great america!

Welcome to GREAT AMERICA!, a photo project of American positivity! America IS great, and does not need to be made great all over AGAIN. Yes, we have our problems. The struggles of minority groups like our LGBTQ community, our non-white and our non-Christian citizens, is very real and continues to this day. But America is…

red dancer has the blues

A New York City rooftop is always a great place to have a photoshoot. A New York City roof at night is even better! I don’t normally name my pieces, but “Red Dancer Has The Blues” just seemed to fit. It is an exploration of light, color, environment and emotion, and a statement about what…

supermoon

When I found out there was a once in a lifetime supermoon approaching, I knew I wanted to create something to celebrate the event. It had to be big and it had to be unique. After a little digging around and an ad on Craigslist, I found Venus Alers, aka Venus Pain. Fierce. Unique. Amazing. Bigger…

rockstar

I spend a lot of time lighting people and then trying to hide the lights so you can’t see them in the shot. Some of the time, I’ll light someone in such a way as to make them look like they aren’t lit. Other times, I want them to look “lit”. This is the life…

there will be life

In this series, I explore what it means to ignore our collapsing, natural environment while we chase money, sex and self-aggrandizing. Our unconscious addiction to “more” and the mistaken belief that we are somehow not connected to the world around us, are conspiring against the beautiful world we inhabit.  

yuhua

Yuhua Hamasaki is a New York performer and drag queen. With the help of Matt Lesser and Joe Spiteri, she and I collaborated to create this great look in a subway station in the Village. If you like what you see, consider donating to my crowdfunding campaign. Nobody pays me to create projects like this, and…

subway steampunk girl

I’ve been wanting to do something edgy and off the beaten path in the subways for a while. Something with a girl, a splash of color and a television. You know, something New York. When my assistant Joe and I scouted locations in Greenwich Village, we got off the train at the West 4th. station, looked…

freeman alley noir project

I found Freeman Alley earlier this year when a friend had his birthday at Freemans, a restaurant on New York’s Lower East Side that’s tucked away at the end of this little, graffiti-painted urban alley. I don’t do a lot of fashion photography, but I fell in love instantly and knew I wanted to create some beautiful and shady…

maison ullens trunk show

Thanks to Art Luyten at ARDT Creative, I was invited to photograph this Masion Ullens trunk show. Hosted on New York’s Upper East Side by Michelle Edelman, CEO of Traffic Creative Management, it was a private, catered affair to show off the latest creations from Myriam Ullens. I’m really starting to love fashion photography, but I’m not sure…
