Although these are two separate photos used by different companies, they're related.  It was pretty cool starting off 2018 with my Wisconsin hometown using these photos for their 2018-2019 Manitowoc Area telephone book AND Yellow Pages!  A huge thank you to Yellow Book and Yellow Pages as well as the cities of Manitowoc and Two Rivers, Wisconsin for using my photos!  

This was taken when I went home during summer of 2016, this location was actually a backup plan. After getting mosquito bites in places I didn't know I had while shooting the lighthouse in Two Rivers, WI, I left for Neshotah Beach in hopes of not getting up early for nothing. It worked out and proved why you should always have a plan!

Although this photo looks like summer, it's actually a winter photo from December 2017.  It was also the first time I shot in actual cold weather, it was -17 degrees and I set up my tripod in a snowbank, five minutes later my fingers couldn't feel the touch screen and the camera battery was just about gone.  The photo has been flipped horizontally from the original.

I love to try to capture different angles while taking photos at the White House, it's pretty difficult to do considering how much it's been photographed...  Thank you to The Regulatory Review for using this on April 16, 2018 for an article entitled "Can President Trump Get Rid of Robert Mueller?"
