Cory's Wedding

Last weekend Cory and Misti got hitched and i took some photos.  I think they turned ok considering the lighting inside the chapel.  Well it's almost summer and I've got a few weddings that i'll be photographing, the first of which is on Sunday!  I'm super excited to get this under way.  Stay tuned...

new pictures

Yesterday i was driving back from KC, and i was in no hurry.  As i was driving i noticed a few places to pull over that looked like there might be some good opportunities for some photos.  To this point, i've never really tried to do any time lapse photography, so with the sun disappearing, i thought it high time for some experimenting!  I'm pleased with the results and hope to try to learn more soon.  Below is one of the shots i got, and there are more at  Also, keep tuned in for some new engagement pics!

talent show

I've got some new photos up from a talent show that i attended.  I'm pretty excited about the results, as i had never attempted shooting such an occasion.  Unfortunately, since i was merely a spectator at this event, i could not move around for different angles.  Thus, i was very limited as to what i could shoot, but despite that i think the shots turned out alright.  I'd like some feedback on this shoot, so tell me what you think!

My friends Ethan and Sandra have decided to marry each other this June.  I had the opportunity to shoot some spur-of-the-moment engagement shots while they were in town last week.  I'll be shooting their wedding in June.  I'm proud of them and it should be a good wedding.  See more shots @

 Hey listen, I'll shoot pics for you too if you like.

new lens!

hey pals.  on friday i purchased a 50mm 1.4 lens.  boom.  i'm excited because this thing takes some pretty shots.  i attached a picture of my dad that i shot with the new lens.  i hope to get some more stuff up soon, but in the mean time i've posted some old pictures on my flickr from 2010.  i think they are neat shots, even tho some of them aren't very high quality.

outdoor ed

so maybe you ask what's next in life for this fella. well as i posted before, i really loved teaching outdoor education. so, i've been in contact with a privately owned camp in colorado where i plan to teach outdoor ed. this spring. i have a phone interview with them on thursday and if everything goes well i'll be starting in mid march. i'm excited. it gives me a good reason not to be in the midwest in the spring when that one plant - whatever it is - pollinates and almost kills me every year.

the outdoor ed. gig will last me 2ish months and then... who really knows?? actually, i've applied for over 25 jobs with the National Parks service and National Forest service. mostly i applied to be a wild land forest fire fighter, but i also applied for trail maintenance positions. i applied for places like yosemite NP, glacier NP, pretty much anything in the northern rocky mountains, and even alaska. i guess its now a waiting game to see what i'm accepted for. i don't really have any experience doing any of that stuff, but hey it's worth a shot to do something wild and new, right?

in the mean time, it snowed here last week and it was quite beautiful! the picture to the right and the one below are a snippet of my work, but check for more of the shots i took of the winter wonderland.

hey there folks! well i'm glad to announce that this weekend i feel like i really got my foot in the door with photography. my pal alec ( was gracious enough to let me shadow him whilst shooting a wedding. i took my camera along and shot some pictures and i'm really happy with the results. i've included a couple of shots to give you an idea. anyhoo, i'd like to get more experience. so, if you'd like some pictures done i'd be up for the challenge. to see more of my work, go to

hey there. so i've been getting lots of practice in on taking photos. i'm not so sure it's something i want to do for a living, but it's a fun side gig. who knows, maybe i'll make some money on the side someday. i guess i could practice some by offering that service to people... wanna be a model? haha.

i'll post a couple of photos on the blog here and a link to my photobucket (

so at the moment i'm unemployed. it's enjoyable. i'm looking into getting a job with the national park system or national forest system. i'm looking to maybe get a start by fighting forest fires for the summer. it sounds like a bit of an adventure and a good step into the park service.

i'm planning to post more picture on here and on my photobucket, so keep lookin!
