Headshot With A Splash Of Color

Erin

This is Erin.  I met her via The Arcanum as she is one of the apprentices I’m mentoring. I had the pleasure of meeting Erin in person during a headshot photography meetup I organized.

One Is More Than A Number

one-year-old

The number one means so many different things depending on what its referring to.  For a one year work anniversary it is a pretty neat deal, but not one often celebrated. I rarely hear of anyone celebrating one year of retirement. But a first birthday is huge.  It is a giant milestone for the parents Continue reading…

The Look Back

The couple here had their baby a few weeks later. I have photographed many couples, their children and even maternity photos in the past. But now that Melissa is having our first baby I see maternity photos differently.  To me this photograph speaks more about what I would like to do for my clients maternity Continue reading…

Smiles & The Start Of Something Amazing

5 Day Smile Challenge

Today I am happy to share a new challenge among the photography community. You see, two weeks ago I was challenged by my friend Matt to participate in the 5 day Black and White challenge. It was a fun challenge, but I also felt there could be more things like that with strong purposes. So Continue reading…

On our way up to Acadia National Park we stopped at two lighthouses and a cove.  We were hoping for the rain to break, but it didn’t.  So we sucked it up, put on our rain gear and made some magic. The photograph you see here is actually one of two lighthouses in this area. Continue reading…

For the past few years I have seen Rick’s website many times.  He and I have many of the same photographer friends, and he happens to also be a Photocrati customer. But my recent trip to Maine was the first time I got to meet him, and turns out he’s an awesome person to know. Continue reading…

Hoboken Pose

Stepping away from my Acadia trip for this photo… My younger brother got engaged recently, and Melissa and I went to Hoboken, New Jersey (home of Frank Sinatra) where they live, to make their engagement photos. The photo here is one I made on our way back from one location headed back to their apartment. Continue reading…

Rocks At Portland Headlight

portland-headlight-rocks

The first stop on our way up to Acadia National Park was Portland Headlight. What a gross day, weather wise. It was hard enough to see a few feet in front of you let alone try to get something with your camera. I spent some time doing long exposures as a way to break away Continue reading…

Cut Rope

One of the stops on the way up to Acadia National Park from Massachusetts was Perkins Cove. The day we were there was very misty and foggy, so I was feeling uninspired. However, I did manage to get a bunch of photographs that I’m happy with. Including this one which is going into my new Continue reading…

Two Of A Kind

two-chairs

While up in Lawrence, Massachusetts we spent a few hours in the mills. My first subject to photograph at the mills were these two chairs. My friend Bob photographed me photographing the chairs, which of course looks funny since I’m crouching down to photograph chairs. Sometimes we look silly in photographs. But these photographs definitely Continue reading…
