Color Me Rad

On April 26th, Color Me Rad descended upon Manchester, NH and I was there with Gameface Media to shoot the event. My assignment was to take pre & post-race photos at the finish line and stage area. A standard zoom lens would have been ideal if I owned one! I wrapped up my camera to […]

Labradoodle Portrait

Labradoodles

Over Easter weekend, I had a session with Peggy & Nellie, two labradoodles that had just gotten their haircuts (aka some surprise grooming). Before arriving, I had to ask how large a labradoodle was because for some reason their name makes me think of a small dog, however they are actually quite large and weigh […]

Shopping Cart Multiplicity Portrait

Be Different

What do you do when a client wants something quirky in addition to a few simple portraits? Have fun, of course. Conceptual portraiture is the perfect way to stand out and do something completely different! We started out with a laundry list of ideas and narrowed it down. For this session, we focused on two […]

Week 47 - Feeling Nostalgic

52 Week Photo Project Wrap Up

Week 1 – A Self Portrait Without You In It – I set up a lightbox with three lights, set up a few objects that show a bit about me (photographer, climber, writer), and made a few shots. Week 2 – Your Front Door – At the time, the front door was ugly, so I […]

Wildey Path

Late Season Foliage

I drove by Pine Grove Cemetery in Manchester, NH and felt obliged to stop. I hadn’t explored beyond the pond and bridges and numerous people were walking along the twisting, narrow roads. Yellow, orange, and red leaves were being backlit by the sun further south. Another photographer was even down by the bridges shooting a […]

The Goofy Shot

South Willow Animal Hospital Open House

This past weekend, October 13th, the South Willow Animal Hospital in Manchester, NH hosted an open house to show off their new facilities. They featured a pet Halloween costume contest, a raffle, treats from Baked, and goodie bags for everyone that walked in the door. I was set up taking pet portraits, or as it […]

Interiors

With the exception of my bizaarchitecture photos, I haven’t spent much time looking at interiors through a lens. Unlike my other twisted images, my intention here was to at least attempt to present a place as it is, without distortion or much post processing along the lines of real estate photographs. The vertical lines needed […]

Fading Light

Football Freakshow

What do you get when you tell someone that has never played and rarely watches a game to come up with a football themed photo? Somewhere in the closet I have a Nerf football, but I didn’t think that would cut it for me, so I found a football and headed for a field on […]

Inside the Dessert Cafe

Planet Marshmallow

As of yesterday morning, I have a collection of images hanging at Planet Marshmallow, a highly recommended cafe downtown Manchester on Hanover St. A huge thank you goes out to Heather for allowing me to hang them all. For the past couple of months I’ve been stressing over getting prints made, finding frames, and of […]

Memorial Day

The Last Days of May

An $8 million Blackhawk helicopter landed in Arms Park along the river in downtown Manchester, NH for Memorial Day and given the weekly theme of “Memorial Day” how could I not take a walk with a camera in hand? I grabbed my new 80-200 mm f/2.8, my 50mm and my 8mm fisheye, stuffed them in […]

TiltedFeature

Tilted Inspiration

Inspiration can come from anywhere and most of the time I’m not feeling all that inspired. When the April 2012 issue of Popular Photography arrived in the mailbox, I didn’t anticipate seeing an image that I absolutely had to “try”. The article “From Shutter Press to Finished Image” and specifically the Tilt Series by Romain […]

Unbalanced Pieces

Bizaarchitecture Returns

It was almost a year ago that I got kicked out of the mills and posted my last Bizaarchitecture photos. This time I set up in the lobby of Waumbec Mill, had someone offer for me to use their forehead to set my white balance, took some shots of the antique knitting machine, then wandered […]

Is That My Foot?

Kane, Mickey, Myers & Tiki

Kane, a lonely three-year old Pitbull, stares at me and obviously wants to lick me. He sits down in front of me and lifts his paw to shake when I tell him to lay down. As soon as I shake his paw, he lifts the other one to shake again. He’d sit on me if […]

Under the Bridge

Under The Bridge

Freshly cut metal links litter the muddy ground. The chain link fence is rolled back just far enough to slip through, and for whatever reason, the ten foot tall metal slats that protect the other two sides are absent. Someone went through a lot of trouble and there’s no telling how many times this has […]

Window Light

Snowtober

After taking somewhere close to 2000 photos in the last few weeks, I just realized that I haven’t posted much at all. As I work through my backlog, which includes a tired dog, the Pumpkinfest in Keene, NH, foliage in Northern Alabama, and various animals and locales from a vacation down south, I’ll try to […]
