Returned to Seattle this morning after another relaxing weekend on Whidbey Island... and a new month had started. Looking back, here's February 2015 | In Pictures, on the blog: http://goo.gl/2Ivmu7

What. A. Week. Finally getting a "down day" with the unstoppable SB49 Seattle PI crew (Nick Eaton, Stephen Cohen). Feeling physically abused, yet euphoric, following my second Super Bowl experience in two years. Please enjoy the photographic fruits of Joshua Trujillo and myself from yesterday's spectacle. The amount of hustle that went into this was... astronomical.

Note: Don't let Brady's stupid (and kinda cute) face stop you from reliving incredible Seahawks moments from Super Bowl XLIX: http://goo.gl/CHP6wl

A photographer's greatest joy & reflection, all year round. Alongside coworker Joshua Trujillo (and interns Joshua Bessex & Anna Erickson), I'm so proud to present The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's "Photos of the Year 2014." Very lucky to do what I love alongside those that I care about in a badass city. Kick back and enjoy the blood, sweat and tears shed to document this community in the upper left corner of the US.

Undoubtedly one of the busiest (yet photographically barren) months I can remember. Got lucky with a couple. Enjoy!

Thank you Geoffrey Hiller (at "Verve Photo: The New Breed of Documentary Photographers") for this kind feature of an image of mine to accompany as much of an interpretation of this line of work that I could cram into a couple sentences. Hopefully this rings true with others. Many thanks. A quick read: enjoy!

Ample time has passed, so I can do this now... right? A full wrap / write up of my second Super Bowl experience, two years in a row. Unbelievable - as in, not believable - that opportunities like this came about again.

Enjoy!: http://goo.gl/9bS2lZ

With the big game just around the corner, what better time than the present to look back at the defining moments of the 2014/2015 #football season? Enjoy our "Photos of the Year - #Seahawks edition," as selected by seattlepi.com #photographers Josh Trujillo & Jordan Stead.

Six months have passed, and I can finally show you "how I spent my summer vacation." The answer is: in the nude, photographing nudists in Washington state, documenting an often-misunderstood lifestyle. Keep an open mind and please enjoy my long-term story of 2014, "Inside nudist culture in Washington." It's getting cold, so I'm gonna put clothes on now.

If you know me, you know I'm a nerd. So I get pretty jazzed to play with new toys with cool people in the Pacific Northwest. Such as life in this dpreview.com feature as I host a video review of the brand new Samsung NX1 camera body alongside Brit stud Barney Britton. If you've got 15 minutes to either 1) collect fodder to make fun of me with, or, 2) are curious about one of the coolest cameras I've gotten my hands on in quite some time... go for it!

Many thanks to director Eric Becker & shooter Lou Karsen for their best attempt at making my waterlogged body look sleek.

October has long been a transition month. Summer moves into fall, holidays approach with reckless abandon, sportz (football) captures everyone's attention and you finally realize that you can't go to work in cutoff jeans and a ratty T-shirt like you could in the late July heat. The only constant? Selfies.
