Breakfast of Wheatens

 I was inspired by the Blade's Pet Idol contest but was too late to enter. This is my sister-in-law's Wheaten Terrier who has retired from the show circuit.  I could not resist the obvious tie-in.

The Runner


How do you photograph a runner?  Ricky currently holds the school record in the 2 mile run at Central Catholic High School.  Running is his life.  Talking to his mother revealed that all of his running shoes used in high school were available!  So we created a wall of shoes and surrounded Ricky with banners and trophies from his races.   


Photo stylizing

I took this image of  one of my seniors, Aaron Birney during the hockey season.  I played around with the image and created this stylized look.  Let me know what you think.

Do Toledo Brochure Cover!!!

I was pleased to have one of my images chosen for the cover of the Do Toledo 2010 brochure this year!  The image was taken around dusk last summer at a downtown event.  Dusk is the "Golden Hour" for great light.  I saw beautiful light coming down Madison Ave. from my vantage point at the Docks and captured a terrific image of the festivities on the river. 

Sandy Scott

Sandy Scott   

I just got back from the funeral of a dear friend of mine, Sandy Scott.  Sandy left us way too soon.  She was one of the most positive and couragous people that I have ever known.  You can read Sandy's obituary at  Sandy left three beautiful children who attend elementary, Jr high, and high schools in Sylvania, Ohio.  I would encourage everyone to make a contribution on Sandy's behalf to Sandra V. Scott's Children's Scholarship Fund at any Fifth/Third bank.
