NY/NJ based photographer working in a variety of genres. I have multiple studio locations convenient to NYC, NJ, Philadelphia, and Atlantic City.
I work with a wide range of models, from professional to amateur (even some who did not know they would be a model until we met). I believe everyone is a road and the journeys we choose can go in directions as far as our imagination cares to go. When a creative photographer and model get together, magic happens.....
While I work with all types of models, all body types, and in almost all genres, I have one requirement...I need to work with positive, creative people.
There are four main ingredients in my photoshoots:
- The unique beauty that is the human form
- Vibrant color
- The interplay of light and shadow
- Capturing some "truth" about the model, or more simply said, making sure the model's personality and uniqueness comes through
There are other ingredients and spices, but those are the main ones.
I've been a photographer since I was a kid... yes, back in the days of film and the darkroom. And although that sounds ancient to you newbies, it ain't. I might be old enough to be your dad, but not your gramps. As a lad, I started off shooting landscapes and travel photos, and still love that genre. I am very curious and love travel and adventure, and I have my camera (at least one) with me at all times.
Nowadays, I greatly enjoy shooting in retro/vintage/pinup and glamour style. It can be timeless, elegant, and sexy if done well. However, although "Pinups" is in my studio name, understand that it does not limit me. I shoot in almost all genres. I just love to shoot.
I also love to help promote the burlesque community, and other unique creative artists in the NYC, NJ, and Philly areas. So if you are (or know of) a wonderful, struggling, visually interesting, creative artist, reach out to me and let's talk. I enjoy shooting artists on location as they work.
About working with me: I am very laid back and easy to get along with, however I am extremely professional. Feel free to reach out to any of the models I have listed below for a reference. Photoshoots require mutual respect and a level of comfort. The first time we shoot, I tend to chat to open things up and get to know you. Not enough to disrupt the flow, but enough to know if you are crazy or a Republican. Just kidding. I think all artists are a little crazy and I don't judge people on their politics or views. I'm here to take great pictures. Let's work together and find creativeness and spontaneity through a relaxed workflow.
Before we shoot:
- Exchange ideas and get the details down
- Make sure we are on the same page
- Lock in a date and time
- Exchange phone numbers
- Confirm a day or two before the shoot
Communication is key. Life is short. Let's make art.
