New York City - Snow at Night
We wander through streets
the scattered remnants
of the sky’s memories:
the weight of hope
that bears down
as we walk
with our faces turned
towards the city night’s stars
that lead our way
into the melted light
I have been going through my large collection of city snow photographs for a current client. What I love the most about snow at night is the timeless quality it imparts to the city. It’s the leveler of time in some respects.
And speaking of current projects, I am back in the thick of working on my New York City photography book after spending a few days in Las Vegas this week speaking at WPPI on all three days of the Expo on the Sony stage.
The experience was a whirlwind of activity and I came back on the red-eye flight to New York City earlier this morning feeling incredibly inspired and hopeful for some very, very, very exciting things that are now being planned thanks to some really wonderful encounters with people at WPPI (more on all of that as events unfold).
But most of all I am extremely grateful for the experience. Thank you to Sony for giving me this opportunity! And I also wanted to sincerely thank all of the super cool people who sat through my presentations and who connected with me afterwards or during the duration of the conference.

News Update: I will be speaking at WPPI in Las Vegas next week (info below)
I will be giving a presentation at WPPI in Las Vegas on the stage at the Sony booth on all three days of the Expo: March 3rd - March 5th. My presentation will be about social media and how to utilize social media to grow and sustain your photography business and career.
I have to say that I am really looking forward to this. I have been deeply entrenched in the process of writing and editing my photography book since I am nearing the final stretch of the first part of the project. So this should be a fun and exciting change of pace.
I always find giving presentations and attending events to be a great way to stock up on creative fuel since I get to connect with other wonderful people about photography. Very often so many of the encounters I have at photography events have inspired creative growth and friendships.
If you will be attending WPPI, come and say hello. And if you have some time in your schedule maybe stay a while and listen to me talk about the wonders of social media as it relates to the business of photography. I promise I will try my best to be entertaining and informative :)

New York City - Rain at Night
When I first started delving into photography, one of the earliest conundrums I remember reading about involved the debate between technical perfection and artistic license. It always struck me as an odd topic, particularly since I have always approached my photography as a means to express emotion and mood rather than a way to highlight technical prowess.
It’s difficult to say that there is one right way to approach art since all art is subjective. It’s important though to figure out what you are trying to express. Are you trying to express a…continue reading here…

New York City - Winter Night - West Village
Winter nights open their arms up to those who walk through city streets strewn with glinting white embers: alabaster sparks left over from clenched-fist hopes that burst from eager palms onward and upwards into the sky.
Winter nights are the feeling you get when you are wrapped in a blanket as memories and scenes from all the other lives you will live and have lived play on the back of your eyelids like a fever-dream cinematic sequence.
Winter nights in New York City wrap themselves around you like a cocoon surrounding you with the sweetest of silences as trees spin their branches like webs over streets held down by the barest hint of gravity.
And we walk through the city like somnambulists moving through an otherworldly landscape: gliding through the white remnants of dream-laden clouds slowly with our faces drawn to street lights that hang over streets like stars leading our way back to the places we rest our heads.
