My first visit to Alaska. It is a land that easily reminds us that our creator is the original artist. I took over 900 images during the week. Ansel Adams said, “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” With that in mind, I culled through to find the 5 photos that were significant to me.
My wife and I took a trip of a lifetime through New England by car. Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine have some of the most beautiful sites the United States has to offer. Here are some of my favorite images from our trip.
What a momentous day! I was blessed to be present at the dedication of The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Surrounded by friends and great Americans, and of course, all five living US Presidents. It’s a day that I’ll always remember. Enjoy some of the behind-the-scenes shots I took of the big event.
Had a lot of fun shooting senior portraits of my cousin, Charles Oakes. Charles is a great young man with a bright future ahead of him. He’s a tremendous musician and even does some modeling for Hollister. So it was natural that he’d want to knock out some fun music-themed shots. Lots of different lighting configurations and looks. Charles really wanted to achieve a blend of Elvis Presley and David Beckham portraits and I think we got pretty close.
This has been a great month so far for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (of which I’m the C.O.O). As you probably know, October is breast cancer awareness month. The NASCAR community has been very supportive of our cause this October. I’m going to post a batch of photos from Talladega Super Speedway this week. They painted their logo on their infield and included us in their all their festivities. This set of images is from the festivities at Charlotte Motor Speedway this past weekend. There were three teams that raced in support of NBCF. Danica Patrick and the Go Daddy team fielded a pink car as did Reynolds Wrap and our good friends at Randy Hill Racing. Here are some of my photos from the day of hanging out in the garages, pits, and everywhere in between. A big thanks to everyone who supported NBCF this weekend!
