Pharrell for NYU Tisch School of the Arts

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Pharrell during his career retrospective talk with  Jason King at Town Hall.  Pharrell is the new Artist-in-Residence for NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the interview covered everything from his childhood in Virginia, early musical influences, success with the Neptunes, N.E.R.D., and working with some of the biggest names in music today.  As a fan myself, it was amazing to hear him talk about the evolution of his career and how so much of his success has come from experimenting and having a "Mr. Magoo" philosophy of stumbling onto ideas and following your instincts.  Check out NPR to watch the interview, and  thanks to Marat Berenstein and Nikki Mirasola for a great night!

Making The Cover for Ebony Magazine

I was hired by Ebony Magazine to shoot some behind-the-scenes images of the May cover shoot with Wendy Williams.  It was a fun and crowded day, with multiple hair stylists, wardrobe stylists, video & photography crews, and Wendy Williams' own entourage on set.  It was amazing to watch celebrity photographer, George Holz and his crew work through several lighting and location challenges, and come away with a great cover.  Enjoy a few more from the day:

Veterans Day at Yankee Stadium

Some recent work for the USO!  

Service members, veterans, volunteers, Yankee staff, and even Joe Girardi himself attend the 2014 Veterans Day Service event held at Yankee Stadium. Participants lined up to make care packages that will be shipped by the USO to troops serving in remote units throughout Afghanistan.  

Storm King

Last weekend I took a trip out to Mountainville, NY with some friends to visit the Storm King Art Center.  I had seen so many incredible photos from friends over the summer, that I had to check it out myself.
