Monroe St Water Fight

The following are just of some kids on my street taking advantage of the fire hydrant water on a scorching summer day. These kids are all absolutely adorable and I had a great time photographing them for about two hours or so. I tried my best to stay dry but they totally soaked me!

I love flowers.

Fields of Flowers

Fields of Flowers

I couldnt sleep last night. My mind just keeps racing, my body stays awake, it's 100 plus degrees in our apartment with no air conditioning and I couldn't breathe. I got in my car and drove and drove and drove, something I haven't done in months. As the sun was coming up I finally turned around, after 4 hours of driving. I saw these flowers right before I got back on the highway in the direction of Brooklyn. I had to stop to capture them and because I only have a 24mm lens I had to walk allllll the way through a field for this. It was worth it.

This is Ashleigh, and she is living proof that sad, broken hearted girls, are the most beautiful.

Sad girls are always more beautiful

She Needed It

& yes, I like to go to the park. A lot. ;D

Sarah and I met at a thai noodle place in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I took a few other ones of her, but this totally sums up Sarah and how it is to be a RCC Photo Student in the Big City. Love you, ya BFD

Noelle & Richie

Circle of Death Family Style & M&M's


My Loves
This portrait is totally impromptu but I saw the lighting on them and loved it. I used my SB-800flash and my SB29 extended to the upper right side of them, and two fill cards. This was the only photo in the group where it seems like my siblings traded personalities. Richie is always the goofy, Jim Carrey-esque one, while Noelle is more laid back and chill. I know you're supposed to differentiate between "good" pictures and "emotional" pictures, but sometimes, they are just one in the same.

Escape From The City


On one of the fashion shoots I went on as a light assistant I ended up getting lost in the woods. So typical.

Escape To Grandma's

After working 70+ hours a week, I decided to take the day off and go to my Grandma Gen's down at the Jersey Shore...

Sunset to Dusk Surfers



Before I left the next morning my Grandmother and I went out to eat. This woman means the world to me, and is the one who just bought me my new D3. I have nothing but love and admiration for her, and I always have, regardless of fancy expensive presents. She won't let me take photos of her, so I just held the camera on the table and shot when she wasn't noticing.. they came out pretty good ;D



Strawberry (& Blueberry) Pancakes!!!

That Night I went to Point Pleasant Beach, which is where the boardwalk is, and where my other Grandfather has a house. I have never in all of my life (I've been coming here since I was in my mother's stomach) I have never seen the boardwalk so desolate. I was just amusing myself by taking photos of the few strangers there. I guess because it was a Monday night and school isn't out up here? Either way...


Skee Ball was my favorite game as a kid at the Arcade
That's My Hand

228 Monroe Street

I'm absolutely exhausted. I just got home from working 14 hours straight with a 30 minute break and only 2 cigarettes allllll day. I just moved into this new apartment in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, and all of my new roommates and their friends were hanging out so I was naturally compelled to show my face and hang out for a while. Of course I used the time to shoot more (I love my new camera, I CAN'T stop).

Concrete Alchemy

Concrete Alchemy; A group of 15 visual artists called Concrete Alchemy painted the wall on Water Street (@ Pearl St) in Dumbo, Brooklyn, on Thursday and Friday, working steadily both days to complete the 15' H x 50' W wall mural. After collaborating for over 20 hours between the two days of painting, they also took time to do a public discussion panel on the benefits of graffiti; and how if used correctly can serve as beautiful art for the people. I was lucky enough to spend a few hours photographing them on assignment from my boss.

I Buy Myself Flowers, Thank You Very Much

& I Shoot Them Myself, Too

(and yes, they really are that yellow. i broke off the rest of the bouquet's flowers for the budding pollen (shown) and dusted it around. and this is extremely rare for a photographer to give out their secrets, but at risk of looking over saturated from photoshop i must confess them.)
