Andrew Thompson

This year has been such an exciting photography year for me. It’s been nonstop-busy, which is definitely how I like it to be. I’m looking forward to the projects this summer will bring.

I’m pretty much booked solid for the month of June, which includes a trip to Jamaica from the 28th to the 2nd to photograph a destination wedding (complete with a trash the dress session!). I promise to post lots of pictures while I’m there.

As mentioned in my last post, I recently did a shoot with Andrew Thompson in my favorite Brooklyn bar, Boat. I’ve had this idea in my head for a shoot for some time and I knew Andrew would be up for it! Enjoy…

My favorite shot of the day:

Boat Bar, Brooklyn – Guinness and Otter!

Yesterday afternoon I headed over to Boat to do a photoshoot with Andrew Thompson.

Too bad for Andrew, he was upstaged by Guiness and Otter. Guiness and Otter are, hands down, the two most lovable dogs I have ever met (and I’m a cat person). They sat at the bar (literally) all night, drank a few mini-beers and stole the hearts of dozens. Enjoy!

iPhone Adventures – CameraBag

My iPhone has been running really slowly lately (much like the other mac device in my life). It didn’t take long to figure out that the 600+ photos I had stored on there could be causing it to melt down. I never thought I’d use a camera phone so much, but having CameraBag on it makes it even more fun to play with.

So yesterday I sat down and removed all the non-portfolio photos from it and that’s what inspired me to post this montage of iPhotos. I try to ‘tweet’ photos and post to my facebook when I remember. I ‘d like to think I’ll have the time to post some more, but enjoy these for now (a snippet of my little life):


Beacon, NY Adventure

Yesterday P and I took Metro North to Beacon for a mini adventure. Though most of the time was spent in a cozy cafe processing Bat Mitzvah photos, we also spent some time walking around taking photos and checking out the neighborhood.

When I’m outside of the city I tend to get really excited about nature! I didn’t bring my 5D, but I did bring the Lumix and I’m glad I did. I’m always telling my students “read your manual…” and “know your camera…” but I admit I haven’t taken the time to really get to know my Lumix!

It was fun playing with the camera’s custom functions. I set two separate custom functions illustrated in the following images. All ‘effects’ were done in-camera. Enjoy!

When this little guy woke up yesterday, I bet he never thought he’d be the subject of a photoshoot!
Oddly, I couldn’t remember the last time I saw a ‘wishie’…
Before catching the train back, we had a drink at Chill – a wine bar on Main Street.

New York City Bat Mitzvah – Adelaide

Thank you rain for holding out (so far)! I’m on a bit of a lunch break from my day with Adelaide, her family and friends, so I figured I’d post a photo taken at the temple as a ‘holding page’ for the full event.

Stay tuned…
