Yappem Headshots – On-location

Finding some time to get to catch up on the blogging again, but the timing works out well because Yappem just launched at SXSW 2013 and that’s just who I worked with recently for some head shots. Ever wanted a friend to try a new restaurant so bad that would are willing to buy …

Something with a Little Cheese

Well, it’s been a few months since I have posted anything that I have felt is worthy of sharing. I’ve always liked to take quality over quantity method, so I’ll get right to it. Over the last couple months I have building a new portfolio of fashion-inspired photographs to fill …

What’s your driving force?

What is it about photography that keeps you shooting? Is it the mini relationships you build with your clients and customers? Is it all the new gear that is continuously talked about with fellow photogs? The reading about newly reviewed gear in the photo magazines and on web sites? Or …

2013 Senior Picture Rep Nadine – Mishicot High School

Wanted to highlight Nadine’s Senior Rep session that was shot at a location that I have never been to, Devils River Campground. Just think, I’ve lived 28 years without knowing of this gem of a location! Such beautiful land formations along with some old settler’s homesteads and barns. Couldn’t have …

The Go-to Guy, Dad

Hey Dad, I guess for the most part life itself hasn’t changed that much since you have been gone. The grass still needs to be cut, the garbage taken to the curb every week, everyone goes to work each day it seems that the daily routines haven’t changed. But what has changed is the emotions and feelings of those who know and love you. I cannot express the amount of joy and love that you brought into many people’s lives as they themselves stumbled through life’s unexpected joys, griefs and labor as the days came and went. You were the …

Why Every Session Is Important.

I have had more and more first-hand personal experiences this past year than ever that verify a very my strong personal belief that I have about photography. A belief that goes deeper than just an exposure, a belief that we have all experienced, and a belief that we all have contributed to; Photography is a very important aspect in each of our lives historically, emotionally, and esthetically. Viewing, discussing, and creating images can be a passage to self-discovery that enhances self-esteem. Studying photography can be the conduit to a further understanding of various cultures and different ways of seeing, believing, and …
