October 30, 2009: I was just driving back from the farm and feed store when I saw this old barn and lovely sky begging to be photographed. Just wish I had my 8×10 view camera in the car.
Milford, PA: Environmental Portraits are photographs of people using the environment or scenery as the background as opposed to a studio created image in front of a background. Typically these photos are taken where someone works, lives or plays or where the person has a connection. It’s a nice change from sports where I typically carry multiple cameras and lenses as well as hundreds of pictures. These photos were all taken on location with a single camera and lens combination. Moreover, these were all as they came out of the camera, which is unusual in this very post-production oriented world.
If you want a unique portrait taken On Location, please contact me to set up an appointment.
June 14, 2009; Redwood Valley, CA: While I specialize in capturing action sports images, I can’t help but post pictures I took during my childhood friend’s wedding event held at Frey’s Vineyard in Redwood Valley, CA. The ceremony was held in a grove of Redwood trees at one of California’s first organic vineyard located in Mendocino County. Both my friend Dennis Crean and his bride Heidi Grosskamp are vegans so the food at all the weekend festivities left a lot to be desired for this self proclaimed carnivore. However, I can honestly say it was one of the best and most fun weddings I have attended over the years.
