Soaring over New York City.  One of the best experiences of my life.

New York City - Snow Covered Chrysler Building and Skyline

The snow fell

like icing sugar

onto streets

and alleys

that wrapped

themselves

around the city;

a sweet dusting

of white

on top of

glazed chocolate

concrete

and skyscraper

popsicles

that melted on

the tongue

of memory

like

a dream.

This is one of the hundreds of photos and some of the prose featured in my New York photography book which released in stores everywhere worldwide on November 24th. Info about the book (including many photos, sample pages, and info about my history and style of photography):

I am officially a Shorty Awards Photographer finalist!!! - Thanks to you! ♥


I just want to say thank you SO much to everyone who nominated me.

I didn’t find out that the Shorty Awards nominations were open until there was a week left for votes and I feel truly lucky and fortunate to have such amazing support that with just a week’s worth of nominations I somehow became a finalist!

The Shorty Awards highlights the best content across Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, Vine and the rest of the social media landscape.



I will be attending the ceremony here in NYC at the Times Center in April, for sure. 

What an honor.

I don’t even care if I win or not to be honest. I am just thrilled to be a finalist!!


So much love to you all!!!

New York Comic Con, Jacob Javits Center, NYC | 2014

This is the second portrait I did at New York Comic Con in black and white. I wanted to isolate the person while creating a sort of 3 dimensional image. Doing the portraits in black and white highlights the personality of the cosplayer more, rather than the clothes. I actually learned this from a quote I heard a while ago by Ted Grant in which he said, “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls.” This is one of the reasons why I do a lot of my street photography in black and white.
