Lauren – Senior Session

Going back to a little before Christmas, here for the final shoot in Lauren’s senior package. We swapped things up and moved into the studio for this set – it was getting too cold for outdoor shooting anyway, and we wanted that classic white background for the final few looks we had in mind.

Lauren rocked each outfit she brought and I couldn’t imagine things getting any better, but then she finished the set in her black gown, which was nothing short of stunning. I always like ending on a strong note, and it doesn’t get any better than this!


Gianna – Christmas Photos

Christmas photos of Gianna taken at Fell Charter School on the evening of 02 December 2011.

This is Gianna, one of the cutest gals I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and certainly a far cry younger than the high school seniors I’ve been working with!  Her mom wanted photos for the annual Christmas card, so we got together at the local playground and did the a series outdoors.  It took little Gianna a few minutes to warm up to the camera, but after that, she was magic.


Alli – Portfolio Session

Alexandra Susko models in Regina Hall at Marywood University on the evening of 12 November 2011.

This is my great friend Alli, who stepped in front of the camera a couple of weeks back for a glamour portrait session.  Alli is giving some real thought to modeling, it not as a career than at least as a side-project.  The first thing that any aspiring model needs is, of course, a portfolio – so we set out to start building one.


Father Robert

Father Robert of St Michael's Church, Dunmore, PA - portrait to be used in the centennial commemorative book.  Photographed 12 August 2011.

Had the recent honor of working with Father Robert of St Michael’s Byzantine Church, who needed a formal-style portrait for publication.  Ever the gentleman, Fr Robert didn’t flinch as we converted his living room into a studio and put him in front of the lens for a quick shoot.

St Michael’s is fast approaching its centennial anniversary, which will arrive this November.  For the past year, my good friend and fellow photographer Paul Sevensky has been chronicling the events leading up to the centennial; the church is preparing a commemorative book, which will feature both these photos and others from the church’s past.

And naturally no commemorative book would be complete without a studio portrait of the presiding priest.

More to come…



Had the great fortune to work with local hip-hop artist Para-Dice a few weeks back.  She found me through a mutual friend and told me she was looking for advertising/promotional shots and had a few ideas.  We tossed them around and settled on a weekend shoot on Marywood University’s campus, where we spent most of an afternoon shooting in an absolutely awesome setting (and also managed to send a campus tour slightly off-track).

This was my first foray into shooting for the music industry, which was pretty exciting.  Hip-hop tends to be edgy, so our photos had to match, although we decided to mix the edge with some glamour, staying a bit lower key for this first shoot.  It’s an interesting look that really worked for Para-Dice.
