Happy Thanksgiving!

On a Nest of Bokeh

Today, I am thankful for the gift of being a photographer. It is wonderful to have the ability to show others not only the places and people they have never seen before, but more importantly, to possess the keen eye to notice and capture the seemingly bland fleeting moments of everyday life to reveal them […]





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 […]





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 […]
