For as long as I can remember I have always loved music.  When I was in middle school my uncle gave me his old trumpet and I joined the school band.  I loved learning to play my trumpet.  That trumpet was battered and bruised, and the mustard-colored case was literally falling apart.  Even so, I carried it with pride.  After I learned to read music, I used to go to my room to record songs on my mini boom box with a built-in cassette recorder.  I would then painstakingly score the music so I could play it back on my trumpet.  The truth is that I as a very solid trumpet player, but I didn't really have the "it" factor, so I gave up the trumpet to pursue other interests.  That didn't stop me from listening to, taping, or even buying music.  In fact, when I got my first check in 10th grade from my part-time job, I spent almost all of it on albums (which I still have, by the way).  Even though I didn't continue as a musician, I still manage to stay closely connected to the world of music.  I love the artistry and the passion that musicians display on stage.  Although I am no longer on the stage, there's nothing to prevent me from capturing the artistry of music.

So who says engagement photos have to the boring?  I loved shooting this adventurous couple.  We shot a series of these "floating in mid-air" photos and they got a lot of "oohs and ahhs" at the wedding.

My folks from DC will be able to appreciate this shot, my interpretation of "The Awakening."  At the time, it was still in its original Hains Point location.  It has since been moved to the National Harbor in Prince George's County.  This photo only depicts three of the five sections of the sculpture.  If you ever visit the National Harbor be sure to visit.

Well, I'm back.  I'm sorry, I'm sorry.  Going out of town got me off track but I'm back, and I'm here to stay.  Yesterday I was driving around with a client looking for fresh locations and stumbled across a psychedelic blue door which served as a very cool background.  Of course, I had to get creative with it.
