I shot this image quite a while ago after I had dream about it . I really love this image because it captures some of what He did for us.  It is  also hard to relate to a straight on image of Jesus because he never looks like we think He did. I think Mel Gibson’s movie ” The Passion of the Christ ” really brought it home for me.

MPPA Convention 2011

View Previous post————————————————————————————————————————- View Next

Just got back from our main MPPA convention in Missoula. We had a bunch of the best speakers in the country and a bunch of fun too! I am including my images from the competition. My scores put me in the top 10 Montana photographers again which I am thankful for, but  I have to admit I would like to get rid of that 0 next year :). I also won a bunch of great stuff in the raffles too. Roger Mathis and I worked together on the trade show part of the convention and we are going to make it one of the best in the west!!! Thanks Roger! Congratulations to all my fellow photographers who did so well this year, you all rocked it! :)

This 1st image was my favorite. I titled it ” Original Spell Check”

 

 

This image ” Sisters” won 2nd place in the Group Category

 

This image is one of my senior s from last year ” Chloe”

 

Another senior from last year ” Ballerina”

 

This one is just for fun I titled it ” Fannaquin”  I think I maybe should have titled it ” Fannyquin ” :)

Cozumel 2011 Stills

We just got home from a family scuba diving vacation in Cozumel Mexico! It was soo beautiful there and I absolutely love the people. Dan was able to join us and Nate got his PADI diving certificate. We stayed at a place called the “Fiesta Americana” because it is set up well for divers. They have a pier that the diving boats pick you up and drop you off at so you don’t have to drive into town. It was the 1st time we have ever been to an all inclusive resort where you can eat and drink all you want! :) I’m not a big drinker( I only drink when I’m alone or with someone :) love that old joke…..) Anyway, these images are just from a little point and shoot that I have an underwater housing for so I can do stills and video with. I didn’t want to take my higher end equipment and worry about it the whole time. We really had a wonderful family time there. I would love to live there in the winters. We rented a dune buggy and drove it around the island one day and another day we rented these scooters and also went around island. It was so much fun. These video clips are really short. I just wanted to show a bit of what it was like underwater. I do not in anyway claim to be a videographer especially underwater. In fact after shooting underwater I have the greatest respect for those guys. Dan has been certified PADI for quite a few years now and Lisa and I got ours about 5 years ago. If any of you are considering it, I say go for it!!! It really opened up new worlds for us. Enjoy the images and please leave some comments on the Facebook instead of  on here.

BTW, The reason I put my studio name on everything is because there are people out there who steal images. Several of my professional friends have had their images stolen.

Film Assignment

I haven’t posted in awhile because we have been on vacation and I am getting ready for the upcoming MPPA convention in Missoula. Anyway, recently myself, Roger Mathis, and Chris Rebo got together to have coffee and talk photography. Well those two came up with the brilliant idea that we should each shoot a roll of film and see what we get. well I haven’t shot a roll of film for probably close to over 5 years now!!! In fact I only had 1 film camera left and it was an old Nikon that belonged to another local photographer that I had bought at an auction a few years ago and had never used. A couple of days before we decided to do this I had put the camera and some old lenses up for auction on Ebay so they were scheduled to sell almost immediately. To make a long story short I had 1 day to get the film and shoot it and put camera in the mail to winning bidder. The camera didn’t have a battery in it either so I just by guessed and by gollyed exposure ( using sunny 16 rule). I met this 1st guy alongside road down by Three Forks and the other ones were done down at God’s Love. I really enjoyed photographing these guys and visiting with them. If you have any comments please leave them on the Facebook page instead of on blog. Thanks!!!
