LB Wheaton, Sigma 150-500

So if you're thinking about buying a lens or want to check out some cool equipment then head down to LB Wheaton. I stopped in and had no idea that I would be walking out with a super telephoto lens. Being able to hold it in my hands and experience it was enough to put me over the edge. Great experience at LB Wheaton.

Ashley & Matthew

So for this engagement shoot I thought we would shoot somewhere completely different, Green Hill Park in Worcester. I've only recently visited this park, seeing it from afar for my entire life. I was surprised to find it clean, spacious and welcoming. There is a small petting zoo, a Vietnam memorial, ponds, woods and picnic tables. We spent some time walking around and getting used to the process of having ones photo taken. Here's the photos.  #engagement #wedding #greenhillpark #worcester #unitymike

Fire in Worcester, 43 Bowdoin St & 40 Williams

Fire in Worcester, 43 Bowdoin St & 40 Williams

April 24th, 2014. Fire at Bowdoin Street and building behind house on Williams Street. I happened to be in my car with some equipment and headed over to get some photos. When I arrived and made  my way around the area to various angles I could see that the Worcester Fire Department had the fire well under control. Police blocked off the streets and neighbors watched. A few residents from the building were in the area and we're easy to spot. I wish them the best and hope family and friends can help them out like I was helped with my apartment fire a few years ago.
