New Exhibit - Albany Plastic Surgery Center

This past summer it was discovered that I had a spot of skin cancer on my upper lip and I choose Albany Plastic Surgery Center and Doctor King to have this removed. During my visits Doctor King I talk about photography and once he saw my work he asked me if I would like to place some works in his office.

Today I hung 18 photos in the Albany Plastic Surgery Center located at 4 Executive Park Dr # 1, Albany, NY. If you are in the area feel free to stop in, or if you are looking for a plastic surgeon be sure to contact the Albany Plastic Surgery Center where you will find wonderful surgeons and staff.

Then & Now

Back in 2007 I did a high dynamic range (HDR) inside the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception in Albany NY. This Cathedral is a wonderful large structure that over the last few years has been under going a major restoration/face lift inside. Today I took some time to go back and take more HDR images of the new interior. The first image was from 2007 and remaining three is from today.

Need a Wedding Photographer

I typically do not advertise my wedding photography on my web site, but if you have a wedding coming up and need of a photographer let me know. I think you find my rates very competitive. This is a image from wedding that I did earlier this year.

Dangers of Hiking in Catskills

Two of my favorite locations to go and hike for photography in the Catskill Mountains are getting a lot of attention. These areas are the Kaaterskill and Platt Clove areas due to hikers falling and getting hurt or loosing their life. The local officials are asking NYSDEC to look into these locations and make recommendations or changes to the locations to help prevent future issues.

I do not want to see anyone get hurt, but I also don't want to see chain link fences or barricades in the nature area of the Catskills. Signage at trail heads is called for but we must know when we are going into locations we are not prepared for. When going into extreme locations we have to know our limits and not go into areas we are not prepared for.

The posting image is the Bridal Veil Falls in the Platt Clove, this is the view that everyone hikes into see. If you go there go slow and easy it is a short hike down a extremely steep slope to the 100 foot high ledge/cliff which I am standing on to take this photo. This view would not be the same when view thru a chain link fence.

Something Missing

One of my favorite photo subjects is missing and will no longer there to be photographed. The old barn on Schoharie Turnpike near Freehold was struck by lightening and has burned down to the ground. I remember the first time I found this location and photographed it, the farmer came out and I ask him if would be OK to walk around and photograph is barn. He said "Sure no problem but why photograph the old barn" I said in return "but it has such a great character to it", and the farmer in reply said "if you like it that much I will sell it to you if you like". From that day I would stop and shoot photo of the barn thru the years and seasons watching it age, this past weekend I drove by only to find the charred remains, it was sad sight.

Eastern State Penitentiary Visit

July 5th I drove down to Philadelphia PA to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary, one of America's most historic prison taking up a full city block in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia. This is now setup as a museum and for photographers they will allow you to bring and use your tripod for a nominal fee. Six out of the thirteen cell blocks are open to the public and the majority of them are still in a decaying state making this location for high dynamic range (HDR) photography. I have uploaded a image gallery of photos I did while there, you can access the gallery from link below.
