Travel: Streets of London

July 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
With a population of over 8.5 million (13 million plus metro) London, England is delight for street photography, nearly on par with New York City. The constant flow of people on any given street most of the day meant that even though I was there on a family vacation, there was ample opportunity to capture some of the street scenes. There are a few...

July 02, 2016  •  2 Comments
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.

January 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
This post is has been a long time in the making. I shot 11 weddings in 2015 resulting in nearly 10,000 finished images and that is a lot to go through to narrow down to one blog post. I narrowed it down to 600, then 300, then get the idea. Finally I gave up on making a very complete look at my wedding season (that'd be just too long) or a...

It has been 19 ye...

Travel: 42 Hours In Maine

August 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
A long summer vacation wasn't in the cards this year, but a quick trip to Maine before the chill of September hits was. Keeping things simple we headed to the Portland area (that we know and enjoy) and were treated with beautiful weather and light. The first evening we visited what I read was "the most photographed lighthouse in the world", Portlan...

Travel: Arizona

April 25, 2015  •  1 Comment

December 31, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
To my surprise, I am above all a people photographer. This year I took pictures of people in many different settings including weddings, news & magazine assignments, commercial jobs (I'm not ready to share many of these, but they will work in to my portfolios in the new year), on the street, and in people's homes and neighborhoods. Here are some fr...
