Hello, Baby!

I’m allowed to post family pictures once in a while, aren’t I?  This was from a session with the kids right after I got my new studio lights.  Heather was off playing tennis, so I kept the kids busy by taking their picture.  Elizabeth seemed fascinated by the camera and the lights – which made […]

Here come ‘da pain!

This is another shot from the Minneathlon ’07 promo photos.  After some false starts, I laid down on the floor in a conference room and said “Beat the $hit out of me”.  Well – at least make it look like it.  I wanted a street fight look – and I got one.  It was a […]

All the Little Ghosts ‘n Goblins

I had the grand idea on Halloween to give away portraits of the trick or treaters as they stopped by.  I set up my photo studio in the entryway and tethered my camera to a laptop so that I could instantly print the photo.  I ended up shooting about three dozen little ones and came […]

PinPimp Jr.

This is what you get at about two in the morning when your subject gets in the fight with “The Captain”.  Jesse “PinPimp Jr.” Bohnsack is throwin’ me the horns.  This later went on to be the cover art to his album “Devil Music” – available at WalMart and other fine retailers. Vital Stats: Canon […]

A Great Looking Dish

Disclaimer:  No children were harmed in the shooting of this picture This is my take on the ol’ “Bun in the Oven” joke.  For some reason, small children stuffed into things always makes for a good picture.  William was a good sport about it and let me get off several shots before deciding he had […]

Here with all my friends

William took a quick timeout at the Sculpture Garden in Seattle as we were touring it.  These orange chairs were all over – but William took a liking to these for some reason. Vital Stats: Canon 40D w/Canon 70-200 f/4L  @ 70mm  ISO100, f/4, 1/250s

Bridal Afterglow

In October, I had the honor of being one of my sister’s ‘official’ wedding photographers shooting second to the gracious and talented ElleG (  This is one of my favorites – and one of hers as well.  We were walking along the coastline in La Jolla right at dusk – and the light was perfect. […]

Team 0xDEADBEEF takes on all comers

Team 0xDEADBEEF’s team photo for the Summer 2008 Minneathlon at Logic.  The pose was their idea, the execution mine.  I used the popular 300 develop plug-in for Lightroom to give it the gritty look. Vital Stats: Canon 40D with the Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.  ISO 200, 1/125s at f/1.8

I’m here, world!

Here’s a shot many have seen – it’s my baby daughter Elizabeth’s birth announcement picture.  I wasn’t planning to take pictures of her that day – we were packing for our trip to Hawaii.  She looked so cute and the afternoon light was perfect – so I ran for the camera.  This shot was taken […]
