Best of March 2018

March was a busy month, I realized this as I put this post together... much busier than I remember it being.

The month started off with a portrait session with George Shingleton. He's a country artist with a big barreled voice.

Next up was a product/food session for Little Food Co. It's a great company that offers simple ingredient hand made baby food. I love the line "The name of the food on the front of the packaging is the ingredient list on the back."

Amanda and I met while she was going through the gener8tor gBeta program to help her business get up and running. She was previously using stock photos, but she wanted photos that better matched her company's brand and also featured her packaging. We're both super happy with how the photos turned out.

I even made a GIF!

Then, on March 6th we had a snowstorm. I teamed up with the Village of Little Chute to showcase winter living in their city. I jumped in the cab of a snowplow and went on a normal route with a driver, then I headed to a couple sledding hills.

Revivalist Vintage. It's a lovey and exciting new business getting started by my Draw building neighbor AJ Miller of VAMP. Stay tuned to their IG page for pop-up announcements.

They'll be doing a street wear themed pop-up at Shear Chaos Salon & Barbering Co on May 18th as part of Appleton's Art on the Town. That same night I'll be at Mud & Prints Gallery doing some kind of photo portraits.

I happened to be in the office on a couple days that AJ was working with some models for examples of their collections.

Next was Sinfonia, a fund raising concert for the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra. The movie posters I made for the event were featured at the entrance and on the interlude video.

It was a lovely Monday night when Mile of Music pieced together a string of performances at a handful of venues for a showcase while Wisconsin Governor's Conference on Tourism was at Appleton's new Fox Cities Exhibition Center.

I photographed some real estate to help people sell their homes.

While my son was on spring break I took him into the Fork Farms location in Menasha so he could see the awesome work being done there. If you're not familiar with the growing options they're providing you should really check them out!

The History Museum at the Castle was nominated for a a 2018 National Medal for Museum and Library Service. But... they only had cell phone photos of their exhibits and needed some high quality images to support their bid for winning the recognition. I was happy to come in and photograph their Asylum exhibit and their ongoing Houdini exhibit.

I was also able to help them with some photos from my archive.

And... it was just announced today, they were one of five museums to win the award.

They have an awesome NFL exhibit coming in at the end of June.

I continued my work with The Post-Crescent's Good Neighbor story.

Beth Bombara came to town to perform at Riverview Gardens for Mile of Music's Rhythm and Brews series. We hung out for a quick session at my office space.

Thanks for stopping by!
