Visual stories from the Eastside and the Pacific Northwest by Chad Coleman
Portraits of EastsidersJanuary 13th, 2012 at Fri, 13th, 2012 at 11:22 am by Chad Coleman
Well 2012 is starting to roll along and I’ve had the pleasure of making portraits of some interesting people to start the year. Above, outgoing Bellevue council member Grant Degginger at the Lane Powell offices in Seattle. The portrait was assigned to accompany a Q&A piece about his tenure on the council and as mayor for the Bellevue Reporter. More photos after the jump…
The first portrait was made with natural light, something I admittedly find as a second thought when assigned a portrait. Above, an artificially lit portrait in Degginger’s office.
Holly Zhang, owner of Holly Zhang Pearl Gallery, is reflected in a mirror at her store at The Bravern in Bellevue. Zhang was born in rural China and has made her way to the Eastside and started her own business.
Edward Kim, sophomore with the Eastlake Wolves boys swim team, at Boehm Pool in Issaquah on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. Kim is eyeing a shot at the Olympic Trials.
