  • 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…

  • Black and White Studio Portraits – Arkansas Editorial Photographer

    In May, I was asked by AY Magazine to photograph 3 Northwest Arkansas individuals for their Powerful Men series.

  • 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)…

  • 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…

                        I spent time in early summer photographing Artosphere for the Walton Arts Center.

It’s really a neat experience, and it’s just one more thing that makes living in Northwest Arkansas…

  • Lobster boats in Maine – Stock Photography

    I was looking through old images this morning and came across these that I shot while on vacation in Maine.

    There’s been a bit of growth in craft breweries here in Northwest Arkansas, and it’s been fun to sample all of the new beer. I met Ben Mills, owner of Fossil Cove Brewing Company when I was asked to photograph him for an article on the growth and current beer laws. The brewery is two rooms:…

  • Portrait Bret Bielema – Arkansas Football

    In May, I photographed Arkansas Razorback head football coach Bret Bielema for AY Magazine’s powerful men.

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

  • National Geographic Traveler – Tulsa, Oklahoma – Editorial Photographer

    I spent a couple of days in the fall shooting a Best of the World feature for National Geographic Traveler in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was asked to focus on The Brady District, and was given a list of places that were going to be mentioned in the article including the beautiful Mayo Hotel. I really enjoy…

  • 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.

  • 2013 Sports Photography Recap

      At the end of each year, I like to go through all of my images from that year and evaluate my work. My hope is that I can look at the year and see where I’ve grown, and where I need to improve. This year I started by going through my collection of sports…

  • Cafe Ru Orleans – Arkansas food photographer

      A couple of months ago I photographed Eggs Pontchartrain at Cafe Rue Orelans in Fayetteville for a magazine editorial on brunch in Northwest Arkansas.

  • 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.

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…

  • New York Times photo shoot archive – Arkansas Editorial Photographer

    For throwback Thursday, and Thanksgiving, I thought it would be appropriate to post a photo from a shoot for the New York Times a couple of years ago. My assignment was to shoot turkeys for a possible cover on Thanksgiving day, though I didn’t quite have a clear idea of the story. I spent two…

  • Vista House overlooking the Columbia River Gorge – Travel photographer

    I took a trip to the West coast over the summer and I’m slowly editing through the images and adding them to my collection of stock photography.   One of the places we visited one morning was Vista House that overlooks the Columbia River Gorge. The view was amazing, and we decided to head out on…

  • Buffalo River, Boxley Valley area – Arkansas – Travel photographer

    A couple of weeks ago I headed to the Buffalo River area to photograph fall color with a friend. Over the past couple of years I have really tried to take a little time to get out and take photos just for fun. This gives me time to experiment, keep things fresh and add to…

  • Colorful row of Adirondack chairs on the beach – Stock Photography

    A few years ago we traveled to Fort Morgan, Alabama, for a family vacation. As I walked out to the beach, I was happy to find this colorful row of adirondack chairs just past our back porch. This has been one of my more popular images so I thought it would be great for this…

  • Lobster boats in Maine – Travel Photography

    “f/8 and be there.” ~ Arthur “Weegee” Fellig A couple of years ago I traveled to Harrington, Maine, where I spent several early mornings photographing the docks and lobster boats. On this particular morning, the sun stayed hidden behind the clouds. It came out for about 30 seconds and I was able to capture this image.…

  • Astoria Column in Oregon – Travel Photography

      Vacation this summer took me out of the heat of the South and into the beautiful weather of the West Coast. During our travels through Washington and Oregon, we took our usual scenic route. As a photographer, my traveling is rarely about the destination and more about what I find along the way. We…

  • Sports Illustrated BCS Bowl Guide 2012 – Sports Photographer

    It seems like I photograph so many things that I can’t talk about for months, so I’ve decided to jump on the Throwback Thursday trend. Hopefully this will be a fun way to display my work from the past, whether it’s recent or from many years ago. Check back because I plan to dig through…

  • 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…

Luckily her office is located in a newer building at the…

  • Beaver Lake House – Interior Photography

    Over the summer, I photographed a house on Beaver Lake for AY Magazine. Prior to the shoot, we spoke with the owners and found out that one of their favorite things to do was to get up early, sit on the porch and watch the sun rise. So naturally, we decided that we should arrive…

  • White Rock Mountain – Arkansas Photographer

      I have traveled to White Rock Mountain several times in recent weeks to enjoy the fall season. It is one of the most peaceful places I think I’ve ever visited and I always love my time on the mountain. While it’s a bit of a drive on a gravel road, the fall colors made…

  • 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,…

    “Integrity goes a Long way.” If you’re an Arkansas fan, you’ve heard or read this phase numerous times since the Petrino incident in April.

  • 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. The process is pretty simple. 12 men and 12 women are nominated by their peers under this definition… Powerful: having influence, making a difference for and serving others.…

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • Arkansas Razorback Coach Bobby Petrino – Motorcycle Accident

      Last week I photographed the press conference following Petrino’s motorcycle accident… two days later s%*t hit the fan.

  • Naturally Blue PAC for the New York Times – Springdale, Arkansas

    When I woke up this morning, I did my usual stuff. I made coffee, put the dog out and then opened up my computer to check facebook. I’m admitting it, it’s one of the first things I look at in the morning. I don’t like hot coffee, so I read facebook as my coffee cools…

  • 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…

  • New York Times – Turkeys – Ozark Arkansas

    I spent a couple of days in Ozark, Ark., working with a reporter from the New York Times on a story about Turkeys for the Thanksgiving Day paper.

  • Stock from New England – Travel Photographer

  • Track and Field – Sports Photogrpher

    Arkansas hosted several indoor track meets this season including the Tyson Invitational, Razorback Invitational, and the SEC Indoor Championships.

I’ve recently come to the conclusion…

  • Sports Photography Details

    While covering the Razorbacks for the University, the thing I’ve struggled with the most is not shooting action. Everything is important, not just the action on the field. I’ve really had to push myself this year to come up with more of the “detail” photos from the events we cover. I’ve had to really retrain…

  • Arkansas Football – Sports Photographer

    The photo of Mallett was a text request from my dad during the game.

His level of intensity is unbelievable throughout the entire game… you…

    Every year the women’s basketball team has portraits taken that they hang in the locker room. These are a little bit on the “glamour” side, so we shot at The Gardens next to the arena. I had fun photographing the girls and seeing them in cute clothes with make-up on, and hair fixed. It’s just…
