Rockaway with Steve

Took the subway to the beach on Friday afternoon.

Steve went surfing and I mooched around the boardwalk taking pictures.

Post sunset shuttle back to the A train.

Parking lot light

Its nice when their sensors break.

Last Friday, Rockaway Beach.

Went to Rockaway beach with Steve on Friday.

Went to the beach on Sat afternoon.  More of these to come later in the week when I get time.

Nick getting torqued.

Pictures of a model waiting around.  Luis shot at a retarded house in Berlin and we spent lots of time lounging around in the backyard.

Another version below that I'm liking a little more.


There are many more "behind the scenes" from this shoot that I'll post later this summer.

Went to the Carnival last weekend. Nick and I rode in the chair thing that takes you over the whole place. This is what it looked like. (Kind of dropped the ball on this flash exposure. Been using Alan's old Nikon SB28 till mine gets fixed.)

We watched some pig races. This was the crowd.

The small fast pigs..

and the big fat slow pigs.

Some closeup crops..


Bizarre ambient light situation.


Some random photos of Al skating in Secaucus last weekend.

good times

Dear God, make me a bird...

Nick and I went to visit Al in Jersey last weekend. Took lots of good photos that I haven't worked on yet.

Our mission was to find a fort hidden away in the Meadowlands.

Luis shot this girl Olga in Long Island last week

She had the craziest eyes and marbly skin.  This detail shot isn't retouched in any way except overall curves and levels.  God knows how Russia cranks these creatures out.

Oh, and obviously Keiko is good at makeup.

Luis did a shoot on Long Island last week. I took these photos while waiting on the hair and makeup.

A big man was launching his daughter into the air.

The sun went behind a cloud and I crept to the edge for his next big throw.


"Goodfellas" and "Far From Heaven" were both filmed there. The yenta factor was sky high. I was subjected to "Hey...take MY picture" requests and awkward encounters all day long.


I emailed Rachel Hulin over at "Shoot the Blog" and asked if she could look at my stuff. She ended up posting some photos and saying nice things here.

All the photos I like since march this year. Time to edit.

From above

The last batch from Luis' Rockaway shoot a couple of weeks ago.


I'm liking the density and color of this bottom photo more. Playing around with profiles until its time to re-process and print all these in a couple of weeks.

July 4th part III

Some firework photos from Friday. All exposures were made between .5 and 8 seconds using boulders and a water bottle for my tripod.

It started raining pretty hard and my camera was dripping wet. Managed to find a boulder under a tree to rest it on and take the following 5 photos.

So many cool little details in the smoke.

The walk home was pretty amazing but I was bummed about my flash breaking. It was pouring rain and I shot these two misty jams hand held from under my umbrella.
