It was a rainy Friday night at Civic Field in Bellingham, Wash. The battle for dominance begins. A Storm was about to hit. The Squalicum Storm hosted the Bonney Lake Panthers in the first round of the Division 3A state playoffs. The Storm lost 24 to 7 to the Panthers.
From landscapes, to people throwing fire, to an actress, July was a pretty busy month for me. A lot of Bellingham Herald assignments, some personal projects, and a Getty gig that was super fun. Here is a recap of what I shot this past month.
It was a beautiful sunny day the Sunday before the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, over 200 supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders gathered to show support for Vermont Senator. Still “Feelin’ the Bern,” they began their march at Bellingham City Hall at the intersection of Commercial Avenue and Lottie Street.

On Friday, I photographed the actress, and now fashion designer, Melissa McCarthy at Nordstrom Seattle. The flagship store hosted the event where she announced her new line: Melissa McCarthy Seven7.
It was a simple assignment from Getty Images: photograph McCarthy posing with fans as well as a few candid photos. Pretty easy.
I’ve been a bit busy with assignments and personal projects. I’ve a lot of blogs or maybe just a few big ones to write so I can play catch-up. First, I’ll post a few quickies from weekend shoots.
On Saturday July 9, 2016, I photographed the 50th annual Chuckanut Foot Race for The Bellingham Herald. It’s a 7 mile run that starts at Fairhaven Marine Park and ends at Larrabee State Park. The faster runners do it in about 35 minutes, while most average about an hour.
