Mississippi Studios, My Favorite Music Venue

Why is Mississippi Studios my favorite venue? I just like everything about it. MS is not very big, but still has a balcony. They have a great bar inside the music room. The restaurant Bar Bar has great food, a good selection of beer on tap. I love the outdoor patio with the bonfire going […]

Jubal Thinks Too Much

Jubal, a human, a musician, now gone from our physical realm. Jubal was a gifted musician and a genuinely concerned human being. I’ve photographed lots of musicians and artists, Jubal was indeed one of my favorite artists and humans. I consider myself lucky to have known Jubal. He’s one of a handful friends that make […]

Fear Nuttin’ at Manifestivus

Fear Nuttin’ Band I caught this raucously fun band at The Manifestivus this year. The Fear Nuttin’ Band hails from Springfield, MA. Half of the six member band is from Jamaica and I think that is how this reggae/rock band creates such a unique sound. These guys sure know how to make a crowd go […]

My Time in Burlington

Burlington, at the end of the day is just another American city. I don’t want to sound like I am taking a jab at this Burlington, but it has a lot in common with so many other cities. It is a nice town, but not particularly unique. Burlington is considered a fairly progressive city, but that’s […]

I have been on the EyeEm for quite some time now, and I have been using Instagram since it was released. I like […]

Middlebury

Photo-walking Middlebury Vermont. The first time I walked through Middlebury, I was immediately taken by its charm. After a day, I felt that I photographed everything worth photographing. After a couple of photowalks through town, I quickly realized there was indeed a lot to photograph out of plain sight. I searched around with my camera […]

Why Mobile Phone Photography?

I love having a camera in my pocket more than having a phone. Fortunately I can have both. The inter-web is flooded with iPhone images, and that is a fact that we can’t escape. If you are a photographer, a good camera is a great thing to have at all times. These days mobile phone […]

The Wedding Day

Jack and Molly got married in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Jack and Molly are good friends of mine and when they asked me to shoot their wedding, I didn’t hesitate. If I do shoot a wedding, it’s going to be for friends. I have turned down several wedding gigs over the last few years, because I don’t […]
