"Jazz & Colors" is one of New York’s best events: 30 up-and-coming jazz bands jammin’ throughout Central Park. Loved it last year, and it was even better this year. For me, the combination of live jazz, autumnal colors and Central Park is a serene, soul-stirring, unstoppable combination. Love it…

Photo Gallery: 7th Annual Dance Parade Pt. 1 (10 photos)
One of New York City’s most vibrant events, Dance Parade is exactly what it sounds like: over 10,000 dancers, representing over 75 styles of dance, performing down Broadway. I always enjoy attending…and photographing…this wonderful celebration of culture, ethnic pride and dance!
PHOTO GALLERY: Mumford & Sons in concert. Barclays Center, Brooklyn NY (10 photos)
England’s wildly popular folk rock band Mumford & Sons played the first of two sold-out shows at Barclays Center, much to the delight of their New York fans. Their energy was infectious!
PHOTO GALLERY: Broadway Boxing at BB King’s Blues Club (10 photos)
I’ve long been a boxing fan, so it was a thrill to photograph bouts at BB King’s Blues Club in NYC…especially the female boxers. Loved the intimacy of the venue, but the sparse lighting made this a very difficult…but ultimately fulfilling…photo shoot.
PHOTO GALLERY: St. John’s vs. Notre Dame at Madison Square Garden (10 photos)
Terrific…and intense…game as underdog St. John’s upset #20 Notre Dame, 67-63. Gotta say, I’m quickly becoming a fan of college basketball. It’s a different kind of intensity…a different kind of hunger…than you find in the NBA. And that goes for the fans, too!
PHOTO GALLERY: Coldplay in concert at Barclays Center, Brooklyn NY (10 photos)
Coldplay is a band that knows how to please…and amaze…their fans. The first three songs alone were a visual feast of colorful lasers, huge bouncing balls and confetti…LOTS of confetti. And charismatic lead singer Chris Martin was the perfect complement to all this, full of energy and exaltation. Good times!
PHOTO GALLERY: Temple vs. Syracuse at Madison Square Garden (10 photos)
As a sports/concert photographer, my dream of sitting on the floor of The Garden to shoot an event came true today. And what an event it was: the Gotham Classic, pitting #3 Syracuse vs. unranked (and huge underdog) Temple. The game was fantastic, with Temple pulling a huge upset, winning 83-79 and handing Syracuse their first loss of the season. Here are my favorite shots…
I was extremely flattered when the wonderful folks at camera/electronic store Abe’s of Maine contacted me…and invited me to write an article about photography! I chose a subject close to my heart. Hope you enjoy "Getting Started with iPhoneography…and Instagram!"
PHOTO SET: Barclays Center Opening Night/Red Carpet!
If you live in the NYC area, you’ve no doubt heard about Brooklyn’s new sports & entertainment arena, the high-tech, ultra-modern Barclays Center. With the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, Barbra Streisand, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and other top acts on the way, it’s poised to rival Madison Square Garden as THE place to perform in the New York area.
Here are red carpet photos from Barclays’ highly-anticipated opening night…featuring a concert by rapper (and Brooklyn Nets co-owner) Jay Z….
PhotoSet: New York Liberty vs. Connecticut Sun
As a photographer for BrooklynFans.com, I’ve been shooting a lot of sports lately…and loving it. So as a die-hard fan of the WNBA and the New York Liberty since Day 1, it was a dream come true to sit on the court with other sports photographers and shoot the game! As always with the Liberty, it was a fun, exciting night. Want to read the article I wrote re-capping the game? Check it out here!
PhotoSet: New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana…
I’ve been doing a lot of sports photography the past few months for BrooklynFans.com, and one of the highlights was shooting Johan Santana, who pitched a no-hitter for the NY Mets earlier this season. After suffering an injury, Santana pitched for the minor league Brooklyn Cyclones as part of his rehabilitation. Here are some of the photos from that game…
MONTREAL 2012: STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
Thoroughly enjoyed this friendly, diverse, low-key city. Here, street art, candid moments and architecture capture the good, the bad and the ugly of Montreal, Canada.
Here’s a terrific video, created by BrooklynFans.com, all about the 30th Annual Mermaid Parade at Brooklyn’s Coney Island. It combines photos I shot of the parade with an interview of Dick Zigun, “the Mayor of Coney Island”…and creator of the parade! Enjoy!
30th ANNUAL MERMAID PARADE
Every year, Brooklyn’s Coney Island hosts the Mermaid Parade…a celebration of all things naughty and nautical! Always an infectious vibe of happiness, humor and hot summer lovin’ fun!
