Photo Adventure: Taughannock Falls

I love photo adventures.  In fact, given the chance, I’ll probably try to turn even ordinary outings into adventures! Why?  Because it gives you the opportunity to see places in a way that most people don’t.  You climb over fences, look like a total nut, and capture moments of beauty. Back in October I had the delightful pleasure of hopping into a car to road-trip over to Taughannock Falls with Valerie Kasisnski, Alex Currie, and Elaina Trapani. We climbed over barriers, walked through ice cold water till our feet were numb, and ventured so close to the base of the mighty waterfall that all other noise drowned away into its roar. So without further adieu, here’s a little glimpse into our adventure.                ... read more

Sketch Runs Away

Sketch was sad.  Life on paper left her flat and lifeless. Sketch ran away.  Life on paper was two dimensional, and she wanted more. Sketch wasn’t sure what these were.  But maybe these were “friends.” Sketch will never go back to paper.  This world was so far beyond the borders she had been constrained to . . . and she loved it. The horses were an unintended addition to the series.  I ventured out into the pasture, noting that the horses were grazing off in the distance.  Shortly into shooting in the empty field, however, I heard the thunderous sound of 40 horses running towards me. It was one of those moments where you freeze with fear: I was alone, I didn’t have my phone, these things are massive, and I don’t look like a normal human. They circled up around me and began curiously nuzzling and sniffing me.  One was particularly interested in my camera on the tripod… he was notorious for photobombing for the rest of the shoot. So for him, here are some of his best bombs. read more

Grace & Mike: Engagement

“Some people meet the way the sky meets the earth, inevitably, and there is no stopping or holding back their love. It exists in a finished world, beyond the reach of common sense.” -Louise Erdrich These two met early on in high school and have been together ever since. They have had the opportunity to grow together through so many of life’s transitions so far, graduation, college, long distance, maturing, and serving; and with marriage on the horizon, they have countless more to come.  I’m so happy I had the privilege to photograph them and capture a glimpse of the beauty of their love.     “Come away with me. Let’s go somewhere. You and me, just the two of us. Let’s wander through darkness. Forget our worries and do all the things today that will help carve a better tomorrow.” -R.M.... read more
