Close, but no cigar
“You’re submitting that shot of the two nuns, right?” I was thinking about it, I told my friend, but life was busy and I shoot mostly for fun now. Well, mostly. It’s still an adrenaline shot to the ego seeing one of my images on a display ad around town or accompanying a news story.…
Rock star teachers
I’m married to a teacher. I get a front row seat witnessing how hard teachers work and how dedicated they are to their students — their kids. I have, on more than one occasion, used the phrase “rock star” to describe my wife and her colleagues. Once a year, I get to use that phrase…
Protesting Policy 321
Yesterday, Central Bucks School District teachers and students protested Policy 321, a controversial rule enacted by the school board that bans teachers from talking about or displaying decor that advocates for “any partisan, political, or social policy issue.” The ban includes the display of Pride flags. I was able to step out to record the…
The signs don’t lie
Stumbled across this article in Digital Camera World highlighting some of the iconic destinations around the world that don’t allow — or heavily frown upon — travelers taking photos. I’m pretty good about doing my research into local customs before we travel and try to play by the rules. But sometimes an image appears in…
Photos in the wild
It’s always a blast seeing images I’ve created used to help tell stories in the media. Like this one I captured during the abortion rights rally in Doylestown, Pa., that was used by PBS/NPR. And this one from last year’s Bucks County Classic used by the Bucks County Herald.
Out and About Along the Back Roads of Bucks County
Saddle season on the East Coast. When the remnants of late season snowstorms melt into the warming ground of spring. I took the Subaru Outback — my new post-pandemic, let’s-go-on-an-adventure vehicle — for a gallop around the back roads of Bucks County, Pa., at the end of the day. These are a few of the…
2020 in Photos
I present to you my 2020 in photographs — an escape from the modern day version of “The Stand” we’re living in.

Before and After: Autumn fashion shoot
The last couple of weeks have teetered between the last gasps of autumn and the onset of winter. The mid-Atlantic leaves have dropped from their branches. Reds, yellows, and oranges have drained from the leaves. Blue skies have desaturated into grays. And the ongoing pandemic has crushed the studio shoot dreams for many photographers. Bring…
Our Responsibility to Do the Right Thing
My mom and I were talking on the phone this afternoon. I was in the car driving to provide photojournalistic cover for one of the local activist organizations staging a sit-in to support a local business under fire from the Republican Party for the owner’s public support of the Black Lives Matter movement. She told…
