Sometimes I miss the smell of a darkroom late at night, or at least the magic of watching a print develop. I learned photography using large format cameras and developing my own film, as well. However, today's technologies keep the magic alive in ways we couldn't quite imagine years ago. And takes the art of perfection to a whole new extreme. Although I'm somewhat of a traditionalist in how I see things, most inspired by early masters of the craft, I fully embrace today's arena and it's fascinating to see how so many others see their world, even if only via iphones.
I was born and raised in NYC and still live here. Growing up I leaned towards creativity rather than sports or traditional academia. I developed a passion for photography in college and it's only gotten stronger since then. After graduating with a BFA in Photography from SUNY New Paltz I started building a more commercial portfolio. I apply that artist’s eye to everything I see and photograph. I specialize in photographing people and my work is licensed world wide by Getty Images for everything from small town editorials to national advertisements. I"ve also photographed my fair share of musicians, actors, models, and the average New Yorker.
But my real roots are in the arts and I'm grateful to be able to share that passion with you here. New York City is in my blood and photographing it keeps it new to me. If I didn't love it, I wouldn't still be here. It's fascinating that you can live in the same place your whole life and still discover some hidden gem tucked away on a side street that you might have missed years ago. The City has so many faces, moods, expressions, feelings. In this way I still feel like a portrait photographer when studying it through a lens.
