Meanwhile at the Gramercy Park Hotel

I worked with Olga Sorokina of IRFE, Paris for 4 days back in April. Together we created a lot of fun photographs. This shoot was a meeting of the minds since both of us shared a lot of the same creative ideas.

This consumed my life for nearly 72 hours straight

My new portfolio.

Only 31 photos to keep it short, sweet and expresses a full range of event, portraiture and fashion photography.

I’m New York City based. If anyone needs an event photographed in a unique and bold style, please feel free to review the new portfolio to see if I’m the right fit for you. If I am, contact me! I’m still booking for the summer.

Model at Gramercy Park Hotel

We had finished shooting for the day and went back to the hotel to cool down and have a drink. She and her assistant had a soda and I a mojito. While we relaxed and enjoyed our beverages, I made this portrait of her. Olga Sorokina is easily one of the most talented models I’ve worked with and I hope we get to work together again.

Cigarette on Leopard Print

This was taken at a newish spot in Brooklyn called Bossa Nova — easily one of my new favorite places in New York. The venue permeated with a cool, relaxed vibe and the house and techno was mixed by top quality DJs. It’s hard to find a place like this in New York since Manhattan’s real estate has made it nearly impossible for a place like this to flourish but, as usual, Brooklyn tops Manhattan (and this is coming from a guy who lives in Astoria, Queens).

I love the 20s

Here are a pair of photographs I made with Olga Sorokina, the creative director and face of IRFE. I’ve always enjoyed 1920s fashion and creative ideas born from the Surrealist writers and artists of the era so when the two of us collaborated on these portraits, I was mighty happy.

Tattoos with Friends

This was about a month back. I was covering an event for UrbanDaddy at Capitale. My friend and I were upstairs in the VIP area where a tattoo artist from Black Banditz had set up to ink revelers up with free tattoos. To get into the mix, we each picked from their selection of free work and got some new ink. This sequence of photos features this artist working on my friend’s forearm.

Timo Weiland After Party at Le Baron

Chinatown seems to be the growing hot spot these days as I’ve noticed my work continues to take me there. There’s a lot to like about it. It has the sleaze and grit of the Lower East Side from 10-15 years ago and lots of places to easily fit in a speakeasy or venue. I had never been to Le Baron before this night but it got an A+ in my book.

The band that is playing is called Cable.

New York Fashion Week Closer at Hudson Commons

The last two weeks have been completely silent on this blog and that’s because it’s been a whirlwind of blurry  hands, teething children (not mine), liquor store sneak attacks, travel and photo shoots.

As I continue to post photos from  New York Fashion Week, you’ll notice that they won’t be in order. The reasons is because I prematurely posted photos.
