Scholarship Basketball Tournament Photography: Elks Hoop Shoot

A couple months back, I had the enjoyable opportunity to do some event photography in Vancouver, Washington at Clark College. The occasion was the regional competition for the Elks Hoop Shoot, an annual nationwide tournament put on by the Elks Foundation.

The winners of the tournament advance to the national level, competing for scholarships. The photography of this event at Clark College was for purposes of marketing and promotion of the event in the future, so my client wanted me to capture a variety of images of the youth, the volunteers, and the audience.

Photographing an event in my hometown of Vancouver was fun, and it was great to see all the enthusiasm in the competitors.

Comcast Cares Day: Beaverton / Vancouver Event Photography

This spring I once again had the opportunity to photograph local events as part of Comcast Cares Day, an annual employee service day where Comcast employees perform a variety of community service projects. This year I was assigned to photograph three locations (two in Beaverton, Oregon and one in Vancouver, Washington) and I spent the morning creating a variety of images that showcased the employees and their work.

Here’s a sampling of some of the images.

Business Listings and Directories

You strike me as the type that’s probably a savvy local business owner. You have your local business listed in online directories, right? You likely have a business listing in Google Places and I bet you’ve added your physical business to Yelp, haven’t you?

Since you’re making the effort to put your name out where modern folks can find you, I hope you’re including photos with your listings… they’ll make your business listing a lot more eye-catching than one without any images.

And since you’re just that cool, surely you have some kick-ass photos on there and not just a few snapshots, right?

Oh. If that last sentence caused you to hesitate a bit, drop me an email or give me a call and let’s upgrade your business image on the web.
