The New Lowe Pro Passpost Sling II

The new LowePro Passport Sling II This bag is the perfect “blend in” with soceity bag and so perfect because it does just that-it blends in. No one would ever think you are carrying close to $8000 worth of Professional camera gear inside. The bag comes with a removable padded camera box and even though the bag is not made to carry a Pro DSLR, my full size pro camera DSLR (Nikon D3, D3s, D4 , Canon Mark2N) with one lens (not attached) fit. I had my Nikon 24-120mm f4 lens in the padded area and still had room for my SB800 flash in the pouch that the flash arrived in. There was plenty of room for an over sized wallet, press ID, keys, spare batteries and a large bottle to keep hydrated. One end of the bag zippers to give more space if needed-50% more space to be exact. There are times when I am shooting my corporate or public relation jobs and I need a bag to hold an extra lens or 2 along with spare batteries and this bag is the perfect fit. A backpack bag gets in the way and a roller bag is out of the question for when I need to maneuver myself thru the crowds and the LowePro Passport Sling II is the perfect bag. The black color with red interior and small red stripes on the outside makes this bag fit in whether you are wearing jeans or a nice outfit. My photographer husband used it while shooting a corporate shoot wearing an Armani suit! On days when I don’t want to carry my full size pro gear, this is the perfect bag for my Micro four thirds system. This bag easily holds my Olympus EM-5 body with the 12-50mm kit lens attached as well as the 14-140 and 20mm pancake lens, along with the Olympus FL-300R Wireless Flash, wallet, batteries, water bottle and keys. The sling bag makes it super easy to grab your gear fast, whether you have time or are running to your next job and need to grab your camera fast.

Pink Live on the Today Show

She is DEFINITELY one of my favorites. Each time I see her, I love her more. Even the rain doesn't scare her off (MOST performers won't come out from under the tent-she didn't care.) LOVED seeing the little kids (approx. 6 years old) singing EVERY word to her songs-and she did too.

Hunter Mountain Lake house with my Sorority Sisters

this summer I spent a few days with my Sorority Sisters from College (Alpha Xi Delta from Rochester Institute of Technology) at a Lake House on Hunter Mountain in the Catskills. We reconnected back in 2007 and many of us get together at least once a year. For 20 something years, we had no contact with one another and to be back in each others lives (and to have met other sisters who were either older or younger than us and in the house at different times) is so special. Waking up to good friends and beautiful scenery is paradise.

Backstreet Boys live on Good Morning America-August 31, 2012

WOW! I arrived at Central Park at about 6:30 am and there was so much trash, tents, chairs, sleeping bags and other personal belongings all over the place. 2 park workers were cleaning it all up and making some comments along the way. All of a sudden, I heard the roar of the crowd as the Backstreet Boys took the stage for their soundcheck. It was so loud on the outside that ear plugs were needed. I was in shock-I had NO idea the Backstreet Boys were still so popular. Once the press was allowed in, there was no way were were going to get to our riser-the crowd was shoulder to shoulder--EASILY the BIGGEST crowd yet-bigger than Beyonce and Lady Gaga from last summer. We actually found a police officer to give us an escort to the press area! The Backstreet Boys were, surprisingly, very entertaining. I have photographed them before but this time they were much better. They mentioned that they are going out on tour and if you were a fan from long ago, you won't be disappointed.

Arthur Ashe Day at the US Open-August 25, 2012

Arthur Ashe Day at the US Open...I always love shooting sports and don't seem to get enough assignments these days so shooting tennis greats Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Andy Roddick was worth being in the hot sun all day/ Singers Carly Rae Jepsen, The Wanted and actor Matthew Morrison from "Glee" were also on hand

The Wanted Live on GOOD MORNING AMERICA" August 24, 2012

My friend, photographer Derek Storm, has been raving about this band for quite some time now. He has been photographing them everywhere and already has enough amazing images to make a great book. Needless to say, I was really looking forward to seeing and photographing them to understand what he was talking about. I expected a "boy" band, but they aren't boys-they are men, and they DO know how to perform and get the audience really involved. It is very apparent that they love their fans, and their fans love them. The OWN the stage.

Carly Rae Jepsen Live on TODAY Show 8.23.12
