Apple Inc Retail Team

This week I have the privilege of photographing the Apple retail team in Greenwich, CT.  The photo shoot will be head shots of all the store managers and employees.

Camera Bag Part 2 of 4

As a twenty plus year user of Domke and Billingham bags, I switched to ONA in 2014 and never looked back.  Don't get me wrong, Domke and Billingham are top pro choices and fantastic bags but no longer fit my needs.  The only traditional bags I own now are the The Prince Street messenger (pictured left) and The Camps Bay backpack (pictured right).  Both bags are made by ONA and they fit the Fujifilm X system perfectly.  The Prince Street holds one body and two lenses for the day, plus room for extras. The Camps Bay can hold the entire Fujifilm X system with room to spare, including the 15" MacBook Pro Retina or iPad Pro 12.9".

Goodbye, Nikon. Hello, Fuji.

For the first time in just over thirty years I have dropped Nikon professional gear. I now own Fujifilm X Series profession cameras and lenses. More on this in a future post.

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens

Picked up a new lens today. For me Its a great landscape and photojournalism prime.

North Walpole, New Hampshire

After twenty years of pursuing the opportunity, I finally got a chance to work inside the turntable yard and I enjoyed every minute. Everyone was fun to work with, plus they gave me plenty of options and the men were super accommodating. A good chance I will be back to do more photography of train parts and of a wheel assembly being taken apart. This is an ongoing project that I started twenty years ago and can be seen here.

Railroad Section Added

Today I created a new section highlighting trains on my web site.

Rutland, Vermont

I had an exciting time riding along on the Green Mountain Railroad freight train today. The support from the main office, the engineer and conductor was amazing. The GMRC and I teamed up on a joint project that is ongoing and I will be posting more photographs in the future, stay tuned.

Day Trip

Another great day trip in Troy, NY with Karell. Ended up with over 400 final photos now on to post.

Santa's Land - Putney, Vermont

Driving past the famous Santa’s Land amusement park today, I remembered as a child the happy times my family and I had there. We would visit the park around the holidays in the early 70’s and my favorite memory was seeing the Spider Monkeys. In 2014, the grounds were closed for good, allegedly for poor management and cruelty to animals. I’m sad to see it closed and reading about the reason for the closure, if any of it is true.
