Well... as I write this there are two hours left in the month of May. So it's time for a BEST OF APRIL BLOG POST!!!
I've had a bunch of people ask me why I wait so long to post a best of the month (by a bunch I mean zero, well maybe one, if you count myself, I just wanted to talk about why). I have to wait some amount of time to allow my clients to make use of the images first. Also, this blog post thing isn't always just for you the viewer sometimes it is for me too. Waiting for this stretch of time gives me a nice break from when I created the images, it gives me a fresh look at old work.
So... April was busy. Lots of images to show here, combined with the least amount of words possible.
I started out the month by testing out my new drone. I passed the FAA 107 license test in March, but I wasn't insured for commercial drone work until April 1st.
I hung out with Gregory Frederic and did some portrait work with him. He's a painter that creates some fantastically entertaining pieces.
Christopher the Conquered was in town to play a Mile Presents show at Riverview Gardens. We hung out for 10 minutes before his set and got two different setting in.
I did a little bit of Real Estate work. This home in Little Chute was for Kevin Evers of Nine Twenty Realty. To show our wacky weather in Wisconsin... the first drone image and the second were taken one week apart.
I continued my work for the Good Neighbor article that runs weekly for The Post-Crescent.
Next was a meet and greet and pitch for start-up companies that went through the gener8tor gBETA program.
A couple days later I was stepping into my office on a Saturday and there were a couple people that seemed to be looking for someone or something. It turned out they were a couple from Appleton North on their way to prom at Lambeau. They wanted to do some photos inside the Draw space. I let them in and just to be a nice guy did a couple quick and non-typical prom portraits for them.
Next up was YPWeek. It is a week long dive into our area's offering for careers and lifestyles for young professionals. The week is put together by PULSE, a branch of the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce. The kickoff for the state wide YPWeek was in Green Bay as the Catalyst Art Show with organization from NEWaukee at the T2 Accelerator offices.
Here are the highlights from the kickoff event and the rest of the week.
I had the opportunity to shoot some food at one of my favorite restaurants, Becket's.
The big gig of the month... portraits for a pre-K program's field trip to The Draw. The kids picked their background color then stepped in for their shot. This was a blast.
To cap off the month it was your favorite, my favorite, our favorite night market, Bazaar After Dark Little Chute version. It was a pleasure to document this event again. I was able to sneak in some portraits of two of the performing musical acts; Okey Dokey and McKinley Dixon. I'm really looking forward to Neenah on July 19th and Menasha on September 12th.
Thanks for stopping by!
