Waiting for Mermaids

Had a last-minute job today…I was asked to shoot at Public School’s Spring 2015 show at Milk Studios today on behalf of Aerosyn-Lex Meštrović, an amazing artist who designed the colorful fabrics used in some of the pieces. 

Pretty amazing day :) 

Scotland could never decide what kind of mood it was in, & I think that’s one of the reasons why it’s so beautiful. 
This shot was a gamble. I’d already bugged my cousin to pull over a few times for photo-ops, & tho I’m sure he wouldn’t have minded one more time I felt like I was being a pest, so I shot this out the car window. The clouds were getting really dark but that mountain kept glowing, it was breathtaking. I’m extra pleased at least one turned out more thank okay.
Sadly I can’t remember what mountain this is, but I don’t believe it’s the one I climbed, Ben A’an. In the next couple of weeks I’ll share more on that…experience…as well as some other photos from my time in Ireland & Scotland.

I’m alive….& sadly not on this beach.

I watched the sun rise twice in Coney Island this weekend, & I’ve decided it’s my favorite time to be there. Just a few swimmers, some people capping off a night of partying, lots of older ladies & gentlemen taking walks, the usual one or two people with metal detectors on the beach, & me. I was there to shoot, so I’d like to go back sans camera to just sit in the sand with a book.

I really love airplanes, & this shot by Adonis is one I’d like hanging on my wall

Elizabeth Weinberg’s photos of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ape-movement coach are fascinating (be sure to click thru to the Telegraph article, too)

There’s something very relaxing about photographing a friend, especially when said friend is a natural in front of the camera.

These are a few favorites from my shoot with Sara.

Sara is a friend whom I met years ago through Tumblr (yet another reason I’m indebted to the platform), so this shoot was extra fun.

A couple of iPhone shots from my shoot with Ellen Hunter NYC yesterday. I’m exhausted but exhilarated.
