I was contacted by the photo editor at "Scholastic News" asking to use my "Wooden Shallop" photograph in one of their online features called "Words to Know". In the feature, vocabulary words are pulled from the print issue and shown with a definition and an image for illiustration.
For their November/December 2017 issue, the topic is Pilgrims & Wampanoag. They would like to illustrate the word "Shallop" using my photo of a wooden shallop.
The "Words to Know" accompanies a digital version of the print magazine online. The feature is only viewable to teacher subscribers via a password-protected web site.
I'm thrilled that my photograph was chosen for this feature and educational purposes.

I was honored to have my photograph chosen as the wedding guestbook for my niece's wedding. Three months before the wedding, the bride and groom ordered an 18.5 x 24" print and two mattes (antique white and photo gray) from Fine Art America/Pixels. With matting, the overall size was 25.5 x 31".
Having seen it in person, I was impressed with the quality of the print and matting.
The wedding was August 20, 2016 at the Plymouth Yacht Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts. An outdoor ceremony, Mayflower II, docked at state pier, became the backdrop of many of the wedding photographs. The photograph chosen by the bride and groom matched the setting of the wedding.
I took this photograph one August morning when the fog was lifting, and the sun was breaking through the clouds. I titled it, "The Sun and the Fog".
The photograph was framed by Golden Gull Studios in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The wedding was a beautiful memorable occasion.

The premiere issue of the annual Plymouth Magazine was unveiled on May 16, 2016 at a reception at the White Cliffs Country Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The new magazine is published by Lighthouse Media Solutions.
I was honored to have been asked to be a part of this celebration and have a few of my photographs featured in this first issue.
I was amongst three Plymouth-based photographers chosen for the feature, "A Sense of Place".
My FAA/Pixels website is listed beneath the Town Pier scene,

In the fall of 2015, the Old Colony Memorial, our Town newspaper in Plymouth, Massachusetts, offered the opportunity to local artists to showcase their work in their Saturday editions. The feature is called "Photographer Spotlight Of The Week".
Much to my delight, I was the photographer featured in the December 12th newspaper. As it turns out, that day is also my birthday. It was a wonderful surprise on my special day.
Below is the online edition. The are eight photographs. The one you click on will be the larger one.

Two weeks ago, I was contacted by writer/director Chris Pinto of Adullam Films asking me if his company could use my image of the statue of William Bradford as part of a cover design for a video they were producing called, "The True Christian History of America". Chris assured me they had a very heroic view of William Bradford, so my image would be presented in a favorable manner.
After a week of correspondence, we came to an agreement to allow Adullam Films to use my image and replicate it as many times needed for copies of the cover.
Copy and paste below to see the DVD design: They colorized it, and I am very impressed with their cover design.
