Spending Memorial Day weekend at Lime Rock Park (LRP) is a tradition that extends back to my childhood and this year was no different as I spent 4 days on-site at LRP covering the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC).Read More
Since I was very little Lime Rock Park has been, without a doubt, my favorite place on earth.
I attended my first race in the mid-80s and had my first experience with a camera inside of Big Bend shooting Trans Am in 1993.
Since then I have attended dozens of races at LRP. In 2012 I started shooting credentialed for NoBraking, learning and growing trackside, always with an eye on something bigger. Well, I am excited to announce that something bigger has finally come. For 2018 (and hopefully beyond), I am going to be working for Lime Rock Park as an official track photographer at all the major events: Pirelli World Challenge, IMSA, and the LRP Historics. It's my dream job come true.
I recently started working with the Rochester Opera House and it's affiliate, the Rochester Performance & Arts Center (RPAC). A couple weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to photograph the fantastically talented Merrill Peiffer during her third and final performance of her solo show, "Merrill Sings," at RPAC. It was a really cool and challenging change of pace to what I usually shoot.
Rochester Performance and Arts Center is located at 32 North Main St, Rochester, New Hampshire. For event calendar and booking information visit their website.
Winter. I hate winter!! I don't ski, I don't snowshoe, I don't really like being out in the cold. But in the last couple of years I have found that being outside in sub-freezing temperatures isn't so bad if I also get to photograph race cars.Read More
I was asked twice this week if I do portraits, three times if you include the person who asked if would shoot her wedding, the answer to the wedding questions is no, however, when it comes to portraits the short answer is, yes, I do shoot portraits. I don't really advertise it simply because it has never really been a huge part of my business, but, in reality, I really enjoy shooting portraits. I especially enjoy photographing couples, families and children. My sessions tend to have a very loose, "go with the flow" feel to them. I like them to be a creatively collaborative effort. More importantly, we just have fun!
So, long story short, if this is a question you have been considering asking me, please, do not hesitate and just contact me right away! I would love to hear from you to start planning your portrait session!
2017 was a hell of a year. I left full-time employment to pursue this photography thing full-time. Still seems a little like a crazy thing to do, but so far so good. Because of this move I became a small business owner, I became a member of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association. Also, I partnered up with Tanya Lee Hervey, a fantastic local portrait photographer, to get the Greater Rochester Camera Club off the ground and I couldn't be prouder of what that has become.
As I look back over they year I can only be thankful for the opportunities that have presented themselves and hopeful for those that will be coming in the new year to come.
Anyway, the images in the album below may not represent my so-called "best" images of the year, but they are my personal favorites. They include everything from my time shooting track side, two vacations (one to Texas and our annual trip to Hermit Island), portrait sessions, photo walks, and just goofing off with my camera.
I want to send a huge thank you to a few people who, without them, this year would have never been possible. First, my wife, Jillian. Her support keeps me going. All the members of the GRCC. We have huge plans for 2018, so stay tuned. Thank you to all my friends and family for the support. And to all the fellow shooters out there who keep me motivated and make me push myself, a huge, heartfelt thank you!
Here's to 2018. I'll see you there!
