Photoblog Redesign

I am re-designing this blog, in an effort to become more of a showcase of styles, and less a place to tell stories.  I've got a Facebook page for that.  All the archived posts are here, if you'd like to them, but the pages on the left are now galleries of my work for perusal.

July's Outdoor Events

I was fortunate enough to get work shooting the Color Me Rad 5K at Darien Lakes as well as the Tough Mudder in Andover, NY.  Of the literally thousands of shots I took, I got a whole bunch of good ones.  Here's about 30-ish.  If you see yourself in any of these, let me know.  I'll be happy to shoot you a big one to say thanx.

Color Me Rad 5K - LOTS of flying dust.  I'd been warned ahead of time, so I came prepared with a rain sleeve and other protection for my camera.  The camera came out OK, and the pix came out even better.
(If you ever shoot one of these, be quite certain to cover the entire camera and seal every possible entrance for dust, including up your forearm.  I used 2 plastic bags along with the rainsleeve.  I taped the rainsleeve to a screw-in lens hood, and then I protected the seal with a clip-on hood.  At the other end, I cinched up the end (I put the sleeve on backwards) and then used rubber bands to double up the seal.)


















Tough Mudder - I was hired for this job while I was on top of Seymour Mountain.  It was the first time in a while that I had had 4G cell service, I checked my mail and called the guy.  Turned out I was less than 20 miles from him, as he was in Saranac Lake.  I was hired to work specifically the Wheaties obstacle "Walk the Plank," which explains a certain lack of diversity in the images' subject matter.  I certainly think that what I did get was pretty darn cool.
This race was a bit more challenging than a 5K with colored dust.  The Wheaties obstacle was 9.8 miles into the over 10 mile race, so the people getting to us were already tired and worn out.  Than they had to jump 15 feet into muddy water, swim 15-20 feet to a cargo net, haul themselves out and go conquer another 8 obstacles before finishing.

Busker at the Market

This is the reason I almost always have a camera with me at the Public Market.  There's always buskers down there playing for us.  They're usually pretty picturesque, too.  This guy was using a drum pedal to keep a beat on his case, which he was sitting on, pictures of which didn't turn out nearly as good as this one.

A few new Wedding Pix

I shot my first solo wedding on Saturday.  A few of my favorite shots:

This one's my favorite.  It's not the most beautiful, but it tells a heckuva story.


The happy couple shortly after getting hitched.  Her dress was really nice, and he was very comfortably dressed.




The ring-bearer was the best dressed of anyone in the wedding with the exception of the bride and the pastor.  Terrific kid.

Jollene Gavazzi and Jamie Baker

These sisters came up from the Corning area for a few photo shoots in the Rochester area.  I sure am glad they picked me for one of the shoots.  You can see why:







If you'd like to schedule a session with these ladies, let me know, I can help you make contact.

Last Weekend's Portraits

Only a couple, for now.
First, a 2-year-old who didn't want to be shot, but created a really cute shot, then a high-schooler in her prom dress, an engaged couple with a great attitude, and a grandma and her progeny's progeny.
These were only a few of the many wonderful people who passed in front of my lens this weekend.
