Archives by Year: 2014

2014 has been a great year of photography for me. I have had a wonderful time traveling to many new countries to shoot a variety of subjects that provided laughs, heart-touching moments, and adventures. These are some of my favorite… […]

I want to say thanks to everyone who came out to see the presentation at Akron Camera Club last night. It was great catching up with old friends there. Akron Camera Club is where I first started showing my images… […]

The title makes this post sound like a bad drinking game. To clarify, I am referring to the pictures that I do not take, hence the lack of accompanying photograph today. It may sound absurd to travel to a faraway… […]

While in Maramures, Romania I visited a church on a Sunday. The service was heavily attended as it was “Rising of the Cross” day. It was also the last Sunday before some of the youth left for other areas to… […]

I will be presenting a new program, “Travel Photography from A to Z”, at the Akron Camera Club on Wednesday December 17th at 7:30 pm. The presentation covers many travel photography tips as well as some general travel tips. Cuyahoga… […]

Romania! In September of this year I had an event to attend in Spain and decided to combine the travel with some photography. I searched for a place in Europe that was untouched; where time stood still; and where traditions… […]

Earlier this year I went to Venice, one of my favorite cities in the world, for Carnival. My goal was to get up early and shoot the costumed people that dotted the area around Piazza San Marco. I had heard… […]

I wanted to share a “behind the scenes” photo from the last blog post. Many thanks to Jacque from Strabo Tours for planning such a great trip and also to photo buddy Sue for tolerating my sometimes-unusual requests! 🙂  I… […]

I recently entered the Third Chapter of The Compelling Image Photography Contest presented by Art Wolfe and SHUTTERLOVE. “Travels to the Edge” was the theme. “Googly-Eyed Adelies” was chosen as a Runner-up and “Working in India #2” was given an… […]

I just returned from a few back-to-back trips. I started with Photoshop World in Las Vegas. Despite the name of the conference, Photoshop World is informative on countless topics in addition to Photoshop. Whether your interests lie in Lightroom, portraiture,… […]

I seldom travel to the same photo location more than once. There are so many places on my list to visit that venturing back to my favorite places always tends to come in second. This summer was an exception. Last… […]

I just finished writing about the death of one of my favorite lenses (R.I.P. 16-35).  It seemed appropriate to follow that up with one of the first photos taken by a new lens of mine: the Nikon 800mm. To further… […]

I am thrilled to have been invited to display five of my images in the gallery of Hudson Fine Art and Framing in my hometown. The event is showcasing local photographers mid-August through the end of September. Kathy Johnson, the… […]

As I type this blog post, my Nikon 16-35 lens is lying on the bottom of a river in Scotland. As a tribute to this great, but seldom used lens in my bag, I thought I would share one of… […]

When thinking about Scotland, the first things that come to mind are castles, rugged mountain highlands, waterfalls, and of course… seals. Wait, seals? Yes, seals. This photo of a “common seal” was at least captured next to a castle, Dunvegan… […]

I recently returned from Scotland, a trip full of surprises. The first surprise was that I was traveling for twelve days in the country where there were hardly any people to photograph. With all of the published beautiful landscape photos… […]

People have always been my favorite subjects to photograph. They can be young, old, attractive, or covered in lines and wrinkles. To me, it’s all good. Connecting with a person to catch that fleeting smile, candid laugh, or quiet moment… […]
