Sneak Peeks: Alexa & Clayton at Battle of the Hook

So, when I was at the Battle of the Hook back in October, I had two sets of couples sign up for portrait sessions.  I really love doing these reenactor portraits, as it’s a really unusual take on the typical “engagement” or “couple” photos that you see floating around everywhere these days.  They’re fun because […]

The Germans are coming to New Oxford

A couple weeks ago I attended “The Liberation of New Oxford” in New Oxford, PA.  For this WWII event, the small town dresses itself up as a wartime French village.  Locals and visitors alike gather in the town square as an invading force of Germans eventually arrives and takes over the town.  Almost immediately they […]

Defiance & Independence at Fort Ticonderoga

Early tomorrow morning I am heading up to Fort Ticonderoga for my yearly expedition to shoot their biggest event of the year.  Ticonderoga is one of my favorite sites.  The fort itself has been preserved, maintained, and restored in a wonderful fashion, the setting is to die for, the staff is friendly, helpful, knowledgable, and […]

Triptych: Tank Farm Portraits

I’ve been re-processing some of my photos from the Tank Farm event after reading Piet Van den Eynde’s The Power of Black & White, a Masterclass ebook on working in B&W in Adobe Lightroom.  I didn’t shoot much at that event, but I am really happy with some of the portraits that I got, especially these three.

Fort Ticonderoga Reconstructed Barracks

Today’s photo comes from my shoot at Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York, back in July.  This is their new, reconstructed barracks building which holds offices, exhibits, classroom space, and a small theater which shows a film about the fort.  It’s a beautiful building, made especially lovely by the warm, slanting light of the late […]
