I did not grow up in a political home.
That does not mean that my republican father and democratic great aunt didn't spend every Sunday brunch debating over national issues they had no control over... We just didn't discuss important views and issues when we returned home.
I've had the great opportunity, recently, to photograph many of Spokane's brightest and honest poleticians. From many of our state representatives, to our very own former congressman, George Nethercutt. Their benefit dinners and campaign events are always high energy, and full of constructive Q and As.
Spokane's Mayor, David Condon is one of my favorite human beings I've shaken hands with. His heart is bigger than this city's boarders, and his smile makes even the most untrusting citizen melt.
I may not be entirely sure where I stand on many issues, but I know that I have had the best time producing beautiful images for these wonderful people.
