Call for Photo Assistants!

I'm currently looking for photo assistants to help on portrait and wedding shoots. Know anyone who might be interested? Here's the scoop!

What I need:

- people who are willing to help out on shoots, mostly by handling and carrying gear

What you get:

- this isn't a paying gig. But you'll take away a ton of hands-on learning and the experience of working with a full-time photographer

It's really that simple. My lighting ideas are getting bigger and my back can only take so much abuse. So...I'm looking for people who want to have fun on photo shoots while learning how lighting and image making work, as well as how I interact with clients to create unique pictures.

You're welcome to help as much or as little as your time and desire allow. For each shoot, I'll send an email to a list of assistants, and it will be first come, first served.

After the shoot is over and the pictures are edited, we can talk about the pictures and I'll answer any and all of your questions. A lot of photographers don't like sharing their so-called "trade secrets" but I feel that sharing is the best way to improve our artistic community. If you (or someone you know) might be interested, zip me an email (nathan@40nightscreative) or call 402-730-2568. - Nathan

Nikki & Jake | Portraits in Southeast Nebraska

Nikki and Jake are actually from Missouri, but they were visiting Lincoln to see family. Nikki's brother, Eric, will be getting married here in a couple of weeks...and I'll be taking the pictures. Funny how things start to tie together after a few years of taking pictures non-stop. In any case, we took a whirlwind tour around downtown and made some fun images. Here are a few outtakes.

Charleigh | Kid Pictures in Lincoln!

We met a wonderful family for a short portrait session on a recent Sunday morning. Charleigh is now 16 months old and just as cute as you'd expect. Here are a few images from our time together.

Max & Harper | Child Portraits in Lincoln, NE

My friends Rhett and Renee grabbed the kiddos last week and we headed to the park. It was rather...steamy...outside. That meant I'd probably only have a few minutes before the kids starting melting down, figuratively and literally. So, we played for about 15 minutes and then called it good. Here are few worth sharing.

Adam & Carrie | Engagement Pictures in Omaha

I have been a very bad blogger lately, but I'm trying to catch up. Here are a few outtakes from my session with Adam and Carrie in Omaha. This shoot...well, it was something else. First, we visited Hummel Park (not my idea) and overheard a rather violent-sounding screaming match. We decided to vacate the premises. Then we managed to miss part of an epic sunset...and in spite of it all, we wound up with a great set of images, some of which Carrie doesn't want me to share with the general public. So, the best work stays under wraps. Still, there are some fun ones I can share from this hilariously awesome outing. Can't wait to see these two in the fall.

Jason & Annie | A Wedding in Lincoln, NE

Jason and Annie took over The Knolls recently for their wedding reception. A day that started windy (and at some points, rainy) suddenly turned into a gorgeous night. We took full advantage of the great weather...and the golf course. It was a heck of a night.
