The Tin Man Awaits…

Spent Saturday after the RANGERS big WIN envisioning, brainstorming and building the set & lighting for this coming weeks Studio Shoots in my awesome, modern, ground floor Professional Studio. The past couple weeks I’ve been searching for old, rusted out, used, corrugated tin roofing. No one seemed to have any, and a few old barns recently torn down, well I just missed nailing some by just a week or so…till BINGO, my buddy Bill Baker of Photographers Tech & Training Solutions in Elmira, NY, stumbled upon some on Craig’s List at a place up in Ithaca. The perfect amount of rusted roofing at a great price at a place called FINGER LAKES RE-USE CENTER which is located in the Triphammer Marketplace just off  the Triphammer Road/ Rt. 13 exit. Imagine every single rummage sale, garage sale, and auction that you’ve ever been at, coupled with all of the remodeling & building hardware that you have ever tossed out in your lifetime in a huge storefront. Electronics, housewares, tools, books, furniture, doors windows, molding, electric & plumbing fixtures, lumber, bath tubs, sinks, toilets, lumber. All of it reclaimed (Hey, It’s ITHACA!) and just waiting for a new life. The prices are very reasonable and they have so much product that they have some of the overflow stored outside in huge shipping containers. So remember, if you are ever looking something off the wall and are just coming up dry, you might just want to check this place out. Like I said, they do advertise lots of the inventory on Craigs List.
Here are a couple shots while I was getting the lighting tuned in, being assisted by my ever present Studio Lighting Model, the Prince of Darkness Himself, Dick Cheney!

Booted Barnstormers!

A quick shot from yesterdays great Wedding up in Hammondsport, NY & despite the snarl of traffic caused by the Crafts Festival in the Square, everyone had a blast!
Bride Christine and her Gals just loved showing off their Country Cowboy Boots! As you can see the girls were all pretty shy!
And thanks so much for the great compliment from Christine’s Brother Michael, at the end of the night. It really doesn’t take a lot of words to make my day.
As I was packing up after the rehearsal he came up and simply said…”Thanks for making my Sister Happy!”
Mission Accomplished! :)

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!!!!
