Monday morning greetings to one and all!

Well we’ve got another busy week on tap coming up and that’s always a very good thing! It’s nice to look in the calendar and see things getting booked up for the week to come! When things are slow, I’ll look at the calendar and there’s not much or nothing booked and that’s never a good sign! When things are busy like they have been, you’ll look at the calendar and hope that there is some time available for clients and that you can get everyone worked in!

Jan and I are starting a big charity project for Peoria Rescue Ministries and it should be a good one. We’ll be shooting a full day of video on Thursday at the different locations that PRM has here in Central Illinois and then putting a video together in the coming weeks. We started this past Friday night in downtown Peoria and for those that have been by the SW Adams St. PRM location, you’ve seen the iconic “Jesus Saves” sign. They just had the sign refurbished recently and it looks great, so we made it down to shoot some video and stills at night to capture how good it looks. I was able to get some nice video that we can use in this big project and Jan shot a bunch of stills as well.

This week we are sharing Jan’s photo of the Peoria Rescue Ministries building along with their great “Jesus Saves” sign!

Thanks as always for taking the time to check out our weekly work and we hope that you have a great week to come!!!!

Now that’s living!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Well it was one of those weeks where it went from nothing to everything in the blink of an eye! Sometimes things are like that where you can be swamped with work and then nothing or in the case of this past week, it was the complete opposite. We had a couple of small gigs early in the week and then all at once we had a bunch of video editing projects that had some very short deadlines. Needless to say, the computer has been rocking and rolling these past four days and we’re pretty close to having things wrapped up on these video projects!

One of the gigs that we’ve been working on for the last few weeks was shooting some photos of College Place Uptown in Blooming, Il. CPU is located right next to Illinois State College and besides some retail shopping also includes student apartments for ISU students. Having never been there before, I really wasn’t sure what to expect of the place, but I was pleasantly surprised! If I was an ISU student, this would be the place that I’d like to live! Besides all the other amenities that they offer, they have three beautiful courtyards that were constructed by Bellas Landscaping. Now that’s living!

Here’s one of our photos of the courtyards at College Place Uptown.

Well it’s time to get rocking, so we hope that you’re going to have a great week to come!!!

Pekin Marigold Festival

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Well this past weekend sure had some great weather for us here in Central Illinois. On Saturday morning the rains rolled through and brought with it a nice cool front and lower humidities and that was a welcome change for us. I love it when it’s hot, but not so much when it comes to the high humidity that we get here in the Midwest! Oh sure there’s lots of places that are a heck of a lot worse when it comes to summer and humidity, but I’m glad that I visit those places and don’t live there!

You know that it’s getting to be the fall season when the Pekin Marigold Festival is held and they couldn’t have had better weather on Saturday afternoon. We were there to shoot some photos of our friends in the band, The Rave. The guys were back on the stage on Saturday for a set at the festival and as usual they kicked out the tunes! Lots of great music on a picture perfect day, so everyone there enjoyed the show!

We’ve got a few snaps of The Rave (Jeff, Jay, Greg and Aaron) and we’re sharing a few of those today!

We hope that you have a great week to come and thanks as always for taking the time to check out our work!

Out in the country!

Tuesday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Well for most of us, we’re back at work today after the Labor Day weekend and boy was it a nice weekend weather wise here in Central Illinois. We had a break from the rain and the hot and humid temperatures that have been seemingly with us for the entire summer! It was great to be able to turn off the air conditioner at the house for a few days and open up the windows and air out the place. Of course we’re right back to the hot and humid weather this week with the heat index back up to 100 today! At some point it’s going to cool back down, but not soon enough!

Jan and I were able to get out in the country for a nice little drive on Labor Day Monday and it was great to just check things out and shoot a few photos. Driving through farm country and seeing all the corn and soybeans and knowing that the farmers are going to get started with the harvest in the next couple of weeks will be great! It’s always fun to see them out there with the combines working the fields and bringing the crops in for the year! I’m sure at some point we’ll be getting out to shoot some of that as well!

Here’s a couple of our photos from out drive out in the country!

We hope that you have a great week to come and thanks as always for checking out our work!
