Stribling Inc

Fletcher McQueen, Logistics Director with Stribling Inc, recently contacted me needing images of their facility. They co-pack, warehouse and distribute products for companies such as Walmart, Sam's and Tyson to name a few. Walking through the 260,000sqft warehouse and discussing his goal for the images, he shared with me some things that were would be happening on the day of photography and an example of one thing they do. They had a large quantity of shoes come in bound for Walmart Stores. It was Stribling's responsibility to unbox them and repackage into a display box for the stores, then they put those boxes on pallets bound for their destination. That day they did 500 pallets with over 300 pairs of shoes per pallet. I was impressed with the workflow from beginning to end. This facility was packed full of flat boxes yet to be assembled, many friends likened it to the warehouse from "Indiana Jones". A fun part of the project was being able to use the sicssor lift to get the images from above to show depth.

The exterior was a bit time consuming behind the computer, as you can see, being that it's January, it gives a lifeless look, not good for marketing. So I go in and meticulously add grass and trees in with the trick to make it realistic with lighting angles and shadows.

The sad thing is, they had already had photography from another 'photographer' and were very displeased with the results, his quote: "You get what you pay for". This cost them even more by having to have the photos done a second time. This reminded me of a quote by Red Adair "If you think it's expensive to hire a professional, wait till you hire an amateur". I've worked many years, and continue to, perfect, hone and improve the photography I offer my valued clients whether the commercial photography is architecture, product, food, headshots or corporate photography of any kind. I want the best for them to help them improve their marketing and profits.

Celebrate Magazine 15th Anniversary

Celebrate Arkansas magazine recently 'celebrated' 15 years of success, what a great accomplishment to a great staff and publication! I remember several years ago, the late Greg Ogden, at the time owner of Athletic World Advertising, coming to me to ask to photograph the second issue that would feature JB & Johnell Hunt, I jumped at the chance simply to meet the Hunts and also be a part of the magazine. The photo was in the winter at a floral business that also carried Christmas trees, it was a small store and VERY crowded. I had to put them in a corner between two Christmas trees with barely enough space for lights and I was about 4 feet from them, but I got the photo and it was on the cover. The thing I remember through it all was how nice, polite and down to earth both JB and Johnell were throughout the session. Through the years, I've crossed paths with them on occasion and learned, that's just who they are, despite their great success and fortunes, they treated everyone with respect and kindness, their great fortune never went to their heads.

Fast forward 15 years, I've been fortunate to photograph and meet many very successful business people and entrepreneurs through out NW Arkansas including CEOs, Governors and VIPs in the community. I've had the opportunity to take create images for content and covers on locations such as SAMs HQ, Tyson HQ and the Governor's mansion in Little Rock just to name a few.
Congratulations Celebrate Arkansas magazine and here's to many more decades of success!

Tennessee Aerial Harvesting

The perspective a drone can give is mesmerizing and can give a larger sense of appreciation for the beauty of the world we are blessed with. I was born and raised in a small town of Alamo Tennessee (west TN) up until I moved to Arkansas in 1998. All the time there, I was around farming and lived on a farm. Whether cotton picking, harvesting corn, soybeans, etc, I always saw the process from the ground perspective and while it was always a great view, especially when the cotton bloomed, it was always the same view.

On a recent visit to Tennessee, I had the chance to create drone aerial images of the corn harvesting. To see not only the fields being harvested from the drone's perspective, but also see the landscape in the background to give the world perspective, was inspiring to say the least.
