Honda in Oregon

A few weeks ago I did a job for Honda, focused on iconic areas of NW Oregon. We started the fast-paced three day shoot in Hood River, then sped out to Cannon Beach later that first day to catch the sunset behind Haystack Rock. On our way back from the coast we got detoured about an hour-and-a-half out of our way due to tunnel maintenence, which was very unfortunate given that we had an early call the next morning. Bonus was that we had an RV to work out of for the three days, so it was easy enough to relax a bit on the way back to town. Our next two days were spread over several locations around Portland, including the Hawthorne Bridge, a Food Cart pod downtown, The Rose Gardens, The Chinese Gardens, the Pearl District, the Crystal Ballroom, and the old Wilson High School.

It was fast and furious, but lots of fun nonetheless. Great bunch of crew and talent to work with, including the super cool and capable crew of Gearhead Grip and Electric, who were pinacle in pulling off the whole thing smoothly.

Catching up with Chris Ryan Photography

Feeling terribly guilty for not having made a blog post in ages, I pulled a bunch of cool images from shoots that took place in the last few weeks of 2010. Enjoy, and look for regular posts to pick up again in 2011.

I did this shot as part of a challenge by another fine food photographer for his ongoing project, Catching the Ox.
