Way back in 2011 I was given access to Pennhurst Asylum for a day to shoot a video for the Pennhurst Asylum Haunted house.  While I was there I shot a lot of B-roll, some of which I used for the Haunt video but a lot I didn't get to.  So I decided to put together this short video featuring all the footage and some of the photos that were shot.  Enjoy! ...

I had the honor of going to a haunt I've always wanted to see for 15 years! The House of Shock in New Orleans has been one of those infamous haunts that has had more than its share of controversy due to its themes of Satanism.  Its also one of those haunts that's just as well known for its amazing sets and awesome stage show with pyrotechnics!  It was a real honor to get asked to come out and shoot some photos this year, their final year, for use on their site and promotions.  I have to say the show lives up to its legend! When you first visit the House of Shock you're treated to a stage show that is mind blowing! Its something out of the most intense heavy metal concert ever seen.  Lord Belial, the satanic priest comes out and talks about how the Antichrist was born at...

If you’re a HDSLR fan then you probably have heard about the latest from Canon, the EOS 5D Mark III. If not then Let me bring you up to speed quickly. In 2008 Canon released the still amazing 5D Mark II, the first Canon Camera with HD Video capability. Canon intended the camera to be used by photogs who needed to get video content while working on their projects for new media. But much to everyone’s surprise Indie filmmakers started picking up the camera and shooting movies with it. The 5D Mark II was responsible for a boom in HD video filmmakers who could now buy a reletively cheap camera and start making pictures. Since then the camera has been used not only in independent films and countless online videos but also in major Hollywood productions and TV shows. Most recently the camera was used for the vast majority of filming on the Navy Seals movie “Act of Valor”.

If you were at the Transworld Haunted House Show this weekend then you got a look at the latest issue of Haunted Attraction Magazine and its awesome new look! But best of all it features a photo spread of Pennhurst photographed by Rogues Hollow Productions! The cover photo is my favorite and one I use in the design of this site as well as my 2012 Promotional flyers I handed out at the show. I think it really compliments the new look of the HA magazine and I'm proud that my photos are gracing the cover for the introduction of the new HA logo and layout! Big Thanks to Randy Bates and Richard Chakajian of Pennhurst and to John Kennedy, owner of Haunted Attraction Magazine. If you don't already have a subscription to HA then get one now!

In my continuing excursions into HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography, I recently took photos of a new restaurant open now in Bellefontaine OH, called Six Hundred Downtown. I'm very happy with how these have turned out so far. I've noticed some HDR photos that take the contrast to a ridiculous level by having the edges of object POP and I'm not a fan. It makes the image look far too busy and takes away from the actual beauty of the subject matter. I've tried to keep from doing that in my photos and so far I think I've been pretty successful. Check out my full gallery of photos from Six Hundred Downtown and let me know what you think: CLICK HERE TO VIEW PHOTOS...

Thursday Night, October 27th we had our Trick or Treat night in Kenton. I spent the day putting the final touches on the yard, setting up music, and fog as well as characters in the yard. The evening started with a short downpour of rain that lasted maybe 10 minutes but we still ended up with a pretty good turn out. As I do every year I spent 2 or 3 hours after taking photos and video for the site. It was wet and cold and I was down in the mud taking photos so it came as little surprise when I got hit with a bug that saw me trying to vomit up the lining of my Stomach on Friday and into early Saturday. Today I'm finally feeling 100% again and its time to post all the new HDR photos from the Thursday. ...

Tonight was the night and we gave it our all! The final yard display was looking pretty kick ass as you can see from the photo. Unfortunately I couldn't do the fog this year like I wanted. It was insanely windy all day and I would have been an exercise in futility to try to get my yard to fill with fog. Oh well, maybe next year. My new fence turned out to be a great addition to the yard. it kept the kids from walking through the display and it gave the house a spooky finishing touch I've never had before. Now I think I'll leave it up to spring and hope for it to rust a bit. The bad news was we had less than half as many kids come this year. I'm not sure why, perhaps its...

So this past weekend I finally made it out to the Terrorfest in Columbus. I spent most of the day there getting photos and video for the 2011 website which I start working on in November. I was a very big fan of this haunt last year since it stuck so close the storyline that we came up with for it about a serial killer in the brewery district of Columbus. For 2010 they redid the entire Brewery Butcher attraction in 3D which I was very skeptical about. I've never been a big fan of 3D attractions for the same reason I'm not a fan of 3D movies, they seem gimmicky and distracting. However I wasn't expecting to find the best 3D attraction I've ever seen! The rooms were simply amazing and very dimensional. The murals blew me away and the actors managed...
