While on a cruise through Compo Beach with my youngest son, I noticed a few strange things happening in the water. It was a couple of people swimming in the water. This is usually not a big deal but the water temperature was a little above 30 degrees and so was the outdoor temperature.
The light was perfect, but I only got the chance to get them coming out of the surf. One of the swimmers approached me and asked if I was the drone operator. I said that I was and that I got only one goodie of them and it was not of them swimming. ” no worries, we are here a few times a week and next week we will do a birthday swim since it is my birthday.”
When asked why they did this, which is what my kids really wanted to know. Marcus said it was very invigorating. I am sure it was.
Neat Capital is a mortgage firm located in Southport, Ct. I photographed their branding when they were located across from the railroad station in Westport. Neat’s old office was actually the location of our first photo studio in Westport from 1969- 2000.
The new office is much brighter than the old office and you can see this from the pictures I took. Justin was looking for fresh images of his fellow employees and the space was very easy to workaround.
I really enjoy branding photography. I find it a challenge in working with the surroundings and to create images that the client can use to promote their business.
I couldn’t hold back. I had to go out. Yes, I have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, but I am always concerned about the people who have to work the streets to make them passable. But with the first snow, I had to venture out and grab some snow shots. So, here they are. Just a few…
All images were shot on my newest camera. The Fujifilm x pro1. A birthday gift to me, I am really enjoying this camera a lot. A true rangefinder camera with a really good “feel.”
Sherri contacted me to photograph Pinstripes restaurant in the Norwalk Connecticut mall. Also known as The Sono Collection. This restaurant is so much fun and it has a little of everything for everyone. I mean there is Bocci, bowling and fabulous food. I could have just hung out by the pizza oven all night, but I had a job to photograph.
I have known Sherri for many years. Sherri had me photograph for her when she worked at The Artisan in Southport, Ct.
Photographing for corporate clients is one of the many genres that I photograph. I enjoy people, so it is no surprise that most of my focus is on what people eat, what they build, or what they do. I am as comfortable photographing people eating pizza as much as photographing an interior of a building. To me, it is always telling a story with photographs.
We made it!! 2022 and here we are! I remain very optimistic for a very productive new year! In fact, I think as a photographer you really have to be excited by the new technology that is being introduced to the market. I am really enjoying my Canon 5ds which is a 50-megapixel camera with the nicest shutter you have ever heard. (well, almost…. I think the Leica m6 is the best ever…) I have many plans for personal projects this year and funny as it may seem, they include a lot of bike riding.
