Ascension . . . I swear I didn't steal this image from @reedfilms. But, full disclosure, I did flat out steal the caption. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Hey, it's been a rough week and there was just nothing in the creative well. Anyway, Tim was driving the truck that screeched to a stop on the side of the highway when we saw this cloudy smorgasbord served up in the sky over the mountain. . Tim will be selling prints at the Gresham art fair this weekend. Go check out his tent and see if you can find his version of this scene on metal! If you go see him tell him I sent you! I think I get like 30% commission on any sales I send his way. πŸ˜‚ I'm pretty sure he won't read this anyway but since it's in print it's a lock! . . . . #fromunderthefedora #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored #portlandnw #moodygrams #hoodgorge #cloudporn

Going, Going, Gone... You know that moment when the sun disappears...? Do you stop to watch? . SWIPE ⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️⬅️ . . I call this series The Church of the Setting Sun. Worship services are held nearly every evening. It's a world-wide meeting.😜 . . . . #fromunderthefedora . #cascadiaexplored #californiasun

*Insert heat-related caption here* . I'm too tired, sweaty, and hot to come up with anything... πŸ”₯😜πŸ”₯ . . . #embracethecliche #feverdreams . #fromunderthefedora #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #OMHT #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #moodygrams #earthfocus #portlandnw

Can a photo communicate sound? . When I see this I hear the buzz of summer insects, the clicking of a hot car engine just turned off, and the sudden release of pressure from a just-opened cold beverage (Coke Zero, in my case). . Can you hear photos? What does this one sound like to you? . . Hola be another hot one today! Thank goodness there's AC at work! . . #soundslikecokezeroandsummerbugs . #fromunderthefedora #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored #portlandnw #pdxavsquad #moodygrams

Sunny and upper 90's . The air tastes like heat. There's salt in every pore. I'm sure I'm sunburned even though I was in the shade most of the day... . I'm just gonna stare into this cool misty scene and imagine I'm NOT sitting crammed into a narrow, unairconditioned commuter jet. .

Double-Double Animal Style . Fun fact: I drove to eastern Washington, took this photo, drove back, edited it, and I'm on track to post it ALL while waiting in line at In-N-Out. Where did people wait in line before In-N-Out?! πŸ€” . . . #fakenews . #FromUnderTheFedora . #animalstyle . #washingtonexplored #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #freerangegluten . .

Weekend Heat . It's over 90 degrees again in Portland today and people are stewing in their own personal climates everywhere. The sleepy pace of the city is even sleepier than normal, assisted by road closures and construction EVERYWHERE. The weird and pungent aromas of the city are even weirder and, uh, pungent-er... πŸ€” Natural, chemical-free deodorant wearers are even beginning to believe for themselves that the stuff doesn't really work.... πŸ˜‚ . So of course I'm flying somewhere even hotter for the weekend on a killer photography excursion! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ . What are you doing this weekend? Will you escape the heat? Or embrace the burn? Will you shower more often? Or just roll with the extra ripeness... πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Or... Do you live in a place where it's winter right now? . Inquiring me wants to know!πŸ˜‰ . . . #FromUnderTheFedora . . . Hey you amazing pages out there! I know IG doesn't show my pics under ANY hashtags anymore but we used to be friends... How about you show one of my pics some love again? You know, just for old times! Thanks! Love ya!😘 πŸ™πŸΌ πŸ™πŸΌ πŸ™πŸΌ .

The hardest working cloud in two states... . I don't know if anyone in Portland noticed today... but it was πŸ”₯πŸ”₯HOTπŸ”₯πŸ”₯ out there! I, however, spent the day in an air conditioned Mercedes van, at a gorgeously cool waterfall, and traipsing through chilly miles underground in the Ape Caves with my coworkers! Not a bad way to spend a hot Thursday! . . . #fromunderthefedora #washingtonexplored #apecaves #iamdaimler #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwisbeautiful #pnwisbest

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ¦–πŸ¦–πŸ¦–πŸ¦–πŸ¦–πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ . Last Saturday I was headed into a dark theater to watch tired dinosaurs eat people in a plot-light, character-poor thriller, the latest in a sometimes-great franchise... . But I digress! The sun was 'bout ready to ignite the sky as the previews began rolling so I did what anyone would do. That's right! I ran to my car and drove to the top of the mall parking structure so I could watch the REAL show. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ˜‚πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ . Mall security once again tried to throw me out. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Good grief they're relentless about protecting empty sections of garage! This time it was a more seasoned bike cop and I was able to negotiate a ten minute armistice while I pointed a camera at the sky. πŸ”₯πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ”₯ . Then, after the flames were done transitioning from orange to red, to pink, to purple and finally to blue, I flashed my ticket stub at the cinemark guy and contentedly resumed my seat. My son, I'm sure, just assumed I was out eating concessions in the hallway AGAIN... so I wouldn't have to share... πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈOh come on! Like you've never done it!πŸ™„ . Anyway, I was back in time to see national treasure Jeff Goldblum deliver what is arguably the film's most compelling performance, while seemingly not interacting with ANY other characters, human or tyrannosaur (not bad for an afternoon's work #goodforyoujeff). . The highlight **SPOILER ALERT**** was watching an assortment of B-team E-vile Bond Villains bid for dinosaurs at Sothebys for astronomical sums of money, like.... ***Queue Dr. Evil pinky***... four MILLion dollars!!! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ . Ugh. . But that sunset was freaking amazing! Thank you Officer McHighstockings! Armistice over!

I was up at 4AM to drop a kid off for a week at scout camp. And this... is not what the sky looked like today. Today is a colorless low blanket of blah. So I went back to the March archive for this little burner of a sunrise. . I hope your grey Monday has some color in it! . . . #FromUnderTheFedora #OMHT #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored

How do you capture a totally original model...? U-nique up on her! . 😳 . Is this thing on...? . Anywho... I had the opportunity to shoot with the incredibly talented @rachaeln8 a couple of weeks ago. She created 1,000 unique poses in 1,000 consecutive frames... none of which I'd ever photographed before! Amazing! . . . . #FromUnderTheFedora #jakeegbertstudio #portrait #model #portrait #portraitphotography #portraits #moodyports #shootthepeople #portraits_ig #portrait_perfection #portraitmood #agameoftones #2instagoodportraitlove #rsa_portraits #portraitgame #portraitmood #way2ill #bleachmyfilm #instagoodmyphoto #pdxphotographer #portraitphotographer #oregonphotographer #seattlephotographer #pdxmodel #portlandmodel #postthepeople

Find those that see your strengths, that like the things that make you different from the rest, the ones that can distinguish the mountain from the haze. Spend your energy on those people and see how rewarding healthy relationships can become. . Investing in people that couldn't see or appreciate you even on the clearest of days is a recipe for frustration. So just... invest wisely. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜‰ . . Here's a little hazy sunrise scene from the middle of last week. Had an early airport drop-off to make and spent a little time watching jets take off down by the river before heading in to work. . . . . #fromunderthefedora #mthood #cascadiaexplored #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland #oregonexplored #portlandnw #pdxavsquad

When your little neighborhood legals get a little assist from the heavens above... Finally a Walmart super pack fountain show worth watching! 😜 . Yeah, I know I've shared parts of these before. But let's give them a wider view... Besides, it's not like I skipped shooting fireworks pics entirely this year! I don't have to pretend to be tired of them and claim to be ready for fall yet! πŸ˜‚ . Gimme more summer! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ . Speaking of... What are your plans this weekend? I'm a chase some sunrises I expect. But first I have a portrait shoot! . . . #FromUnderTheFedora #fireworksπŸ’₯ #portlandnw #happyvalley #OMHT

July 4, 2018 πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡ . Did you know it's a $1,000 fine to launch an aerial firework in a Happy Valley cul-de-sac? πŸ€” Well, all the folks at our block party *may* have learned that last night. #themoreyouknow . Man that barbecue tasted great though! . Oh, and who else saw as many drones in the sky as fireworks? There were at least six up at a time during Happy Valley's show last night. You can see one in at least one of these shots. I like to think that the blurry shot depicts one being knocked from the sky... πŸ˜‚ Not that I'm anti-drone, but seriously... They're everywhere. . #fromunderthefedora #portlandnw #OMHT #happyvalley #july4th #fireworks #nightshooterz
