You can’t help but smile when this guy greets you at the hospital door.
I was very surprised to see a familiar face during the State of the Union address. As the President discussed additional funding for the battle against childhood cancer he introduced 10 year old Grace Eline. Grace was sitting in the gallery next to the First Lady.
A few months ago I photographed Grace at her New Jersey home for Rutgers Cancer Institute. You can see the video interview below.

For the past few years I’ve produced a video profiling the new president of the New Jersey Bar Association. We had a great time attending his firm’s St. Patrick’s Day party followed by a series of interviews in Red Bank and New Brunswick.
For this executive portrait I was able to take advantage of the setting sun streaming in through the office windows. We had already taken a series of portraits and headshots so it was time to take a few more dramatic photos. For this one a gridded Profoto B1 and the sunset was all we needed.
After a full day photo shoot on the LIU Brooklyn campus we walked over to Brooklyn Bridge park with a few students. Since the school is located in the heart of NYU it's important to show New York landmarks in the school's marketing. It was a perfect way to end a great photo shoot.
A great background is so important for a dynamic environmental corporate portrait. The sky was reflecting off the glass exterior of this building in New Brunswick, so that was a perfect spot. I was able to place the executive in the shade so he was very relaxed, resulting in a dynamic executive corporate portrait.
Fordham University loves to show the area surrounding their New York City campus. For this portrait we walked a few blocks from campus and photographed a student sitting on a neighborhood brownstone.
We then photographed her with the classic New York street scene, complete with a taxi in the background.
Everything came together so nicely for this executive portrait photo shoot. The conference room was on the right side of the building, the sky was a gorgeous blue and the sun was setting.
It's always a good day when you can spend the afternoon photographing at a New Jersey winery. This cover story was about a group of Rutgers graduates who run their own wine companies. The've had a lot of success, especially considering their young age. We photographed them throughout the facility and the barrel photo was chosen for the cover
One of the most exciting aspects of shooting environmental portraits is using the elements you find at the location. I arrived early for this portrait in Newark's Military Park and saw the sun reflecting off Prudential's headquarters building. Add a blue sky and a chair and we are all set.
It's always important to feature a school's marquis facilities. This photo features a Fordham University student in the school's high tech trading room.
It was important to make the computer screens look dynamic. Our subjects pink sweater was a perfect compliment to the blue screens.

While nice soft light from a Profoto strobe lit the executive a gorgeous sunset provided a very pretty background.
I had the opportunity recently to photograph actor Andy Serkis for USA Today. Andy plays Snoke in The Force Awakens.
As with most celebrity photo shoots I arrived early to the New York City hotel suite where the shoot was scheduled. This gave me time to figure out how I was going to photograph Andy and begin setting up my lights.
Andy arrived right on time and was a pleasure to work with. Check out his computer assisted characters in Star Wars, Planet of the Apes and The Hobbit, really amazing stuff.
