Colorado

Last week I took a trip out to Colorado to spend some time with a few friends and of course to do some snowboarding. I rode at Beaver Creek, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin and every day had great conditions. My last day at Beaver Creek I was in knee deep powder the entire time and I cold not have been happier. When I ride, I just bring my GoPro Hero 4 and Iphone with me to take photos since I […]

Lake Wallenpaupack Weekend

Since I had Monday off work, Nina and I decided to spend President’s Day Weekend at Lake Wallenpauck exploring some new hiking trails. We hiked Devil’s Hole Trail in Paradise Valley, PA on Sunday where we found some old ruins in the woods and then grilled some delicious ribeye steaks while we watched the stars. All day I was using my Canon EOS 5D and my 24-70mm 2.8. I really love getting away from city life every once and a […]

Sebastian joins the family!

A few weeks back I got a 9-month old African Spur Thighed Tortoise or Sulcata as they are also known as. We named him Sebastian and he has been an absolute delight to live with and he brightens out day. He is obsessed with Kale and refuses to eat anything but the freshest greens like a true spoiled child. We recently took him to Westwood Pets in Westwood, NJ to meet Soupy, an 18 year old Sulcata who has grown […]

Sunday Engagement Shoot

Yesterday I did an engagement photo shoot with some close friends of mine from my home town of Mahwah, NJ. As it happens, they have recently moved to Jersey City as well so we chose Liberty State Park for the location and we could not have asked for better weather either. I love working with clients whom I already know because they are so comfortable with me and I know their story as a couple too. Mike and Mandy have […]

Top of the Rock

For the last month I have been quite ill so I was unable to get out and take photos, let alone explore. (Hence no blog posts for the last several weeks) ┬áNow that I am finally feeling better, Nina surprised me with tickets to Top of the Rock at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan. We got there early to get some lunch and get a good spot for sunset. I was switching between my Canon 70-200mm 2.8, 24-70mm 2.8, and […]

The Brew Hop 5k and Beer Fest

Today I was the photographer for The Brew Hop 5k and Beer Fest, another event put together by Peak Projects. There was a great turnout and despite the weather forecast, there was some beautiful weather as well. There were some impressive performances by the runners as well and the line for BareBurger would say that they saw a pretty great audience as well (myself included). I was shooting on my Canon EOS 5D mark iii and most of the time […]

New York Fashion Week

Last weekend I had the incredible opportunity to work with Vivre Couture for New York Fashion Week. They were premiering their new line and celebrating their first time on the Red Carpet. After the runway, We brought some of the models outside into Times Square for a photoshoot amidst the traffic and crowds. I was using my Canon EOS 5D Mark III all day with my Canon 70-200mm 2.8 II for the runway and the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 for portraits. […]

Labor Day At the Lake

I spent my Labor day weekend upstate with my dad, a few friends, and of course My Canon 5D and my 50mm 1.2. It was a more relaxing weekend than usual with less adventures and exploring and more time spent editing in the tent and playing with my camera. I’ve eaten nothing but hot dogs and egg sandwiches for the last 72 hours and I must say, I don’t hate it. Between shooting guns, building bonfires and shucking clams we […]

Flatiron Friday with my new 50mm

I recently added the Canon 50mm 1.2 USM L-series lens to my arsenal and I could not be happier with it. Coming from a lot of experience with zoom lenses, I wanted to focus on prime lenses for portraits and weddings this summer as well. The image quality is absolutely stunning and the bokeh at f1.2 is as smooth as silk. I brought it with me to work last Friday and explored outside the office on my lunch break. If […]

Exploring Brooklyn

Despite the 90 degree temperatures, Nina and I walked across the Brooklyn bridge after work on Friday and caught the sunset from the park after walking around DUMBO and taking pictures. I was using my canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 USM and 70-200mm 2.8 USM II. No matter where I am going I always try to bring my 70-200mm with me since it yields such incredible quality photos despite the size and weight. We stuffed […]
