I have been talking about things in the works for a while, and now it's time to deliver... half of it anyway. If you look up at the top, you may noticethe logo is a little different. But there's a lot more than that. Please, go check out the new and vastly improved Dennis Pike Photography I have been working on the new website for a while, longer than I initially intended, but that's how things go. New website, new logo, LOTS of new images to check out. So please, go check it out. http://www.dennispikephoto.com/

My life has been insane as of late. As you may, or may not know. My wife and I recently took a trip to Italy and Spain. And it was beyond amazing. While there, aside from the hundreds, possibly thousands of digital images. I shot a roll of B&W film. It was all shot on a Pentax K1000 with a 50mm f/2 lens. This was the camera I first started playing with as a child, trying to figure out what all the numbers dials and buttons did.
Anyway, I decided to post some scans of the film. As with my current editing schedule, I will not have to opportunity to get to the digital photos for god knows how long. These are straight scans, no Photoshop or Lightroom adjustments. Enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for a new announcement, that I'm really hoping to not push off much longer.

I have been a little M.I.A. recently, I know. There is a very good reason for this. A few, actually. First off, winter is a bit of a slow time for wedding photography in the North East. I don't know why, the weather has been nothing but wonderful the the North Jersey area. Who wouldn't want to get married in 2 feet of snow with the wind blowing 40 mph and a wind chill of 10? That being said, things kick into high gear in about two weeks and don't really stop for quite a while. This is going to be an awesome year.
Second. I have been working on some new things, they are not quite ready to be revealed as of yet, but suffice to say, Dennis Pike PHotography is going to look a whole lot different (and a whole lot better) very soon. There will be a large unveil soon. Don't have an exact date as of yet, but I'm hoping to have everything live before I leave for Italy and Spain (mid march) Stay tuned... I promise, it'll be worth it.

So fitting that I'm posting photographs from Musicfest 2010 in 2011. Similar to last year, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a press pass for the Union County Musicfest. I gotta say, I was most excited to see Soul Asylum this year, my sister had an unhealthy teenage obsession with Soul Asylum in the early to mid 90's... so needless to say I heard a lot of Soul Asylum when I was like 12. You're also going to see some images of The Bravery, OK GO, and Train. OK GO was awesome and let the photographers shoot for their entire set, rather than the standard 3 songs and get the hell out. So a big thank you to them. Anyway, enough of my ramblings... here are some of my images from the day. enjoy.

The day I shot Khadija and Ike's Engagement session was an odd one. First off, it was 60 degrees and sunny in November... awesome. Next, I generally avoid driving in NYC like it's the plague, so I strapped about 60 pounds worth of gear to my back and decided to rely on public transportation, which failed me at every turn. Then, a little frustrated, I met up with Khadija and Ike, and all my frustration melted away. They are two of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever want to meet, and on top of that, complete naturals in front of the camera. They also have a great story about how they met, and Ike had one of the smoothest proposal stories I've ever heard. "... the only thing he would change about her is her last name." We had a great time walking around The Botanical Gardens and then the quick walk over to Grand Army Plaza. I ended the day with a sore back, feet on fire, and a big smile on my face. I love my job.

Just a quick Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. That is all. And what is a photographer's blog post without a photo?
Here's a photo that has NOTHING to do with thanksgiving, but I've been wanting to share it. It's from Union County Music Fest 2010, and is the singer for the band "OK GO" you know, the guys with the awesome tread mill video.
