Earl’s Hide A Way

Sebastian, Florida is well known for many reason.  To the biker, it’s Earl’s Hide a way.  Earls is located right on the river and one of the best views.  Sebastian itself is a picturesque location, throw in some visiting bikers, a great sunset and you have the perfect makings for great photography.

I caught up with Maine Biker, and Drop Zone Owner, Fred Cotreau and his custom chopper for some a sunset photo session full of color.  Fred is a hardcore biker, iron worker, skydiver, and overall tough guy and that’s what I was out to capture in this shoot.

Coming down from the great white north this time of year, Fred was all about creating something to remember, his Florida Vacation.  Over a couple of beers we came up with some ideas and then just had some fun shooting and documenting some of the great weather and good times, Sebastian, Florida has to offer.  Once the ride is over it’s back to the frozen forest of Maine with only the photos to jog the memory of warmth, forever sunsets and good times at Earl’s Hide A Way!

Thanks Fred.

Leslie McGurik – If Rocks Could Sing

Leslie McGurik is one amazing women.  Many have not heard her name.  I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with her, here her story and dive into years of work, products, ideas and stories.  I was lucky enough to catch up with her for a presentation on her work, especially “If Rocks Could Sing.”  The place was packed.  Recently her focus and work is making a huge impact on the U.S.  There is no end in sight for this women’s success of fun.

Leslie McGuirk is an internationally known writer and illustrator of bestselling children’s books.  Leslie is a gentle, fun, happy soul that has no bounds to her energy.  I thought I could keep up with anyone. Leslie is an outpouring of ideas, concepts and everything that is fun.  Leslie is one of those fascinating people who never grows up, meets everyone, is involved with everything and has fun doing it all.

Originally published in Japan, Leslie’s illustrations were made into over 800 products for the high-end department store Takashimaya.

Leslie’s designs have been featured on carpeting, fabric and wallpaper for Tokyo Disneyland Hotel. Her Tucker books for children have been a favourite of little ones and reviewers for over a decade.

Publishers Weekly said, “McGuirk’s ingenious characters and illustrations are filled with quirky comedy.”

Family Portraits With Tobby The Wonder Dog

Danielle is a gorgeous subject to photograph and today it was time for her beautiful puppy Tobby!  Tobby the lovable wonderdog is a healthy, stout and strong puppy that has no end to play.  Family Portraits are not complete without Pet Portraits, just ask a dog owner!  Getting great shots of your pet in their prime is something many will cherish forever.

The river setting by her home is an amazing place and I use any reason to get on the docks, be one with the river and shoot anything I see.  This was a fun shoot and hope to do more portraits out here.  There is always time for good light and I haven’t found anyone who is unable to smile while being on the RIVER!

Thanks guys for such a fun shoot!
