NINE with Rob Marshall and Harvey Weinstein!

This group was by far one of the most interesting groups of people I have shot to date, Mr. Harvey Weinstein, Rob Marshall (director of Chicago), John Deluca, and Marc Platt. They were discussing with a room full of producers how they developed the film Nine which is set for release on Christmas day. It's an homage to Fellini's 8½, however this film was done in the fashion of a musical. If you liked Chicago, my guess is you'll love Nine. I would give my review, but I couldn't make it to the screening before the talk.

Because the guys weren't on a stage I was able to get super close so I had the opportunity to have a little more freedom than normal. For me it was so surreal to be in the presence of people who have accomplished so much in their careers and who have so much power ( you know who I'm talking about). wow. I love this job! I feel so lucky I even get to listen to the insider details of how this movie came to be. Pretty interesting stuff, sometimes I get distracted from shooting and just start listening, uh-oh.

A Single Man

This past Monday I had the pleasure of shooting the very special PGA screening of Tom Ford's directorial debut of A Single Man. Starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore. It was so much fun and such a beautiful film! The Director of photography was Eduard Grau, who in my humble opinion, was the icing on the cake! Be sure to check this one out, but beware, it's not cheery but it is an elegantly told story love and life, the past, and the future.

You can watch the preview here.

Me & Orson Welles- PGA Screening, Q&A

A couple days before Thanksgiving I got to shoot another Q&A for the Producer's Guild. This time was with director Richard Linklater and actor Chistian Mckay who plays Orson Welles in the film Me & Orsen Welles which stars Claire Danes and Zac Efron.

ArpLine - Fold Up Like a Piece of Paper

A friend of mine Gregg Condé shot a stop action music video today for a group called ArpLine. I was invited to come along to manage the data and do a little photo assisting. I brought my camera for back-up but also had some time to grab some shots. Here a few of my favs from the day! It was 30º when we started shooting at 6:30am and finally warmed up to around 50º in the afternoon. Despite the cold, the sunlight and Fall colors made the extra effort worth it. I can't wait to see the final cut of the stop-action video for this song. I think it's gonna be something special!

It's Like the Icing on the Cake!

When I shoot events sometimes there are little perks like great views or interesting clusters of people. These are a few of my favorite shots I took just pour moi! Just click to enlarge!

The Networker -Producers Guild of America

These are the tears from the Producer's Guild of America newsletter The Networker. It was great fun shooting these events. The members are always so friendly and willing to let me snap a shot. Thanks to Kelly, Mitzie, and Patrick for making me a part of these events!

Fall Photos With Miss Ellen

It's Fall and what is more fall than sweaters? Yes that's right sweaters! My darling friend Ellen and I spent Tuesday morning taking photographs in Brooklyn. She wore this very Fall sweater (wish I had one) and carried a few of her fav books as props. During the shoot I was lucky enough to have a fellow photographer friend come upon us at what I like to call "hipster beach" where we were getting some shots. Mr. Pete Thompson, was so helpful as to tease me about the way I focus my lens, but in the end was quite helpful holding a book over my lens thus preventing evil flare from entering it. Funny how things work out sometimes. :)

Down Home Mojito

I recently took a trip to Florida on-the-cheap to my mom's house outside of Tampa. My friend Meghan kept insisting that all she wanted "was a drink with a little umbrella in it" so after a trip to Target she got her umbrella and we made some seriously sweet country style Mojitos. I couldn't resist snapping a shot before I drank up.

Scans from the Past

I am currently working on a book for my mom's old friends and members of our family that will document our recent trip to Ohio and images from the previous years. These are a few of the first scans of the project. As of yet, they aren't retouched but there is something so tangible about the film scans. The color for starters, but the depth of field too, quite remarkable.

My photo
Brooklyn, NY
Welcome to my blog! Here you will find a potpourri of images from my personal and professional life. It should be said, I rarely turn down an opportunity to shoot whether it be a wedding or just a good idea for a portrait for a friend or colleague. On planned photo adventures I most likely have my 5D at my side rockin' my 50mm lens (my fav!), but at the very least I've always got my trusty iPhone with it's arsenal of apps (who says you need 21 mega-pixels to make great images?!). So please, scroll and click around. I hope you enjoy looking at my images as much I as I enjoy making them! If you'd like to contact me about a wedding or event, or if you'd just like to say hi, please don't hesitate to drop me a line at Thanks!
