Halloween Character at Local Haunted House

This was photographed for Nightmare: KILLERS2 haunted house. If you live in NYC, check this out. If you don’t live in NYC, get here and check it out. It’s an amazing haunt.

This is one half of the Moors Murderers in her natural habitat.

This is from a shoot I did with Dina Ivas in Long Island City. I wanted the photo to have a slightly surreal look while maintaining focus on the musculature and pose of this yoga instructor. Follow my posts on Facebook for discounts and info about photo sessions.

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.

DIGITATA Photographers Speak Out On The Digital Takeover


Here’s an article written by Michael Stahl for Musee Magazine. In it he interviews Tony Vaccaro, Brandon Stanton (of Humans of New York), Jesse Winter and myself. I was honored to be included in this article featuring such heavy weights.

According to, over two million photos are uploaded to Facebook every twenty minutes.  Tumblr boasts nearly 67 million blogs that are predominantly photo-based.  ITunes says, “50 million users love Instagram!”  Yahoo! advertises that Flickrprovides a forum for 51 million people to post photos, while, the most ironic figure comes from Hipstamatic CEO Lucas Buick, who told Fast Company that there are 27 million users of his product, which is designed to give a hand-developed, classic tonality to a mega-pixeled pic.  Says Winter of Hipstamatic: “Just add water and it’s beautiful.”

While talking across his all-time favorite photo, a shot from an airplane of German-dug trenches ensconced in a World War I battlefield, which is likely the only print of it in the world, Detres says that he would definitely agree with the notion that digital photography is diluting the art.  More SLR camera sales and smartphone apps surely stir more competition for paid work and website hits, but Detres isn’t terribly worried, saying that, regardless of the number of participants in the photography community, there’s still a weeding out process and that “the great ones have that fine art, film mentality, even if they weren’t trained in film.”
