What follows are footsteps.  

Sometimes they are taken carefully.  Other times, with wild abandon.  But no matter how they are measured, you will find them here.  I will introduce you to family, friends and clients.  I will write about my philosophy and feelings about photography and life.  I will eventually solve world hunger and poverty. 

 

But first, I will post pictures.  Lots and lots of pictures.

 

There might even be a story or two along the way.  

 

So, please follow my footsteps...

 

 

Lest we forget...

Last July, I had an experience that changed me. We had received the itinerary for our trip to Italy, and everything looked wonderful, except the last part. Our tour was scheduled to visit the Monte Cassino, the site of four battles in early to mid 1944, with the Germans occupying the Monastery in Cassino, Italy. After seeing buildings and ruins...

Silhouettes

July 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Lately, my eye has been drawn to the lines created by silhouetting an object with the sun, stripping away everything but the outline. Of course, it's never quite that simple - the silhouettes that I enjoy producing the most STILL have a little information in the shadows, but your eye is forced to look for it. The image can be enjoyed for it's simp...

Rome

July 21, 2012  •  1 Comment
A return trip to the 'Eternal City'? We couldn't say "yes" fast enough. Rome is quite possibly the most beautiful city in the world, from the ancient ruins, to the Renaissance and Baroque period works of art by some of the greatest masters in human history; Rome offers something for everybody. The temperature hovered in the mid to high 30s, w...

Kyria

July 04, 2012  •  1 Comment
I've known her for about 4 years now, and she is simply the most remarkable young woman that I have met. Most 17 year old girls don't have their 'stuff' together yet, and won't for about 5 years, but Kyria is WAY ahead of the curve. Then my wife and I met her parents, and the mystery dissipated. Lee and Denise are old-school parents who have insti...

Fragility

April 24, 2012  •  3 Comments
The world today is so much different than the one that I grew up in. Reality has taken a baseball bat to my illusions of youth, as I have begun to witness my parent's siblings begin to pass away because of old age, knowing that their time is a lot closer than is comfortable. Then I look down at my own small children, and feel the torch passing t...

Restorations

April 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
From as far back as I can remember, photographs have been important to my family. So, when my parents asked me if there was anything that I could do to fix their wedding picture, I told them that I'd see what I could do... The picture was 5"X7" and had been displayed behind glass, on a shelf in their living room for more than 40 years. Fortunate...

Light

March 24, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
The longer that I travel this road that I'm on, the more well acquainted I've become with my weaknesses. Until I understood light, I rarely used flash of any kind. I was a proponent of shooting with only natural light. I was scared of my own ignorance. Natural light is the most beautiful light in the world, under the right circumstances. But...

The Big Picture...

March 15, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
I came to love photography, because of landscape photography. Challenging yourself to capture the huge vistas and place them in the palms of your hands. The last kiss of light as the sun drops below the horizon. Hearing the rush of a waterfall as your gaze follows it's unknown path. Capturing a view of a distant land, where your feet wi...

Rock and Roll Circus

March 08, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Usually when we are asked to shoot a wedding, we have a pretty good idea what we are in for; bride getting ready, ceremony, reception cake cutting, first dance, etc. Not this time. Not even close... Michelle asked us if we would be interested in shooting a 'Rock and Roll Circus'? Interested? Yeah, you might say that. Once we managed to...

Partners

Having my wife, Jennifer, second-shoot for me allows me the freedom to get creative, where most shooters have to 'lock-it-down'. Jennifer is the one you'll see holding flashes, moving strobes and angling reflectors. And then, when you are not looking, she takes the picture that you blow up on your wall... System-wise, Jennifer is with the g...
