Interview #1 on May 7, 2016


Strawberry Slices

This photo, Strawberry Slices, was taken in my darkened garage with a simple headlamp and was used by the website on March 9, 2017.  The article was called "32 Delicious Examples Of Food Photography. Guaranteed To Inspire And Make Your Tummy Rumble" and this photo was #17 of 32 on their list.  Oddly enough, the photo was taken exactly one year earlier, on March 9, 2016, with a Canon EOS 6D and the EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens.

Hand in Hand

Hand in Hand was taken at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.  This photo was selected for the digital exposition in Minimalism at the MIA Photo Fair at The Mall - Porta Nuova in Milan, Italy from March 10-13, 2017.  This was shot with a Canon EOS 6D with an EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens on June 23, 2015.

Taken at White Sands National Monument, my daughters were walking ahead of me singing 'Let It Go' from Frozen because the white sand reminded them of snow.

Vati Stairs

          Vati Stairs was taken at the Vatican Museums and was used by the website on December 22, 2016. The article was called "A Curved Line Is The Loveliest Distance Between Two Points." and this photo was #1 of 15 on their list. I went to this location hoping to shoot a different shot than every other photographer but ended up shooting the exact same photo...  This was shot with a Canon Rebel T3i with an EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens on March 18, 2013.

Sometimes you end up shooting the same photo as everyone else...

White Sands Walk

This was shot with a Canon EOS 6D with an EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens on June 23, 2015.

IB Sunset #3

          IB Sunset #3 made it in to the 2015 Exposure Award, Sky Collection Book (Pg. 63).  I didn't win the 2015 Exposure Award but I'm thrilled one of my photos made it in their book.  This was the first time I went to shoot the sunset at Imperial Beach, California.  Since this photo, I've gone back many times and it hasn't failed me yet.  This was shot with a Canon EOS 6D with an EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens on March 28, 2015.

          The photo, Vesuvius, has been used numerous times.  I had taken many photos of Mount Vesuvius while living in Naples, but they were mostly sunrise shots.  This was the only photo I took at sunset with the sun behind me, I guess I should have taken more...  This was shot with a Canon Rebel XSi with the EF-S 18-55mm kit lens on December 21, 2011.

                                 - January 5, 2016  Sunmaster Blog article entitled "Naples named among top 2016 destinations".  

                                 - December 2, 2014 issue of Symmetry Magazine for an article entitled "Muon versus the volcano".  

                                 - March 2012 article of the Digital Photography School called "Travel Photography Inspiration Project: Italy".
