Last week I said that I wasn’t a photographer who photographed people. I made that statement even though all the photographs last week featured people. I am going to make the same statement this week to. And maybe I should make a caveat. Or maybe this is an admission. I am a photographer who photographs people. I just don’t photograph people in the traditional sense many people might think of. Headshots and… Read More
I am not a traditional event photographer. I don’t specialize in event photography. And I definitely don’t go out to huge venues to photograph big events everyone has heard of. What I love is being at small local events that are important to our community. There are so many things that go on in our communities that often goes unremarked on or uncelebrated. I really like to try and capture these moments… Read More
Every once in a while I have opportunities to create photographs that are outside my normal. I love photographing events. Some of the local events I have photographed have featured live music. I really enjoy photographing people sharing their craft with others. Watching and photographing people doing something they enjoy is a lot of fun. It was interesting how the contrast between the bright sunlit outdoor area in the background and the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 275. Had a fun busy day today. Ran a half marathon in the morning. In the afternoon attended and volunteered at the Annual meeting of the Friends of the Chemung River Watershed Fun event. Music. Dinner. Roast and Toast. More Music. And maybe a moment for the ED to sit and relax for a minute when all is said and done.
One photo a day challenge: Day 94. Today I took the day off from just about everything. I just needed to. But fortunately we had great spring weather and I was able to go visit with my family outside for Easter. Beautiful weather. So nice to see veryone. Eating yummy food. Taking photos. Good Day.
As you have been reading this series of articles about the different tools I use in service of creating my photography I am sure it is becoming clear that all the gear I use serves a purpose. This continues to hold true for the next piece of equipment I will discuss. The only difference is that with this tool always plan in advance to use this tool on a photo shoot. Introducing… Read More
One type of project I have been wanting to create was a project where I am photographing one specific athlete doing what they do. Most of my sports related photography centers around photographing an entire event. So that is basically the opposite of what I want to accomplish in a project like this. I have worked with a couple of athletes on a smaller scale to work on something similar to this…. Read More
I spent some time volunteering with the Southern Tier Running Club‘s youth club SOAR at their monthly kids fun run providing photography. It is always nice to see all the kids, parents, coaches, and SOAR athletes that come out for these fun community events. Enjoy the photos.
Last year the Southern Tier Running Club launched its first trail running event. I was so excited for this and I had to participate by running in the first ever STRC trail race. This year the STRC is launched its second brand new Trail Running event: Trail Fest at Pinnacle. I was equally excited for this event as well. I love seeing our running club grow and provide more events for our… Read More
I have written often about how running has really been this synergy for me that has allowed me to combine many of the things I enjoy together in new ways. I have always loved getting out into nature, but previously I did not know very many people that loved getting out into nature the same way I did. Now that I have connected with and made friends with so many runners who… Read More
