Some highlights from the fifth annual Spring in the Stuy celebration at La Cima Charter School in Bedstuy, Brooklyn.Read More
Some work from the Innovation Issue of Edible Magazine. I shot Heritage Radio director Erin Fairbanks in Bushwick. Heritage is leading the way in a new wave of internet radio and podcasts. Their headquarters are in a transformed shipping container attached to Roberta's Pizza. Portraits and pizza? Not a bad afternoon.

Some new portraits from an ongoing series about anxiety, change, and reflection...
We are all in flux, all changing, and always moving forward. More to come :)
NYC got a slight dusting from snowstorm Juno last weekend. It wasn't quite the "blizzard" that was forecast, but the travel ban and trains being down still made for a couple of fun and quiet walks into the city.
The Brooklyn Nets kicked off the 2014-2015 season at the beginning of November, and I've been busy almost every week (and some weekends) since, shooting home games and events for the marketing and entertainment departments. Here are some of my favorite images from the season so far...
The first in a small series of portraits I'm working on.
One of the reasons I love living in NYC is that it's put me in contact with fellow artists I've only been able to follow via tumblrs or personal blogs. It's a thrill running into (and sometimes living down the street from) photographers I really respect. Such is the case with Josh Wool.
Josh has been doing some amazing work lately, and his recent tintype portraits have been incredible. He recently earned a spot in VSCO's Artist Initiative Program, and has been traveling around the Hudson Valley making some beautiful images.
It takes a lot of work (and chemicals) to set up a single frame, so I was honored when he asked me to sit for a quick tintype a few days before he packed up his gear and hit the road for his VSCO project. It's a slow process with the sitter having to stay perfectly still for the sometimes 4-second exposure. Josh has his processing down, and as you can see, the results are really stunning. See more of Josh's work here, and keep up with his progress via his VSCO grid here. Thanks Josh!
I spent Saturday at the Bushwick Block party with friends. We weren't sure what to expect after waiting in line for about an hour, but we had a great day. Good food, good drinks, and good people? This Summer is shaping up to be pretty great. Click through to see photos from the day!
