A graduation story

I love photo stories. This one is the story of Bismarck State College's 2016 Graduation. The students getting ready, marching in together with the band playing and the choir singing, the presentation of diplomas. There are so many things going on and I want to capture as many different looks as I can get so they have images for social media, print media, or just images to hang on the wall. Layn

Pet Portraiture

When your pet is considered to be a member of the family, they should have their portrait done as well. Show 'em some love. Layn

The Right Images for Promotions

My wife and I talk about promotions a lot. We can't help ourselves. Sharing information and telling stories, its what we do. And, having the right images helps tell those stories. In fact, I just read that people are 40 times more likely to see your social media posts if your post includes an image. I captured the image above to help with Dacotah Speedway's Drive to Survive  t-shirt sales. The one below conveys the message that discounted racing tickets are available at Cenex.  Layn

BSC Retiree Shoot


This spring, I was asked to photograph the retirees for Bismarck State College's alumni magazine. We did them as environmental portraits, in their offices and classrooms, and in front of campus landmarks. I love this approach because it really brings the subjects to life.  Layn

Racing Session Goes Rogue

The plan was to photograph the race car for this client and when I was finishing up I told them to step in.  Why not? They were already here.  Why not expand the session and make a nice memory.  Layn
