Rainbow over Learning – Hunter, NY

How ironic that there was a rainbow last night which ended in The Learning Center at Hunter Mountain.  This building welcomes thousands of people year in and year out and houses the very thing I started with in the ski industry, ski and snowboard instruction.  Morgan is still so passionate about teaching people the sport,…

Night Portrait – Troy NY

After watching an episode of Creative Live with Doug Gordon today, I was truly inspired.  He was shooting a model at night on a rooftop in Seattle, Washington.  Having a shoot schedule tonight I figured why not try some night shots, but at street level.  ENJOY!

Night Photography on Green Island Bridge – Troy, NY

Back to Troy we went to our favorite bridge to capture this night shot.  It took several attempts as this bridge really does not have a lot of traffic on it.  I wanted more headlights and taillights but often only one car would drive by during the exposure.  Here is one with several but I…
