The Salad Days: Volume Two

September 26, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

One of my all-time favorite movies is Raising Arizona. Nicholas Cage has a great line in the movie that goes, "These were the happy times, the salad days as they say." I've always called my busy times The Salad Days. The Salad Days for me run from mid-March to late June. It's funny how predictable my schedule can actually be as a freelancer with no set schedule. It usually picks up in January on the day after MLK Day, because the corporate world wakes up on that Tuesday morning and realizes that Christmas is over, the kids are back to school, and it's time to start working on annual reports. It really cranks up by mid-March and goes non-stop until the end of June. Sometimes, I may have 3-4 jobs a day during this stretch. 

Then, come July 1st, the corporate world goes on vacation, and so do I. August is usually busy with back-to-school stuff with the universities, and I see the same trend as in January. It takes the Tuesday after Labor Day for them to wake up and realize that summer is over and the kids are back in school, and it's time to get started on projects again. It slows down in November, just in time for me to go deer hunting, but then comes back with a vengeance in December. It then becomes a race to get as much work done as possible before Christmas. In December, I'm back to several jobs a day until December 20th, and then it dies off again for the holidays. 

I'm going to do a few blog posts on some of the work from this year's Salad Days, which I was glad to see, because it was the first normal season that I had had since the pandemic hit. 

Today's post is from work that I did at Transylvania University in Lexington this spring and summer. I can safely say summer because Transy's commencement ceremony is always over Memorial Day weekend, a little later than some of the other universities and colleges. This is a combination of some classroom stock work and commencement. I was really happy that I was able to also do some photographs of Taylor Kennon, who graduated in May. His parents, Jared and Julie Kennon are life-long friends of mine, going all the way back to Clay City Elementary in the late 70s and early 80s. Once again, I love when life comes full-circle.

Today's post will be some work that I did with Alltech. I've been working their symposium and ONE Conference since 2004. I also did some social media work this spring for their dietary supplement Acutia.

The Washington Youth Tour

August 29, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

My good friend Wade Harris with the Kentucky Electric Cooperatives compiled a really nice video while I was shooting the Kentucky Living Magazine cover shots of the Kentucky kids on the Washington Youth Tour back in June. Each of the state's electric cooperatives sends juniors in high school to Washington for a week. I get to go each year and shoot the magazine covers and document the week. And...wait for it...as a bonus, I'm including a really good video of me showing off some of my old-man dance moves. I was always known in high school and college for my superb dancing and rhythm. Not!

Old School Numbers

August 15, 2022

My latest t-shirt has caused some confusion because people don't understand what all these numbers mean. I guess this is another shirt that gives away my age, because if you ever worked with an old school camera before the digital revolution you would recognize these numbers...22, 16, 11, 8, 5.6., 4, 2.8, 2, 1.4 as the aperture settings, or f-stops on a camera lens. The numbers didn't disappear over time. They're still used in SLR cameras, but today's cameras are a little more automated and people don't have to understand the manual settings like we used to.

Kit Carson Commons Photo Exhibit

May 31, 2022

Earlier this spring I worked with the Kentucky River Foothills to create a photo exhibit in the workforce training center of their new scholars house on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University, called Kit Carson Commons. It is a scholar house program for single parents going to college at EKU, Bluegrass Community and Technical College and the University of Kentucky. The program helps remove housing as a barrier to higher education.

I got to go this morning and see the photos for the first time since they were hung on the walls a few days ago.
