Gone to the Dogs

on
On Monday and Tuesday I had the fortune to photograph the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. The show is one of the nation’s oldest traditions. Westminster officials say the only sporting event that is older is the Kentucky Derby. The show seemed more of a beauty pageant than a dog show. At this […] [Read More]

Boxing

on
A few weeks ago I discovered the Harambee Center in downtown Danbury. Before I lived in Danbury, I spent a few years living in Philadelphia and one of the requirements for residency was watching Rocky. Luckily I saw the movie many years before. What I took away from the movie, aside from how tiring it […] [Read More]

Behind the scenes with Dalai

on
Some may ask what was it like to photograph His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama(news stories and galleries here and here). It was exhilarating, exhausting and extremely frustrating. First of all, I was thrilled to be allowed to be there to cover his talk. It was a once in a lifetime chance to see an influential leader impart his worldly and […] [Read More]

on
In preparation for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s visit to Danbury, a reporter and I examined the local Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Redding. Here are a few of my favorites. [Read More]

War and Peace

on
Last Thursday I had a Leo Tolstoy kind of day. My first assignment was at WestConn to photograph a march to celebrate the United Nation’s International Day of Peace. The assignment shortly afterwards took me to the traveling Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall in front of the War Memorial. The irony wasn’t lost on me, it […] [Read More]

Weather Sunshine or Rain

on
The weather this summer has been notorious for being sunny and humid one minute, then changing abruptly to severe thunderstorms the next. People in New England have been known to say if you don’t like the weather, wait a few moments. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently said that July 2012 was the hottest month on record. […] [Read More]

Everyone loves a circus! (Well…most everyone)

on
Yesterday I was assigned to cover a good ‘ol fashioned circus in Trumbull in the parking lot of the Westfield Trumbull mall. Ringling Bros. circus is, in my opinion, to showy and glitzy. This circus, the Cole Bros. venue, still retains a close-up feel, like the ones I remember going to on class trips in […] [Read More]

The Long Embrace

on
My conscious self didn’t realize what my eye was seeing as a theme for the past few weeks. Maybe it is the weather warming up or maybe it is that time of year with graduations, proms and high school championships that bring it on. The long embrace, the kiss the spreading of love to one another. It […] [Read More]

DAYGLOW!

on
Lines of college-aged people waited in queues while hudling together for warmth during long stretches of time in the evening cold of late April, many with only undershirts and shorts on, at Western Connecticut State University’s O’Neill Center on the westside campus in anticipation for Dayglow. Dayglow is a world-wide tour that bills themselves as “The World’s Largest Paint Party.” They say they fuse high-energy […] [Read More]

Baseball is Back

on
When I photograph a baseball game it brings me back to my time growing up in Iowa. I always followed the Chicago Cubs, especially with an announcer like Harry Caray singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” I was hooked on baseball for life. It also helped that “Field of Dreams” was filmed a short […] [Read More]
