Pennsylvania Wedding

I had the extreme pleasure of assisting Tammy Wolfe of London- Wolfe Photography in Altoona, PA yesterday with a wedding. Tammy and I have been friends for a few years and I was very excited to work with her. Her style is very fresh and original. We had a great couple, Ashley and Corey, and it was awesome weather, too! 65 DEGREES! We both had a great time, pushing each other. Here are a few of the images we created. If you are getting married or need portraits in the Altoona area, please check out her website,

First, for you FACEBOOK users, we now have a fan page! Feel free to friend Alfred Gordon, and become a fan of Alfred Gordon Photography! I try to update the page at least once a week!

Now, I wanted to post a shot we did about a week or so ago. I was asked to photograph the Seniors on the BCS football team for their cover on the football programs. I liked my version so much I wanted to show you. This is different than the one for the cover, but this one was my vision. It took a lot of lights, a smoke machine, and some moms to help, but it turned out great! GO BCS!!

We are honored to be the studio chosen to photograph Bradenton Christian School's Seniors again this year. We have spent the last two days doing their yearbook photos in our studio. It has been fun meeting each senior and hearing about their goals for the future. We will be photographing many of these students again soon, with a more in depth session. We love to get these guys outdoors at the beach, or downtown Bradenton in the alleys, or anywhere they want to go. We are up for anything!
Here are a few of this year's BCS seniors!

Photographic Adventures In the Garage

Hello everyone, this blog is brought to you by Billy D. Al and myself had quite the photographic adventure today. Here is how the story goes. About two weeks ago Al and I both had to take our vehicles in to get work done on them, and I suggested to Al to try out my car expert. So he did. While sitting in the waiting room I dreamed up a shot in my mind. So we asked Doug if he would be willing to do a photo shoot in his garage. He gladly accepted. So this morning around 8 am Al and I headed Over to Doug's Service Center. We piled 4 cars and 6 lights and one of Doug's workers to accomplish one shot. We used four power lights along with two q-flashes. Needless to say we were throwing around a lot of power. Doug was very patient with us, as we tested our lighting. We had a great time with Doug and I hope we were able to capture his love for automobiles, trucks, and anything else with an engine!. We were treated as family just like all his customers. If you ever need anything car or truck related be sure to check out Doug's Service Center, 4411 30th Street West, 755-0158

Weve been busy!!

I APOLOGIZE again for not blogging more. There has been so much happening in the last few months. Speaking trips to Phoenix and Las Vegas, weddings , seniors, you name it!

One of our proudest moments happened in JANUARY. Billy Dzwonkowski, one of our staff, entered the Manatee County Fair. As you may know, one of Bradenton's favorite people and great photographer, Paul Bartley, passed away late last year. The Fair decided to add an award to the photography contest in honor of Paul. The category for this award was the best photograph of people. Billy was the recipient this year! We are all so proud. His photograph of Kelly Jo Starcher, one of our seniors, was awesome. Billy shows an immense amount of talent!

Photos from Phoenix and Las Vegas soon!

There are some honors that few people ever get to enjoy. On this coming Tuesday evening, I get to experience such an honor. My great friend and talented photographer, Rick Delorme, will be receiving his Master of Photography Degree from the Professional Photographers of America. He asked me to be on stage with him as his sponsor. Sadly, the person Rick really wanted to be on stage with him has passed on. Our mentor and close friend, Monte Zucker, was to be his sponsor. Monte was taken away from us by cancer a little while ago. Believe me, I am overwhelmed to be his second choice. Rick and I met many years ago at one of Monte's classes. I hope to post a photo of Rick and I on the blog when I return. Rick (top photo) has worked tirelessly to receive this, and he truly deserves this recognition. Rick has a studio in Michigan (Brrrrrr) but he travels down here quite often. Here is a sample of his wonderful images. Check out his web site..

On the way to Phoenix soon, see ya when I return!
