Midtown Office

Here’s another shoot for Montroy Anderson Demarco in collaboration with Wilk Marketing Communications.  This is the New York office of ICM Partners one of the world’s largest talent and literary agencies.  It’s quite possibly the most beautiful office I’ve ever photographed.  The floor, the chandelier and all those books.

Beautiful Art Gallery

Another beautiful project photographed for architect Joel Sanders.  This is the gallery at D. Wigmore Fine Art in Carnegie Hall Tower.  It’s always a pleasure to photograph a space that I enjoy being in as much as I do photographing it.

Frost Science Center – Miami

I’m grateful to have been dispatched to Miami and escape the Brooklyn winter.  This project was photographed for two clients; Potion Design and RAA.

Here’s another view of the space this time with some kids triggering the dance floor.

Community Living in Brooklyn

Happy New Year

Recently I’ve been working with Node, a company that is re-imagining community living, where residents connect, meet and collaborate locally and globally.  Their buildings are comprised of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments that are fully furnished and decorated.  Node works with local architects, interior designers and furniture makers to give their residences a style that reflects the history of the building and its local area.

Here’s a recent shoot from a brand new renovated building at 163 St. Nicholas Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Day at Jupiter

Jupiter-0061-HighResHere’s a recent shoot of Jupiter Entertainment’s Manhattan office for Montroy Anderson DeMarco in collaboration with Wilk Marketing and Communications. 

Jupiter-0147-HighResPhotographing the office area required a lot of work in front of the camera.  Every chair, phone and computer had to be perfectly placed.  The scooter was a last second add on.

Jupiter-0078-HighResCapturing the commissary in one photograph required a very wide lens which distorted the space losing it’s essence.  To get the whole space without distortion, three shots were taken with a narrower lens then stitched together in Photoshop after.

A Space Without Art

This beautiful Manhattan interior was designed by architect Joel Sanders for GLSEN a non-profit championing LGBTQ issues in K-12 education.

This shoot presented a frequent problem.  The space is ready to be photographed but the artwork has yet to come in.  Most of the time the easiest thing to do is wait.  That wasn’t an option in this case.

We knew that one wall would have a mural of hands joining, symbolizing GLSEN’s values, and another a collage of LGBTQ pioneers.

Both pieces of art had to be created from scratch after the shoot and applied to the walls at multiple angles in Photoshop.

Time Machine

No, not a time machine.  These photographs were made at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in Manhattan for Potion Design.

The exhibit is a replica of an apartment where a real life Puerto Rican family lived on the Lower East Side in the 1970’s.

Beautiful Bath and Shower

Aerial-252-7th-Ave-0120-HighRes-LowRes

This beautiful bathroom was shot for Aerial Design Build. While we photographed the entire Manhattan apartment, this was the showpiece for my client.

There were two problems. The first problem was the size of the room. I was only able to get a couple of feet from the shower door which made it impossible to get it all in one frame. To solve this, I made three separate photographs of the bath area. One down the center one on the top and one on the bottom. Those three photographs were then stitched together later in Photoshop. 

The second problem was reflections. Because I was shooting through glass there were distracting reflections everywhere. My polarizer wasn’t doing the job, so every little refection was removed in Photoshop after the shoot.

Needless to say, the client was very happy.

Subterranean Farm

Farm-One-0044-LowRes

I was recently hired by Farm One to photograph their subterranean farm located two stories below street level in Manhattan.  The climate controlled space is very small and 75% of it is occupied by the large shelves where the rare herbs grow hydroponically. 

The challenge was how to capture the entire space in one photograph.  Even with my widest lens, I couldn’t get it all in one frame.  The solution: three separate photographs made on site and then stitching them together later in Photoshop.
