Norris Lake, TN : Bridge Jumpin

Last week I was on vacation at Norris Lake in Tennessee.  It was a great week filled with a lot of fun.  Wish I would have been there a little longer, so I could have taken more time to go and and shoot.  

These pictures were taken from a bridge right outside a cove, where our lake house was located.  Boats gather around this bridge every day and just kind of hang out... watch people jump off the bridge into the water and such.  When it gets towards evening, some of the locals come down and entertain onlookers with flips, and dives, and different jumping tricks.  It is actually pretty impressive, but it is what these kids have grown up doing. The kid in the second to last picture and the one in the backflip sequence were probably the best at flips.  They were both doing double backflips pretty easily. 

 We went and jumped two different nights... I didn't do a flip off... but looking back I wish I would have!  Give me a couple more days on that bridge and I promise I'll be doing some next level tricks!

I'll add more images of the trip to TN soon!

Erica: Senior Shoot

This is Erica, a senior at Liberty Center.  We had a shoot a few days ago, and though a wind decided to brew up out of nowhere, we made it work, and got some great shots!  She is a really good pole vaulter at LC, so I am excited to do some track shots of her sometime!

Studio Sharpe...

A lot of you guys from the area probably know this... but I thought I should announce it on my blog. The images on this post are of the future Tyler Sharpe Photography studio! We bought this building a few weeks ago, and have been working really hard on it.... the inside was completely filled with trash, and there are a ton of repairs that need to be done. Basically right now we are just finishing up gutting it, so we can entirely redo it. But, if you have a decent imagination, you can see that it is going to be completely awesome! I can't wait to get it up and running.

The property includes this small yard and barn in the back. It's working out great for storage of a bunch of things from inside the actual building right now. I will post pictures of the project and its progression. These were actually taken over a month ago already.

Nicole- Senior 2011

Here is Nicole, my senior ambassador for Napoleon. If you haven't noticed from pictures of other ambassadors, I am really fortunate to have some awesome and good looking seniors helping me out this year! I had a good time photographing Nicole, and I am looking forward to our next shoot!

Proudfoot Productions

Did a shoot earlier this week with Jill for some promo shots of her. She is an awesome videographer from the area, and also a friend of mine. We are also teaming up and will have a split ad in Skye Cinema in Wauseon. So make sure when you go see a movie that you get there in plenty of time to see our ad!
