Recently I spent the better part of a day getting to know local Olympia photographer Daniel Thompson, the owner of Buttondown Photography. We knew each other through a mutual friend so we had a coffee and did a photoshoot together. This was lots of fun for me, since I'm rarely on the other side of the camera; you can see these shots on his blog. After that, we spent the day in my office tweaking on our laptops, nerding out on all things photography and technology. Daniel is a really cool dude with a great take on life. Be sure to check out his girlfriend's new website as well; she is a talented maker of things. Olympia is a place full of really cool people - just take some time out of your busy schedule to meet someone new!
