Helping out an outstanding student
Download GrowIT App and Follow Courtney Fay Cooper

I wrote a blog post on +Turf Diseases's website. If you have a minute to help out this student, please do so. She's awesome and well deserving. She's also a pretty damn good photographer so there's crossover for me here between that and turf. 
So this is an unusual post, but I'm putting it out there anyway. Turf Diseases was started as a grassroots effort by myself and four other faculty in the turf industry. One of the best things about this industry is the networking and assistance that everyone provides for each other. Well, when former Senior Manager…

Greensight Agronomics
Chief Agronomy Officer

Press Release
http://www.golfcourseindustry.com/gci/041415-GreenSight-Kaminski-agronomics.aspx#.VS0QCx0nnFk.twitter

I'm excited to announce that I have signed on with GreenSight Agronomics as their Chief Agronomy Officer (CAO). This is an awesome venture that combines my agronomic and research expertise with my love of photography and technology. The concept is to use drones to collect data daily and provide management decisions for golf courses. This could be the next big thing in terms of golf and the environment.

The potential for saving water (where most outside the industry already see golf as wasteful) is reason enough alone to take a closer look.

I'm also secretly looking forward for the potential to fly some cool drones. I bet even +Trey Ratcliff would be jealous. HA!

Who wouldn't be jealous? Super cool, John! Congrats!

Hey, can I hire you to use a drone to track my ball when I play so I don't lose so many?  :)

Mine is. Is yours?
 
All of my Photographer friends with websites, I hope you have designed them with mobile support! If not your page ranking among mobile users could go down.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/parmyolson/2015/04/20/googles-mobile-search-ranking-showdown/
Websites that aren’t mobile friendly will sink lower in Google rankings starting Tuesday, and names as big as Microsoft and The Daily Mail could be affected.

Elyse Grassmuck
Old School Hollywood in San Antonio

I recently shot with Elyse in San Antonio. It was a little cold out (35F), but we managed to get some shots outside and around the pool. The goal was a old school hollywood feel with a magazine-spread look.

Introduction

I've always been interested in photography both for work and for fun, but it wasn't until 2012 that I really started to focus on the art of shooting people. My interest in portraiture began rather technically as a way to better understand lighting and techniques, but quickly evolved into a passion for working with and directing people. 

“My style has evolved over the years, but slowly started to focus on capturing beauty with painterly imagery.”

While my photography started as a hobby, it’s now an obsession. Since I have a full time job that I love, I have the ability to pick projects that interest me. What I choose to shoot, I choose for art and creativity. Whether it be a personal shoot, an update to a model’s portfolio, or a brand-specific concept; I am very selective in the projects and clients that I choose to work with. This allows me to put all of my effort into getting the most out of the subject instead of rushing to get it completed. 

If you are interested in learning more about my photography or would like to work with me on a specific project, please contact me. If you’re excited about creating something beautiful for yourself or your brand then I am excited about working with you.

Google+ Gets The Social Network Parody Treatment [VIDEO]
mashable.com

Early adopters, rabid invite seekers and the overwhelmingly male population of Google’s social network — this parody takes them all on.

I've been going to Lydia at Viva Bella since moving to the area and can't say enough good things about her and the entire staff. In the past when selecting a salon in a new area I would get a great first haircut where the stylist paid attention to the details. After 2-3 times going I would find that it was a rush job and didn't really get me what I wanted (and I'm not even picky). For the first time, I can honestly say that the last haircut I had was as good as the first. As a guy, I realize that I'm not there primary clientele but they do a great job on men and women. I liked them so much I have even started using them to help out with hair for my portrait photography studio. They just do fantastic work. Regardless of the style or job, they are professional, talented and just plain fun to be around. I highly recommend them for men or women looking for an excellent experience that you can guarantee will be the same from the first cut or style to your most recent.
