I’m taking a shower in a Hobbit hole. That’s the lead I came up with as the warm, delicious water washed a day of caves off me. Contenders were The hobbit hole has heated blankets or No wifi in Baggins’ place. The one ring to rule them all is embedded in our bed and I look forward to falling asleep in Middle Earth, or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

She’s no Muggle.
This was a fun year, photographing weddings around Metro Detroit and Oakland County, Michigan. Here is just a small sampling of the couples I was lucky enough to spend time with. With decades of experience in news photography, I really enjoy shooting candid photos in a documentary photojournalism style. I worked for The Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, AP — The Associated Press, and many other news organizations. Yes, I love shooting portraits too! Thank you to all “my” awesome brides and grooms.
I was lucky enough to photograph three great brides and grooms in three fantastic weddings in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan this year. The couples were fun, really enjoyed themselves and allowed me to shoot posed images as well as my passion: candids in a documentary photojournalism style (I am a veteran of The Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, AP — The Associated Press, and many other news organizations).
Here’s a quick answer to a question I get all the time. A query comes in from Google with the search baby photographers near me. Short answer, I love photographing babies and have been doing it for 30 years, even before my wife and I had babies to photograph of our own. Read More
35 years ago my not-yet roommate was belting a song on our college quad about a guy who died in a South African prison. “Who sings about stuff like that?” I wondered.
Peter Gabriel sings about stuff like that.
On that same quad, someone’s radio was playing a boppin’ song from a British band and to this day I remember my introduction to Sting as he sang with his band The Police.
Sting also sings politically charged songs. Peter Gabriel also sings boppin’ songs. They’re on tour together and I got to witness their synthesis last night at The Palace.
“Buckingham Palace?” my cousin Keith joked via text. No, although they’re both British, this was at The Palace of Auburn Hills, Michigan.
