Photography Articles photography articles Photography Articles Old Buildings 2 300x171Welcome to my photography articles page. So, what is my photography articles page all about? Glad you asked. As a Northwest Arkansas professional photographer, I’m always getting invited to go to this event and go to that event, try this product and try that product. There’s usually a reason people ask you to try new things. Technology changes. Fashions change. Life, in general, changes.

What’s popular today may not necessarily be popular tomorrow. It’s important that I go to some of these invites so I can stay on top of current trends in both technology and fashion. Professional photography events can be especially rewarding if you’re into finding new tricks of the trade.

From cameras and lighting to hair styles and clothes, I’m going to write a little bit about everything. Most of what I write about is going to come from personal experience. There are some things you simply can’t talk about unless you’ve had a particular experience in a particular situation.

I’m not just a model photographer from Northwest Arkansas. I’m also a wedding photographer, a sports photographer and, well, a photographer in general. You get the idea, I’m sure. The bottom line is this; I’ll photograph just about anything. As a result, you’ll see many different articles about many different things. You’ll also see a wide range of photography issues

Be sure to check back here often and see what’s happening. You can also sign up for my newsletter if you wish. I don’t send out a lot of email. You will, however, get the most current promotions, discounts and advance notice of our casting calls.

    I love to photograph old buildings. When I travel around the country, it’s hard not stop every few miles because of some rustic looking home or building. “The Gateway House“, as I call it, was one such building. Oddly enough, it’s located in Gateway, Arkansas (Hence the...
