    Resource Magazine, Leica Blog, and Maine Media Workshops!

    It’s been a really busy last month or so (the whole summer has actually been pretty crazy), and lots going on over here with shoots, interviews, and a big workshop announcement!

    First off, Resource Magazine, one of the most reputable photo industry voices has just published a great 4-page spread on my work.  You can pick up a copy at just about any pro photo retailer in the US, as well as any major photo studio…

    Leica Camera just published a really in-depth interview with me about my shooting process, technique, and career, which you can view HERE.

    Lastly, I’ll be teaching my first ever week-long photo workshop, Creative Lighting on Location at the one and only, Maine Media Workshops from August 17-23!  I’ve done quite a few shorter workshops and speaking engagements, and am very excited to have the chance to dive in quite a bit more with this hands-on intensive workshop.  Even cooler, is the fact that this was the first place I ever took a photo workshop, as well as where I first met Joe McNally, who I ended up  assisting for almost five years.  Seeing this all come full circle is quite an honor.  Maine is absolutely gorgeous in August, and I’d love to have you up there! If you have any questions at all, please let me know.




    Promo shoot with NYC rapper- Cakes Da Killa

    I first met Rashard, aka- Cakes Da Killa, late last year when I was photographing him for Red Bull Sound Selects.  I shot a quick backstage portrait of him, and then witnessed one of the most animated and engaging live shows I’ve seen in awhile.  We’ve been in touch since then, and I’ve been trying to pin down some more time to produce a more well-crafted shoot with him.

    Red Bull reached out to me the other day, said they were working with him on his new mix tape, and wanted to to shoot some new promo photos with him to promote the new songs.  Of course, I jumped at the opportunity, and here’s a bit of what we shot in my loft space, Studio 403, in Brooklyn.

    Scroll down for a quick BTS video of the shoot, shot by the amazing Eduardo Angel.  Thanks also goes out to Nick Rapaz for lending a hand assisting and being the designated cereal pourer…
