2018: A Year in Review

In 2018, I looked to refine the clients I connected with and the types of photography I want to continue pursing throughout the next five years.

Crow Construction is one of those primary partners-in-crime for me. They’re laid back, people-first, are community-focused and believe in providing the best solutions for their customers. I’ve been honored to be apart of their imaging starting in January 2018 and continuing today! Some of my favorites are below.

That last image in that set? They’re renovating the historic Coca-Cola bottling plant in downtown Morrilton to serve as the new HQ for their operations. Excited to document that opening at the end of the summer!

Early on in 2018, I also partnered with Yell County historian, Dr. Diane Gleason, to photograph images of various structures and sites around the county for her book: A Pictoral History: Dardanelle & The Bottoms, 1880-1980.

The last image in that series graces the cover of the book. If you’re interested at all in the Yell County area, Dr. Gleason is truly the expert. She and her family have heaps of records, documenting the people that have made up that place for generations. Also, in 2018, she won the 2018 J. G. Ragsdale Award for Best Non-Fiction Book on Arkansas History and the 2018 Worthen Literary Prize for the Best Fiction or Non-Fiction Book by an Arkansas author. For such an occasion, I had the opportunity to take a few portraits for her.

After having the opportunity in 2017 to produce cycling photos to promote Clarksville’s trail systems, Russellville approached me in 2018. Although progress has been slow to the casual onlooker over the past 10 years, the city has a solid plan in place to make two wheeled transportation much more friendly. The piece surrounding this photography called for shots of the hard surfaced and soft surfaced systems that we have around the area.

Also, my good friend Nathan ran for political office. Again, honored that he’d choose me for his official portrait taking.

Miss Arkansas, Claudia Raffo, paid me a visit on behalf of Dr. Michael Cooper Dentistry. Dr. Cooper is a huge supporter of the program and this was my third year to photograph Miss Arkansas on his behalf.

One last momentuous event in 2018, was the introduction of Outerbike to NWA. IMBA celebrated their “Dirty 30″ with programming throughout the weekend of Outerbike and I was there to capture handfuls of moments of behalf of them.

And there were many, many more shoots in-between. For more slices of 2018, instagram & Facebook are the best places for those in real time.
