Reginald Webber Jr.

Fresh from Los Angeles, Reginald moved to New York City with the hopes of establishing himself as a dancer, singer, and model and is certainly hitting the ground running. His contract with the highly acclaimed Bollywood company, Mystic India: The World Tour brought him to the East coast, but he is trying to build his experience and exposure as a contemporary and ballet dancer as well. It was a breeze working with an artist like this and I’m so glad that I could help him create a vision of what he wants to show the world. You can see many of the pictures that we captured together on his website http://www.raw-jr.com

Heidi Hope Photography Workshop

As photographers, like any other trade, I think it is extremely important that we continue to build our skill sets. Every year I try to attend a photography workshop so that I too can improve on my own photography skills. This past week I had the extreme pleasure of learning from the very talented newborn photographer Heidi Hope! Not only was Heidi’s workshop enligtening but it was filled with many sweet treats and new friends. But most importantly, her workshop has given me many new tools to expand my own newborn photography.  Here is a look at just some of the great photos we captured from the 3 day workshop.

North Eastern Road Trip

I absolutely LOVE driving and taking road trips, so why not combine them with my passion for photography.  I am always amazed by the photos you find on post cards and visitor magazines you pick up at rest stops.  Every time I look at them I think to myself (probably like many other non-landscape photographers) ” Thats easy, let me get to that location and take the same photo ” , that statement can not be any farther from the truth!!  After many attempts of recreating some of my favorite photos from magazines I realized that landscape photography is NOT as easy as it looks and I give every one of those photographers so much respect for what they do!!  They have the ability to bring a simple landscape to life and have us draw emotion from it, not at easy task!!

In this new Travel series of Blog Posts, I wanted to share some photos from a North Eastern road trip I took from my home town of New York stoping at Salem, Massachusetts and then continuing all the way north to Acadia National Park in Maine.  Feel free to ask me any questions at the end of this post on the locations or what gear was used to take each of the photos.

Queens Republican Party

This past year I had the privilege of meeting and photographing two Republican candidates that were running for City Council in Queens County, New York.  Alex Blishteyn grew up in Queens and is now a very experienced and successful litigator, who is a proud product of the NYC public school system.   Joseph Concannon is a proven leader! Who in his distinguished 25 year career with the NYPD rose up the ranks to Police Captain.  Today Joe is the CEO of Integris Security LLC, a physical security, disaster recovery, and intelligence service.  Even though they both come from very different backgrounds and professions, they both have strong commitments to their community and the Republican Party.
