College Carpentry Program http://www.lptimages.com/blog/2017/6/a-magazine-project

I've had a couple opportunities to tell the story of Bismarck State College's carpentry program in recent years. This time, the angle was especially unique. One of the students is also an artist and she made the tile used on the fireplace of the home they are building. The day I was there, the student featured and her classmates were cutting the tile and placing it. Pretty cool, Layn

Getting the Most Out of Your Photographer http://www.lptimages.com/blog/2017/1/PhotographerUse   Elgin Hospital Elgin Hospital

Are you considering hiring a photographer? Don't stop with head and shoulders images of your staff. Headshots will be great for use with press releases and on business cards, but are they the best images for use on your website or in advertising?  Consider having your photographer capture your staff at work. Environmental portraits show your customers what you do, helping to familiarize them with your business and the services you provide. Need help prioritizing your photographic needs, I'd be happy to visit with you to ensure you get exactly what you want. Layn

Professional head and shoulders images are a great way to help promote your business. The images can be used in advertising and on your website to introduce your staff to customers. The images are also great for using with press releases and on social media when sharing accomplishments like certifications your staff receives or when celebrating milestones. Knowing you and your staff makes your customers feel more at ease. And when your customers are more at ease, its a lot easier to make a sale. Layn

Takin' on BMX Racing http://www.lptimages.com/blog/2016/9/takin-on-bmx-racing Takin' On BMX Racing Takin' On BMX Racing
It's never to late for this photographer to learn some new tricks. I was asked to photograph BMX Racing this summer. I'm glad to take on a new challenge cause I'm one of those guys who's not happy shooting the exact same thing again and again and again. Even if I've photographed an activity or event for years, I always try to take a fresh approach and look for new angles. My first night out at Fastrax BMX, I spent most of my time observing, saw what the riders and fans were doing, and how things work. I was also watching to see what the light is doing. This is just a preview of what I've enjoyed shooting so far. If you wanna see more, they are online here.  Layn

A Graduation Story http://www.lptimages.com/blog/2016/7/a-graduation-story A Graduation Story A Graduation Story
I love photo stories. This one is the story of Bismarck State College's 2016 Graduation. The students getting ready, marching in together with the band playing and the choir singing, the presentation of diplomas. There are so many things going on and I want to capture as many different looks as I can get so they have images for social media, print media, or just images to hang on the wall. Layn

The Right Images for Promotions http://www.lptimages.com/blog/2016/7/the-right-images-for-promotions The Right Images for Promotions The Right Images for Promotions
My wife and I talk about promotions a lot. We can't help ourselves. Sharing information and telling stories, its what we do. And, having the right images helps tell those stories. In fact, I just read that people are 40 times more likely to see your social media posts if your post includes an image. I captured the image above to help with Dacotah Speedway's Drive to Survive  t-shirt sales. The one below conveys the message that discounted racing tickets are available at Cenex. When combined with text, both images make it easier to tell the story. Layn

This spring, I was asked to photograph the retirees for Bismarck State College's alumni magazine. We did them as environmental portraits, in their offices and classrooms, and in front of campus landmarks. I love this approach because it really brings the subjects to life.  Layn
