I am a New York City commercial photographer specializing in the built environment. In layman's terms: I shoot architecture and interior design. More recently in my career, my creative focus has expanded to include fine art architecture of the buildings that make up New York City. My work focuses on the drama that each individual structure provides in the grand scope of a major metropolis.
My career started in 1994, at the age of 13 when I began assisting a wedding photographer, holding lights and changing film rolls. After graduating from New York's School of Visual Arts, I knew photography was what I wanted to do with my life.
My work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Dwell, and others, and has brought me all over North America for commissions from a variety of clients including Gucci, Rolex and SubZero/Wolf.
I invite you to contact me to discuss artwork you may be interested in. I’d love the chance to chat about how we can transform your space with a piece of my art
The built environment communicates with us on a daily basis. Buildings shape our lives, our interactions, and ultimately how we see the world. Growing up in New York City, I have always been enamored by how we are dwarfed by these feats of engineering and architecture. Growing up in the photography business, I have had the privilege of experiencing this world-class city through the unique vantage point of a photographer.
Through my lens, I aim to lift the viewer off the street to present these familiar structures they have known only from the ground, in a new and dynamic way. I highlight New York’s familiar skyline in an unfamiliar and unconventional way, allowing the view to confront these architectural behemoths face-to-face.
Each photo begins with a unique vantage point and compositional angle. After the camera has completed its work, the artistry plays out in post-production. I emphasize the contrasting nature of the subject by amplifying it from its surroundings. Working in grayscale allows me to wash away distractions and focus the audience's eye on the craftsmanship and beauty of each design while maintaining a familiarity that is relatable to the pedestrian.
In my work, I explore familiar structures in a new light and use my 40 years in New York to tell a dramatic story about her buildings.
