I have admired the work of fellow photographer Michael Murphy from London for quite some time now. Michael does great work across the board, but he has a “hoody guy” character that shows up from time to time in his work that I think is great. I was really excited to find out that he was coming to Seattle for a business trip and even though it was a short trip, we were able to get together for a couple beers and a little shooting from Jose Rival Bridge. Not only have I wanted to meet Michael for some time, I have also wanted to shoot the Seattle skyline from this bridge, so it was a win-win situation. I am really looking forward to seeing Michael’s images from the night, and I have a few more that I will be sharing soon as well.
I shot the scene from a few different places along the bridge, but right at the end of our time there, a helicopter took off and flew along I-5 to the south and I was able to not only get the light trails along the freeway, but a matching light trail in the air. It quickly became my favorite image of the night.
