Keeping it Hip

The lunch time walk on a fall day is a beautiful thing and with an iPhone that is often a lunch hour making photographs. My addiction to Hipstamatic continues... it's an awesome way to experiment with images. I chose the Loftus lens here for a blurred vignette and Claunch 72 Monochrome film for it's soft tones and black frame. Now I'm anxious to return to this spot with a DSLR and tripod and see what can happen!

Changing Landscapes

Whiteface Intervale in North Sandwich, NH is still beautiful, but it was sad to discover last weekend that one of my favorite birch glades is gone. Another reason I love photography... to remember the places we love and to point out the value of protecting those places.

It was a blast making pictures with cousins Madsie, Sam and Avery!

Fall is a Great Time for Family Photos

What a great weekend filled with all sorts of photography, including a super fun family portrait session.  It was an overcast day, but still a wonderful time to create portraits.

The shoot was a team effort... Little Avery provided the cute, my 8 year old tended the light stand and my 5 year old generated smiles with two turkey feathers he found.  I think that was generally at my expense, but I'm not sure... I was looking through the viewfinder.

Click here for more information on portrait sessions with me or I'd love to hear from you by email or phone.

Years in the Making!

I drove a bunch of miles today with my camera in tow, but my favorite images of the day were made early and close to home.  There's a small mill pond in the village of the town I live in and the Cold Brook flows over the damn creating a really nice, wide waterfall.  I've looked at this brook for literally years and today I finally climbed down into the gully to make a photo.  It isn't exactly what I had visualized for all that time.  As it turns out there are saplings growing near the base of the falls that aren't real attractive.  So, I pulled back and made this image instead.

The overcast day was perfect for shooting this scene as it evened out what otherwise would have been harsh, inconsistent light with too much contrast and dynamic range.  Now I can't help but think about what it would look like in winter.

An Autumn Sunset

Tonight was a fall evening to remember. And this is my favorite kind of photo... Spontaneous! Stop the car, run across the road and bound down the steep bank, through the woods, set a tripod and shoot!

Five from Fore! at the North Conway Country Club

Last week I did some photography at the stunningly beautiful North Conway Country Club.  It's such an amazing location right in the village of North Conway, but tucked away on the banks of the Saco with views to the Green Hills and the Moats.  Leslie and Tara did a great job modeling for the shoot and were troopers hustling around the course in the late day light and fighting off goose bumps the size of golf balls.
