I had the opportunity earlier this year to work with fitness model Ethan Maxwell Landry (a.k.a. Eh Moo La) a couple of times when he traveled to New York City from his home in Chicago. You can’t tell it from his photographs, but Ethan (a.k.a. Moo) is a rather private and shy person. Recently, New [...]
To get to the Whole Foods grocery store in New York’s Time Warner Center… you have to go down escalators to the lower level of the mall. This is a shot hanging over the railing from the fourth level of the mall looking straight down at the escalators and the food court tables. The path [...]
The first night of September was beautiful on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. 70°F, no humidity… a perfect fall evening during the last days of summer. Traffic zooms down Broadway past the 72nd Street subway station. Midnight along Columbus Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and all is quiet.
The streets on the Upper West Side of Manhattan were wet and empty as Hurricane Irene arrived Sunday morning. No cars or pedestrians along New York City’s Columbus Avenue Sunday morning as Irene arrived.
An amazing sunset reflected against the clouds over New York City’s Columbus Avenue inspired me to experiment with something new for me… HDR. HIgh Dynamic Range imaging lets the photographer capture a wide range of highlights, shadows and colors using a several images merged together and manipulated with photo processing software. This image is a [...]
Water towers are as New York as yellow taxicabs, and just as omnipresent. A distinctive feature of residential (and many commercial buildings) in New York City is the presence of wooden roof-mounted water towers, which were required on all buildings higher than six stories by city ordinance in the 19th century because the municipal water pipes [...]
It was a wet Sunday on the Upper West Side of Manhattan… but the weekend brunch crowd still ventured out onto the sidewalks at 73rd Street and Columbus looking for food. According to the NY Daily News… New York broke an all-time record for a one-day rainfall Sunday as up to 8 inches of water [...]

Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd recently published some inspirational videos on his Vimeo page that are now going viral. Two standouts for me were his works titled “The Mountain” and “The Aurora.” These amazingly beautiful videos were both shot with an HD DSLR camera.
I had the pleasure of working with Orlando-based model Sergio Chang over the first weekend of April.

November 6 2011 update below… A very wise man at KAKE-TV named Larry Hatteberg once told me to ‘bank on the small successes’. Seeing one of my photos on young actor Trevor Teichmann’s IMDb page this week made me smile. A small success on the road to something bigger. Trevor’s Mom let me know that [...]
I shot with Greg Johnson from Colby Models recently. It was honestly one of the best shoots I’ve done in the five years I’ve been shooting with models. Greg walked in the studio.

The Cloud. The wave of the future. Storing all your important files, pictures, music in ‘the cloud’ so that it’s instantly available from anywhere you have internet access.

After far too long, I’ve finally updated my photography website. This is all a part of a life transition for me. After 23 years, I left ABC News in 2010 as a part of a corporate downsizing. It seemed like a great time to turn a hobby into a money-making endeavor. So as we begin [...]
