Photos Of The Day: Hawthorne Bridge

Hawthorne Bridge Deck – Portland Oregon

The Hawthorne Bridge is a truss bridge with a vertical lift that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, joining Hawthorne Boulevard and Madison Street. It is the oldest vertical-lift bridge in operation in the United States and the oldest highway bridge in Portland. It is also the busiest bicycle and transit bridge in Oregon, with over 4,800 cyclists and 800 TriMet buses (carrying about 17,400 riders) daily.

Multnomah Falls

Multnomah Falls is a waterfall on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, located east of Troutdale, between Corbett and Dodson, along the Historic Columbia River Highway. The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet (165 m) and a lower falls of 69 feet (21 m), with a gradual 9 foot (3 m) drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet (189 m). Multnomah Falls is the tallest waterfall in the State of Oregon. It is credited by a sign at the site of the falls as the second tallest year-round waterfall in the United States but that claim is debated among waterfall experts.
The purpose of this campaign is to continue sharing 503tv Photography with all of our viewers, as well as to share with you the different types of moments we capture through the lens. Enjoy us daily!

503tv T-Shirt Campaign

We at 503tv decided to try out a new promotional method, one that promotes our t-shirt line as well as the photography aspect of our business. We decided on a t-shirt campaign in which we enlisted some of the lovely ladies of Oregon to do photo shoots in our shirts and use the photos as their profile pictures on Facebook.

Thus far the campaign has been a success and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the women that participated and gave their time and Facebook profiles to help build our brand.  We also have to thank Loris at Horising Up Screen Designs for providing the t-shirts. Horising up does terrific work at a reasonable price and we would certainly recommend them to our supporters. Lastly we want to thank The Skanner for doing a profile on us both on their website and in their news paper. In the article they mentioned the t-shirt campaign among other things.

We are selling the t-shirts to fund our various projects. If you’re interested in purchasing one for $10 please email us at info@503tv.com.

BLAZé Room & Board The Mixtape

BLAZ_Room_Board-front-large

Portland’s own Blazé (@ThatKidBlaze) just released his mixtape “Room and Board” and it consists of back to back bangers.  503tv first met this guy as a high school kid when Sam Thompson aka Seeznin brought him into one of our studio sessions.  At the time we were collaborating with Andre Lightsey on his Public Access tv show “My City”. We turned on a track and Blazé went in with no hesitation, even at a young age he had the poise and delivery of a veteran and the scary thing is that he’s only gotten better.

We salute the young homie and wish him continued success.  If you’re not familiar with him download the mixtape (link below) and get acquainted because when he does blow on the national scene we’d hate for you to be the last to jump on the band wagon. We’re still on the Supportland movement but at the end of the day, get behind talented artist and quality music.
