I tell my wife that if you want to provide instant cool to a movie just add motorcycles and helicopters. No helos in this post, but we do have some really cool motorcycles. I shot these AMA and CSS racers running practice laps at the JenningsGP circuit in North Florida. I love motorcycle roadracing; it’s a great sport that demands supreme skill and courage. With serious lean angles and triple-digit speeds, it’s one of the ultimate tests of man and machine. No roll cages for these guys!
I like getting the opportunity to shoot for a variety of clients and subjects. I think it makes a well-rounded photographer with the experience to handle any situation. Want some killer bridal portraits on a speeding motorcycle? No problem.
Mike and Stacey were married in sunny Gainesville, Florida at the Sweetwater Branch Inn, a beautiful bed and breakfast complex featuring two restored Victorian homes, a lovely garden, and Koi pond. The November weather was perfect. I enjoyed documenting their story and offer them best wishes on their life’s journey together!
We recently returned from Quebec City, which is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year. For seven days we strolled the streets of the old city, discovering its many wonders and meeting its polite, hard-working, and hospitable citizens. Quebecers have a unique history and culture dating back to the city’s founding by Samuel de Champlain in 1608. Much of the original French-style buildings still exist in the old city, and the French language and culture still prevail. The city is a delight for any Francophile. As an experiment, I left my pro gear at home and took along only a compact point and shoot (Canon G9) that I operated on manual.

The best crepes I’ve ever had. Okay, I haven’t had many. But they were made to order and delicious.

Scott and Jessica exchanged vows at the beautiful Baughman Center on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville and held their reception at the Haile Plantation Country Club. It was a joy meeting all their friends and family, and I was thrilled and honored to document this milestone event in their lives.
