Here's a fall feature I just finished for the paper. I've been collecting leaves for the past week and photographed them individually.

I resigned from the Connecticut Post last Friday and I will be transitioning into a career in the related field of public relations. As of November 12, I will be Communications Coordinator at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. The opportunity comes at an ideal time as the shaky newspaper industry continues to implode - even the staff position I am leaving will not be filled. My new responsibilities will focus around media relations, production of the university's publications, and looking good in a suit and tie everyday. I will be doing some light shooting at the job, but I'll be freelancing and shooting weddings on weekends (which I'll have off consistently for the first time since 2001.) I plan to work on some personal projects as well and will be posting the work on my site and this blog. Stay tuned.

I was digging through some work from last year and found this gem. The story never ran and Mr. Liska never graced the pages of the Connecticut Post with his Oriental Frill Pigeons in hand. Last October, he invited me over to his home for this story and we talked for quite awhile - mostly about life and very little about pigeons. So here is Mr. Liska making his debut to the half of a dozen readers of my blog.

Chimneys Mansion: Interior Design Photography is hard work and very technical. Lighting these rooms correctly takes so much planning, patience, and preparation. It's not the "fly by the seat of your pants" photography I'm accustomed to, but it pays the bills.
