Sentimental at heart, I value memories especially our shared memories. If you want to create lasting memories or make a great first impression where you and not the photographer is the center attention, we should talk.

At the zoo shoot, he was the most enthusiastic tiger.

Like many super heroes who are not easily identified in public, This friendly youngster is going to reveal the inner drives that lie just below the surface of consciousness ... As you can tell he is very engaged and relaxed in front of the camera.

Voila!! The young man has been transformed into a fierce tiger!

Red Macaw from a recent shoot at the Philadelphia Zoo.

After waiting a log time, we were eye to eye.

Macaw from the Philadelphia Zoo. This is Picchu named after Machu Picchu in Peru. Of course the Zoo has another macaw named Machu.

I did not expect great things today with the tigers. The light was waning, the sky was overcast and they spent most of their time behind the bushes.

Eli came to visit me at office today. It was great! It is his first birthday!

Dan and Geniene gave me some feed back on my infrared photos. The adjective is "ghostly." That's better than "ghastly." Overall the results have been interesting but not flattering.

Black and white version of an infrared shot of my grand daughter, Ali. She is a trooper to let me test my new toys and techniques.

This is the color version of a shot of Ali earlier this evening. Using a Nikon D100 converted for infrared photography. The light source was a Gary Fong Diffusion on an SB-80DX flash. The white balance was custom set using a fluorescent Warm Card. The shot was done raw with post processing in Bibble and Photoshop CS2.
