Impromptu Pride Fashion Shoot

When I was through enjoying the Pride March, I went home for a break, and after resting I was energized enough to take my camera back out and walk around Chelsea in the warm late afternoon sunlight. On 14th Street I passed a couple taking photos and selfies in delicious golden light. They were aware of my photographing their shoot, and after showing them my photos on the back of my camera, they agreed to let me make some photos of them. Here are the results.

2019 New York City Pride March

About 30 years ago I witnessed my first pride march. It was so exciting that I imagined someday living along the parade route. Three years later I moved to Manhattan, and while I was close to the parade, it never passed my doorstep until now. It was a mixed blessing, as the parade was still passing close to midnight when I inserted earplugs to get some sleep.

I spent a few hours watching the march, and here are some of my favorite photos. The best part was the new friends I made striking up conversations with fellow onlookers.

Thirty-Second Portraits at Google

In association with Pride Month, Google asked me to make portraits of many of their LGBTQ employees. We chose a location at a plant wall, I set up my lighting, and then I had about two hours to photograph a constant stream of more than 200 people. It was the quickest portrait shoot I’ve done. I averaged three frames per subject.

Homo Erectus Boylesque at The Stonewall Inn

Homo Erectus Boylesque at The Stonewall Inn

A friend who is a burlesque performer invited me to a show at The Stonewall Inn and asked if I’d photograph his act from my seat in the audience. The official photographer didn’t show up, so the show’s producer asked me if I’d be willing to photograph the entire show. Of course I was!

I made these photos for Autism Science Foundation at their “Sixth Annual Day of Learning.” The symposium, held at the New York Athletic Club, was a TED-style conference where scientists made 15-minute presentations on critical issues in autism science.
