Paul McCartney in Booklyn, NY 9/19/17

September 24, 2017

Probably the concert of a lifetime - 3rd row, center section seats to see Paul McCartney. I had been looking forward to this show for a long time. I was anxious to see what kind of shots I could get at that close a range. To shoot the concert, I rented the Sony a7rii - the same camera I used for Peter Gabriel and Sting last summer. Although I had my issues with the camera for that concert, I thought the photos were outstanding - some of the best I had every taken - so I had high hopes for ...Read More

Shooting Peter Gabriel and Sting with the Sony a7rii

Jul 6, 2016

Sting at DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts July 2, 2016. Sony has been embarking on an end-around against Canon and Nikon by innovating hard in the mirrorless market. Their flagship a7rii is an amazing, full-frame 42.4M-pixel camera capable of 4K video. Without the need for a mirror, the camera is much smaller than its DSLR counter-parts, ideal for a wide variety of situations, particularly concerts. Many venues ban DSLRs, but these smaller cameras are allowed in, as was the case ...Read More


How I Use A Music Editing Technique from Cassettes for Today’s Videos

May 31, 2016

Extending a music track to meet the duration of a video. It's something I take for granted now. It's very rare that a piece of music will match the length of a video production. Inevitably an edit (or several!) will be required to either extend or reduce the duration of the music so it will fit the video. I've done this so many times now that I don't think much about it - it's become rote for me - but ...Read More


A Day Spent With an Afghanistan Veteran on behalf of the Homeland Heroes Foundation

Mar 13, 2016

The Homeland Heroes Foundation Last year I was introduced to the Homeland Heroes Foundation, a New Hampshire-based non-profit charity that assists active duty military, veterans and their families in a variety of ways. For this year's big fund raiser, I volunteered to put together a video to explain what their organization does, who they help, and what impact they are having on veteran's lives and families in hopes of attracting more donations in the form of either money, household items, ...Read More


The Who at the TD Garden in Boston Massachusetts, March 7, 2016

Mar 8, 2016

Pete Townshend at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts March 7, 2016. This year The Who embarked on "The Who hits 50 Tour!" Well, actually, the tour was originally scheduled for 2015, but after Roger Daltrey contracted viral Meningitis they postponed the 2015 North American tour to 2016. I decided to purchase one of the VIP packages to get access to seats in the front sections on the floor of the Garden. The VIP package also included watching the band's sound ...Read More


An Interview with Jerry Marotta of the Security Project

Dec 15, 2015

Jerry Marotta, drummer for The Security Project. 1969. That's the year I became "musically aware" - when I started listening to the radio and buying music. I remember at that age being very shy about asking to buy a 45 from behind the counter that I would buy an album instead. I think the first album I bought was "Crimson and Clover" by Tommy James and the Shondells. When I was in sixth grade, I changed from playing cello to ...Read More


Website Video for Day Care Center

Oct 18, 2015

Teacher and infant at Wonder Years Learning Center. It's fun working with children. They're so friendly and curious. Last year I worked with the Seacoast Community School on a TV commercial to introduce the community to their new name (see the video here), so I had a lot of experience working with children on camera from infants up through elementary school age. At these ages the kids are very willing to help and listen - they're very open to a ...Read More


Meet Meagan Fuller, Miss Massachusetts 2015

Aug 19, 2015

Behind the scenes with Meagan Fuller, Miss Massachusetts 2015. I really wasn't expecting it. In early July I got a call from my friend, Jennifer Foxwell from Jennifer Design, with whom I've collaborated on a number of projects together. Last year she was designing a website for the newly crowned Miss Massachusetts, Lauren Kuhn, and needed some video for the website. I was soon introduced to Lauren and I produced this video for her. The pinnacle, though, was being at ...Read More


Patriots Training Camp 2015

Jul 31, 2015

Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patiots, at training camp 2015. My annual trek to the New England Patriots' training camp was another spectacular day. 80 degrees and beautiful sunshine. Of course, that's by design. I always look ahead at the weather and pick the day that will have these conditions. The main reason is to make sure I have lots of light so I can shoot at a very high shutter speed to stop the action. Nothing wrecks ...Read More

First Time Using Kessler Crane’s Second Shooter

Apr 23, 2015

The Kessler Crane Second Shooter and CineSlider at the Bellman's Jewelers video shoot. A slider is a wonderful piece of equipment that adds significant production value to a video project. I've been using them for years, but the one frustration I've had with them is that, for me, the shot is limited by how well I can push or pull (that is, slide) the camera manually along the slider. For slow movements, it can be quite challenging to maintain the ...Read More

Pedro Stikes out 12 en Route to 3-1 victory over Expos

Jan 7, 2015

It was the summer of 2000. I had the good fortune to not only get access to Red Sox tickets, but I got to see Pedro Martinez pitch several times. Every time he took the mound that year it felt like he could have pitched a no-hitter. He ended the season with an ERA of 1.74. In hindsight, that accomplishment was even more remarkable given that he was pitching in the height of the steroid era. Pedro is far from ...Read More


Mixed Martial Arts Equipment Inventor – Sonny Charles

Dec 20, 2014

Sonny Charles is a former U.S. Marine Corps Battalion Intelligence Scout / Hand-to-Hand combat instructor who opened his own workout gym in 1997.

The result: Ukeman (pronounced "uke-e-man). Sonny is looking to license the Ukeman design to a manufacturing partner, and needed a couple of videos to help ...Read More

Cinemagic and the Big Night out

May 8, 2014

Cinemagic Movie Theater - The Big Night Out. Completed a really nice story for Cinemagic's new theater in Portsmouth, NH. This shoot was a bit more complicated than most. It required two locations and a night shoot. We also hired two professional actors to play the leads, as well as for the voice over. The opening scene was shot in Cinemagic's corporate office (Zyacorp is the parent company located in Bedford, NH). Afterwards we all hopped in the car and ...Read More

Jon Anderson, Lead Singer of Yes, at Tupelo Music Hall April 23, 2014

Apr 24, 2014

Jon Anderson at Tupelo Music Hall April 23, 2014. The very first rock concert I attended was to see the band Yes. They were playing at Roosevelt Field in Jersey City, New Jersey. The date was July 25th, 1975. My first trial as a concert photographer was almost a complete failure. I didn't understand how the camera's automatic metering system would be fooled so badly with the large darkness that filled the viewfinder. All my exposures were horribly over exposed. ...Read More

Jan 23, 2014

New York Times best selling author Scott Sigler came to Boston to support the release of his latest book, Pandemic. Last time Scott came into town was in 2010 after Ancestor was published.

A Versatile GoPro Bicycle Mount

Nov 10, 2013

GoPro Bicycle Mount. After being hired to produce a film for Ciclismo Classico, a bicycle tour company specializing in hosting trips throughout Italy, the first thing I set out to do was figure out the best way to attach a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition camera to the bike to get the most interesting footage. After investigating a lot of solutions, I concluded that I wanted to position the camera off the bike. This ruled out all body mounts and most ...Read More

The scene was in a soccer stadium and they needed to fill the stands with a sold out crowd. Since ...Read More


Sony FS-700 Slow Motion and Low Light Performance

Jul 14, 2013

Last summer I upgraded my camcorder to the Sony NEX FS-700. One of the main reasons was to take advantage of its ability to interchange lenses. With this camcorder, I can use the same high-end lenses I have for Nikon DLSR. The camera also sports a large sensor - a 4K Exmor Super 35 CMOS sensor with 11.6 million pixels - allowing the camera to achieve very low depth-of-field shots and a very high frame rate. The low depth-of-field is ...Read More

Automobile Commercials Galore!

May 16, 2013

I am very happy to announce the completion of my first car dealership commercials! Comcast Spotlight was kind enough to introduce me to Rochester Toyota to see if I could bring a fresh approach to their spots.

Were Lee Harvey Oswald’s Photos Faked?

Nov 22, 2012

Lee Harvey Oswald backyard photographs. I've always been fascinated with the myriad of discussions surrounding the Kennedy Assassination. But in May of 1979, I never imagined how close I would come to some of the most famous photographs in history. I was finishing my freshman year at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in the Photographic Science and Instrumentation program, when many of us decided to attend the SPSE annual conference being held in Boston, MA that year. I was ...Read More

Time Lapse at the Made In NH Expo

Jun 9, 2012

In April we were not only an exhibitor at the Made In NH Expo, but were also hired to make a video summarizing the event. For three days I donned my Steadicam and walked the floor investigating all the vendors and watching the attendees try product. To help break up the piece, I thought it would be a great venue to try some time lapse photography that I learned a few weeks ago from Ron Risman at Rule Camera in ...Read More


In Memory of Junior Seau

May 5, 2012

Junior Seau as a New England Patriot against the New York Jets, 2007 After listening to all the sports-talk radio about Junior Seau's suicide, it dawned on me that I might have some photos of Junior when I had the opportunity to see the Patriots play the Jets during the 2007 season. Indeed, after going back into the archives, I had several, so I thought I would share them here. I was invited by PC Connection to watch the game ...Read More

Mar 1, 2012

Published Photo 'Dew on Moss' in Merrimack Valley Magazine Mar/Apr 2012. I have always loved the photography in the Merrimack Valley magazine.

Remembering Steve Jobs

Oct 6, 2011

Steve Jobs on the cover of the debut issue of MacWorld in 1984. The passing of Steve Jobs gave me time to reflect on how much he impacted my life.

Up until then, figuring out how to use an application on a computer meant spending hours pouring through the ...Read More

I didn't think much ...Read More


The Statue of Liberty Never Looked Finer

Nov 29, 2010

The Statue of Liberty. My wife and I visited the Statue of Liberty over the Thanksgiving holiday. Even though I grew up just outside New York city, I had never visited Liberty Island before.

Exploding Nikon Lens

Jul 15, 2010

I never expected to see this. While hiking the Hi-Cannon Trail up to the top of Cannon Mountain in the Franconia Notch region of the New Hampshire White Mountains, my camera swung around and caught a thick, dead branch right in the middle of my Nikkor 18-200mm zoom lens. I've hiked with my Nikon camera equipment all my life, from the Grand Canyon to Glacier National Park to the Czech Republic, and I've occassionally knocked the equipment around - but ...Read More

May 17, 2010

Ronnie James Dio of Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow at the Beacon Theater November 1975. I just learned from a close friend that Ronnie James Dio died yesterday (Ronnie James Dio Dies). How sad.

iPad Underwhelming – First Impressions

Apr 6, 2010

Tuesday, April 6, 2010 I stopped by the Apple store yesterday to check out the new Apple iPad.

Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden June 11, 1977

Jan 3, 2010

I was a Junior in High School when Led Zeppelin booked Madison Square Garden in New York City for a week of concerts in June of 1977. We were able to score tickets because they were sold by mail order - the promoter's brilliant plan to circumvent the scalpers from getting the best seats. The downside, of course, was that we had no control where our seats would be. To our great surprise we received seats in the first tier ...Read More
