I know, I know. I’m putting off the greatest pet story of all time, all while posting my own self-serving interests instead. Truth be told, I think I’m going to need a few days to sit down and write that post just to get in the vicinity of it. And by vicinity I mean how an asteroid gets within a few hundred million miles of our solar system or some equivalent scale. I will say, however, that said pet made an appearance yesterday at the local vet for a checkup and received instant celebrity status, though no official statements to the media were made.
My own existence, however, is largely focused on Seattle’s newest and, if I may say so, most promising photographer collaboration since Lindsey Lohan and the Paparazzi Ansel Adams and Film. I’m proud to announce that I have finally worn down Richard Walker‘s defenses and he officially relented in order to form a partnership called Vecta Photo. I’ve known Rich since day one of my own career in photography, shooting alongside him at various assignments in Hawaii. As a veteran staff photographer for the Honolulu Star Bulletin, he was one of the guys who helped shape my own style in photojournalism and I could not be more excited to be affiliated with him and his incredible talent.
Oh, if that isn’t proof enough of potential greatness, we also played in a band called Motor Vehicle Accident that (indirectly) closed The Wave Waikiki.
Anyway, Vecta Photo is our formal collaboration on high-end wedding, portraiture, stock, commercial and just about any other type of photography that requires a unique approach with professional execution (hey, I should be in a PR firm.) The critical point of Vecta Photo is that Rich and I have worked together on numerous projects, we know and understand each other’s approach to shooting, and we realize how much more we can accomplish than a single photographer or photographer/assistant team.
So we were jaunting around Alki, soaking in the tremendously-awesome weather and padding up our stock library (which is searchable, by the way, whilst our full website is under development), whereupon I started to find my stride in getting back in touch with my weird self.
So there you have it. Being touristy without being touristy. Or something like that. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest (or – if you feel like flying us out – anywhere on Planet Earth) and looking for a solid photographic team, keep your eye on VectaPhoto.com. There’s nothing that scares us.
Except Linsey Lohan.
