Holly Wood, Part III

BOURNE, MASSACHUSETTS — Holly had a bright red dress that might work well for a Little Red Riding hood sort of aesthetic. We went into the woods on Cape Cod and captured a few pictures. Though her shoes are cut off, this was my favorite shot from the session.

Holly Wood, Part II

BOURNE, MASSACHUSETTS — One of Holly’s relatives owned a piece of property with a barn and stables. We took a short drive there to see what we could come up with. Here’s some of the pictures from our second photo session.

Holly Wood, Part I

BOURNE, MASSACHUSETTS — Back in October of 2010 I traveled back to Massachusetts from Ohio; I was there to visit with some friends. My friend Sam had also arranged for me to meet and shoot with Holly. Over the course of my few days in town, I met up with Holly for two days. There…


BOURNE, MASSACHUSETTS — Rebecca posed for me only a short while before heading off to boot camp. We met through my friend Sam, as was often the case with the women that modeled for me around that time. In Rebecca’s case, we met at Sam’s house and used his garage to set up some lights.


WAREHAM, MASSACHUSETTS — I met Catelyn through a mutual friend named Sam. I was still very new to trying portraiture; this was only going to be my second or third attempt. The three of us met up with our friend Benny Suds at his family home in Cape Cod for a photo shoot.

Behind the Nursing Home

SWANSEA, MASSACHUSETTS — While visiting one day with a friend at a Massachusetts nursing home, I looked out the window and noticed a field of grazing cattle was behind the building. There were a bunch of cows and a single bull. It was drizzling outside, but I didn’t want to leave without first trying to…

Independence Day 2009

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — I didn’t know it yet but this was going to be my last Independence Day in Massachusetts. Rather than go down to the riverfront, I set up a tripod in front of Fall River’s Government Center. The building sits directly over Interstate 195. I took pictures of the fireworks being set…

We Came Across a Horse

FREETOWN, MASSACHUSETTS — My oldest and I went for a drive to the Freetown-Fall River State Forest in Freetown, Massachusetts. I drove my Chevy Venture minivan down a series of bumpy dirt roads. Along one of those roads we found a fenced in field with some horses. I took pictures of the one that was…

Summer Flowers 2009

MASSACHUSETTS — I can’t seem to get enough of flower pictures. The bright colors and whimsical styles often make for interesting pictures. This was going to be my last full Summer in Massachusetts; I moved to Ohio the following June. Here are the flowers of my last full New England Summer.


BOURNE, MASSACHUSETTS — In my quest to learn how to take portrait photos I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some really enjoyable people. The first shoot I did was with Kristi. I was working with some fluorescent umbrella lights, which you can see in the reflection in her sunglasses. For outside…

Porch Spider

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — I was sitting on the front porch when I noticed this spider going about his business. I’m not a huge fan of getting close to these creatures, but a macro lens and magnification filters helped me get up the nerve to try and get an interesting picture. I really like the…

Summer Flowers 2008

MASSACHUSETTS — Here’s a collection of photos from the Summer of 2008. These all feature flowers and a few include bees or even a fly. I don’t remember the specifics of where they were taken, but I am confident they’re all from the Southcoast Massachusetts area.
