Nicaragua I

The road to our hotel.

Luis swimming in a natural hot spring.

This one almost took me out... knee deep white water after this frame.

Justin resting

Luis, Clarke, and Justin bodysurfing some shitty waves.

More later.

Lit by Lightning

Beach in front of our hotel in the middle of the night. Armchair tripod, 30 second exposure, lit by the lightning flashes behind me.

Halfway through the trip I was hospitalized with a kidney infection. Spent the last half on my back not taking photos and not surfing. More pics later.

I'm gone for 10 days...

Leaving for Nicaragua in a couple of hours. Here is a last minute dump of images from my "to do" folder. Back in 10 days with some (hopefully) awesome photos.

Nick and I went home to visit the folks and have a BBQ. Two photos of pops right before our late train back to the city.

Getting ready for my Nicaragua trip. Trying to find time to post up my remaining unworked photos before leaving. Start with a clean slate when I get back.

Hairstylist working on a model.

Most jobs have 2 to 4 hours of down time after light setup and before shooting. I usually walk around eating, complaining, and taking pictures during this time.

Some more snaps from a Luis set a couple of months back.

a detail.

We never work in late summer.  These pics above, and a couple more this weekend, are the last of any "behind the scenes" photos for a little while.

McCarren Pool

More pics from last Sunday. Watched Deerhunter play McCarren Pool from Justin's roof.

Got a good look at that seaplane thats always landing in the East River.

Going to Nicaragua at the end of next week on a roadtrip. Super excited to get out of here...we never work in August and New York is wearing on me.

Last light on Sunday...

The photo below is super nice as a tiff but I had some gradients trouble when it was converted to a jpeg.

More from this group later in the week when I get some time.

Emily and Justin

Frozen drinks.

The sky started to clear.

Late subway home.

3rd weekend in a row.  We all went out to Clarke's beach house last Saturday for a BBQ.

Pouring rain when we left but things turned real nice later.

More to come.

A bunch of us went out to Clarke's beach house yesterday. We went surfing and had a BBQ afterwards.

Here's Erin peering over the hammock after dinner. Took a shitload more photos that won't be finished till a little later.

Justin's Roof

The clouds were bizarre last Sunday. Justin took a better photo of them here.

I borrowed his 200mm lens and spied on midtown...

My last frame of the day. This dense, soupy quality of light sums up a New York summer evening for me.
