Santa On A Fire Truck

In publishing my Year In Review for 2014 yesterday I realized there were several recent events I failed to blog about. The first is when Santa came to town early on a fire truck. Santa Comes to Greenwich TwpOnce again members of the Stewartsville Col. Fire Co. hosted Santa on a tour of the town. Good boys and girls that were brave enough to go outside in the chill received a special gift from Santa – dogs too!

So even though this is after the fact, I hope each and everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday!

2014: Year In Review with Photography

I enjoy looking back at the past year from a photography point of view. Below are a small assortment of some photos and events recorded in 2014. A lot of Fire Department photos were omitted as well as most of the freelance photos with the Express-Times.


That’s the number of photos I recorded in 2014. There were probably more (not included are smartphone photos and some photos from other camera) but all in all not too shabby.

First, Last

I thought interesting to see the first and last photos of 2014:

Greenwich Township 2014 New Years Day MeetingS110-Photos-086

I took photos at the January 1 Greenwich Township re-organizational meeting. The last photo was at Times Square in NYC. Don’t worry: we were not crazy enough to go in on New Year’s Eve. It was from Monday evening, December 29th.


January featured lots of snow photos: (remember how cold and snowy last winter was?)

As well as ShowKids’s production of “Annie” later in the month.


February was a quieter month. I wanted to try my hand at some sports photography so took some wrestling and basketball photos at some of the Greenwich Township Recreation events:

I also had the opportunity to get to know and photograph “Tower Suite & Friend’s” band.


March featured more sports with basketball:

Then finished up the month with some publicity photos for SKIT’s upcoming production of “Shrek”


April proved to be a very busy month. I photographed a Dance Recital and Raritan Valley Community College,

A family portrait session with the Modde family, A bad fire house fire on the north end of town and finally “Shrek.” There was also a bad fire along the railroad tracks in Phillipsburg. Some of my photos got picked up by AP as it was the Easter Bunny train ride that caused all the commotion.


The craziness continued into May with my schedule getting even busier if that was even possible:

RVCC Commencement 2014SKIT Workshop 2014SPAC "Willy Wonka Jr"

My youngest daughter graduation from Raritan Valley CC, SKIT Workshop production, and my wife’s SPAC show of “Willy Wonka Jr” of which I did the headshots, publicity, show photos and video!

From there it was Freddy Award season. We start off with some rehearsal photos:

The month finally ended on a calmer and warmer note of the Greenwich Township Memorial Day parade.

June continued to be busy but in a different way. Some couples photos for Damian and Kait, engagement photos for Lindsey & Tim, a tanker shuttle drill with the fire department, a model shoot and to finish it up a nice photo walk with Rick Sammon’s at the old World’s Fair.
