Portland Fashion Week, 2010

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

I spent a few hours on the first two nights documenting the scene at the Vigor Industrial Shipyards on Swan Island, in Portland, Ore. There was some awesome creative energy there not only from the designers and models but the other photographers as well. It was really interesting to see how a runway show comes together. PORTLAND, ORE., - 10/6/10 - Models wait outside the huge building at the Vigor Industrials Shipyards as day one of Portland Fashion Week, Wed., Oct 6, 2010, got underway. The program offered not the usual runway show, but an installation-style showcase for a handful of local creators. On either side of the black runway were tableaus of various sorts, with models and mannequins wearing examples of the work of such designers as Adam Andreas, milliner Dayna Pinkham and Dawn Sharp.

iPhone Snaps, 2010

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

A fellow pro photog is curating a gallery show of iPhone images and asked me to submit some photos. The only rule is that they show "Portland". This is what I'm going to submit.

Here's an audio slideshow I edited

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

Brent Wojahn, Beth Nakamura and I shot the Portland Beavers last game. Actually, Beth shot several games leading up the final game so most of the photos are hers. She had some very nice images and totally nailed it when one of the players threw a cup of water in another players face. I walked around PGE Park all day and gathered audio. With the help of Judy Siviglia, I edited and put the photos over the audio. It was quite a process and a very long day. Kraig Scattarella just posted the timelapse we shot. Bruce set up two cameras, one on the roof of PGE Park and the other on the roof of The Oregonian building across from PGE Park. I set up a camera firing every five minutes from a stairwell at the Mac Club that was pointed at the scoreboard.

Portland Beavers radio announcer Rich Burk was generous enough to email us his radio clips from the game. His voice made very cool and I really appreciate him doing that.

Here it is:

Lady Gaga at the Rose Garden, Aug. 19, 2010

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

Last night I shot Lady Gaga at the Rose Garden. We were ushered in for two songs and escorted from the building. We were not allowed to shoot fans during the show, which is too bad, because they were totally into it and most of them were dressed up in some way. I'd like to say she had a good show or tell you something about it, but having only seen two songs, I just don't know. 8/19/2010 - PORTLAND, ORE. - Lady Gaga performs at the Rose Garden, Thurs., Aug. 19, 2010.

The Portland Timbers Seen Through a Canon 800mm/5.6L IS

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

I'm currently testing a Canon 800mm/5.6L IS lens and a Canon 1D Mark IV camera. I shot this Timbers game at ISO's from 2500 to 5000 as the light changed. I was very impressed with the focusing and handling ability of the lens. It's is a large and long, but not that heavy. I think a 400/2.8 is more difficult to handle. I especially like the reach from at the goal. What it was perfect.

5th annual Street of Eames tour in Portland

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

Instead, one of the founding principals of Boora Architects smiles, his bright eyes scanning the double-door front entry to the low-slung, California-style ranch snuggled into the Southwest Portland hills. "Hello," Nicole Olszewski says, standing in the doorway, 1 1/2-year-old Grace perched on her hip.

Just over two years ago, Nicole and Brett Olszewski bought the house Oringdulph designed and his brother built.

Oden Down, Roy Up

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

The Trail Blazers suffered a potentially devastating setback Saturday night against the Houston Rockets as one of the faces of the franchise suffered another serious injury. Greg Oden, one of the few bright spots in what has been a discouraging start to the season, fractured the patella in his left knee and will likely miss the rest of the season.
