Pete’s Junkyard Portraits and More

Pete and I worked together on two different occasions to make his senior photos.   The first time around we did some junkyard portraits with the goal of creating something a little edgy and dramatic followed by a few football themed portraits.

Lastly, here are a few other shots of Pete that I took during some of the other occasions that he filled in for my regular assistant and helped out on a shoot.

Here are some of my favorites from Ian’s senior photo shoot.

Kelsey Bradbury – Class of 2013 (Priest River Photographer)

This last Saturday I spent a good part of the day with Kelsey taking the first round of her Senior Photos at her grandparents’ home near Priest River.  Kelsey’s Grandfather graciously set up some hay bales for us to use and they worked out great!  You would not have even known it was 40 degrees out as Kelsey braved the cold in a sun dress, cowboy boots and for a few photos her dad’s hat.

Since it was a bit chilly still we are reserving most of our outdoor portraits for the warmer, greener months and spent the majority of our time on some studio style portraits.

The last part of our session we broke out the uniforms and did some sports themed portraits.

I had a great time spending the day with Kelsey, her Mom Sandy and Grandmother Jeanie.  We had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun, I can hardly wait for the weather to get nicer so we can schedule round number two!

Nick’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

Since Nick moved to Sandpoint a little over a year ago I have had the opportunity to capture images of him out on the football field and the basketball court.  Now in his senior year I was honored to have the opportunity to take his senior photos.  Here are some of the final results.

Nick’s brother was gracious enough to volunteer to help me fine tune my lighting while Nick was preparing for the next series of photos.

To finish  out this post, here is a football themed Senior Poster

Weekly Sports Recap (09/12/2011)

My sports coverage was a little lighter this week due to some portrait work and a wedding in Sacramento.   I love shooting sports but I also have to pay my bills so portrait and wedding work always takes priority!  I did make sure to schedule my flights for the wedding so that I would only miss a Saturday’s worth of games though.  Here is this weeks recap of my sports and sports related work this last week.

Senior posters take some time and I am very busy these days so if you are interested in a Senior Poster for Senior Night please make sure to contact me well in advance.

Tyler’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

Tyler and I arrived at Memorial Field in Sandpoint at the brink of dusk to shoot some dramatic football themed senior photos.  We had to work quickly to be able to get some shots of the victory bell in the background before it became too dark to capture it adequately.

After dark we had the opportunity to do some fun lighting . . .

At the end of our we set up some of my favorite shots of the evening, I put a couple of flashes in the stands to use as a background.  It is very possible that this is the last football season that those stands will be there so years from now I am sure Tyler will look back with fond memories of those stands that have seated thousands of fans for many years.

For the final photo of this post I compiled a Senior Poster mixing together a great shot from our time together and a couple of photos from the last two football seasons.


George’s Senior Photos (Sneak Peek)

I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with George on Schweitzer mountain where we went to take his Senior Photos.  I have been trying to get the editing finished, but one thing after another has come up and kept me away from the computer, so to hold George over for a little while longer here is a sneak peek of a couple of the photos I have finished.
