Congrats, Aim! With a landslide of fan votes this photo wins the First Friday Fashion (fail) contest! Thanks to all our friends & fans on facebook and all who came out to model! Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for more fashionable contests ahead! -eB
Last Friday, September 2nd, I set up shop downtown at Generic & invited shoppers to put together a favorite outfit of their best style (or worst, depending on fashion taste) and model it for a mini-session. The results were no less crazy than I expected. Come take a look and vote for your favorite on our Facebook page. The photo with →
Just over 2 years ago I added a Drobo to our wedding photography workflow and backup strategy. (Read the original writeup here). I just fed it another pair of 1 terabyte hard drive this month and figured it would make a good time to share a review of its performance over the last 2 years of photography work and backup →
It just hit me this week and we now have 4 days left till our daughter Madeline's birth! With weekend events to photograph and mix, lots of final touches to the house, early Thanksgiving dinner (yay!), and scheduled c-section with hospital recovery in the coming week I wanted to put a notice out early to let everybody know I might be →
Thank you, AT&T DSL service and GoDaddy web hosting for your unpredicted reminder to back up everything powered by your companies' web services. Seems there was some web router problem that blocked a large percentage of AT&T DSL customers from viewing our site for a good portion of Tuesday. (How specific, right?) What it meant on my side of things →
This Saturday, November 14th is the Underground Cafe's final concert. After 8 years of local live music, concerts, and friendships the Underground Cafe is celebrating one last show on the South Side of South Bend. If you know me even a little you know this has been my second home and second family since it's beginning. My wife Sara was one →
Congrats to my little sis Genna on passing her state certification last week! Way to go on all your hard work studying to become a licensed stylist! Genna rocked the 1940s styles in Caroline & Josh's "Kissing the War Goodbye" engagement session, can't wait to see her work on upcoming shoots too! We're proud of you! - Eric, Sara, Adrian and Niece Bu
Disclaimer: I'm no web design guru. I maintain our regular site, this blog, and some side projects. I do, however like web design stuff. Making a website makes me no more of a web guru than owning a camera makes a person a photographer or holding a musical instrument makes one a musician. With that out of the way... I've had →

Wow. That was a rush! After the last few weeks finalizing prints, framing, preparing and all around brainstorming at high speed, it all came down to one great night of celebration with friends last Saturday! Highlights of the night - and all were simply amazing: We have the coolest friends and clients out there. Sara said it best that each of you have →
Always good to see good news on TV. Wednesday my sis Aliya and her 2nd grade students were on the evening news for winning an "I Love to Read" challenge. She's always been the smart one of the fam. (I'm the geeky one and our youngest sis Genna is the... obnoxiously outgoing one. :) If you've met her you know →

We've rescheduled the Gallery Debut to Saturday, March 7th to make way for an even easier time for our out of town guests and friends to join us! It's been over 20 years in the making. Ever since 1988 when Eric picked up a 110 camera and wandered the neighborhood with camera in hand he's been snapping photos ever since. Unknown →

Inspiration hits again, this time in the middle of an already inspired album design session. Our first newsletter went out on New Year's Day to kick off one of many new things happening at eB Photography.Above is the new banner and name for the letters to come: the Storyline. I'm all about a good story - that's why you'll find our →

Just before finishing packing up for a Saturday shoot I ran across a news feed to find that an article I posted was featured on DIYphotography.net! (That's Do-It-Yourself Photography, for the record.) I mentioned the power adapter splitter dubbed "SuperSquid" a little while back here. I was thrilled to see it featured on the Instructibles.com home page as well as added →
It's been a rainy day here in South Bend. Great for indoor work getting caught up, unpacking stuff from Art Beat (still finding glitter everywhere) and getting a few quick projects out of the way while photos back up and get sent out for orders. Introducing the SuperSquid. :) Location photographer's battery charging helper. On location photography shoots I usually run into →
Art is an expression that needs no explanation but in its essence demands attention. Sara Bassler-Bucholtz Art Beat came and went in four and a half hours. I, for one, think that for all the work put into it, the Beat should be a weekend fest or at least a day-long event. Being sandwiched between Labor Day weekend and the Notre Dame →
Art Beat is now INSIDE THE CENTURY CENTER at 120 S St Joseph Street South Bend, IN 46601 Click for directions! Same Art time - 4:00 till 8:30pm New Art venue! eB
For the last two weeks it has felt like the night before final exams getting ideas and prints together for Art Beat. Today didn't help that one bit. It only added MORE instant favorite shots to choose from before 4pm tomorrow. We started at hair & makeup around 11am, shot through 6pm, hung out till 9pm and it's been one rush →
Here's as formal as it's getting for an invitation to this year's Art Beat festival in downtown South Bend: You're invited! Come see us!

Yep, the Nikon D300 passed the test - it can capture baby cuteness. Rainy mornings are perfect for baby snuggles and photos. Our little camera ham :) CLASSIC Sara expression!
