Kate and Brian: Green Bay Engagement Photos

Last week I had the privilege to shoot engagement photos for Kate and Brian. They are super cute, and totally in love, it was really wonderful to see. Their wedding is the same weekend that my wife and I got married, so it's gonna be a fun time to shoot their wedding in May. Enjoy the photos!









Kate Clark and Brian Furst



Thanks for a great photo shoot guys! Congratulations!

Week 7: Project 365

Here's week 7 of my project 365. Lots of fun stuff happened this week! Check it out, and check back soon, for some really awesome engagement photos!


I was given a feature shot with Dr. Gallistel at Bellin children's clinic in Green Bay for my internship. Fun shoot, she was really great to work with!


Kate and Brian, engagement photos. Super awesome couple! I'll be posting the rest later this week


At Coldstone Creamery.


New art I'm working with. Monsters in suitcases biting people's heads off.


Like I said...


I attended a workshop this past sunday with the amazing
David Jackson! We did some model shooting, and this is the best one I shot.


My copper plates for the prints I will be working on (and posting pictures of).

The Lightbody's

I've known Eric and Julie for quite a while now, and it was a real pleasure to take their family portraits! Noah and Harmony are so cute, although Noah really doesn't like to sit still. So it goes with children I guess. Thanks you guys!

Week 6

Here's week six of my project 365. It's a bit convoluted, but that's how my weeks are (= Enjoy, and check back tomorrow for the full set of Eric and Julie's family pics!

Phuture Phoenix is a program bringing loads of 5th graders to UWGB to learn about the importance of college.

First Lady (WI) Jessica Doyle with a group of the kids in our Lawton Gallery.

Eric, Julie and Harmony Lightbody. Check out tomorrow's post for more, and ones with their little boy Noah!

The Alumni Wine & Cheese dinner. Held annually at the campus golf course. This was a blast, and no, I don't know the story behind the mouse costume.

I participated in a photo scavenger hunt for Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. It was awesome, this is our photo on Breakup Bridge.

Project 365

I just decided to make a bit of an addendum to my project. I am not quitting, not giving up. I am, however, going to stop posting every day, and post once a week. It seems a little absurd to keep posting every day, I doubt people check my blog that much, plus it's a bit easier on me, especially since my computer doesn't get internet on campus where I am 90% of the time.

SO check back next monday, and get a whole slew of different pictures (= Woohoo!

Day 33: 365

More of my white seamless work today. I'm reading a lot of theory with this project, and I am still not sure where it's going, but I am starting to like it. This one is a bit more post-processed than I would normally do, but for my blog I thought what the heck. It's fun.

Day 32: 365

At my campus, I help to run an organization called Art Agency. We bring in visiting artists from time to time as well as do community art activities. This is the third year in a row that we have brought in Drive By Press
They tour with a huge collection of prints, and print on t-shirts out of their van (Now a Honda Element) with a press. It's awesome, here's Ryan O'Malley rocking a mezzotint.

Day 31: 365

This is the camera I will be shooting with very shortly (= The one drawback is that I have 220 film and there is only a 120 back, so I may have to buy one on ebay to sell later (borrowing the camera). I found one for only 30 bucks though so we'll see. She's a beaut!

I also found this wonderful online magazine today. Check out their blog!

Day 29: 365

I finally got some film developed today. I then realized something....
I don't shoot nearly enough film. Coincidentally I started reading After Photography by Fred
Ritchin again. There's something different about film. Something wonderful. Here's the beginning of the editing process for my upcoming in-process critique.

Day 28: 365

My wife, Alicia needed an up-close headshot for an education bio. Here we go (= I put a green gel on a houselamp splashed against the curtains for a little color. Lit with 36" Westcott Umbrella camera right.

Day 27: 365

Still working with the trophies. Don't know where this is going yet, but that's kinda the point. I have some completely different stuff on film that I have to develop yet, and am getting my hands on a medium format soon... mmmmmm 220.

Day 25, 26: 365

A couple times a month our campus coffee shop, Common Grounds, hosts Jazz Jam. A get-together for musicians on campus to play jazz music. One of the continual participants is a professor Stefan Hall who also plays in several local groups. Fun times. I am gonna cheat and count these for two days, another rough week. No worries, I'll get back on track soon!
