seattle seahawks : showing their support

About a year ago, we had the privilege of photographing the celebrities at the first American We Day in Seattle. The Seattle Seahawks were there and we photographed a few of them wearing Artisans jewellery which is sold to support Me to We. In these photographs, they are wearing water rafikis which cost $10 and the sale of each one provides water for one person for a year.RAS_130327_3178

dance photography : flour

Jason recently decided to challenge himself with his dance photography so arranged a “creative” which is just a session for the fun of it. He does them regularly to create images for his portfolio, competition or to try new techniques. This one involved dancer Lacey Cebula throwing flour while she jumped. She was great to work with and the images turned out phenomenal. There are more being posted to our Facebook album of dance photographs.

Thank you to Duane Bradley for assisting and doing the behind the scenes photography and video and to Nicci of The Realm Dance Studio for letting Jason get creative and messy in her space.
