These pictures are just over a year old, but I haven't really shared them and thought now might be as good a time as any. My wife, Christina, and I spent a few weeks in Europe -mostly Italy with a short stop in Lisbon and a tiny day trip to Switzerland- for our "babymoon" last year. I didn't spend a huge amount of time taking pictures; my goal was to remember the trip not create The Definitive Pictures of Europe, but I like what I got.I didn't dig into them immediately, then our little fella came along and now a year later... here they are!Read More
I haven't photographed a county fair in four years, since I worked at my last newspaper. I always enjoy the earnestness of the fair, with the FFA and 4-Hers, and the way it turns into something different as the sun sets. When 417 Magazine asked me to shoot the Ozark Empire Fair, I shook off the rust and tapped into my previous experience while trying to give it a fresh look - at least for me.
I photographed Pria, a therapy dog at Mercy Rehabilitation Hospital, in action for 417 Magazine.

Cellar + Plate is a really great wine and tapas bar in Springfield, Mo.
Trailiner, a refrigerated trucking company based in Springfield, Mo., is a multi-generation business. I photographed the founder and CEO, H.E. “Spook” Whitener, and his granddaughter, Amber Edmondson, the company's president, for Biz 417.

I photographed stainless steel tanks at Chemline Inc. in St. Louis, Mo. for the Paul Mueller Company. Mueller tanks are used around the world in various industrial and agricultural settings.
Bryan Bevel has opened The Pitch Pizza and Pub in Springfield. I shot this for Feast when he was still remodeling his restaurant, so we took the photos at Fellers Food Service Equipment, which was kind enough to let us use their kitchen. For the shoot, Bevel made one of his pizza creations, the Philly.
I made a series of portraits for Biz 417's Excellence in Technology Awards feature in the March/April edition of the magazine. All of the subjects were easy to work with and interesting to talk to. I especially liked getting to work with the guys at Eagle Speak, who I see around all over the place and photographed at events, but hadn't spent any real time getting to know them.
