There are few places where you can photograph such a variety as at your local zoo, and I am a regular at the Montgomery Zoo. Whether I am shooting animals, people or the facilities at the zoo — there is always a shot to be had, and many of the shots I take are usable by [...]
This old and abandoned train station is located in the industrial section of downtown Montgomery. It’s currently fenced off and unavailable to the public, but I’ve heard plans to restore the structure. I’ll check into it and get back with you here, but for now enjoy the photos. Please take a moment to look over [...]
I am fortunate enough to know a few people who live on both Lake Jordan and Lake Martin — this collection of shots come from Lake Jordan, Alabama and were taken back in July of this year. Special thanks to Sherry and Jim for allowing me the opportunity to experience this photo exploration and capture [...]
I have a lot in common with my mother — I talk too much; I’m overly curious and I think cemeteries are cool. There are many other attributes that I share with my mom, but for this post the cemetery thing is most relevant. Oakview Cemetery in Lowndesboro, AL is an older cemetery with many of its headstones and [...]
If you stand on the Edmund Pettus Bridge and look down river, you will see a railroad bridge — below are several shots of the rail bridge mentioned. This bridge is still in use, and is quite impressive when viewed up close. Nothing beats a good photo exploration.
Selma, Alabama is a historical River Region community with an abundance of art and civic culture, as well as, future growth potential to offer visitors and investors. As a local photographer that works closely with regional magazines, the chamber of commerce and small businesses around the River Region — it is important that I maintain a diverse portfolio [...]
Montgomery has many old and abandoned buildings, some in better condition than others. This building is located on the North side of downtown and although I have yet to get the full history on the building… I do have several images that you might find interesting. When I get the historical info, I’ll post it [...]
I’ve yet to do the research on this location, but here are a few shots from the old and abandoned Dallas Compress in Selma, AL. More information and photos to come later…
I have the cutest family and nothing gives me more pleasure than showing them off to anyone and everyone that will provide me audience. That said, I rarely take the time to use my photography with my own family — and my wife often reminds me of this fact. So! The other day we took [...]
This morning when it was still only 90°F (heat index of 106) – My niece and I went walking along the railroad tracks and popped off a few rounds. Here are some of those shots…
Occasionally I like to take a break from my regular work and… “play”. Such is the case with this quick visit to the Montgomery Zoo on a hot Summer afternoon. Enjoy this small collection of photos from my play time.
This afternoon my wife came to me and said that our 3-year-old daughter was given a homework assignment that required her to have a recent family photo. Obviously, the one that we had lying around the house was not sufficient so we pulled together a quick and dirty photo shoot on the railroad tracks behind the house. [...]
A collection of several biker photos I snapped a few years back, retouched for fun. The originals were shot as jpeg with an old Canon Rebel 6.1 mp—so it was interesting to see what kind of gritty detail I could pull out of them. I’m not a huge fan of Photoshop effects or over-manipulations, but [...]
This isn’t by far the largest stitch job I’ve done, but it is the largest stitch I’ve attempted with my subject in motion. For those of you who have not experimented with panoramic compositions and photo stitching through Adobe Photoshop need to give it a try. To be honest, I don’t remember how many RAW [...]
A cityscape without people makes any city seem like a ghost town—regardless of how interesting the town may actually be. Recently I’ve been doing a lot of work for the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau and The Official Montgomery & River Region Visitor Guide. A large portion of this work is [...]
Today I decided that since my daughter was home from daycare, I’d include her in my afternoon walk. Every afternoon (that I can) I take a walk to clear my mind, stretch the legs and recharge the inspiration tank. What better way to spend time with my little girl are share my work experience. Kaylee [...]
Photo exploration and on-location shoots are two of my favorite assignments, and shooting at the bar is always rewarding. After all, which would you rather do? Spend Thursday afternoon in front of your computer for 12 hours straight, or spend a few hours at the local pub trying to shoot that drink just right? But [...]
As it warms up and many of us will start to increase the frequency of our photo explorations—let me suggest your local Zoo as one of the perfect locations to explore your photography in 2011. Why the Zoo? There are many reasons that the Zoo is one of the perfect locations for a photo exploration—here [...]
The old and abandoned Grove Court Apartments have quite the history, and yet they lay lifeless—open to the elements and in danger of becoming just a note in someones lost journal. If your interested in the details surrounding these apartments than read Ben’s comments on my previous post, “Abandoned Apartment Complex“. For additional images, view [...]
Snapped this photo of Brad’s new car with my old trusty Samsung flip-phone back before the iPhone revolutionized cellphone photography.
