An oldie with Sam, Jessie and Francis

Right around this time last year was incredibly hard for me. I was still going through the difficulties of adjusting to life after my job ending, trying to make a splash as a photographer, my marriage had recently ended and I was getting ready to move across the country from NYC to Las Vegas. Needless to say, August and September of 2009 are a bit of a blur… I was recently reminded on Facebook that the team I shot with for a little trade shoot... Read More

Papa John

When I used to live in Long Island City, there was a homeless man who lived in his car directly outside my apartment. He was 73 years old at the time and lived in the neighborhood all his life. He went by the name “Papa John.” John spent his days and evenings drinking to pass the time. If you walked by him on the street he would most likely wave, smile and say hello. He was a really kind person and aside from talking too much and... Read More

Battery Park City or Outer Space?

So… here are some photos that I took a while back when doing a little NYC exploration with Matt from Sexy Photo Trip. We were looking around for things to shoot and found these light tower/entry gates to the Battery Park City boardwalk. They had really bright lights and from afar look fairly uninteresting. But when I got closer, things got really interesting as you can see here. ... Read More

Going way back…

So, my computer took a big Cleveland steamer on me last week so I had to build a new workstation. I am all suited up with a Core i7-based machine now and it screams, so I guess after all that stress it wasn’t so bad in the end as I am happy with the computer I am “stuck” with now. As I have been getting things organized with the new machine, I took some time to get reacquainted with some of my oldest work, going through a bunch of... Read More

The Old Country

On Thursday evening at 11:59 PM. I boarded a plan to San Juan, Puerto Rico with my wife Mariola. I haven’t been back to the “Old Country” in nearly 15 years. We were both sorely in need of a vacation and going to a beach paradise in March to escape the harsh temperatures of Winter in NYC seemed like a great bet… plus there’s a casino in the resort we are staying at and I am always up for having my ass handed to me in... Read More

Sharon TK, Goksun and my Jessie

So… I know it’s been a while. I have been dealing with a lot of things that have kept me from mustering the concentration to put a blog post together. But, here it is… Jessie Callan came up from Philly for a weekend in the big city with her mom on Friday, and we managed to work in a shoot while she was here. I am lucky I get to work with really talented people and Jessie is a super talented and creative makeup artist… look... Read More
