Jackie | Greyhound

FFP had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful ten year old greyhound back in May of this year. Jackie lost a leg to cancer a couple years ago but that hasn’t held her back one bit. With the support and love of her faithful human Carrie she is healthy and cancer free! And she can still run like the wind…

Dove Lewis | Superheroes 2014

Today we get to meet some truly heroic Superheroes! These dogs are heroes because they donate blood that saves other dogs lives on a regular basis. The fine folks and crew over at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, a non-profit  animal hospital here in Portland, held an event to honor and celebrate the life giving contributions that these animals made in 2014.

The event was held at the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company in SE Portland. Their back patio was a perfect location, especially considering that the rain was a coming down most of the afternoon. The beer was flowing, the food was plentiful and the dogs were socializing and having a blast. Now let’s meet some of these wonderful people and their Superhero dogs!

Dramatic Instagram Portraits of PDX Homes | Portland Monthly Mag Feature

I relocated to Portland way back in May of 2013 practically site unseen. I had visited for a very brief two day weekend a couple months previously but that really has no way of preparing you for the type of city you are choosing to adopt as a new home. Once I landed here I was eager to get out and about and explore my new town.

As a photographer I tend to look at the world, rather than taste, touch or smell. Creating images as a way to understand my environment is completely natural for me and hence as my exploration of Portland began I often turned to the most tried and true camera I own….the one that is ALWAYS in my pocket. Yes, I started an iPhone Instagram photo project.

Dogs of Portland | Oil (pronounced Earl)

Day 15 of the Dogs of Portland blog finds us playing fetch with a pit bull mix that goes by the name of Earl, though it is spelled Oil. Southern folk it is said tend to pronounce Oil this way and the name fits it’s subject as Earl the pit bull has the demeanor of a good ole boy while being the slick color of oil.

He is a beautiful pit bull mix that loves to play fetch in the parkway that runs down the middle of N. Omaha Ave. in North Portland with his mom. He likes being able to simply run back to his house and lay down in the yard when he is plum tuckered out! And get a load of those muscles…WOAH!

Dogs of Portland | Alex

The end of week 3 of the Dogs of Portland blog took some effort to get completed today. I was out and about strolling and hunting for new dogs to meet and it took me a full hour before I even spotted a dog. This is very unprecedented for me, usually anytime I walk out the door it seems that there is a dog there, and one over there, and another one over in that yard. Luckily the guy I ran into was a very gregarious and very gorgeous Wheaten Terrier named Alex.

Two portraits of Alex the Wheaten Terrier. One is B&W and he is laying in the grass and mostly blends in. The other is color and he is turned and facing the camera

Dogs of Portland | Biggs

Today is laundry day and I have recently realized what a total rip off my apartment complexes laundry facilities are. I am spending on average $13 a week to do laundry for two people. In my opinion that is just too darn much. As a result I have been carting my laundry down to Alpine 24 Hour laundromat on Lombard St. at Vancouver. I get all my laundry done for under $10 plus it gets done much faster because it is all being washed and dried at the same time. It really is mostly enjoyable.

However, since I have begun a new vigorous workout schedule these days I find combining a 50 minute Jillian Michael’s workout followed up by two hours of washing, drying and folding laundry led me to feel a bit lethargic this afternoon. What does all this mean?

Biggs is my neighbor and a right proper model too! He posed so well for the camera and had no problem looking right into the lens. He was a real natural.
