Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO)

Last week I saw one of the most amazing concerts of my life, The Trans Siberian Orchestra. They performed in Allentown at the PPL Center. They have restrictions on camera equipment (based on size), but, because I brought my Olympus Pen-F, I was able to shoot the concert. All images were shot handheld with the M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f4.0-5.6 II.

The Jungle’s of Panama & Costa Rica – Fauna (post 1 of 3)

A few months ago I traveled to the jungles of Panama & Costa Rica with the primary intent of trying out the new Olympus M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 PRO lens (equivalent to 600mm full frame). I decided to break the trip into 3 posts. The first one being Fauna, the second one will be Flora and the last one will be Patterns. 80% of the images were shot with the OM-D E-M1 and the remaining ones were shot with the OM-D E-M5 MkII. The ISO’s averaged between 1,000 and 5,000. I was not disappointed with the results, however, I’ll let you be the judge.

Missouri State Penitentiary

I recently had the pleasure to lead a workshop with Creve Coure Camera which was sponsored by Olympus at the Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson, MO. The following images were taken during the workshop. This was my first experience at this location. I have photographed the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia many times, so I was somewhat familiar with what to expect. There were many similarities, but there were equally as many differences. One of the differences was that this facility had it’s own gas chamber. I must admit, I had a very eerie feeling in here. The prison operated from 1836 – 2004. Many of the images were processed in-camera with a monochromatic filter and a couple of them in HDR. The equipment I used was the Olympus PEN-F paired with the M.Zuiko ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO & the OM-D E-M5 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO (an amazing combination).

Tales of the Great Allentown Fair

The following images are a collection of my perception of the life and stories of the Allentown Fair. In order to capture these images, it required me to first start a dialog with my subjects, and then after gaining their trust, I would take the picture. This requires one to step out of there comfort zone and try to become a small part of the “culture”. All of the images were shot handheld with the Olympus PEN-F and in many cases the exposures were in excess of a half of a second. I was only able to accomplish this because of the Olympus built in image stabilization system. One additional bonus from this shoot, is that it happened to be the day KISS performed, which provided some additional characters for the evening.

Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

A few weeks ago I did a couple photo-walks & presentations for Creve Coure Camera in St. Louis. The event was sponsored by Olympus. The first photo-walk was at the Cathedral Basilica. The following images are from the day’s shoot. I have traveled a lot domestically/overseas and have photographed my share of Cathedral/Churches and this one is at the very top of the list, as far as beauty and wow factor. The cathedral was built over a 100 years ago and was designated a basilica in 1997 by Pope John Paul II.
