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!”


Polar Vortex Fire & Ice

Made a Midnight Run tonight up to Seneca Lake with my buddy A.D. Wheeler to shoot the Northern Lights. Well, so much for the plans of mortal men! Once we got up there we found fully overcast skies just killing any chance at all to see this great celestial feast. So after sitting in the car and polishing off our DD hot chocolates, we walked out to the lake on the Clute Park Breakwater Wall, and we played around a little in the balmy 18 degree January morning glow at 1:00 A.M.  And ya know what? After looking more closely at these shots, maybe just maybe,  perhaps we did manage to capture some of that Aurora Borealis after all?
Kinda Kool, Huh? Had a lot of fun Andy, It was a real pleasure! 🙂


Winter Wonderland

I spent Sunday Afternoon with Rebecca & Francis capturing their Engagement shoot up at Taughannock Falls State Park just outside of Ithaca. It was  a Beautiful & Blowy Winter Afternoon, following our first major snowfall of the season. Great timing kids! Oh yeah,,,, I almost forgot to mention, that little Riley also had a fun time romping in the fresh fallen snow!

Geese….tastes like Chicken

When I got back to the Studio this afternoon I spotted this flock of Geese across the street in the remains of the old Chemung Canal behind the Village Fire Station. That REMINDS me! I gotta pick up a Chicken at Sam’s Club for Dinner tonight!!!




















Today I’m A…Fun-gi!

Just a few shots of some different Fungi that I found while walking around my back studio lot near the RR tracks. It’s amazing all the neat stuff that surrounds us on a daily basis  that usually goes unnoticed.
So now I’ve got a craving for a pepperoni & mushroom pizza! Who woulda guessed?





Spring 2013……Finally!

Sandy Arrives in Maple Grove…

Shot this at about 3:00 this afternoon as Frankenstorm Hurricane Sandy really arrived in our area with heavy rain, and the  gusts of blowing winds kicking up leaves along the dirt paths of our local Village of Horseheads Burial Ground.
