andrew villenueve, aka ‘the kid’

This is Andrew Villenueve, a 24 year college kid who lives at home with his parents. He also happens to be an influential political activist and the founder of The Northwest Progressive Institute.

In February of 2006, the King County Democrats honored him with their Rising Star of the Year award to recognize his accomplishments and they also honored him blogger of the year.

I made these portraits for this month’s issue of Seattle Metropolitan. Thanks André and Andrew.

I recently traveled down to Santa Cruz to photograph author Vanessa Diffenbaugh and her family for this month’s issue of Glamour. Her debut novel, The Language of Flowers, is garnering rave reviews.  Vanessa can tell you all about it here.







On my way back from a shoot,  I ran into this downhill party.  The moral of the story, wear a helmet.
