Passion For Golf

Walter Ousley is an emerging golfer who uses photos and video of himself to assess his golf game.  I photographed him on several occasions during the summer and fall of 2013.  He shoots in the 87-92 range after only 3 years of immersing himself in the game.  Quite a talented golfer!  I made a video of Walter’s game.  See the link below.

Kernel Seasonings

Chuck Wingard of Tree Towns Reprograpics runs a state-of-the-art digital printing company.  A group of movie theaters needed large color posters of popcorn seasoning products – and quickly.  I photographed the project from beginning to end and made a video of the process.

Zaros at the Michigan Shore

Ann and Peter Guild made their annual trip to the Michigan lake shore.  Zaros is their German Shepherd who loves to roam on the beach.  He is well trained and full of energy.  His idea of a good time  is to chase the tennis ball, dive into the water and roll in the sand.

Brothers Stick Together

Zachary, Wesley and Liam are 3 brothers who really do things together.  I photographed them at their local park and at the Naperville Easter Seals site in mid May 2013.  They have fun moments while getting therapy to improve their mobility.

They were featured in the annual Easter Seals photo display that was unveiled in October 2013.  Their picture hangs in the lobby of the Villa Park office.

Easter Seals 5K Run/Walk

Easter Seals DuPage and Fox Valley hosts a fund raising 5K Run/Walk in the spring each year.  The 2013 event drew hundreds of people on an early Saturday morning,  May 4th,  to the Villa Park location.

The crowd includes serious runners – along with families who push babies in strollers, and long time supporters who walk the course.  The weather was favorable and the spirits were high.
