A few weeks ago, my friend April contacted me to take some photos for her to enter a contest. I contacted my other friend Sam to see if she would model. These are a few of the photos!
I try to stay positive as much as I can, even more, when I hear bad news I try not to spread sadness or negativity… But I would like to pay my respects, reflect, and get this off my chest. Yesterday, I received the news that a good friend of mine has passed away. From the late night talks, to playing video games, talking shop, playing pool and darts, you had much the same mindset as I do – to stay positive, have fun, and make people smile. I hope you knew how much you touched and impacted the lives of those around you. You captured countless memories all around the city, and so many of them have been digitally recounted over the past 24 hours.
I remember the first time wet met, St. Patrick’s Day 2015. I was out with my “ImUpForWhatever.com” sign for the first time ever and we were both armed with our cameras. The photo on the left is the first picture I took after meeting you, we were comparing the zoom on our lenses on the back deck at O’Calls. We were able to immediately connect, have conversation, and begin our friendship.
The photo on the right is us one year later, St. Patrick’s Day 2016, standing at the same spot we met.
I remember our conversation from somewhere around the middle of June, we sat in my car until the sun came up, talking about dreams, goals, girls, life.
I wish I could find the last picture that you took of us, I never thought it would be the final one.
I don’t know what else to say, I did not expect to hear this. You are already missed, Big Robert.
My camera’s name is Niki…Her and I together make sweet love…lol…Hope to make this my fulltime permanent career. Photography is my passion. I keep pushing to be better than my last work. I want to thank everyone who’s got love for my work. I truly appreciate all of you! It’s hard work but I really enjoy doing it. A picture is worth way more than 1,000 words.

In an effort to bring more support to the Hamlin Dog Control / Animal Shelter, an event with bands, food, vendors, petting zoo and more was organized this past Saturday. The temperature was high, and the wind was blowing, but it was a fun and successful time. Here are some photos (click to enlarge):
A few Saturdays back I was invited to take a ride with Q Tours for a special kickoff Brewery Tour, just one of the many events they will be organizing this summer.
The first stop we made was to the Rorhbach Brewing Company where we were greeted by members of the staff, and each of us selected 4 of their beers that we would like to sample. Once our orders were in, we the doors to the tasting room were opened. The space they have for tasting there is amazing. A simple, but country elegant room with few decorations, and a very warm feel to it with plenty of room to have a seat. In just a few minutes we were enjoying our first samples of the day. They even have hand tossed pizza made on site.
Next up, the Genesee Brew House.
When you enter the Genesee Brew House, it is set up like a museum of history. Photographs, posters, coasters, and more, all detailing the history of one of Rochester’s iconic breweries. There is a guided tour down a short flight of stairs that you can hear a bit about the process and get up close to a few of the tanks used for fermentation.
The third stop we made was Swiftwater Brewing, a very clean and modern feeling establishment. First up, we ordered our samples of course, and a few minutes later, trays of snacks were brought out to us as well. Cheeses, crackers, nuts, breads, and a delicious paste to spread. Swiftwater knows how to treat their tours very well.
Our final stop was to the The Lost Borough Brewery. Another bright, open space, and along with the tastings, we were able to play Jenga. Let me tell you, that is not an easy game after sampling at 3 breweries before hand. Shout out to the staff for putting up with our shenanigans (balancing one of our glasses on top of the tower before it came crashing down).
I had an incredible amount of fun during the tour, meeting new people, sampling all types of beer that Rochester has to offer, and all of it thanks to Q Tours. The service they offer just keeps getting better and better. It’s not just your typical limo service that picks you up and drops you off. Q Tours is bringing something new to the table, they really make you feel like family. The drivers are top notch, trained in security, and are awesome to hang out with. Whether you are looking to fill the limo with friends and family of your own, or you want a seat for you and a friend, or even want to ride solo and make some new friends, the Q Tours summer series is a great place to be.
And if I haven’t said enough about how awesome the service is, anytime you go with Q Tours for a concert, they include water, food, Kan Jam, Ladder Ball, and Apples to Apples to keep you entertained for the tailgaiting portion of the day! Trust me, you won’t find better transportation this summer.
