Introducing the newest member of the family

Introducing Calvin! Calvin is a weimaraner lab mix and we adopted him from Saint Francis of Assissi Animal Shelter . We’re slowing introducing Lucy and him together and so far it seems to be going well. More photos and updates to come!

Hello, Steve…er I mean, Calvin. You’re quite the handsome little devil.

Pete

Such a good looking pup!

Becca

I can say firsthand that Calvin is uber cute and snuggly! Congrats!!

That’s one cute puppy! Welcome, Calvin!

Ann/Mike

He is small and certainly adorable! We know he will hold his own against our grand-daughter and our special gal, Lucy. Love ya all.

I like how Lucy (I’m assuming) is warily
sniffing the new pup. Very cute dogs, both!

Radlerin: Yes, she does have a habit of being wary. They’re getting along famously now, with only the occasional reprimand from Lucy to Calvin, because of course Lucy is still “much to mature for the likes of a puppy.”

But they’re playing, and it’s crazy to see Lucy essentially punch Calvin with one paw, sending him rolling, and in retaliation Calvin bite at her ears trying to hang on. She takes advantage of his weakness (his small size) and he takes advantage of hers. Very fun!

Nice shots as always! You have a great way of finding the most interesting angles…

Your skill continues to amaze me, truly an expert at capturing those moments and expressions. I’m so spoiled to get to see your talents on a regular basis :)

Are you going to take pictures at any of the MNSCS races this year?

katie

nice photos, scott! i really like the shots you got of the riders on the curved ramp, with their shadows on the wall behind.
looks like the event was made more fun for the riders this year!

Radlerin

i’m interested in whether you’ll be at
MNSCS as well, since I’ll likely do a few
of the races.

scott

Hey guys shooting the MNSCS will probably depend on how my schedule shakes out. I shoot a lot of weddings on Saturdays so that can really make me not wanna get out of bed on Sunday.

I’m hoping for sure to get out to the Spring Opener and shoot that and maybe volunteer some profits toward MORC.

The 3rd Lair

Last night Slim and I ventured over to the west side of the cities to go to the 3rd Lair skate park. One of the members on Morc had setup a bikers only night from 9 to 11pm. Having never photographed bmx street before I decided to bring my camera along. The place was a bit overwhelming with what must have been 50 riders using the small indoor facility. I was a bit nervous since I didn’t know the etiquette for shooting in a place like this but I got out my camera anyhow. I took a few photos but didn’t have as much success as I’d hoped. I think the key to shooting this kind of sport is to know one or two riders who can go out for a private session and that way you can work on getting your lights setup perfectly for the shot. My fly by the seat of my pants technique is below:)

Not bad photos for “flying by the seat of your pants!”

Do those boys’ mothers know they’re not wearing helmets?
:D

Fat Hands

I was wondering who was behind the lense that night. Nice shots!

the first two photos are of my ex boyfriend.

weiiiird. If you want to shoot dudes riding I can get you in contact with any of the bmxers you want since I was pretty heavily into that scene only a few months back.

Radlerin

Those pictures are awesome, seat o’ pants, or no!
Love the b/w.

Drinking Alone

looks like a party!

glad you’re keeping busy, me boy.

katie

that guy on the right looks like a stiff. maybe you shouldn’t invite him next time, cuz the other two look like they’re having a lot of fun…

scott

Yeah he didn’t even leave a tip!

Nice idea. Nice photo.

[...] Northern Brewer mentioned on their website that they were looking for photos to use in their catalog that showed off people home draft setups. I decided it was a perfect time to recreate my drinking alone photo to make it a bit more of a party. [...]
