  1. Dale Chihuly Glass Exhibition in Montreal

    I got a chance to see some (more) Dale Chihuly glass at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The display was incredible considering the amount of work and precision that goes into each piece of glass. Most of the pics below were taken with my D7000 and either a 50mm f/1.8 or 18-55mm kit lens.

  2. Cappadocia, Turkey - An amazing place to take pics

    Cappadocia in Turkey is an incredible place. The rock formations, called fairy chimneys, were molded over thousands of years by volcanic activity followed by wind and water erosion. The soft rock was easy to carve and early Christians carved out the rock to live and pray in them. I got a chance to visit the region, and it did not disappoint. I would ...

  6. Bethlehem Steel

    I had always known that my great grandfather worked at a steel mill in the 20s, but it wasn't until recently that I found out it was Bethlehem Steel. After doing some quick research on the company, I realized that a lot of the original furnaces were still standing, despite a casino being built close by (which is steel mill themed).

  7. Wedding Photography

    Wedding photography is a niche that requires a certain kind of talent. You can't just point the camera at a person and start shooting. You have to see emotion, feel moments that sometimes only last seconds, direct family members, and translate that all into a beautifully composed picture.
