I’ve taken a ton of portraits this last year and I try to keep experimenting with different styles. Sometimes the location inspires the feel of the shot, other times I use my own light and try to create a mood. I enjoy the challenges with each shoot and I am always left wishing I had more time or equipment at my disposal. This is a very broad set and there might be a re-post or two here.
I explored Saugerties, NY, with my girlfriend for Thanksgiving and it was beautiful. She and her cousin Eli ended up being my photo subjects on our snowy hike by the Hudson River.
A few shots from the rest of my weekend in New York City earlier this month – scenes from Coney Island, Staten Island Ferry, 9/11 memorial, and various street/subway locations.
I was invited by charity: water‘s multimedia director, and my good friend, Mo Scarpelli, to help photograph the organization’s annual charity: ball fundraiser in New York City a few weeks ago. Happy to help and even happier for an excuse visit friends in Brooklyn, I hopped on the Amtrak and braced myself for a fast-paced weekend in the city.
When the guests started to arrive on Monday evening, seven photographers and I did slow circles around the event space for almost five hours, taking photos of everything and everyone. All told, the event raised 2.5M by the time the lights came on at 11. My camera didn’t come along to the after party (for better or for worse…) but here are some shots from the gala, held at the 69th Regiment Armory building in Manhattan. More info and photos on their blog.
