InVision/NMIH 2012 Photography Workshop

On the last day of the InVision Photo Festival I, along with Dave Rehrig, Ryan Hulvat, Bruce Ward and Rick Holt, had the opportunity to facilitate the photo-shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History. To say we had fun would be an understatement! Please check out the video by clicking HERE .

The Sleeping Giant

My friend and fellow photographer, Dave Rehrig obtained an image, while visiting Penn State which, we believe, was taken by Walker Evans. The scene was taken in South Bethlehem, PA. However, it wasn’t signed or noted anywhere. We both went online and couldn’t verify the photographer. In any event, we attempted to duplicate the scene and the first of the following images is my attempt at a modern day view of this place. While we were snooping around, I found a few other perspectives I enjoyed.

Independence Day at SteelStacks

I spent the 4th of July at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA. It is an incredible venue for so many things. Especially photography.

Lonanconing Silk Mill

A week and a half ago I traveled to the Lonaconing Silk Mill in Lonaconing, Maryland (this is about as far west as you can go in Maryland). I traveled with a photography group led by a very talented photographer, Denise Ippolito. I had seen some images in the past and my hopes were that the mill would still have some equipment in place. Well, I can tell you my expectations were more than met. The 4+ hour drive was more than worth it. Nature’s elements are starting to penetrate the building. The gentleman who owns the facility, Herb, is trying to figure out a way to save the structure.  The last time it was in operation was 1957.

National Museum of Industrial History

A little over a week ago I had the opportunity to shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History (NMIH) located on the former Bethlehem Steel property in Bethlehem, PA. This was an incredible experience. The staff was extremely helpful during the couple of hours we were shooting. Their web site indicates their purpose is to tell the story of America’s Industrial achievements and the accomplishments of its inventors, managers and preserve the record of industry’s development and advancements from the middle 1800’s until present time.
