Disney World


I took my young wife to Disney World long ago. She knew that she had recently married a commercial photographer so she was plenty patient as I would set my camera on something sturdy, set the timer and run back to her for the image to be captured. These images show that no one else knows that a picture is being captured. I'm not sure how many of these I have kept but there were plenty.

Nestle Portraits

80 Portraits in 3 hours. Then back to the studio to do some very minor retouching. This day was nothing but fun. The people at Nestle are all wonderful and really good sports. These 80 portraits as well as some building images I captured after the shoot will all be made into one of those single pictures where each portrait becomes a pixel. It will be hard to find yourself in the final image but the good news it that I shot the images huge so they can be used for things like LinkedIn or Facebook or the website. Fun people make for a fun day.

Bye bye Michael, I hardly knew ya!

Well, it has been confirmed. Michael Harris died as the result of a stroke one year ago. I've been searching for a definitive answer and now I have it. Before picking my son up from Laguardia airport, I stopped by his old apartment. The doorman didn't know Michael but a very nice woman told me that she would take my number and ask another doorman who had been there for years. She just called (thanks you so much) and now I know. My mentor, teacher who became my student has gone. Were I cannot say. Bye Michael. I hardly knew ye!

Portraits for a food company



When you are known as a food photographer, you are often asked by food companies to photograph many things related to food. In the past I have photographed many famous athletes including all three Mannings. These were all done for food companies that I shoot food product, packaging and recipe images for. These images are of Gerber's new president. I have photographed food packaging and food products for Gerber in the past. When asked to photograph Bill, the new president, my answer was (of course) sure! It helped that I have photographed portraits for years.

Travis










Travis was already cut up from a fall earlier in the day. Still he was willing to do jumps within the confines of the small studio. The place is only around 600 sq. ft. and still Travis got some great height. He only fell once or twice and our floor is smooth concrete but "no skateboarders were harmed during this shoot".

Wolves vs Lions Becomes Dead Flesh Company





New products for fall means new work to shoot. Wolves vs Lions becomes Deaf Flesh Company with new shirts for the fall line. I've been shooting for this company for many years and it's extra fun because the models are all aging gracefully. Travis was new. He is a skateboarder for a cool ministry. Just too much fun.

Family man:
       Love him or hate him, one thing you have to admit is that despite his wealth, Donald Trump is a good family man. I was shooting an ad with Donald and his dad way back in 1981. I have always liked to shoot constantly and I caught this look between the two. They really related well and seemed to truly like each other.  I enjoy hearing from his own kids these days (who might be the same age he was then). Family is important.
