white dancer

I love New York. Even in July. Where else can you be strolling home through Central Park from a gig shooting the NYC Triathlon and see a white lady in a white tutu on a white box? Only in New York. And where else would said white dancer wink at you and blow you a…

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…

Rain

Our world is dying. Our unconscious addiction to “more”, our thoughtless pursuit of money, our addiction to technology and progress, and the mistaken belief that we are somehow not connected to the natural world around us, all are conspiring to destroy the beautiful, God-given biosphere we inhabit. In this portrait in my series, I explore what it…

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…

allen childs, new york musician

  I’ve been wanting to create an epic, New York City photo look for a musician for a while now. So when Allen Childs expressed to me that he needed some photos for the website he was building, I proposed we try a rooftop with a view of the Manhattan skyline. No good art comes…

louis alloro

Louis Alloro needed a portrait of positivity to punch up his already positive presence in the world of positive psychology (sorry, I couldn’t resist) and to launch his new website. He wanted something that would speak of inspiration, strength and confidence. Since we were shooting in New York City in the early winter, I suggested…

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.  

christine

I met Christine Costello at CAPP, the certification course in applied positive psychology with Emiliya Zhivotovskaya. Christine is a power-woman who has changed her career in search of meaning and positivity. She asked me to do a Portrait of Positivity with her, so between her jetting across the country to bask in the California life, I…

emiliya zhivotovskaya

I don’t do a lot of commercial photography, so I was excited when I took this series of Emiliya Zhivotovskaya to help her promote her master class in Positive Psychology at the Flourishing Center. I took the photos keeping in mind we’d be placing the graphic behind her later on. The Flourishing Center is an awesome resource that teaches classes, hosts…
