    Editorial Photography for At Home in Arkansas

    Last summer I shot a few places around Northwest Arkansas for an editorial feature in At Home in Arkansas. I absolutely love shooting editorial content because I feel like I can just have fun and be creative. I visited a couple of boutiques, an ice cream shop, a coffee house and a local brewery. Here…

    Photographing Interiors for the Wall Street Journal in Bentonville, Arkansas

    I was recently hired by the Wall Street Journal to do the photography to accompany an article about the luxury housing market in Bentonville, Arkansas. I ended up walking away with quite a few images from the shoot, so I’ve decided to make blog posts about each home instead of putting them all into one…

  • Product Photography: 2016 Year in Review

    I started photographing products only a few years ago, and it’s becoming something I really enjoy shooting. As a photographer, I have worked to narrow what I shoot and try not to be a generalist who shoots everything. I want the images I give my clients to be quality work, and am always learning new…

  • Food Photography: 2016 year in review.

    Every year I try to make a blog post that includes my favorite images and projects from the previous year. I would like to keep my blog more up to date, but sometimes I have trouble posting current work because I would like for my clients to use the images before I make a post. I…

  • One of the many reason I love being a freelance photographer in Arkansas.

    I love my job, every damn day. I feel very fortunate that I am always happy to go to work and that I get paid to do something I love. There are so many reasons that I enjoy being a professional photographer, but one of them is meeting people and hearing their stories. We all have…

  • Photographing Businesses and Executives in Northwest Arkansas

    Each year Arkansas Business honors the state’s top executives, small businesses and nonprofits with the annual Arkansas Business of the Year Awards. It’s become a photography project that I look forward to shooting because I get to meet new people and gain a little more knowledge of the businesses in Northwest Arkansas. This year I took environmental…

  • Corporate Interior Photographer

    Can you drop a camera and take a good photo?

    My old boss always had random sayings about photography that really didn’t make much sense, but somehow they still run through my head all these years later. I don’t remember the exact saying, but he used to talk about dropping a camera and every once in a while you would end up accidentally taking a good…

  • F8 and be there — with a little bit a luck.

    Have you ever heard the phrase “f8 and be there?” It’s attributed to being said by Weegee (Arthur Fellig) in the late 40’s, and it’s a phrase that comes through my head every time I am in one of those “is this really happening” moments. A couple of Saturday’s ago, I was driving to Eureka Springs…

  • Reflections and Celebrations on being a freelance photographer for 10 years…

    Ten years ago today I walked into the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, where I was a staff photographer, and gave my notice. As I stood next to the filing cabinets in the digital dark room, my boss looked at me and said, “You’re f*$king kidding me… this is a joke, right?” I didn’t really know where I was…

    2015- A year of changes for this Arkansas Photographer

    On this last day of the year, I thought I would make my final blog post a reflection on the changes in my photography business.

  • Lights of the Ozarks Stock Photography and a trip down memory lane…

      Throwback Thursday and a quick trip down memory lane… I spent an evening last year shooting stock photography of the Lights of the Ozarks. It was a cold, quiet evening that brought back memories of an old tradition with a group of friends. Many, many years ago, I used to run with a group on…

  • Why it’s never just a quick portrait

    Several months ago, I traveled to Dennard, Arkansas, to take portraits of Lalla Lee Ostergren for Arkansas Food and Farm. The magazine wanted to feature her holistic lifestyle and years spent as an organic gardener. It was supposed to be just a quick portrait along with some photos of her garden, but I ended up staying…

  • Capturing moments as a sports photographer

    As I began my day reading about Ryan Mallett’s release from the Houston Texans, I flashed back to a moment from a game in 2010. As sports photographers, we have a split second to capture images that tell a story. There are so many factors that affect this, and many times moments are missed or…

  • Photographing a creative mother of four in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Last month I ran into another situation where my phrase “small town Arkansas” applied. I was hired to shoot an environmental portrait of a mother and her children at her North Little Rock home for Savvy Kids Magazine. When the subject, artist Morgan Herndon, opened her front door I thought she looked very familiar. As it…

  • 2014 Sports – Arkansas Photographer

      I always refer to the shooting sports as the icing on the cake. Over the years, sports has become a smaller part of my photography, but I really have fun and it’s always a challenge. This year I really had to work on my timing, mostly because I switched from shooting Nikon (for 15 years)…

    I do quite a few portrait shoots for businesses. During my initial talks with my clients, I always like to suggest taking two types of portraits: environmental and plain background.

  • Hugos – Fayetteville, Arkansas – Food Photographer

    When I moved to Fayetteville almost 20 years ago, Hugos was the first restaurant I visited for lunch. It’s the place where the locals go that has a great assortment of food on the menu.

  • Arkansas Children’s Hospital ACHiever – corporate photographer

    Several months ago I received a phone call about shooting for Arkansas Children’s Hospital and I had to turn them down because I had been called for jury duty.

    I photographed several Northwest Arkansas chefs last month for AY Magazine and other publications.

    At the end of May, I received an inquiry email from an editor at National Geographic Traveler wondering if I would be interested in shooting an assignment for them.

    I recently photographed the season opener for the Arkansas Razorbacks football against. Louisiana-Lafayette.

I almost dreaded going to shoot the game that morning in anticipation of…

    I photograph a lot of the cover photos for the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal, and have for  many years now.

  • Work Photos – sports and editorial photographer

    Photography of track athletes at the Razorback Invitational. So i thought i would throw in this last photo of London Crawford just to show off his tattoos. To think that I’ve covered him during football season, and I had no clue he had this much ink! Here’s a shot of a few guys from C.R.…

  • Recent Photo shoots – Commercial and Sports photographer

    Dec. 3, 2009 Sarah Palin stopped by Fayetteville to sign autographs at Sam’s Club on a REALLY COLD day in Fayetteville. This was my hail-mary with my 80-200 to get a shot of the crowd. I cracked up at this woman who had a baby blanket wrapped around her head as she waited to meet…

  • Artsy stuff – personal

    Long story short, I shot these water photos with the lyrics, “Ripple in still water, When there is no pebble tossed, Nor wind to blow,” running though my mind. I was thinking about our dear friend Josh and how fitting it was that his cousin sang that song at his funeral. Marcus, Hap and I…

  • Ehud Olmert – editorial photographer

    The former prime minister of Israel Ehud Olmert visited the University of Arkansas this evening to take part in the Distinguished Lecture Series. It was the usual have the dog sniff your gear, someone go through your bag, get patted down only to have 5 minutes to shoot during the lecture. I can’t complain though,…

  • HAPpy HALLoween campin at Devil’s Den – Personal

    We started the weekend off with nothing other than Cheeze Whiz in honor of our friend, Josh. Though we had a wonderful weekend full of fun and friends, I couldn’t help but think that he should have been there with us. Life moves on, and we make great memories, though we will always have a…

  • Arkansas vs. Georgia, 41-52 – Sports Photography

    A great game for photos of passes. Other than that, it was so long ago that I can’t remembering anything else… Oh, and a couple of hard hits. Ouch! And the helmet is off! Nothing feels better than a cleat to the face… ouch! SaveSave SaveSave

  • phoHOGraphy from the game – Personal

    Ok people, i think we had a little too much fun on the sidelines last night! I’ve imagined a little conversation for this next photo… SARA (to herself): “if i don’t see it, it’s not there.” BIG RED: that sure is a big lens, i bet you can see the hair in the qb’s nose…

  • Arkansas vs. Kansas-Volleyball – Sports Photographer

    After covering the LPGA Saturday, I headed over the barnhill to cover the Ladybacks volleyball team for the University of Arkansas athletic department. Though I was a bit tired, I really enjoyed shooting the ladies and their enthusiasm, even though they lost. SaveSave

  • LPGA- Nikon D3 – Arkansas Sports Photographer

    So I broke down and bought a D3, and I’m so happy about it! I’ve been saving my pennies for the last few months trying to make the decision between a d300 and a d3. I’m so glad a d300 to shoot the Arkansas game b/c it helped me make up my mind. Woo hoo…

  • Arkansas vs. Missouri State – Sports Photographer

    Fun first game of the season in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium. I borrowed a Nikon d300 and WOW, I was amazed by the color and ambient light in the photos. While I like my d2x, it’s time for an upgrade. I can’t get over the fact that photos from a night game at…

  • Lastest Photography work – Commercial and editorial work

    The mass update… Meet Mike Woods, the human light-stand. I had a very fun time shooting Arkansas’ D.J. Williams… I’ll have to rate it as one of my most favorite photo shoots! This guy has it going on… a great personality, great tight end, singer/songwriter/pianist and played drums in the high school band. Great shoot……

  • Walmart Shareholder meeting – Editorial Photographer

    June 5- Wal-Mart held their annual shareholders meeting and the entertainers were spectacular as usual. Even though it’s long couple of days, I actually look forward to covering the event every year. It’s fun to listen to the entertainers and see some of the executives a little more relaxed. It’s also neat to learn about…

  • Hogs vs Ole Miss, Baseball – Sports Photographer

    Am I really this far behind on my blog? Hogs vs. Ole Miss—May 16—this was a very long game. The final score was 16 to 3, Ole Miss. This was pretty much my first, and only, baseball game to shoot… and I still suck at shooting baseball! SaveSave

    Anyone recognize this photo? – Sports Photography

    I shot this photo of Matt Jones during the Arkansas vs. Texas Game in 2003. Shortly after it appeared in the paper, an email circulated with a photoshopped hand giving the downed hooke-em-horns sign. I was walking through the mall a few weeks ago and found someone selling my photo… which is actually copy written…

  • Catching up – freelance photographer

    I’ve been busy lately shooting stuff for Bloomberg, and the Associated Press. Bloomberg hired me to shoot photos for a story on the fresh produce at Wal-mart and how the quality has improved over the past few months. Going in, I thought it would be a fairly easy assignment, but while I was there I…

  • Wooooooooooo, Pig Sooie! – 1994 National Champions

    The game on Sunday was a fun one for me b/c I grew up watching the ’94 team and hearing all about them from my brother. I started college at the U of A in ’95 and remember how much fun we had at the games and how loud the fans were. When Nolan was…

  • Razorback Invitational

    Let me start off by giving a BIG THANK YOU to Marc for loaning me his coat… I don’t think I would’ve made it through the evening without it. You would think by now I would know how to dress for a sporting event, but when I left the house this morning, I thought I…

  • Arkansas Razorback Basketball

    I’ve been feeling really rusty shooting lately, but here are a few images from the last couple of games. Ark 67 – Texas 61. Go Hogs! Can you believe the upset No. 7 Texas??? What a game. The crowd reminded me, and my ears, of the days of Nolan. Fun stuff! What’s up with the…

  • Wild Art

    I had fun with Hap and Scudder raking leaves the other day. Scudder is a bit neurotic when it comes to yard work, so she chased the leaves and Hap chased her. I’m thinking fall is a great time for an overactive dog and 2-year-old to burn some energy! Can anyone guess how this one…

  • Photos From Saturday

    Saturday morning I shot an open house for the Engineering Dept. at the University of Arkansas. I thought this couple was really cute! Wonder what they’re talking about! After my shoot I ran to target and came across this guy in the parking lot. The first thing that popped in my mind was someone dropped…

  • Alabama vs. Arkansas

    Well I can start blogging again, now that I’ve figured out my password. I seriously hate sharing my computer with my husband… He logged onto his blog and totally wiped out my info and replaced it with his. I ended up having to reset the whole thing. Anyway, here are some shots from the game.…

  • Nature and stuff

    Who would’ve thought Lake Fayetteville could look so pretty! I saw this guy while shooting solar splash… he was sooo tiny! Here are some shots from the birdhouse that’s attached to my sunroom. I think there are 3 baby Carolina Wren’s in it, but it’s hard to count while shooting through a tiny hole. The…

  • Annual Wal-Mart Shareholders Meeting – Corporate Photography

    Waking up at 5 a.m. has never been an easy task, but the shareholders meeting is more and more worth it every year. While I’m not really interested in the business aspects of it, I really enjoy the performers that are brought in each year. Queen Latifah was in the house as MC. I had…
