Let's Make a Splash...

This photo was a fun one to shoot.  While I can't give away all my secrets, I can say that it's five exposures put together.  Since joining TKP around five months ago, I've really enjoyed experimenting with high speed photography, and getting the chance to use it with clients like Lift Bridge and Steel Toe Breweries.  

I have a new food portfolio in the works, so stay tuned for more food images with a twist.  

Thanks for checking it out!  -JD Havens

Fire & Ice

I had a blast shooting both of these images, with a little help from both Nikki and Kevin of course!  Both images posed some unique challenges that took some real planning to figure out.  Like how to freeze a bottle of Smirnoff Ice in a large chunk of ice water without the beverage itself freezing!  Well, after a little research and some brainstorming, here are the results.  Hope you enjoy!

TKP Open House

We had a great time at our open house last night. The pulled pork & veggie tacos, prepared by Chef Terrance and beverages, poured by our bartender Marley Applebaum, were enjoyed by all.   

We featured beer from four local breweries (Badger Hill, Lift Bridge, Steel Toe and Excelsior), wine from Alexis Bailly Vineyard and the pork for the tacos was supplied by Tollefson Family Farms.

Drawing for winners

A raffle was held in support of Kids Cook, a non-profit teaching kids basic gardening, cooking and life-lesson skills in North Minneapolis. There were 11 winners that walk away with prints supplied by Wall Art Resource.

Thank you to everyone who made it a success!
