Trey's parents gravitated toward this one as their favorite, ordering a wall portrait from it. I had overlooked it, but I really think they made a great choice! He threw me for a loop when he unexpectedly arrived in a suit, but I think the setting works really well. It was a great session!

So, I'm typically early. Chronically early. If I'm on time, I'm late. If I'm early, then I'm on time. If I'm late, that's awful. Which works out when your subject is running late. Often, we ...

An outtake form 501 Life Magazine that was actually one of my favorites. She was pretty patient with my failed attempts at finding soccer goals.

We didn't let a little rain (actually, a lot of rain) prevent us from getting this shot of UCA's Jacob Campbell for the spring issue of UCA Magazine.

For a while, I’ve had some images rolling around in my head. Actually, I always have images rolling around in my head. Whenever I’m driving, or walking around, having coffee with a friend, I...

I may have become a beach person after all.
Crystal has heard me say it many times: I'm not a beach person. It's nothing against the lapping waves and white sand, either. It's beautiful. It's relaxing. But, given the choice of a vacation, I ...

I tried sharing this earlier, but for some reason it defaults to privately sharing, which isn't really sharing, right?

Anyway, here's my latest blog: 
You know it's bad when the intellect of a junior in high school is intimidating to you. That's how I felt during a recent shoot for the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts. Heck,...

Some sessions are just smoother than others. The trick is to not get upset by the bumps in the road. Linley's senior session took some patience. Not because of her; she was great. Anything we sugge...

Story
Tagline
Being tall and bald, I'm easy to spot in a crowd.
Introduction
I'm a lover of coffee. Not the flavored stuff, mind you. But a good, rich roast made in a press or pour over cone, not something that's belched from a single-serving machine.

I love motorcycles. And cars. And airplanes. Things with motors that move people. I just wish I could fix them.

I have an awesome family, with a beautiful wife and two great daughters. I'm not wealthy, but I have a pretty rich life.

I have started a photography business in central Arkansas. I would love to take your portrait and talk about stuff you find interesting.
