Can Anyone Guess Where This Was Taken


Take your pick, this one could have been taken at anyone of these three schools: (Northwestern, North Central College, Cornell)... If you've been following the blog, you definitely know where it was shot... This is a common site on all campuses we go to... Next time you leave the office to grab a Starbucks or Caribou (Kansas State) across campus, count how many other school shirts or hats you see as well as how many of your own school.. You'll be surprised.. Would love to know what you all come up with...

Johnny The Bagger

I don't make it a habit of posting movies or many other links, but after seeing The Simple Truths of Service, Inspired by Johnny the Bagger, I couldn't resist.. I've read a bunch of Blanchard's books in the past, I have no Idea, how this one slipped past me.. I will be making a trip to Barnes and Noble and/or Borders to pick this up tonight..

Enjoy, I've watched it several times and can't help but choking up each time.. Great spot for the season.

One More Trip This Semester!!


After three GRUELING months on the road, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.. We just arrived home from two days at the University of Tampa, well at least I think we did.. Or were we in Indianapolis, home of SquaredPeg??? Like I said it's been a GRUELING few months.. One more trip out to Northern California next week, and a much needed break for the Holidays..

Quick Update from Tampa


After a break from traveling last week, it is back to the grind it has been for the last three and a half months. At least this week is in the gorgeous Florida sun at the University of Tampa. We'll shoot all day here again today and back home tonight to our never ending pile of hard drives waiting to be processed.

Happy Thanksgiving


As the clock touches five on the East Coast, it is time to shut down the computer for at least the next 36 hours to celebrate Thanksgiving.

This is the last file I processed today.. Thought it was kinda neat. This was taken a few weeks back from a Chemistry lab at Imperial College in the UK..

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving..

Kansas State School Spirit



Just a quick little project from last week.. There is nothing like seeing all kinds of school spirit on campus.  Kansas State seems to have a ton of it.  These are straight out of the camera and not edited.. Funny as I was making this, saw a couple articles come across the RSS feed relating to style on campus..

This is an interesting one from the Washington Post and another from the NY Times talking about fashions unique to certain schools.. 



I would love to hear what everyone has to say in response to the two articles listed... We are on the frontlines at several dozen schools each year, and I have yet to see these unique styles and fashions unique to a particular school.. I continue to say "KIDS ARE KIDS ARE KIDS wherever they go"

Day Four in Big Twelve Country




What a week!!!! Two GREAT schools, with GREAT Kids and awesome school spirit.. We saw more ORANGE (Oklahoma State) and PURPLE (Kansas State) in four days than we've seen in our life... It's amazing what big time athletics will do for school spirit... Makes for some fun pictures and definitely adds a sense of place.

We fly home in a few hours for a much needed week off of travel.. It will however, be anyhting but a vacation as we hopefully will get caught up on the processing and delivery of thousands of images..

Stillwater Update


I know it's getting late in the season and seem a bit scatterbrained.. I know we're at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, but I saw this shot and had to take it.. We've got a few hours left here before we head up north to Kansas State. Gonna be a long night, six hours in the car or so..

Stillwater, OK - Day One






Here are a few from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK...

Gotta love Big 12 Country, lots of school spirit... We'll spend all day in Stillwater tomorrow and then off to Manhattan, Kansas and Kansas State tomorrow night.. Another Big 12 school, should be a lot of fun.

A Lookback at the First Nine Weeks This Fall




Here it is, just before midnight on Saturday and I am waiting for the dryer to finsh, so I can finish packing for the week.. We are off to Oklahoma State in a mere six hours for the first part of the week and then to Kansas State the latter part of the week.. All day and night Saturday was spent processing files and my eyes are killing me.. I was messing around with some files in between DVD burning and processing, and realized how FAST this Fall semester has gone.... It felt like just yesterday we were at Suffolk University (the first time), and in fact that was August 20th, the start of this grueling stretch of Fall Shooting.. It has been non-stop, starting on the extreme East Coast, then the Extreme West Coast, a bunch in the Midwest, then the Southeast, then the Southwest, then across the pond and back, this week to the plains (I think that's what OK, and KS would be considered anyway), any natives out there please correct me if i'm wrong.

Anyway enough of that, as I was saying before I got off task, I was looking at some files that were posted on the Blog and Flickr from August 20th to this past Thursday, and decided to put a page together from those images in no particular order..

Please have a look at them HERE and let us know what you think. Most nights, we would try and go through and pick out a bunch, but there are several days that we were just plain beat, or didn't have time because we were too busy trying to catch a plane or hopping in a car and driving 400 miles to our next shoot the following day.

Enjoy.....

College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA




Here are some from our shoot at the lovely College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA yesterday.. Once again a great feeling: working all day and getting home in time to watch TV on my own couch (like normal people).. Processing the next couple of days and then off to Stillwater OK and Oklahoma State University..

On Location and At Home the Same Day




After being on the road for the majority of the last eleven weeks, this week has been kind of odd.. Yesterday we spent the day at Suffolk University in Boston, the best thing about it was that I was on my couch watching TV by 8:00 pm, that was pretty cool.. We have to enjoy it while it lasts, because it starts all over again on Sunday as we head to Oklahoma and Kansas for a week.. Tomorrow we will be at Holy Cross in Worcester and then a few days in the office to pick away at the small mountain of hard drives waiting to be processed.
