2014 Was A Great Year.

Three days ago I wrapped up 2014 by photographing a billionaire in his stunning World Trade Center office. This year was amazing and I could not be more grateful for all the awesome people I was able to work with and work for. Thanks so much to everyone at Philadelphia magazine, New York Observer, Drexel Alumni, and many more.

Here are some of my favorites from the year.

Larry Silverstein for Commercial Observer

Last week I was contacted by the Commercial Observer to photograph billionaire Larry Silverstein. Larry is the 83-year-old chairman of the Silverstein Properties and master leaseholder and developer of the World Trade Center. 

I had 3 minutes of Larry's time and here is what we got. Enjoy!

Nadine Johnson for New York Observer

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to photograph PR legend Nadine Johnson for the New York Observer. Nadine was very very busy and only was able to give me about 5 minutes of her time, so my setup had to be super simple. My key light was a 2'x2' soft box with a grid and for fill i bounced a strobe off the back white wall. 

Here are the results.

John Dougherty for Philly Mag

Last month I was contacted by Philadelphia Magazine to photograph the Business Manager of Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers , John Dougherty. I had about 15 minutes with John so I used only 1 light the whole shoot. I am super happy with how these came out. Enjoy!

Russell James for New York Observer

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing the famed photographer Russell James at Pier59 Studios . It's always nerve racking photographing other photographers, but Russell was an absolute joy to work with. Here are a few photos we got in the 10 minutes I had with Russell.

Philadelphia's 75 Most Powerful People

A few months ago I was given the opportunity to photograph the cover and cover story for Philadelphia Magazine’s April issue. The story was on Philadelphia’s 75 most influential people. It was an amazing experience being able to photograph people such as M. Night Shyamalan, Dr. William Hite the superintendent of the Philadelphia School District, Amy Gutmann the president of Penn University, Brian Roberts the CEO of Comcast, Stephen Starr, and more. 

Here are some tears from the publication.

Photoshoot for New York Observer

Last week I was contacted by the photo editor of The New York Observer. She had asked me to photograph the cover story focusing on billionaires and celebrities blissing out as transcendental meditation charges back into the mainstream. 

My team and I woke up at 3am to drive into New York City for a 7am shoot time. Upon arrival, we scouted out some great locations in the Financial District and prepared ourselves for the talent to arrive. 

Here are a few photos from the shoot as well as a BTS video created by Brinton Duncan.

James Fuhrman

A few months ago I had the opportunity to photograph James Fuhrman. James is an amazing sculptor that makes beautiful works of art. 

In this series of photos I photographed James in his home studio and really tried to capture who he is, which is a fun, energetic, creative genius. 

James is Pictured above standing next to the beginning of his latest sculpture. It does not look like much now but will eventually be 7ft tall and made completely of wood. 

Below James was explaining his sculptures to me and contemplating on how to fix a mistake on the sculpture above.

The images above and below are of James fixing his mistake, which was a very tedious process. With just the smallest mis cut he could throw off the whole flow and have to start from scratch again. 

Stay tuned for more work. 

Ryan Hyde

The other week I had the opportunity to photograph Ryan Hyde from R.Hyde Guitars. Ryan is a mastermind when it comes to building custom guitars and basses. Some of things Ryan can do is build electric guitars and basses, plus a range of repairs and customizations. He has standard models that can be customized in terms of wood, electronics, number and spacing of strings, etc. Custom shape inquiries are also welcome.

Here are some photos we made in his shop. Enjoy.
