Photo of the Day: Panorama Revisited

On a tip, I’ve tried reworking some old “Brenizer method” panoramas with AutoPano Pro. It’s not perfect, but it’s very good, and gets right some panoramas that Photoshop did not. But what I most like is that I can set up a batch to do a bunch of panoramas at once, and then go take […]

Photo of the Day: Sunset Lounging

Here’s another shot from the Rockhouse Hotel in Jamaica. What’s special about this shot? It was taken with my iPhone and minimally edited in Photoshop. Not a bad little camera on the 3Gs if you get the most you can out of it. More on this soon. BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME

Nikon 24mm f/1.4: Initial impressions and RAW samples

Who loves ya, baby? I was supposed to be one of the first people in the world with the new Nikon 24mm f/1.4, but it came while I was on a work holiday in Jamaica. I’m still one of the first to sample its goodness, but instead of a sunny week in Jamaica, you get […]

Wedding: Karen and Kamil at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) Well, you knew from their engagement that I was excited to fly out to California to shoot Karen and Kamil’s wedding, but it topped even my lofty expectations. Any way you look at it, it was the epitome of “geek chic” (which is very much […]

Photo of the Day: Wind in the Water…

A 30-second exposure of huge surf breaking against the waves at the Rockhouse Hotel in Negril, Jamaica. My season is about to explode, giving me all sorts of fun and excitement but not much rest for seven months, so I figured it would be nice to work casually down in the sun this week, processing […]

Photo of the Day: Above the Fray

Usually I like to mix it up in the horah, but at this wedding at the awesome Angel Orensanz Foundation, I seconded Dave Robbins and got to take a different look with a very, very wide-angle shot from the balcony. BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME

Engagement: Allie and Vilas

Vilas noted that yes, he waited 363 days since they were engaged to get around to taking the photos, but I think he made a wise choice, since it would be impossible to pick better weather for a jaunt around lower Manhattan than Saturday. We started and ended at the Corner Bistro, where they met […]

Chewed Up By Fine Dining

“My hands are really messed up,” she said, though she used stronger language. “I want you to take pictures of them.” “Heck yeah!” Maybe I should back up a bit. When I met my friend Rochelle, she was a promising young writer who was in love with (and often troubled by) food. A Food Network […]

Mmmmm … albums …

The wedding albums for Kristy and Mike’s gorgeous wedding at the Belhurst Castle came in this week, and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to show it off. These are from Kiss Wedding Books, one of the three main companies I work with and one that is very popular with my clients, because they do one […]

Photo of the Day: Round and Round They Go

The Hudson Theatre is a very cool venue where you can be married a reworked Broadway stage. If you thought children tended to be performative at weddings any way, you should see what happens when they have a stage to play on. BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME

Portraits: Stephanie in Pasadena

Here is are some more from my session with Stephanie. We wanted to just have a little fun in the warmer weather and get some new looks, including some fitness looks for her book. And of course I had to get a palm tree in there. We don’t see much of those in New York. […]

Photo of the Day: When Irish Eyes Aren’t Smiling

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a photo I took of Jim Fisher, author of On the Irish Waterfront. A photo for this session was later used for the book’s author flap. The clouds really looked like that. The only editing this photo has had is a white balance shift. BACK TO TOP | […]

Photo of the Day: Stephanie, West Coast Girl

If one of my favorite subjects — actress and friend Stephanie Danielson — had to move to California, at least she did it a week before I headed out there, so we could finally shoot in warm(ish) weather. I love bringing out the color of the crazy lighting you can find at night. I love […]

Photo of the Day: When a Boy Eats a Lemon

I spent last week in the Los Angeles area for a Malibu wedding, which gave me opportunity to spend time with my brother and his awesome family. Here my nephew Dougie (voluntarily!) chomps into a lemon. BACK TO TOP | CONTACT ME
