him speak about his book Theology of Hope.

His liberation theology is also interesting as it includes an understanding of both the oppressed and the oppressor as needing reconciliation. “Oppression has two sides: on one side there is the master, on the other side the slave… Oppression destroys humanity on both sides.”

New Hubble Telescope Photos

Astronomers have declared NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope a fully rejuvenated observatory with the release of observations from four of its six operating science instruments. Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland unveiled the images Weds 9 Sept 09 at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC.


“This marks a new beginning for Hubble,” said Ed Weiler, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “The telescope was given an extreme makeover and now is significantly more powerful than ever, well equipped to last into the next decade.”Topping the list of new views are colorful, multi-wavelength pictures of far-flung galaxies, a densely packed star cluster, an eerie “pillar of creation,” and a “butterfly” nebula…continue reading and see more photos at NASA.gov.

Seattle Home Backyard Twilight


I have been shooting some interiors and exteriors for a local interior design firm. This was from last night’s shoot of an eastside home. I need to remember that not all the good photos of houses are shot at sunset.

Corporate documentary photography

I have been documenting the construction of a new barber shop and hair salon called nola for the past 4-5 weeks and thought I would post some of the photos here. It is located in the Seattle neighbrhood of Fremont on the border with another neighborhood called Wallingford.

Mike Strassburger of Modern Dog was swinging a hammer and some other great tools today down at nola. They are really making progress towards opening. Despite not being done with construction, there has been a steady stream of clients for both Jenny and Brandon Trimble.

Teh west wall is just about ready with the panelling done. All that awaits is for the windows to be cut out and dropped in place.

Two underage clients Tula and Claire await their turn for a wash and dry at the sinks.
Photos are by Seattle wedding photographer Daniel Sheehan who is documenting the construction with his photography. More photos to follow as the construction continues and they finally get to a grand opening.

Panorama Photography – Large Group Photographs


Here is a recent sample of one of my specialities large group panoramas. This was at a wedding at an old mansion in Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati.

Fred and Jenn Portrait


Fred and Jenn, were married a few weeks ago at the Asian Art museum. I was a happy Seattle photographer, to get this shot of the two of them after the ceremony. What a great couple they they are. Fred is one of the key people vital to the running of the annual Earshot Jazz Festival among other events they put together.

Obama – Nov 5th NY Times


Finally got my hands on a rare copy of the November 5th New York Times, thanks to my friends Michael Moss who is a reporter there. I spoke with him on the 5th and even he could not put his hands on an extra copy. There were none left in the newsroom at the paper and there was a line of people in front of the building two blocks long waiting to buy a copy.

He let me know a day later he found one for me. I will put it away and give it to my daughters when they grow up.

Seattle Photographer – Rainbow Wedding Portrait


I just had to add this wonderful wedding photograph from Meredith and Michael’s wedding on August 9th. It had rained a lot the day of the wedding, in fact we had to call off the formal group photos we had planned outside the restaurant in from of a wall of grafitti. But sometime after the cake cutting and toast I took them up on the roodf deck when I saw that the sun had broke free just before sunset. When we got out on the roof we saw this rainbow and that is when I made this photograph.
All’s well that ends well.
