• Garbageman

    We hear his big truck first. The low rumble of his heavy-duty engine as the truck methodically works its way down the block. Then you hear the hydraulic whine of the mechanical arm as it lifts the garbage bins high in the air, then flips them over and dumps...
  • The Story Behind The Pictures

    Ana has been my favorite model to work with for over a decade now.  We have done hundreds of photoshoots together, but since we became foster parents four years ago, and adoptive parents this year, working together has been rare. Recently, Aunt Elaine Goodlad gave us a day off,...
  • Raising Responsible Adults

    As a father and a taxpayer, I can’t help but look at the state of our world and ask myself who the heck raised these fools.  My grandmother was the most significant influence in my life, and she was born in 1917 in the prairie province of Saskatchewan in...
  • Being Prepared For Disaster – Interview With A Prepper

    Before 2020 I always thought of people who stored large caches of food and water, medical supplies, and other supplies and survival equipment as oddballs. After lining up to buy toilet paper and rationing squares when none could be found, I have changed my opinion. Being prepared by having...
  • She Almost Left Me Over The Red Boots

    Ana got a sitter for our three kids and came with me on a day business trip to LA last week. We don’t get a sitter often so we made good use of the time by doing what we love to do most together, a photoshoot. She is my...
  • Tiffany Newell Grew Up

    Models. At the end of the day, they are just people. They are somebody’s daughter, their little girl that a blink ago was wearing diapers. Somewhere between developing an attitude and getting a job, they grew up and became women. I had the pleasure of meeting Tiffany when she...
  • Dealing With The Covid-19 Pandemic And Depression

    This year has kicked everyone’s butt and some people much harder than others. Suicide is such a problem that the US National Library Of Medicine website posted an article titled Covid19-Suicides: A Global Psychological Pandemic.  Ana and I talk about our circumstances and what we have learned about ourselves...
  • Sisters, Models, And Vegas Showgirls

    Photo by: Joe McNally @joemcnallyphoto Alexi and Joli Irvine are sisters, professional dancers and models, and both are Vegas Showgirls.  They have played many of the biggest shows on the strip, yet they remain grounded and are sweet and down to earth girls despite their ample time in the spotlight.  When...
  • Falling In Love Again

    I retired from commercial photography a few years ago, so I don’t do as many photoshoots now as I once did. It’s better this way. When I do work, I feel a passion for it like I did years ago before the dollars became more important than the art....
  • Why We Didn’t Celebrate Our Anniversary This Year

    Our eighth wedding anniversary came and went with little fanfare on the 8th of this month.  Ana and I had dated four years before we married, we wanted to be sure.  So with a strong love and twelve years of wedded bliss under our belts, it should have been...
