Going to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a lifetime dream of mine. I would spend every Thanksgiving morning watching the parade on TV, secretly wishing I was there to witness it first hand. And then one day I went and it was all worth the wait. Bucket list item check!
When a DJ asks for photos for promotional purposes of course an Ocean Drive photo shoot is the first thing that pops in my head. South Beach is home to numerous nightclubs and bars and not to mention mecca of who’s who in the world of djing to come spin. South Beach is also lined with colorful Art Deco inspired buildings which proved to be a great back drop for Dean’s, aka The Silver Foxx, Ocean Drive photo shoot.
I had the honor of photographing some maternity photos for my friends, Hugo and Dee, who are expecting their first child any day now. Dee texted me one day and we went back and forth for a bit and I agreed to help them out. I haven’t seen them since I’ve been back in FL, but then again I’ve only been back a week so I really haven’t seen too many of the old faces yet. I’ve known Hugo for about 10 years now and Dee just a little less. They’re a great couple and you couldn’t ask for two better people to be friends with.
When September ends and October begins it reminds me of fall in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The chill in the air, the vibrant colors of the leaves shining with bright golds and reds, warm apple cider. Yup, there is nothing like Fall in the White Mountains.
Walking around Boston is a gold mine for street photography. The old history of Boston mixed with the new development is perfect for urban exploration. With accessible transportation and easy to walk streets, you have the resources necessary to take a day and wander around the city.
For a travel photographer like myself, spending a weekend in New York City is a dream come true. Hell, for any type of photographer for that matter. New York City has a plethora of amazing locales to photograph. And it never hurts that the city never sleeps; there is always something going on.
So yesterday I shot my first wedding as a 2nd shooter. A former co-worker who shoots weddings asked me if I wanted to shoot a wedding with him. My first instinct was to quote Ace Ventura and say, “I don’t do humans,” but I figured what the hell and I would go get some experience. It was a nice little ceremony by a pond in the Boston Public Gardens. The bride and groom couldn’t have been more enjoyable to be around.
