Erie Senior Portraits: Class of 2013 Feature

Here are some of my favorite images from this summer’s Class of 2013 senior portrait sessions.We love to capture images of seniors doing the things they love.

We work both in the studio (in our groovy old school building at 26th and Peach in Erie), as well as on location at basically any location the senior would like. Many of these locations were specifically chosen by the senior. Of course we will take you to our favorite places if you don’t have any specific locations picked out. And we very often finish at the beach. We have a special formula for capturing amazing sunset portraits!

For the technically curious, we use Canon cameras and Canon, Sigma and Tamron lenses. I even have a special “Beach Camera” that’s allowed to get sandy! We use Canon and Alien Bees flashes and RadioPoppers and Buff triggers. We rarely tripod, but when we do, we use Manfrotto ball heads and tripods.

I get down and dirty at the beach. I usually get more sand on me than the senior will during the session. My philosophy is: “If you don’t get the right angle, with the right light, at the right moment, with the right pose, it just doesn’t look right!  Right?!”

2012 Save an Eye Game Photos Online!

The 2012 Erie Lion’s Club 2012 Save an Eye game was held on July 27th at Erie’s Veteran’s Memorial Stadium. Perfect weather and a great crowd showed up to support the City and County All-Stars in a well balanced match.

Tied at 13 at the end of regulation time, the two teams battled it out in OT. County’s first try netted them a touchdown and extra point. City responded with a TD and a successful 2 point conversion to win in one of the closest contests in SAE history.

Compliments to both teams for their sportsmanship, to the coaches for their time and talent, and especially the officials, for their excellent work on the field.
