Spring in New York City

Daffodil Walk

  Spring is one of the most enjoyable seasons in New York City, breathing new life into the Big Apple and presenting the photographer with a multitude of options for capturing this annual revival. The flowering cherry trees seen on nearly every street provide a much-needed visual oasis from the tiresome and repetitive brick and […]





Manhattanhenge, New York City

Manhattanhenge

What makes this beautiful sunset light percolating through the New York City grid and illuminating the urban canyons extraordinarily special is that during Manhattanhenge, the setting sun aligns exactly between the bustling streets. Due to seasonal variations in position of the sun, it rises precisely due east and sets due west only twice a year. The […]





Destination: New York – Magazine Cover

Downtown West

I am proud to announce the publication of my first magazine cover, featuring a blue hour view of downtown Big Apple. “Destination” is a travel magazine published by the prominent French publisher Milan Presse, with a circulation of 90,000 copies throughout France, Netherlands and Belgium. This March 2011 issue is dedicated to New York City. […]





Empire State Building, New York City

There is not a more quintessential New York landmark than the Empire State Building. Rising 102 stories or 1,250 feet (381 meters) above midtown, this Art Deco skyscraper illuminates the city as colorful as its changing lights, and is absolutely central to the New York skyline. It had stood as the city’s tallest building since […]





Framed, New York City

"Framed"

In another addition to my new “Streets and Strangers” set, this is a scene that immediately hit my eye. In a composition that requires little explanation, I saw a man waiting for someone by a blue-lit Citibank panel, which just happened to be framed perfectly by the panel of revolving doors right before me. All I […]





Grand Central Terminal, New York City

Watch the PM Rush

This kicks off an exciting new chapter in my photography, where I will begin exploring street scenes and bringing you fresh slices of the daily New York grind. There was no better way to begin this endeavor than by capturing New York City’s iconic Grand Central Terminal using my fantastic Nikkor 35 mm f/1.4G, wide […]





Awaiting Spring, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

Awaiting Spring

It has been finally getting warmer in New York this week, and it seems everyone has springtime on their mind. I thought I would share this photograph of seagulls huddling together on the snowy Coney Island Beach after the last snowstorm, all facing the blowing wind together in anticipation of spring.   I finally got […]





Through the Seasons, Central Park, New York City

Gapstow in December

Gapstow Bridge, looking over the Pond at 59th Street, represents one of the most iconic Central Park landmarks. I have captured this wonderful stone crossing through autumn, winter and spring.       A little bit about the history of the bridge – originally a wooden structure designed by Jacob Wrey Mould in 1874, it […]





For A Minute There, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

ForAMinuteThere

For a minute there, I lost myself.   This is not one of the world famous California coast beaches. This is Coney Island / Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, but there is no shortage of great images to be captured here. Although this is the birthplace of Astroland, America’s first theme park, it was not what I […]





Warmth on a Snowy Day, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

"Warmth on a Snowy Day"

After a day of shoveling snow yesterday, I had suspicions that the sunset would be great. I headed to Coney Island Beach, just 10 minutes from my home. As I traversed a good foot of snow on the beach to get to the shore, the colors blew up. Amidst all the snow and cold, I […]





The Lineup, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

"The Lineup"

Today I ventured out in the snow to find a special shot around where I live – Brighton Beach/Coney Island, Brooklyn. A few interesting compositional possibilities presented themselves, and this lineup of seagulls is certainly one of them. They were all huddling together – whether on the snowy beach (see the left part of the […]





The Center of the World, New York City

Times Square, NYC

This blue hour, mid-January shot of Times Square brings me to an important topic. How do you generate light trails? The easy answer is, using long exposures. However, this can be difficult in a brightly lit location, such as Times Square, especially if one wishes to preserve the color of the sky and shoot at […]





Neon Rush, New York City

Times Square, NYC

Today is a cold day in New York City and although the sky was ablaze with colors at sunrise, the sunset had no light to offer because of the oncoming storm. I therefore headed to a place fully lit 24/7/365, the center of the city and the world – Times Square. Every time I come […]
