Farm Progress Show 2013

Enjoyed my first Farm Progress experience. Having a client with a large booth with my work prominently on display was a big draw, but regardless, it was a great experience. Precision Planting has been a fantastic client for the past couple years. They've brought me on board for a number of creative projects and it was great to see all our work culminate together in their booth this year. Lot's of great stuff!

Van Till Family Farm Winery

Did some work recently for some friends of mine out in Missouri who own their own winery. Needless to say I had a load of fun working on this project and being able to enjoy the product (and props) after the shoot was definitely an added bonus.

Precision Planting Apparel

Here is just a sneak-peek into one of the many projects that have been keeping us busy. 
Once again we had the pleasure of working with our friend, Alex, over at Precision Planting. This time we focused on an apparel shoot for their internal catalog.

Crazy Couture Community Photo Shoot

Every once in awhile we get the opportunity to connect with the creative community here in Peoria. Collaborative portfolio projects, like this, are a great way to keep creativity fresh, get a little crazy, and just have fun.

Precision Planting- Products

You will most definitely be seeing more assignments from our friends over at Precision Planting. Precision strives to design and produce after-market agricultural planting implements that improve depth control, singulation, seed environment and yield. The products that are shown here are just a few of the tools which were used in the company's brochures.

Season of Growth

Black Olive Photographic
Where do I begin? That's actually a question plaguing me for a while now as I pick up the pieces from an extremely busy, but good, 2012. While jobs were coming in and content was piling up, I have been getting increasingly more frantic just trying to keep my head above water. Add on top of it moving into a new office studio space and it has just been insane. I greatly appreciate my clients who have been patient with me during this hectic time. With all this new busy-ness I have been hiring an assistant on a regular basis and am now adding an office manager to the books. Hopefully between the three of us we'll be able to kick this studio into shape and maximize efficiency and get back on schedule. So without any further ado, let me introduce you to the new "crew."

Sierra Candler
As an aspiring photographer herself and a long-time friend, Sierra was an obvious choice as my assistant. Add her lively personality and mind reading ability and it is even more clear. She brings her own unique perspective to each shoot and helps keep the day light-hearted and on task. Assignments would definitely be a more dull experience without her presence.

Lenna Candler
It's kind of crazy that I'm putting Lenna in charge of my studio, but for some reason I'm convinced it is a good idea. As another close friend and one who "un-creepily" enjoys keeping tabs on my whereabouts [inside joke], she definitely met the pre-reqs. Considering the fact that she is organized just sweetens the deal! The majority of Facebook and blog content will be coming from her hand so make sure to stay tuned as projects roll through.

David Price
And... for those who don't know me. I am the wizard behind the curtain!  My name is David and I've been working at this whole commercial advertising photographer thing for several years now. It has been a hoot and I'm looking forward to many more exciting years before I throw in the towel.
