PORTRAITS IN PROVINCETOWN: VOLUME 2

Hello!

Here is the second volume of my Portraits In Provincetown series. It was Bear Week in Provincetown this past week so the town was populated with people of all shapes and sizes. It was great to see such diversity and life walking down Commercial Street. Wear-Your-Sling-To-Tea Dance was a particularly fun day to photograph if I do say so myself.

Volume 3 and 4 are already in the works so relax, examine and most of all enjoy these new batch of photos!

Until next time!

Portraits in Provincetown: Volume 1

Hello! I’ve begun a new photo series that I’m calling Portraits in Provincetown. For some time now, I’ve been enamored by Richard Avedon’s In The American West series. While there is certainly much to discuss about that particular photo series, I keep finding myself drawn to the aesthetic design of those photos and have wanted to do something similar with my own photography.

 

As I’ll be spending the next two and half months in Provincetown, I thought I would engage in a portrait series that would not only act as an homage to Avedon’s career defining series, but also as a way to become known throughout the community here.

 

I choose to photograph volunteers to stand in front of the Storm Shingles that help define Provincetown and take their portrait. I’m not interested in directing each person on how to pose, so the images you see are as honest of a representation of how these people as you’re going to see.

 

Enjoy!

Birthday Man

It’s M’s birthday! And he’s just as cute as the first day whenI found him on the street all wet and malnourished.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

I just completed a a gig photographing the wedding of Bob and Carol at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The day couldn’t have been more perfect weather wise, and spending all day photographing the family allowed me to produce some pretty great work. I’m very honored that this was my 3rd wedding with the family and think this my best wedding work yet!

 

Enjoy!

New Orleans And My 35mm

Family.

That’s probably the only thing I love more than traveling and photography. So imagine how pleased I was when M surprised me with a trip to New Orleans on behalf of me graduating with my Masters of Fine Art.

It was my first time down south and New Orleans did not disappoint. And I definitely did not forget to bring my Pentax 35mm camera.

While New Orleans may have been a little trashier than I anticipated, I still felt like a Charlie Bucket entering Willy Wonka’s factory for the first time. The architecture, the attitude, the people and new friends we made, the plant life, THE FOOD, all of it was all so overwhelmingly wonderful.

Needless to say, M and I traveled as much as we could around the city. From walking all over the French Quarter, and through the Tremé. Up Esplanade Street to City Park and touring the New Orleans Museum of Art, and spending hours over in the Garden District looking at the beautiful homes and cemeteries. We even rented a car and visited the swamps on our last day which was ended up being one of my favorite moments of the trip.

I can talk forever about what we did (we rented a room from AirBnB from Lauren, a bad ass graphic designer with an amazing dog) but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Next post, I’ll show you the photos I took from my phone….which sounds much more lame than I anticipated but are cool nonetheless!

As If! A Totally 90′s Clueless Birthday Party Photo Shoot!

I can’t believe it took me this long to post these but I’ve FINALLY gotten around to doing so…

Here are some photos from my birthday party that I had in January. I threw a costume party and the theme was Clueless/ 90′s. M and I dressed as Cher and Dion and everyone else pretty much killed it with their outfits.

I’ll leave it at that. Enjoy!

Fun With 4×5

The other week, when M and I went to NY for Passover, we made a pit stop to see our friends in Astoria, Queens. For fun, I brought some black and white 4×5 film and the camera and set out to take some portraits of my dashingly handsome friends.

The results are below! With an accidental double exposure, and an Old Hollywood glamour shot, I’m very pleased with the way these photos came out. I got some good looking friends if I do say so myself!

Enjoy!

Mama Michelle

A couple of weeks ago, M and I were invited by our dear friend Will (aka Wilma) to go up to Maine and visit his mother Michelle. Michelle, along with her husband, had recently acquired a 38 acre farm known as Back Fields Farm that specializes in maple syrup production. The three of us, along with our other friend Mike, journeyed up north and spent the entire day meeting Will’s parents and family friends, all of whom contribute to the farm in some way or another.

The weather was spectacular as was Michelle’s house which was newly renovated and looks like an English countryside home come to life.

Chickens, barnyards, a cemetery and all the syrup you could ever want. Needless to say, the photo opportunities were endless.

Enjoy!

Friends, Snow and Robert Caygeon

Our visit to Toronto concluded with an amazing trip up north to Bobcaygeon where we spent the day and night with our good friends Carly, John, Leah, Jen, Meredith and Missy.

We ended up eating great food, walking on the frozen water, and drinking endlessly. M and I found ourselves surrounded by wonderful new friends that will now be a staple to our next visits to Toronto.

 

Enjoy!
