9/11 Relic Calls Elmira Home

Today I stopped  by and spent a few moments with a piece of the 9/11 Horror of the World Trade Center, Twin Towers that is now on permanent display in Elmira. Very nicely done & very moving.
Never Forget….

Hanover Harvest Moon – 9/8/14

Great MoonRise earlier this evening as I was heading into the Studio, so I grabbed my camera and ran back over to the Square, and…. that was that!



Castle For A King

The Beautiful Belhurst Castle, located at the North West end of Seneca Lake in Geneva, NY., during a recent Wedding Shoot.


Takin’ The Dive!

Just yesterday was the GREAT Wedding & Reception of Molly & Zach at the beautiful  Icelandic Winds Farm up in the hills of Addison, NY . Molly’s folks live there on this beautiful property, and earlier in the week, we did something really cool that I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while now! They have the really great Pond you see….and I’ve always wanted to do the Bride & Groom Plunge thing….well last Wednesday I fulfilled that desire! With the help of  a Wedding Dress from “Sal’s Boutique”, and two of my fellow Photographer Buddies, Mike Kohberger & Corey Bernas lending a few extra hands on reverse angle camera shots ….well, check these shots out! Pretty Damn Neat!!!!








Well, I’ve finally broken down & done it! I don’t do this cheesy stuff that seems to be the latest rage these days with Wedding images, But my Groom Steve pretty much begged me to do this one for them! And I gotta say, they all did a really great job on the “Godzilla Run”. So I said… John Candy In STRIPES….. “OK, I’ll Do It!!!”

So we’re up at Sullivan’s Monument / Newtown Battlefield State Park in Elmira, NY……and after most of our “REAL” shots were done, the gang let loose and did the Godzilla Run right past & below the monument. I thought that would look cool and give me the look I’d be going for here. So I picked out the running shot I liked the best….then surfed around to see what was out there for some killer Godzilla shots. Immediately I loved this one because it was pretty large, and also I loved the Purple color (who would have guessed, right?) and all the fire in his mouth. As I started creating this masterpiece, and merged the two images together, I even amazed myself. When I selected the Godzilla shot, I didn’t even realize how perfectly his front arm/claw was positioned & how it would form right around the monument spire!  But it really came together fantastic, as did all the rest of the Photoshop blending, cloning & merging ….and here we are! So I guess I found out that sometimes, I can even impress myself, without even knowing I am doing so! lol
Stevie & Kaitlyn….this one is for you!!! Great Job Kids!

And finally, I’ve gotta say….I’ve seen a lot of these shots, but this one is the Damn Best BY FAR! Color, Creativity, The Runners & the Site Location provide the Perfect Intersection of Fantasy & Reality!

Wagners Vineyard PhotoBombers

So Ashley, Paul & I are down in the vineyard shooting, when all of a sudden we get PhotoBombed by a few of the boys! Hilarious! “Now get the Hell out of here can’t ya see I’m trying to work!!!!”


My Bermuda, Interluda…

In between EVERYTHING else going on recently, I’m slowly digging into some of the images I captured during last months NYC – Bermuda vacation cruise. Here is the first batch of “Island Art” through my lens.
Also, I couldn’t repress the memories coming back to me, of a previous cruise journey that I set out on, way back in 1912. As those close to me know, I believe I was a passenger on the Titanic, and perished on that ill fated journey. Hence the couple of shipboard images that I tweaked from memory, to look vintage 1912. Enjoy!

Go Fly A Kite!

From Saturday’s Season Opening Wedding with Jenn & Kurt @ Esperanza Mansion…..I knew it was going to be cold and windy, and the 45 degree weather didn’t let us down! So just in case I brought along a Kite so we could take advantage of the gusty winds above still frozen in April, Keuka Lake. As my hero David Letterman always proudly proclaims ” There’s No Off-Position on the Genius Switch!”
