Video lets me go further with storytelling..... The same cameras that I use for photography are GREAT film-making cameras. I also have the sound equipment, lighting, other equipment, and know-how to produce high quality HD video. I like to use fusion.......The fusion of video, stills, voice-over, time lapse, music, effects. I'm in a great position to use all of this material in producing great storytelling video. For examples, see my sites on Vimeo and YouTube (buttons On The Sides), both my professional and personal video is there.

Engagement Photos - A Slideshow
Had a lot of fun shooting these engagement photos of Adrienne Marie & Michaeljo. The days started out cloudy, but we had full sun by the end. Shot these at several Seattle locations.
Milo turned 1. Parents Gretchen and Chris gave me a great opportunity to photograph him. Milo's images just kill me. His gaze so straight, direct, bare. I got so many images of him that I just love. They are a great family, and were easy and fun to spend time with.
Dolly Turns 80
Dolly, beloved by all, had her 80th birthday. I spent a couple of hours with her, photographing her, trying to make 'the' portrait of her in her beautiful home. At the end of the session, I shot a short video of her expressing her gratitude about life, and made this short clip.
I got to photography Elise in her first few weeks, at home. When I arrived, she was asleep on her parents bed. Great light flowing in. After she woke, some great moments of fully eyed awareness.....Elise resting in her father's hand is one of my favorite images.
Steve and Judi
I joined Steve and Judi at their rehearsal. Beautiful day, beautiful place - Hidden Meadows in Snohomish. They, the wedding party, had so much fun. I got some photos of the couple, their day, that I love......this video is a slideshow of those images.
