A few weeks back Justin "Scrappers" Morrison from The Mercury asked me to shoot the Westside Guide, which is an insert in the weekly paper that features cool stuff to do on the west side of Portland. I was pretty excited since Scrappers is super cool and shooting for the Mercury typically means its gonna be a fun project. If you have ever read it, you know that it has a quirky hipster vibe to it. The model/tour guide in these photos is Alberta Poon who was super funny and fun to work with. All three of us set out for the west side of Portland as I chauffeured Alberta and Justin in the back of my uber cool Chrysler minivan. We basically parked and walked to different iconic parts of Portland while I documented Alberta standing in front of this cities obscure crappy art and mysterious objects. The theme was WTF is this? Anyway, take a look at some pics from the shoot. Oh, and look closely at the very important businessman in the background making two very important phone calls simultaneously on his cell and banana phones. And, thank you Mr. Hummer - bluetooth earpiece guy that let us use your SUV to create magic without touching the paint.
