I was hoping for a good snow and mother nature didn’t disappoint. In mid January we had a heavy snow so I grabbed my camera and headed to one of my favorite spots, Spring Grove. I’m there a lot in the warmer months so I thought it fair I made a trip in the cold.
One of my favorite things to witness during the wedding day, the First Look. Luckily, I get to photograph a lot of them. Thanks to Kate & Nick for letting me be part of their day.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone, from the staff at ET Photography. (The staff is just me)
My dog Sam. Just took an older image and added the magic of Photoshop.
A chilly rainy Saturday on the 1st of December didn’t damper any fun on Kristyn & Cody’s wedding. I really have a fun time shooting weddings and this bride and groom made if even better. Thanks to the happy couple for letting me part of their day.
One of the most popular spots in Cincinnati is anywhere where the skyline along the Ohio River is visible. After the last Bengals loss I needed an emotional outlet so I grabbed my camera and headed down to the river. Besides, I wanted to capture the visiting faris wheel before it left. Prints of this image (and many more) are for sale here.
Nothing better than a fun senior and a lot of autumn leaves for some pictures. Mother Nature was nice to us as we explored Whitewater Park for some great picture taking locations. Thats Natalie for letting me be your photographer.

It was raining hard outside so I decided to sit down with photoshop and see what I can accomplish with some of my older images. The idea I had was to create artwork in the fantasy genre. After the dust settled this was my first attempt and I really like it. I’m currently working with a cosplay model so more artwork is on the horizon.
Its that time of year professional tennis is back in Cincinnati (for the next week at least) and I was lucky enough to get invited back as a photographer for the Western Southern tournament. I took this shot last night of Serena Williams in her easy (for her at least) win over Daria Gavrilova. Serena has to be the most successful pro athlete of all time.

Its a digital charcoal drawing of Jomo. A male silverback gorilla living at the Cincinnati Zoo.
I was able to do some pet portraits last week and learned that some pets pose better than some humans. Nice job Sam and Chloe.
The Banks here in Cincinnati runs between the entertainment district and Ohio River. Its become the place to visit here in Cincinnati. I found out in late May that, yes, you are able to get married on The Banks. I shot this for Maxim Photo Studio.
It was as if mother nature knew Nicole and Tony were getting married and stopped raining during the important parts of the day. Lake Lyndsay was the perfect venue for the happy couple.
Thanks to both Kristyn and Cody for spending a crisp April morning with me visiting two beautiful Cincinnati locations. Kristyn choose two perfect spots for her and Cody's engagement pictures; Ault Park and The Banks. I look forward to shooting their wedding in December.
To keep myself busy during the weekdays I picked up a small sports job shooting for Gotham Soccer. Their spring league started last Sunday and I was asked to cover the opening.
I am a big fan of technology and follow advancements being made some of the tech giants. However, sometimes I think technology is taking us in the wrong direction. While visiting my son in Florida my wife and I decided to soak up the warmth of the beach. Back home it was snowing and ice covered the streets. Yet, in southern Florida it was warm and beautiful. While my wife was taking in some sun (even on overcast days the sun peaks through on a beach), I was people watching and noticed almost everyone was on their cellphones. Gone are the footballs, Frisbees and frolicking in the sand of yesteryear. And before you ask, yes, I took the picture with a cellphone.
I was lucky enough to get invited back to Bridge Logistics yesterday to take portraits of their employees. Bridge is a Cincinnati based logistics company. Bridge Logistics' employees can view their images here.
I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas season and happy New Year. I'm looking forward to the 2018 photography year.
Employees of the Bridge Logistics were treated with a Christmas Party at the Westin downtown and I was lucky enough to be invited along. Of course, I brought my camera and had a great time capturing images of everyone enjoying the party. They can view and download their images here.
