Outdoor sandal and shoe company, Keen Footwear recently moved their headquarters from Northern California to Portland. A few weeks ago I got a call from their ad agency saying they wanted to feature bicycles and someone from the bike community in their upcoming Spring 2007 catalog.
One thing led to another and yesterday I met with the agency downtown to shoot photos for the catalog.
The guy laying down in this photo is Chris Milliman, the photographer on the shoot. Turns out that he does a lot of work in the bike industry. Check out his website for some beautiful bicycle images.
After our first session at Tanner Springs Park in the Pearl District, we cruised up to Mississippi Street where I introduced the crew to Kim Fey, co-founder of North Portland Bikeworks. They shot some photos of me hanging out in front of the shop and talking with Kim. I’m curious what they’ll end up putting in the catalog.
It was fun to play model for the day, and I’m glad I got the chance to infiltrate their catalog with Portland bike scenes.
But really, I just did it for the free shoes.
