This blog is dedicated to four special people:

Brian Harrison is a professional musician, songwriter, music teacher, and folk Rock, Blues musician and my personal friend who resides in Happy Valley Oregon.  Brian has given me a fantastic opportunity to photograph a private benefit concert in Boring Oregon.  The event is being held in a private helicopter hanger belonging to a USMC Ret. Colonel.  I want to thank you sir for your service, your hospitality and for letting me photograph this event and for all who served and gave it their all.  To Brian’s wife, thank you for supporting Brian’s dream. 

Amanda Brooks is a successful construction project manager from Molalla Oregon who has stepped into a man’s world with both feet and proven herself through the quality of her work and her fair practices that have gained the respect of her peers. Thank you to you and your family for trusting and allowing a stranger/photographer to photograph your horses and hybrid dogs.       

Krystal Lechner of Woodinville Washington is the business owner of Smashing Divas Beauty Artistry.  I have only known Krystal for a short time, but she is a wealth of fashion knowledge and has worked with some of the best designers in the industry.   I was able to collaborate with her on a few projects where she put her extraordinary stylist skills to work; it was a pleasure to observe.  I have tapped into Krystal’s knowledge base and in return not only do I learn something new, I get leads on possible clients which help to grow my business.  Krystal, I thank you for all your support. 

Agnieszka Szczurowska is a skilled photographer who assisted on my last shoot, thank you Agnieszka and yes people I did spell her name correctly, geez! 

Did You Know??
The song by AD/DC “Hells Bells” was recorded a few months after lead singer Bon Scott drank himself to death on February 19, 1980 at the age of 33 years old in a London club called the Music Machine? The album is a tribute to Scottish born Australian rock musician the late Bon Scott.  When the song became a hit, AC/DC added a 2-ton bell to their stage show. Fact about Bon Scott’s hat, the hat he wore onstage was his brother's hat and his idea, to help keep the sweat out of his eyes. His brother loaned it to him and never got it back. Funny how such a simple thing would turn into branding image for Bonn Scott.
