A beautiful autumn day in Central Park looking across The Lake at the buildings along Central Park West. The scene was captured on the iPhone 4S and post-processed on the iPhone with an app from Nik Software called Snapseed. I highly recommend the app for your iPhone or iPad. Very intuitive and fun to play with the [...]

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.

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 [...]

Apartment 2F has now become STUDIO 2F I’ve now transformed Apartment 2F into STUDIO 2F. Hmmmm… might be a name for a website, or a blog or a new company! The living room now is a studio complete with a portrait background (yes that same cheesy portrait background that they used for all your school [...]
Shot yesterday with Darnell. He’s been modeling for about 5 years now and was so easy to work with. We took 649 pictures during the 4+ hours of shooting. It was fun. There was a lot of back and forth idea sharing and we came up with some good photos.
