progress to shelley night

just shelley or...

I'm hoping this is the final of this image. I would really appreciate some feedback. If there is anything at all you have to say please say it so I can iron out this pic.
I am accepting any and all criticism. Please be honest and harsh!
This is a better look at the creature.

If you haven't been to yet you should check it out. Really inexpensive business cards, and you can get 100 cards, each with a different image if you want to. Everyone in LA seems to have the tiny cards. Good quality stuff, check it out!
I just posted most of my new scans here from my senior project. I would appreciate any input or critique

Photo checkout blog

In case you were interested in the random things I find in the mornings, courtesy of our night and weekend checkout workers (mostly Keegan).

Nashville Airport

These two checked out the exhibit on their own.
I took this in the Nashville airport on Monday. Everyone passed right by the photo exhibit until I went over to look at the exhibit myself. As soon as I did that, I had about 8 people standing around me, also looking up at the exhibit. It made me want to go stare at other stuff on the wall to see if I could get people to stop and see what was so interesting. :)

Anybody interested in making a Header image for our blog? I made this one real quick but it doesn't say much about our program as a whole... SO I encourage you guys to make some and we can keep switching them out.

फेअर बेफोरे

Camden why are all my titles in Arabic?! I still can't fix it. Anyhoo, Monday night I had the opportunity to photograph Fear Before (formerly Fear Before the March of Flames) for their new album. Not sure if they are going to use these, but it would be pretty huge and great if they did. They will be playing in Bozeman at the Sub on the 27th so you should all check out their show with I am the Ocean, Exotic Animal Petting Zoo, and This Word is Weapon. But remember your earplugs because it will be brutal. I'll be there too! They put on a pretty incredible live show, which I've seen three times this week. These are just my three favorites from the shoot. More in my blog

Richard Renaldi Lecture!

A lecture by Richard Renaldi: - Monday October 20th at 11:00 am in the SUB ballroom C... free admission and open to the public.

Food Bank Volunteer

This is Dan, a volunteer at the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. He originally started volunteering there to fulfill community service requirements for a DUI. He fulfilled those requirements within a month, and that was over a year ago. He says he continues to volunteer because he likes helping others. He also feels like he been given an undeserved second chance to live a productive life and as a result, he wants to show his gratitude by giving back to others. I was very happy to give him these photographs so he can share them with his children who don't live with him. Which image do you think is the most successful as an environmental portrait?


I'm working on a project that involves photographing volunteers from different organizations around Bozeman. I photographed these women at the Senior Center. They volunteer for the RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) by making "hand crafts" to sell at the Farmer's Market. The profits are donated and are used for various causes. I wasn't sure which photo of the second woman is better. I think I like the one where she's not looking at the camera. What do you think? Any other comments?

A few more

beginning for the plot

Shelley finds a shell, hoping this one will tell her where to go.

Images are out of sequence.  I appologize for any confusion this may inflict.

Spotted on the Horizon

Shelley looks towards the horizon and spots the shell which may lead her to the ocean.
(in progress)
Any suggestions before I place Shelley in the image and finish the horizon?

Pro Photo Organizations/Memberships

I am thinking about joining a professional photo organization since we can get a pretty major discount as a student. However, it seems that there are so many pro photo organizations out there to choose from. Are any of you a member of any specific group (ASMP, PPA, etc.)? What are the benefits of your membership? It seems that many organizations have a lot of information on their websites that you can get without being a member. Thanks!
Here's another of Eli. I wasn't really a fan of her makeup and dress for this part, but I like my camera haha!

I think I'm still working on this image from today. The model, Eli, had an amazing collection of Betsey Johnson dresses. It was 7 hours of shooting punctuated by clothing and hair changes. Insane. I'm soooo tired. Oh and Megan, I lied. I thought she was an American, but she's Icelandic.

So I met Chris Anthony... and I didn't throw up on him! It was a successful day. I wrote about it in my blog


Hey everyone. Here is a sample of some new work. I'm still figuring things out. Minneapolis is phenomenal.

New stuff on the ol' website

F-11 and Costco Color Profiles

If you've been wanting to print at Costco or F-11 for your assignments and avoid using the over-worked inkjet printers in the lab, there's a database available that gives the printer information and downloadable color profiles for Costco and F-11. They also have color profiles and printer information for all 50 states.

Montana Digital Photo Lab Profiles

FYI, most professionals, unless making massively wide prints, outsource their printing to places like White House CC, Miller's, Mpix, etc., and avoid inkjet prints altogether.


James Nachtway's new work for the Extreme Drug Resistant Tuberculosis Organization is really powerful. I suggest you take a gander.
