Here's a photo gallery of images I shot on a trip to DC with 94 WWII vets from MT, who went on the honor Flight to visit the war memorials. Great trip.

I've assisted on the light painting of 20 cars for a book, using continuous duty lights in softboxes and pan reflectors, 30 second exposures. Maybe 10-20 separate images composited for each final image. The results are much better than this, more interesting, very unique.

Bragging rights
One great daughter, love being a dad. Have made a few good snaps in my day, and hope for more. I'd like to think I am a good husband, father, and friend.
