Here are a few favorites from last week. A group of friends and family gathered for a photograph near a donated billboard honoring Kristopher “Kit” Collins. Kit was killed last August on Washington Blvd. in Ogden while skateboarding.
I am always amazed at the strength and courage displayed in times of tragedy like this. It is every parents fear that they outlive their children. I can’t imagine what it must be like. But hearing stories about Kit, his love for life and the love he had for his friends and family make me want to live better, treat others differently, and put aside all the petty nonsense I face on a daily basis.
I stumbled upon this photo I overlooked while going through some images from a church party. It’s obviously a children’s rendition of the nativity, with a ninja wise man mixed in.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!
“If this photo shows up on a billboard, I WILL SUE.” This was by far my favorite quote from this particular photo shoot.
The Brigham City Hospital prefers to use actual employees and members of their community for their marketing campaigns. I think it’s a great idea. I’m sure those whose photos are used on billboards, no matter how reluctant they were to be photographed, enjoy the connection with the community.
Morgan was all over the floor at home tonight against Ben Lomond in what turned out to be a serious blow out. I don’t fault Ben Lomond, it’s just that Morgan is that good. I suspect this team has a very bright future. View the entire slide show here.
A few years ago I shot this photo of Nick Keefer at Wolf Mountain for the Deseret News. This season looks promising so far in terms of snow pack. So if anyone is crazy enough to pull some stunts like this, let me know. I’d be crazy enough to take your photo.
Using a super fast motor drive to shoot sports is one of the best tools to capture the best action. However, one of the drawbacks is that once a series of photos are captured, it can be difficult to choose the best action shot of the series.
This was the case on Wednesday. I couldn’t decide which of these two photos was the best. If you have a strong opinion on the matter, let me know. It’s your turn to be a photo editor for the day!
Who said shooting family portraits in the snow was a bad idea? The photos turned out really nice but there was one challenge, having to erase a few snowflakes from in front of their faces. They chose this spot because their dog Molly trains with a herd of sheep and this is their home away from home.
After all the frenzied shopping was done, Station Park launched its Christmas season by welcoming the jolly old elf atop a Farmington fire engine. If you haven’t yet seen the shopping center, it’s pretty amazing. I have been to several of their properties and they have created some pretty awesome places for the community to come together and hang out, eat, shop and relax.
And if you do go, make sure you don’t leave there without munching on a pizza at Settebello Pizza. That place rocks!!
I covered the annual Santa Run which kicks off the Christmas season in Ogden. I have often thought it would be a great event to participate in with my family but it seems I always end up photographing it instead.
Here are some of my favorites. And HERE is the link to the story in the Standard-Examiner
