7+ years of shooting at Kensington Church has given me a front row seat to some of the most memorable and life changing events of my career. Enjoy this look back…

Had a great time shooting some behind the scenes photos for a Kensington Community Church video shoot with this very talented and funny crew. Its always fun capturing those “in-between takes” moments on set.

You don’t always have to travel far for a fun photo op.
I once heard someone say that “your backyard is someone else’s dream location”. I couldn’t agree more, and have always been able to find new things to shoot in my backyard. What might seem boring and plain to us is exciting and filled with new possibilities for someone across the world.
Tonight I watched my 3yr old son playing with his bubble blowing toy and noticed that the bubbles piled up on the grass in some very cool patterns. So of course I grabbed the camera and the bubble gun and took advantage of a free 5 min in the backyard during “magic hour” (perfect light for photographers). Shooting with my Nikon D800 and Sigma 50mm f2.8 macro lens here are a few shots I was able to get.
Try it sometime, look at the boring everyday stuff around you and try to see something new and exciting. It doesn’t have to be groundbreaking but you will always learn something new… every time!
Hope you enjoy.
Polaroid. I love shooting film and using old cameras. I recently bought an old 1963 Polaroid Automatic 100 Landcamera known as the “Mad Men Camera”.
It shoots onto the peel apart polaroid film that gives you a negative. I scan that negative. That is what gives you that great classic border and vintage look and feel.
Something I miss with digital photography is the “rareness” of a photo, capturing a moment and knowing that this image is the only one, the only recorded image of that event. Perfect or not, blurry or crisp that the one that goes in the photo book to always remember that time.
I guess iIam a sucker for capturing and keeping memories. Enjoy these memories.
One of my favorite things to do is set up my studio and just experiment with things i find laying around the kitchen.
This time it was food coloring and an old fish tank. I used a couple nikon sb600 strobes and my nikon d7000. Enjoy
Phish has long been my favorite band. So when I was asked by the band to shoot for them on tour it was a great honor. Some of my favorite photographers have shot for this band. Among them Danny Clinch, It was an awesome time. I shot 2 shows. Blossom Music Center in Ohio and Hershey Park in PA.
Had the pleasure of working with the wonderful team at John Tagle Associates, an architecture firm located in Troy, MI. Here a few office shots.
