Last Rays of November

Now, why on earth don’t I get sunsets like this when I’m on a nature shoot?   The late November sunsets right off of my deck have been spectacular lately – and yesterday’s was no exception.  I was actually running out the door to go over to my wife’s cousin’s place when I saw this […]

What I’m Thankful For

This Thanksgiving weekend, I want to give a special shout-out to the one that I’m really thankful for – my beautiful wife.  Her unending love and support is the sole reason that I’m able to undertake the fun photographic business journey that I’m on now.. and I’m hugely grateful.  I’ve got so many blessings this […]

Who Else Can Help Out?

I had a unique opportunity on Saturday night to photography a 700-person charity ball.  It was the Jeremiah Program’s Bullfrog Bash.  It was certainly the ‘See and Be Seen’ event of the fall with many Twin Cities luminaries in attendance.  The image above was of one of the charity auctioneers raising money for the program.  […]

Do Not Feed The Bass Player

I love a captured moment like this – Donavan was in the middle of some wild headbanging during a recent Smokescreen show.  I was on the side of the stage trying to get a perfectly focused capture of the headbang – which is difficult since i’m using a long lens, a long exposure, and a […]

Cash for Clunkers #2

This ancient pickup has certainly seen better days.. probably about 75 years worth of better days.  The remains of this pickup is sitting at almost 12,000 feet above sea level – it is just above Animas Forks on the way to California Gulch.  It is so fun shooting in the San Juan mountains – there […]

The Goose is Loose

This ugly duckling is called the Galloping Goose.  It was a contraption created by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad for passenger service on the narrow gauge railways in southwestern Colorado and northern New Mexico.  It’s the crazy love child of a box car, a bus, and a Packard V12 motor.  Today, there are a […]

A Bird In The Hand

What is a trip to the beach without an obligatory shot of a seagull?  I had a couple of hours to kill after I finished up my workshop in Newport Beach two weeks ago, so I headed down to the beach at Newport Beach.  As I was walking down the pier, this guy decided to […]

Kristina and Glen

This is Kristina and Glen – and I’ve got the huge honor of being their wedding photographer.  This is a shot from their engagement stills+fusion shoot two weeks ago at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  I knew it was going to be fun based on our initial meeting – but I had no idea how much […]

The Writing Is On The Wall

Here is one of the iconic spots in Wisconsin’s beautiful Door County.  It is Anderson’s Dock in Ephraim, WI.  Back in the old days, the winners of the yacht race would paint their boat name/team name on the building.  Today, anybody can write their name on the building, provided some simple rules and respect are […]

Lindye and Winn

Last week, I had the privilege of attending Dane Sanders’ Fast Track Workshop in Newport Beach, CA.  It was a fantastic workshop designed to help photographers focus on their personal brand and to take their photography business to the next level and beyond.  One of the high points of the week was a shootout held […]
