New Website/Blog

I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working.  For the last week and a half, I have been building and customizing a new website.  This new website will also incorporate my blog and eventually my photo archive where you can purchase prints.  I also tried to make the new website/blog social media friendly and now have a feature where you can share any part of my site on twitter, facebook, etc.  Additionally, another plus of the new website is that it will work on the iPhone and the iPad which may or may not be important… I guess we will find out.

I am still putting the finishing touches on the site and blog, but I at least have a workable version up and running at the moment.  As always, feedback is appreciated!

Anyway, you can view my new blog here (or by clicking the picture below):

And you can see my new website with my portfolio here (or by clicking the picture):

New Website

Last semester, I built a new website for myself in my Electronic Photo J class and I finally decided to make the link live.  I have been using livebooks.edu for my portfolio, but that costs about $100 a year.  I figure I can use that money for other purposes and this new website was a good enough replacement.  I am in the process of redesigning my logo as well.  Any constructive criticism is appreciated on the website.

Ghost Hunting

Chelsea and I went on a ghost hunt / “paranormal investigation” with the Kindred Moon Paranormal Society this past weekend to do a story for the Columbia Missourian.  We were supposed to go and investigate paranormal activity at Bridal Cave in Lake of the Ozarks but a wedding reception canceled those plans.  Instead, we went to a railroad bridge on the Katy Trail that is rumored to have a one-armed man lurking around it.

I decided that I wanted to photograph the entire night without a flash… only flashlights.  I figured a flash would make things look too unnatural.  To really get a feel for what it was like, I felt we needed to use only the flashlights.  Although Bridal Cave would have been a little more visually interesting, I think we did good with what we had.  Below is the multimedia piece that Chelsea and I put together along with a few of my photos.

Mizzou Volleyball

Another School Year

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while (I know, I know, you were all crying yourselves to sleep). But, since driving home from Reno I have been busy moving in, going to meetings, and getting back into another year of grad school. This semester I will be working for the Columbia Missourian so once I get into that groove, I’ll start to post new images.

In the mean time, here are a couple of random shots from the summer that I never posted.  The first one is from an assignment I went down to Las Vegas to shoot.  It was for a story on a local kid who plays for a summer basketball team in Las Vegas and is being recruited by a few different schools.  The next two photos are of the “Hot August Nights” classic car show that ran for a week in Reno.  Its one of the biggest car shows in the country and people drive in from across the country to attend.

Fishy Silhouettes

I spent this last “weekend” in Monterey/Carmel California to try and escape the Reno heat.  I think I escaped it a little too much because it never got above 62 degrees the whole time I was there (which is pretty damn chilly after getting out of a 56 degree Pacific Ocean).  It was foggy and cold my first morning so I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  I guess you could call it an “ironic” attraction considering the aquarium used to be a sardine canning factory dedicated to packaging tons and tons of dead fish.

I know that silhouettes are considered a little gimmicky in the photography world but I couldn’t help myself at the aquarium.  Too many kids pounding on the glass or trying to touch the fish.  To add to that, the aquarium had HUGE glass viewing areas– it was too perfect.   I probably spend a good 2 hours trying to get the right combination of fish/jellyfish/kid pointing or pounding on the glass. These are two of my favorites:

Baseball Sunset

Yeah, yeah, yeah… its just a pretty sunset picture, I know.  But it was one of the more unique sunsets I have seen in Reno so far.  I didn’t touch up this picture or do anything to the color/saturation/contrast.  This is exactly what the sky looked like last night.  I thought it was pretty cool looking.
