I had a great time today shooting photos of local model and clothing designer Sophie Hines for the Daily Nebraskan. I still don’t feel fully comfortable in a studio, but I think I made some progress in understanding how that whole thought process works today. Thanks, Sophie!

playboy’s barmate of the year, hannah gappa

I had the pleasure of photographing Hannah Gappa for a story the Daily Nebraskan is doing on her being awarded the title of Playboy’s Barmate of the Year. She was an incredibly nice girl and it was a fun shoot. Have fun in Cabo, Hannah! I’m expecting a spike in hits because the title of this post includes the word playboy….new visitors, subscribe to this blog!

And lastly, a quick portrait I did after helping a friend take some photos for a book she is putting together for a class. The dress she made was awesome.


heading to penn state tomorrow. should be an interesting trip and a good opportunity to cover the events surrounding their campus right now. for now, a basketball season preview portrait and a portrait of my friend, Paige, who is doing awesome things.

and oh yeah, if you haven’t already, go listen to this.

Here’s some green – my way of wishing that the weather would get warmer and stay warm. Spring break doesn’t feel like spring break when it’s 35 degrees.
