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.

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).

Mardi Gras in NYC at Sugarfreak

Since we couldn’t go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans this year, we celebrated at Sugarfreak — the most authentic New Orleans-inspired place I’ve found in New York. Good times.

Ninth Ward (bar), NYC

Aryn and I visited one of my new favorite NYC bars called Ninth Ward. It bills itself as being a New Orleans style bar. I kinda see it. There’s voodoo folk art on the ceilings, shutter blinds, lit via bright artificial lighting, private booths, old wood beams crossing above its guests, and all very low lit.

I had my camera on me, as I always do, and the decor put me in the mood to take 1970s vampire, ghost movie shots. Here’s one I took of Aryn:
