This past weekend I got to take some photos of some folks I know.
We had a fun Christmas card photo shoot with our cousin, Addison, during our Thanksgiving break. Lacey and Addison came up with some creative poses. I focused on camera work. We had a lot of fun with this, and Aunt Amanda did a great job with the Christmas card.
A great demonstration of musical talent took place at The Square Room here in Knoxville this evening. It’s really fun seeing these people getting better and better at what they do.
Homes of Love hosted its annual Dance for Love fundraising party again this weekend at The Square Room. I forget why, but I missed it last year, and was excited to be able to make it this time around. I was not disappointed. It was the best one yet. If you know nothing about Homes of Love, you should have a look at their website and see what they are all about.
Homes of Love works in Southeast Asia and Africa to establish and maintain loving, small, family-structured homes for orphaned and at-risk children. HOL seeks to reach children before they are trafficked, sexually exploited or put on the streets. We take a preventative approach to these problems common to vulnerable children. We are committed to the holistic, long-term care of these children until they become independent adults in their society.
Almost walked into this guy tonight. Sheesh! I’m not a big fan of spiders. At all. From what I can tell, though, he looks a lot like a
Garden Orb Web Spider (Eriophora transmarina). Scratch that, I have no clue what this guy/gal is. I have seen far too many photos of spiders on google now, though. Sheesh!
This is a pretty brilliant idea. I would like to try this technique at some point.
the project » one « focuses on the individual in a crowd. It particularly imitates the way in which the human eye observes: not viewing a crowd as a crowd, but observing little micro-scenes inside of it. all images are taken in london.

Just saw Josh Garrels live at the Camp House in Chattanooga. Loved his show. Only wish he had played a few more. I guess I’ll just have to come see him again when he comes back this way!
May 26, 2012 – I had the privilege of shooting Troy and Lauren’s big day.
It was a beautiful wedding. I showed up in time to shoot some of the pre-ceremony preparations, which is always a great way to capture some of the lasting memories from the wedding day. I also had some invaluable help from my friend and colleague, Thomas Gentry.
Also spent a good deal of time with the packaging and printing of the DVDs. These DVD cases were custom crafted from textured paper and I printed each disc with a high quality inkjet printer. I shot the photography used in the packaging, and some of it was using still video frames (which worked surprisingly well).

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten to spend some fun times with my nephew, Jack. He will turn five years old this summer, and he’s already got a sweet passion for playing, dancing, conversing, and educating himself. It’s pretty awesome to watch.
