Size Matters

This photo shows how you can tell how important the size of your print is.  It’s amazing to me that people still even want 4×6 inch prints. When photography was analog and time consuming, it was a serious effort to create an 8×10 inch photograph but today, there really isn’t any limit. Technology today has…

Photos are installed

I’m really excited that my black dogs project photographs are up at the Gleason Library in Carlisle MA. This is a great opportunity to show the work in a smaller venue as a first glimpse into what the photos could really become. When I first thought about this project, I really thought it would be a…

My hardest client. My family

It’s school vacation week here in MA and we had grandpa visiting from Cleveland.  We had a great time and I made sure to spend quality time with my family. That is why I’ve been so quiet this week.  I make a family book at the end of the year using photos I take of…

Photos of Fiona

  Fiona is one happy senior. Her mom got a gift certificate for a photo shoot with me for christmas and called me soon after because she was so excited for the photos.  We talked about it and decided that since there was a storm coming through before the weekend, we should plan for the…

So much editing

It’s been a crazy few days. I’ve been shootings lots of black dogs for the past few weeks. I had almost 10 just last week. This is great because I’m building a big collection of dogs but I ended up being really behind on editing the photos. These photos need lots of editing too.  Part…

New blog for black dog project

I’m excited to announce a new blog, Black Dogs Project  dedicated to the photos I’ve been shooting of black dogs. I’ve been holding the photos close to me since I stared and haven’t been doing a lot of sharing. Even still, I’ve been getting some really good response from people who follow my Facebook page…

Black dogs gathering steam

I’m really happy where my black dog project is so far. It’s slowly growing and as of last weekend, I’ve photographed 6 dogs. Once I get ten more dogs, I’ll have enough to get the book laid out.  I’ve grown the project to include photos of the dogs owners and shooting video for the process…
