Greg’s Top 100 of 2014!

Being this is my 100th blog post, I thought it fitting to share 100 of my favorite shots from 2014. I was asked in December to submit my favorite photo from 2014 and I have to admit that I was caught a little flat-footed. Over the course of a calendar year I capture tens of thousands of photos covering a wide variety of subjects and it’s difficult to choose just one—so I narrowed it down to 100.

In November I marked the start of my sixth year in business with the studio, and have grown my client base to a point were I can now begin to focus more on projects that I really enjoy while still supporting my family and keeping the doors to the studio open.

We moved last January to a new location to it’s current address of 186 North Street in Bennington, VT, and coming out of the initial first five years—a period that I’m told most photographers will fail financially—I’m feeling very optimistic that the studio client base will continue to grow as I provide professional, creative, and effective imagery to support their respective businesses.

My long-term goal is to continue to improve my skills through constant study and experimentation. I have by no means mastered anything, and feel like I am still in the infancy of my career. I had recently contacted a seasoned photographer whom I follow and he told me that although he has been in the business for 25 years he felt that he still had so much to learn. As with any job one must push the envelope and evolve with the new camera and software technologies that are constantly reshaping the industry.

The slideshow I created attempts to show the diversity of the sessions I shoot either on location or in studio, and I’ve sprinkled a few personal shots in that I really love, like flowers and sunsets. I could have easily added another 100 to this list and could tweak this until the cows come home. Speaking of which, I think if I had to pick just one image that I really loved the most it would be “The Girls of Brace Farm” taken during an assignment for Efficiency Vermont at Brace Farm in Ferrisburgh on a bitter cold January day. I just loved how the light was streaming in the windows and lighting up the cobwebs and the steam from the cows breath, and the barn cat huddled in the aisle just made it perfect.

So grab a cup of coffee, and turn up the speakers. Enjoy!

Let’s Rehearse

Whenever I have the opportunity, I really like to attend the rehearsal for a wedding. Not only is it a great way to familiarize with the venue, but it’s a great way for me to meet and get to know the family and wedding party a little before the actual wedding. I’ve shot several weddings at The Old First Church in Bennington, Vermont (arguably one of the most beautiful in the state, not to mention one of the oldest), but I still take rehearsal shots to help me get things dialed in and get focused for the next day. Here are the unfiltered pics taken at Erin and Kris’ wedding last fall. We had a fantastic time from start to finish and I was honored that they asked me to document their special day.
