Photography Session: Taylor And Stefanie

22 10 2017

Hey everyone. Welcome to another installment of my blog. I know it’s been a while since my last post. So much has happened and work has been nonstop. But even so, I managed to find some time to do some photography and I present to you another photography session.


This past weekend, I took photos of Stefanie and Taylor in Poughkeepsie, NY. This go around, I used my new camera (5d mark iv) and loved how the pictures came out as compared to my canon 60d. The photo above was taken inside the train station. The great thing about the area we shot in was how the windows helped soften the sunlight coming through. We managed to pull off a good number of photos at this spot.


The second location was a nearby park. With the sun coming in and out, almost every shot was different due to the constant changing in natural light. But at the same time, it made some of the pictures stand out well because of it. The only negative about this location was that there were no benches that faced the other way, which would’ve given me the option of the getting the mid hudson bridge in the background.



So I may release more down the road as I have a good number of shots. If anyone is interested in having their pictures taken, you can contact me by email, which is So until next time, have a great Sunday everyone!


Return from hiatus and a new camera

2 07 2017

Hey everyone! Welcome to another edition of my blog. I know it’s been a long time since my last post. Due to having so many things going on, it’s difficult to blog on a consistent basis. And with work picking up again, it’ll be even tougher.

With the free time I have today, I’m happy to share news that I recently got myself a new camera. It’s the Canon 5d mark iv and I’m already loving it as I’ve taken a few pics with it. Once I get to fully take advantage of all of it’s unique features, it’s gonna be fun filled ride!

Taken during Veteran’s Day Parade

During the Veteran’s Day Parade was when I first started using this camera. I did everything manual and was using a 24-70mm lens. I was amazed at how the images came out with the weather and everyone constantly moving. I took a lot of good photos that day and the one above was one the top photos. The day overall was good. Despite the heavy rain, there was a decent turnout.


And here’s another photo I’ve taken. This was nearly a month ago as I took photos for Taylor and his co-workers at the Captiva Group. Again, I shot everything on full manual and I alternated between different lens. Photos came out great and everyone at that company loved them.

As things get more busy, it’ll be tough to be consistent but I will try to post every weekend if I can. On another note, if you’re reading this and are interested in having your photos taken, feel free to contact me by email:

Photography Session: Dylan and BTS at Couture Modeling

4 09 2014

Hey what’s up everyone? Welcome to the first September 2014 edition of my blog. And what way to start off the month with another installment of my photography series. I had the opportunity of shooting a few of the models of Couture Modeling as well as taking behind the scenes photos at the studio during this past month. But today, I’m only going to showcase two of the many photos.

Model: Dylan Jones

Model: Dylan Jones

I shot this photo earlier last month. When scouting locations to shoot Dylan, I stumbled upon an bench that was right by a tree. While Dylan was shooting his session with another photographer, I repositioned the bench and was coming up with ideas for poses and camera angles. During my shoot, I had him mostly sitting on the bench and utilized only a softbox for a key light. With that day being overcast, I didn’t have to worry at all about the sun. Camera wise, I shot Dylan entirely on the 50mm lens with the aperture at f/6.3, ISO at 100, and the shutter speed at 1/125.

Hair and Makeup Artist Kristin Pardee

I also shot a good share of BTS photos. I took some photos of models getting their makeup and hair done as well as the HMU artist herself. For this photo, the light from her table lit up her neck fairly well and it was a good shot to get of her tattoo. For this, I had aperture at f/1.8, ISO at 500, and shutter speed at 1/200.

If you check out the links, you’ll see more of the models of Couture Modeling as well as see more of Kristin’s work. So that’s it for now. Check back over the weekend as I look to show more of the people working behind the scenes. Until then, cya!
