Noah's tux for his Senior Prom arrived a couple of days early so it seemed like a great opportunity to take some moody images with him dressed up with his viola (and of course, fog).
Here's a few images from the West Seneca East Senior High pre-Prom party.
To see more of the images (9 total) please click on the "WSE Prom 2018" link on my Homepage.
Hope you enjoy them!
Last week East Middle School held a Star Wars night for the fifth grade students and their families. It was a fun event with character actors, a showing of "A New Hope" on the big screen in the auditorium, and popcorn and refreshments. The price of admission was a non-perishable food item to benefit the local food pantry. There was a large turnout and the event was a success.
Here's some portraits I took of the characters.
Here's another portrait taken of Ray. I can't decide if I like the color or B&W version the best.
Always LOVE attending the annual Lumagination event at the Buffalo Botanical Gardens with Emma. She's amazing! The compositions she comes up with that I didn't even see! Good to see my friends Keith Foss and Rick Tripi as well.
Here's some of my images from the event.
What do you do to beat the cold winter blues? Set up a black back drop and have a friend over to play around with light for some dramatic portraiture. Here's a few from that session with Ray Ball Jr.
Here's a seven image stitched panorama of the Hidden Village in Buffalo, New York. Stitched in On1 Photo RAW and processed in Capture One Pro. It's like going back in-time to mid 20th century Europe.
I attended a photography workshop with acclaimed photographer Bill Fortney last weekend where we roamed around the old train station in Hamburg. Here's some of my images from the shoot.
Hope you like them.

The Abraham Lincoln Battalion were American volunteers who served in the Spanish Civil War as soldiers, technicians, medical personnel and aviators. They fought with the Spanish Republican forces against General Francisco Franco and his Spanish Rebel Faction from 1936-1938. Approximately 3000 volunteers were involved. The last known surviving member Delmer Berg died on February 28, 2016 at the age of 100.
Here's another image form the Band of Brothers WWII themed shoot.
Did a Band of Brothers WWII themed shoot with our good friend Ray in the fields behind his house. Noah did an excellent job of manning the fog machine to get the look I was after. One flash with a grid and 1/2 CTO. I couldn't decide between the B&W or color image so I posted them both.
Hope you enjoy!
Here's a photo from camp during day 1 of Civil War Days in Genesee Country Village in Mumford, NY. Great fun with a great bunch of guys!
Here's a couple of images from Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina where my family and I spent a week celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Great trip! Great time with family!
Here's a few more from the Civil War portrait shoot last weekend.
Another image from last weekend.
Here's an image from a Civil War themed group portrait session from this past weekend. Ray and Noah. Two flashes - one on Noah and one on Ray, both with 1/4 CTO gels and grids.
Hope you enjoy!!
Our friend and fellow re-enactor Ray Ball visited Forest Lawn Cemetery on Memorial Day to pay tribute to all of the fallen heroes by playing "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipe. Here are a few images...
Memorial Day is for remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for this country to ensure the freedoms we hold so dear.
We had the distinct honor of participating in a ceremony at the Grand Army of the Republic Monument in Forest Lawn Cemetery to honor our fallen heroes.
Take a moment out of your busy schedules to visit a cemetery and read aloud the names inscribed on the grave markers of these soldiers. This is a way to show them that they are not forgotten and to thank them for their selfless sacrifice.
