New Brochure Cover for Carroll County, MD

At my house we are still recovering from a 41.5 hour power outage which began at 4 AM Sunday morning. Talk about a very un-fun time...

God bless Benjamin Franklin, Alessandro Volta, and Michael Faraday, among others.

Also props to Wonder Book and Video for the unsecured wireless network in the store. I was able to conduct business almost as usual Monday from my laptop and their parking lot.

Every photographer is the best photographer somebody knows.

My Latest Magazine Cover

This is one of the photographs I made for the Frederick News-Post's quarterly magazine called Elegant Living. I never figured I'd get a cover out of the assignment, but I always look for a strong vertical with copy space at the top when I shoot this kind of a job. It helped that my subjects were so great to work with and didn't have any problem with my intrusion on shoot day. Gotta love those holiday sweaters!

This was the first year I was able to make it to the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival, which was simply a great day. I didn't shoot to many photos since I was too busy getting what may have been the worst sunburn of my whole life. I did however like this shot of Deanna Bogart. Despite the heat she was terrific.

Charleston, South Carolina, 2001

I love clean, simple photographs, and chanced upon this scene while on vacation about five years ago.

No Snow, Just Infrared

I need to get out and shoot more digital infrared pictures. This was one of my early efforts, taken with a Nikon D1x and a B+W 093 filter. It's the bridge over Catoctin Creek on Sumantown Road. There's a lot of noise shadow areas in the image.
