Last year I had the pleasure of working on a feature story for Cooking Light Magazine about food in my beloved hometown, Portland, Oregon. I met many people over the course of the assignment and was once again amazed by the passion these individuals demonstrated in regards to the sustainability of food production. I met people who were (are!) sincerely working to make life on this planet better – from Camas Davis‘ Portland Meat Collective to Friday and Kerry Purington who tend to ultra-local, food-producing urban garden plots. I finally made it to Voodoo Doughnuts Too, where you can easily satisfy your sweet tooth with one of their zany doughnuts. One of many impressive discoveries on this assignment was meeting up with the Portland Fruit Tree project, which harvests fruit from trees around the city that produce too much fruit for the owners to handle. The fruit is harvested, sorted and divided between the volunteer pickers and a certain amount is distributed to the Portland Food Bank. It’s a glowing, positive article and I highly recommend picking up the magazine which is widely available. The May 2011 issue is on newsstands now and has much more information (and pictures) than the online version, which you can find here.

Tomorrow, April 20th, marks the beginning of another adventure in the Aloha State where Susan Seubert will be based for four weeks. With headquarters on Ka’anapali Beach, she’ll certainly be spending many mornings surfing and enjoying the tail end of the Humpback whale season, the large cetaceans that migrate to this area every year from Alaska. Otherwise, she will be available for assignments. Hawaiian Air just announced new non-stop service to Tokyo and Osaka in Japan and Incheon and Busan in South Korea. For portfolios, stock requests or assignments, feel free to contact Susan directly at susan (at) sseubert (dot) com or by phone at +1-503-819-6692. A hui ho!

During the month of April 2011, many galleries around Portland will be showing photography in tandem with events surrounding the Photolucida portfolio reviews. On Saturday, April 16th, photographer Ron Van Dongen and I will be giving brief lectures about our work at the Froelick Gallery. The gallery is located at 714 NW Davis St. and the event will start at 11am. It is free and open to the public. I will be talking about my most recent body of work entitled, “r e s t r a i n t,” a series of 4×5″ wet-plate collodion ambrotypes that are a meditation on the word restraint. If you can’t make it to the talk, you can see the work and read my artist statement at seubertfineart.com, my fine art web site. I look forward to seeing you at the gallery!

Although this announcement is a bit behind schedule, I am pleased to show that I was featured in Photography Monthly’s 2011 Technique guide. The magazine is based in London and published in the UK. Although the story was not published online, I received a wonderful double page spread featuring my work as well as a lovely interview which discusses the techniques I use as a professional travel photographer. Cheers!
