Print Sale II

A few prints from my Maho Beach project just went up on 20x200.

Thank you so much to all those who bought my Irish photos over the past year and a half. The money went to good use and rest assured that any profit on these will go towards finishing a new project I started this past summer.

Backstage at the Opera

Got a call last week to shoot a dress rehearsal up at the Met for

The goal was to try and get photographs of soprano Anna Netrebko in costume. Access and available light were limited but I managed to get a couple of cool snaps. I've never been to an Opera before so the whole experience was awesome..

Here's some outtakes I like..

I did get an escort backstage after this photo and it was insane. It goes back like 5 times deeper than what you can see in the front and there were hundreds of people back there making stuff and rehearsing and goofing off.

Popular Mechanics welding test

Shot some welding photos for Popular Mechanics a few months ago. This is the one that ran..

The still life stuff proved to be tricky with just one pocket flash in the dark New Jersey warehouse.

There was a couple pieces of white cardboard bounce laying around so that helped..I think they turned out pretty nice.

I like these assignments because I can be nerdy and ask a lot of dumb ass questions and nobody seems to mind.
