Last weekend I was contracted by Ultra Race Photos to shoot the Santa Hustle 5K Race at Veteran’s Park in Milwaukee. At first I had misgivings about this assignment, as the weather has been really cold, and this park is known as the windiest place in the city of Milwaukee. In fact they hold a kite festival at this park twice a year for that reason.Read More
The Ugly Sweater Run 5K Race was the second race I shot this weekend. This event also took place in Veteran’s Park in Milwaukee. A cold, cold, windy day. I am glad this one only took a couple of hours. Much smaller turnout than yesterday’s race. I am sure the weather had a role in that. Grateful for the work, however.Read More

Chilly weather, running in the park, people drinking beer. What could go wrong?
Early this November I was contracted to shoot the Milwaukee Beer run held at Estabrook Park in Shorewood, Wisconsin.Read More
I recently sold one of my old camera lenses on Craigslist. I shot this like I would any other product, and the images really helped seal the deal. The lens sold three days after I posted these images.Read More
Friends, I just wanted to take a moment to talk about how pleased I am using the Square Card Reader. It has made sales a whole lot faster and easier. Earlier this year I bought my first smart phone specifically so I could start taking credit card payments at the school and when I was out painting, using my phone.
What I didn’t realize was that I would also be able to set up an online register and also take orders over the phone. The service is quick, the payments are deposited directly into my bank account within 1-3 days, usually the next day. That saves so much time.
The fees are about what I was paying on Paypal, but the interface is so much faster, and I don’t have to set up a special web page for a given item. When a student or patron makes a purchase, I can swipe their card, allow them to use a stylus to sign the screen, and then they can enter their email address to get a receipt emailed to them. I can also set up invoices and my register is now set up with all the things I usually sell. Just click on the item to add it to the cart. The records Square offers also make it easier to track sales.
Square is now offering a special deal for those who sign up, if you use this link: http://squareup.com/i/C77CC571 you will get $1000 of sales processed without fees. (That’s a savings of more than $27).Read More
