Sailing on St. Regis Lake

Photographed last summer in the Adirondacks with my Canon 5D. I did a simple preset in Lightroom to bring out the clouds and convert to a strong sepia tone.

This is my wife Nancy's horse, Tys, who lifted his head from grazing in the good grass(cuts back on the mowing) just for a moment to show off his full posture.

This is one of my favorite horses we've ever had on our property, Jesse, a Rocky Mountain horse. He was photographed outdoors with a hanging background. This was shot with a Mamiya 6 and loaded with Tri-X.

The famous Friesian Simon

I thought I would post a couple of my favorite horse photos which for some reason isn't that easy for me. Seems there is one rule that horse people require that drives me crazy. Ears forward! This one was taken at the HITS horse show in Saugerties NY last summer. He looks like he's on the prowl to me.

Wolfie flying by the big guy in Harlem, NY

Sixx Design

I was recently asked to do a portrait of the soon to be really famous Novogratz family of 9. The process of the portrait was to be filmed for their new Bravo Reality show airing next year sometime. Bob and Courtney, the design team behind Sixx Design and their seven kids, were open to just about any of my crazy ideas. I was setting this shot up on the bed to be from above and suddenly was on the floor shooting their feet and thinking about how many shoes they have to buy. Specially for Wolfie the awesome 12 year old basketball star seen above.

"Cue the Deer"

I was working in East Hampton and staying at The Hedges Inn, a Hampton's landmark. Waking up a little too early I left the inn to find some coffee. I wouldn't normally take my camera but it was just sunrise and really a beautiful morning. Right outside the inn there was row of hedges that had connected on the top to form a tunnel. The light was sneaking through since it was a little early in the spring for leaves to have grown. What was crazy is that as soon as I lifted the camera the deer entered at the end of the tunnel. It was kind of "cue the deer". Taken with my Leica R8 and a 35mm lens. Kodak Portra 400 scanned and converted to a sepia tone.
