black lives matter

  We’re lucky to live in America, it’s a great place with amazing people.  But despite all that’s good, there’s a lot of disturbing things going on right now.  Here’s my latest exploration of the political climate in America in 2020.  Coronavirus, crooked politicians, murder hornets, crashing markets, racism and political unrest.  Here, a lone…

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…

greek orthodox wedding

I love traditional weddings. Orthodox Greek, Jewish or Muslim, it doesn’t really matter. I love the culture and history that comes with them, and as a photographer, they usually present beautiful and unique opportunities. The bride and groom were married in their family church in Queens, NY. After the ceremony we did family portraits, and then…

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…

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.

“yes, i will!”

Ami and Becky were one of the most special couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Ami called me a few months ago. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend of many years. It was important to him that it take place in front of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge that connects Staten Island to…

claire & john

Over 48 years of love and devotion… Shot using my Nikon D7000 (a great camera for the nay-sayers out there) and my trusty 18-85mm f3.5-5.6 lens. Not really a portrait lens, but I wanted something wide enough to include Claire and John’s environment. Other gear included my Pocket Wizard TT-5s, SB-910 and Chimera Octa 2.
