Backyard Randomness


Just a collection of random shots photographed in my backyard over the spring and summer this year.  🙂  The thing about being a photographer is sometimes the scenes that unfold in front of you sometimes “scream” at you to have your camera at the ready at all times. 

Hope you like them! 🙂 

As always have a great day and stay positive!

A Band Called Virago


On June 3, I was photographing the Relay for Life Linn County.  This band came on and I got basically hooked on the music as soon as they started playing, so I started grabbing some shots of them performing! 

Those of you who know me personally, know how much I love live music, and if there is one thing I like better than being a photographer and listening to music, it would be photographing live music!  🙂 

The name of the band is Virago and the music they play is well “awesome” 

The lead singer’s voice is what I think hooked me, she reminds me of Josh Stone in a way.  Anyway here is a few of the shots I got, hope you enjoy!  🙂 

For you photography “gear heads” out there, these were shot with my favorite lens, the Canon 70-200 2.8L IS.  A lens that in order to separate it from me will have to be pried from my cold dead hands!  LoL  😉  

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Artistic Adventures 4


Once again, it’s been a while since I posted some personal work, too long!  LoL 

The weather has been getting warmer and it reminded me of trips out to the blind and that I hadn’t posted any of these images yet. 

Late last fall, I went out to Lake MacBride Raptor Center with Greg Frieden and Stubby Webb, two really good friends of mine.  What a great place! 

You can not only get up close and personal with the raptors that are in their care, but they also have a blind.  The blind is SUPER for observing nature and birds and wildlife of all types.  We were able to observe deer, cardinals, raccoons, finches, and woodpeckers all while sitting in the blind. 

Great way to get away from everyday life and just enjoy being alive!  You can really learn a lot about life just watching nature.  

 

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Pelicans in Iowa?


Pelicans in Iowa?  That was the same question Greg Frieden and myself were asking when we spotted them one day last October while we were out at Lake MacBride. 

Tuns out they nest in western Canada and in larger lake regions in the western US and that they regularly migrate through Iowa in spring and fall.

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Who said a wedding image can’t hang in an art gallery? :)


Back around the end of December I found out that one of  my wedding images was selected to be in the A Smith Gallery’s “Romance Show”.  See my previous post for further details.

They also decided to use it for a promo for the “Romance Show”.  🙂 

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!
