Ballet in the Flats
I met Jessica through North Pointe Ballet and this Spring we met up to do a session away from the performance stage and in the streets of downtown Cleveland. It was a pretty chilly evening when we met on the East Bank of the Flats for our session but the sun was shining! We managed to only shiver in between photos!
The Nutcracker Ballet
I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to photography the Nutcracker Ballet as performed by North Pointe Ballet. I started early during their warm-ups and then was given access to go anywhere on stage as they ran a full costume dress rehearsal of the show from beginning to end. Here are just a few of my favorite images! ...
Wedding in Vermillion
I went to a wedding in Vermillion. The rain came and went the night before and it turned into a beautiful late summer day. Since my nephew was the groom it was the rare opportunity to spend a day "working" with my family! Things started out unlike they always do. This wild card on this morning was the requirement of stage for ...
Taylor Dances in Cleveland
Taylor dances in Cleveland in this post of images. She is another of the fantastic instructors at Dance Studio M. As usual for me, it was a just a walk through the city and picking out the spots that looked interesting in the moment. Made a lot of great images!
Dance in Cleveland
Michelle is the owner and one of the instructors at Dance Studio M in Solon and I met with her and a few others from her studio to dance in Cleveland a few weeks ago. I never have much of a plan for these sessions. It's a bit of seeing how people dance then playing off the landscape around us - the buildings, alleys - and blendin ...
Ballet Photography in Cleveland
If there is one thing I want to do as much of as possible, it would be ballet photography in Cleveland. Taking talented dancers into the city and making wonderful images with them like I did a few weeks ago with Abby.
I met Abby when she danced the Nutcracker with the Cleveland Ballet Company. After a taking her picture in cos ...
Scott and Kevin Married in Cleveland
Scott and Kevin married in Cleveland several weeks back. Surrounded by family and friends they finally were legally able to have the wedding they always should have been allowed to have. The day was a bit of whirlwind. All wedding days are to some extent. Nerves, a hurried rush to be ready on time and then the joy of being toge ...
Maternity Portraits at Mentor Headland’s Beach
This maternity portrait session took place a couple weeks ago and Mentor Headland Beach. That beach is on of Rev and Vijay's favorite places to visit so it was fitting to go there in the evening, stroll along the sand and take pictures as the sunset started.
Christy & Andrew – Wedding in Canton, Ohio
This wedding was a whirlwind! Christy and Andrew were a fantastic couple and I am so glad they were the first wedding of my 2014 season. The locations were fantastic. We started the morning getting ready at Glenmoor Country Club, headed to St Peter's in Canton for a beautiful ceremony and then to Congress Lake for a perfect eve ...
This idea of street photography in an airport came to me a while ago, but finally getting around to acting on it. As I make more trips I'll continue to share more pictures.
Inspired to Tri
Every August I get up early and head downtown to my little part in helping out United Cerebral Palsy - Cleveland by taking pictures they can use to promote their involvement with the Cleveland Triathlon.
Watching these families and their children, the support they get from loved ones and friends, is really inspiring. This is th ...
These People Made My Year
Thank you to all my clients on 2010. So many of you have been with me since the beginning of this adventure into making LoC a business. Many of you were new this year. Many of you have already made plans to work with me again 2011.
I thank you. It's as simple as that. Without you, there wouldn't be Left of Center Photograph ...
Personal Pictures in Review
These pictures aren't people. They are pictures I take for me. The things I'm shooting when I'm not with a client and I'm not chasing my own kids around with a camera. I have to say, LoC was a lot busier this year than I had expected (Thank You Clients!) so I didn't shoot on my time as much as I have in the past. Still, I did ...
What are You Going to Do?

I've been thinking of what I want to do photographically in 2010. One thought was "a picture a day". It's a great way ...
