Mackenzie - High School Senior

High school senior photography is just small facet of the photographic work I do, but I do enjoy it. Mackenzie was so much fun to work with. Working with someone who enjoys being in front of the camera as much as I do behind it is always a blessing. Anyway, I hope you enjoy her images.

Midwestern Agriculture - Commercial

Here's a new image series I produced to add some variety to my portfolio. I captured some harvesting shots last fall and decided I needed to get some representing the planting process.

There is often a whole lot more going into any given commercial image than a camera man and a subject. As usual I was the photographer in this instance. However, I had considerable help throughout the entire process. Alex Neukomm contributed his creative expertise in the area of art direction. Kevin Schick and Emil Bandy were the farming experts because as you might have guessed I am no farmer. Sierra Candler did a fine job behind the BTS camera. I am looking forward to getting that video together sometime soon. In addition to that I would be remiss in not giving credit Brian Niesen for his excellent farmer modeling skills, to Lenna Candler who helped out with food, and the Schick family for letting us take over their farm for a few hours. With all their help the creation of these images was made possible, thanks!

Wedding Videography

To separate our wedding business from our commercial endeavors we have created a special blog just for our wedding videography. By removing the confusion of trying to reach both markets simultaneously we're making it easier for our readers to catch the news that's pertinent to them.

Another commercial lifestyle photoshoot

Recently hit the country roads with my friend Steven to capture some new commercial images for my portfolio.  Steven was awesome in his color coordinated get-up. If you remember we did a Mtn Biking series back in 2010. This could sort of be considered continuations of that series. I'm hoping to add more "biking" pix to my portfolio over this summer. We'll see if I'm able to get around to it.

Andrew Blahnik's "Blank Pages" Kick Starter

A good musician friend of mine down in Nashville has launched a Kickstarter project to get his latest album off the ground. If you've watched very many of my wedding videos you've probably heard a song or two of his. Anyway, he's been writing away and is now ready to hit the recording studio, but he needs your help.

His new album is titled "Blank Pages" and he's using a few images I captured for him. Go to his Kick Starter page and make a contribution!

A portrait of the doctor behind Piggy Paste®

This last December I was assigned by Medical Economics Magazine to photograph a Peoria local for their January 10th issue. The subjects name was Dr. Paul Kinsinger and he brought us Piggy Paste. Dr. Paul was an absolute hoot to work with. He is probably the most down to earth individual I've had the privilege of photographing! Below are a few captures of the final image in Medical Economics Magazine.

BTS featured on fstoppers' Wednesday Rundown

I woke up this morning and checked out fstoppers website to see my name screaming at me in their most recent post. If you're not familiar with fstoppers CHECK THEM OUT! They're a great resource for photographers of all experience levels.

I recently submitted a BTS video to their annual behind the scenes competition. I still haven't heard anything regarding the final results of the contest, but I'd say this is a good sign.
