Getting some more ink!

Just an FYI that there will be a feature article about me coming out tomorrow in The Villager Newspapers! Hope I don't sound like a complete knucklehead, but it's hard when you actually ARE a knucklehead!

A couple of more wins!

Well, it seems that the hits just keep on coming!! I finally entered some prints for the first time in the CT Professional Photographers Association print competition last night and placed 1st in the Candid category for "With you every step" (which is the same image below that won the Eventpix/WPPI competition last week) and actually placed Best in Show for my image titled "Beautiful Day" !! My colleague and friend Charleen Larkin of Charleen's Portrait Studio also placed 2nd in the Portrait category for her print titled "Fierce!". Way to go Charleen!! We are making some noise in the Quiet Corner!

Freitas/Diaz fight

Just a little FYI that I am now getting the pleasure of shooting boxing matches for Northeast Boxing News and will be covering the Freitas/Diaz fight next weekend that will be televised on HBO. Can you ask for a better seat or what? Ringside! I will try to keep my Rocky Balboa impressions at bay. "He'll knock ya into tomorrow Rock!....this guy's a wreckin' machine!". Thanks to Sandy & Ron for giving me the opportunity..thanks guys! And, remember...Mickey loves ya.

Planet Earth on The Discovery Channel has anyone been checking out the Planet Earth series on The Discovery Channel? Talk about incredible photography!!! These guys will basically do anything to get the shot. As a photographer, I just marvel at the viewpoints and unique footage these guys are able to get. Last night's chapter was related to fresh water, and there was some footage of monkeys that swam under water...incredible. This is really a wonderful project and I really advise everyone to watch. It will make you look at our planet and its' life forms ina whole different and beautiful way. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Ok all, this little ole CT wedding photographer is simply walking on air here since I just heard that I was the Grand Prize winner of The Best of Weddings Contest through Eventpix/WPPI out in Vegas!!! I win a new Fuji S5 Pro, a full set of Kevin Kubota's actions, some framed prints of my images, and the winning image posted on the Eventpix site for 6 months. (I was really hoping for a leg lamp). This really is a major accomplishment considering the talent/images entered in the contest and I am speechless. All I can say is WOW!
