Outtakes + Color Reference + Test Shots of the Year.

Photographing people doesn’t have to be all serious, I like to have a bit of fun when our location. Those of you that have had the portrait experience with me will know (and might find yourself pictured below) that it’s really not as bad as one thinks when getting portraits made of …

De Pere 2012 Senior – Hallie

I’ve been excited to share Hallie’s senior pictures with you for a few days and finally now have time to share them. Hallie is a senior at De Pere High school and is also the daughter of a good friend of mine that I have photographed many times over the years. It …

Sara & Matt | Married

From the first time that Sara, Matt and I sat down and discussed what they were looking for in their wedding photography I had a feeling that it was going to be one of the most fun weddings that I have covered. These two have a chemistry between them that resonates to whomever …

Green Bay 2012 High School Senior

Had a really fun session with a senior recently, it all started with an airbrush makeup application provided by Hether at The Spa Loft. After that we headed to the beautiful campus of St. Norbert College and then to the super-secret tall grassy field that I love to shoot in. …

A Solo Exhibition at St. Norbert College [recap w/ photos]

After a period of “downage” I have my blog and web site back up and running to it’s fullest. There have been a series of changes and events for me personally, mostly for the positive, that will give me lost of content to fill upcoming posts. But for now, I want to share this one big event that happened this past October 28th – November 23rd. I was asked to have a my work in a solo-exhibit at St. Norbert College’s Baer Gallery. How it all came together is quite a story, feel free to ask Donald Taylor, Fr. James …

Prints Hanging on Display at Luna Cafe

It’s that time again, I recently had some huge prints made up and have them on display at Luna Cafe in De Pere, WI. For a more clear picture, head on down to Luna to check them out. All prints are 40″ x 60″ and would love to have a new home. Let me add that transporting these things was a bit of a puzzle due to the size, but I will gladly transport them to wherever you would need them to get to. I would also like to extend a thank you to Craig Johnson and my dear Maggie …

It’s Winter….Still

Just when I started thinking to myself the other day that winter was “almost” over, we had another four inches of  snow fall. I’m getting really excited for this “winter blues” weather to break and Spring to make things green again. I’m also looking forward to hitting the trails with my bike, taking walks without having to wear as many layers that I dress like the Marshmallow Man, Touring Wisconsin’s Disk Golf Courses, Music at The Small Theater and Drinking a Cup of Coffee outside at Luna. Last weekend I got a call from a friend of mine wondering if I …

Working late these next few days

At work we are in the middle of shooting to promotional material and due to scheduling with the clients we end-up having to work into the evening hours. Far different from those shoots that many of us professionals are used to going into the weeee-morning hours of 1-2am. At the end of a hard days work it’s always humbling to walk out to my car with sunset like this. Just wanted to share the view.

Wi-Fi, Good Coffee and Outlets…

While deciding on what coffee shop to read today’s RSS feeds, a few questions came to mind that seems to make one coffee shop stand out more than others. Wi-Fi (of course), Good Coffee, and Outlets. Of course, this is subjective, and I know for a fact that my daily morning coffee pick-up only includes the “Good Coffee” part and stop at my local coffee roster, Luna Cafe. Since August 2000, Luna Coffee and its owners, Angela and Mark Patel, have been serving fresh-roasted coffee in De Pere, Wisconsin. Our cafe’, once a turn-of-the-century horse harness maker’s shop, offers a …

Stopping Power – The power of a good photograph.

I was hanging out with a great friend of mine, Dawn Patel, that is a huge Refab-clothing entrepreneur. As most things have a tendency to do with small business owners alike, conversations most always have a way of looping back around to talk about the business. Dawn mentioned that she has seen a noticeable tendency with product pictures on her online stores. You guessed it, The items that had “good” photos are the most popular ones, have the most views, and ultimately sell faster than any other items that she is selling. I have decided to talk a bit about …
