Website update

Finally got around to putting up the backstage stuff from September

My favorite pictures from makeup and front row are weirdly similar

Bigger versions of the two runway shots I liked

Next step is to redo the website itself...working on that now..

A couple of pictures from the end of summer


New Years

A picture from New Years day

This year I brought along some boots but ended up going in up to my waist so they didn't do anything but slow me down. My pants, wallet and camera got soaked and a lot of frames were shaky or out of focus from the shivering.
Not the best subway ride home...

So in preparation for putting up a bunch of new pictures I've started the thankless task of redoing my tired website.. First thing was to rescan a few problem negs..

Big detail

very still 4" balanced on a handrail shot

Speaking of details..almost done with these fashion week pics. Here's a big detail from the best front row photo I took


Found this outtake from a few years ago

Hahn-Bin for

I photographed violinist Hahn-Bin's pre-show makeup routine a few days ago..

Some of my favorites and some outtakes...

Hahn-Bin was cool..he didn't seem to mind me yammering on or getting really close and popping a flash right in eyes.

The room was small and the existing light was pretty horrendous...The process took some time so I was able to mess around with my little flash quite a bit

Some still lifes

I like these two

Apparently violinists can't take baths before shows or go grocery shopping because it ruins their finger tips

Almost done

Overview of the dressing room

Sound check

I had free rein during sound check

Last minute drink

Last minute touch ups

Last minute warm up

Last minute moves

He went to Julliard at 14 and has been studying under Itzhak Perlman for the last 10 years.

So then I came home and watched some videos of Itzhak Perlman and the last minute of him shredding in this video is one of the greatest thing I've ever seen. I like the old man Cello player smiling behind him at the end..
