Been a while since I've posted here as the summer has kept me incredibly busy.  That being said, I have found time to do a little shooting for fun.  This is the amazing Amelia Gandara (Miss University of Louisville 2013) doing what she does best!

Taken in Louisville, Kentucky - spanning the 2nd Street Bridge!

One thing that I enjoy more about photography than perhaps any other thing is being able to document the lives of my family and friends.  I've been photographing our kids since they were little, and the kids of several other families as well.  This one however is closer to my heart than most as this young lady is carrying my second grandchild!  Can't wait to get started on those portraits!

I would love to have an aerial camera to film the gorgeous horse farms around my area and various school sports and events that my kids are in.  Plus there are a ton of awesome events in my city (Louisville, Kentucky) that I would love to be able to provide aerial views for!

Had the opportunity to do a portrait session of my friend and Patriot Guard Rider, Jeff.  He dedicates a lot of his time to the fallen soldiers of our country and rides year around... even in freezing temps!  The day we shot this it was below freezing, so needless to say, we didn't get a whole lot of shots in before wrapping up... due to my hands freezing and going numb, Jeff was fine. :)  It was incredibly windy out this day so I couldn't use any large softboxes or umbrellas, but as it worked out, bare strobes seemed to, in my eye, create the best look I was after any ways.  This was lit simply with two bare flashes, one for him and one for the bike, both at camera left.  I triggered both of those flashes with another on camera flash.  I did the black and white conversion in post.  Except for the freezing cold, this was a fun shoot!

Getting excited for the season finale of +Breaking Bad so I thought I'd do a little tribute self portrait. :)

Ha ha. Great job.  I've heard rumors that Walter might be coming back.  Remember the final episode truly didn't show an official death.  Maybe he'll be in "Better call Saul"?

Been a while since I've taken a portrait of our older son, so I thought I would use the opportunity to test out my new Thunder Gray background.  Have to say, its much easier getting a gray looking background when using an actual gray background. ;)

Man, the area in my little neck of the woods has been frightfully cold so far, so much to my chagrin, I had to break down and buy a pair of winter gloves.  For the record, I hate wearing gloves but the ones I bought are absolutely awesome so I thought I'd share my quick review of them.

Introduction
I'm a photographer from the Louisville, Kentucky area.  I've lived in Kentucky all of my life but have traveled around and seen some pretty cool things.

I've been fortunate enough to have a caring family, friends and a wonderful fiance' who shares my passion.

I also have a cat, a few fish and a cactus that attacks me every time I'm near it.
