365 Day 20-22: Just Post It Already

365 Day 20-22: Just Post It Already

Ok this is a cheat post. I’m a little behind because of last minute busy work prepping for our quick family trip to the Great White North. This post will have three images, and it titled as such in homage to that person who said it. (I told you I’d use it!) D300s || Nikkor [...]

365 Day 5: The Clan

365 Day 5: The Clan

Late nights make for a late post. Hung out with the entire clan yesterday at the house of Henny. My kids wanted to sleep over with all their cousins so the wifey and I had a nice quiet night alone. I thought about how different it will be when the youngest of all our buggers [...]


WI Will Not Go Silently Into the Night!

WI Will Not Go Silently Into the Night!

The granite statehouse in Madison is the only one of its kind. Rising up between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, it is the only State Capitol built on an isthmus – a narrow piece of land that separates two bodies of water. Over the past several weeks, thousands of people have flocked to Wisconsin’s Capitol [...]


Bulletproof: Aryll + Andrew

Bulletproof: Aryll + Andrew

Ask her, and their story started on the first day of high school. He says, it started in their junior year- the night after a fashion show benefit. According to Andrew, it was the same as many high school hook-ups. A friend of a friend said their friend likes you. So, you go scope out [...]

Jamie + Kevin: Olbrich Gardens Wedding

Jamie + Kevin: Olbrich Gardens Wedding

The morning started out cloudy and gloomy, but by the afternoon, the clouds broke and the sky cleared. So what began as a somber start to the day, turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon; perfect weather for an outdoor garden wedding! Olbrich Gardens is a popular venue for weddings on Madison’s East Side. Maybe it’s the lush 16 [...]

three . six . five [33] Break It Down

Last night I took my son to Gordon Commons on the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus. My mission tonight: Meet up with the UW Breakers; get to know the local b-boys and b-girls and get a feel for the current state of the culture in Madison, and also to expose my son, Atraiu, to [...]


three . six . five [32] The Barrymore

three . six . five [32] The Barrymore

If you go to shows in Madison you’ve likely found yourself at the Barrymore Theatre at one point or another. This historical Madison venue was called “the Eastwood” from 1920′s  to the 1980′s when it was rescued, refurbished and renamed. Over the century, the Barrymore has hosted everything from music and movies, to parties and puppetshows, and [...]


three . six . five [26 + 27] Autumn

three . six . five [26 + 27] Autumn

I spent the past couple of days trying to get some Autumn themed shots, but couldn’t take anything that seperated me from the rest. Running into somewhat of a creative rut, and aside from my personal projects, I’m having a hard time trying to find myself in my images. This 365 project is forcing me to [...]

three . six . five [24] Spwite Pwease

Last night I headed over to Buffalo Wild Wings, a popular sports bar around the US. The occasion was three-fold; celebrate the day my wife and I first met, a friends birthday, and to watch Randy Moss in his first game back with the Vikings (what happened last night Brent Favré?). It was a fun night, and I [...]


three . six . five [23] Atraiu’s Dilema

three . six . five [23] Atraiu's Dilema

My son always makes me laugh. I saw him running around trying to find something, and when he found what he was looking for I saw him pacing back and forth with this BIG dilemma. So I talked to him to ask what the problem was, and as it turns out, he was upset because [...]


three . six . five [21] Fall Fun!

three . six . five [21] Fall Fun!

I spent the part of the weekend at parents place and hung out with the nephews and kids. We decided to clean up the leaves in my parents yard, it was fun putting everything in a huge pile then messing it up again! (isn’t that why we rake leaves?)  The kids had a great time, [...]


three . six . five [018] Scawee Face

three . six . five [018] Scawee Face

In the spirit of Haloween, I photoshopped my eldest daughter Camiya into a Samara look-alike. My son Atraiu saw the image and says “I want a ‘scawee’ face too!” I couldnt resist! (Samara is the cutie from the horror movie “The Ring”) This was a little more challenging as my son is to darn cute [...]


three . six . five [016] My Daughter’s Gone Goth

three . six . five [016] My Daughter's Gone Goth

My kids will always be my favorite models, they are cute, photogenic and make for great subjects for candid photography. I find myself always using them to try out new techniques or to test out new angles or poses. Naturally, impatience will get the best of them on occasion, but for the most part they are always [...]

three . six . five [013] HDR

I read an article recently showcasing the work of Andrew Rees, where he took a beautiful black and white timelapse and converted it to HDR. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it is a technique where you take multiple shots of an image under different exposures and use third party software to merge them together. The result is [...]


three . six . five [007]: Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?

three . six . five [007]: Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?

Had kind of a bad start to the day, so not much to write about other than I got a speeding ticket not even a full two blocks from my home, in my neighborhood. I’m not going to sit here and try to justify my speed- speeding is speeding and the law is the law. [...]
