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.

Elana Katz’s Performance at Lumen

I was totally floored by this beautiful piece performed by performance artist Elana Katz. The photos and performance from this shoot will go on to inspire the fashion design team behind Emporio dei Giovani.

A photo of NYC’s new middle finger as seen from the James Hotel

Last night, I went to photographer, Ben Watts’ WattsUp wine party at Jimmy (the rooftop of the James Hotel). Besides being treated to free wine, cool people and an astounding view of Lower Manhattan, I couldn’t help to notice this huge middle finger sticking up from the bedrock of New York City. I think I’m in love with all 1776 feet of this building. You will never catch up working or going up there but it sure is pretty to look at and it goes well with wine, revelers and stormy clouds.

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).

Street Fashion Shoot at the Flat Iron District

While working this shoot, a police officer stood nearby, watching the model; watching me. I thought he was going to ask for paperwork although I knew it was fine. He instead asked about the equipment I was using since he was an amateur photographer. I explained the light setup and what kind of look we were going for. He nodded and walked away.

Good night, Astoria

It’s been a long and productive day. And with that, I bid you goodnight, Astoria. Time to chill the eff out.

We’re halfway to Halloween

I’m not in a rush to jump 6 months to Halloween. I was coincidentally going through some Halloween photos yesterday when I found out that we were halfway to Halloween. I figured that it was a decent time to publish some photos that haven’t yet been posted on this blog.

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.

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.

Photographed for UrbanDaddy.

The Union Square Area

I was running errands today, picking up ink for my photo printer and cool little packaging material to mail out to new clients. As always, I brought my camera along for the ride. I don’t always find something inspiring to photograph but when I stop my speed walking and look up, I’m always stunned by the beauty of architecture. I miss the trees of the countryside but on a beautiful, blue day like today in New York City, I’m more than happy to be here.
