Summer is for exploring and swimming. Showing the kids all my favorite places this summer. Stokes State Forest.
Even though it is my career, photography is also my hobby. I make images very single day of my life. I am overwhelmed by it. Not just looking at old tim cameras on EBAY late at night or trying new iPhone apps, but envisioning photos I have in my head that I want to, no, that I NEED to make. Here is a bunch of recent images…
Last night I went to the EyeEm world tour in NYC. Last year I was one of 10 finalists in the Portrait category of the 2014 EyeEm Photography Awards. Although I didn’t win, my photo has traveled as part of this exhibition around the world including Berlin, Tokyo, Toronto and Art Basel in Miami. Last night it came to NYC and I got to see my baby girl projected on the wall. The original photo was taken with an iPhone 5 and is the last photo in this post.
Meredith and Jake are running winter track with the Fredon Polar Bears this year. Thought we’d see if they like it. While it’s still in the air a bit… Kate and I are super proud of them.
I like winter light, I hate the cold.
Again, winter light I love. Bitter cold, I hate.

Kate has been making homemade bread. It is amazing and the whole house smells good.

More track practice.
Milda is from Lithuania, and it is a tradition there that the groom carry his bride across a bridge on the wedding day.
“It symbolizes their connection and togetherness.”
That’s what I found on the inter webs, but Milda’s MOH says it has to do with, “no matter how hard it was carrying her across the bridge, in life/marriage, things will be harder.” Everyone laughed out loud at hearing this while on our way to Grey Towers in Milford.
What can I say about this wedding? About these two lovebirds? The best word, one I use a lot, is AWESOME! A gorgeous location on a perfect day in August with two of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph. There are quite a bit to look at here, enjoy.
My wife’s grandfather, Joe, Grandpa Joe, Poppy as my kids call him, called me one day and said, “Hold July 22nd free. We are fishing Morris Lake.” I was beyond excited… BEYOND! I have always wanted to fish this body of water but it has some pretty strict restrictions. The watershed for the town of Newton, only Newton residents are allowed to fish it and only two per day. That’s it. Two. Maybe three, if you can all fit in the boat the town provides you.
There are no houses on the lake and no other people. There are cliffs, trees, boulders, islands, super clear water, and fish that are hungry. Poppy caught a great largemouth early on that he thought at first was weeds and then I caught a bunch of Bluegills, like I do, and a few smaller bass. Then I watched as a bass came up from the deep weeds and just smacked my clouser I was stripping in. A good 2 pounder, held up next to the boat and Poppy exclaims, “I waited 2 1/2 hours for that fish!”
A small break for lunch at Krogh’s and my best fish of the day afterwards, it was an incredible day. I cannot wait to go again!
5:30AM with my friends John and Matt at a local lake. It was in the upper 40’s but the water was warm. We tossed flies and caught a bunch of pickerel, crappie, bluegills and one largemouth. It was a perfect morning.
