With Lana Nyman

Lana and I have gotten together a few times now to take photos and it’s always pretty enjoyable. She resembles a younger, more easily-gotten-ahold-of Amanda Seyfried, which is braggable. And like so many of my recent personal shoots, having convened, we decided to throw a few old blankets into the truck and head down the river into the Columbia Gorge. I should mention it was freezing outside. I should also mention that I may have gotten a speeding ticket (but it was a set up, I swear). So yeah, it’s a good thing that the shots ended up turning out, or else it would have been a bit hard to swallow my Christmas present from the Gresham PD.

Speaking of which, I was hoping to have posted these before Christmas, what with the heavy green and red color palette, but time and life had other plans, so you’re only just seeing now. Sorry about that. Merry late Christmas (or early, however you wanna see things).

In all seriousness, though, Lana is a real beauty and it’s always a great experience taking photos with her. One or two of the photos from our outing turned out to be some of my all-time favorites for 2011 (this and this and this are her too). I can’t wait until the next time!

    I really am impressed with the work you are doing. Great shots! I am a huge fan of Jeremy Cowart’s, and he said you were very talented. After checking out your work, I would definitely agree! Keep up the great work :)

    Great set of images. Love how you can work any environmnet. Just breezed through your interview on Ben Trovato and laughed my ass off at this:
    ” I started working as a graphic designer near Portland, where I developed a hatred for stock photography”
    I’m righ there with you.
