Welcome!

Hi and welcome to my little part of the internet.  The site is setup as a blog primarily with some additional static pages that can be access by the links above.  There is a section about me which contains a short timeline of my life and important milestones. My older Digitaz site that has a ton of photos and discussion about various travels.  Primarily this is a site about photography which has been a consistent passion of mine since my early teens.  That being said visit my Portfolio is where I have what I consider some of my better work.

Deborah

Thanks so much.  It looks fantastic!  We used it for our holiday photo.  Everyone commented on how amazing the photo is, especially of Elizabeth   happy new year!

Deborah's Family

In support of the Neighborhood Association I donated a family photoshoot to the silent auction we had at our picnic.  Deb was the high bidder.  Irene and I met Deb, Dave and their daughters at Highland Park on a brisk November day.  We had a great time creating some great images.  See the full set HERE.20131110-_MG_6047

Legacy Society

Hi Dave – Thank you so much for the great job you did with the photos at the Legacy Society party on Sunday night!  It’s very helpful to have a visual record of the evening.  Our guests really enjoyed having their pictures taken, and I am sending the prints to each one today. Best regards,

The Regan Family at Mt Hope

20131019-_MG_4122Irene and I had a great time this past Saturday with the Regan Family at Mt Hope Cemetery.  The weather and lighting was perfect and the colors!  For the complete shot look HERE.

Irene at Mt Hope

20131018-_MG_3786I was preparing to do a photo shoot at Mt Hope and wanted to scout out a few locations.  As usual Irene is my favorite subject :) See the rest HERE.

Harvest Sunday 2013

Harvest Sunday at Christ Episcopal Church in Pittsford NY.  Children are key participants in the service and a great October Fest type lunch is served.  For all photos go HERE.20131006-_MG_3092

Mandala

20130925-_MG_2218Irene was with friends at Giva the week of the Fringe Festival and prior to the start of the play she saw Katie Jo Suddaby creating a Mandala in the lobby.  She called and said you need to see this!  I stopped by and we made arrangements to come back and photograph the Mandala and Katie Jo.  I had Irene light it low and from the side in order to pick up the texture of the sand. The remaining photos are HERE.

Riley Family

Carrie won a family photo shoot that I donated to for a Neighborhood association fund raiser.  She wanted some photos with her mom and her son and daughter.  Irene and I met them at the Episcopal home on Mt Hope and used the chapel.  We had a nice time working with Carrie and her family which included her daughter's boy friend.  See all shots HERE.20130909-_MG_1175

Homecoming Sunday

20130908-_MG_0679Like a lot of churches attendance is down during summer months and to celebrate the arrival of fall, the new school year and the return of parishioners Christ Episcopal Church in Pittsford has a homecoming weekend.  They needed to get updated shots for their website and to use in their annual fund drive. Many of my photos were used in a great video they created for their annual campaign which can be found HERE.

For all of the shots I delivered go HERE.

Kritsy

20130626-_MG_7353-Edit-2Kristy needed a head shot for her real estate work.  A couple of different backgrounds and looks. For the rest go HERE.

Chip and Karen

20130823-_MG_0029Karen was my art teacher back in Duanesburg.  Irene and I get together with her and Chip when we can.  This past fall she delivered an art class in Penn Yann.  On the last night of the class Irene and I drove down and had dinner with them and near where they were staying was this great old, rusted truck.

Libby

20130818-_MG_8487One of the prizes at the neighborhood associations chili cook off was a photo shoot provided by me.  Libby and Alison won and just before they moved back to Canada we got the job done.  Libby is a great photographer so it was fun for him to be on the opposite side of the lens, I think :)  One of the shots, the Pano, was done using the Brenizer Method, this is where you use a medium telephoto pretty much wide open.  Take a series of shots and stitch them together.  The effect looks like it was taken with a wide angle lens but the depth of field is not something you would get with a lens that wide. For the rest of the shots go HERE.

Jason Kite Boarding

20130814-_MG_8415On an extremely windy day Jason called to say he was heading to the lake.  These shots are inside the outlet of Irondequoit Bay with the pier in the background. 20130814-_MG_8414

Olympic Lifting

20130727-_MG_8715At Monroe County Crossfit they held a mock Olympic Lifting event.  I set up an umbrella with a light and a spot on the wall behind each lifter. They did all the hard work, I just pushed a button :) For the full set go HERE.
