Quick Out of the Shoots in the New Year

Well, I've really been enjoying the new year so far. I have busy working on a new website that I hope to have completed in a month or so. I'll be sure to let you all know when it is up and running. In addition, my wedding photography business has taken off and I already have numerous bookings. If you or someone you know is looking for a wedding photographer, I'd be happy to help out. Here are some of the images I have made at my newspaper this year. 2010 is going to be a big year for me. Stay tuned. -M

Bird on a Wire

Well, it doesn't get more cliche than a shot of birds roosting on a telephone pole. But I was going back through all of my images from this past year and stumbled across this image. It was one of those off the cuff shots you do think much of at the time. Something about it caught my eye and I thought I would share it with all of you.

Fairfield Firefighters - A Day in the Life

Earlier this month, a reporter and I accompanied members of Engine 37 of the Fairfield Fire Department to document a day in the life for them. The guys were very gracious with opening their doors to us. I've spent some time documenting firefighters in the past but I forgot how hard these guys work even when there isn't something burning. There is always something to do. We had a lot of fun with them.

December in Review

December has always been a great month for me. Despite the obvious Christmas appeal, it also is the month I was born. So close to the new year and have taken to using the month as a time for reflection. This December was particularly nice due to the fact that I was finally able to have a vacation and be home with the family for the holidays. It just doesn't feel like the holidays unless I am back in Chicago with the sleet and rain. It was a great time. I now am focusing my attention on the coming year. Changes are on the horizon. Big things to come. Can't wait. Happy New Year everybody. -M
