CrossFit Photo Shoot Turns Steamy

Last night I got to experience the workout phenomenon that is CrossFit. Bob Cook, owner of The Workout CrossFit in Vancouver, Wash., asked me to shoot a workout so he'd have images to add to his CrossFit blog. This picture, which features steam pouring off the head of workout attendee Marc Pitcher, was among my favorites. Expect to see more CrossFit postings in the coming months!

Portraits with Shoshone Artist Rochelle Nielsen

Yesterday I got to spend about an hour with Rochelle Nielsen, an artist who lives near me in Vancouver, Washington. She's a Shoshone Indian, and most of her art that I've seen is about that. In her art, Nielsen shows how she struggles to weave her heritage into her modern life. She's got a show coming up at Marylhurst University in the spring. After we shot portraits, Nielsen asked me to get some photos of her doing the Shawl Dance, or Fancy Dance. This image was among my favorites.
