Shelby Girl!

Are you kidding me? Who said “terrible two’s”? This sweetheart was a “Terrific Two!” In no time at all I had more great images than I know what to do with. However, I know what to do with a few of them, and that is to show them off here. Mom’s already had an advanced view of her gallery and will soon have some more to share as well. Here are a few of my favorites!

2013 JAS Culture Festival – Iwakuni

Last weekend was a blast, shooting an event for the Japanese American Society as they hosted a Culture Festival here in Iwakuni. Guests were entertained by Fire Dragons, Kagura and Taiko drums as well as trying their hand at origami, calligraphy and Japanese flower arraignments. Great food and a tea ceremony to-boot!

Got an upcoming Event and need a photographer? Contact me on the menu above!

Plum Blossoms at Kanmuriyama Park

An awesome day with my wife near Hikari. We went to Kanmuriyama Park where there are hundreds of Plum Blossom trees. A nice overcast day, a little cool, but a great day to try out some Macro photography on these little buggers. Click the image below to view the lightbox.

Too Fat To Photograph? Never!

Let’s face it, some of us, ehem, yours truly included, don’t like our picture taken because of a few extra pounds that we swear we will loose some day. Well, let me tell you, I looked and Someday isn’t a day on the calendar and never will be. I found this great blog post that I want to share with you all, that might just help you and I get over our insecurities in order to be photographed. We really need to think about who we are cheating out of memories of us. Just because we look on ourselves as “not quite ready for prime time” and perhaps grimace at the the thought of a permanent reminder of ourselves to ever be in existence, it’s more about who else will see that photo and only be reminded of a bright smile and loving arms. Please follow the link below.

So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed . . .

Reset, Renewed And Ready for Business in Iwakuni

Hello new friends in Iwakuni, Japan!

I am thrilled to be here and I hope to provide you with top-notch photographic services for your family portraits, high-school seniors, little ones and much more.

The down and dirty brief about me is:

– I am a former Marine, Desert Storm era, and previously stationed in Okinawa at Futenma. I could not wait to get here when we found out we were going to be not only stationed in Japan, but also on a U.S. Marine base. My blood runs deep with the Corps, and this is a therapy beyond belief for me to be here. But that’s an entirely different story.

– I have been in the photographic and imaging industry off and on for the past 25+ years in one capacity or another. Whether it was in the film or digital darkroom, photographing families and beautiful country club weddings, or producing high-resolution images for the largest construction projects in Southern Nevada; I have spent a lot of time and effort within the imaging arts industry.

– I have a Bachelors degree in Information Technologies for the University of Phoenix and left my career in IT Solutions to be here with my wife.

The bottom line is, I want to earn your trust and photography business while I’m here in Iwakuni. We all know there are other photographers here that do some absolutely wonderful work and some have raised the bar pretty high with regards to the quality of work and products they deliver to you. I feel  the community here is very fortunate to have had such professionals and I only wish to be an addition worthy of your past fortunes.
