Cinestudio Turns 50

Cinestudio, my longtime favorite movie theatre on the campus of Trinity College in Hartford is celebrating 50 years of continually showing films with the finest projection and sound quality available in a truly magnificent setting. Photography was done for a commemorative brochure highlighting new exterior signage and interiors views along with portraits of management and staff.

John Legend in Concert

Singer, songwriter, actor and producer John Legend, winner of ten Grammy Awards, along with Academy and Golden Globe Awards, gave an inaugural concert to students, faculty and community at Choate Rosemary Hall School’s new music hall. The concert highlighted the opening of the new Ann & George Colony Hall, a 51,761 square foot state-of-the-art auditorium and classroom building on the school’s Wallingford campus. In addition to the 1,070 seat auditorium, the building also has facilities for dance and music programs and is home for the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra.

The Raw Beauty of Iceland

Iceland is a photographer’s paradise, recently becoming more popular after its wild landscapes have been used in many movies and series. With just under 350,000 people, it is the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with two-thirds of the population living around the capital of Reykjavik.

Beyond the capital, incredibly beautiful and often otherworldly landscapes of glaciers flowing to the sea, volcanoes, lava fields, mountains and huge waterfalls make for an abundance of visual inspiration.

Iceland has a temperate climate despite its position close to the Arctic Circle, but while there, we had dangerously high (and bitter cold) winds which made getting around and capturing the scenery a bit more challenging in the few hours of daylight. Overcast weather did not allow us to see the Northern Lights which we were highly hoping for, maybe next time.
