I shot this at the Okmulgee lake. I shot this because i love the look of fire and i wanted to experiment on different ways i could shoot it. i am very pleased with the result. I shot this with a Canon 7D 

Dandelion in the dark

This is a dandelion right in front of the dorms on campus. I originally went out to shoot the moon but when i was walking back inside i caught a glimpse of this i decided to shoot it. I find it interesting because the only time you see shots of dandelions is in the daylight and i found this so unique and the streetlight on the opposite side only made it cooler!

Sunset at the lake

This is the Okmulgee lake at sunset. I originally went to have a cookout with some family but couldn't resist shooting this beautiful scene. I shot this with a Canon 7D

Midnight Drive

I shot this at the Okmulgee lake and i shot it because i have always loved the creepy look of headlights at night. i really wanted to make it look dark and ominous. I shot this with a Canon 7D

This is my niece Emylia Stapley. I recently received an assignment where we had to shoot several different lighting styles. I knew Emylia would give me great variety and it helps she is completely adoreable!


This is a window inside Carrie Henning's living room. every time i looked at it i got the urge to shoot it. I knew if i didn't i would regret it. I shot this with a Canon 7D with ambient light

Oklahoma Storms

We had some nasty storms come through Okmulgee Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago. Everyone ran inside for cover but my first instinct was to grab my camera and try and capture natures best light show.

Girl of the country

This is Shawna Olsen walking through a field of wheat in Kingman KS. I was shooting Shawna's wedding portraits in a field of wheat and after we finished she lifted her dress to walk back and i found it to be stunning. To me it made me really see the country in the girl. I shot this with a Canon 7D

Dancing Feet

This is Ezra and Shawna Olsen. I shot some wedding portraits for them in Kingman Kansas on a brick road. I found their feet very interesting because the groom has nice dressy shoes on and the bride has bare feet. i thought it was cute and would make a great image. I shot this image with a Canon 7D

Shawna and Ezra

This is Shawna And Ezra Olsen. I shot this wedding portrait on 23 of May 2010, in Kingman KS at the Kingman United Methodist Church. Shawna and Ezra have always wanted a vintage feel to their wedding and this is how we chose to achieve it. I shot this with a Canon 7D and ambient light.
