…this session was pure fun from beginning to end. So much laughter, they showed up ready to have a great time which makes for great pictures. But joy cannot be manufactured. These friends truly care about each other and love each other. That’s what made this shoot so fabulous! They are from Berklee College of Music, all students born in different countries…
Another amazing Boston Marathon is in the books. This one was really special, so much recovery and inspiration. If you have never seen the marathon in person and you love sports and incredible stories, The Boston Marathon is a must. Every participant has a story, and most often it is a magnificent story. Many of these athletes are shown here. This blog post has 134 photos, and there would have been more but I had to leave early to get to work. So most of these images are of the first athletes to pass through the 8 mile mark. In no way do these images capture the energy that was so present on this day. But I did my best to show you some of the faces that make up this fabulous life changing event.
I am very fortunate that most dog owners give me, usually a perfect stranger, full permission to photograph their dogs. As soon as I saw this amazingly gorgeous 33 pound Husky named Lily, I knew I had to have some fun shooting her. I love getting lost in the moment when I have a camera, when time flies and I am so present and relaxed. Lily was exceptional, so beautiful, spirited and happy, a tribute to her, to nature, and to her gracious owner Brenda. Thank you!
Here I present several images from Gilbert Mansour’s Berklee recital…truly amazing musicians, wonderful people in this group, many countries represented on stage. Music continues to prove to be the great healer! Thank you to Gilbert for inviting me. I was very happy to be there!
I had the honor of photographing the 2016 Berklee Middle Eastern Concert last weekend. Here I present several portraits of some of the musicians. This concert featured the music of Syria and was so emotional, thought provoking, and timely. And to see so many countries represented on stage, together, their love and friendship for one another so present…music is an amazing thing!!! This concert was directed by Christiane Karam.
