  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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. I have added new clients this year, including photographing eCommerce for P. Allen Smith. Toward the end of 2014, they launched www.shop.pallensmith.com, an online store that offers unique gifts and decor for the home…

  • 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

  • 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,…

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

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Louisiana – Lafayette – Football – Sports Photography

    I recently photographed the season opener for the Arkansas Razorbacks football against. Louisiana-Lafayette. I’ve been covering the Hogs for over a decade now, and it seems like the time I start to get into the groove of their system, they change coaches. I almost dreaded going to shoot the game that morning in anticipation of…

  • 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…

  • 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,…

  • Spurs vs. Thunder – NBA Playoffs – Sports Photography

    At the beginning of June, I got a last minute call to cover the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder in game 4 of the playoffs. I’m not stretching when I say last minute… I had just finished a run at the lake when my editor called and said that the scheduled second shooter…

  • Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State – Sports Photographer

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a short trip up North to cover the Cowboys vs. Cyclones game in Ames, Iowa. Going in, I had no idea that it would turn into such an exciting game, and end up being such an upset.  After 2 overtimes, Iowa State defeated No. 2 Oklahoma State, and…

  • Stock from New England – Travel Photographer

    I recently took a little trip up north and thought I’d post a few photos from a day of playing with the camera. It was fun to get out and just shoot. There were no pressures to produce, light or make someone look good… just have fun!

  • 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.…

  • Professional Photographer Logo

    I have a logo thanks to Mark Fonville, and I’m excited about the design. You can check out his work at markfonville.com SaveSave SaveSave

  • 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…

  • Hike with Hap – Personal

    I went for a run at Lake Fayetteville today and came across a Mulberry tree as I was trotting along. I stopped, ate a few berries and went down the path. I started thinking about how my dad and I grew up in the same house and how as kids we both used to pick…

  • Recent Photo shoots – Commercial and Sports photographer

    Dec. 3, 2009 Sarah Palin stopped by Fayetteville to sign autographs at Sam’s Club on a REALLY COLD day in Fayetteville. This was my hail-mary with my 80-200 to get a shot of the crowd. I cracked up at this woman who had a baby blanket wrapped around her head as she waited to meet…

  • Basketball update – Sports photography

    Wow, has it really been a month since I last updated my blog? I’ve covered several basketball games over the last month and I thought I would just post a few frames from each game. Here you go! Dec. 22, 2009 — Arkansas 66 – Missouri State 62 Rotnei Clarke celebrates after shooting a three-point…

  • Arkansas vs. South Alabama – Sports Photographer

    The game wasn’t too exciting, but the 1/2 time show was AWESOME! Too bad the stands were so empty and more people didn’t get to see the dogs! I just like this photo… the look, the tie. Other than the dogs, this was the best part of the night. SaveSave

  • Day Hike turned tour of Northwest Arkansas – travel photographer

    Gilli, Hap and I decided to spend Saturday out in the woods. We picked Alum Cove hike out of Tim Ernst’s book, Arkansas Day Hikes for Kids and Families. It was a simple drive to Deer, home of the Antlers, and up FR#1206 a few miles for a short hike to one of the “largest…

  • Arkansas vs. Georgia, 41-52 – Sports Photography

    A great game for photos of passes. Other than that, it was so long ago that I can’t remembering anything else… Oh, and a couple of hard hits. Ouch! And the helmet is off! Nothing feels better than a cleat to the face… ouch! SaveSave SaveSave

  • Today was a day of family portraits – Personal – Beach photography

    While walking down the beach, we ran into a guy fishing who was reeling in a shark. He was nice enough to take it off the hook and let us touch it. I must say that I’m pretty freaked out by the amount of sharks he’s been catching everyday just down the beach from us.…

  • phoHOGraphy from the game – Personal

    Ok people, i think we had a little too much fun on the sidelines last night! I’ve imagined a little conversation for this next photo… SARA (to herself): “if i don’t see it, it’s not there.” BIG RED: that sure is a big lens, i bet you can see the hair in the qb’s nose…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Razorback Invitational

    Let me start off by giving a BIG THANK YOU to Marc for loaning me his coat… I don’t think I would’ve made it through the evening without it. You would think by now I would know how to dress for a sporting event, but when I left the house this morning, I thought I…

  • Arkansas Razorback Basketball

    I’ve been feeling really rusty shooting lately, but here are a few images from the last couple of games. Ark 67 – Texas 61. Go Hogs! Can you believe the upset No. 7 Texas??? What a game. The crowd reminded me, and my ears, of the days of Nolan. Fun stuff! What’s up with the…
