May 2007 Archives

A few months ago The Center for Fine Art Photography selected one of my photographs, Four Corners, for an exhibit at the Denver International Airport which begins today.

Four Corners

The Denver International Airport exhibits artwork throughout it's terminal and concourses and says they are "one of the largest public art collections in one location in the country." The exhibit runs through the end of July, so if you happen to be flying through Denver for the next couple of months and you have some time to spare, take a look at all the artwork and let me know if you see mine!

I've heard other people say they get tired of weddings, but every year I still feel the same—I love photographing weddings. They're fun, often exciting, always different and very special. A couple like the one I worked with at the Hyatt Regency Newport on May 12, 2007 are all those things to the tenth degree. Jessie and Jeff came to me with a ton of exuberance and I was looking forward to their wedding from the moment they booked me. These two just screamed love and we had a great time—taking formal photos around Newport for a couple of hours, having a beautiful ceremony at the Hyatt Lighthouse and then just having a big ol' party all night long. Here are a few of my favorite photographs:

I don't know if the image below sized for online viewing can possibly get across the excitement and joy that was this bride.

I try to find different ways to pose a bridal party. It's tough, sometimes there isn't much to do other than to line them up (and oftentimes that's exactly what couples' parents want). I've got some more posed versions, but I thought this was fun.

This one's somewhat of a you had to be there/know the bride type of photo, but I thought it was a cute look at Jessie peeking into the ballroom before being introduced.

Jessie and Jeff did a tango for their first dance and it was a lot of fun. They started with a rose which almost hit me as they tossed it away.

The photo shoot around Newport was a great way to start the day and here at Forty Steps on the Cliff Walk is where Jeff proposed.

You Never Know

| No TrackBacks

I try to carry a camera on me at all times, and most of the time it's just not practical to have my "rig," as I like to call it, with me. Sure I could keep it in the trunk of my car often, but that's not really the best place for it and years of living in New York has made me just paranoid of theft enough to know better. Back in the 90's I had a Canon Elph APS camera (remember that format?). And over the past five years I've gone through a number of consumer point-and-shoot digital cameras, always coming back to the Canon Powershots which are kind of the descendent of the Elph. I've dallied over to Olympus (very nice, but I got tired of the xD memory card) and even Casio (definitely a form over function camera) but I find I just plain prefer the Canon's and my most recent point-and-shoot is their new SD1000 which is definitely pocketable. So far it's been a great camera to have with me at all times. Because you just never know when you're going to come across something you don't see every day.
