    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…

  • Corporate Interior Photographer

    Can you drop a camera and take a good photo?

    My old boss always had random sayings about photography that really didn’t make much sense, but somehow they still run through my head all these years later. I don’t remember the exact saying, but he used to talk about dropping a camera and every once in a while you would end up accidentally taking a good…

  • F8 and be there — with a little bit a luck.

    Have you ever heard the phrase “f8 and be there?” It’s attributed to being said by Weegee (Arthur Fellig) in the late 40’s, and it’s a phrase that comes through my head every time I am in one of those “is this really happening” moments. A couple of Saturday’s ago, I was driving to Eureka Springs…

    2015- A year of changes for this Arkansas Photographer

    On this last day of the year, I thought I would make my final blog post a reflection on the changes in my photography business. There were a lot of phone calls, emails, photo shoots, miles traveled and friends made along the way. My regular photography clients expanded from Northwest Arkansas into Little Rock and I put a…

  • Hugos – Fayetteville, Arkansas – Food Photographer

    When I moved to Fayetteville almost 20 years ago, Hugos was the first restaurant I visited for lunch. It’s the place where the locals go that has a great assortment of food on the menu. They have awesome burgers and sandwiches, and a good selection of vegetarians options. The bottom line is you can’t go wrong with anything on the…

  • 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.…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Find Your Footprint–P&G Future Friendly/National Geographic — PR Photography

    Last week, I photographed the P&G Future Friendly/National Geographic Find Your Footprint winner’s assembly. Schools across the nation submitted their best ideas for going green, they were narrowed down to six entries and the the public voted on the best one. Wouldn’t you know it that the second-graders at Walker Elementary in Springdale, Ark., won!…

  • 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.    …

  • 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 covered the events for several schools, which is always fun because it gives me a chance to photograph a variety of athletes, and work with schools outside of Arkansas. I’ve recently come to the conclusion…

  • Stock Photography of Fayetteville Arkansas

    Fayetteville received a record 15 to 19 inches of snow yesterday. Here are a few photos I shot for the Associated Press, as well as some that were shot this morning just so I could get out and play in the snow. On top of the record breaking snow-fall, we had record breaking low temperatures……

  • Arkansas Basketball – Sports photography

    Basketball season has just started and Pelphrey is in full swing already. He has to be one of the most entertaining people to photograph, always with a great expression! The last two photos are from an assignment I picked up from the Memphis Commercial Appeal. I was asked to cover the Victory basketball team as…

  • 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…

  • Work Photos – sports and editorial photographer

    Photography of track athletes at the Razorback Invitational. So i thought i would throw in this last photo of London Crawford just to show off his tattoos. To think that I’ve covered him during football season, and I had no clue he had this much ink! Here’s a shot of a few guys from C.R.…

  • Artsy stuff – personal

    Long story short, I shot these water photos with the lyrics, “Ripple in still water, When there is no pebble tossed, Nor wind to blow,” running though my mind. I was thinking about our dear friend Josh and how fitting it was that his cousin sang that song at his funeral. Marcus, Hap and I…

  • 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…

  • Final Vacation Update – Personal – Beach photography

    We’ve been back for several days, but I’m finally making a post with the last of our vacation photos. We had a blast and look forward to next year…. amazingly we all got along! Beach races… More bird feeding photos, but I thought I’d try to change it up a bit. More family portraits. I…

  • 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.…

  • More Vacation Photos – Beach photography – Personal

    Well, I can’t come up with anything interesting to say… So I’ll just say that we’re having fun! (if you can’t tell by the picts!) SaveSave

  • 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…

  • Arkansas vs. Missouri State – Sports Photographer

    Fun first game of the season in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium. I borrowed a Nikon d300 and WOW, I was amazed by the color and ambient light in the photos. While I like my d2x, it’s time for an upgrade. I can’t get over the fact that photos from a night game at…

  • Race for the Cure – Personal

    I had a great time at the race for the cure and finished just seconds over 30 minutes. I’m a slow runner, so I was very happy with my time being just under 10 minute miles… especially since I only trained for a couple of weeks! Thanks to everyone who donated to Save the Boobies!…

  • Catching up – freelance photographer

    I’ve been busy lately shooting stuff for Bloomberg, and the Associated Press. Bloomberg hired me to shoot photos for a story on the fresh produce at Wal-mart and how the quality has improved over the past few months. Going in, I thought it would be a fairly easy assignment, but while I was there I…

  • Kentucky 79, Arkansas 63 — Meeks 45 – Sports Photography

    So 45 points sounds amazing until you talk to Shupe and learn that 54 points is his career-high. Seriously?! Jodie Meeks.   Pelphrey expressed a bit of anger during the game when he grabbed Clarke’s jersey. SaveSave

  • Photos From Saturday

    Saturday morning I shot an open house for the Engineering Dept. at the University of Arkansas. I thought this couple was really cute! Wonder what they’re talking about! After my shoot I ran to target and came across this guy in the parking lot. The first thing that popped in my mind was someone dropped…

  • Now you know someone famous…..

    Hap and I are in the Sept. issure of Southern Living. Our good friend, and park ranger, Tim invited us to bike last fall b/c a SL photographer was coming out to shoot the park. We’ve waited a whole year to see if we made the cut, and WE DID! Check us out next time…

  • Tyson Invitational Track – Sports Photographer

    Here are a few picts from the Tyson Invitational. I always enjoy shooting track because I’m fascinated by the athlete’s muscles… especially the pole vaulters! I usually suck at shooting the pole vault competition, but I had a little bit of luck tonight. Must be the 300mm! Adam Nelson’s throw of 73 feet 6 inches…

  • Arkansas 80 — #20 Florida 61 – Sports Photographer

    Another exciting basketball game. Too bad April was sick and had to miss it… If you were wondering why all of the coaches were wearing kicks with their suits, it was for Coaches vs. Cancer® National Awareness Weekend. SaveSave
