Legacy Bank - Springdale AR

Legacy Bank asked me to create several images for their 2016 marketing campaign. These images included several scenes around NW Arkansas as well as 5 of their bank locations. I always enjoy the twilight architectural images, they take a LOT longer but they contain so much of a WOW factor. That WOW factor translates into more attention to the marketing and advertising which increases the effectiveness of the advertising. One bank in particular in Springdale, their main branch, was a challenge but at the same time, a challenge I enjoyed and they really appreciated.

The difference is amazing! The goal is to create an image void of obstructions to completely focus on the building, the primary focus of the shoot.

Walmart Museum Cover - Celebrate Arkansas

The first week of December I had the opportunity to photograph these three ladies on the roof of the Walmart Museum. Due to these ladies extreme schedules, the shoot took place at 7am, setting up at 6:30. It was very cold with frost on the roof, but it turned out great! While I was setting up in near darkness, it was as if someone bumped up the dim switch when the sun made a brief appearance. Just as the sunrise was taking place the ladies were all ready and we captured this image! These ladies are Judith McKenna, Rosalind Brewer and Michelle Gloeckler, read the article in the link below to find out more of these ladies named three of Fortune's 50 most powerful women in business.

This particular shoot was a blessing for two reasons. First, these ladies, who all work for Walmart Home Office, have very busy schedules in addition to their travels. They were all able to make it at this time. Second, which adds to the first, it had been raining for 5 straight days leading up to this shoot, then this morning, the skies cleared making available perfect conditions for this portrait for the January 2016 cover.
