New Website is Live!

Dear Friends, Since the Library Company lecture early in March I have fallen off the radar, but for good reason! I am excited to announce my revamped website, michaelfroio.com which just went live! I have been considering a change in service  for a while and finally began the process a few weeks ago after seeing the huge improvement in image quality and functionality that my new host, Livebooks offers. On the new site you will find more and larger images for the Main Line Project which was in desperate need of an update, including text on each of the Regions/ Divisions covered in the three portfolios. In addition to the Main Line Project you will find the Relic and Watershed Portfolios have been freshened up and reorganized for improved navigation. Of course the site still maintains a link to the blog, sections for news and updates, contact info and social media. I hope you take the time to check out the site, please feel free to email me with any feedback. I should note that the new site utilizes a Flash based template, and IOs users will be pointed to an HTML mirror site which looks and functions much like the main site.

Again the website address is www.michaelfroio.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,

Michael Froio

While I have been posting regularly, the last few weeks I got a little bogged down, but for good reason. Since I will be attending the Center for Railroad Photography and Art Conference this weekend in Lake Forest, Illinois I decided at the last minute to build new portfolios for the occasion including a selection of images from recent work with Amtrak. I'm looking forward to being a part of the event and the chance to show some of the new work, there is a lot of it! I will return in a few weeks to continue our tour of the Harrisburg Terminal and then begin to move east on the former Philadelphia Division of the PRR. Stay tuned for more exciting news and posts as I continue plugging away at a very productive year, and thanks for your continued interest and support!
