NBC News Uses Buffalo Weather Footage

It being the holidays and all I had a moment to actually watch the news last night. Normally I'm in bed for the national news at six thirty because I work the overnight shift. So it goes. I was pleasently surprised that NBC News Channel - the VOD hub for all NBC affiliates used some of my footage of Buffalo weather for a package Christmas Eve

Portrait Session: William Reeve

I've known Mr. Reeve since I was born. My parents moved into our house on Franklin street the week after June, 1985. Mr. Reeve and his wife of sixty seven years, Mrs. June Reeve were/are like a second set of grandparents to me. I have fond and vivid memories of helping the Reeves in their lush garden as a five  year old. By helping, I mainly just tossed dirt from point A to point B and that was the extent of my contribution in the rows of tomatoes and cucumbers. Continue reading "Portrait Session: William Reeve"

FC Buffalo vs. Binghamton FC – Photo post

Similar to the post office, FC Buffalo will play whether it's rain or shine or even in the snow. The weekend weather here in Buffalo ruined a lot of events. Taste of Country on Friday was in disarray with rain and high winds causing headliner Eric Church to bail out at the last minute. The annual Gus Maker tournament was held downtown but the final day was postponed due to impending rains. The Greek festival was held all weekend too, I'd have to imagine at some point it was rained out, but those Greeks know how to have a good time so I'll assume they partied regardless of what the skies were doing.

Portrait Session: FC Buffalo Merch & Owners

Being the staff photographer for FC Buffalo has me running up and down the field quite often - which is always fun for a guy like me. However from time to time I get to work on a little project for the organization that we all get to have fun with. After the teams home opener against Detroit City FC, I was asked to do a quick portrait session with some if the owners and fans from The Situation Room. I have a great working relationship with FC Buffalo, every idea I have that isn't terrible the owners pretty much run with - except the #HateErie urinal cakes....they found that in poor taste.

Sunrise over Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge

 Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite shooting locations in WNY. I could go there everyday for a week and find a new location or subject to shoot. If you're not familiar with Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge it is located in Shelby, NY - about thirty minutes from Buffalo and 10 minutes from the exit 48a on the New York State Thruway. The wetlands of Iroquois are fed from Oak Orchard Creek which is fed by Lake Ontario. This massive and nearly 11,000 acre reserve is home to so much wildlife that it would be ignorant for me to try and put a number on it.
