I got a call from a photo agency in California asking me to work with a beautiful Brazilian actress at a few Orlando locations in August 2013 for the Brazilian magazine Quem.  The magazine had set up times and locations to meet up with Disney media relations cast members at the Magic Kingdom and at the Mall of Millennia.

I met Natallia Rodrigues at the Hilton at Bonnet Creek, just outside of Disney property.  Quem writer Giulianna Campos was also there to lead the way, and provided great artistic direction.  Since I knew that Portuguese was the primary language of Brazil, I also asked my friend Jason Crane to come along.  Jason travels to Brazil for work as a real estate agent, and has picked up the language.

Two Disney shuttles escorted us to the Magic Kingdom, where Natallia spent some private time with Mickey Mouse!  Next was a quick stop at Gaston’s Tavern for LeFou’s Brew, a frozen apple drink.  We then rode a few rides, including Goofy’s Barnstormer Roller Coaster, Mad Tea Party and Dumbo.  The Disney safety team had a special harness for me to wear, so my cameras wouldn’t go flying on any of the rides we went on.

We then traveled to the Mall of Millenia in Orlando, where Natallia shopped at Carmen Steffens for shoes and purses.

Natallia loved her visit, and even went back to Disney the following day… without me.  :(  She loves the photo app Instagram, and posted several photos during our day.

I had a great day with Natallia and wish her the best!

I got an assignment to photograph Golf Channel talent at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach in 2012.  After photographing Sir Nick Faldo in the booth on the 18th hole, he left for lunch.  Knowing he wasn’t going to walk a mile to the lunch tent, I asked him if I could hop on his cart for a quick photo op.  He was funny driving through the crowds, saying things like “foreign driver coming through!”

With nine PGA Tour wins and 30 European Tour wins, Sir Nick Faldo had a lot of success during his golf career. But he seems to be enjoying his down time now that he is an analyst of the sport he once played.

While home in Biddeford, Maine in early August 2013, I headed to the Fortunes Rock Beach area to shoot some night exposures of the Milky Way.  I chose the beach because of its optimum viewing area and minimum light pollution.

I brought along my Canon 5D Mark III.  My exposure settings were 1600 iso, 30 second shutter speed and my aperture was f2.8 with a 16-35mm lens set at 16mm.  The photo was taken at 9:59pm.

I brought the raw photo into Digital Photo Professional for color correction and to tweak the exposure and sharpness.  No colors were added to the photo.

Upon closer review, you can notice a few satellites and planes flying.  The small waves in the photo are blurry due to the long exposure.  There also appears to be a sand castle in the lower left hand of the frame.

The Milky Way is visible to the naked eye in the dark areas of southern Maine.  Get your camera and tripod out and make some photos!
