The Groves at Lincoln – Massachusetts
Its not often you get to have the owner of the architectural firm accompany you as the “assistant” on a photoshoot. This project turned out to be a great shoot with weather that kept giving us surprise after surprise at every turn. Cloud cover is always best when a little drama is present. I probably could of pulled even more range out of these clouds but at some point it starts looking a bit unrealistic.
Moving so quickly through the interiors forced me to work with available lighting and finishing in post production. Not ideal but with the owner pushing you got to do what you got to do.
This particular interior of one of the dining rooms was purposely overdone (for my tastes) to exaggerate the connections the dining spaces have with the outdoors.
Outdoor Dining – Seating
In the end, we pulled off about 48+ shots in 6-7 hours. After reviewing all the shots I think we will end up with 20 keepers. I spent approximately 10 hours processing a bunch for a meeting and will probably spend another 5 to get them to a point that I am comfortable.

This was a quick photoshoot for a client looking to update some shots for his website. Since I only had a short amount of time to actually shoot so I relied on post processing to removing several items that I couldn’t move out of the shot and cleaned up the gravel drive including weeds and bare spots.
Canterbury Woods – Buffalo, New York
This was a quick turn-around shoot from Boston to Buffalo and back again, all in a day.
I was asked to capture a few views of a clubhouse and cottages built a few years back by EGA Architects
. Flying with photo equipment is always an adventure and this time was no exception. With all the stories of TSA not allowing tripods as a carry-ons I decided to check it. So, in order to protect the tripod, and my arm, I picked a bag that was light and small. The tripod I used has nuts that you can loosen which allows you to remove the lower legs making it shorter so it would fit in the bag I decided to use. When I retrieved the bag in Buffalo all was fine except the bolts that hold the legswere missing. Yes, completely missing. I thought initially that they must have fallen out in the bag but No. Then I thought that TSA must have searched it and put the loose bolts in a zipped portion of the bag. Nope. I check at home were I removed the legs and no bolts. All I can think is TSA removed the tripod peices out of the bag and sent them trough the scanner separate and the bolts fell out in the scanner? Thankfully, I was still able to use the tripod by force fitting the legs into place. The adventures of travel!
