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…

Rebecca

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.

Catelyn

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.

Kristi

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…

Boston Common

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS — I was downtown in Boston in early July 2008 when I took a stroll through Boston Common. I took pictures of some of the birds and flowers. There were several swans swimming in the lake. A bunch of ducks were also in the water though quite a few were walking around. Most…

Lizzie Borden

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — I lived in Fall River, Massachusetts for about six and-a-half years. It took me about five of them to realize that Lizzie Borden‘s family home was essentially just down the street from my residence. I visited on August 16, 2007 and took some pictures of the bedrooms where the grisly murders…

A Wedding

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — Of all the ceremonies that I’ve photographed over the years, I can’t think of a couple that I loved more than Tara and Heather. They were a beautiful couple. Tara was handsomely dressed and her bride was beautiful in her gorgeous wedding dress.

Squirrels

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — I was regularly running the video and audio controls for a public access television show. It was filmed in a studio at Bristol Community College in Fall River. I often brought my DSLR camera with me when I left home for the day. I took these pictures of a couple squirrels…
