A work in progress...

I have just spent the past couple hours working on my website and blog... and what can I say.... it is still a never-ending work in progress. I am truly amazed at the people who can blog daily... and stay on top of this. To me, it is a challenge and I am working on it. I have gotten in the very bad habit lately of just using my TWITTER updates as blog posts... As of this weekend, I am taking down that option and if you want to see what I am doing, right now... FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER. I am also planning to work on posting longer, more indepth blogs here. Hopefully, due to excellent work from Acapella 360, the company that helped me launch my new website... I will have a better BLOG in place in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, check out my FACEBOOK page and become my friend to see what I am up to. I am hoping to book a bunch of gigs in October.... so if you need something photographed... Let's discuss.

Let me know what you think...

Photo shoot # 2 of 3 this week at a retirement home in the burbs honoring World War II veterans. Very inspiring to be around true heroes!

Thanks to Betsy Shepherd for hiring me to shoot and document these very fun events honoring the vets. It was all based on a ceremony to launch the photography of an excellent photographer named Tom Sanders. Check out his amazing work HERE. He has been traveling the country photographing WWII vets.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots I captured during the events:
