This summer I shot images for local business Suterra. It was a very fun project and I’m always up for going behind the scenes to photograph the inner working of different industries. Suterra manufactures synthetic bug pheromones for commercial pest control in their facility here in Bend, Oregon.
Been waiting for months to get a chance to shoot with my friend Sheri. Was hoping to do a location shoot with her, but time and weather just didn’t work out, so we played in the studio today. Sheri is a triathlete and a pretty badass all around outdoorswoman. I was going for something very commercial/editorial. All around pretty happy with the results.
People tend to think that most of what I do is shoot food and people, but I shoot hundreds of products on a white background each year.
On Friday, Steve Tague and myself had the honor of being the main event photographers for the opening of the new Facebook Data Center in Prineville, Oregon. It was very cool to be part of such an amazing event. Sometimes one loses site with what a huge impact Facebook has had on history, communication and technology, but when your standing inside it, it all becomes quite clear. The amount of effort that was put into the sustainability of the data center was landmark and instead of keeping it all a company secret, they are publishing their new technology for other businesses to follow in their path.
