On your mark…

© Tim LaBarge 2008 Cyclocross season is still a few weeks away here in the Pacific Northwest, but judging from the look in Leo’s eyes, he’s ready to hear the race director say “Go!”. This past weekend was the first in a series of races out at Kruger’s Farm on Sauvie Island. No barriers, no […]


Harvest Time

© Tim LaBarge 2008 The raincoats came out this week for the children attending summer camp at Tryon Life Community Farm. It caused a pang of fear deep in my gut that summer just might be over. Like a few years ago when it started raining the first week of August and summer never really […]


The Syncline

© Tim LaBarge 2008 I went for a good ride recently through a crazy network of trail known as the Syncline. The story appeared in the Travel section of the Oregonian. It’s on the Washington side of the Columbia River…and it’s spectacular. My friend Chad and I were getting geared up to set out when […]


DIY, Portland

I met Julie Sabatier at an assignment for the Oregonian. Inara Verzemnieks did a nice story on the listening party she holds each month to hear her radio program “DIY, Portland” that airs on KBOO.It’s a great little show about people doing real things in their own real ways…whether it’s home birth or home brew.

Transition into real spring

© Tim LaBarge 2008 I was on my way back from an assignment in Hood River the other day when I entered, then emerged, from one of those crazy spring storms that packs rain, snow, ice and winds. And while there will always be more rain, there’s a warm and hopeful feeling in the air […]


First in line

This guy must have known what was coming… Hopworks Urban Brewery opened last week. There might have been more bikes than cars in the parking area. One more reason to love Portland. I keep meaning to post a slide show of the progression of that project. It was fun to follow. In the mean time, […]


Studio session

I had the pleasure of photographing blues man Lloyd Jones, pianist Janice Scroggins and drummer Carlton Jackson the other night at Mississippi Studios…Great little set in a cool little venue. © Tim LaBarge 2008


Nicole Atkins

This show surprised me the other night…Other than her myspace tunes, I didn’t know much about Ms. Atkins. Beautiful voice, good stories, sweet shoes and great musicians onstage. The Oregonian’s Luciana Lopez said nice things…see that here. © Tim LaBarge 2008


Robotic champs

© Tim LaBarge 2008 Leave it to high schoolers to have fun with just about anything. I went to photograph a robotics competition the other day and saw these kids having a blast… While my assignment was to focus on one individual for a client, I managed to squeeze off a few shots of the […]
