Playing With My Food

The last few months of food-related work.

I feel at home among nerds

Back in October I spent a few days photographing New York Comic Con. During these magical days I get to embrace my inner fantasy/sci-fi/comic lover and geek out with thousands of other enthusiasts. NYTimes' Instagram account was mine (all mine, mwahahaha!) for the stint, and it ran in the print edition. 

Archie Panjabi

You may know her as Kalinda from The Good Wife, but now Archie Panjabi has moved onto NBC's Blindspot. She was graceful and tuned in, taking directions well and playing around openly. This was a secondary shot after we covered a full-length on a white seamless for a New York Times Arts column. There were about 5 minutes left before she had to run, so we quickly rearranged the lights to focus just on her and darken the room behind her.

I hit the streets in search of interesting accessories.

Kips Bay Decorator Show House

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House invited twenty one designers and architects to transform a luxury Manhattan townhouse for a benefit to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. Shot for The New York Times.

Baked by Melissa

Over the course of a month I worked with Baked by Melissa to update their image library. I worked with their in-house designers to develop concepts that matched their varying needs across platforms. We photographed high volume, exclusive content in the studio and on locations. 

Not Fun

I try to keep things positive and all about showing new work here on my blog. But this time I have a bit of bad news, which I'd like to list for the record. Long story short, I got screwed over by a collaborator on a project I co-founded called Echosight. From speaking to others in various walks of life I've learned that apparently this happens often in business partnerships. Just never expected it to happen to me. As an example, here's a comparison between an article in TIME a while back that describes us as co-creators, versus an article written by my co-founder in Huck  more recently that blatantly omits the accurate history of the project. I've learned a lot from this experience and see it as an opportunity for growth. Anyway, onward to bigger and better things!

Faces of Immigration

Luanne Dietz of CNN Courageous Studio commissioned me to make video and still portraits with audio of asylum seekers from around the world for a project in collaboration with The Knick.
