I've been busy lately and I always run away from my blog when I get busy. Without a moving concept to write about I ignore it, I don't want to force "content" and I don't often feel moved to just post photos. But...
Everybody likes lists and everybody likes "Best of..." content, right!?!
So, without further delay, here is my Best of October 2017.
I spent some time on multiple days in the village as part of a project to help them out with images of their town. I was really impressed with the beauty of the parks they have. If you're a "Let's go to a park" kind of person I highly recommend you check them out.
I have been covering at least a story a week for The Post-Crescent since 2012. The one story that I've done every week since then is Good Neighbors. It's a sweet article about the awesome people in our community spending their time to make it better.
My favorites from October was a retired teacher helping with book sales for a non-profit and a high school student that makes dog bandannas for adopted dogs.
Microsoft & Gener8tor
I worked with Gener8tor to photograph a breakfast that was hosted by the Brad Smith (President of Microsoft and an Appleton native) and Women in Technology.
I had a total of 3 seconds with Brad for the portrait, sure wish I had 3 minutes to make some adjustments... but given the circumstances I'm happy with it.
The other portraits are from startup companies that are the first crop of Gener8tor gBETA in Northeast Wisconsin, a concierge startup accelerator.
I photographed a big wedding with over 300 guests.
I photographed a small wedding with 50 guests. For the first time in Graham Wedding history we did portrait sittings for every single wedding guest. I really liked how they turned out, and it's something I'm definitely hoping to do more of.
I did an engagement session with a sweet couple. I am very much looking forward to their wedding on Madeline Island next summer.
I had a surprisingly low amount of music photos this month... not sure what happened there!
The music photography I did happened all in one night. I met up with The Hawkeyes for a portrait then headed to Outer Edge Stage for Dan Rodriguez's Mile of Music Presents show.
I photographed sunsets. Of my two favorites one was right in my backyard (park next to my house) where I found a woman and her dog taking in the view and the other was a couple steps outside the front door to The Draw.
Kirsty Mitchell's Wonderland at the Paine
I went to see Kirsty Mitchell's Wonderland exhibit at The Paine Art Center in Oshkosh with my wife and parents. Every image of hers was stunning and worthy of minutes of viewing. Such a beautiful exhibit.
Emma Six Months Old!
My personal favorite? My daughter Emma, she turned 6 months old.
Thanks for stopping by!
