Ross Lynch and R5 at The Empire State Building

Those crazy kids from R5 just rock my world! Always fun to go up to the observatory at The Empire State building and shoot celebs and check out those undies! I think Elmo was my favorite although I'm not sure if it was the real Elmo or one of those Times Square impostors.

Ronnie Vannucci, The Killers. Modern Drummer cover shoot. February 2013

This shot is one of those images that I didn't realize was as good as it was but that my amazing editor Scott plucked out of my edit and ran with. I love the shot. The rim lighting around Ronnie's head was done with a remote strobe I set up back there. As I moved around I couldn't tell if I was going to get completely flared out or get what I was aiming for. Between Ronnie moving as he was playing and me moving around and trying different angles there were a lot of variables. They really came together in this image. More images and portraits of Ronnie in my Photoshelter Archive

Kiss at SiriusXM Monster Town Hall

The scene outside of SiriusXM was a madhouse.                              

Guess who's in the photo booth. The shots that Paul Stanley did in the booth were amazing. Every shot was different and he came up with something interesting for each one. That's not easy when you have like a second between flashes. 

 Some of the approved shots of Kiss. Paul Stanley , Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer at SiriusXM's Town hall on 10/11/12.

Masahiro Morimoto Iron chef cooks some comfort food at Canvas

Two lights here, one off to the right and behind him Gobo'd for the rim lighting and separation, another off to the left and in front with a diffusion filter for main light and fill.  The background was the restaurant's signature wallpaper which was a tiny strip of wall covering but just enough to fill the frame. Very happy with the way this turned out. Shot for the Pulse Section of The New York Post on August 22nd. It made the inside cover of the section when it ran.

The Weight of a Life

It draws you in. You start to look at it and realize there is more to it than FUCK YOU TOO and then you wonder what else there is to find in it. So you look and realize there's a lot more there than you thought at first. There are details you didn't see the first time around and then you realize there are details you didn't see the 10th time.

Roger Waters of Pink Floyd at SiriusXM Town Hall June 27, 2012

What a penultimate thrill to meet Roger Waters, one of my idols and get to work with him. His interview during the SiriusXM Town Hall with Jim Ladd was fascinating. Various moments of the dialogue would immediately conjure songs that I've known and listened to for most of my life. Like the moment when he said 'charade' in that special way he pronounces it and 'Ha ha! Charade you aarree!' 
from Pigs popped into my head. He used the word 'lunatic' a number of times as well which of course triggers memories of some of the greatest Pink Floyd / rock songs ever written. In case the lyrics to his songs ever left you wondering if all of what's his written is for real, try and listen to one of his interviews one day. He is fascinating. On top of everything else I realized that I own the same ring he is wearing.

Alex Schibli the King of Rats Island for The New York Post Pulse cover and jump

Alex Schibli bought an island in the New York Archepelegio that he can call his own and we went out there in canoes and rowboats to shoot his family having a picnic on it. It was hot, the rowboat paddles gave me blisters. The shoot was scheduled for 12 noon, probably the worst time of day lighting wise. In short it was rough. I had to use fill flash to deal with the harsh shadows and the heat was intense. Still in the end it worked out ( have some minor emotional scars from the experience but nothing too bad) and  it made the cover of The Pulse section of the New York Post today and the jump which helps with the healing process alot.

Amanda Palmer connects with her fans in The New York Times

Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls celebrated her record breaking kickstarter campaign at The Loft in Brooklyn with her band Grand Theft Orchestra and her husband Neil Gaiman and a large group of adoring fans.  The gallery has some of the pictures that got away and didn't run in the article published June 6, 2012 including this portrait which I love. This was a single strobe with soft box off to the left on a remote cord and a long exposure to catch the ambient light bouncing off the water tower silos behind her. I felt like they added a Bladerunner aspect to the image and love the effect.
