After two and half years at seattlepi.com, one of my dream-jobs-come-true is coming to an end this Thursday. Whoa. It is incredibly difficult to put into words the experiences that have not only shaped me as a photographer, but as the man I am today – and all because of living the photographic life, largely through the beautiful madness of the PI. Following seven national internships throughout my college career, I was lucky enough to land my first “real” staff photographer job at SeattlePI.com in 2013. The rest is history. Working as a two-man photo team alongside the Terminator of photographers* (my older brother-from-another-mother, Joshua Trujillo) and the PI’s elite, compact, scrappy team has been a dream that defies even the most extensive of explanation. I am so, so, so honored and thankful to experience the world through the PI’s viewfinder. Starting in mid-August, I’ll be moving over to the Amazon-owned dpreview.com (Digital Photography Review) as a staff writer, reviewer & photographer. Don’t worry! Same city, similar industry, same endless passion for pictures and yes, I am still the same geek – just with a different lanyard around my neck.

*Editor’s note: Josh Trujillo has requested to let everyone who sees this status update know that he is crying into his coffee in the PI newsroom (sitting next to me).

One of the most awe-inducing things I've done in a while. Walking into the cooling tower of an abandoned nuclear power plant was most definitely a weekly highlight: http://goo.gl/almwg2

In case you aren't brimming with #pride coverage from around the nation... #Seattle held it down, as per usual: http://goo.gl/Qk7P3z

Nearly five days in the desert with good people, diverse music and absurdly visual culture. The annual SASQUATCH! Music Festival took over Washington's east. I'm headed off to sleep for what I hope is at least 24 hours: http://goo.gl/x2u4nm

Spring is here, and I'm not mad about it at all. Thankful to see the calendar filling back up with more things to experience, behind the camera or otherwise. Look back on March 2015 | In Pictures: http://goo.gl/aRfpZq

For my final seattlepi.com assignment last Thursday, Joshua Trujillo & I took to the air above a golden hour-y #Seattle to make images of the city's many unseen roof decks. Not a bad way to spend a "last" day: http://goo.gl/5FwIFf

Very, very excited to share a recent project with you all. Photographed a la "school pictures" we all grew up enduring, enjoy a portrait series of every doggie in the Seattle Police Department's K-9 Unit, all photographed over the course of a 14-hour shoot in the basement of the SPD HQ in downtown Seattle. Much planning, much errant saliva, much barking. Come meet Jaeger, Ziva, Ruger and more: http://goo.gl/nAd0Z6

For nearly a year, I hardly carried a personal camera around with me when not on the job. This past month, I doubled back. It's wild how many wonderful things happen in front of us every day, and, often, the proof can only be found in photographs. Looking back, on the blog.
