Las Vegas!

Post Christmas Monday morning greetings to one and all!!!

I hope that you had a very Merry Christmas yesterday and Santa brought you a present or two!!!!

I was in Las Vegas this past week and one of the buildings that I’ve wanted to shoot for the last couple of visits is the “Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health“! It’s one of those buildings like the Denver Art Museum that is done in Stainless Steel and is very interesting. Unlike the Denver Art Museum which is very angular and has a lot of straight lines, the CCLRCFBH has a lot of curves and rolling shapes. The building definitely stands out and it’s hard to not take notice of it!!!

Here’s a few of my snaps of CCLRCFBH!

Thanks always for taking the time to check out my work and a week from today it’s going to be 2012! Wow!!!

My 10 best from 2011!!!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all my friends around the globe!!!!!

Today is my last working day for 2011 and that’s a pretty good feeling!!!! I’ve got a couple of gigs to get taken care of today and then on Tuesday it’s time to get on the plane and fly out West to enjoy some of that wonderful warmer weather then we’ve got here in Peoria!!!! I’m really glad to be putting the wraps on this year because to be honest, it was another tough year! This makes three down years in a row and with the US and World economies struggling to get better, it’s going to be tough going forward into next year! I always remain optimistic that this next year will be the year that things start to turn around and we’ll all just have to see where things go!

Despite having a down year business wise, I was still very fortunate to have some great opportunities for some wonderful shoots!!!! I was able to travel a bit and that’s always something that I really like to do and am glad when I get to go some where new!!!! Outside of a number of shoots that I did here in Illinois, I also had gigs in Texas, Las Vegas, Seattle, Brazil, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Louisiana! Not bad for an off year!!!!

I’ve put together a pdf with my ten best business shots from 2011! You’ll see that there was a wide array of different things and subjects and that’s what I really like is the variety of clients that I’m able to do work for!!!!

It’s time to get busy, there’s lots to do today!!! If you’re traveling next weekend for Christmas and the holiday season, make a it a safe one!!!! I’ll have photos from out west the next couple of weeks and am looking forward to that!!!! We’ll be back to Peoria after New Years and ready to rock in 2012!!!!!!!! Thanks again for checking out my work!!!!!

100,000 hits!

Monday morning greetings from Jackson, Mississippi!

I’m going to hit a milestone today on my Flickr photography site! My photos will have been viewed 100,000 times and that’s pretty darn good! I have limited space on my web page, but on Flickr I have unlimited space and at the moment I have 2423 photos on there! It’s nice because I’m able to have different categories of photos, so pretty much most areas of photography are covered, from travel to food to farming to Peoria, there’s a bunch of work here!!!!

I’m adding a link for the different sets and if you click on this link, you can check out lots and lots of my photos!

I’ve also got the newest addition to the Flickr site as well and it’s one of my nature photos from White Sands National Monument from a couple of weeks ago at Thanksgiving!

It’s time for me to get busy, so I hope that you have a wonderful week and thanks again for checking out all my work!!!

El Paso, Texas at sundown!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all my friends around the globe!!!!

I was able to do a little time lapse photography in El Paso, Texas when I was down that way visiting my folks this past Thanksgiving week! I found the perfect spot to shoot this from on the hill that over looks the city and in the background you can also see Ciudad Juarez, Mexico (not one of the safest cities in the world right now).

I’ve got a great time lapse video showing the transformation of the city from day to night that you can check out on Youtube.

It’s time to get busy, so I hope that you have a wonderful week and thanks for checking out my work!!!!
