I’ll Be Waiting….

Memorial Day, what a perfect day to post a few personal favorites from this weekend’s moving Return of the Red Tails event honoring the Heroic Tuskegee Airmen of WWII. As the Event Photographer I had the honor to spend the day amongst these hero’s, and also with one of the only two remaining P-51 Fighters that are still flying today.  It was a true honor. My thanks to all the Period Re-En actors featured in these great shots… our Fly-Boy Calvin, and the lovely, vintage Miss Racquel, who looks like she just stepped out of Hollywood in the ’40’s. Great Job you two!

Four Years Ago Today…

I just realized after glancing at the Calendar that it was four years ago yesterday & today that Shelly & I  were honored to be guests at The White House while shooting my most incredible Engagement Session ever! To roam the halls of the White House while shooting Mary & David……the feeling just can’t be explained! Then to top that, we received an Invitation to the Formal Welcoming Ceremonies for the Mexican President, all being held the next day out on the White House South Lawn. Never in a Million Years would I have ever dreamed I’d have this chance to shoot at the most famous residence in the world! 🙂

Anchors Away…

This afternoon, I had the pleasure to meet & shoot a military long timer @ the 211 Studio. Bert J. Olechnowicz – 3rd Assistant Engineer – U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command…..Bert’s back home in Binghamton, NY for a short but well deserved break between deployments in the Middle East. He says he’s heading back in a few weeks for his 5th deployment. Thanks Bert, for all you do to keep us all safe!
And to the rest of you Active Duty Military people out there….contact me while you are home on leave, and as my sincere Thanks to you for your service to all of us….I’ll shoot you for FREE! & you don’t even have to duck!!!!

“At Close Range”

August 25, 2012 I had the honor to Photograph the Wedding of Katelynn Reed & Billy Olin. Keith Reed was Katelynn’s Dad. Some of my Wedding Images will be a part of this documentary, airing Friday Night on NBC, detailing the story of Keith’s murder, less than 4 weeks after the Wedding.

In September 2012, the body of popular school superintendent Keith Reed was found by his home in western New York.As his family struggled to make sense of the horror, investigators looked for answers. Friday March 21, 2013 on Dateline NBC, Dennis Murphy reports on a story about a small-town murder brewed in cyber-space.

An Afternoon With Alex

Spent Saturday afternoon with Alex, and we had a blast working together creating his Senior Portrait Shoot. We had a nice winter weather afternoon in a great setting….I mean how can you go wrong when your parents own and operate a Winery & Vineyard that we could use as our location? So tell me….how did we do? Great Job Alex, It was a pleasure shooting you!

Fun in the Fall with Katie & Jon

Spent a Brilliant Sunday afternoon on the EC Campus with Katie & Jon, almost a year ahead of their 2014 Fall Wedding. We had some laughs while getting to know each other, and we got some nice images along the way too. Can’t wait to see you two next September!

I was born at Night, but not Last Night!

This little guy certainly had a lot to say during a recent 211 Studio Session!!!
Baby talk translated….”Let’s lose the Cold Fish, and get me out of this Stupid Basket!!”

Doctors Orders – Studio Rx

From a recent 211 Studio Session with a great local Physician.
I just love how these images from her shoot came out, and most importantly…..SO DID SHE!
