New York based photographer with a focus on black and white, landscapes, cloudscapes, cityscapes...urban and nature, landscapes and candid portraits.
I have developed a style I call "Gotham".
Manipulation of light and dark to the extremes...creating dramatic images.
Background and Influences:
Ansel Adams is my hero.
I picked up on photo composition watching films because I'm a cinephile.
I saw my first Hitchcock movie at 10, Coppola, De Palma, Scorsese all by 13.
Then there was Kubrick, Fincher, Malick...
The list is enormous.
25 years ago, while watching a movie with a few close friends (Sunthar, Mike, Jeff and Boom) I remember calling out a shot I found beautiful during the movie, to which my friend Sunthar remarked:
"Dude...get this guy a camera!"
I never thought bout picking up a camera before that. It sat in my head for years.
I bought my first DSLR in 2008…the rest is here.
Hope you enjoy.
