toilet time

It’s been a while since I posted, and even longer since I’ve done a conceptual portrait.  This one is called “Toilet Time” because, well, who doesn’t need a bathroom at West 4th St from time to time? It’s a continuation of theme set in my steampunk girl watching tv which, up to this point, is…

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…

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…

nicole & keith

Nicole and Keith wanted their engagement photos taken in Hoboken, with the Manhattan skyline in the background, even though their wedding would eventually be on Long Island. On their big day, they had a traditional wedding in the family church. After the ceremony, and despite poor weather, we managed to get some fun portraits at…

connie

I got to shoot Connie’s headshots for her acting career. Getting to work with an artist like her to photograph the portraits that encapsulate her personality and energy is a real joy.

nyc subway test shoot

My buddy Joe and I went underground yesterday to scout the location of my next concept, an environmental portrait with a twist. We scouted the Broadway Lafayette station, as well as Union Square, the 14th. Street 1,2,3, L station, and settled on West 4th. Street. You can see Joe in the last shot facing the…

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…

new york actor

Matt needed actor headshots that were a little more main-stream than his usual Williamsburg hipster look because of his increasing work on shows like Boardwalk Empire. This portrait session was photographed on a rooftop on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

anya’s graduation

This nice New York family invited me into their lovely back yard to take portraits before they went to dinner to celebrate Anya’s graduation. Because they had to make their dinner reservation time was short. I threw my SB-800 on a 13′ stand behind them to light the greenery on the wall and to give…
