For anyone who was at the Youth Art Show Reception on March 12th, we've uploaded all of the pictures taken, including several of winners with their works, to my online proofing site. You can log on and buy prints of these images and all proceeds will go directly to the LAA. We're going to try to do this for all of our receptions this year and we're going to try to get pictures especially of any youth that show up for the parents to buy, so if this is a service that interests you make sure you show up for the receptions and if you want a picture or two just grab the photographer and tell them what you would like.

It feels like August here with all of the seniors I've been doing. It's been hard work finding new locations to use in the tail end of winter, everything is starting to wake up, but there is no color anywhere, so we've been forced to do a lot more of the industrial types of shots. Which so far has not failed to delight. Industrial shots are always real crowd pleasers. Cody and I had a lot of fun out on the railroad bridge, and even though this is fast becoming my most requested portrait location, we got some really unique shots, and this selective color with the saxophone really turned out cool. We got some neat shots back at the studio as well and we got his sax back out and even turned on the smoke machine. Unfortunately his younger brother was in charge of the smoke and he went crazy with it, forcing us to evacuate the building soon after starting. We got a couple of good shots though before the fire alarms went off, so as far as I'm concerned it was a huge success. Luckily none of my neighbors called the fire department when they saw the smoke billowing out of my front door.

When we first started laying out Joel's senior portraits he described lots of grungy types of locations, and I had just found this really excellent spot in down town Logan with a really great building with 3 sides that each have something cool to offer. So we met at my studio this weekend and drove down to the building together only to find out, it was demolished! There was nothing left but a large patch of fresh gravel. Of course, we were not discouraged, it's not like there is a shortage of decrepit buildings in Logansport. We did an about face and did some pictures across the alley, the lighting was perfect and we got some really amazing shots. Then we went to the good ole rail road bridge on river road only to find a train idling on the tracks. We were a little nervous it would kick into gear at any point, so we stayed close to the edge, got a couple of shots, then got the heck out of dodge. Luckily there were no surprises at the studio, the building was still there, and there were no trains ready to disrupt our shoot. Joel had so many good ones, it's going to be really hard for him to choose, but I think this studio shot of him is my favorite, it's a really natural capture, I think it turned out really great.

We had a really good photo shoot last night for these little guys. We got tons of great shots for each of them. I uploaded my favorite of each into my gallery. Things have been slow this year up till now, but I've got a very very busy March laid out already. I've got a handful of last minute seniors as well. If you're needing any kind of portraits I'd call soon, it looks like this year is going to be a busy one.
