Back in November I got an email about shooting Marc Horowitz for Commercial Observer. I was stoked to think that they were having me shoot the artist, but it seemed off to me. So I dug around a little bit and found that it would be a fellow New Yorker who just happens to kick ass in the real estate game.

Marc was being featured as he had just leased out the entire Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. PDC is now home to such tenants as A24, WeWork (who is leasing space to Ron Howard and Brian Grazer who will bring their film production company called Imagine Impact).

We were really pressed with time as there was no way of getting any set up time before Marc arrived, so when he arrived, he was ready to get moving. Oscar and I did a quick light test before we started rolling…

So, here we are, simple 3’ Octa off to camera left and we’re ready to roll!


The other night I received an email from Frankie over at Weekly Rap Gods looking to use images of Dres that I had shot as part of a personal project of mine on Hip Hop.

You can see the images and check out the interview over here:

If you’re a true hip hop head, you’ll love all the classic videos of Black Sheep that they added to the interview.



A few days after settling into my new place in Los Angeles, Kaitlyn at Commercial Observer emailed me to see if I could photograph Principal/Managing Director of George Smith Partners, Jonathan Lee at his office in Centruy City.

Here are a few of the selects.


Tomorrow marks my official one month mark for living in LA! It's been pretty incredible so far in so many different aspects. One of the things that I've always loved about Southern California is its architecture and how it still looks so wildly like the 60's, it's something that I'm not used to having grown up on the East Coast.  I'm looking forward to shooting in these locations that have inspired me over the years!

Since my wife grew up out here, we have a large circle of friends and family that are only a stone's throw away, which makes it easy to round folks up to shoot and test setups with... With that being said, here are a couple of images I did with some of the fam.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.


Towards the end of June, I received an email from Andy at NJ Monthly asking me if I would shoot Seth Leavitt, the CEO of Abeles and Heymann in their hot dog factory in Hillside, NJ. How could I pass up such an opportunity??

You may not know the brand, but if you've ever had a dog at Yankee Stadium, chances are you were eating one of theirs. Abeles and Heymann supply Yankee Stadium along with a number of other large stadiums in and around NY/NJ/PA.

With it being such a small operation, we had limited options on where to shoot, especially since they just had a large shipment go out. That killed any shots in the warehouse, but we made due with what we had. Simple one light in a cool location, literally, we were in the cooldown area where the product comes out of a walk in sized oven. Of my 14 years of kitchen experience, I've never experienced such a setup.

And here is what it looked like in the magazine.
