Stock & Other Photography
My current photography work includes work in my studio taking photos for Tim's Custom Engraving, a business by a local craftsman who makes beautiful laser-engraved pieces and crafts/signs from many different types of wood. If you need photos for your website or a catalog, contact me.
A few years back, I had the pleasure of taking pictures of fluffy cows on spec for a children's book publisher. I couldn't resist snapping this cow checking out my camera bag. If you love fluffy cows and need to license one for a project, please contact me for a contact sheet.
Past freelance photography work has included food images for a local restaurant's Facebook page as well as painted decor items for craft publisher Viking Woodcrafts, which needed both close-up shots to help illustrate the painting instructions and overall "beauty" shots of the projects. Pictured here is a page from Country Primitives 15 by Maxine Thomas. I took photos for more than a dozen books by the publisher. During my eight years on Goldmine, I of course shot concert and other photos for the magazine but also had pictures published in other Krause Publications such as Old Cars Weekly: A Collector’s Guide to Muscle Cars and Sports Collectors' Digest (Minnesota Twins photos). More information on my concert photography and related photo credits, is available on the Music Photos page.
I also worked for the Waseca County News for more than three years as a reporter/photographer and so published photos in sister publications and other regional newspapers as well, including the Janesville Argus, The County Farmer and Senior News Magazine.
