Blue, Blue, Blue

Well, I just got back from the CT Photographers Association's annual convention and discovered (to my extreme surprise & delight) that 3 of my prints were awarded Blue ribbons and another a Red Ribbon in the print competition!! The Blue's were a total surprise to me because I basically entered all the prints that didn't score well during the quarterly competition. I only entered them because I didn't have anything else ready! Thank you to Julia Gerace for talking me into entering...thanks Jules!!! My good friend and collegue Charleen Larkin "one upped" me and took home 4 Blue Ribbbons!! Way to go Charleen! Anyways, here are a few of mine...titles: "Flying High Again", "Towering Inferno" and "Where Art Thou?".

Kerri & Paul

Here are a couple from Kerri & Paul's wedding in October. It was an intimate ceremony with only a few family & friends. I call this first one "Marilyn Moment". It was incredibly windy that you can see! Congrats again guys!

Stephanie & Stephen

Man am I am on a blog roll today! Get it? Blog roll? Man I am too much! Here a few little diddies from Stephanie & Stephen's wedding on January 5th. Thanks for braving the cold temps guys! Ceremony at Providence College and reception at The Biltmore Hotel.

Gina & Chris images

I was just going through Gina & Chris' gallery to find a few images and found some that I thought I'd share. The wedding was June 29th at The Waterview in Monroe, CT. Hope you enjoy...

CPPA Trade show this weekend

FYI for anyone interested. The CPPA convention is this weekend at The Crowne Plaza in Cromwell...and there is a free trade show on Sunday. It's nothing huge but feel free to stop by and check out all the latest whatchamacallits and doohickies if you're in the area!

Latest Studio Pics is FINALLY ready for me! Get the keys on Wednesday which is good since I will be at seminars today through Tuesday. The only thing left is lighting fixtures.
Here are a couple of images of the workroom and the lobby. (The camera room, my office and projection room aren't much different.)
Can't wait to bring in some furniture and put up some prints. Will hopefully transform the place. Will post more as it progresses!
