Casey and David

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

I have to give credit to David for this image.  We were almost done when the tree got his attention.  Luckily they were able to get up on the branch with his truck.  He let me shoot from the back of his pickup.  He was also very careful with helping Casey into the tree.

Thanks to you both.  I’m happy we got to work together again!

For those of you interested in learning more about production drawings, I have copied this blurb about them from www.animationconnection.com.

Original production drawings are one-of-a-kind pieces of animation art. Prior to the creation of cels, each character pose and action must be drawn in pencil. These drawings are the artistic backbone of the film or television show, and are much in demand by collectors.

While they lack the vivid colour of cels, drawings are very desirable for two main reasons. Many collectors prefer drawings because it is at this stage that the animators have really exercised their talents and brought the characters to life. Another appealing aspect of drawings is that they generally cost significantly less than a comparable production cel.

Original production drawings are a wonderful addition to any animation collection, and a great way to enjoy the artistry behind your favourite characters. See What To Look For In A Good Cel Or Drawing.

Apple is really starting to suck!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Anyone who is a Roadrunner customer cannot view my galleries created with MobileCrap, I mean MobileMe. “This browser is incompatible with MobileMe Gallery” is what Roadrunner users will see.

I can access from home using Embarq and Charter. I can access from my iPhone using Edge. My Aunt, girlfriend, and cousins all in different houses, in different cities connected to Roadrunner cannot. Apple blames Roadrunner. Roadrunner I am sure will blame Apple. I’m not sure I have the stomach to handle a call to Roadrunner. I have no account with them. I pay Apple for a service that should be compatible with any ISP. Apple has been screwed since the launch of MobileMe and Iphone 2.0. This sucks.

Please, everyone reading this click here. Comment to me if you can view the gallery or not. Thank you.

Trash The Dress – Kristy and Dave

Sunday, October 5th, 2008



I was pleasantly surprised when Kristy said she wanted a “trash the dress” session. I’ve been wanting to do one of these for a while. Kristy, Dave and a few friends were still in the Outer Banks a few days after the wedding so we had some fun in downtown Manteo then hit the beach. This option isn’t for everyone but if you are still deciding what to do with the dress…come to the Outer Banks!

Jenny and Theran came back to the Outer Banks to shoot a few more beach pictures. The super cool sunset spot is very near Sam and Omie’s in Nags Head. After capturing the sunset we scooted over to Sam and Omie’s restaurant. Manager Lauren was nice enough to let us shoot a few bride and groom bar pics. Afterwards we had dinner.

What’s Up With Meredith’s Face?

Thursday, September 25th, 2008


So I’m re-watching the Office Season 5 premiere. What’s going on with Meredith’s face? She looks like she broke out with something! There was never an explanation for this. Anyone know?


It seems to clear up by the time they are having the cake.

Nags Head Sunset – Megan and Pete

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

Nags Head Sunset
Due to inclement weather on top of their wedding starting late, Megan and Pete had to skip their sunset picture during their wedding. Luckily they were going to be in the Outer Banks a few more days. I asked them if they didn’t mind putting on their wedding garb again and coming with me to a sound front pier in Nags Head. Both were game for it although the skies had over cast all day. Minutes before this shot the sky opened up and created this wonderful drama.
