17 Sep Woodstock New York Professional Portrait | Paul Covello
So lets go back to the fall of 2005. Lucia and I were looking at a house in Woodstock, a house that we wanted to buy. Having never bought a home before we surrounded ourselves with people that came highly recommended in their respective fields to assist. One of these pros was the house inspector, he came via a friend that had used his services several times, and she was very vocal in her suggestion that I really listen to him as he was very thorough, and after getting his blessing you had a good home. He had this Italian name so immediately I felt a kinship. Anyway he did his inspection and gave us a report telling us that our beloved money pit was a good house and we could go ahead based on his findings. We did buy the house, and his report was spot on. And that was the last of Domenic I heard of, not being in the home business myself, our paths have never crossed.
Fast forward to last week. Paul calls me up and tells me he was in need of some press photos he could use when he got such requests. He opened the Hotel Dylan in Woodstock a month or two ago and Nan Tepper who is doing his web site recommended me. Thank You Nan.
So Lucia and I met him at the hotel, I really wanted to do it with the property and make some nice environmental portraits.
Paul is good looking guy and was remarkably comfortable in front of the camera, we got several really nice images. During the shoot I asked what brought him up here. He replied that he was from the area and he told us of his family, and one of the things he mentioned was my father is a home inspector. Hmmm. That got my gears spinning, so I asked Paul if his father was Domenic, to which he answered yes. Thereby reminding again and again how small the world is.
Anyway it was a pleasure working with Paul and his pictures look great.
