At Balthazar this morning. A great French bistro in SoHo, NYC.
The Story Behind the Photographs
For those of you in NYC, The AIPAD Photography Show New York, one of the most important international photography art events, will be presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), April 4-7, 2013.
More than 75 of the world’s leading photography art galleries will present a wide range of museum-quality work, including contemporary, modern and nineteenth-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.

There are two upcoming NYC gallery openings in April worth mentioning and if you are in the city I would highly recommend taking some time to see them. The first is photographs by Bill Brandt showing at the Edwynn Houk Gallery and the second is an exhibit of Bert Stern’s images at the Staley-Wise Gallery. Click on the images below to read about each exhibit.
This year marks the centennial of The Armory Show. The show brings artwork from around the world and puts it all under one roof for all to see. Since 1913 it has been very instrumental in the way Americans look and interact with all forms of art. As in the past, this year’s show brings together a large number of influential photo galleries from around the world and those located here in NYC. For a list of some of the photo galleries involved (with photographs) visit Le Journal de la Photographie. For The Armory Show web site click on the image above. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Take one very charismatic, camera-friendly reality star, stir in the tourist melting pot that is Times Square, and you’ve created the perfect cocktail for fan recognition. Not only did Jackson graciously pose for photos with fans, he accepted an unexpected role from this woman, who was evidently not impressed by me or my camera (and apparently unaware of his star status): impromptu photographer.
On location with actress Natalie Berk in SoHo.
Had a bit of fun a week ago shooting with Beth Caldwell (a photo editor with Animal Planet) on the streets of New York City. We took a break from our location in Central Park and walked to an adjacent street. The wet pavement, the crowds, overcast sky – the entire scene was screaming CSI. So we set up a mock advertisement showing Beth with her husband Fletcher. We didn’t need the long dark overcoats or guns. The attitude says it all.
Tribute in Light on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. On location in SoHo, NYC. Very moving day.
I have been spending much of my time over the last two weeks shooting for my stock archive. The light this time of year is absolutely fantastic, so I want to take every change I get to shoot. Keeping busy shooting is nice, but it’s also nice to get calls from clients who want to see what I’ve recently been up to. I send images to several stock houses and one art consultant who works with a variety of hotels, designers, and architects. The consultant recently called and asked if I had any architecture images that were design oriented. Good thing I’m always shooting. They wanted single horizontal images or groups of three verticals. Finished size is to be at least 6 ft wide. Here are some examples of what I presented to them.
