About

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am a professional photographer, painter, and partner at Axis Films, and I love to collaborate with friends and clients.  I live and work in Brooklyn, NY, but travel pretty much everywhere.  Don’t hesitate to comment on anything that you dig or despise on here!

Thanks, and have an awesome day!

There Are No Survivors

This is a new painting I completed the end of May 2012 entitled There Are No Survivors.  Mixed media on panel, 48″ x 48″  In an unrelated matter, I accepted my invitation to art.sy today and I don’t know why.

Joshua Cody Pictures

Its always fun to photograph Josh!  If you haven’t read his book yet, you should!  Check it out here.  We did the top picture in Joshua’s apartment, at his desk where he writes.  The bottom image was made in my place in Brooklyn.

The New York Group Show, Rebellion and Empowerment in Contemporary Art, was a roaring success, and I was happy to participate by hanging this new painting.  Many thanks to Kianga Ellis for organizing the show.  The piece on the left is by Brian Dupont.

Everest

The talented band Everest was in Chicago performing at various venues throughout July, and I was lucky enough to be asked to hang out for the last few gigs.  I didn’t get to do the photo shoot I wanted, but I did snap this Polaroid while we were messing around on the field at U.S. Cellular prior to a Sox game on July 25th.  I rather like it!  Great guys, huge talent.  Details »
