For Amazon, I photographed the then-secret MK30 Prime Air delivery drone. The latest development in the company’s drone delivery technology was unveiled a week later at their annual Delivering the Future event at a warehouse and lab facility south of Seattle.
Thanks to Lucas for the call, my first shoot for the company!
One of the last in-class photoshoots I had for MIT before leaving Boston was photographing this small PCB design class for undergrads. It’s always so interesting and fun to take pictures of a really hands-on class.
Thanks to Barbara and Melissa for the assignment. I really miss wandering around the classrooms and labs of MIT.
For Crosscut, I spent a day at the races at the Emerald Downs horse racetrack in Auburn, Washington. The story was about how the track had received $1.1 million in pandemic aid from the federal government. I always love a freeform assignment like this, finding moments as they happen. It was such a pleasure to wander around the stands and behind the scenes in the stables.
Thanks to Genna for the call on this, my first assignment for Crosscut!
For the Los Angeles Times, I spent an afternoon photographing tamales and food trucks around the Yakima Valley (“The Palm Springs of Washington”) for a story about the musical phenoms Yahritza y Su Esencia, who are from the region. The band had recently been on tour in Mexico and said they liked the food in their hometown of Yakima, Washington, better than the food in Mexico City. The band issued an apology, but it made people curious about what the food is like in Yakima.
As it happens, I’ve been to Los Hernandez Tamales before, and let me tell you, the tamales are worth seeking out….
Thanks to Rachel and Raul for the call on this, my first assignment for the Los Angeles Times!
While in Sofia, Bulgaria last month, I had the phenomenal luck to run into a gathering of hundreds of folk dancers from around the country gathered outside the National Palace of Culture (NDK) one morning. The participants were dressed in costumes from different regions around Bulgaria and were performing at NDK that night for the International Day of Dance. They were taking some promotional group photos that morning, including some with a drone.
