As in thirty years since I picked up that camera and never let go of it, so yea I still take pictures. This is a picture of a slightly used dog I photographed in my on-location studio as a gift to the Denver Dumb Friends League, they are the #1 leading rescue shelter.
This dogs name is Sadie and we own this dog because my wife has a funny sense of humor when it comes to animals.
City of Dacono, Colorado
My work was recently published in i25 Corridor community magazine. The photographs we created were a collaborative effort working with a local Studio Six Branding agency out of Longmont and several volunteers. Our goal was to create a high energy, fun and elevated look for the city of Dacono in effort to highlight the town.
My kids have also been used as models and this is only a very brief preview of what is still to come.
Watch out city of Dacono, you’re about to get a makeover!
LULU’s Barking BBQ
It does not happen very often for me to be featured while working, but that is the luxury of having assistant. LULU’s Barking BBQ is a private fundraising event in Castle Pines, coordinated by Kelli with Kelli Kindel Events where each year a 100% of the proceeds, and I mean 100% of it benefit our four legged friends. In this photo I’m seen photographing the famous Perini Ranch buffalo gap steak, with John Montgomery of Wild West Beef Sticks who’s just sliced it and is getting ready to arrange it on the plate. This is the real deal Cowboy food that is often catered at the White House, yup! and many have flown to Texas just to have this stuff, so if you are ever near Buffalo Gap Texas you got to stop by.
On location in Dacono
You may have seen me recently on-locations around Carbon Valley in Dacono Colorado, during the National Night Out with movie night at the park and Carbon Valley Music Festival. I have been very fortunate to get hired by local designer Traci Jones @ Studio Six Branding out of Longmont to create identity defining photography for the city of Dacono.
Traci has this amazing ability to put together the best team and they are really well coordinated with clear direction of where we’re going. In the above photo I was caught directing our young models who have just arrived on the set.
I noticed quite a few of my friends and customers picking up photography as a hobby and even profession and there is a good reason for that; There is a photographer hidden in many of us. If you ended up with a digital SLR this Christmas and need the know how; below is a list of extremely helpful sites to get you started. There is also a list of few exceptional photographers who inspire me.
Thank you all who hired me this year, it’s been truly a wonderful experience getting to know you and sharing photography with you. This relationship enables me to take care of my family and for the first time in 15 years allowed me to take a trip to Poland and see my godmother, my cousins and grandma. It was an unforgettable experience, so much time has passed between now and then that I did not image I would ever see them again. Much appreciated.
It’s been over a year since I decided to give up on a printing company pictage which was based out of California. I made a switch to shootproof for a number of reasons; the main reason is that shootproof uses 3 print labs and one of them PRO DPI is based here in Denver. This is a huge + because it means that your prints arrive with in a day or two from the time you order; when I order pro quality I have them in hand the next day. Let’s not confuse PRO DPI with your general available to everyone printing services which are sloppy and don’t offer professional grade printing papers. PRO DPI‘s quality, color, sharpness, longevity and consistency is unmatched and Colorado local. Please ask me about professional print prices; and No they are not ridiculously overpriced.
Pictures above showcase the print wrap CD case which you may receive as part of your wedding package.
Scott Houck | Photographer
One thing about photographers is that there are many of us out there, but there is not one out there like Scott.
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Scott Houck, he’s my favorite local photographer in Denver. If you have ever hired Walder Photography to cover your event, there is a good chance Scott was there. Scott and I we go way back, we both learn and push each other to success, he’s an educator and an amazing portrait photographer. One thing that bothers me about him is that he does not show much of his amazing work and he does not shoot enough with me. If you are ever looking for a dream team to cover your event or corporate portraits don’t hesitate to contact us, we’ll make you look great.
360 degree panos
Back in 2000 I had a pleasure to work on a one of a kind project which would help people with disabilities get around Winter Park and Pepsi Center. The primary objective was to develop a virtual reality tour which included 360 degree panoramas of the entire Winter Park and Pepsi Center inside out. My job was to manage, capture and to process all of the photography necessary for the project.
Today I decided to resurrect a few of the nicer panoramas that were captured. These panos are corrected and processed except for the final stitching which would result in a 360 QTVR pano. The camera that was used to capture this was called the panoscan which worked like a scanner on a tripod which would turn 360 degree to capture the entire image.
