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.

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.

Take the M Train

Another photograph from my ongoing Bushwick project.  I really love shooting at night. There is something so other worldy about the way light is and the effect the long exposures have on the photographs.
