Stake in.....

          This was a two part photo shoot for the American University. We were lucky enough to have full access to the new Barnes Museum highlighting the senior director of external affairs, Mark Mills. Drexel University graphic design intern, Mio Kobayashi worked on the shoot with us.
"It was a great experience to go on a real photo shoot. It was my first time to learn the whole work flow of a professional photo shoot. I was in charge of carrying the equipment, setting up the lights and many other tasks to support my boss. I usually work a little slow, but through this, I learned how to work at a fast pace and perfectly to get the job done. "

Adventures at the Old Coal Pier.

I went out with fellow photography friends for John Welsh's photography class. We were lucky enough to stumble onto an adventurous group of paintball players in a graffiti-covered, paintball-player's paradise.

This old pier was used for coal transportation in the past. The Delaware River Port Authority has been renovating the riverfront with the Rails to Trails program so we were glad to see this pier-turned-battlefield still standing.

The paint-stained architecture really struck me, as did the players themselves.

The Grover C. and Irma S. Wright Story

We are proud to present our short, non-profit documentary for the Lutheran Theological Seminary. The story of the late Grover Wright, his wife Irma, and the scholarship fund they've set up for young Lutherans looking to go to the seminary is inspiring and heartfelt. 

Please enjoy the film in the video section of our site, or on our vimeo page!

The Challenge creates the Magic

The Challenge that keeps me coming to work.  The magic is the reward.  K for Karsh tells it like it is.

Within every man and woman a secret is hidden, and as a photographer it is my task to reveal it if I can. The revelation, if it comes at all, will come in a small fraction of a second with an unconscious gesture, a gleam of the eye, a brief lifting of the mask that all humans wear to conceal their innermost selves from the world.”
–Yousuf Karsh
