    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…

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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 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,…

  • Fossil Cove Brewing Company – Ben Mills – Environmental Portrait

    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:…

  • 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…

  • Jeff Long – Arkansas Razorbacks – Sports Photographer

    “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. Well, I recently photographed Jeff Long for Ay Magazine and was really hoping to take images of Jeff away from the Razorbacks. He has been photographed for numerous publications since April,…

  • 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. That’s about as far as I’m going to go with comments on the situation, but it’s become pretty interesting here over the past week. I’m ready for a decision to be made so I can take…

  • 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…

  • 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. We visited the Butterball, LLC., processing plant in Ozark and watched turkeys get sorted, stuffed, bagged and packaged for shipping. Pretty interesting process. On day two we…

  • Joe Martin Stage Race- Fayetteville, Arkansas

    Happy Mother’s Day! It was so rewarding to watch Hap “compete” in the kid’s race at the Joe Martin Stage Race this afternoon around the Fayetteville square. He was so excited to bump up and compete in the 1-mile ride with the big kids, and he handled the last hill like a champ! The ride…

    A portrait at Godwin-Charles Ogbeide at Lights of the Ozarks for the Fayetteville Visitors Guide. A portrait for the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal in front of Washington Regional Medical Center.

  • 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 Photojournalist

    Barbara Burlsworth receives a hug from former Arkansas head coach Danny Ford on Monday, August 23, 2010, in Fayetteville, Ark., following the unveiling of the Burlsworth Trophy in honor of her late son, Brandon Burlsworth. Brandon was an offensive lineman for the Razorbacks from 1996-1998, and was selected in the third round of the 99…

  • LPGA – Sports Photographer

    The P & G NW Arkansas Championship came to town Sept. 10-12. I feel like I walked around a little lost the first couple of days, but by Sunday I was able to focus in, and work on making pretty pictures. I was entertained by the sidewalk art this year and thought I’d share my favorite…

  • 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…

  • AA Softball Championships – Sports Photographer

    Foreman vs. Junction City I covered the AA softball championships for the El Dorado News last weekend and unfortunately the team I covered lost. I still managed to get a few good images from the game despite the outcome… Reyes had it easy shooting the winning team! After the game, the girls from both teams…

  • photoshopped image of Matt Joens

    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…

  • Ice Storm – Northwest Arkansas – Editorial Photographer

    Gov. Mike Beebe came to Fayetteville today to check out the damage from the ice storm. I thought he was going to tour the area, but I think he only stopped at Drake field for a press conference before heading to Harrison. I bet an aerial view of the area was amazing! They arrived in…

  • More ice storm photos – Arkansas – editorial photographer

    Here are a few more photos from my AP run today. The American Red Cross shelter at Har-Ber High School in Springdale. There weren’t many people there when I was there, but they said they had 79 people stay with them last night. One of the women I shot was displaced by hurricane Katrina. It’s…

  • Ice Storm 2009 – Fayetteville, Arkansas – Editorial photographer

    There are no words that really describe what it looks like here in Fayetteville… at least no words from someone who dislikes writing. A huge ice storm hit last night and destroyed trees and power lines. We stood outside yesterday afternoon and listened to the trees break throughout the neighborhood… it was very surreal. I…

  • McDonnell retires – Editorial Photographer
