A Weed is Not Simply a Weed

This weed represents the simplest things we ignore and cast as an eyesore despite its beauty. I’ve found that people are often treated the same. So, “a weed is not simply a weed,” etc.

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.

The Room Lit Up with Green Stars

I test concepts for future shoots during winter months. With this photo, I placed a lazer pointer in a beer coozy, taped the button down so that the light would stay on. The Cure played in the background. Atmospheric stuff. Looked like green stars. The only lights were from the lazer pointer, a couple of candles and the street lamps outside.
