Elision is a hardcore and metal outfit from Long Island, NY. They embrace the heavy. James (bass), is an old dear friend of mine and when he asked me to work with his band I never thought it would happen due to scheduling with the band and my hectic schedule with the studio. Finally, we made it happen when it was actually light out. The last shoot was not successful since it was in the pitch black darkness. I am really happy with the way these came out.

Four Nights Gone is a rock band based out of Staten Island, New York. For fans of Thrice, Deftones, Chevelle, and Breaking Benjamin. We went to a local spot that I thought fit well with the sound of the band in terms of an aesthetic. They were a great group of guys and I hope they do big things. They recorded with Mike Watts in Port Jefferson, NY.
Beyond Visible is a rock band based out of New Jersey. The location of the shoot is one that I was extremely honored to shoot at. The Port Jefferson Ferry was docked and I got a free pass to go wherever I wanted on the vessel. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. Thank you to Dean for setting this up and giving me this opportunity. I got to meet his bandmates who are all amazing dudes. I look forward to many years of hanging with these guys after they explode...and they will. They recorded their new album with Mike Watts in Port Jefferson, NY. They have an amazing sound that is ready for the radio waves. Dean and I go WAY back and I am SO happy and privileged to reconnect after all those missing years. Keep it up man, you guys are sick.

Freddy Hall is a talented young musician from Brooklyn who has toured with Duncan Shiek's Spring Awakening as a guitarist. His music can be heard here. I had a wonderful time with Freddy in his stylish apartment and also at the transit museum. Afterwards, he treated for a nice lunch at MooBurger (which is where my last shoot took place).

Portrait session with "Chopped Champion" contestant Chef Marc Bynum which brought me to his new(ish) restaurant in Brooklyn, NY called MOOburger. This man is a true talent and it is evident that he absolutely LOVES his art of cooking. He has embraced it by opening a space that is true to him. If you have a chance, stop in and check it out and eat one of the best burgers you will ever have.

I wanna light girls on fire...but for now, I will settle for a junkyard, which was also the place we were graced with the newest addition to our family - our new kitty, HURRICANE. I couldn't be happier with the way the shoot turned out. Dana is an amazing beauty and she has great expression. I love working with her and will time and time again.
