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 […]

Luray caverns

While going through my photos from our trip to Shenandoah National Park, I found some shots from Luray Caverns in Virginia. It was an amazing place, with some formations that were over 7 million years old. And it is crazy to think how long it had been there before someone stumbled upon it. Nature really amazes me sometimes and it makes capturing it with my camera that much better. I was shooting on my Canon 5D Mark III with my […]

Shenandoah National Park, VA

A few weeks back, Nina and I drove down to Virginia to explore Shenandoah National Park and do some hiking and camping. Saturday, we did the 9 mile round trip hike of Old Rag Mountain which was truly breathtaking at the top but murder on my legs. Rainy and cloudy afternoons made for one one of the most epic sunsets I have ever seen in my life on Sunday night as well. After sending my days in the city, it […]

Backstreet Cafe Shoot

Last weekend I spent Sunday afternoon at the Backstreet cafe in New Milford, NJ taking photos for their website and advertising. The owners, Kim and Tom Phelan are some of the nicest people you’ll meet and the food was awesome as well. The best part was getting to eat everything after the photos were done! I used my Canon ESO 5D markiii and EF 16-35mm 2.8II with the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT flash. I just got a Gary Fong flash diffuser […]

Run the Hook

Last weekend I was the photographer for Run The Hook, a 5k/ 10k race at Sandy Hook National Park. It was a sold out event and there was great turnout of runners braving the strong winds and finishing with some impressive times. The crowd was great and cheered everyone on and made for some great photos as well. After devouring a pulled pork grilled cheese from Hog Heaven, I did some step and repeat photos of the runners and explored […]

Mother’s Day Hike

I brought my Canon 5D Mark III and my Canon 70-200mm 2.8 II along with me for a Mother’s Day hike on Sunday. Jonah joined us as well and behaved pretty well in between barking and trying to eat everything off the ground. Blessed with some awesome weather that made for perfect lighting when it came to portraits, it proved to be a great day. I am consistently impressed with the 70-200mm 2.8 lens when it comes to portraits and […]
