I went to the Leavenworth Ski Hill late last month to photograph a memorial ski run to honor the three men who were caught up and killed in an avalanche on Stevens Pass. I wasn't sure what to expect but I had read that at the end of the memorial, skiers would be coming down the hill with lights of some kind. I had photographed a similar scene at Mission Ridge on a New Years Eve celebration but it had been about 20 years ago. I looked up some lens ...

Interesting lighting

As a documentary photographer, sometimes I end up making photographs in some very unusual lighting. Last Saturday night during the rail jam at Mission Ridge was one example. The organizers had the normal lights that are set up for skiing on the course but they also brought in two portable lighting units to intensify the light. I appreciated the extra light "volume" but it made for some difficult situations. I had to be careful of what I was shooting and from where.

The count

I covered the crowd of Town Toyota Center supporters who gathered for a photograph on the arena ice Monday night. Beyond covering it as a news event by showing an overall of some of the activity - beyond the staged, "official" photograph - I needed to make an image that I could create an accurate count from Tuesday morning.

A surprise at the finish

I went up the Methow valley on Saturday to photograph a biathlon competition at Liberty Bell High School.

Photos of a blowout

I went to Entiat last night to photograph the girls game with Warden, specifically to make some pictures of Entiat's star player, Mandy Southard. It's an odd gym with the baseline on one side so shallow I can't stand, let alone sit there to take photographs and on the other, there is almost too much room. I ended up shooting pictures from the stands in the first half before moving to the larger baseline at court level. How I do like to be low, shooting at the player's eye level.

Best and worst of 2011

I can't believe we are halfway through January already! Some time back I put together a photo gallery of what I think was my best work of 2011 - here's a link to that.
