Ever since I started blogging I’ve been waiting to post this photo from a few Halloweens ago. This is one of my favorite photos. My wife and her friend Leslie went around as witches on their electric scooters handing out candy to kids. The electric scooters were a little mojo challenged, so they had to
It rains a lot in St. Johns. This is St. Johns, Newfoundland, not San Juan, Puerto Rico. Whereas San Juan is remarkable for its sun and beaches, Newfoundland is an island about the size of Texas hanging out in the middle of the North Atlantic like a big green iceberg which is remarkable because it
I was really happy when John and Tracey asked me to photograph their wedding. I got the job because their wedding arranger, Gayla is a friend who was familiar with my work suggested me to the bride, Tracey. I had a long email dialog with Tracey starting months before the wedding but, because of schedules

For the benefit of those that haven’t seen these type of cattle before, this is what they really look like in real life.
I’ve shot literally thousands of images at my kids sports events over the years and I think that I’ve got some tips that other parents and photographers might find useful. Get Inside the FenceShooting through the typical chain-link fences at baseball games in almost all cases does nothing for your photography. Don’t be shy but
St. Louis stands proud on the banks of the Mississippi River. It has a very rich history. Mark Twain wrote a memorable story about the Adventures of Huck Finn on the riverboats. I don’t know if any of it actually took place in St.Louis but it is easy to imagine that it could have. It
I recently visited southern California. I was working in Ventura and staying in Oxnard. Ventura has a nice beach and marina area. The marina is kind of touristy. There are several shops and restaurants and of course some very expensive boats visible behind locked gates. The tables in the restaurants look out either inland to
