One of the few and only things that disappoints me about A Song of Ice and Fire is that we never see or hear of royal portraits. It’s one of the glaring omissions from an otherwise impeccable world builder.
You’d think at some point, with all of the lords and ladies in the POV chapters, we’d stumble upon someone sitting or standing for their portrait.
Anyway that was the inspiration for me as I planned this Daenerys shoot with Alaska - The Dragon Queen commissions her royal portraits.

My @glyndewis backdrop from @westcottlighting came today (good on UPS for battling despite the weather) and my devilishly handsome son actually volunteered to model for my test shots. 
Usually there’s a bit of arm twisting, but he’s a fan of Glyn’s as well so he was all for it.
The backdrop is excellent quality, and I love the pattern and texture. Being lighter grey it allows me to use my grids to control spill on the background while still getting the exposure on the backdrop where I need it for my color grading.
Fantastic!

One of my plans for this year is to shoot a series of “mentor” portraits. Images of those who’ve had a hand in shaping me into the man I’ve become.
The first of these is Mr. Darel Maxfield.
He was my 7th grade history teacher at Salk Middle School here in Spokane (27 years ago 😭) and was easily the most influential of any teacher I had during my school years.
I never knew my birth father, so I’ve always searched for male role models, father figures. Middle school is a tough time for even the most well rounded kids, and I was far from that.
This man’s kindness and his dignified approach to students left an indelible impression on me, and I’ve begun teaching my children many of the things I learned from him.
He treated every student with respect, no matter who we were or where we came from. He always gave each kid a fair shake.
Having him over today, catching up on our lives - hearing stories of his time serving in and living in Iraq and his struggles of coming back from a major stroke he suffered in 2012, it made me respect the man all the more. Introducing him to my children was one of the great joys I’ve known in a long time.
He always told us kids that “today is tomorrow’s memory, so make it a good one.” Well, he did that for me today and to be able to honor him in my own way meant a great deal.

I was stoked when @kevinrtate contacted me for photos while @thelionking is in Spokane.
We had a very limited time due to schedules and the guy absolutely nailed both of the looks that we shot.

@thelionking is in town, and I had the pleasure of working with a couple of their talented dancers while they’re here. Kolin wore this coat like few people could and it looks fantastic.

The Canon AE-1 - if ever a camera needed no introduction...
Revolutionary when it was released in 1976, it put many of the tools of the pros within reach of the enthusiast.
Paired with the original “nifty fifty” it’s still a very capable film camera. The design of the body continues to inspire to this day - one needs look no further than Fuji cameras to see the influence.
A classic in every sense.
Captured with the @canonusa EOS R. There’s something I love about using the latest camera to photograph the old ones.

For my shoot with Wes, I wanted to make sure we captured a few portraits of him out of costume as well.
Believe it or not, this entire set was shot right in my living room. Using the @westcottlighting x-drop system, I’m able to setup a studio environment just about anywhere.
This was shot against a neutral grey backdrop with the textures and color grading added during retouch.

The Ansco No.9 folding camera. State of the art in 1906, it gave photography enthusiasts of the day an entirely new set of tools to make larger prints of landscapes, panel portraits and post cards. 
I can only imagine where this old thing has been, and what it has seen.

It’s cold and icy outside, so I’m shooting indoors for a bit. This shot is from early 2018, the first nice weather day we had to shoot.
