The Difficult Spider
May 31, 2014

It is no secret I like spiders, I also am very aware many of you do not. Please, no need to send notes and messages, I already know. It has been awhile since I posted a spider shot. I had great plans for this one… but the spider had other ideas. Long story short, I did not get the photo I had hoped, and it will not live to see the photo I did get.  It did not have to go that way, though I have photographed dead insects and spiders before, their demise is usually not at my hands.  This one made choices that led to the horrible outcome. I got 3 shots in 20 seconds… and then no more. RIP you PIA. It did not have to go like that.

On the Take
May 30, 2014

So, I have aches and pains, who doesn’t? Especially those of us that tend not to rest, I often wonder what my body would do if I truly did nothing for a week. I have never taken a beach vacation, I am not one to sit around.  I think my aches and pains are my body’s way of revolting against this schedule. I got a bad knee, tendonitis in my arm and at times a horrible back. All usually controllable, until they all demand attention at the same time.  This week my back led the charge and demanded to be heard. Thankfully Dr.  Mark Hausmann of Godwin and Hausmann gets me back on my feet when I need it, Mark and Ibuprofen are all that are keeping me moving this week.

The Common Dance
May 27, 2014

I take no credit for this shoot, this was the plan of my daughter. it was brought to my attention a few weeks back. As soon as dance class ended, we would go to Boston and photograph her in various dance poses. Once class ended, she would use her dance shoes outside. I chose Boston Common as the location, I wanted to incorporate as many people in the scene as we could… that was a debate. We compromised with some here and there.  My favorite shot is the one next to the vendor cart from a distance.  There were plenty of people watching her, and I was far enough away that it took people some time to realize what was going on. Check out the rest below.

Spent the day in Boston with the family. We headed to the Common to check out the annual display of American flags, this year there were 37,000 flags. We also shot some dance photos in the crowds for my daughter. I will post those tomorrow. Happy Memorial day, more flag photos below.

Had a great engagement photo shoot with my next couple today. I can’t wait for Tiffany & Chris’s wedding in July. We tried a few times to shoot this last year, but it got cold one day in November and never warmed up. I am glad we waited.

Who You Gonna Call
May 24, 2014

My Distracted Driving co-stars and I headed out to Wilmington, MA to the Pop Culture Expo. The highlight was getting this shot with Ernie Hudson, who was awesome to take a minute to take this photo with us even though he was on his way to another commitment. I got to hold an Amazing Fantasy #15 (big deal to me) but I was $11K short of the asking price. I did get a signed print from Roger Kastel, artist – think Empire Strikes Back and Jaws. I even spoke with fellow “Timmy” Jon Provost, he was not impressed with me, and we had a photo taken with Leah Cevoli a voice actor from Cartoon Network who was a guest on our show. Fun day over all.

Yr5•234/365•1695 For KRV May 23, 2014

May 23, 2014

I never had the chance to meet Capt. Kyle R. Van De Giesen, I have met his friends, his family, his wife and even his 2 incredible children. Through all of them, I feel I know him. Over the year I have many photo jobs, weddings, portraits, events, but there is something about the one I did tonight that is extra special. I photographed the 5th Annual Cocktails for Courage , this was my 3rd time, and it as the biggest one yet. Kyle killed in action in Afghanistan in 2009, this event is held to raise money, to fund programs in his memory. I am privileged to start my memorial day weekend each year working this event, speaking and photographing veterans, their families and friends. Happy Memorial Day to you all, take a moment and think of Kyle, his family and all the others who this weekend is truly honoring. Be safe.

This was dinner, so I made it the dailypic. I wanted to shoot from prep to plate. I reviewed the shots with my wife (the chef) and she took an exception to all the photos with uncooked meat.  You would think they were nudes.  I do not understand… if you are offended by the naked, uncooked chicken I am deeply sorry… for you.  It is 2014, I think we can show naked, uncooked chicken on the interwebs, that is what it is for.  Beware, there are other photos below.
