I got a call to shoot the FCIAC State Final game at “The Whale” in New Haven. No pressure!  I never photographed a hockey game before so I was like, yes!!! I will do it!! I was so excited to shoot, but the longest lens I had was a 24-105mm. One of my closest friends has a 70-200mm f.2 so I called him up and he said of course I can use it. Thank god for nice friends.For years he had this lens, and I always wanted to try it out. Now  was my opportunity. After getting a sense of where to position myself ( thanks youtube and the photographers from sports illustrated ) and a few pointers, I was ready to fire!  I hope you enjoy these hockey images, I really enjoyed the game and the fast action. It is a beautiful game to photograph and there is always excitement on the ice. Not bad for a first time right?

I was asked to shoot images for Seamens Moving with a couple of Bridgeport Sound Tigers players. This shoot will be on billboards in New York and Connecticut The shoot was one of the coldest days I could remember. Even though there was no snow on the ground it felt like it was -50.The wind was killer and after 20 minutes I think I had frost bite. The players Kevin Czuczman and Loic Leduc were fine, I think they were used to the cold.

Reyes is my neighbor from down the street. She called me and asked whether I did passport pictures. I don’t know if you have seen my website, but I do just about everything with a camera. Product,  people and places. I even fly a drone for some cool aerial stuff. Reyes wanted an image that would be better than what local passport places took. I said no problem. I usually get the Canadian, British and Dutch Passports because the local shops can not print the specific sizes needed by each government. The nice thing about Reyes, is that she remembered my mom and how they used to walk their dogs together and talk. It was a very nice surprise to have her stop by and catch up.
