AKPHOTO Launches New Denver Photographer Website!

AKPHOTO Launches New Denver Photographer Website!

With the new year upon us, and my WordPress website now over 2 years old (with minimal updates in that time frame), I felt it was time for a refresh with AKPHOTO.com, and completely redesigned my website for 2015! It took quite a bit of time going back through my portfolio and re-exporting all the images I wanted to used, but I think the end result was well worth it.

For this new AKPHOTO.com v2.0, I switched over to SquareSpace for hosting. While it is...

Canon 7D2 :: An Action Camera That's Great for Events?

Canon 7D2 :: An Action Camera That's Great for Events?

Canon's latest APS-C crop sensor camera, the 7D Mark II, has been praised for it's buffer and burst speed, and while it will make a killer sports, wildlife and action camera, I think the improved ISOs and extra reach of the crop sensor will make it a great tool as a low light events camera.

Check out my thoughts in the video below...

Your Life Extraordinary - Denver Commercial Photography

Earlier this year I was hired to photograph the owners and trainers at Your Life Extraordinary, Denver's premier corporate wellness and nutrition coaching provider. After scheduling access at a private gym, we spent time shooting some headshots and action shots with different pieces of equipment. I was personally thrilled with the results, but it's always exciting to see one's work incorporated into a final product, and I'm pleased to see my photos on display throughout the Your Life Extraordinary. Thanks again to YLE for having me photograph your team!!

Stryker Medical - Sales Team Corporate Headshots on Location

Stryker Medical - Sales Team Corporate Headshots on Location

Occassionally the call comes in for a big gig, and it's hard to be anything but excited. Photographing a lot of corporate headshots on location for a sales team is always fun; I really do enjoy meeting people, learning about their different businesses, and trying to make sure they convey their personality and style in their photos. But then there's always the twist that brings my blood-pressure to a new level. For example, a recent shoot I scheduled with Stryker Medical went down something like this: Stryker: "We're going to be in Denver this weekend for a conference; can you come out to our hotel near...

Presidential Debate at University of Denver :: The Spin Room

Photographing the Presidential Debate at the University of Denver last night was one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities you just can't pass up. When the word came in that my media credential had been approved, I have to admit that I was thrilled beyond belief. I spent the entire day on the DU campus, photographing the events surrounding the debate, even capturing some shots of the supporters and protesters along University and Evans. But getting inside the Spin Room and Media Center to see how things take place "behind the scenes" was a real treat. I got in with the media pool and snapped some shots of everybody that was down there, including President Obama's Senior Campaign Strategist David Axelrod, and former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani.

Check out some of the sample photos from this historical event, below:

Max Appel - Professional Headshot for Business Profile

Max Appel - Professional Headshot for Business Profile

Having worked with the University of Denver in the past for some of their event and teacher headshot photos, I was given the task of photographing Max Appel for an upcoming profile they were doing. Max Appel had attended DU, and with the success of his OrangeGlo and OxiClean products, the University was doing a profile on him for the Daniels College of Business Fall Business Review. This is a journal that has a circulation of approximately 40,000, and is provided to all existing students and alumni. Just having the chance to work with Max Appel, the founder of OxiClean and the guy who gave Bill Mays his first big break, was going to be a blast! 

The shoot took place at Max's offices in south Denver, and I was a bit surprised to find out that Max only had about 40 minutes available...

Cuvee Flight to Luxury Promo Shoot

I recently did a commercial shoot for JetLinx and Cuvee down at Centennial Airport to help promote their annual Flight to Luxury charity event. The event supports the Boys and Girls Club of Denver, and draws huge support from area donors. It was a privilege to be involved with this project, and photographing some of the guys and gals from the Boys and Girls Club, along with the CEOs in front of their planes was a real treat.
