The Making of: "A Beach of a Day"

In May 2013, we braved the elements in Miami Beach to shoot a fashion editorial that first appeared in 360 Magazine. Normally, in South Florida, braving the elements means staying out of the sun (or hiding from a quick afternoon shower), but this time we were plagued by 30mph wind gusts and rain all day. The...

Photos of the Greenpoint, Brooklyn Recycling Plant Fire

I don't consider myself a photojournalist, I would much rather control the scene that I'm working in and create my own visual reality. Earlier this week (March 18, 2014), a fire destroyed a Recycling Plant in my neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I think this was a perfect example of working in a situation that I...

Editing (a fashion story), the old fashion way.

As much as I love technology, and use it to further my work in every aspect it can, sometimes doing an edit on a story is best left to the old fashioned way. When working towards a tight final edit of my editorial projects, I tend to print out my favorite frames from a story...

Miami Beach editorial shoots.

Our team spent the last week in May shooting two editorial projects in South Beach. The first editorial project was a night shoot on Ocean Drive. The second a mixture of beach and sun; only we didn't have any sun, it turned out to be a rainy and windy day. We're not talking light winds,...
