Photographer in New York City, New York

Photography has always been in my life, my real interest began when I was a high school student borrowing my father’s Nikon to take photographs of friends and family. Later, while at C.W. Post University, I would go to my old high school football games and take photographs from the sidelines. I started selling them to a local newspaper, The Record, a chain of weeklies of which I later became the Director of Photography. I then began shooting NFL games from the stands. I worked my way up as a sports photographer, starting at a paper called Pro Football Weekly, then shooting for the NFL and Sports Illustrated. I was the two-time recipient of the NFL Hall of Fame Photo Contest.
I started moving away from sports and turning my lens towards portraits, this is when I really started to immerse myself into the art of photography, I found it the perfect medium of expression, I found it beautiful and mystical. I first started taking photographs on location then in the studio. Developing my own style, melding together street photography with stylistic fashion, the outcome is edgy portraits that leave the viewer wanting to see whats next. My hallmark was off-centered subjects and filling my shoots with vivid colors and high-contrast black and whites. My photos caught the eye of an editor at Associated Press, who hired me to do a majority of the portraits for the wire. When you’re taking pictures in NYC everyday is different, celebrities, politicians, authors, musicians, business leaders, concerts, fashion shows, you name it and they have been on the other end of my lens at some point, When you’re shooting high profile people with limit time and logistics you become very good at finding a creative solution to make your image different. Photo District News even did a story on me and how I adapted to all the situation I was thrown into . Others publication started to followed, I was involved in creating portraits and fashion for magazines like Vanity Fair, German Vogue, Shape Magazine and shooting music portfolios for record companies like Atlantic, Capital and Sony Music. I even toured extensively with the rock band Shinedown and country music singer Shooter Jennings documenting their tours. I always approached my photography as a vehicle for the viewer to drift away in; I wanted them to feel like they are there and part of the session, as if they are looking through my eyes as I see the situation.
