As usual, it doesn’t seem as though it’s been as long as it has been since I last wrote here. Fall has become pretty busy, which I both anticipated and looked forward to. Several trips to Tennessee as well as Kentucky, and I even had my first, private photo workshop at the KY farm. It was a BLAST! I’m really looking forward to doing this again as well as more frequently. Immediately after that weekend, A friend who happens to own Game Plan Gear came by to work on some images for his 2013 catalog. One of the images below is from that shoot, but the best shots were for the cover of his piece and are not yet ready to be made public. I gotta tell ya, I love the shots we did for this and I’m chomping at the bit for everyone to see them. I really think they are some of my best to date!
The last couple of days I have been in Michigan which is so beautiful at this time of year, shooting hunting dogs for a client. My friend Mike van Tubergen was only too kind to volunteer his German Shorthair and his home for the shoot. His dog, Indy, has got to be the best looking dog I have ever seen. He is a monster of an animal! We spent an afternoon and a morning shooting with Mike and Indy and got plenty of cool pix. Several more are below. Another talent that Indy has, being the total athlete he is, is his ability to literally fly! WIth a very short runway, this dog could launch himself practically to the middle of the pond.
Today I’m doing a quick shoot for a client of a female archer and preparing for an outdoor family portrait session a couple hours from home. I’m really looking forward to seeing some of my family and spending a bit of downtime with them. Monday morning it’s back on the road to Nashville for a shoot on Tuesday for an upcoming country singer. The set-up for this shoot is going to be awesome, utilizing trucks, creeks, and log barns, it’s going to be a hoot! I’ll get some pix from it posted as soon as I can.
