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…

black and white maternity

I really feel like art and life are inseparable.  Try as we might, we humans can’t not be creative.  I think it’s a fallacy that “art” and “creativity” are often considered to be only in the possession of people like me who choose to make a vocation, or an avocation, out of their craft.  Creativity…

epic kayak adventure

Ever since I bought my first kayak (a Wilderness Systems Focus 15), I’ve been planning an epic kayak adventure.  But, between family, photography and you know, life and things, I been a little busy.  If I don’t schedule it into the shared calendar my wife and I have months in advance, it’ll never happen.  So…

b’nai yisrael bat mitzvah

Here’s a beautiful young woman celebrating her coming of age at Congregation B’nai Yisrael in Armonk, NY. After family portraits and the service, there was a killer party at the Willow Ridge Country Club, complete with an appearance from the cryo robot and a piano performance by the bat mitzvah herself. A big shout out…

gotham hall bar mitzvah

Here’s another amazing bar mitzvah I was honored to photograph along side Michael Jurick at Gotham Hall in New York City. The portrait, detail, and party photography look amazing, thanks largely to the creativity and artistry from events companies like Gourmet Advisory and Total Entertainment. Due to it’s nature, a bar mitzvah is always inspiring…

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….

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…

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…

temple emanu-el bat mitzvah

Here is yet another amazing bat mitzvah that I had the pleasure of shooting with Michael Jurick. New York City’s Temple Emanu-El is vast, beautiful and comforting, and I was honored that Michael asked me to shoot the family portraits there. It’s rare that a synagogue allows photography during an actual ceremony! Once the havdalah was concluded, we…

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…
