  1. My (very own) Love Run Half Marathon

    29 Mar 2021
    If you’d have told me last spring that I’d be running monthly half marathons by the end of 2020 I’d have said “you’re nuts!”  But given the events of 2020, I shouldn’t be surprised that that’s how things have shaken out.  Back in November I was busy photographing an ad…

  2. Cancer Crusher, Redux

    19 Apr 2017
    Three years ago my friend, Alison,  was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. She made a comment on Facebook that ultimately led to me shooting her portrait when she was still going through chemo (see the original post here). The objective was simple—look back in a couple…

  3. Unexpected Turns

    08 Sep 2014
    Sometimes it seems the world is hell-bent to jade us at every turn—self-serving politicians, senseless violence, rising prices, static wages, climate change…. But occasionally, the status quo is overshadowed with sources of untainted inspiration—much like the proverbial flower pushing through the cracks of a city sidewalk. Such inspiration might seem…

  7. Quality Time

    13 Aug 2014
    Once again, I am extremely thankful for my iPhone’s amazing capacities. I took my daughter out fishing at dawn a couple weeks ago at Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania. We were awed by the mist and stillness of the lake, and became even more inspired as the sun peaked…
