18 Century Couple

Bobbie Wayne and Dan Mozell wear replicas of 18th century - Colonial Era clothing, and perform period music

I had the pleasure of photographing my brother Dan Mozell and his wife Bobbie Wayne, in her art studio in Gloucester. Their 18th Century attire adds a feel of authenticity to their occasional music performances. Bobbie plays Celtic harp and Dan accompanies on guitar and mandolin.

After we completed a series of poses of the duo, Bobbie switched to a different type of formal attire for another portrait.

When the bright yellow and red leaves of New England’s maples, birch, beech and oak have fallen, there is still plenty of color to photograph. I especially enjoy the rust colors that emerge from the cattails, willow, and grasses. On a dry, clear afternoon in November, the light quickly warms as the sun drops toward the horizon.

Three Days of Shooting In October

In three consecutive days I shot architecture in Boston’s South End, a client’s family reunion, and took a hike with my daughter to one of our favorite nature venues. The contrast in photo assignments was invigorating and I felt very much “in the zone” with all my creative energies flowing

Although I’ve lived in the Boston area for many years, this long, rocky beach, Wollaston Beach has escaped me. On my way home from a rather urban photo shoot in Quincy, Massachusetts, I had a strong urge to shoot at least one good landscape.

This weekend I returned to some favorite photographic and hiking haunts in Franconia Notch and found familiar themes and a few surprises, including earlier fall colors and a rugged volunteer trail crew. Continue reading

The Wedding Dance

The constant heavy rain on this wedding day made the outdoor ceremony impossible, as well as the seaside venue for the couple’s portraits. But everyone made the best of it and this couple’s joy was evident every time they danced that night.

Although it’s a mere 12 miles from Boston, the forest protected by Breakheart Reservation is lush and resplendent in late summer green.

Old Hollow Oak Tree

Old Hollow Oak Tree

As a certified tree hugger I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve been photographing trees since I first held a camera. I think it was the free-form sculpture of the 1960’s and 70’s that I saw at New York City’s museums and galleries that taught me to admire trees for their shape and form. On this sultry, hot, nearly unbearable day in Massachusetts, when a walk of about two miles in the The Appleton Farms Grass Rides (Ipswich, MA) was the most I could muster, I made just one photograph.

With bright sun, strong shadows, and burn-out highlights on the oily leaves of the Continue reading

Revealing The Covered Bridge: Pulling out the details of light and shadow

Why do we love covered bridges? Perhaps for the same reasons we love watching the ocean or a crackling fireplace. I’ve been over the Albany Covered Bridge which crosses the Swift River, slicing through the White Mountain National Forest, a hundred times. On this day, accompanied by my 7 year old assistant Molly Mozell, I took a few moments to plant my tripod on the ancient wooden timbers of this landmark, and took about 5 bracketed exposures of the interior of the span.
