I took Mark Zimmerman’s first and only other Night Photography class at UCO a few years ago now. It was easily one of my favorite classes in college, not to mention I made some of my best friends (Clifton, Jarrett, and Jon) during our outings to photograph Oklahoma in the wee hours of the morning. If these interest you, take a look back through past blog posts, as the guys and I have met up several times since the first class for Night Photography reunions.

We found out that Mark was planning on bringing the class back as a summer intersession class, so we tagged along to a cool property in Arcadia, Oklahoma and revisited some subjects that we shot several years ago. Here are a few of my favorites from our visit.

I thought I was done with WPPI, but I completely forgot about the roll of film I shot in my Holga in Vegas! During my recent trip to New York (which I will blog about soon), I shot mostly film. When I developed them, I found a rogue roll from a few months earlier. As Holga goes, the images produced are very unpredictable, which is all the fun! Enjoy!

Most of our time at WPPI was consumed with rushing around to classes and browsing the trade show, but toward the end of our trip, we had time built in to explore Las Vegas and some surrounding areas and attractions. (Unfortunately Carly had to fly home before this part.)

The Neon Boneyard Sign Museum is easily my favorite place in Las Vegas. They are an organization that rescues and sometimes restores retired neon signs. It’s an expensive endeavor, so to fund it, they give guided history tours through the sign yard. They also allow client shoots there which I’d love to have the opportunity to do- so if anyone wants book a shoot in this location, you’ll have the coolest pictures around! It would be awesome for engagements, bridals, band promos, etc. In fact, this has been a music video location for the likes of Jimmy Eat World, The Killers, and more! Contact me for destination shoot pricing! The photo of me was snapped by Catie Bartlett.








After our tour, Lisa, Catie, and I decided to hang around downtown Las Vegas and see what else we could take pictures of. It was a really cool area, and we landed in front of a wall with a fun pattern. Below are some more Lensbaby photos, as well as various shots from the day. Photo of me by Catie Bartlett.
