Bastone Photo Series Posted in 'Projects'

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I have finally found the time to post the final selection for the Bastone series that dominated my summer. (I have never talked to so many farmers in my life!) But let it be noted that it wasn't the dozens of farm bureau offices that I called that lead me in the right direction. In fact, they didn't even call back. Instead, it was the community of craft beer enthusiasts that seem to be thriving here in Michigan. So if you have the desire to learn anything about the beer brewing amidst you, I highly recommend checking out mlive.com's KalamaBrew section, as well as the ever informative Michigan Beer Guide, which you have probably come across at your favorite brewpub at some time or another.

In the end, I located the barley in Shepherd, Michigan at Turnwald Farms. Mike Turnwald was incredibly helpful, and truly shocked me with his high-tech combine.

The hops was grown by none other than Rex Halfpenny himself–publisher of the Michigan Beer Guide–in Leonard, Michigan. So many thanks again to everyone who helped along the way! You can see the finished series posted in the projects section of this site. Enjoy!

J.W. Murphy Guitars

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


I recently photographed several custom archtop guitars made by James Murphy of Fenton, Michigan. The guitars were really beautiful in person and had a long sustain to their sound. I am also working on a small website for him at jwmurphyguitars.com. I'll announce when it's published...

New Websites Published

Friday, October 17, 2008

I know this site is supposed to mainly focus on photography, but I still design websites here and there and www.letsrockcf.org is one of them. A while ago I told Emily, the founder of the Let's Rock CF Foundation, that I would do a site pro bono. However, my generosity turned to panic once I found out I had to design a Wordpress template (!) which I knew nothing about. Let's just say that it was a total learning experience since I had no idea how different Wordpress was from Blogger. Also her original version of Wordpress was pretty out of date, causing a ton of problems. Once I got it current things went a lot smoother.

Anyway, after many trials and tribulations, I am done with part one of the redesign. I finally got through the Wordpress ordeal and published the new opening page and blog design for the site. Part two will come down the road and will include a shopping page with merchandise, a page for online donations, and a page dedicated to the annual Just Let Me Breathe Benefit Concert, which is generally held at the Royal Oak Music Theater during the coldest week of winter.

On another note, I have also designed a site for my mom, who has re-entered the realtor world after working 15 years in new construction sales. Her site is listwithtrish.com. Some of my architectural photos are in use there, and I must take credit for the "area info" section. I compiled all of the links I could imagine worthwhile to the average person of Macomb/Oakland county, trying not to be obnoxiously cluttered. If you know of anything I missed, let me know. (FYI I know I didn't include the Lions, though...)
