I was asked by the marketing folks at Chef’s restaurant to come in for a day and tackle some product photography of food at Chef’s restaurant and take some portraits of the family. This was the first time where my brain and stomach were in sync for a photography job so I jumped at the [...]
Garrett and Kyla approached me about documenting their wedding when they returned home from a long stint in South Korea teaching English. Garrett and I worked together a lifetime ago at the Apple Store in Buffalo and kept in touch periodically whilst he was teaching english in South Korea. Kyla and Garrett were a hoot [...]
I’ve known Mr. Reeves since I was born. My parents moved into our house on Franklin street the week after I was born in June, 1985. Mr. Reeves and his wife of sixty seven years, Mrs. June Reeves were/are like a second set of grandparents too me. I have fond vivid memories of helping the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
One of my clients, Animal Outfitters, recently had an agility course set up on the streets of Elmwood Village. Naturally my wife and I took our Schnoodle Griffin to the course for him to let off a little steam. Here’s what happened with him and some of the other dogs:
It’s a working title. Yesterday FC Buffalo took the home field at Robert E. Rich All High Stadium in Buffalo in a rematch from last weeks contest against AFC Cleveland. FC Buffalo were at full strength yesterday, unlike the contest last week wherein the Blitzers were down five starters. A healthy crowd turned out at [...]
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 [...]
I carpooled with some of the awesome members of The Situation Room to Cleveland last friday to watch our FC Buffalo Blitzers take on AFC Cleveland. TSR and I were looking forward to seeing FC Buffalo notch up their first regulation win of the 2012 season – having tied with Detroit City FC the week [...]
For me, Iroquois Wildlife Refuge is like a church. It’s the place I go to find solace, become one with my thoughts, and try to hone specific photography skills. Iroquoise is a place where I can just escape from everything and be completely okay with it. Most of Iroquois is a deadzone or Edge, so [...]
I’m falling increasingly in love with portrait sessions. A lot can be said about a great portrait session. If the photographer and the subject are on the same page the chances are the portrait session will end with some really great results. I recently had an experience like that with local comedian Anthony Rizzo.
Yesterday the Buffalo State College Fashion Technology department presented Runway 5.0 – their annual runway fashion show event, this year in its fifth installment. I had the opportunity to be backstage at Runway 5.0 shooting in, what I call, my studio in a box – a roll of white seemless vinyl and a three light [...]
As we wrap the weeklong coverage of FC Buffalo’s delightfully friendly relationship the Erie Admirals we end it with this image. I’ve posted a lot of photos from the FC Buffalo archive of players jumping for a header. I’ve probably posted too many, but I find the action element in them interesting. As we’ve seen [...]
In December I sent out a tweet asking if anyone wanted to do a portrait session together as a way for someone to get a new portrait, for me to test some new equipment, and get to know one of my followers. A couple days went by without a response so I figured I would [...]
The folks in The Situation Room have it easy during an FC Buffalo game at All High Stadium. They get to sit in the shade and enjoy the breeze blowing up the bleachers while I’m roasting my rear end on the field. You can always tell when I’m shooting sideline at an FC Buffalo game [...]
Nicole Schuman is a content curator and social media guru in Buffalo, NY. I first met her through her twitter handle, @buffalogal and met her in person at Social Media Day last June. She confused me with local twitter icon The Amherst Bear, which for some reason happens all the time to me. At any [...]
As we continue to explore the rivalry between FC Buffalo and the Erie Admirals it’s time to tell the story on how one of FC Buffalo’s owners was ejected from the game. FC Buffalo’s ownership is really interesting and inspiring group of guys who not only love bringing soccer to Buffalo but also have an undeniable [...]
We continue to explore the very loving relationship between FC Buffalo and the Erie Admirals from the 2011 NPSL season. If you’ve been following the posts for the last couple day’s you’ll know the reoccuring theme that these two teams and fans generally don’t like each other. If you’re just reading about this rivalry you [...]
There’s nothing like a good collision at an FC Buffalo match to get you pumped for the season opening. We explore the Erie Admirals vs. FC Buffalo archives again to bring you this image of an Erie Admiral “accidentally” colliding into one of our very own FC Buffalo Blitzers. Yes there’s nothing like a knee [...]
I think all fans in The Situation Room will regard the Erie Admirals as FC Buffalo’s biggest rival in the NPSL Matches between FC Buffalo and Erie are always physical, competitive and entertaining and usually tainted with poor officiating. As I mentioned in a couple of my Lord Bedlington Cup posts, being on the sideline during FC [...]
As I wrap up this series of FC Buffalo vs. Bedlington Terriers FC images (for now) I have to leave you with this image. One of the things I quickly realized whilst shooting for FC Buffalo is how fast the action is, and how ridiculous some of the moments you capture are.
In December I was asked by a client to spend some time at WNYBAC, the Western New York Book Arts Center. As someone who enjoys the craft of typography and graphic print design I embarrassingly have to admit that I hadn’t been to WNYBAC before, which is why I jumped at the chance to shoot the assignment.
Today we visit the Lord Bedlington Cup again, because it was that good of a match. I mentioned yesterday how physical of a game the matchup between FC Buffalo and the Bedlington Terriers FC was, and nothing exemplifies the tense atmosphere than this image. This incident was one of two near brawls that erupted in this [...]
I’ve been on the sideline photographing FC Buffalo since the inaugural season in 2010 and as we get closer to opening day on May 13th, I’ve decided to open up the archive and share some of the images I’ve made in the last two years.
