I am often asked what I kind of a photographer I am - A photojournalist? Yes. A wedding photographer? Yup. Commercial photographer? Yeah. Portrait photographer? Definitely. Event photographer? Sure. Street photographer? When I can. You get the point. It is easiest and most accurate to just call myself a photographer because I could be photographing any number of things in a month and June was no different.

June included some news and sports coverage for the Herald of Randolph and The Valley News. Senator Patrick Leahy and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Women's Economic Opportunity Conference at VTC, A fun ad shoot for the Herald, Chelsea girls lacrosse semi-final, Woodstock Union High School graduation, Oxbow softball finals, and a protest in South Royalton.

I photographed Raq-On Studios student dance recital for the third year in a row. This bellydancing event held at Briggs Opera House this year is always fun and I always come away impressed with the artistry and how much the participants enjoy themselves and the confidence they exude. I also photographed a youth production of Anything Goes at Chandler Music Hall in Randolph and was equally impressed with this show - very entertaining and a very talented cast and crew.

I also photographed a few weddings and a pre-wedding shoot (for a wedding I couldn't attend) among other shoots.

I'm looking forward to the diverse photographic opportunities July is bringing...
