In September we welcomed a new baby daughter! She was born one day before the final art show of the season. Because of that, I have a large inventory of 12x18 prints packaged and ready for immediate delivery. These prints will make perfect gifts. All photos show here are printed on traditional photo paper (about half on Fuji and half on Kodak), with a luster finish. They are loose prints intended to be framed. Click on the photo to view it large, under the large view there is a place to purchase that photo.

3/1/2018: Chasers/Royals 50th Anniversary

Chasers/Royals 50th Anniversary

I'm excited to share this photo with everyone.  For the past few months, I have been working on a special photo for the Omaha Storm Chasers celebrating their 50th Season in Omaha.  This is a composite photo I made from two different photos.  It starts with a photo I took on July 4th 2008 at Rosenblatt Stadium and transitions in to a photo I took 4/16/2011 at Werner Park.  Currently the Chasers are handing out this photo to some of their Premier Partners, but it will be available in the Storm Front Team Store at Werner Park this season.

Its been privilege working with the Omaha Royals and Storm Chasers for the past decade.  I have experienced a lot of great opportunities during that time and this photo is right up there with the best of them.  I look forward to what the next decade holds.
