Heart Camp Video

Heart Camp Video

I’ve been keeping things from this place and that’s not good. Life has been busy, work has been wonderful and the craziest time of year, Summer, is right around the corner. So I’m going to do a few updates here with current work and ongoing projects. To start, here’s a video I shot and edited […]


Recreational Vessel

Recreational Vessel

  Summer hangs there like a basket, waiting to be loaded full of memories and feelings. We paddled the Columbia River Slough, the Willamette and the Siltcoos Rivers and we talked about time and birds and life. We explored the hills and rivers near the Middle Fork of the John Day and fell in love with a meadow. […]


Soaring Above the Oregon Coast

Soaring Above the Oregon Coast

  Hovering in a tiny helicopter above a colony of seagulls, suspended in the salty breeze above the Siuslaw River, I realized I was in a dream. I’d always wanted to be high in the air, looking down on members of my favorite taxonomical rank: aves. I see birds at the feeder in the yard and flitting between trees […]


The Source of Hoppiness

The Source of Hoppiness

Hopworks asked me to join the crew at the The Oregon Hophouse recently as they harvested hops. You can read my report and see more images at the Hopworks site here.


Spring Break Run

Spring Break Run

A few weeks ago during the boys’ Spring Break, after days of snowy Oregon activity, I finally had the chance to get out for a run and found my new favorite place: the Salmon River Trail which hugs and cradles and sleeps along a spectacularly wild river. all content © Tim LaBarge 2014


Mount Hood: Trees, à la mode

Mount Hood: Trees, à la mode

Just before Thanksgiving, 1859 Magazine asked me to head up to Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood to make some pictures for the January/February issue. It was a thrill to explore the lodge and the side of the mountain for a few days as snow fell and skiers rejoiced. After dinner, editor Kevin Max and I ventured out […]


Timberline Lodge in 1859 Magazine

Timberline Lodge in 1859 Magazine

It was raining in Portland. No surprise there. I wasn’t sure, however, what was happening up on Mount Hood where I was heading for a wintery story. I’d heard snow and I’d heard rain. Thankfully the driving drops turned to graceful flurries below Government Camp and the accumulation got deeper and deeper as I powered […]


Million bottle milestone

Million bottle milestone

Somewhere in the Northwest, temporarily tucked in a little black and yellow box with eleven of its buddies, is Hopworks bottle number one million which slid off the tiny bottling line late last week. I stopped by the brewery yesterday to shoot the new-and-improved 22-ounce Abominable Winter Ale bottle as it came off that same […]


Dayshoot 30 Exhibit at PDX

Dayshoot 30 Exhibit at PDX

On July 15th, nearly two hundred photographers fanned out across Oregon to make pictures of this incredible state as part of the Dayshoot +30 photography project. The intention was to create a ‘visual time capsule’ for the Oregon Historical Society much as photographers did on July 15, 1983. I raced around a little bit and explored […]


Post Pickathon 2013

Post Pickathon 2013

The writer Pete Brook posed a question last year at Pickathon for a Wired.com story: What makes a good music photograph? I’m quoted in the story, and yet, a year later and another Pickathon in the books, I still don’t know the answer. But last weekend, as I scurried around and split my time making pictures, managing […]


T-Model Ford

T-Model Ford

My boys call each other Chicken Head sometimes when they’re arguing. I don’t really know if it’s an insult or not, so I let it slide. It could be worse. Their choice of words always reminds me of seeing blues man T-Model Ford work the crowd into a trance as he howled an extended version […]


Traveling the Backroads of Oregon

Traveling the Backroads of Oregon

It’s one of those places where you announce, though quietly so as to not disturb the silence: I could live here. That rarely happens to me these days. But as I drove backroads chasing motorcycle riders across the northeast corner of Oregon, it did cross my lips. The peace, the beauty, the elk, the rivers, […]


Mount Lemmon

Mount Lemmon

Leo and I were off exploring last week when it snowed in Tucson. We wandered through the university campus, dodging stunned and amazed phone-wielding students as they communicated to the world that white flakes the size of raffle tickets were falling from the sky. We passed the morning looking at Native American baskets, the W. […]


Silcox Hut – Mount Hood

Silcox Hut - Mount Hood

That’s not snow falling out of the January sky. Those are stars. Everywhere I looked, there were stars. Last Sunday night tucked in a little lodge up on Mount Hood, we celebrated a friend’s birthday. At 7,000 feet, we enjoyed meals, drinks and a fire. And while Silcox Hut itself is charming in its rustic, […]


Seasonally Defective

Seasonally Defective

I checked the temperature on my phone when I finished my run: 90 degrees. Strange. It was 33 degrees when I started. At one point during the run up Council Crest, the highest point in Portland at 1,071 feet , I did catch myself daydreaming about Summer. But it was certainly not 90 degrees on […]


Cyclocross in 1859 Magazine

Cyclocross in 1859 Magazine

I usually photograph many cyclocross races throughout the fall and early winter. This year, however, I only went to two in search of images. The good people at 1859 Magazine asked me to wander the course in search of racers and fans for a spread in the January/February issue. I couldn’t resist going to Bend […]


Snapshots from the trail

Snapshots from the trail

I still carry my little Canon camera each time I run, I’ve simply neglected to post images here. This little camera has brought me more joy than I predicted. I am usually excited to head out for run on some trail or another, but coming home with an image or two lets me relive it […]


PDXCROSS – On pause

PDXCROSS - On pause

Each Monday, we’ve gotten several inquiries: Where are the pictures? It’s true, we have not updated the site with a gallery of images from the weekend’s cyclocross race as we have done the past four seasons. PDXCROSS is on hold, you might say. A few of the contributors moved away last year, a few are […]


Good Morning

Good Morning

This dog came running up the hill barking at me, shattering the quiet dawn as I shuffled past grape vines loaded with fruit. Light was pooling in the east behind Mount Jefferson and Mount Hood, the sky was clear and deep blue and black, and I was suddenly trying to find a spot, any spot, […]


Kara Goucher: Olympic effort

Kara Goucher: Olympic effort

Kara Goucher, training in Portland After photographing an athlete, a musician, a chef or anyone doing anything, really, I simply want to see them succeed. I love running and admire what long distance runners go through. So I could barely contain my excitement when I told my wife I was going to go spend the […]


Pickathon 2012 – Now it begins

Pickathon 2012 - Now it begins

I’ve been watching and photographing the build up to Pickathon for the past two weeks, but it really only hit me last night that it’s about to happen. This amazing collaboration of talent will explode into action tomorrow. And though I’ve been saying “I can’t wait” for months, it’s only now that I really mean […]


Hopworks in a Can

Hopworks in a Can

Hopworks Urban Brewery Well I think it finally happened today. The sun came out. The temperature soared to 77 degrees. It felt like summer. A four pack of these 16-ouncers from Hopworks will seem all the more welcome. You’ll be able to stop by the store and grab a four pack of these brews – […]


One Small Part of One Square Mile

One Small Part of One Square Mile

This past Saturday, about 50 photographers fanned out across one square mile of downtown Portland as part of an entertaining ASMP project. The result is a collection of images that will be displayed somewhere down the line. My little quadrant was a few blocks in Southeast. I wandered, met a few folks, made some pictures. […]


Puppyville

Puppyville

This puppy thing. I thought it might be easier this time after experiencing the tiny years with a couple of boys. After all, you can put a puppy in a crate and walk away. They eat and drink when you put the bowl down. No diapers. Some mess. But no diapers. These critters can learn […]
