Death Defying Photography

Thanks to my friend Wayne Martin, I have this indisputable evidence of my desire to meet my client’s every desire. Wayne shot this photo of me shooting a photo of the ribbon cutting at the Port of Anacortes Seafarers’ Memorial Park re-opening. A good time was had by all. This is not a development that my bride finds comforting, but I actually love the opportunity to “get a different perspective” on assignments … especially those involving things like large ribbons and checks. Thanks, Wayne, and also Joan, for forwarding your priceless images of Steve in space. By the way, see my May 24 blog entry for video from this vantage point. Audio is lousy, due to wind and “modest” equipment, but the view of our “new” downtown beach and environs is worth the time.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
