CITY 2010: March-April

By in Photopalooza, Rochester, Roundups, Work

This is the second post in my series of selected work done for CITY Newspaper in 2010. Check out the first post, if you missed it, for Jan-Feb and then check back each week for another pair of months until they’re done! Apartments and bobcats and dolls! OH MY! Spring is my least favorite season […]

CITY 2010: Jan-Feb

By in Photopalooza, Rochester, Roundups, Work

I love end-of-the-year wrap-up posts: I love seeing what people’s favorite photos from the year were, or what were their defining memories. Since we know I’m terribly slow at blogging, I don’t often attempt them. But this year is gonna be different because I want to be the kind of person who DOES make end-of-the-year […]

Secret Spidey Claus

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza

WE HAVE SPIDERS LIVING IN OUR CHRISTMAS TREE. And not just one. Not just two. No no, like a whole colony of them. Emotions range from creeped-out-but-handling-it (Me) to going-to-die-of-terror-any-second (Adam). There appear to be (possibly?) two kinds of them, but we’re not sure. They seem to “jump” a bit more than we think spiders […]

ImageOut 18: Second Weekend

By in Movies, Photopalooza, Rochester, Roundups, Work

The closing weekend of ImageOut was amazing: insanely fun and jam-packed! I can’t believe we fit so much in, especially amidst all the films! After our film on Thursday night, Adam and I headed to Jay’s Diner for late-night food, only to run into Michael Gamilla and director Keith Hartman (“You Should Meet My Son”) […]

ImageOut 18: First Weekend

By in Movies, Photopalooza, Rochester, Work

ImageOut’s opening weekend was really great this year: talking with friends I haven’t seen in a year, taking a lot of photos of patrons and guests, and seeing some VERY good movies! “Undertow,” in particular, was a truly wonderful film that’s gonna stick with me for awhile. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, but […]

Backdrops & Crossed Arms

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Work

Brian, for his website; Whitney, for her senior photos; Matt W, just because. For my cousin Whitney’s senior photos, we did a mix of her in her soccer uniform in front of her High School, in front of blue and black backdrops in a “studio” setting, and a few of her at the George Eastman House gardens.

“Our State Fair is a Great State Fair”

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Roundups

For a day of downtime in between mountains of work, MAMA’s House, honorary member Kevin G, and “Friends of the House” Brian & Alana all ventured to the New York State Fair on its opening weekend this season. It was very State Fair-like: barns of animals, delicious fried food, Native American dance demonstrations, seizure-inducing midway […]

Surprise Sixtieth

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Roundups, Work

Back in July, Rachel & Brenda threw their mom a surprise 60th birthday party. Beach-themed, in the church basement, with lots of friends, it was a happenin’ good time. We ate, we danced, we wished Ms. Rinere a happy birthday, and everyone marveled at the awesome old newspaper photos of her & Mr. Ludwig (“Wow! […]

This Week in CITY: August 18-24

By in Photopalooza, Rochester, Work

I get to shoot a wide variety of stuff for CITY: locations I’ve never been, interesting people in the Rochester area, restaurants I’ve never heard of. I try to learn something during each photo outing, so even if I don’t get to read the final paper cover-to-cover I take something away from each assignment. This […]

The P-Team

By in Photopalooza

People e-mail me every week looking for photos, from CITY images to events I attended to parties I was at, from last week to 5 years ago. I want so badly to be done with all of them and NOT be years behind anymore. So I just wanted to let everyone know that my new […]
