Here is a link to my recent work in Madison Magazine.
I spent time with several of Madison’s finest police officers and had the chance to photograph them for the article, which ran this month. The piece examines Madison’s special police unit trained specifically to handle calls regarding citizens with mental illnesses. It is a great article worth reading and Madison is lucky to have an operation like this.

I received a lot of questions about the topic suggestion photo I posted with Anna from “Frozen” yesterday. Was it an illustration? Was it a photo? Did I grab that from a promo ad for ”Frozen?” What is it all about?
Well, here is a little background. I was looking for a fun project to photograph that is a little outside some of my more regular family, senior, and newborn portrait work, and I asked for suggestions and topics that people would like to see me photograph. Of all of the topics submitted, I chose Disney and snow, and combined them in the obvious option of doing something involving the movie “Frozen.”
I picked up an 9-inch Anna (Barbie-style doll) from Target, 10 pounds of flour, some baby rice cereal, 16 gauge wire from the craft store and a bunch of rocks from the construction yard a few blocks away.
I staged the lighting, hit the fan, invited a stranger from Subway to come down to provide a winter fog effect with the aid of her nicotine vaporizer, and sifted flour and rice cereal over the top for the snow blown effect. Voila! You have Anna wandering through the snowy mountainside, looking for her sister Elsa!
Here are a couple behind the scene shots to go along with the final photo.
It was a lot of fun putting this together and I thank those that helped, and submitted suggestions.
If you have a suggestion you would like to see me tackle, send me a message!
