RAW San Diego

20 May

artist_flyer_ee5cf7b331986d28036d438f43eea784I’m a bit late on posting this, since it’s happening TOMORROW!!…Time has been flying by though!  If any of you have been following me/my blog for a while, you know that I did a RAW show in Portland last year.  Since I did that show, I get an “out of state” show for free, as a perk.  Which worked out fantastically, since I moved to San Diego not too long after my show in Portland. 🙂  I have been working on building up my arsenal (ha) of San Diego photos, and I’m pretty excited that I have a bunch now (that I also need to post on here).  I have several canvases, but I also just started making some normal prints for this show.  I was mounting them on wood blocks before, but I don’t currently have the space to do that, and I am working on figuring out how to get the wood blocks now.  We’ll see if I decide to do that again.  For now, though, I have 8×10″ and 11×14″ prints, at what I think are pretty darn good prices. 🙂

The show will be at the House of Blues in San Diego, 6-10pm May 21.  Details on the photo to the right, and I linked the photo to my artist profile page where you can get tickets if you would like to attend the show.  The one I went to in Portland was a lot of fun, and I hear there will be an aerial performance artist at this one, so it should be SUPER awesome!

The photos below are my new stuff/what I will have at the show, with the exception of the canvases.  I got new business cards from MOO.com with my updated info, my new Square reader that is a chip reader (yay technology!), and my new prints in their new print rack for display, as well as my cute boxes that I put old 6×6″ and 8×10″ photos in that I’m clearancing out for $1 and $5 each, respectively.  They are mainly Portland photos.

If you are in San Diego, please come visit me and check it out! 🙂


San Diego

15 Sep

Here are some new photos from San Diego!!  I ordered canvas prints of the two skylines, and I have some more canvases to order, so I’m trying to figure out which ones to print.  If y’all have any input, I would love it!  None of these are for sale on Etsy yet, but I have some previous California photos on there (as well as Portland and one Seattle), if y’all would like to check them out, here!

As usual, click on the photos to see them full size. 🙂


20 Aug

So I realized there are a bunch of things I need to post…I’m not going to post them all at the same time, but I will give them to you one at a time. 🙂  First up, for participating in RAW Artists Portland back in April, I got a video!  It’s sorta an interview, but since they don’t put the questions in there, it’s basically me talking about my art.  So check it out to hear more about my photography, what inspires me, etc, and to see a little of it!

I was hoping they would edit out more of my “um”s and such, but oh well… 🙂

RAWartists: Spectrum

3 Apr

artist_flyer_10a099489f323d9b3d19694d98dbe190News!  I will be participating in the RAWartists show in Portland April 17, Spectrum.  I am moving to California, so this will be my last show in Portland.  Please come to the show, if you are in the area!  I will have my usual Hipstamatic/Oggl photos (basically everything that’s on here) printed on wood blocks, but I also printed a few large canvas prints from my Nikon.  The event will be a lot of fun, with visual art, fashion shows, performance art, musicians, hair and makeup shows, etc.  Tickets can be purchased from my profile, or by clicking the photo to the right.  I would LOVE if other Hipstamatic photographers in the area would come say hi!  And anyone else, of course. 🙂

Cathedral Park

6 Jan


Cathedral Park under the St Johns bridge in Portland is also amazing (the bridge is amazing). I hadn’t been there but had seen people’s photos, and knew I needed to go but it’s out of my way enough to need an actual planned trip. I went for the first time this year to see Trek in the Park, which is another story, but didn’t check out the whole area. We decided to do our engagement photos there, and it turns out there are a ton of amazing views. Since I was being photographed, I didn’t really take many photos, so I will have to go back.



Hollywood Theater

15 Dec

I can’t pick a favorite, so I present you with…The Hollywood Theater. Portland, OR. 🙂







New Portland photos!

5 Dec

Portland new w (72 of 95)I posted some new photos!  A couple weekends ago it was gorgeous and sunny, and not TERRIBLY cold (like it is now).  I have barely any photos of the East Side of Portland, and I was over on that side for something else, so I decided to drive around and stop whenever I wanted to take photos.  Normally I drive places and see things I want to take photos of but can’t stop, which is a very upsetting thing for a photographer.  So this was my opportunity to stop whenever I saw something.  I rearranged the gallery so the new ones are at the top, so you don’t have to scroll through the whole thing or scroll all the way to the bottom (but check out the others if you haven’t seen them yet!) Photos are on the Portland page here or you may click the photo to the right to get there also.  Enjoy! 🙂


12 Aug


Taken at a First Thursday show. I couldn’t really figure out if tho display was a semi-permanent thing and the other art was the First Thursday show, or if this was part of the show. Regardless, I thought it looked super cool. Also, took me forever to wait for a clear shot with no people in front.


Legacy Graduation

31 Jul

My first event photography!  Was actually a pretty fun event to be attending, even without photographing it…they had super yummy food.  Didn’t take any photos of that…I probably should have.  So for the event, I did candid shots of people chatting, then a “photobooth”, but I don’t have a remote, so I took the photos myself on my tripod, and then photos of the ceremony.  Conditions for the ceremony were not ideal, so I am only posting one of the group shots after they all received their awards.  This is a small sample.  Click the images to see them larger! 🙂
