My recent interview in JustLuxe.
Please check out my recent interview in AXS an online publication focusing on music and the arts.
I shot this in upstate NY at an outdoor rodeo just before these twins sang the national anthem. Such a weird juxtaposition. This was shot on film and processed in Photoshop and Topaz software. I believe this was shot with a 14mm fisheye lens. I’d check but i sold the lens a few years ago. I really like this one . . .
About 10 years ago I went on road trip through Texas and found this cop at a roadside fast food burger joint. I fought off my intimidation and asked him if I could snap a portrait of him. I recently rediscovered the image and started to play around with converting it to black and white. Using 3 types of Topaz software this is what I came up with. I like this version much better than the color.
A good interview (with images) with your’s truly just came out in Dohdo Magazine, a great photography magazine out of Barcelona. Please check it out.
I have been asked by Stephanie Heimann, the senior photo editor at The New Republic to take over their Instagram feed for one week starting tomorrow 4/30 through the following Friday and post two of my Neo-Burlesque portraits per day. Their one request . . . not too much skin. They can be found on Instagram as @newrepublic
This is a recent portrait of Yan who I found on Model Mayhem. I shot this in color and processed into black and white using Topaz software. I liked the black and white better especially the platinum color hair against the dark background. She was good in front of the camera which always helps.
A selection from my Neo-Burlesque project along with an article about the series is now appearing in Dohdo Magazine. Dohdo is an online photography magazine out of Barcelona featuring photographers from around the world.
A selection of my portraits from my Musicians 50+ series was just awarded in the 2015 One Eyeland Awards in the category People/Portraits. Above is bass player Kenny Aaronson.
