Patricia and Jake | Omaha Engagement Session

It’s always nice to shoot photos for people you’ve known for a long time. Me and Jake have known each other for nearly a decade now, having played in a band together for about 5 years. Though we don’t keep in touch as often as we used to when we would have band practice twice a week, I was stoked he asked me to shoot engagment photos for him and his fiance.

We went out to Chalco hills and had to work against a crummy cloudy day and day light savings being that day we had an hour less “sunlight” than we would have had to boot. Luckily with some flash tricks we were able to create some nice light and give the impression of a nice golden hour.

Here’s some photos from their engagement session:

Cameron | Nebraska Portrait Photography

Lately I’ve been interested in playing with colors in my images. I’ve always liked the way Nicholas Winding Refn (Director of Drive, Only God Forgives, Bronson and a bunch of other great films) has used color in his work and wanted to try to do something a little wild like that.

The 2016 Ice Cream Cruise

A long long time ago, I met a man named Kyle Loftis. He was a friend of a coworker who came to hang out at our ice rink one day. He ran a small video company called “1320 Video” that filmed local street and regional street racing events. When I was just getting started he taught me a whole lot of things about photography and inspired me a whole lot.

Since then Kyle has built his small video company into an international brand that covers racing events all over the world. Kyle continues to inspire the hell out of me and I jump at any chance I can to work with him. Every year he hosts a local car show (which ends up being one of the biggest car shows of the midwest) and sometimes he asks me if I’m available to shoot some photos/video of the event.

Anyway, here’s some of my favorite photos from the event.
