Over the summer we have been working with Scott Flatt, our friend and head basketball coach at Covenant Christian High School, on a special project to transform their locker room. In addition to sprucing up the walls, we wanted something that would inspire and motivate the team, as they enter and exit the locker room.

Starting this summer we tested a number of different products and worked on a number of different design ideas. We landed on our final design on Tuesday. Wednesday, we ordered approximately 35 different images to use within the space. To my surprise they arrived on Thursday and we spent a few hours this morning transforming the space. Below are what it looks like now along with a few videos of the new space.

As we alluded to in our recent announcement about our new website and business, it has been a very busy summer.

We have spent the majority of the summer working on getting our business in a position to better serve our customers and on a plan to transform it into everything we believe it can be.

We haven’t posted many images on social media but from a photography standpoint took a few breaks to photograph and to try new techniques.

I got very involved in my photography club, The Digital Photo Guild. If you are interested in joining us, please let me know or follow us on Facebook. Our guild spent part of the summer working on entering work in the exhibition at the Indiana State Fair, our racing themed exhibition at the Plainfield Library, planning a few fall outings, and learning from each other in our meetings. Personally, I put together a presentation on useful photography applications, which we will continue to review in greater depth in December’s meeting. We also applied what we learned in my presentation in an astrophotography outing at the end of September. We are planning another outing before the Milky Way disappears from our hemisphere at the end of October.

I was also able to take my niece on an afternoon and evening photography shoot where we went to multiple locations to take nature photos of everything from birds, snakes, dragonflies, and landscapes.

I also spent an evening shooting at the Indiana State Fair with one of my friends from the photo guild.

Now that we are relaunching, I will start to focus more of my effort back on editing and posting photos on our photo site while continuing to improve our website and business.

Thank you all for your patience as we move through this journey together.

A Leap of Faith…..

A leap of faith in 2009 started a major life transformation for me and my family. I was offered an opportunity to start a side business which would allow me to stretch myself personally and my photography skills.

Thanks to everyone who has commissioned or purchased images from us, we were blessed that our leap of faith continued to expand over the past 10 years as I balanced a full-time job along with our side business. We are blessed and extremely grateful to all of you!!

Our lives can be defined by a number of leaps of faith. Every time we listen to God and allow him to guide us through these moments, we are blessed by his favor. Recently another opportunity presented itself to allow us to take another significant leap of faith by expanding our business into a full-time venture.

What’s Next?

These past six months have been spent in prayer, deep thought, and putting everything we had collected in our heads, from conferences and webinars, on Post-It notes, notes in our phone, email drafts, scribbles, and any other way you can jot down ideas and evolving them into a business plan, a new website, and expanded business partnerships and product lines.

When the time was needed to step away from all the planning I was able to teach photography techniques, take additional training, try a few new photography techniques and implement new business practices.

What you are seeing here is only the beginning of our new venture and leap of faith.

We would love your feedback on this new venture and would love to serve your photography needs. We look forward to working with you!

Blessings, Rick
