Hopewell Furnace

Hopewell Furnace is a restored iron plantation built in 1771 and is a national historic site located in Berks County, PA. I have always been intrigued by this place. As a young boy, I remember my parents taking me here. I have photographed this place before, but never in the middle of winter. The day was very cold and filled with periodic rain, sleet & snow. Not the ideal conditions for a photoshoot, except that it is great for not having many people in your pictures. All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

Graffiti Warehouse

On New Year’s Eve day my nephew, Matt (a new Olympus shooter) turned me on to a place he had visited several times that includes some amazing artistic graffiti. It is an abandoned warehouse that skateboarders frequent. Here are a few shots from the day.

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).

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.

MacArthur Road Car Show

I always enjoy photographing car shows and this weekend was no exception. I don’t pretend to know a lot about cars, but I do enjoy capturing their various graphic elements. My friend Dave and I had shot this event a couple of years ago and thought it would be fun to check it out again. Many of these images were straight out of the camera using using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 MkII “Dramatic Tone” filter. Most of these images were shot with one of my favorite lenses, the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge 175th Anniversary

On Sunday, June 12, 2016 Bogert’s Covered Bridge celebrated its 175 Anniversary. Bogert’s is located in the Lehigh Parkway which is part of the Allentown, PA city parks. This is a location I enjoy shooting. There were many groups present for the celebration. I especially enjoyed the reenactors. I was fortunate to have met Gen. U.S. Grant (aka Ken Serfass), President Abraham Lincoln (aka Rich Neely) and Fife player (aka Chris Zimmerman). These three gentlemen were a pleasure to photograph. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with the 12-40mm f2.8 Pro or the 7-14mm f2.8 Pro lens.

Historic Bridge Details

I’m fortunate to live in an area that has diversity as it relates to contemporary & historic structures. However, I find myself drawn more to the historic structures. These two images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the M.Zuiko ED 300mm f4.0 IS PRO lens. This lens has a full frame 600mm equivalent which is great for creating compression in the image. Which was what I was trying accomplish with these images.

This covered bridge is know as Bogert’s Bridge. It was built in 1841-42. It takes its name from the Bogert family. Peter Bogert purchased the land on which the bridge is located in 1744 as part of his farm. Its most distinctive feature is two long arch trusses resting on abutments at either end. Of which, was my focus for the following images.
