The Donnell Daily



The Don — helping Dad with a light test.

(Can’t help myself) My little shark’s first stop on Beggars’ Night. Des Moines, Iowa. 2013.

Happy #2 birthday to my #1 boy. Love you.

Editing a new portfolio this week and running across lots of images that are stirring emotions. Sometimes I miss this guy so much that it hurts.

Hank, 2010.

Gonna see this guy (@colindonnell) in less than 24hrs. East Coast — here we come. Colin Donnell, ca. 2004?

(Any art buyers and/or photo editors that see this, I’ll be in NYC through Wed., and would be happy to bring you a cup of coffee if you look at some of my pictures.)

Outtake from The Greatest Show on Turf for Spirit Magazine. Gretna, NE. June, 2013. More images tomorrow.

Des Moines, Iowa. 2013.

Last May, I scored a new client and a quick BBQ-filled trip to Kansas City, when the wonderful Caitlin Peters called from AARP. She asked me to create a portrait of three generations of AARP members, all of whom are in one family: Kendra Bell, 50; her mother Nancy Bell, 76; and Kendra’s grandmother, Lucy Elliott, 96.

Of course, the real (uncredited) star of this shoot was Nancy’s wallpaper — “old-lady chic” in her own words.

Check out the story online here. And thanks Caitlin.
