It’s been a busy summer full of family excursions mixed with a full compliment of work related activity. Here’s a snapshot of what I got up to shooting The River Bride, travelling around Oregon and Washington chasing family time and answering the call of the ocean:
I also logged a multitude of hours at Transport busting out some top secret Nike projects for their Emerging Markets group that while challenging and rewarding to work on aren’t designed for just anyone to see. On the flip side of that coin, I lit, shot and edited this highly informative set of videos for Widmer Bros. Brewing, starring the namesake brothers answering user submitted questions about all things beer.
As a proud Portlander and unabashed beer enthusiast it was great to hear some of Oregon brewing’s founding fathers talk about their 30 years in the business. One of the things I found most interesting that didn’t get included in the responses above was that Kurt and Rob operate on a we’re-all-in-this-together attitude that finds Widmer opening their state-of-the-art laboratory to other local brewers free of charge. It’s a unified quality control measure that helps keep Portland entrenched as a veritable Beervana and that’s good for everyone involved. Salut to 30 more years, fellas!
