Brothers

December 29, 2007

And from another New York trip…  I travel to Syracuse more than anywhere else and love going there.  Somehow, I end up there several times each winter which makes no good sense at all.  However, while I’m there, my friends feel like family, and I pretend that I’m home…  It’s nice.  I was there for a long weekend in mid-November to work on a project for Ophelia’s Place and had the opportunity to photograph Parker and Ian.  Parker (13ish) and Ian (6ish) are awesome brothers – the sons of my friend Lori.  Lori happened to be making a video about people and their passions for an upcoming conference.  So, she videotaped me while I took pictures (with her nice new camera) of her boys.  And, the pictures turned out pretty well.  Here are a few of my favorites:

My very favorite (Ian on the Left; Parker on the Right)

And now for Ian – with his very cool drum sticks and sweat bands (possibly karate chopping, I don’t really remember) prior to the main “photo session”…

New York Trip

December 27, 2007

I just returned to work from two weeks vacation.  The first part of my break was spent in Liverpool, NY with two of my closest friends, Mary Ellen and Doris.  I photographed Doris to come up with the “banner” for her upcoming on-line radio show.  Here’s the mock-up:

 

 And a “self-portrait” I did of the three of us by setting the timer on my camera:

Aren’t we cute?…  and, I might add, very productive when we’re together?

Photography

December 18, 2007

I’m starting this blog in the hopes that it will encourage me to take more photographs and to share them more often than I usually do.  Just to bring people up to date on me, I’m working in DC and love my job (especially since I was promoted in October).  My 9 – 5 (or 6 or 7) job has nothing to do with art, but I try to keep my creative juices flowing on the weekends and evenings.  On occassion, I do portraiture still.  People always have been and always will be my favorite subject to photograph.  Hopefully, I’ll have the opporutunity to do more – and I’ll share some of my favorites with you all here.  For those of you who haven’t seen my work since years ago in Arkansas or since my college days at Scripps, here’s an example of some of my more recent work.  I believe all of these were taken over the past year and a half.  Let me know what you think!
