A Boy and His Dog

I recently completed renovating my apartment, and with the new layout and decor, I was considering an experimental photo shoot there to explore its potential as a set for future shoots. I was interested in how my subject, my equipment, and I would fit in the space, and what I could accomplish with window light, studio lights, and a combination of the two. Coincidentally, a model I had worked with before contacted me to suggest we do another shoot. I had seen from his Instagram feed that he just adopted and adorable puppy, and I half-jokingly suggested that he bring his dog to the shoot. It turned into a great success. The apartment, though small, was easy to work in, and the puppy was as well behaved as I could expect a puppy to be when exploring new surroundings, especially with two cats present.

Wall Street Rides FAR to benefit Autism Science Foundation

Wall Street Rides for Autism Research

On October 7, 2017, the Wall Street community joined together for a bike ride throughout Westchester County to raise funds for autism research. Wall Street Rides FAR  raised more than $270,000 for the Autism Science Foundation. The ride started at Saxon Woods Park in White Plains and ended there with a closing ceremony and festival. Bloomberg News used my photos in an article where you can read more about the event.

Portraits at Home

After photographing my friend in my studio, he invited me to his home to take advantage of the view and the window light. Unfortunately, the day was heavily overcast, but we made the most of it. I supplemented the lackluster window light with a strobe I brought.

When I arrived, my subject was finishing up some baking, so we made a mess in the kitchen before getting to the photography we had planned. We made the best photo of the day before even getting started.
