An evening with Bennett, Prager and Hewitt

Bennet, Prager & Hewitt Tuesday night I worked an event for local talk radio station AM1280 The Patriot called “Obama: The First 100 Days” with radio hosts Bill Bennett, Dennis Prager and Hugh Hewitt. It was a discussion of how the first 100 days of this historic presidency have gone, and how it will effect this greatest nation on God’s green earth, if I may borrow a catch-phrase from the absent Michael Medved. An outsider might expect this to be an evening of Obama bashing, but that would be discounting the sheer intelligence and wisdom represented by the three gentlemen pictured above. Every criticism they had was backed up by logic, common sense and even history. These guys know their stuff. And they even had some points on which they commended Obama, usually something that didn’t go quite as he campaigned, but rather showing that the president is either more level-headed than we feared, or that perhaps access to higher-level intelligence and advisors have changed his tune. It was great to see people that I have listened to and hold in such high regard, in person.

More photos of the event and portraits of the VIP dinner attendees with the hosts will be available online by the end of this weekend.

Old Photos Online

Joe Holmers in <i>Kiss Me Kate</i>

The uploading continues… I’ve got a couple more shows from the archives just added to the gallery. Both are from 2006. Kiss Me Kate at Morris Park Players and Twelfth Night at Macalester College. I haven’t done any editing or color correcting, so these are jpegs straight out of the camera – both keepers and duds. Mostly just wanted to get them uploaded for the purposes of backup, rather than actual marketing… but who knows, right?

Feeling the Zen

Fly By Night Graphics, Ltd.We are in the process of switching our image hosting service. I had been using Pictage on a 6 month discounted trial basis. They have a lot to offer, but they charge quite a bit for everything. At the trial price, I could sustain a business, but once it kicks up their regular monthly fee, it’s just not going to be feasible. I can see it being a viable business plan for another studio that does much more volume than I do. Plus, their commissions on prints and products are on the high end for the industry… and just went up. So, over the last month or so, I did a lot of research on various services and settled on Zenfolio. If you happen to be in the market for online photo storage or marketing, use this referral code for a $5 discount: YSR-CAR-7SR. Still lots of uploading to do… broadband can only do so much in the up direction. More categories and events will be added as time permits. But, you can check out what we have so far here. Weddings are password protected – I tried to make them the same as they were before, if you had visited the old site. If you forgot or just want to check it out, shoot me an email.

Seth and Ronda sneak peek

Ronda and Seth were so much fun to work with. Shawnee and I had a great time shooting their wedding. I’m still editing through the images, but I wanted to give Seth and Ronda a sneak peek at some of my favorites so far. I just set up a new account that will let me do online print ordering, and it should go live next week. Read more to see some of the highlights from Seth and Ronda’s wedding…
