If you don’t love the most loved Philly page on Facebook…you should. Old Images of Philadelphia is chock full of amazing historic images of Philadelphia. My personal favorites are the before and afters, but…I digress. The reason for my plug of Old Images of Philadelphia is that it inspired me to get out and take portraits at one of the best public markets in the U.S., The Reading Terminal Market. The energy, atmosphere, and variety of people found daily make […]
What do you do when you have a free Wednesday in mid December? You go down to the AC boardwalk to take some pictures, of course. I had some lively conversation with rolling chair attendants, watched some skater kids do some skater tricks, checked out the new Revel Casino, and had the chance to play some poker.(My wife suspects that this was my main motivation for the trip) A very enjoyable day indeed.

Three of my photos were selected for ASMP’s upcoming Focus Philadelphia book, Unseen Philadelphia. Two of the photos were taken at a basketball court called “The Pit” at 51st and Funston in West Philadelphia and the top photo was taken at Aramingo Square Park in Kensington.
I recently worked with Nick Groch of Blackney Hayes Architects for some location business portraits. Nick was great and the Blackney Hayes offices were a perfect backdrop to these portraits.
I love beer and photography, so a beer inspired project was right up my alley. BeerAdvocate magazine contacted me in July to photograph McKenzie Brew House brewer Ryan Michaels. Ryan has been receiving national recognition for his Belgian style beers. Most notably, his Saison Vautour, which is a three time gold medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO. For the BeerAdvocate story, I photographed Ryan in two McKenzie Brew House locations, Chadds Ford and Devon. […]

These photos were taken at the “The Pit” All Star game in West Philly. Point 3 basketball is the sponsor of this court and hired me to take photos of the game. There was a live hip hop show, slam dunk contest, and about 500 fans. These guys are good!
I had the great pleasure to shoot with Publicity expert Melissa Cassera for her new set of ads. The location for the images was a rented out floor of an office building and the direction was mockumentary style with a quirky overtone. Melissa sent me a ton of inspirational images and we collaborated from there. The two subjects, Melissa and Nick, are both actors. In these ads, Nick plays an A-list star who hogs the spot light while Melissa is continually […]

Some friends of ours just had a baby and they asked me to take some family photos. So of course, I obliged. They have a very cute baby and a super cool dog. I’m starting to get a lot of work like this and I kinda like it. I made a new site for consumer work. http://www.hurstphoto.com/phillyweddingphotos.html Here are couple of the pix.
Heather starts the day off with a little light reading. She then moves right into her research (or quite possibly Facebook). Avett barges in and says, “Look at me, I’m cute! You should play with me!” So, of course, Heather plays with him. She plays so much that she makes herself sleepy. She knows that there’s only one thing to do to wake herself up…….Strike a pose! Then she says, “What else do you want from a busy tutor!” […]
