Inspiration has found a new face  for me, Hellen van Meene lives in Heiloo, Netherlands. I am stunned by so many of her images. The great part about all of this, Helen is coming to NYC. What is even better is that In this public lecture, van Meene talks with Jörg Colberg, the founder and editor of the pioneering photo blog Conscientious. Here are the details.

The sadest part of all of this, I leave town for a 12 day trip on September 12th and will be missing this amazing event. But this post os for the greater good of mankind. Those of you who can make it, I’m jealous.


Let’s Go Sailing

September 3, 2009

As promised in an earlier post, here are images of Devin Sprague, the nephew, sailing into the waters of Mattapoisett, MA. Sailing hits Devin’s sweet spot! It makes Devin happier than I’ve ever seen him be. We researched the wind speed, made sure it had the miles per hour we wanted and sailed into the water. The Captain was young, daring and ambitious. The photographer and the assistant were managing camera and lights and the sunlight and the water were like marmalade on fresh toast. Click on the images for a larger view!

Firescape views

You really feel gratitude when a Sunset you see from your firescape is as memorable as some of the most breathtaking skies you might have ever seen… 20090821-_RET022420090821-_RET021120090821-_RET0225

Devin Sprague

September 1, 2009

Devin Sprague, my nephew has been of much intrigue to me lately. Let’s face it, the chance to be in the company of a 16 year old is rare; 20 and up is a different story, but 16 is a pretty amazing age. It’s Devin’s summer break right now, so he is earning some spare cash by helping out his dad who is Master Electrician and besides having other summer fun with his friends he has spent a good chunk of time restoring a recently acquired sailboat.

After acquiring this dream machine, Devin has taken the time to get this beauty oiled and souped up. It’s a treat to see his face light up when some one looks at him and says let’s go sailing! We started with shooting some portraits of him and his boat at his home base. Then we drove this boat up to the wharf in Mattapoisett, MA. and Yes I was in photo heaven. Stay tuned for the images of sailing to follow. But first, here are some portraits.
