Black Dogs Rule

With the winter coming I’ve decided to work on a new project that I hope I can quickly turn into something special. I’m starting an eBook project about black dogs.  While at the dog park last summer, I had a conversation with a fellow dog park friend about how black dogs have a much harder…

Using an On Camera Flash

Shooting pets outside in open areas can be a little tricky when the dogs won’t listen. I’m good at setting up off camera flashes or studio lights but it only works well in a small area. I decided I needed some practice and asked for some advise from a photo facebook group that I’m part…

For the new year, I decided to invest into some new gear and equipment for my studio.  With all the expensive equipment I’ve purchased this year, one of my favorite things I purchased was the Canon 40mm 2.8.  This is the first prime lens I’ve used in a while and I love it for a…

Looking back at 2012

2012 was a year of growth for me and it was really needed.  As the year was coming to a close, I was first a bit down that I haven’t done enough this past year. I decided to put a year in review slideshow together to put online and decided that I’ve actually done some…

Lion behind Crow Family at the Museum

Crow Family Holiday card

I was really excited when the Crow family asked me to photograph their holiday family photos again this year.  Last year, we did the photos downtown Boston because they wanted a city view.  This year they thought it about doing something different.  We decided to give ourselves a challenge and shoot inside Harvards Museum of Natural History.  If you’ve…
