New Book by Local Author

Local author and client, Catherine Oaks released her first book today on Lulu. Catherine asked us to do her portrait that is the cover for her book. Here is a brief description from the online publisher that is distributing the book.

This book is about life and love. It is also about the courage to dare to live without boundaries and to learn how to bounce back no matter what happens to you. Through events the author lived and some analysis of societal and cultural trends, you will be exposed to new perspectives that will help you turn the negative events you are facing into positive outcomes. From dealing with the harsh realities of divorce to learning about hormonal challenges and living through bankruptcy and foreclosure, the author writes with a tint of humor that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Stuck in Vegas

Jeff and Mike spent early mornings and late evenings in the beautiful Nevada desert with Brian McGlenn from Curran and Connors. We just finished two days of shooting for NV Energy down in Vegas. The images were regional senics for NV Energy’s upcoming annual report. The shoot went great. We found the perfect locations for the needed images and wrapped up the shoot on time. Which brings us to here. Bad weather stomped on airline schedules and pushed our flight back 4 hours. We are now part of the weary and cranky travelers trying to get somewhere. Everyone is so tired that people watching isn’t even fun anymore. The flight can’t get here soon enough.




Animal Artistry Wraps up Safari Club International with a photo shoot

Jeff and Mike spent two day shooting big game last week. But instead of rifles they were armed with cameras and lights at Mike Boyce’s Animal Artistry. Animal Artistry is one of the nation’s leading taxidermy facilities handling game from the world wide. The elaborate dioramas are always challenging to light and photograph due to their complexity. Jeff strives to sculpt the light around the animals and enhance the life like details that Boyce has recreated in their poses.
