nyc state of mind

Two months ago I went to NYC to study at Magnum Studios with the amazing Alessandra Sanguinettie. I went at the tail end of my busiest wedding season to date and snuck it in between two weddings, a myriad of photo commissions and a destination wedding / family vacation. There is something about nyc that seems to reset me, oh it sounds like that Alicia Keys song but it is true. It clears my brain, it makes me push myself and reinvent and look at things differently. New York overloads my senses and then makes me dig down to the inner quiet inside myself and come back up for air.

I was there to shoot a photo essay, which I’ll share soon, but here are a few frames I took walking about the city.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
