Rain and High School Football

Rainy Peoria Monday morning greetings to all!

All this rain that we’re having in Central Illinois over the past few weeks is spanking me on a couple of farm shoots that we are trying to get in before the end of the year! Other then the ducks, I can’t think of anyone else that’s too happy about this!

I was over in Washington, Illinois on Saturday morning shooting some freshman high school football and it was fun to see the kids out there slopping around in all the mud! I’m sure the moms were going to love washing these uniforms!!!!

Here’s a quick snap of Washington’s Austin Reel (No. 31) scoring a touchdown!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and try to have a dry week!!!!!

Fall is in the air!

Sunny Peoria Monday morning greetings to all!

Yes, fall is indeed in the air in Peoria! It’s probably my favorite time of year and Sunday had to be the perfect day. Sun, blue skies and temps in the mid 50′s! Nice! I was out at Detweiller Park and was able to capture a little of the color. The leaves are starting to turn and should be at peak in the next couple of weeks, so hopefully we’ll get another nice day like Sunday!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and have a great week!!!!

Harvesting time!

Cloudy Peoria Monday morning greetings to all,

I was over in Emmetsburg, Iowa last week shooting some harvesting and despite some bad weather, we were still able to get a few shots of the guys doing their thing. I asked one on the farmers why we were having to unload corn from the combine every two passes of the field and with a big smile he said, “That’s what happens when you getting 200 bushel acres!” For non-farmers like you and I, 200 bushel corn is very good and makes a farmer very happy (and profitable)!

Here’s a quick snap from last week and you can see that everything came together for this shot!

Have a great week and thanks as always for checking out my work!

Fun with UTV’s!

Sunny Peoria Monday morning greetings to all,

I had one of those shoots last week that was a blast! Sure we busted our butts and worked a lot of hours, but we had a fun shoot! I was up in Wisconsin shooting Utility Vehicles (UTV for short) and we had these everywhere from farming applications to hunting to factories. For this shot that I’m sending today, I told our model to drive like a “bat of of hell” and she did! I wanted to give a sensation of speed and motion to the shot and I think that we got what we were after!

Let’s all have a great week and thanks as always for checking out my work!
