Triathlete magazine Hudson Valley Photographer

I had an awesome chance to work with one of the best triathlete/chef combos here in Hudson Valley.  I was super excited to be able to shoot for another magazine that you could actually pick off the shelf, and I was stoked when they picked me for this shoot.  Seeing as how I wanted to make sure that this shoot went well I actually went in advance to the venue to scope out some locations for the shoot.  Which gave me a great chance to meet and talk to who I was going to be shooting for the portrait.  David Dawson is both an instructor at Johnson and Wales, as well as being a triathlete.  Something that I was certainly impressed by.  What was great about this guy w

Hudson Valley Engagement Photography { Jess and Liam }

Well it’s certainly been a while since I’ve posted any engagement work up on my blog.  I’ve been so busy with the other sides of my business it’s been a challenge to find time to do the engagement work that I love doing.  I got a great chance to go out to San Francisco and photograph this wonderful couple.  They were truly special to work with, and I was really happy with the way the images came out.  Be sure to inquire about my rates if you’re interested in my engagement photography.

Portrait Photographer Hudson Valley { Amanda Rockstar }

See I’m already doing better staying on top of my bloggin…. I’m already patting myself on the back.  I’m going to try and make this part of my saturday afternoon, is getting a few blog posts out to keep people up to date on what I’m up to these days.  I’ve been hanging out with a few Hudson Valley photographers and that’s been a real blast lately.  It’s so much fun meeting other photographers and talking shop, talking models, lighting…. all the drama in this biz.  It’s totally fun.  I’ve also just redesigned my whole website.  Blog not included.  I’m thinking about leaving the blog for a while.  I don’t really feel like changing it, and it’s a big pain, and lets be honest nobod

Fashion Photographer in Hudson Valleyl Luccia Portfolio Session

Well if you guys can’t tell, I’m really into my fashion photography lately.  I’ve been putting a ton of effort into both learning and growing as an artist.  For those of you who don’t know, when I got into photography this was what I aspired to do.  And while it probably won’t ever pay the bills, it will remain to be a part of my artistic being.  I can’t tell you how giddy and excited I get by this style of portrait work.

I say portrait work because to me, I’m so interested in capturing an emotion in the moment of the shot.  I love that feeling that you’re peering through a window that maybe you shouldn’t be.  That you’ve caught some interesting precipito

Hudson Valley Photographer { Commercial Business Headshots Dr. Gendel }

First off if you’re looking for a Hudson Valley Photographer check out my main website.

I recently had a chance to do some head-shots for a local psychiatrist for use on some local publications.  I really loved being able to learn from the experience and have a good chance to show off a few different ways in which you can get a business portrait, and some ways where you can make your head shots really pop.

I think my first caveat to getting some great business head shots is to make sure that you are using good off camera lighting.  Without off camera lighting you’re not going to get that nice soft light that

Hudson Valley Photographer { New Photoshop Mixer Brushes }

So I recently bought one of those Wacom pen tablets.  I really wish I would have done it sooner.  It has been so much fun playing with this thing!  I love how I can make really awesome looking brush strokes on a digital canvas.  It’s totally wild.  Now I do have the advantage of using photoshop CS5’s new Mixer brushes, and I have to say I’m totally amazed by how great they look.  Honestly it’s like painting with a real brush in your hand.  It does take a little getting use to with the whole hand eye coordination of making strokes on something below the screen while watching it happen on your monitor.  Sadly I’ve been too busy playing with digital painting to try my hand at some really

Man I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve done a real post about some of my recent work.  I’ve been so busy with other things going on in my life it’s been hard to stay on top of blogging.  Not that blogging is really a chore, I love writing about all my photography sessions, and being able to look back on them with some version of commentary.  Even if the commentary is lacking I hope the photography isn’t.

I sure do love spri
