Ireland in Fall

Sláinte! My wife and I have been fascinated by Ireland for years. Luckily her ancestors are from Ireland, which makes me an honorary Irishman… I think. We were married this last August and decided to go to Ireland for our honeymoon. The trip wasn’t intended to be a photo adventure, […]

Fotodiox FD-EOS Adapter Test

A long, long time ago a fourteen year old version of myself found my dad’s old Canon AE-1. It sat in a box, taped up, with old cords and other junk. It was gathering dust, which made no sense to teenage me because, well, it looked so damn cool. I […]

A Fire in Marion

After spending the day in a tornado disaster zone, I was headed to my hotel in Marion, Illinois. As I drove down the interstate at sunset I could see a thick cloud of smoke streaming up from the historic part of town. I had a little extra energy, and I […]

First Landing State Park

  I was sitting at Patient First, my primary care physician, with a gigantic bug bite. A bright, red, bulls-eye looking bump was now covering about half of my calf. The culprit? The doctor couldn’t say for sure, but we both agreed it looked like the Amblyomma americanum – otherwise known […]

Akeson Family Photos

These photos come with a bit of a delay. I shot these back in September for the Akeson family. They wanted some photos to use for a big wall collage, so we went to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens and clicked away. Even though it was hot and humid, we had […]

Dead Confederates in Stone and Brick

I decided to go on a little adventure. I found myself at the Oakland Historic Cemetery at sunset. It was built in 1850 overlooking then downtown Atlanta, Georgia. With graves dating back to the early 1800’s, many of them Confederate soldiers, the graveyard seemed too unique to pass by unexplored. The […]

I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan and Collin recently for a headshot shoot. Morgan and Collin are local commercial and film actors who needed updated photos to hand out while auditioning. They were easy to work with, and were quite comfortable in front of the camera. We shot on […]

Shawn & Headshots

I helped a friend shoot some headshots about a month ago. He only had fifteen minutes, so we shot as much as we could, and then called it quits. We ended up with a few good shots. He needed some photos for his website, not necessarily headshots, but these are […]

Livermore, California

A long-form features shoot found me in San Francisco and its outlying suburbs. These are a few photos I snapped of a mom/daughter duo we interviewed in their garden. They even gave us peaches from their peach tree, and they were delicious.

John Adams

I found some old photos from a commercial shoot back around the 4th of July. We shot an actor portraying John Adams as he wrote letters to his wife Abigail. The shoot was mainly video focused, but here are a few stills! We used an old corner office, cleared out […]

Business cards just came in the mail. So exciting that I thought I’d share these photos. Just pretend to be enthusiastic… By the way, I’ve been advertising around. A three hour engagement photo shoot, 40 final images, 10 of those professionally touched up by yours truly, all for $100. That’s […]

Troy & Kelsey

I’ll be honest with you… This was my first ever engagement photo shoot. Troy and Kelsey were patient, looked great, and had a lot of fun. We shot in a few locations around Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. I’ve been shooting news and commercial photojournalism for so long now that […]

A Revamping

The whole site got revamped. In the old days I used to register and host my website through a third party company.  Well, I like the layout and feel of a blog revamped as a freelance website much better. So I did it. Explore the site, look at some of […]
