NM Holga :: Seattle Travel Photographer

When using Holga cameras you never know what you're going to get. The first time I used mine I liked 2 shots and the rest went into the garbage. I decided to give it another try (thankfully) and the 2nd time around I loved every single print! The light leaks and blurring actually worked in my favor that time and I decided that my Holga wasn't so bad afterall. I took it with me to New Mexico and finally had the film developed last week. Thought I'd share a couple here...

firefighters :: Seattle Portrait Photographer

I had an awesome opportunity to photograph my friend Doug and his fellow trainees at the Fire Training Academy in North Bend. It was so different from anything I've photographed and it gave me a greater appreciation for what Doug and the other students go through in order to become firefighters. 

As I was driving home from the facility, I kept thinking that I should have said thank you to everyone. It takes a truly selfless person to do what these men and women will be doing...putting themselves in danger's way...possibly sacrificing their lives...all in order to save people they don't know. So I'm taking the opportunity now to say thank you to everyone that puts their life on the line to help others.
