I have finally got my website to the point where I can say it is 95% functional and up and running. There are still a few additions that are coming but for the most part it is done. For all my clients I have added an ordering section where you can view all your proof images online and place the order rather than having to email orders back and forth, makes it easier for everyone! check it out

keep this in mind:

I really cant even begin to explain how amazing today was. I guess I could start off with the minor detail that by the time I got home from work my new lens from B&H showed up on my doorstep but that was only the beginning... I have been anxiously awaiting for today to come because a few months ago I singed up to attend David Jay and Jasmine Star's "Free to Succeed" seminar in Boston. My cousin Keri helped me get my foot in the door with the industry last summer when I decided I wanted to start turning my passion for photography into a business. I was immediately hooked on looking at other photographers and finding out what I could lean from them to improve myself and get a great experience at the same time. 
Today that was all accomplished in a matter of hours. We went into Boston, met with a great group of photographers and had dinner. During dinner it was brought up several times that one of the greatest things about these types of seminars is not only what you can learn from the seminar but the people you can meet while attending. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to a lot of friendly people that were all willing to talk and hang out, thats the great thing about our industry right now, that people who are essentially competitors are all willing to work together and share ideas. 
As for the seminar itself, I couldn't even sum it up in words if I tried. Since I have started photography a year ago I have realized that it is a major time,money, and effort commitment that you must be willing to have to get the result you want. If you are willing to put in the commitment than you work will show. While still being a student in high school it is often times difficult for me to efficiently run my business, balance other jobs, get school work done, and most importantly spend time with friends and family. What DJ and Jasmine made very clear to me today in his seminar was that you need to make your business work for you and not the other way around. Thank you so much for everything, it is truly amazing how just by spending a few hours talking and listening to them my entire business approach and lifestyle has changed. 
I look forward to giving you all some updates on senior picture sessions tomorrow!

Glad to see Becker got to make it, almost got stuck in JFK

Hello as you can see there is a slight change of scenery around here, just thought I would change things up a bit and I wanted to incorporate my new logo. Stay tuned for senior pictures coming next week! Enjoy


New Flash!

Hello all!

I really wanted to get a chance to post this yesterday but I ended up spending too much time playing with it that I forgot to make my post. I decided it was about time to get myself a decent flash, I have always been against flashes but after doing some indoor events and such I figured it would be a smart move. I have also been reading a lot about other ways to use flash to enhance your portraits outdoors using flash in bright sunlight! I cant wait to really get some good use out of it with up and coming senior picture sessions. Below are just a few trial shots from when I was playing around yesterday

A special day

Hello all! 

Yesterday I had the pleasure to go along and work a very special occasion for a few friends of mine. My friend's Josh and Jojo were the first people I had ever met in the town of North Andover when I moved here a few years ago and I have become great friends with them since then. I have been with them through the years and witnessed some amazing moments in their lives. As a photographer it is an amazing feeling to be able to capture moments such as a baby's first halloween holiday or the first picture of an engaged couple. I was lucky enough to be the one to capture all these moments for Josh and Jojo and yesterday I finally got to be there for the most important day of all: the wedding! Whether it was helping Jojo get in her wedding dress or taking pictures at the wonderful reception I was very pleased to have the chance to photograph their wedding. I have posted a few sneak peak shots below and I cant wait to show you guys the rest! Have a great time on your trip and hope to see you soon

"New Equipment"

Hopefully with the addition of this new "business equipment" here it will get me to post and give updates more often. I've seen other people including photographers post from their iphone all the time and I have always thought it was a cool thing to be able to post on the go. Now I am finally doing it! Totally worth the 2 hour wait in line at the Apple store by the way! stay tuned :)

The band is called Bakies and they put on a great show, I was very glad to get the chance to grab some shots of them while I was there. Thanks guys enjoy!

On It's Way

Hey Everyone,

I know I say it all the time that there will be updates to come and such but this time I want to give you all an update on what's going on. The photography business is really starting to pick up, I have a few friend's weddings booked for this summer and I have agreed to accept some of my peers for senior yearbook portraits this summer. I have been working on some new ideas for package ordering, a new logo and hopefully very soon a complete blog makeover with a business section to keep my clients up to date on what is going on until I get my website up and running. I will also be making some posts soon on recent events such as my friends concert and a pre-wedding party that I shot. I promise it will all be coming soon! Have a great holiday tomorrow and stay tuned for what's to come. Thank you for all your support :)

Hazy, Hot and Humid!


Wow.... not sure that it could possibly be any hotter out today but thank god for the great sunlight this afternoon! I got to spend an hour or so with my friends Josh and Jojo down at a garden reservation to take some shots for their wedding invitation. It was a bit warm walking around the gardens and such but totally worth it! I got plenty of pictures for them and they picked this one out that will appear on their wedding invitation going out next week. Congratulations guys!

Hey everyone! 
Long time no talk! Anyways I have had a lot going on lately and I figured I wanted to share some more of my life with you :) 

To start off I wanted to congratulate my Dad Scott for graduating from Boston College with his Masters degree. We attended the graduation ceremony a few weeks back and the day was great, beautiful weather and a huge milestone was passed for everyone graduating from such a amazing school. 

Shortly after my Dad's graduation the following weekend I got to photograph and witness yet another amazing milestone passed. I worked for my cousin Keri at Sweet Whispers Photography, we got the chance to spend the day with Denise and Ed at their beautiful wedding in Groveland, MA. 
There is no doubt that the graduation and wedding were both days that brought great joy, this past Friday was most certainly an emotional day that brought sadness, remembrance and nostalgia to our lives. My grandmother has worked at Brookwood School in Manchester, MA for the past 33 years of her life. The school and the people that work there have been a huge part of our family and lives to the point where it has become a seamless boundary. She has brought a lot to the school and the school has given a lot back to her in return. Although it was sad to watch the ceremony and hear all her coworkers talk about how much they will miss my grandmother, it was also somewhat uplifting to know that a huge part of her life has passed, she is ready to move on and live the relaxing life of retirement, much love and congratulations Grammy! I will be posting a link to a slideshow that will be made to a DVD later on. 

Well I am very glad I got the chance to give an update to you all on what has been going on, thank you for checking in and please keep in touch. Thanks

Be My Guest...

Hey everyone!

I am glad to see your still checking in despite the serious lack of posts lately but when you look below I think you will know why. 
           Beauty and the Beast at North Andover High School is officially over and done with. I haven't decided yet whether or not I am more sad or glad about this, it is for sure a big relief but the memories will never be forgotten. We had a truly amazing and talented cast, a devoted pit, a crew who spent more time at the auditorium than at their house and probably the most amazing production staff I will ever work with in my life. I want to send thanks out to our vocal director Chris Lafond, a volunteer graduate of the high school who we couldn't have lived without, Tim Driscoll another volunteer graduate of NAHS who provided sound for the show, our amazing conductor Rob and his partner Ann, our costume team lead by Karen Kramer and last but not least our dedicated, caring Director: Melissa Downey who provided the vision and dream for this breathtaking production. A very special and separate thanks goes out to our Assistant Director Jennifer Gillespie for her constant hard work and dedication while pregnant throughout the rehearsal schedule. Whether or not you look at it as a good or bad thing, Jen was always willing to keep everyone on track, and keep the cast well behaved and disciplined :) I took a few pictures throughout tech week but for the most part pictures were taken using my camera by Tim, Chris and Ms. Downey. I have no idea who took what pictures but here's a few to check out and I thank everyone who came to see the show and if you didn't: heres a little glimpse of what you missed :)

::Black and White Party::

Hey everyone!
I am trying my best to stay updated on here but life is crazy at the moment and I am doing the best I can. Believe it or not I am still able to have some time to take a few shots here and there and luckily because I serve on my school's student council, I was able to get a chance to take shots for a school dance. The theme was black and white and the idea was to take b&w pictures, I have many shots that students wanted me to take of them and there friends but heres a little preview, I hope you like them. I want to thank everyone who attended the dance because all student council events are organized to be fundraisers for senior scholarships at the end of the year along with many other events we fund. I will try to keep you all posted as much as possible and thanks for checking in :)

Hey everyone,
Hope you haven't all forgotten me due to the lack of posts on here but for my loyal bloggers I am still alive just an obvious lack of posts lately. Last weekend was Junior Prom '08 at my school and aside from spending a longggg time setting up in the morning it was a great time, and even that wasn't too bad :) We all took a limo from one of my friends house, it was a really great time. Everything was amazing as expected, food, dance, decorations, but more importantly the people and the memories we had and will always remember. Below is a few pictures that were taken with my camera, I will admit I cant take the credit for them because they were actually taken by my dates sister but nevertheless they are pictures and they are here! Enjoy

Devon, Mike, Mike, Me and my date Cassie :)

Something New!

I am wayyyy past due for an update for you all and what a perfect opportunity to post a new type of shooting for me. I have tried sports photography before (football, soccer etc..) but never have I tried paintball photography. One of my friends Tommy ,from Andover, had asked me last night if I would be interested in coming with his team today to an indoor paintball spot in New Hampshire so I went with them and took some pictures for their team. Definitely quite the experience it was a great time and I got some great action shots! :) Check it out below and I might put some more on here as I work through them.
