Welcome to the Webbpage Blog. Home of Tim Webb Photography. Here is where you can see what really goes on in my life. Enjoy!
Laura and I took a few minutes and did some snow portraits at Elmwood on Eastern's campus. She's such a serious person!!!
It's been a while since I've got to cover storm damage. Kevin Osbourn and I travelled to Magoffin County in Eastern Kentucky for East Kentucky Power yesterday as crews worked to repair broken transmission lines and poles. Most of this lineman crew has been working nonstop since the first ice storm hit nine days ago on February 10th. Kevin and I had the pleasure of delivering lunch, 30 double cheeseburgers and fries, to these heroes working to get the lights back on!
I got photograph a really compelling story about Jim Warner of Flemingsburg, and his service dog Maurice for the February issue of Kentucky Living Magazine.
I've always told the editors at Kentucky Living Magazine that if a photographer ever tells you that they don't care about getting a cover shot to fire them! Because they're lying to you! It may seem arrogant but I never ran into a photographer who didn't enjoy being published. It's just part of it. It completes the editorial process and brings it all full circle. This cover shot of Evelyn Ballard helping to decorate her family Christmas tree with homemade ornaments that her mother Amanda made from her father's shirts, who had recently passed away, was my 70th cover shot for the magazine. My first one was back in July 1992.
I had to wait almost a year before I could publish this photo that I took last February for Kentucky Living Magazine. Sometimes, you know a picture is a good image the very moment that you snap the shutter, before you ever see it on a screen. That's the way it was with this one. After the shoot was over I knew which one I was looking for when I downloaded my cards...and it didn't disappoint! There was a certain majesty about it.
Minus the two Polar Vortexes from 2014 and 2015, there just isn't much opportunity for good winter shots in Kentucky anymore.
