  1. 2017-06-16-FR @ 12:49 p.m. CST. Best Of Instagram page has been updated.
  2. 2017-06-15-TH @ 4:30 p.m. CST. – It has been awhile since I updated this page and I’m sorry about that to anyone who’s been checking lately. Just want to let everyone know that I am getting lots of work done on my magazine. I have over 500 photos edited for the first issue so far. I am considering pricing as I’m working on it, and I am hoping to find some time to add another gallery to my website soon. In the meantime, please follow me on instagram @ahbmag as that is where I am doing my photography promotion at the most currently. I hope you are having a great summer so far.
  3. 2017-05-26-FR @ 9:25 p.m. CST. – Just updated the Quotes page.
  4. 2017-05-19-FR @ 6:52 p.m. CST. – I’ve recently added a new locations page on site. It’s mostly a personal page for myself where I can list all the locations around the lakes I visit and what days I’ve been. I thought it would be something neat to keep up with, if for nothing else than just to have the info. I also have another photo gallery coming to the site soon. It’s another back yard cloud gazing gallery of photos I took yesterday. It will be a couple of days before I get the pictures posted because I have used up my hotspot data limit for this month and can’t get online with my laptop unless I take it somewhere for free wi-fi, and I do not feel like hauling my laptop out today. So bear with me a couple of days and I will get that gallery up soon.
  5. 2017-05-15-MO @ 2:55 p.m. CST.Gallery #9 has been added. It’s a gallery of 17 photos I took while driving home on I-85 this morning, you know, just to keep some content flowing on the blog.
  6. 2017-05-13-SA @ 7:03 p.m. CST. – A new photo gallery has been added. Gallery #8, 12 photos taken during my drive from home to the DG store down the road for some groceries today.

  8. 2017-05-12-FR @ 10:37 p.m. CST. – I have created and posted my first list page, Best Of Instagram. It is where I’ll be adding links to my favorite people and websites to follow on instagram.
  9. 2017-05-09-TU @ 2:14 a.m. CST. – New quotes I found listed on the quotes page.
  10. 2017-05-09-TU @ 12:21 a.m. CST. – It has been awhile since I’ve updated my website. I apologize. I have posted the photo of the month for May 2017. Please see the front page if you haven’t already.
  11. 2017-04-28-FR @ 8:17 a.m. CST. – I know that it has been a few days since I’ve made any updates, but I am happy to announce that I have finished editing all of the photos for the driving photos section of my magazine’s first issue. This morning I will be working on my magazine’s front cover and possibly start building the document. After that I will start editing photos for the nature and people section. I am excited to have gotten this far with my first issue of A Happy Boy Magazine (AHB-MAG). It’s going to be big. There’s 160+ driving photos alone, and all photos throughout the magazine will be full page displays.
  12. 2017-04-25-TU @ 10:17 a.m. CST. – Shout out to @andrewgalt for liking several of my photos on instagram today. I will make more shout outs as time permits, but please know I appreciate all the attention given to my work from my fans. You can find/follow me on instagram too @ahbmag and thanks as always for your support and feedback.
  13. 2017-04-24-MO @ 6:26 a.m. CST. – In regards to promoting my photography, I have made a decision this morning that doing a “photo of the day” on my website doesn’t seem to be something I can fully commit to doing due to my busy schedule. I just don’t have the time or motivation to sit down at my computer every day to post a photo to my blog, especially when most of the photos I post come from a series of photos from a particular day. I think I would rather stick to posting one or two galleries on my website each week, and post photos on instagram more often because it is much easier to do that. This will free up a lot of time for me to focus on editing photos for my magazine. So, I will leave all the photo of the day posts on the blog that are there already for now, but I won’t be posting anymore, at least not until I see if my new plan works out better. Also I will be adding an “about” page and rewriting/organizing the home page this week as time permits.
  14. 2017-04-23-SU @ 6:29 a.m. CST. – I just snapped some great photos of the sunrise this morning including some nice shots of a double rainbow. I plan to post an upcoming free preview gallery of the series as soon as I can and I will post a photo of the double rainbow later today.

  18. 2017-04-21-FR @ 7:13 p.m. CST. – Just posted on my instagram. Tonight’s sunset in my back yard at 7:00 p.m. CST. I have 10 photos taken of this and will put them up in a gallery on my website as soon as I can. I think there’s going to be a lot of sunrise, and sunset galleries posted over this summer. For me it’s always nice to have a record of what these events looked like from one day to the next if they are interesting. Tonight I plan on working on some photo edits for my magazine. I don’t have too much left to go on that for the driving photos section. I’m still pushing for an October release, but things could change and it might get done sooner. Thanks again as always for following me and I hope you like this photo

  22. 2017-04-21-FR @ 4:49 a.m. CST – I’ve temporarily disconnected my publicize setting from my blog that updates my facebook page. This was done because I’m planning to add some pages soon that I don’t need to have automatically updated to facebook, and will be trying to catch up on my photo of the day posts as well. I will simply update my facebook page with new posts on my website as needed until I get all of the work caught up on that I need to and then will reconnect the automatic update feature. I promise if you are following my facebook page, you won’t miss anything important.
