Beekeeping in print

In the April issue of Birmingham Magazine, there is a story I photographed about raising chickens and keeping bees in urban environments. I was just finishing up a beekeeping course at the time so it made the assignment to photograph another apiarist exciting and quite relevant to my personal life.

I photographed Mike and Janice Malone at their home in Roebuck Springs, where they keep several hives of bees.

And on a side note, I also photographed Mike on 4x5 (not the Lego camera, just my Toyo) as the beginning of a long-term personal project having to do with bee culture in my area. Quite looking forward to this!
