Magazine cover for Rutgers University

One of the best aspects of photo assignments for Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences is the variety of fields of study. 

The school's weather lab now hosts WNBC's StormTracker 4 Doppler radar. Students have full access the cutting edge technology. 

An approaching heavy rainstorm made for a very cool image on the screen. That was the good news. The bad news is the storm arrived on campus just as we finished the shoot.  Although we were completely drenched heading back to the cars at least we captured a cool image.

Corporate portraits for Fordham University

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a series of portraits for a Fordham University fundraising campaign. We photographed a number of students and alumni. This photo session took place on campus and in the nearby Columbus Circle and Central Park. 

While the school highlighted a variety of people in the marketing campaign we tried to make each portrait look similar by using shallow depth of field and using a narrow stripbox for lighting.

New Jersey executive portrait in New Brunswick

The lobby of accounting firm Withum, Smith and Brown's New Brunswick office made a great backdrop for this executive portrait.

Setting up lights ahead of time made the photo shoot with Withum CEO Bill Hagaman and Withum partner Jim Hannan very smooth and allowed the executives to get back to work very quickly.

Corporate portrait photographer - St. Peter's healthcare group photo

NJ healthcare photographerLooking for a fresh perspective for group photos is always a challenge.                                                     This group photograph for St. Peter's Healthcare magazine was taken from the second floor of the hospital's restaurant. The nice tile floor provided a great background for the portrait. A pair of Profoto B1 strobes provided just the right amount of light.

Corporate photography for IBM with Elmo

I had a chance to meet an American icon on a recent corporate photography shoot for IBM - Elmo.Yes, the real Elmo. The shoot took place at Children's Television Network in New York City. Elmo, being the huge star that he is, arrived with his personal groomer. Elmo is even nicer in real life than he appears on tv. Corporate portrait of Elmo with an IBM executive
