These images were taken as reference photos for a commissioned portrait painting, which was to be gift for their Mom. Initially we weren’t sure if we were going to go with a single painting of both girls, or one painting of each girl, so we took a variety of high and low key shots. You can see the final painting, and read about how it was created here.
This December I was hired to do some event photography for the Dead Man’s Carnival New Year’s Eve celebration that took place at the Hot Water/Wherehouse bar in Milwaukee. This group puts on some of my favorite events to photograph, combining a steampunk/carnival type of atmosphere with games, side shows, music, acrobats, burlesque dancers, and other types of acts from all over the Midwest and other parts of the country. Some of these are truly amazing performers. Quite a way to bring in the new year.

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

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
