  • What do Advertising, Sports, Head Shots and Editorial Photoshoots have in common? … Me …

    I started off the new year in a poultry house working on an ad campaign with Tyson Foods and their advertising agency. We had three specific shots in mind, and it all sounded simple… while baby chicks are super cute to watch run around and hold, they don’t make for the most cooperative subjects. There…

  • editorial photographer

    Recap of March and April of 2017. Yes, I’m this far behind on talking about my photography…

    I took these photographs over a year ago, and I’m just now getting around to posting about them… geeze, I’m a slacker. Not really, I’ve just been busy creating new photos and having fun in life. My blog has definitely become secondary, and I’m working to get it updated so that my posts will all…

  • Arkansas Editorial Photographer

    Portraits, Interiors and a Ride Down the River — Recap of the first couple months of 2017.

    It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog, so here goes for… I’m going to break 2017 into several posts. The year started out a little nerve-racking when my biggest and most steady client decided to shut down the e-commerce part of their business. I know better than to put “all my eggs in…

  • Work never stops as a freelance photographer

    It’s been a hard week; I had to put down my dog on Tuesday. She was 2 months shy of her 15th birthday, and 4 months shy of being with me for just as many years. She was the best dog a person could ever ask for, and the last year was really hard to watch her…

  • 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…

  • 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…

    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. There were a lot of phone calls, emails, photo shoots, miles traveled and friends made along the way. My regular photography clients expanded from Northwest Arkansas into Little Rock and I put a…

  • Beth Hall Photography – Arkansas Product Photographer

    So many things have been happening at Beth Hall Photography over the past few months that I’ve hardly had time to update my blog.

  • Places and Things 2014 – Arkansas Photographer

    I really enjoy end of the year recaps. It gives me a chance to really look at my past year of work and see where I improved and where I need to work harder. I get a chance to see if I accomplished personal goals and set new goals for my work. I love photography because…

  • 2014 portraits – Arkansas photographer

    As I gathered images together to create this post, I realize just how incredible 2014 was for Beth Hall Photography. Not only did I meet and exceed personal goals for my photography, I met and photographed some really amazing people along the way. Just to name a few: former Arkansas Razorback basketball coach Nolan Richardson,…

  • Business Portrait – Environmental and Head Shot – Arkansas

    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. I feel like the second set-up doesn’t take too much additional time, and it gives a little more variety for the client. There are so many…

  • Walton Arts Center – Artosphere – Arkansas Photographer

                        I spent time in early summer photographing Artosphere for the Walton Arts Center. It’s a community event that features music, visual arts, movement and events for kids and families.

  • George’s Commercial Kitchen – Julie Wait Designs – Interior photographer

      I recently worked with Julie Wait Fryauf, of Julie Wait Designs,  to photograph the commercial kitchen she designed for George’s Inc.

  • Dripping Springs Gardens – Huntsville, Arkansas – Photographer

    I was recently asked to photograph Dripping Springs Gardens for a new publication called Arkansas Food and Farm.

  • Recent Portraits – Powerful Women – Photographer

    I look forward to certain projects each year and always hope that I am asked to photograph them again, and one of them is Powerful Women for AY Magazine. I love the chance to meet each of these women and hear their stories of success, and life. Each one is nominated for a different reason,…

  • Hamlet – Studio Photographer – Arkansas

      I photographed Theatre Squared executive director Martin Miller and artistic director Robert Ford in the fall for the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal. This meeting opened up a door for working with the company on their educational shoots, promotional photos and production photo archives.

  • 21C Museum Hotel – Bentonville – Environmental Portrait Photographer

    I was asked to photograph Emmanuel Gardinier, general manager of 21C Hotel in Bentonville, Ark., for an editorial publication. Because I have photographed him before, I started to wonder what I could do differently for this photo shoot. My thought process made me think about all of the social media photos I’ve seen of the green…

  • Advertising and Promotions Photography – A & P Fayetteville, Arkansas

    For throwback Thursday, I put together some of the images from a photo shoot last year for the Fayetteville A & P Commission. I was asked to provide a variety of images, including candid, of 12 members on a white background. It was great to meet the individuals responsible for making Fayetteville such a great place to…

  • Portrait Project for NWA Metro – Arkansas Environmental Portraits

    I recently completed a portrait project for Arkansas Business Publishing Group for a new guide to Northwest Arkansas called Metro. The guide features tons of information about our area including Q&A’s with five “Notable Neighbors.” I was asked to take environmental portraits of each of the neighbors and capture them in their elements. I really…

  • 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 was pretty sad to miss the opportunity. The hospital holds a special place in my heart because I spent many hours there fulfilling my volunteer…

  • Arkansas chefs – Environmental portrait photographer

    I photographed several Northwest Arkansas chefs last month for AY Magazine and other publications. It’s always fun to take them out of their element and make them the center of attention instead of their food. I love the challenge of creating a photo in an unfamiliar space. I love the pressure of coming up with…

  • Northwest Arkansas Business Journal – Business photography

    I photograph a lot of the cover photos for the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal, and have for  many years now. It’s always a different experience with all of the businesses I encounter, and not every endeavor ends with the most creative photo. Most of the shoots involve offices or boardrooms, so I strive for a…

  • Same subject, different time and place – Portrait Photography

    If you’ve heard of the University of Arkansas College of Business, then you’ve likely heard of Carol Reeves. She is the Associate Vice-Provost for Entrepreneurship and is an amazing asset for the college. Judging from my experience, she’s probably the most photographed person on campus. Luckily her office is located in a newer building at the…

  • 2013 Walmart Shareholder Meeting – Arkansas Corporate Photographer

    In June, Walmart held it’s annual Shareholder Meeting in Fayetteville, Arkansas, with events scattered in Bentonville and Rogers.

  • Lake Fayetteville, Arkansas – Stock Photography

    I spend a lot of time at Lake Fayetteville and have for many, many years. After today’s incident, I thought it would be a great time to share some images I shot there earlier this summer. I was running along and lost in thought. I rounded a switchback and almost ran into a…. BUCK! Seriously,…

  • The scenic route through Arkansas – Stock Photographer

    I woke up Saturday morning and had the urge to drive and take photos. I decided to head to my family’s farm in Greenbrier, Arkansas, but decided to forgo the usual 2.5 hour drive on I40 and concentrate on 2-lane roads. I ended up spending 7 hours driving, shooting, hiking and hanging out with my…

  • Fayetteville Arkansas Farmer’s Market

    I love the farmer’s market here in Fayetteville, Ark. Not only is there always a photo opportunity, it seems like there’s always something new to try. This spring I became obsessed with Bok Choy and began to learn every way possible to eat it! It’s packed full of good stuff AND as a bonus, it’s…

  • Crystal Bridges Museum – Environmental Portraits

    I visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art several times in recent months to take portraits for the Powerful Men and Powerful Women special sections of AY Magazine.

  • Archives – Stock Photographer

    I’ve spent the last couple of weeks getting my archives organized. I decided to dedicate the month of July to cleaning up the last 11 months of mess. I came across this image of my nieces and nephew from last fall at the beach and I was instantly taken back to that moment. I love…

  • Feltner Brother’s Burgers & Meridienne Dessert Salon – Food Photography

    I’ve been photographing quite a bit of food lately, and it’s definitely been a challenge. I’ve been shooting on location, so there are so many factors that change each time. The lighting, plating and even the amount of space of have to work in are all things that I’ve had to work through… not to…

  • Riverfest Fireworks – Little Rock, Arkansas Photographer

    I had a fun memorial weekend photographing the Riverfest fireworks with my dad and Wesley Hitt. We decided to try shooting from Knoop Park. While it ended up not being the perfect place to shoot from because of the crowd of people, I think we all had fun. I know it was a learning experience…

  • Suzie Stephens of Nibbles in Fayetteville, Ark. – Environmental Portrait Photography

  • For the Discovery Channel – The Duggar Family – Arkansas photographer

    While waiting for Hap to get a hair cut, I thumbed through a November issue of People magazine, and came across a photo of the Duggar family that I shot back in June for the Discovery Channel. It was taken right after the birth of Josh Duggar’s second child, Michael, was born and it includes…

  • For Bloomberg News – Kiva Systems Robots – Acumen Brands

    It’s not everyday that I get a call to photograph robots.

  • 2011 Annual Wal-Mart Shareholder Meeting-Fayetteville, Arkansas

  • Northwest Arkansas Business Journal – Environmental Portraits

                       Business portraits are always a challenge for me… trying to make something nice, or fun, rather than just take a portrait in a office. It takes a little extra effort to get people to warm up, and relax, and just enjoy having their photo taken.    …

    In the past couple of months I have been busy shooting photos for the 19 different sports at the University of Arkansas.
