Crocker Park Concerts – Marblehead Festival of Arts

Last night, I flew my drone across Marblehead harbor for this aerial view of the Crocker Park concerts.  I had gone out to shoot the sunset and was torn between heading the Crocker Park to capture it over the Neck while listening to some good music or shooting from the Neck and using the drone to capture the view at Crocker Park. I ended up deciding on the latter and was thankful for the flexibility that the drone offers. I was quite literally shooting sunsets with the real camera while taking photos of the Crocker Park concerts all while taking [...]

Marblehead Artisans Marketplace is this Weekend

I'm pleased to announce that I will be participating in the Marblehead Artisans Marketplace this weekend for the second time in as many years.  The Artisans Marketplace is located on the grounds of Abbot Hall and will take place on Saturday and Sunday during the Marblehead Festival of Arts. As I did last year, I will have a collection of prints on display as well as signed books and my 16-month 2017 calendar available for purchase.  If you have wondered what my canvas or metal prints look like or just need to get a sense of whether a 16x20 or [...]

Peoples Choice Award – Marblehead Festival of Arts 2015

I am honored to receive the Peoples Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of Arts 2015 for the second consecutive year!  This year's image Hooper to the Harbor was an overwhelming favorite when I first shared it and that sentiment seemed to be shared by the thousands attendees of this years 50th Marblehead Festival of Arts. A bit of background on the image: During the Summer of 2014, scaffolding went up around St. Michaels’ Church as a new steeple was raised on the building.  I managed to make my way to the top of the scaffolding one August evening with the [...]

Peoples Choice Award – Marblehead Festival of Arts 2014

I was honored to receive the Peoples Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of Arts 2014 for this image - Storm Chasing at Chandler Hovey Park. Here is a bit of background on the image: I was down at the Pleon Yacht Club shooting across the harbor and hoping to capture the great cumulus clouds over the harbor when the sky turned ominously dark.  I quickly left and headed to Chandler Hovey Park where I switched to an ultra wide angle lens and stood on a bench to capture the 7 images that would make up this final panoramic shot. [...]

Hooper to the Harbor

Marblehead Festival of Arts 2015 People's Choice Award Winner During the Summer of 2014, scaffolding went up around St. Michaels' Church as a new steeple was raised on the building.  I managed to make my way to the top of the scaffolding one August evening with the help of a friend and found this incredible view before me. I was struck by the row of houses along Hooper Street near Bank Square and the proximity of Marblehead Harbor (still filled with boats) as well the nearness of Marblehead Neck and the causeway. This view only existed for the briefest moments in [...]

Old Town House Open for the Festival of Arts

It's the middle of March and far too cold outside so I went into the archive and pulled out this image from last Summer.  It's rare to have the Old Town House open its doors...let alone both of them.  But that was the case on a very warm late June day during the 2012 Marblehead Festival of Arts.  I had been at Old Town House to look at the photography works on this particular day when I noted the back doors were open.  I walked out the back and down the stairs and was happy that my camera was strapped [...]

Best of Show – Marblehead Festival of Arts 2012

I am thrilled, honored and humbled that the jurors of the 2012 Marblehead Festival of Arts have chosen 'A Walk in the Fog' as Best of Show in photography.  This is an incredible and unexpected honor.  As I sought to show in the two posts from this week, we only moved to Marblehead in May 2008 and I started this project in August 2010.  Here I am a few short years later receiving this incredible honor for one of my images. I will be receiving the award on Friday night outside Abbot and will be sitting at Old Town House [...]
