I have published a number of images of fashion models that I worked for back in the day however have never posted any images of my favorite model. My wife, now of 42 years was always my best model. She had the ability to look through the lens rather than at the lens. Most good models have this skill but most of them are professionals and she was not but she did have the skill and appearance to pursue that career had she wanted to. In any case, this is a portrait I took of her in 1977 and it is still one of my favorites. This image is not for sale.
When I first started to shoot portfolios for fashion models it mostly was done in the studio. Early on though, I was fortunate to meet a real pro and she wanted to go on location. It was an education. I have published another image for this shoot as All Aboard. I picked her up and she loaded clothes in the back of my car and told me to drive to this old deserted train station in Greensburg. She understood the “derelict” look decades ahead of Zoolander This is another image from that day long ago.
Atlantic City is fun at dawn. Most people are sleeping or still desperately gambling. You may see a runner or bike rider or someone out for a walk, but even in Summer the beach and boardwalk are relatively deserted. The morning is reserved for fisherman and gulls and an ocassional photographer like myself.
Yes, it is Friday! If you are in Paris you may be planning for tonight’s insanity known as Pari-Roller.. By 10 PM about ten thousand people will gather at Gare Montparnasse to skate through the streets of Paris until dawn. You can buy a Pari-Roller T-Shirt on my commercial site by clicking here.
This sits atop the Revel Resort in Atlantic City. I know it changes color at night. A security guard told me that on Halloween it is a giant eye and that at Christmas it is a wreath. It looks like a giant golf ball to me. I put the giant gull in there just for fun, it is not a giant gull. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know!
Chris Wood from Medeski,Martin and Wood is one of the world’s best bass players. During their current “acoustic tour” he played three different basses during the show. When he plays the “stand up”bass the instrument seems to become part of his body. Click here to see other images or by a print of this one.
As the time of year switches from Summer to Fall our mood seems to switch also. I have already seen my first Christmas ad and it is technically still Summer! People are planning their Halloween costumes and parties. Maybe the key to being a happier society is to live in the present! In any event as the days grow shorter, a darker picture is needed and here it is. To see other images and buy apparel or prints, please visit my commercial gallery.
This lady looks like she might rip the liver out of your body and feed it to her son, however this is just the practiced intensity of a Steelers Fan. On this day about 8,000 Steelers Fans were at Latrobe to watch the team in training camp. It was very humid, very warm and had just rained. It didn’t seem to bother the fans or the football team.

We love gardening, especially my wife who is a persistent weeder. However, we both also like finding wildflowers. We are lucky in Pennsylvania where we have many varieties of rudbeckia, day lilies and cosmos that bloom in the woods, along the streams and besides the highways. These wild daisies were growing near the banks of the Delaware river in the woods and spot lit by the summer sun. To see more images and buy prints and apparel, please visit my commercial gallery.
We took a walk down by the Delaware River the other day. We were near Milford PA at Airport Park in Matamoras. We found these beautiful wild rudbeckia or wild daisy growing right next to the water. You can see other images and buy prints and apparel at my commercial gallery.
