National Dance Day Flash Mob in Maynard

27 Jul , 2014  

Did you know that July 26th was National Dance Day?   I received an email from Carol Leary, who organizes the Maynard Famers’ Market, who asked if I would photograph a flash mob that was being organized for National Dance Day.   Of course I would!

Photographing Fireworks

6 Jul , 2014  

For the Fourth of July I was invited to photograph an event held at a beautiful 19th century farm  in Maine.  The owner has held this event for 20 years now and he wanted to capture this community event that he stages each year — mostly for the kids (and the kid inside all of […]

The Fujifilm X-T1 – On Assignment

15 Jun , 2014  

This is a summary of my experience with the biggest investment I’ve made in camera equipment in over 5 years: the Fuji X-T1.   This is not a review of the camera’s technology, image quality, etc. — there are dozens of them out there and adding another one more assessment of that isn’t of much […]


WAVM Weekend 2014

19 May , 2014  

As the end of another school year approaches the staff of our local student-run television and radio station, WAVM, celebrate with a weekend of activities and an awards banquet that reflects on the year gone by and looks forward to the next.

Giving Back: WAVM Beacon Santa Telethon

5 Jan , 2014  

I’ve been proud to be associated with the WAVM Beacon Santa Telethon for, well, more years that I care to count (I think it might be 20).  This year the students raised over $32,000 to help families have a brighter holiday season and new year.  They do this in something that really doesn’t happen any […]

Hosting Websites – Value is in the eye of the beholder

1 Mar , 2012  

While photography and video services are the primary thing I try to concentrate on here at Confluence Visuals, my goal is to get them those products on to digital platforms, so I consequently end up doing a lot of work on web development as well.   (Not too many people on this planet have been […]

Video Production

Going beyond basic business profile videos

12 Feb , 2012  

About a year ago or so I produced a business profile video for Markarian Electric, a great electrical contracting firm that was based in Waltham and now is operates from Watertown. Eric is one smart cookie and his company is growing beyond the traditional “wires in walls” to include security and home theater offerings, so […]



Exploring Real Estate Video

9 Feb , 2012  

Video has been rapidly become a key component in the selling of homes.  A variety of video tours and “virtual reality” gizmos have been developed and deployed across the industry. I’ve opted to approach this market using a nod to the cinematic approach: rather than a fly-through of the home, I try to highlight it’s […]
