  • 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…

    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…

  • 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.

  • Dripping Springs Gardens – Huntsville, Arkansas – Photographer

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • Arkansas Razorback Football Stadium – Exterior photo

    I’ve been holding onto this image for a little while now, and I’m finally digging it out and putting it to good use. I’m donating an 8″x 15″ metal print of this photo of Razorback Stadium to a Facebook auction. Beginning Sept. 1st, my sister is having an auction to help raise money to offset…

  • 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…

  • For Bloomberg News – Kiva Systems Robots – Acumen Brands

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

  • 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.
