Best of May 2018

Is there a better place than the Fox Cities in Spring?

Yeah, I’m starting my post with a question and obnoxious sentiment. But after the winter we had, spring felt pretty great and summer is rocking. From commercial photography projects and community functions to aerial photography and personal projects, May was a happenin month.

A bird’s-eye view of Appleton, Wisconsin

Found myself with a clear schedule one a few days this month and decided to take the drone out for some practice. The lighting and flying conditions were perfect and I was able to capture some great shots of Downtown Appleton, Little Chute and the Fox River.

These made my “Best of” because it was a trifecta night. Amazing music, amazing subject, amazing experience. So grateful that I was a part of it.

ROCK THE BLOCK in Little Chute, Wisconsin with Habitat For Humanity

I picked my camera the day I spent with the the wonderful Habit For Humanity volunteers in Little Chute. Building houses and building community. This is a great community driven effort by Habitat for Humanity. I’ve enjoyed photographing a few of these.

Meijer Grand Chute Grand Opening Event with CEO Hank Meijer

This was an interesting and challenging commercial photo shoot. Capturing the store, employees, and customers posed particular challenges and opportunities. Employees in work mode. Customers in shopping mode. The store in staged, grand opening mode.
