EVO Portland

leitz-evo-portland3 A few weeks ago I headed South on the train to photograph EVO's new Portland OR store. Another great collaboration with Heliotrope Architects, the new Portland EVO store is a very cool space.

And who happened to walk in to the new store during the shoot? None other than snowboarding legend Jussi Oksanen - one of my early-adulthood heroes. I was so star struck I had to introduce myself and get a picture. Recently retired from pro snowboarding, Jussi stopped by the store to promote his water bottle company Mizu.
