It's automatically special to be a part of someone's wedding day, and it's doubly special when it's for a friend like Katie and her swell new husband Lorenzo. And Katie's wedding was thirdly special because their wedding was in one of my favorite parts of Central Park, the Wisteria Pergola inside the Conservatory Garden.Read More
There isn't much I'd be tempted to change in my life if I could go back and do it all over, but boy would I like to give my five-year-old self a birthday party like this Star Wars extravaganza I photographed last month. The lucky birthday girl and her friends learned how to wield a lightsaber from a visiting Jedi -- just in time to help him defeat Darth Vader who just happened to walk by.Read More
The vague memories I have of seeing the West Indian-American Day Parade about six years ago are mostly of sun, feathers and dancing. Which was actually pretty accurate for when I shot it again on Labor Day for Time Out New York.Read More
Last Sunday was the perfect day for a fun shoot in the park with Sunaina so she could get some beautiful new profile pictures.Read More
Despite having lived in New York for six years (that seems far too long but yikes it's true), I've never seen Macy's fireworks extravaganza. This year my girlfriend and I decided to change that by heading up to the Long Island City river park and join the thousands of others lying in wait. And wow was it worth the effort. To borrow a line from Seinfeld, I can confirm that the Macy's fireworks are real and they're spectacular. It was a legit half hour of the largest explosions I've seen in real life and the sound was so loud that the echoes bouncing off the buildings behind us felt like a tank battalion chasing after Dr. Jones.
I've shot races for the NYRR for more than five years now but only rarely do I get to sit on the back of the lead truck and take pictures of the fastest runners.Read More
This was my first Mermaid Parade and it had lots of the skin and alcohol and laughter that I had heard so much about. But also lots and lots of kids.Read More
I hauled around my new wide-angle lens while running errands today and once again I was astounded by the sheer variety of sights on display in New York.Read More
Rolling clouds and light showers couldn't drive people away and together we toughed out the weather delays to enjoy a wonderful show by the New York Philharmonic and violinist Joshua Bell, who is so good and so popular that even I know who he is.Read More
One of the good things about living in New York is that there are no bad spots to test out new camera gear. I chose Brookfield Place near the Hudson River. Good choice, I think.Read More
For getting caught in the rain.
I somehow took his photo in the middle of the Brooklyn Half Marathon a couple of weeks ago without even realizing it.
I was scrolling through my archives and came across these photos I took of a Nutcracker ballet performance a few years ago. I'm still not sure how humans can move like that.Read More
It's not every day that you get to hear spiritual leader Dada J.P. Vaswani speak to a small group. It's even rarer to receive this special gift, along with his blessing, on your birthday. I must be one lucky guy.Read More
A few of my favorite photos from the dual birthday party of Pippa Cohen and Bertha Gonzalez Nieves. You can't see it but behind the camera I'm mouthing the words to "California Love."Read More
