Dean Worrell and the Walton College of Business | NWA Commercial Photographer

Commercial shoots, either for editorial or advertising purposes, are my favorite types of photoshoots. Earlier this spring, I did an editorial shoot for the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas‘ Spring 2012 alumni magazine. This biannual magazine updates alumni about the happenings of the college, and got a new look this year. The theme of this issue was “Faces & Spaces,” as the college recently received both a new dean and some renovated rooms. I ended up shooting the outgoing dean, Dan Worrell, as well as various rooms and even a department group shot. Doing commercial shoots like this one is a different ball game from weddings, nature, or any other photography — not just in the type of equipment used, but also in how you have to envision the outcome of the publication. Here’s a link to view the magazine. My photos can be found on: Front Cover, 2, 3 (top, Worrell, New Department), 5 (Worrell), 6-7 (all), 14-15 (spread), 16-17 (all), 20, and 35 (1, 12, 13, 15, 16). That’s 39 photos in all! Below are a couple of spreads. I’m looking forward to working with the college again. I shot the new dean, Dr. Jones, in June, and should be doing more photos soon. A great bunch to work with, and of course, it’s always nice to make the cover!   Image (c) 2012 Stephen Ironside / Ironside Photography (4)

LeAnne’s Bridals | NWA Wedding Photographer

Since I shot LeAnne and Aaron’s wedding last weekend, I can finally share LeAnne’s bridal portraits! We shot them in her hometown of Powhatan, Arkansas, in June. We stopped by the Powhatan Courthouse, then at a friend’s pond, and then at her parent’s house. It was hot, and there were lots of mosquitoes, but we ended up with some great images. (Thanks to my lovely wife for assisting!) Don’t forget to click through and see more images!

Kristen and Brandon’s Engagement + Wedding | NWA Wedding Photographer

A few months ago, I shot Kristen and Brandon’s engagement portraits on the University of Arkansas campus–and a few weeks ago, I shot their wedding at The Gardens on campus!  So, this is a combined post, with lots of images. I’ll still be doing Kristen’s bridal/trash the dress session in a few weeks, so be sure to check back for those. Congrats, you two!  

Shave the Planet | NWA Commercial Photographer

It’s time for a very summery post! While I don’t really care much for snow cones, I am quite fine with shooting them! I recently created some images for a very popular local snow cone stand called Shave the Planet...so popular, in fact, that loyal customers started stopping by for a snow cones before 10:00a.m. while we were shooting even though the stand wasn’t even open yet! They wanted some images for their new menu, to use on the side of their mobile trailer, for use on their website and Facebook, etc. Here are a few!
