Dan Bracaglia, our assistant online editor, made this photo at Clearview Horse Farm in Shelbyville, TN, during a media excursion hosted by Sony. He captured this riding demo with the new Sony Alpha 7R and a 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 Sony FE OSS lens zoomed wide to 28mm. An exposure of of 1/800 sec at f/3.5, ISO 500 froze the action.
This one was shot using on 120mm film using a Mamiya 645p and an 80mm f/2.8 lens.
Recording The Lewinskies 1/4
I had the pleasure of shooting a Harmonica Lewinskies' recording session at Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen about a month ago. It was a fascinating view into the creative process of a band that is very much so larger-than-life. Looking forward to jumping into the studio with more bands down the road!

When Oliver Ignatius, Mr. Presidente of Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen, asked me to do a pregnancy shoot with him and first lady Bernadette, I was pretty stoked. Having never photographed a very pregnant couple before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. In the end, we had a blast. And doesn't it just ooze a 1970's-rock-and-roll-vibe? For the nerds: shot with a Mamiya 645 on Kodak Portra 800.
Shot for The Star Ledger.
Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen Spaghetti Western #24
Thanks for the good times [and shitty lighting]. <3 Dan
Dan Bracaglia, our assistant Web editor, shot this at a family barbecue using the Olympus Pen E-P5; exposure, 1/800 sec at f/4, ISO 2500. The lens? A 12–35mm f/2.8 Panasonic Lumix G X Vario, zoomed to 23mm (46mm equivalent). He added some contrast in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.
I had a great time this past weekend hanging out at the South Street Seaport, where I shot the Village Voice's 4Knots Festival (and guzzled beers/coconut waters on a boat while eating gourmet hot dogs). What follows are a couple highlights from the fest. See the whole gallery of images over on JerseyBeat.com. [This photo: Parquet Courts]
In the studio with Hunter & Wolfe
I spent some time hanging out with Hunter & Wolfe last week, during a recording sessions for their upcoming album.
For more Hunter & Wolfe action, make sure you come out this Friday, June 29th, to Goodbye Blue Monday in Brooklyn.
Hunter & Wolfe take the stage at 11pm. MORE INFO
Andrew WK and Marky Ramone at Santo's
I caught up with the king of partying last Friday at Santo's, alongside the one and only Marky Ramone. The show was the very first stop on a new world tour, titled Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg, which is essentially a two and a half hour Ramone's singalong. Fucking epic. See more over on Brooklyn Vegan.
David Parsons Dance
I recently did a photoshoot for the incredible dancer/choreographer, David Parsons. This image was one of my favorites we came back with. I had originally drawn
up a lighting diagram prior to the shoot, with this look in mind, and was pretty excited when we nailed it. [Photographs taken at new 42nd Street Studios]
I was able to sneak A$AP Rocky away from his security guard for about 3.5 seconds, to make this portrait, during a recent commercial gig. Kodak Portra 800.
The New Art of Spraying and Praying
This photo of Hunter & Wolfe was shot with a Black Magic Cinema Camera. The .DNG file was pulled from the video folder and processed like I would any other RAW file with LR and PS.
So, this is what happens when I try to do fashion photography. More on this soon...
Channeled my inner Ed Templeton for this one.
Chey is not only incredibly supportive of my work, she is a terrific model too. Although I really have no idea how this photo came to be. Kodak Portra 800.

"Classic street shooter"
Our assistant online editor, Dan Bracaglia, took this candid portrait of his girlfriend Cheyenne Morgan outside of New York City’s Bowery Ballroom using a Leica M Monochrom and a 35mm f/1.4 Leica Summilux-M ASPH lens. His exposure: 1/30 sec at f/1.4, ISO 6400.
Andrew WK Superbowl Halftime Show
I recently shot Andrew WK's Superbowl party halftime show at Santo's Party House for Brooklyn Vegan (gallery can be seen HERE). Easily the most epic night of 2013 thus far. MC Todd (the dude in the hat) and Aleister X (dude in the sweatband) also joined Mr. WK on stage.
