Ha Ha Tonka State Park

Spent the evening shooting at Ha Ha Tonka State Park. It was a nice evening but with a lot of people. Hadn't been there since I was a little kid so I was excited regardless to see the ruins of the castle. Great views as well. Enjoy!

Grand Falls - Joplin

While working on an assignment in Joplin for Rural Missouri I stopped for a sunrise at Grand Falls. Along Shoal Creek, on the southwest end of the town you can find Grand Falls. Great spot to shoot, mainly because it is easy to get to with being only off the road.

I also am unvailing my new logo. Let me know what you think of it. A new website is still in the works. Hope to launch it before Christmas.

World's Largest Small Appliance Museum

While in Joplin this past weekend working on a story I stopped in to the World's Largest Small Appliance Museum in Diamond, Missouri. Unbelievable amount of toasters this guy has. He also has hundreds of old coffee makers and other appliances, all in dang near mint condition. If you are ever in the area check it out. It is in the back of JR's Western Store.

Pratte Wedding - 10.23.10

Another wedding! The ceremony was at a church in St. Charles followed by the reception at DKlondike Park's conference center near Augusta. We also took photos at Creve Ceour Park. Klondike Park was really great, especially with the viewpoint on top of the cliff over the Missouri River. Great choice for a fall wedding with the color at it's peak.

Wertheimer Wedding

The wedding of Matt Wertheimer and Tracie Sisak. Ceremony at St. Francis Xavier on the Saint Louis University's campus in Midtown St. Louis. We took group photos at Busch Stadium and Tower Grove Park. The reception - which had amazing lighting - was at the Moolah Banquet Hall off of Fee Fee Road. The whole wedding party was great and had a fabulous time. Enjoy!

Aerial Basket School

For Rural Missouri I get to do some awesome stories and travel around the state. I also have to shoot photos for the Electric Cooperatives. Last week I had to snap a few shots of an Aerial Basket Training School. Got to go up in a bucket truck and shoot some stuff from a bird's eye view. Had some great light, clouds, blue sky and fall colors. I figured I would share some of the other things I do at my job. Enjoy!

First HDR with CS5

Just got CS5 and started playing around with the new tools. A huge update is the HDR editing. Photoshop CS5 makes it so much simpler for the user to edit/tone an HDR image. Was looking into Photomatix or other third party plug-ins for HDR editing, but I think this will work for the time being. If you have CS5 look into the updates they just released.
