Wedding Photographer?

Posted by on Jun 19, 2016 in Articles | No Comments

Every so often I volunteer to photograph a neighbors wedding- happens about once every 5 years. I know every photographer hates to photograph weddings but I find it a mildly amusing puzzle- how am I going to get good shots under these typically dreadful conditions? So yesterday I went down the road and photographed my […]

Tofino, British Columbia, Gallery

Posted by on May 30, 2016 in Articles | No Comments

Time to crow about a great workshop that Brenda Berry and I completed last week. Tofino, BC, sits mid-coast on Vancouver Island on the tip of a peninsula bounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Cayquot Sound. It is a photographer’s playground with giant trees over 1000 years old, very cooperative black bears prowling the […]

Tidepool update

I have just gotten back from my workshop in Tofino, BC., and I have sad ecological news. The tide pools that I have raved about, that I look forward to seeing and photographing so much are basically decimated. I saw none of the giant, colorful sea stars that the Pacific coast is so famous for […]

Tidepools!!

I’m up in Tofino, British Columbia, on the Pacific side of Vancouver Island doing a workshop for Santa Fe Photography Workshops. This is one of my all-time favorite places to teach and photograph because there are so many subjects to shoot and all the locations are easily accessible and close to town. Within 30 minutes […]

Spring Trees

There are lots of things to photograph in Spring other than wildflowers (even though I Love to photograph flowers!). One of my other favorite things to photograph is usually overlooked- the first tree leaves of Spring. I like to do portraits of the very first little tree leaves when they first come out- they are […]

This year we will have two non-profit partners- the Vermont Land Trust and the Dorset Equine Rescue. We are photographing a brand new property for the Land Trust this year- the Merck […]

Hidden behind the Color

Messin’ around with some pics late last night and look what I found!! There, right in front of me all this time, where some really nice black and white forest images! they had been hiding behind all the wonderful color! Several of the 20 or so pics I turned into b&w in Lightroom where color images […]

Photographing the Forest

Photographing the Forest

Forests are some of the hardest environments to photograph in, at least they are for me. I doubt anyone has taken more pictures in forests over the last 30 years but still I find it an extremely challenging place to find a good image. The problem is that there is just so much stuff going […]

Spring Tulips!

Since it is cold, dreary and miserable here in the Northeast I thought I would post some very Spring tulip pics. These were all taken one morning in the Keukenhof Garden, an internationally famous garden in the Netherlands, I visited a couple of years ago. April is tulip season in the Netherlands so if these […]

Making a Difference with your Photography

Posted by on Apr 2, 2016 in Articles | No Comments

Have we all had, by now, just enough of the ‘Hey, look what I did!’ part of photography? We show our friends, we show our family, we show our camera clubbers, we show our workmates, our neighbors, our maids, our butlers, we basically show everyone we possibly can our pictures…and then what? Are we doing […]
