Back to Blogging!

Why hello, readers. Happy fall!

My little old blog has been quiet lately, this I know. It’s been a complete whirlwind these past few weeks (Eep, are we going on months?!), but I’m back and excited to be bringing you lots and lots of weddings and shoots to the blog over the next few posts!

For now… here is a tiny peek at what I’ve been up to.


24 Hours

I really, really, really love my job. Some days, when I’m on my way to ‘work’ I get the urge to pinch myself, because it’s hard to believe that I actually get to do what I love to do for a living. There many things I love about being a photographer, but the best things of all are the people I get to meet and the places I get to go.

I’m also luck to be a photographer in New York, because I have an endless supply of amazing ‘backdrops’ and I try to never take that for granted. I also think its amazing that I get to interact with so many wonderful people! From musicians, to new parents, to couples in love, to aspiring actors, to hysterical pre-schoolers… how could I ever get bored?

I’ve been super busy lately, so blogging is going to have to take a bit of a back-seat. But here is a peak at all the fun shoots I had in the last 24 hours (minus all the film I’ve been shooting, which I hope to post soon!).

HHC Digital – Issue 4

Download this issue of HHC Digital here —> It’s a great read and you can see more from my photoshoot with Fresh Daily (check out takes out below!).


Andrew Thompson

This year has been such an exciting photography year for me. It’s been nonstop-busy, which is definitely how I like it to be. I’m looking forward to the projects this summer will bring.

I’m pretty much booked solid for the month of June, which includes a trip to Jamaica from the 28th to the 2nd to photograph a destination wedding (complete with a trash the dress session!). I promise to post lots of pictures while I’m there.

As mentioned in my last post, I recently did a shoot with Andrew Thompson in my favorite Brooklyn bar, Boat. I’ve had this idea in my head for a shoot for some time and I knew Andrew would be up for it! Enjoy…

My favorite shot of the day:

DUMBO Portrait Shoot – Charlie

I’ve been working tons this weekend (…sigh), but before I head off to Buttermilk to have a Sunday night drink and try to breathe before the week starts up, I wanted to post a few images from Friday’s photo shoot.

It was so wonderful to have an outdoor shoot on such a beautiful day – a nice change of pace. What made it even more wonderful was my subject, Charlie. Charlie was a joy to be around and a pleasure to photograph. She has so much energy and personality and the camera loves her (whether she agrees with that statement or not, it’s the truth!).

Here are a few favorites. When I get a chance to play a bit, I’ll post a few more.

Enjoy and thanks for a great shoot, Charlie!


HHC Digital

As I posted a few blog entries ago, I recently was flown to Atlanta to do some press photos of and shoot a magazine cover featuring DOOM.

Well the magazine is now available for download! Check it out by clicking here


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.


Charles Hamilton

After a shoot for Hip Hop Connection, I’m always itching to put a couple of images on my blog or add the photos to my web gallery. Obviously I can’t because I’m to wait till the magazine goes to print. I got the idea though (can’t believe I haven’t thought of it before!) to post screenshots from the magazine’s website when one of my photos is featured on there as well. Here is I took for a feature on Charles Hamilton. It was taken in Harlem, on election day, with the lensbaby.

Foundation Magazine Release Party

Last night I attended Foundation Magazine’s 9th Issue Release Party at Don Hill’s downtown. It was a great time. Here are a few photos of the night’s performances.


Gotta love perfect placement of a mirror!
A favorite of mine.
