Do You Want To Try Your Hand At Modeling – for FREE?

Modeling isn’t extraordinarily difficult, doesn’t require a vast wardrobe, and it is a lot of fun! You get to try something different and new, and you acquire a bunch of new, professional, photos of yourself – and you become featured in my websites! 😁

Information Packet for New Models

Most new models trying their hand in the modeling scene, often don’t know what to expect or how to prepare for a modeling session. I usually then fumble around looking up various information on the internet for them to read up on, to help clarify things. But it always feels a bit cumbersome at first, so I decided to put together my own info packet right here – sort of a one stop shop for how I, as a professional photographer, work with models when helping them build their portfolios.

Abby – Hamlin Beach State Park!

A week ago today (July 12th, 2019), I had the great privilege of shooting a swimsuit session at Hamlin Beach with the stunning Abby! Abby and I had talked about shooting this last summer, but the weather, schedules, and timing was off so we postponed it to this year. It was well worth the wait!

4th of July Tradition

The 4th of July has always been one of my most favorite holidays of the year. More so I think when I was younger and the family did more things together.  In later years however, age and loss of family members has changed the level of festivities that the family partakes in.   Now, weather permitting, the day mostly consists of relaxing under the shade tree, grilling something for dinner, and watching the local fireworks display.


Thoughts from a hipster coffee shop…

This young lady gives me great hope for the future…

My generation has ONLY seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like not to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones.

A Different Life?

Yesterday turned out to be one of those cold, and rainy days that is typical of a New York State Spring, and the type of day that I don’t particularly care for either.

Bored, I walked around the inside of the house, looking out through the windows watching the rain and gloom. It’s funny how you can look outside like that, and allow your mind to drift off and sometimes wish for different things. Not that where you’re at is bad or anything, but just wondering how you would perceive a different life.

History at Augusta

Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! The roar from the crowd and the chants of Tigers name echoed across the Augusta National Golf Course Sunday afternoon, and no doubt also across the Nation via television, as Tiger Woods won the Masters and his 5th Green Jacket! This was history in the making, and a tournament that I was thrilled to watch!

Golden View Ranch – Obstacle Challenge

Yesterday marked the beginning of a new horse show season for me! I say “for me”, because technically a horse show season doesn’t really end! Most of the riders and competitors compete all year long. During the summer the events are held outside. During the winter, the events move into large indoor arenas.
