Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my website. I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to look around and enjoy my work! I’ve recently launched this new website, and this post explains a little about it. (Also, just know the site is a work in progress.)
Since I do several types of photography, I wanted my homepage to reflect that. My previous website did not illustrate that right on the homepage. So, right up front, I want visitors to know about the variety of work I do. As you can see, the homepage now shows my main types of photography.
The first thing any visitor sees is landscape photography. That is my number one passion. I love getting outside and capturing landscape and fine art images. There is so much amazing beauty that God has created, and I love to show it and display his glory (Psalm 19:1-3). I have been blessed to have done photography all around the United States, so please take time to enjoy the photography shown there. Also, you will find a link to my store, where you can order everything from framed prints to shower curtains and face masks (COVID-19 was a thing when I was writing this. Hopefully, there will be a day that we will mostly forget about COVID-19 and the need for face masks). If you would like to order something from my store, contact me directly, and I will provide you with a discount coupon that you can use when ordering. Really, shoot me an email to receive a coupon.
Next on my homepage, I display event photography. What types of events will I photograph? I have done ground breaking ceremonies, open houses, employee celebrations, community events and many others. While COVID-19 has put a HUGE dent in this type of photography, I look forward to the day large events are a thing again, and I get to photograph them. If you are looking for a photographer for your event, let’s talk.
Corporate photography is next. What does this include? This is any type of photography your business may use. I have done photography for businesses that has been used in company promotional materials, websites, annual reports, wall displays and more. I enjoy doing corporate work because we are usually trying to tell a story or solve a problem for a business. I will work with any business to help brainstorm about the types of images that can meet your needs.
Next on the front page of my website is editorial photography. This is doing photography for a particular publication or website that will be part of a story they are telling. Editorial photography allows for creativity and storytelling in images. The creative challenge comes from working to tell a story well, with images that are interesting and creative. Every situation presents its own challenges and it is fun to try to solve the problems encountered while creating pictures that have impact. Of course, it is also fun to see my work in the finished publications and websites.
Last on my homepage, I have placed senior photography. This is not because I rank senior photos last. Not at all. I love doing senior photography, and have done many portraits of high school graduates from Northfield, Cannon Falls, Farmington, Lakeville, Apple Valley and more. Senior photography is another way to explore my creativity and provide unique images for local high school graduates. I have photographed gazillions* of seniors over the years. Many years ago (I’m talking way back in the days of FILM!), I photographed high school students mostly in the studio. Today, I do all of my senior photography outside. Every location, lighting situation and senior makes the experience unique. I’m happy so many families over the years have entrusted me to capture their students’ milestone portraits for them. It is really a joy, and I love overwhelming my seniors with a multitude of excellent portraits.
Also on my new website at the top menu, you will find a link to my blog. (That’s what you are reading now.) You can also find information about me, and you will see a link to my store. Please take time to visit the store. No pressure, just look around and see the many different types of products you can purchase with my images on them. (It is really amazing what is offered.) Also, if you want to purchase something, shoot me an email and I will give you a one-time code that will provide a discount to say thanks for your first purchase.
Thank you for allowing me to give you a brief description of my updated website. I’m so glad you stopped by to visit my new website. Let me know if you have any thoughts or comments on it. I’d love to hear them – both kudos and critique – really.
*Not the actual number of seniors; this just means I’ve taken a lot during my career. 🙂
