Wife and I took Daughter to see the Curious George movie last night. It wasn't quite the same as my favorite childhood book (Where's the gun? No jail? Who is Ted?) but I was happy that they didn't resort to trash humor to make it funny.

Web Site Overhaul in the Works

My Web site overhaul is in the works. I'm making my final wedding portfolio picks, and getting them Web ready. We have some great images from 2005 that I am itching to show the World Wide.

Another big move is that I will be using for all my clients Web galleries. This will make images faster to load and easier to navigate than the previous solution. As a bonus to wedding clients who had Web sites before, we will be extending your free Web sites by moving them to our new client sharing site: It will take a few weeks to get it all done, so keep checking.

Happy 20th, Pops

20 years and two days ago, my father had a triple bypass. Thanks to God and the doctors for keeping him around for us.

Happy 20th, Pops.

Sig Line

I read a great sig line on a Web board today:
"If God didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat."

Reminds me of another one:
"I am a member of PETA: People for Eating Tasty Animals."

I'm getting hungry for steak.

Operation Photo Rescue

Take a look at the Operation Photo Rescue blog.

I'm restoring a picture of a guy holding a salmon...

The Sign of a Good Meeting

I had a meeting with a new client (at least I hope they become a new client) last week. It's a multi-national corporation that is hosting their annual employee training and awards conference in the Atlanta area. I knew it was going to be a good meeting when I walked into the hotel where the advance team was staying and I saw a Starbucks sign.

Mmmm. Coffee. Too bad they weren't brewing Sumatra.

Dead of Winter

This picture is from last week's "GOYA," an acronym a friend of mine made up to encourage himself to get out of his photography studio and take pictures. Sounds odd doesn't it? It makes perfect sense to photographers. We make photography our profession because we love it, then we spend all of our time in the office doing everything but making pictures. I am typing this at 6:07 AM, after an all-nighter editing a wedding, ordering prints from two portrait sessions, figuring out a new flash system to use a weddings this year, and figuring my GA sales tax. Sales tax, ugh, why did I sell so many prints around Christmas?

Anyhow, GOYA stands for something my mother wouldn't appreciate, but it is loosely translated "Get off your posterior." This little thing Zack started on a whim looks like it's going to become something. There are already quite a few photographers participating and a possibility of a gallery show coming from it.

My photos can be seen here.

Zack's main GOYA page is here.
