Local Farms, Local Food in Oregon

I'm working on a video project for King Estate Winery about the origins of the produce and meat that supplies KE's restaurant. It will touch on the importance of community, local farming, and land-use issues. While tromping through muddy fields with the rest of the crew, I was able to shoot a couple stills.

Fern's Edge Goat Dairy for King Estate Winery

Fern's Edge Goat Dairy is a small farm located in in Dexter, Oregon, that produces amazing goat cheese. I wish I had been able to shoot outside more, but it was a typical Oregon winter day... pouring rain. Hopefully I'll be able to go back soon.

Men's Basketball UO vs. Cal

I used two cameras to shoot this game, my D300 with a 50mm 1.8 for the action, and a 7D 17-35mm 2.8 for the low shots. I like the way the wide angle shots turned out. Bummer Oregon lost the game 81-71.

Dr. Vandana Shiva

University of Oregon Junior Point Guard Malcom Armstead at Matthew Knight Arena

He told he doesn't smile for pictures. I got one smile out of him.

I've had several assignments recently to photograph food. Here are a few of my favorites.
