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 […]

Mike & Mark Thompson

Groomsmen

While a wedding might be all about the bride, some memorable images can be made when you have a group of guys that are just having fun. Check out a few moments with the groomsmen at the Thompson wedding… The Very Serious Group Pose The “Everyone Hold Someone Else’s Suspenders” Shot The Album Cover Shot […]

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 […]

Portrait of Female Posing in Red Dress on bench in White Park Concord NH

White Park

The Tools Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 I have more lenses in the bag along with two speedlights, but they never come out. The Park White Park in Concord is a park I grew up with. I’ve played baseball on the field, jogged and biked through on the paths, even skated on the pond […]

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 […]

Mt Cardigan

Mount Cardigan

I’ll admit trail running with a DSLR and zoom lens in a backpack with a half-gallon of water is stupid – mainly because there’s no reason to be carrying that much weight. However, it’s good practice of the ABC’s of photography, that is, Always Bring Camera. The truth is that more people regret not having […]

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 […]

Reflections

Self-Critique!

The theme for this week was reflections and I wanted to do something interesting with either water or mirrors. I had a few ideas that I won’t even try to explain and that I scrapped due to lack of time, but with the heat and humidity I wasn’t too keen on venturing outside. I grabbed […]

Kids Feet

Tanner Sandals

Tanner Sandals, a minimalist sandal company based in Southern NH, offered me the opportunity to photograph the entire product lineup for their website and I happily accepted. They needed images of the sandals from multiple angles including the top, bottom, and side as well as images of the sandals being worn. I anticipated using a […]

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 […]
