Well, usually, I try to keep the Mother Road Revisited stuff, and even my wedding photography separate from my personal blog or website. But, this particular story kind of applies to all the avenues of my life. Good friends of mine recently got married, and they asked me to photograph their wedding. Not only was their wedding on Route 66 (Gallup, NM), but it also was more like a photo shoot that happened to include a wedding. We did a whole 3-4 hour photo shoot the day before the wedding, and then still had more photos to make on the day of the wedding. It was the most prop based wedding I have ever photographed. And I had a blast. We ended up photographing the best man as a Snidley Whiplash character, kidnapping the bride and the groom saving the day. Anyway, enough talking about the photos. Why not take a look?

So,  those are a sampling of photos we took the day before the wedding. Here is a sampling of images we made the day of the wedding.

Goodness. I have been meaning to update for weeks. So, this update will be a bulk of the things I have be up to over the last few months, and a preview of what I’m doing in the future weeks. First of all, I am traveling to Palm Springs, CA for a photo conference this Sunday. This will be the third time I have attended, and I am pumped. Second, I have been traveling all over the midwest in the last few weeks. I was in Dallas shooting pictures of Jesse:

Jesse’s a fun model, and I enjoy shooting with him, especially in Deep Ellum. I have also been working with gum bi-chromate, and that’s been quite the adventure. Here are a few successes and…and a few failures. but I’m learning. That’s for sure.

This will be a full color when I have it all figured out.

I think the last two have some paper issues, but I’m working them out, for sure. And finally! Last week my dad and I traveled up to Louisville, KY to pick up a ’64 Shasta. It isn’t perfect, but it’s slowly working in that direction. It was an adventure that lasted 3 days and 36 hours of driving. Dad and I had a great time, but it was quite the tiring trip. Anyway, here’s a photo of the Shasta:

Phew. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. I’m sure I’ll post another entry when I get back from Palm Springs, but until then, thanks for reading!

Hello all,

I am getting ready to head out to California for the Palm Springs Photo Festival, and I wanted to be able to show some of my work in a really compact, efficient way. A friend of mine from PSPF last year showed me MagCloud.com, so I tried it out for my “The Mother Road: Revisited” Project from last semester.

And I’m excited to say the magazines came in! I ordered 11 to give away at the conference to gallery owners, so we’ll see how they work out, but if you all are interested in seeing it in a digital form, downloading a free PDF or ordering the magazine itself, you can check it out here.

The Magazine is Perfect Bound, so I was able to add text to the spine.

Anyway, don’t forget to check out the magazine digitally! Just click “preview” on the bottom right. Also I’ll be posting about the printmaking conference in St. Louis I went to last week. Get excited to hear about woodcuts with power tools and Swoon!

Well, it’s that time of year. Finals week. Stress is in the air, and people are frantically running about hoping to get that last bit of work done before they have to turn everything in. The great thing about this University is we have a black week….I’ve never gone to a university that did that before, so we’ll see if I get anymore done than usual.

Anyway, I turned in my Rt. 66 project, and hung it up in my studio. I also did a transfer technique to put the type directly on the wall. I will blog a how-to about it in awhile.

Also, there will be a gallery show with my photos and another grad students photos in the Spring sometime. I’ll keep you posted, but be sure to come by and see the photos in real life.

This is the full set.

This is the full set.

Anyway, that’s it. If you’re in Tulsa, I’ll have it hung in my studio for awhile, just give me a call.
