Baby Liam came into my life at just four days old when he granted me the honor of being the first newborn I ever held. So for years from now when he finds this post, I want to say thanks for not peeing on me, buddy! ?
Hey Blog, it's been a while! One of these days I'll treat you the way you deserve to be treated.
Until then, here are some shots a I grabbed on a recent adventure to Island Beach State Park with fellow photographer and anti-blogger Tim Kauger.
If you're anything like me, your Facebook feed was flooded with images of this mysterious halo around the sun. Well, being the type of person that I am, of course I needed to:
- Photograph it
- Learn all that I could about what made it happen
Washington, D.C.-based music blog All Things Go was gracious enough to invite me to photograph Bad Books at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. (Thanks again, Jared!) All "Cinco de Drinko" jokes aside (if it's going to have a stupid nickname, shouldn't it at least be "Drinko de Mayo"? Who do I talk to about changing that?), the band put on a great show, complete with faux-Counting Crows covers and plenty of witty banter. Bad Books, a side project of Manchester Orchestra and solo act Kevin Devine, were invited to support Silversun Pickups on a US tour.
If you like great coffee, appreciate hard-working small businesses, or just want to support a good cause, buy a bag of coffee from Red House Roasters in Union City, NJ. These guys travel the world to find new, exotic flavors from farms that respect their workers, utilize natural farming methods, and above all, have prime coffee beans.
Is there a sweeter smell than that of nostalgia? Introducing the latest toy in my photographic arsenal, the Game Boy Camera! That's right, folks -- these 256x224 pixel head shots will be the talk of the town! Black-and-white is all the rage right now in the low-end photo market, so snap yours up now before my Game Boy Printer runs out of stickers to print them on.
Notice anything different about Dan Schenker.com? Well, for starters, it's officially live! As you can see, that nasty "Coming Soon" sign has officially been banished forever off my "Photography" link. Click through to see a handful of my best work. Soon, I'll have event coverage, portraits, and all sorts of other fun surprises to add to it.
