Photographed a light saber armed Jedi have I, and the Force was strong in this one….

Jedi master Shaye Whitmer visited my SODO studio for a ParentMap magazine article shoot.  It was difficult to capture the glow from the sabers but, like all Jedi, Shaye was very patient.  And get this – he makes these amazing sabers and uniforms from scratch.

Shaye teaches science and art at Shoreline’s Evergreen School and holds several great summer Jedi camps where kids build light sabers (can I go?).

May the Force be with you!
