Jim Thorpe Photo Expedition 2015

This past weekend we had another sell out Dan’s Camera City workshop/photoshoot sponsored by Olympus in beautiful Jim Thorpe, PA. Mother Nature started us off with a little bit of rain in the morning. But she cooperated as the day went on. We had a great group of very creative photographers on the excursion. We had private access to the Old Jail, our own train car and amazing opportunities in the town. All-in-all we had a great day and great fun! All my images below were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

Old Westbury Gardens

A couple of weeks ago, I lead a workshop for Berger Brothers in Long Island, New York with Olympus at the Old Westbury Gardens on the North Shore. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The facility is on the National Register of Historic Places, it is the former home of John S. Phipps, his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps and their four children. Completed in 1906 by the English designer, George A. Crawley, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion is nestled amid 200 acres of formal gardens, landscaped grounds, woodlands, ponds and lakes. We had a wonderful day, the colors were at their peak and the group was great! If you are ever in this area, it is a “must see”.

Jim Thorpe Expedition

Two weekends ago I had the honor of leading a workshop in Jim Thorpe, PA for Dan’s Camera that was sponsored by Olympus. The event was sold out, the group was fantastic and we were able to experience some amazing photographic opportunities. We had private access to the “Old Jail”, our own private rail car and mother nature treated us to some of the best fall colors I have ever seen.

Haines Mill

Last week I photographed the historic Haines Mill in South Whitehall Township, PA. The original mill was built around 1760 and reconstructed in 1909 after a fire gutted the interior. The mill was operated until 1956. Today it is operated by the Lehigh County Historical Society. The day we photographed the mill we were treated with a bonus. A fellow by the name of Ken Haines introduced himself and explained he was the great grandson of the original Haines operator. He was kind enough to show us around the mill and some of the ajoining property.

Fall’s Finale

I shot these images a little over a week ago & visited the same location yesterday. What a difference a week makes. There were absolutely no leaves left. Mother nature can be quick and abrupt.

Jim Thorpe – All A Board

A couple of weeks ago during InVision Photo Festival, I was invited to photograph with a group from Olympus in Jim Thorpe. They made arrangements for us to travel on the Lehigh George Scenic Railway and afterwards, we walked through the beautiful town. We had an amazing time and it was great to meet all of the Olympus photographers who traveled here for the event. We were catching the tail end of the fall foliage and were not disappointed.

About two weeks prior to the trip I received my new Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the day before the trip I received the brand new Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens. This was the first time I had the two paired together and what a sweet combination it was.

Saucon Valley Barn Tour

Last month I attended the annual Saucon Valley Barn tour. This is the same organization I did the workshop with in spring. We had fabulous weather and a wonderful time. It is amazing to see some of the eclectic furnishings in some of the converted barns. The one home had huge sampling of Chinese art work (I wasn’t expecting to see that in a converted barn). The same home had a glass piece imbedded into the floor. It caught my eye and I included two images of the piece. When you look at the two images they are one in the same. One shot was taken from the first floor looking down towards the basement and the other taken from the basement looking up. I later learned the glass piece was used in sailing ships in the 1800’s to create light in the ship’s hull.
