1859 Magazine: Scott Dolich

I've really, really {really} enjoyed the portrait assignments 1859 Oregon Magazine has sent my way over the last few years.  I've had the opportunity to meet and photograph some of Oregon's finest, smartest, craftiest, athletic, etc etc etc... and this assignment for the March / April issue was no different.  But also somewhat personal. 

When I left Nike to embark on this new career path full time,  I’m pretty sure everyone I worked with was taking bets on how long my "little experiment" would last.  But despite their doubts, my boss and marketing team took me to celebrate at one of Portland's original farm to table institutions, Park Kitchen.   

Fast forward seven years, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the happy irony when I was asked to photograph Scott Dolich, owner and chef of Park Kitchen and Bent Brick, in his own personal kitchen.   I spent a memorable morning documenting he and his fabulous family engaged in the task of perfecting the art of a Dutch Baby {not an easy task}, then very gladly partook in the fruits of their labor.
