Website Design: Law Firm Marketing

March 2019 update: This website is no longer online. Got a call from Dee Schiavelli earlier this week. Dee is a consultant who helps lawyers, accountants and other professional providers develop effective marketing strategies for their practices. I helped Dee build her website last year, and she needed some training in how to update it….

Construction Photography: Hillside Makeover

Spring is in the air, and that means that Tucson’s Watershed Management Group volunteers are back in action. Here, two shovel-wielding volunteers are helping a local family solve a steep problem… Seems that the west side of their property has a steep slope that does a convincing imitation of a waterfall when there’s a heavy…

Event Photography: Fords on Fourth

Yesterday morning, the Mustangs, Thunderbirds, Fairlanes, and T-birds lined up on Tucson’s Fourth Avenue. The occasion was Fords on Fourth, an all-Ford car show… Fords on Fourth offered a veritable banquet of treats for those who like to get under the hood… Or you could see the festivities reflected on this hood… If there’s one…

Website Design: Saluting Feminist Lawyers

September 2015 update: This website is no longer online. When I was a first-grader I had a fabulous teacher. I owe my love of reading to that lady, because she taught me how. Toward the end of the school year, she made an announcement that disappointed the whole class. She said that she wasn’t coming…

Bike-tography 105: Signs Along the Way

Was pedaling over to a Saturday afternoon class, and what should I encounter but the massive Interstate 10 widening project. This construction project is causing all sorts of headaches for the motoring public, and it’s supposed to continue until 2010. I-10’s Downtown Tucson worksite was chock-full of barricades, mud, heavy equipment, and other obstacles that…

Event Photography: Harambee 2008

This past Saturday, Tucson Parks and Recreation and the Northwest Neighborhood Center hosted the 24th annual Harambee Festival. Harambee (pronounced "ha-RAM-bay") was a coming together of cultures to celebrate Black History Month. It featured ethnic food, information on community resources, and plenty of local talent, including One Kingdom Image…

Event Photography: Safety Fair

This past Saturday, Tucson’s Northwest Neighborhood Center hosted a safety fair. This event included free Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching, courtesy of the Tucson Police Department: The idea behind VIN etching is to make your car a less attractive target to car thieves. (Alas, Arizona has quite a few of those.) Since windows are the…

Event Photography: Dillinger Days

In January 1934, the United States was in the throes of the Great Depression. Since the suffering was so widespread, driving fancy new cars and sporting the latest fashions was an easy way to stand out. Especially in a small town like Tucson, Arizona. Standing out was what notorious bank robber John Dillinger and his…

Bike-tography 102

Enjoyed the opportunity to have lunch at the Guadalajara Grill. It’s just north of one of Tucson’s most interesting neighborhoods, Richland Heights West. This neighborhood like a throwback to the Old West, only it’s right in the heart of the city. RHW residents are quite fond of their natural desert environment and their dirt roads,…

Animal Photography: My Border Collie is Smarter than your Camera

Ever seen that bumper sticker that proclaims that the driver’s Border Collie is smarter than your honor student? Well, be forewarned, they really are that bright. Take, for example, my parents’ Border Collie mix, Sandy. She has proven to be a formidable subject whenever a camera appears. Her specialty: being in such constant motion that…

Event Photography: Habitat for Humanity House Dedication

Yesterday brought an early Christmas present for Ann Hoy, her youngest daughter, Dani, and her grandson, Aiden. They became the proud owners of the 273rd house constructed by Habitat for Humanity Tucson: This occasion was marked by an official Habitat dedication, which included some really cool housewarming presents: I first met Ann when she came…

Bike-tography 101

I get around by bicycle. Most of my riding is utilitarian, ’round town stuff, but when I was younger, I biked all over the United States. While I was out on the road, my carrying space was limited. So was my strength. Which meant that I was forced to take a minimalist approach to photography….
