Get to know your favorite spots around town straight from the source in this original web series that showcases local bars, restaurants and everything art and in between. Each episode will feature Portland locals as they experience life in your neighborhood and report back with all the good, bad and juicy details.
This is a passion project and open love letter to Portland.
Last fall, whilst sipping bourbon at one of my favorite spots around town, I had a conversation with the bartender that would set the course for the future of PDX360. I told him he would be featured on the first episode of my show, and now one year later, with limited means and the support of a talented crew, the taping of our pilot episode began at Branch Whiskey.
In order to bring the best of Portland to you we need your help to complete the first season, seven episodes and to reach our goal of $56K. As a thank you we will release the bonus episode “Stripped” – yes, it is as exciting as it sounds and you will want to see it!
Donations of $1 ore more will be matched with perks; contributions of $100 or more will be paired with prized original works from talented artists and insider behind the scenes access
Total Project Cost: ~$56,000+

Meet the Team
Julia Anderson- The Photographer
After I snapped the first photo of food, I felt “full” in away that food had never made me feel before. I have noticed in every house, conversations tend to revolve around the kitchen table whether it is over snacks, drinks or simply hanging out while someone is cooking a meal. It is the perfect social setting. It seems as though everyone can relate to food one way or another, no matter his or her culture or upbringing. My shooting process tends to mimic the way I cook in the kitchen, sort of a controlled chaos. I do my best to style and present my subject in a way that is pleasing all while letting whatever happens naturally fall into place on its own.
“From the moment we met I knew there was food chemistry and every photo thereafter tells the story.” -TerriSee Julia's food story in the updates
