211 Studio Rivets & Rust

For years I’ve always loved the great look of ancient, old  Rusted Iron Railroad Bridges. That Rust combined with Millions of Hand Set Rivets, Pounded into place well over 100 years ago. I’ve used my favorite bridge for numerous photo shoots (first 2 pics), and recently I’ve noticed on the newly renovated MSNBC Studios Set, where they now have exposed some of the very same structural Beams & Girders, and you now frequently  see them in the background of the  newsroom. That gave me an idea…. I always like to try to push & expand my artistic abilities, so here’s the latest in my ongoing Studio Personalization.
This is my Client Lounge, where I meet with Clients & chat about their Weddings or Portrait Shoots. What was once just a plain wallboard separation between these two sections of the room, they are now part of my very own rusty old tribute to these great old structures.
I then thought….whats an old beat up bridge in the middle of nowhere, without some Graffiti? So I thought for a bit and added a few select, important, recognizable  symbols & lettering that were common & meaningful during my lifetime, and THAT really brought this thing to life!  Pretty cool, isn’t it??? GET OFF THE TRACKS! HERE COMES THE TRAIN!”


Our Attention is….Riveted

I always love the look of this old Railroad Bridge, and what’s cool too is knowing that my Grand Dad worked for the very same D. L. & W. Railroad that built & used this bridge.
Soft & Pretty + Old, Iron & Rusty = Always a Winner!











Sassy Cassie!!!

Shot Cassie last month..She’s my favorite Young, Local Artist…having painted the fine Zim Horse’s Heads Mural on the side of my 211 Studio Building. So this day I got to return the Artistic Talent Favor!!!

Destiny T-Rumped

Having a little fun back at the 211 Studio with a really YUUUUGE Fan!

Donald Trump 's distinctively coiffured hair sparks Social Networks to find the animals that look like the US Presidential hopeful. Cat owners brush their feline's hair forward or sometimes add fur to resemble the mighty republican's comb-over - other animals need no help, looking uncannily like the out-spoken New Yorker. / Source: INTERNET

It’s Her Destiny!

Just a few more quick shots from our shoot almost a month ago! I’ve been buried with work, and wanted to take my time…so here we now begin. Great job Kiddo! You’re a Natural, and I bet you Mom & Dad are smiling from ear to ear…….LOTS more to come very soon, so stay tuned!













































Rimlight Surprise

While editing the Sparkler Sendoff at the recent Wedding of Shannon & Christina, I was pleasantly surprised to see this unique effect show up! The burst from my Backflash hit the lens of my main D3s Camera and left this neat Halo Effect behind. No additional editing was done on this shot, and I just think it looks kinda cool….almost like a “Bridal Bullseye!”
Way to go Ladies!

Woods Nymph Afternoon…

Wood Nymph Afternoon
Spent Sunday afternoon with Cassie shooting all over the area….lots more to come, but these were just too cool to let wait!


Had the pleasure yesterday to shoot this young lady for the second year in a row. If we forget the 99% humidity and the fact that we got drenched at the end of the very last shots while working on the bricks….(and if you look really closely you can see a couple raindrops streaking through the shot)…we had a BLAST!!  Fun Times!  lol
