Some Portraiture I did for Mad Andersons Trio Website and CD

Mad Andersons Trio Website

Catherine and Nolan Anderson contacted me last Fall to shoot some portraits for their CD to be released in 2013 and their new website. Catherine is also an accomplished piano instructor and another portrait from the shoot was used on her website.

Here’s a preview of the forthcoming CD cover.

Camp Muir Hike, Mt Rainier National Park

Posted in photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2012 by Tim McGuire Images

On July 18th, 2012 two friends and I did a day hike to Camp Muir, the main south side base camp on Mt Rainier. Coming from Seattle that means you’re going from sea level to 10,000 feet in a few hours. It’s a challenging day hike starting at Paradise Lodge (5000 feet) and hiking 10 miles round trip and up 5000 feet of elevation… and then down 5000 feet. Overall it was a great day which made for some nice photos and a great workout. Enjoy!

Thanks to my fellow hikers, Jenna Forty and Will Kamin for putting up with all my picture taking. It was the only way for me to slow them down so I could keep up.

HUMAN NATURE Connections – Whitewater River Kayaking with Christie and Drew

Posted in photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2011 by Tim McGuire Images

For the fourth entry in my HUMAN NATURE Connections Project I’d like to introduce Christie Glissmeyer and Drew Eastman, both are whitewater river kayakers and they are a newly engaged couple who live in Hood River, Oregon.  When Christie first heard about my project through her talent agent at Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited she wrote the following to me to describe how she connects with nature.

“I’m a kayaker, and I connect with the the natural environment through water. I ride the river currents, cascading through deep mossy gorges and dense forests of the Pacific Northwest. I’m immersed in thundering waves, navigating through the chaos of rapids and plunging over falls. My perfect moment is pushing away from shore and floating towards the horizon line of a waterfall. The world falls away it’s just me and the river, tumbling through the mist into a crystal clear pool below. For an instant it’s dark, cold, and eerily calm. Then I resurface, gasp for a breath of air and look up to see the powerful wall of water towering above me.”

We met to make some photographs at the top of Snoqualmie Pass at a stretch of the South fork of the Snoqualmie river they call “Fall in the Wall”.  It is a 1/4 to 1/2 mile stretch of river that is only run-able when the mountain runoff is high enough, usually late Winter and Spring.  This year, with all the snow pack it was still good to go in mid July. These are some of the photos we made on two runs down the river. I was trying to capture the feeling Christie described in her initial note to me. There will be a short video including some GoPro video footage shot from the front of Christie’s kayak coming soon!

I posted a little series of pics to Flickr recently and they are getting a surprising amount of traffic. The pictures are a short series I took while out at Long Beach, Washington while checking out the International Kite Flying Contest / Festival.  This old guy had at least one kite attached to his belt and another one or two in his hands.  He was totally into what he was doing.
