Surfers are put on a 2 week notice (on call) and once the swell is on in the ocean less than 24 hours notice is given and the event is held the next day.

Bryan and Brittany Wedding Video/Slideshow

I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at Bear Creek on October 16, 2010 and I am still amazed at the quality of product and the professionalism of the Bear Creek Resort and Staff. I will highly recommend Bear Creek Mountain Resort to host your wedding, its worth the look.

Most people ask what my style of photography is, and I answer is "my own". I don't really fall into a "traditional" or a "photojournalistic" approach but rather tell the story of the day through my lens and blend the diffrent styles together. I have attended photographic workshops by the best photographers in the world and it has really helped develop my own unique style. In the wedding video below you will see a nice blend of different types of photography to record that most important day.

Bryan and Brittany's Wedding Saturday Oct 16, 2010







Bryan and Brittany's wedding was held on a beautiful fall day at Bear Creek Resort in Macungie, PA, Saturday October 16, 2010. Bear Creek Resort is an awesome facility to host a wedding. A nice area to hold the ceremony outdoors and even indoors in inclement weather. A full service hotel with all amentities,food and drinks are fantastic and reasonably priced . Anyone looking to get married in the future should take a look at Bear Creek Resort to host their wedding.

Have a look at some of the photographs from this awesome day.

Commercial Work-Advertising Photography


The original framed photo is on display at Surf Unlimited, Ship Bottom, LBI. One day the phone rang and it was one of the surfers in the photo who recognized his board in the ad, his son works for the store and was able to get the photo hung on the wall in the store. I picked the surf/bike/shore theme since I surf and bike---Here is the final output from some of the commercial photography I have done for the American Red Cross, Jersey Coast Chapter. The photographs used in some of their advertisements are provided by my studio. I also photograph their Rock n' Ride bike ride and party in the park every September and the pre-season Rock n' Ride kick off on LBI in the spring. I will be working on shooting the theme photo for Rock n' Ride 2011 that will be held on September 11, 2011, within the next few weeks.

The above photo was shot a few years ago and was in my photography portfolio I am glad it worked out as an advertisement for a Veteran's Day event for the Red Cross a few years later.
