Bonding with the Hasselblad

Boston 2005
This was one of my first trips in to Boston while I attended Hallmark Institute of Photography in the Fall of 2005. I was still learning on how to use my Hasselblad 501c camera and quickly realized it wasn't easy to use for street photography. Towards the end of my year at HIP, I got to meet Skip Cohen (who was the President of Hasselblad USA at the time) and showed him this image. He was very impressed and couldn't stop talking about it to my instructors. I ended up giving him a print of this image and he told me with excitement he was going to have it framed and place it next to an Ansel Adams photograph in his office. Looking back, I'm sure he did have it framed and it was in his office, but I will never know since he is no longer at Hasselblad. Oh well...

On Assignment

Monticello Fire Department 2003

This is one of my favorite images I took of the Monticello Fire Department during one of their training sessions. They were training on how to control and put out a fire from a natural gas truck.

The First Post

Dock at Grand Portage Minnesota 2010

For my first blog posting, I thought I would use one of my recent images from a camping trip I took to the north shore.
