I thank you all for reading what little I have posted over the years. I hope to be much better at sharing in the new year. The new plat form makes it much easier for me to do that :).

It's begining to look a lot like......

FALL!!!!!! At least in Garmisch, Germany it is.

I am finally back home in Naples for more than just a couple of days. Had a great time at the

Adam Barker of Adam Barker Photography put on a great workshop for us. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate most of the time but I still got some beautiful images. But then again it is hard not to in such a beautiful place.
I must say a bit of what he taught, I already knew, but I still learned several new things. He critiqued 10 images of all of the students and I was very happy with what he had to say about my work. Obviously my work is not perfect but definitely very nice things to hear  about what I could have done better and what I did right etc... If you ever get the chance to attend one of his workshops go for it. You won't regret it. I have attended several workshops in general over the years and don't regret any of them. You always learn something!
I made some great new friends. Look forward to keeping in touch with them.

These are not my favorites from the workshop so be on the look out for more :). I have to decide which one I am submitting to the contest to run in the Stars and Stripes paper. And there are 3-4 more images that I like better than these that I have to choose between.

This image is from the last morning of my stay at the resort. It was the day after the workshop ended. We finally had a nice sunrise after the rain and snow. So I took advantage of it.

This is the view of the Zugspitze from the Riessersee Hotel. Don't you think this is a perfect location to shoot from? I sure do.

This photograph was made the last morning of the workshop. After the freshly fallen snow had arrived on the Zugspitze.
So tell me what you think.

It's been a while......

I know it has been almost 2 months since I have posted. Life has been crazy busy. We were actually out of the country for a little over a month and I didn't want to advertise that we were not home. I am working on client portraits and slowly downloading all of the images (at least the ones I can find cards for) from our trip. I will post some as I get to them.
For now here is a video of my families one day trip to Austria........

Hope you enjoy!
Sorry been trying to post for 2 days. The quality is low because the internet connection is that bad.

Upcoming Promotions and Giving Back....

Yes it has been awhile but I think things are settling down and I have a few moments to breathe. 
Since this post is about "giving back" I thought it would be good to start with a quote.

16 years and counting.....

Hard to belive that Gary and I have been married for 16 years. We celebrated our Anniversary with a trip to Roccaraso in the Abruzzi region of Italy. We rented a little place just on the east side of the mountain in a little village ( I will update with the name and more photos). We went to ski, and had a fabulous time. It is a bit different than the skiing we have done in the Poconos but fun none the less. Here are some photos I took with the Canon underwater camera that I have. And it is a good thing that it is waterproof as it was burried in the snow a couple of times lol. You know a photographer can not leave home without some sort of camera haha. Hope you enjoy the photos. I will post more hopefully tomorrow.
The kids all bundled up. We were told we would freeze, but by the time we got to the top we were sweating lol. Maybe because we were so close to the sun?

Gary and I with about 5 layers of clothing haha.

In case you can't see the writing in 2nd photo, I circled the building and wrote that those are buildings. They look like little hills until you realize that the little black speck is a builing! These are the same photos.

Just another view from the top of the mountain.

I swear we paid for the view. And these photos don't do it justice. 

Let the skiing begin....
Gary and Sommer ready to hit the trail. And those are mountains in the bottom of the blue too.

Got all 3 from vendors at a market here in Napoli. I will definitely be purchasing more! They are all so soft, I can't wait to use them. Who is up for a session?
