Frank Gehry Architecture in Las Vegas – Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health


While in Las Vegas I had the opportunity to take some night time photography of some Frank Gehry Architecture. One of my favorite architects, this building was designed by him and became the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

Though his architecture is different it is a work of art and I have this love for unique architecture. In order to get there, I ordered a taxi to take me and the taxi driver was totally clueless on why I wanted to photograph this building. I’m just a big fan and Love Frank Gehry architecture.

Architect Frank Gehry says he wanted a swirling stainless steel structure he designed for Las Vegas to be unique – to stand out from what he called “the cacophony” of high-rise casinos and condos forming the spine of Sin City’s sprawl.

Getting his first look at the nearly complete Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, he declared himself satisfied.

“It took my breath away,” he said. “I like the way it fits. I wasn’t trying to compete with the chaos around it.”

“I mean, some people may think it’s over the top,” he added. “I don’t think so.” And as far as Im concerned it’s LOVE at first sight. Frank Gehry – you are a a big fan of mine. I love your work. It is very different and that’s what makes it unique.

First Love



This cute engagement shoot with Devon and Joshua was a joy for me.   Though we started with some very bright sun , we managed to find shade and the result of this photography is priceless.  What a cute couple getting married in February 2013.   I was so excited to meet them and talk about their special day.   Planning a wedding is never easy and finding a photographer is hard too.     There are so many photographers like me who love to shoot and are doing this work on a part -time basis.   I love what I do and with pictures like this I don’t think I’ll ever stop photography   Congratulations Devon and Joshua on your engagement and may all your wishes coming true.

Photography Love

A Great Day with a 35mm 1.4 Prime Lens


Several weeks ago, I became the owner of a prime lens – Canon 1.4 35mm and got to test this little lens on some cute little models.  All I can say is WOW!  Love it and it will definitely become one of my favorites.   Just recently I also became the proud owner of a new addition  – A Canon Mark III and I can’t even describe this phenomenon.   So much to learn, so little time.   Photography doesn’t have a destination.  It keeps going for those who are serious about getting into it. Learning this business is endless.  For now, enjoy and continue doing what you LOVE.   For me the answer is obvious.

An 85mm Canon Event with Erin & Nick



DID SAY IN OMG!!!!!!!! The ultimate test was had with my 85 1.8 Canon mediocre Price Lens ($400ish) on a 5D Mark II body.  The 1.2 85mm lens will cost you $2000.00  and you can put that on your wish list for Santa Claus.    So here I am wanting to shoot  a couple with my 1.8 for a long time and here come Erin & Nick.   I  put this lens to the ultimate test and shot at 1.8 using only ambient light.  The results are amazing!!   Ladies & Gentlemen – GO BUY NOW!!    This lens has exceeded all of my expectations.  I now see why the  PRO’s use this lens exclusively for Weddings and Engagement Shoots.   The trick to using it is like target practice with a gun.  Using your focal point (center, which is what I used), the results of the many photos I took where endless and tack sharp.  WIth Light-room 3 I added just a tad of contrast/sharp and this is the end result.   As to Nick & Erin –  newly married – I had such a great time “testing” my lens and couldn’t have been happier working with such an awesome couple.  I didn’t want the night to end and look forward to shooting with them again hopefully soon.     My next challenge with this lens is to shoot the 85mm lens using more than 2 people in a shoot and working with a group 4-5 and seeing the outcome of photographing at 1.8.  Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations greatly appreciated.   As to this lens – I highly recommend you GO BUY NOW!!!
