St. Baldrick’s Foundation

I am honored to have had the opportunity to photograph participants at Northport’s 2009 St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser again this year. If you haven’t heard of St. Baldrick’s, it is the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research.

I photographed over 150 ‘shavees’ both adults and kids, boys and girls.Congratulations to everyone who participated. Hope to see you again in 2010!

Preschool Shoots

This round of Candid Kid School Photos are complete. I had a wonderful time taking photographs of such adorable preschoolers. All of the staff and kids were such a pleasure to be around. While taking pictures I had the chance to do a bit of goofing around with the kids. We made cameras out of legos, played in the snow, sang and danced to Laurie Berkner and even did some yoga with Lauren from Bija Kids!

As parents give me permission, I’ll add more images to this post, but for now I leave you with one of my favorite shots!

A big thank you to everyone at Rory’s Room, Parker’s Place and Hudson’s House for a fun time!

MF Doom

Recently I was flown to Atlanta by Lex Records to photograph the artist MF Doom.

Whenever people as me about photographing hip-hop artist, they always expect some elaborate story or glamorous encounter, but that’s never the case. It’s normally the exact opposite. A boring tale of how I waited around in a midtown office for 2 hours while the artist I’m meant to be photographing was off buying jeans (true story). Nothing glamorous, until this.

This was an adventure involving 4 tiny airplanes, very little sleep, an electric car, lots of wrong turns, too many black and tans (for some, not me), a code word, hired police, surrendering my iPhone, delicious fish tacos, sitting in a pool of lime juice… the list goes on and on.

All of it very worth it. Here is a sneak peak at a few of the resulting images.
