Photography

✏️ Like many human beings I like to communicate in one of our oldest languages, drawing, with one of our great tools, photography. I like to feel and notice the world and time I live in and convey something of this to others through pictures that are often taken, sometimes made, always chosen.

πŸ—½ I am based in New York City and am available for hire for portrait, documentary, and event photography, as well as image editing work such as color grading, styling, and restoration. I am fairly good at pointing the camera and releasing the shutter without hesitation while maintaining a good rapport with people in front of the lens, especially in behind-the-scenes situations.
