Lawrence Magazine

Cocktail Time!

For the winter issue of Lawrence Magazine, I photographed three local bartenders making their own specialty cocktails. I taste tested the drinks at the end of each photoshoot and gave all three the “B. Goodman thumbs up”. It was a tough assignment, but I managed. Click an image to see the spread.

Magazine Time!

I recently had a couple of cover shoots for two local magazines, Lawrence Magazine and Discover Eudora. The shoot for Lawrence Magazine featured three local-ish bartenders who have created their own special cocktails. I visited J. Wilson’s restaurant, Ladybird Diner, and the super cool/funky Myers Hotel in Tonganoxie, KS. Kate from the Myers Hotel is featured on the cover and she made a delicious Smoky Sage Carrot Margarita. She actually smoked the sage in the glass before adding all the fixings(upside down glass with the smoke in the photo below)…and it really put that Marg over the top! Big perk to this assignment was getting to sample all of the drinks…

For Discover Eudora I got to spend some time hanging with the Eudora Fire Department. They just got a brand spankin’ new fire truck and I even got to sit in it. It’s a volunteer fire department and they were super nice and accommodating. Firefighter Genevieve was adorable and I’m glad she made it to the cover.

One more bonus cover was for the Kaw Valley Farm Tour booklet that features a pretty stellar image I shot of one handsome chicken.

Tearsheet Roundup!

Spring was busy around here and now that the dog days of summer have set in, I thought I'd share some of the images of mine that have recently been published in print and online.  Spring had me shooting everything from llamas and traveling cats, to little James Naismiths and all girl rock bands.  The images were published in Kansas magazines, local print ads and even on French websites.  check it out.

Best of Lawrence Magazine Tearsheets

A couple of months back, Sunflower Publishing scheduled a shoot in my studio, for the Best of Lawrence Magazine.  It was supposed to feature images of a pooch named Duke.  He was a sweet guy, but unfortunately Duke couldn't handle the pressures of being the Lawrence top dog model.  Fortunately, my sweet girl Millie has loads of experience under the bright lights and was willing to sit in for Duke.  An hour and 10 Milkbones later, we had all of the images shot for each opening section of the magazine.  Millie is the queen of my studio and the cover shot captures her "I'm the only dog you should be petting" attitude.

I also photographed a number of the Lawrence Magazine Choice sections and met some really nice folks along the way.  Thanks to Sunflower Publishing for the great project!
