As frequently as I am struck by lens envy, I’ve been keeping an eye out for a purchase to assuage some of these feelings. I’ve figured I had decent stop gap lenses for group photos and action sports, although on my crop sensor 7D mkII, the wide end on the 70-200 is a little tight […]Read more "Winter Looking Glass"
2016, good riddance. In truth its been a good year personally and professionally; shooting sports, plays, and concerts, teching still life, assisting on figure shoots and shooting myriad wildlife. I’ve been lucky to be getting steady work in studio with good people, shooting for catalog, as well as the occasional location shoot, Paterson NJ, Woodstock […]Read more "Swamplog III; Years End"
The last of the laptop bird dumps. I took a break from paying attention between shoots at the studio to meticulously research every part of my new hypothetical desktop, birthed soon thereafter.

Morristown being along the northern most edge of the Piedmont Plains […]Read more "Morristown’s Solitary Swan"

A 500 yard dogleg right with a surprisingly full crowd of hungry birds; Double Crested Cormorants, at least 3 Great Blue Heron, a lone Great Egret, Black Capped Night Heron, and Green Heron. All of which I hope to […]Read more "A Gulp of Cormorants"
