I came into New York City for PhotoPlus Expo to check out some of the new equipment and services available for photographers. Since I am not a fan of big cities and prefer the fresh air out in the Poconos, I arrived early and left shortly after lunch. Also, I just did not find the show all that exciting for whatever reason. Next year I may just sign up for workshops and skip the expo part. While I was there I did take the opportunity to to snap some photos with my Leica M9 with a 50mm/2.0 Summicron lens attached. Some of these images were captured as my camera hung around my neck and just snapped away every once in a while without focusing nor looking through my viewfinder just to see what came up.

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.
