    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…

  • 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…

  • 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:…

  • 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,…

  • 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. Because I have photographed him before, I started to wonder what I could do differently for this photo shoot. My thought process made me think about all of the social media photos I’ve seen of the green…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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.…

  • AY Magazine- Arkansas Editorial Photographer

    I’ve been photographing for Ay Magazine quite a bit in recent months. I have really enjoyed the type of work I’ve been doing for the publication, and have really enjoyed the people I’ve photographed and new friendships made. I think the assignment I look forward to every month is the food review. Seriously, how lucky…

  • 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…

  • 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.    …

  • Doggie anyone? – pet portrait

    I spent Sunday morning taking photos of and writing about some of the dogs that are up for adoption at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter. I thought this would be a great way to give a little time and honor my friend Josh, who passed away last year. I really enjoyed my time with each animal…

  • Lastest Photography work – Commercial and editorial work

    The mass update… Meet Mike Woods, the human light-stand. I had a very fun time shooting Arkansas’ D.J. Williams… I’ll have to rate it as one of my most favorite photo shoots! This guy has it going on… a great personality, great tight end, singer/songwriter/pianist and played drums in the high school band. Great shoot……
