I am a New York based still life, street, architecture and fashion photographer. My images represent my perception of the world. It is often repetitive and predictable yet random and diverse. I frame these very qualities of the world to represent what I find uncommon in the common, the hidden in the obvious. My inspirations are the streets that we cross everyday, buildings that we pass by on our daily travels, the trees that line our daily paths, the scenes of our daily lives which we ignore. My purpose is not to bring forth the obvious but to put the obvious in a way its never been seen before.
I like to work with models who have a sense of what the high fashion industry is like and what high end shoots look like. I dont mind working with models to provide them with portfolio building commercial shots, however, I like to do higher end commercial shoots.
I welcome models of all levels of experience as long as they are willing to learn and take direction. I also work with actors and people from various other backgrounds looking to have promotional shoots done.
I am extremely professional and expect the same from my models during the shoot.
PLEASE NOTE for TFP shoots: I don't own a studio, I rent them. If I approach you I will have a space for us to work out of. If YOU approach me, please be prepared to pay for a studio. I can recommend some very cheap studios ($25/hr). I dont think its fair that I pay for the studio and spend hours editing film whereas the model simply shows up and gets a portfolio at the end of the day.
