Greetings from Los Angeles / Malibu…
Recently, a client asked me to shoot some “ubiquitous” images of New York… Being a life-long new yorker, i figured this would be NOOOOO PROBLEM. However, i realized it was MUCH harder than i previously thought! I had to think like a “tourist” for a few days and try to rediscover everything. I’m not sure how i feel about these images (these are just a few from one day), but i had a really fun time pretending to be a visitor for a while :)
for starters: Being asked to take photographs for SAVEUR is (i know i say this all the time, but…) a TRUE HONOR. It’s the kind of client you could only HOPE to shoot for when you’re first starting out. To work with them is literally a dream come true.
for seconds: i think this might be my favorite shot i’ve taken all year? What a cool mom with a cool kitchen :)
Shocked, Stunned, and really saddened to hear that Jan Groover has died :(
Only 68?? And to think that Eve Arnold just died at a ripe old 99!
Jan paved the way for someone like me to even HOPE to pick up a camera and shoot. Without her presence, influence, bravery and talent, someone like me would literally NOT EXIST. Nor would a market and industry to embrace someone like me…
Whatever happens to you after you die, i hope Jan gets to fly FIRST CLASS. A huge influence on me and anyone who’s ever seriously loved a camera.

Guess who was shooting on the observation deck at The Empire State Building? Life is good :)
