If you’re looking to hire a wedding photographer, do yourself a favor and start way in advance of your wedding day. Book your photographer to shoot your wedding engagement pictures first. That gives you two advantages: 1) you get to know him or her, which will increase your comfort level during your wedding day, and…

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…

On our last trip to Los Angeles, I persuaded my old buddy and motorcyclist, Mike Haroutunian, to pose for me with his Suzuki SV1000S on the 4th. street bridge over the LA River.

lee rocker and deborah drucker

When bass guitarist Lee Rocker, formerly of The Stray Cats, contacted me and asked me to take some portraits of him and his wife, fashion designer Deborah Drucker, before this year’s Met Gala, it was hard not to be star-struck. I grew up listening to The Stray Cats, so needless to say I was pinching myself…
