matthew santos.

Thanks to a high school friend, Kent, I was able to photograph at the Chicago House of Blues a few weeks ago for Matthew Santos. -more portfolio building- I really haven't done any bands/musicians at it was interesting, but I LOVED IT! I'm really pleased with the photos as well. I've started shooting in RAW, which makes a huge difference.

Check out Matthew Santos at:

he's real good. you can also be a trooper and buy his stuff on itunes. support the art.

oh, baby.

I finally finished up some "work" photography and am now getting around to the "fun" photography. I've been trying to build my portfolio and am looking for newborns and prego women! Let me know if anyone has recommendations. Here's a beautiful baby that I was able to photograph earlier this month.....

Ryan's website is up! Ryan Rendleman was a photojournalist who died in April of 2008. He was actually the youngest photojournalist to die in the USA on the job. There is even a memorial for him in Washington D.C.! Ryan's amazing brother, Nick, typed up Ryan's journals and made them, along with all of Ryan's works, available for us to see online! The website is:
CHECK IT OUT! His journals are so inspiring, intriguing, and passionate. Ryan, after 6 years of self-satisfying and searching, actually gave his life to the Lord. His testimony is so wonderful.

We aren't promised tomorrow, step out in faith today.

work flow...

1. I think I finally figured out why the coloring has always been so distorted on Blogger....because I'm always uploading low res versions of the images. I just realized the the color is pretty good in the "Riley" post...and those were almost full res images. Sorry folks, now I know for future.

2. I'm now on my third avenue for a website...and I think this one is a keeper. Keep posted for updates on the finished site! Until then...this lovely blog will suffice.

3. My Italy exhibit is ready!!!!!!! This will be posted on Monday:

The Crowell Library is proud to unveil a new art exhibit entitled Italia: A Journey Abroad, which showcases the photography of Marianne Bach.

Please join us under the skylight Monday, September 21, 2009 at 6:30PM to hear Marianne speak about the exhibit, to hear some music, and to enjoy some refreshments.

Photography by Mary Glass and Jake Schnake will also be shown.

Bohr continued.
