Focus Philadelphia 2014!

I'm so excited to announce that one of my photos was selected as one of the top 100 submitted to the annual Focus Philadelphia competition via ASMP! I can't wait to see the finished book that the photo will be printed in, and I feel so honored to be included in such a highly esteemed group of photographers. 

Strength © 2013. Model: Gabryal Rabinowitz

I've always loved how this photograph turned out, and I could not have asked for a better model in Gabryal Rabinowitz; is he for real with those muscles?! Looking at the images from that shoot, I can see just how far I've come and how much I have improved my work in the last few years. I hope I can get to do more of these soon!

Rainy Days in Prague

I was fortunate enough to have two of my best friends get married this past year, and one of them had the wonderful pleasure of holding their wedding in Prague.

While I was there primarily for my friend's big day, I had to take advantage of exploring a city I'd never been to before.

There's something so intriguing and beautiful about European architecture, I can never get enough. The weather wasn't on my side that day, so I felt black and white did a little more justice for the true feeling of what it was like to be there.

It may have been a little cold and fairly rainy during my brief stint in Prague, but I think I still managed to get some great shots, exploring the streets of the city on my own.

Here are the few I'd love to share with you, and hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do.

Missing Sweet Summer

I don't know about you, but right around this time of the year, I hit my winter wall; that period where spring seems much too far away, and winter much too cold, and all I wish for is past warmer days. What I wouldn't give to be out and about hiking in Jim Thorpe right now, back at Glen Onoko Falls. 

A few days ago, I was going back through the photos from my last trip there, and remembered some panoramas I'd been meaning to edit. In my spare time, I finally finished this one, so in longing for summer's return, I wanted to share it with all of you. Can't wait to get back out and take more photos of such a beautiful town!
