I keep lying and trying,
Denying the call from inside,
You can't hide responsibility,
So decide from today just who it's going to be,
Thou shalt have no other god but me.
So set your free see...
But you'll have to listen,
And who's that false idol I see you kissing?
Money, success and untold wealth, good health,
And all you have to do is love yourself,
It's a fact, you'll attract all the things that you lack,
So just chill,
And get off the race track,_
And take a pace back, face facts,
It's your decision.
You don't need eyes to see
You need vision.

Tell him I'm eating."

A beautiful taxi-ful evening in NY tonight.

Jessica in fading sunlight

Spring is here - finally. With it I somehow managed to get a little cold that has, according to my doctor, blossomed in to full blown pneumonia. My camera bag feels to be about 10 times it's normal weight and I have no desire to leave my bed...

With that said, Jessica came home with new hair today and I was reminded, as I often am, how lucky I am.

It's like spring came to me :)

Basic Information

Photography for creative humans.
Photographer, multimedia artist - technoholic. I find ways to connect with, help and be inspired by creative humans. 

A little bit about me and photography

What got me started?

I grew up in a "theater" family. I would often find my mother in the darkness of the theater by the red glow of her cigarette or by the sound of the shutter on her camera.  She directed my sister danced, and for a long time, I watched. Eventually the camera, A Canon AE1 with a 50mm lens, was put in my hands. I still have that AE1 today.

I love the smell of fixer in the morning (doesn't everyone), but the allure of a nearly infinite number of shots and not spending hundreds of dollars on film and days in a dark room quickly won me over. I purchased my first digital camera in the late 1990’s and haven't stopped clicking since.

What inspires me? 

The theater, rockstars, period films,  Blade Runner and good editorial fashion photography (past and present).

What type of photos do I take?

Photography for creative entrepreneurs.

Performing artists, actors, models, dancers, painters, jewelry makers, DJs and musicians make up a shortlist of the creative humans I have been lucky enough to photograph.

Selected Gear

Cameras: Canon 5D MKII, Canon 6D, Canon S95, iPhone

Glass: Canon 24-70mm f/2.8, Canon 70-200mm F/2.8 IS, Canon 50mm f/1.4 (and various lenses that I will rent for specific projects)

Lights: Various battery powered LED panels for video and stills, Canon 480EXII, Canon 580EXII, Alien Bees (400s and 800s), Cheap 150 w/s lights that get clamped onto just about anything.
