Sometimes I wonder about the story that goes along with things like this bottle. Someone had to buy it, probably drank the contents, then what? How did it end up on the ground? How many people walked by it? How long did it rest until I picked it up? Did it know it was going to be photographed in this dirty mangled state and look cool and unique?

Here's a sunrise shot that wasn't chosen for the cover of the Boston Globe Magazine's article on bike sharing. They chose another shot that I'll post when I get a PDF of the cover. Thanks Matt and Henry for getting up way to early on a Sunday to catch the sunrise.
Shot with the Canon 5d Mark II, 50mm lens, and the hensel porty lit him up.

This super nice woman came by a few weeks ago for a portrait. A few nights ago she called asking for a print of this shot and sent an email full of compliments. Thank you Arian for coming by, it was a pleasure to photograph you.

I've been working on a series of 80's ish tech objects and they have been coming out really cool. Wait til you see some of the others! They'll bring back some memories, I promise.

I created this portrait yesterday of Boston's Mayor Tom Menino. I added some portraits to go along with the cover story I was shooting about Bike Sharing in Boston. I set out to photograph the city's bike czar Nicole Freedman when the the mayor became part of it too. Who knows if the magazine will use the portraits or not. But something cool came out of going a little above and beyond. Thanks to Henry for helping out, Christian for the lens loan, and Dot Joyce at the mayor's office for making it happen.
Shot with the Canon 5d Mark II, 85mm 1.2L lens, profoto 7b and hensel porty lights.

I did some shots with doctors yesterday and around the office to promote a new cancer treatment center at the Addison Gilbert Hospitol in Gloucester, MA. Thanks Jon K. for helping out and Jeff Tautenhan for being happy with the work.

Yesterday after I bought my sandwich from the corner store I asked for a plastic bag. As I walked back to the studio I picked up every clear plastic bottle from the side of the street next to the curb. I did this all the way back. I picked up 36 bottles. Then I photographed them individually and in this group shot. Damn people please recycle!
Shot with the Mamiya and P45+back, 80mm lens, and one speedo head

I've wanted to shoot earrings like this for a while now. I photographed Johnetta and her boyfriend Lionel for a new portrait series that I've been working on. She just happen to show up with the perfect earrings. Awesome! I shot this with the Mamiya 645AF, Phase One P45+ back, 80mm lens with a close up ring. It's lit with a mixture of profoto and speedotron strobes.

Here's a few extra portraits I did on Walden Pond back in January while doing a cover shoot for the Boston Globe Magazine. Shot with Canon 1ds Mark II, 17-35 f2.8 lens and Profoto 7b lighting. It was about 7°F that day. Thanks Josue for the assignment and thanks Henry for helping lug all the gear around.

I pulled from the vault again. This time with an old shot of Abe Teter. Snowboarder ran this image in a story on Super Park. Abe was the first of the Teter clan to make it big time in snowboarding. You don't hear much about him now, though I did here Sal call Elijah, Abe during the X Games finals this year. Another super nice guy with an awesome style. Nobody can tweak huge airs like Abe. I shot this with the Canon EOS 3, 70mm lens loaded with Kodak 3200 rated at 3200. It was lit by the the snow falling sky outside of this huge window at Abe's house in Mammoth, CA.

Another one from the vault. I took this shot of Ross Powers after he won the Olympic Gold. We set up a seamless in his condo near Stratton, VT. He had the olympic torch (that he ran with in VT) on the kitchen table with a bunch of papers and crap all around, it was really funny. Ross is a super nice guy and I'm glad I was able to photograph him a bunch.
Shot this with a hassleblad and a 150mm lens. Fuji provia 100 cross processed. Lit with a softbox on the profoto.

A shot from the vault. This is a cross processed image from back in the snowboarding days. Shot with fuji provia 100f in a Mamiya 645 with a 120mm macro lens. Lit with a small softbox on the hensel pack. We shot this in a condo at Killington, VT. The Burton "B Team" was staying there and I slept on the floor under the kitchen table that night. Good times!
