Every so often, an amazing product grabs my attention that I just gotta have! Recently, I was contacted by USB Memory Direct to try a sample of their USB flash drives. I’ve seen these at trade shows where exhibitors give them away with their logo and website imprinted on them. I always thought they were a pretty cool way of […]

Probably the most iconic building in Cleveland, Ohio is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As a photographer, I just love the distinct design created by world renowned architect, I. M. Pei. Almost every view of the building offers a unique view of Lake Erie or the downtown skyline. See more views of the Rock and […]

(NOTE: You can spin the video all around by clicking on it and moving your cursor in any direction.) Lauren and Josh Allen decided to celebrate their one-year anniversary with portraits taken in their wedding attire at Huntington Beach… in DECEMBER! All I could say was BRRRRRRR!

The route to my degree in Specialized Technology – majoring in Photography/Multi-Media allowed me to explore the field of fashion photography while at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh (AIP).

There weren’t any more attacks on the U.S. after that, so just 10 weeks later,  my wife, two young daughters and I spent Thanksgiving weekend in New […]

Over the years, I’ve found some of the best portraits require climbing a ladder or laying on the floor or ground. Olmsted Falls High School class of 2015 student, Tori Pishkula, her mom, Colleen, and I set out for a “photo safari” in The Flats near downtown Cleveland this summer to create something a little different […]

Yep, I knew it would happen eventually. I’ve been waiting to be asked to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but I never thought it would come from our Australian foreign exchange student from 24 years ago – Rebecca Freeman Haines! I asked her to do the ice bucket honors. She came all the way from Australia to […]

  For years I’ve been bored with photographing fireworks. Fighting the crowds to get a good spot, dealing with hot and humid July weather, bugs, crying children… the list goes on. I’d much rather stay home and chill-out with the Mrs. – UNTIL NOW! I recently read an article by a photographer who captured some great […]
