Student Portrait Rates

Don't have a lot of bucks, but you want to get your pictures done for a gift, for your team or club, best buddies, or maybe even Senior Pictures.?

Let's talk. I can even supercharge your portraits with text or some special effects just like the pros.

2008 Rates:
$25 initial "sitting" under 90 minutes, $10 per hour after 90min

$10 for a CD or $30 for prints and a CD. Additional charges for multiple copies.

We'll negotiate on orders or orders with an excessive amount of alterations and customizations.

THAT is DIRT CHEAP. If you can't afford a swank studio with lots of overhead, but you don't want to settle for having your friend take your picture with their phone and running off copies on a computer printer that runs out of ink, think. Think malcom.

Graphic Design Work

Book covers, pamphlets, business cards, company or even logos, tee shirts, or buttons- I've done it all. Don't know where to look? Don't know who you can trust to make it look professional but not cost an arm and a leg? I'm your man for pre-press or online graphics.

Let's talk. We can negotiate a price that's fair and a time line that's realistic. I've worked with newspapers and screen printers before so I know what they need. I freelance as a sideline so I can afford to charge less, up to a quarter of what the pros in the city would charge. And I'll listen to what you need and what you're looking for. Put my talents to work for you.

I've been cartooning since the fifth grade. Nearly 4260 readers have seen my political cartoons week in the Mapleton PRESS in western Iowa since 2006. I also post all kinds of cartoons at every week, from the absurd to the inane, there's something for almost everybody, from simply cute and funny, to social, religious, and philosophical commentary.

You can publish mal•toons in your newsletter, magazine of newspaper for just $10 a cartoon per issue. I'll even haggle with you for churches, educational institutions or non-profits. Or, if there's a cartoon you'd like a print of, pick one for just $5.

I'd love for a major syndicate to pick me up one of these days, but until then, self-syndication starts here. I'm not above customizing a cartoon just for you, your joke, your theme, your issue, maybe even your caricature, just let me know. Custom jobs do cost extra.

See TONS of cartoons, or even consider joining my mal•toons group on Facebook

This Fall, I'm starting to mail out cartoons to syndicates and newspapers- wish me luck!

Statement of Philosophy

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."

~Dorothea Lange

I love living in a small town, the kind of place where people help each other out. I'm just starting off in the business of taking people's portraits or photographing their important events.

I don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment, this isn't my "day-job."

What I do have is a small-town ethic, where I want to work with you to figure out what's going to work best.

If it's important to you to get truckloads of proof books and bells and whistles for hundreds of dollars- you'd better keep looking. I could even refer you to a few people. But if you're looking for someone who will do their best to look for those moments in time that you will be able to hold on to, look no further.
