a twisted lens

Doing what you love for a living is awesome. I count my blessings that I get hired to make [hopefully] beautiful and intriguing images. But it can be a challenge to create them day after day, rain or shine, through good times and bad. But my clients pay me good money to show up on…

awesome brooklyn headshots

Here’s a killer portrait session I did a little while back in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. After exploring the waterfront neighborhood a bit, we finished up photography on the roof of my client’s building for a classic NYC view. Taking pictures in New York is awesome because there are so many textures and shades to work with….

a sweet bat mitzvah

Here’s a wonderful, sweet-hearted bat mitzvah I had the pleasure of shooting with Michael Jurick at the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan. Compared to some of the amazing parties we shoot, this one was relatively low-key, with an intimacy that made it stand out. A small family portrait session, photos of the ha-motzi, and fun pictures…

a baby boy

I absolutely love shooting family photos of a couple who’s wedding I shot. So when these guys called me up and asked me to take pictures of them with their baby boy, I was thrilled! To add to the fun, they told both their mothers they wanted to take them to a nice restaurant for…

long island wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting this Long Island couple’s wedding earlier this year. One of the things I loved about shooting them was the abandon with which they allowed their love for each other to show during the photo sessions. All brides and grooms are in love, but occasionally it’s hard for it to…

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…

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…

execution rocks lighthouse

I’m fairly new to kayaking, and have so far enjoyed a few afternoon paddles in the Hudson River near our home and in Goose Pond near Lee, MA, where we vacation in the summer.  The more I do it, the more I enjoy the challenges it offers.  It’s a great way to get alone time…

nyc bat mitzvah

Photographing a family event like a bar or bat mitzvah always gets me pumped, especially in this day and age of negatively charged news. I had the pleasure of shooting this young woman’s coming of age celebration last year, and the feeling still sticks with me when I look at the pictures. We started her…

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…
