    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…

  • The story behind photographing Rosanne Cash for National Geographic Traveler

    Growing up with a mother as a musician, I’ve been exposed to so many styles of music but the one that has really stuck with me is folk. I love the simplicity, the words, and especially the stories behind the words. A song is so much more than just notes and words, just like photo is…

  • 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…

  • 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. This is my fourth year to work on this series, and it is one that I always look forward to shooting.   Mike Malone with the Northwest Arkansas Council. This year had a little twist to…

  • Environmental Portrait – Ramsay Ball – Arkansas Photographer

    Beth, I can’t tell you how many people have complemented me on the photo you took for Ar Biz. I asked you to make me look good and you worked a miracle! Best wishes, Ramsay Ball

  • 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…

  • Jeannette Balleza Collins – Creative Portrait – Arkansas Photographer

    I was excited to be asked by a business publication to take a portrait of Jeannette Balleza Collins. Excited because she is not only an awesome person, but she’s a long-time friend. Jeannette and I went to high school together and our paths have continually crossed during the last 20 years. It seems like we mostly…

  • Mark Zweig – Architect – Fayetteville Arkansas Photographer

    I recently photographed Fayetteville architect and businessman Mark Zweig. I was really excited to meet him since I’ve admired his homes for many years on my drives through town. I can’t help but like someone who is making my city look better a little at a time. For the shoot, I wanted to try to…

  • 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:…

  • Nolan Richardson – 40 Minutes of Hell – Arkansas Basketball

      I recently photographed former Arkansas Razorback coach Nolan Richardson. It was such an honor to meet him, and I must say that I was a little star struck. When I look back at the last 20 years in Fayetteville, Nolan has always been a presence. I began attending the U of A in 1995 when…

  • Portrait Bret Bielema – Arkansas Football

    In May, I photographed Arkansas Razorback head football coach Bret Bielema for AY Magazine’s powerful men. Environmental photographs are always fun because I get the chance to make the ideas in my head come to life. When I was contacted about the assignment, I knew I wanted to show him with “Never Yield,” a slogan…

  • 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. One of my more recent shoots was for the promotional materials…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Website Redesign – Arkansas Photographer

    Welcome to the new look of Beth Hall Photography! You will find a lot of changes here with a new opening page, a fun look to the blog, more recent work and FINALLY a bio.  I am really excited about all of the new features, but the best thing is everything is now in one place!…

  • gradPSYCH Magazine – Arkansas Editorial Photographer

    In June I photographed psychology students and teachers for gradPSYCH magazine. It’s funny how many things I photograph that I can’t post about for a period of time following the shoot… editorial photography is funny that way. I’ve gotten really good at keeping things under wrap! We ended up taking the photo in the waiting…

  • 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,…

  • 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.…

  • Marta Collier – Little Rock Business Portrait Shoot

    I traveled to Little Rock for a photo shoot of Marta Collier, a doctoral student at the University of Arkansas. She recently began working as the education outreach coordinator and professional development supervisor for the Arkansas Science & Technology Authority. I had a good time talking with her and working through my lights and poses. It’s always…

  • The Duggar Family welcomes a second grandchild.

    I first met the Duggars when covering primary elections for US Senate in 2002. I was working for the Arkansas-Democrat-Gazette, and I remember standing outside Westside Freewill Baptist Church in Springdale, Ark., with April L. Brown (AP) and waiting for the Duggars to arrive so we could photograph Jim Bob and Michelle casting their votes.…

  • 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.    …

  • Arkansas Athletics – Sports Photographer

    In the past couple of months I have been busy shooting photos for the 19 different sports at the University of Arkansas. While there have been numerous, not so glamorous “mug” shots, I thought I would upload some of the more entertaining shots from my outings. It has been fun to work with the athletes…

  • Portraits

    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…
