Over the last year, I’ve been focusing on reinventing myself as a photographer and artist. I have found inspiration in new places and forced myself to rediscover what inspires me. This has included looking in new places for inspiration (more posts to come on that later) and from artists working in many different media.

A creative writing professor of mine at NY’s Fashion Institute of Technology,…

Last month, Tudor Vasilescu and I collaborated on a short fashion film project, which we called ANDROGYNY.  The 3 minute and 48 second film explores the modern androgynous women and some of the inner turmoil that is associated with struggling with sexual identity (or better yet sexual identity as it is perceived) in New York City.

The film will premiere at the Women & Fashion FilmFest on June 4,…

NYFPC: We are stronger together.

NYFPC: We are stronger together.

Being a photographer, you can sometimes feel like you’re walking down a path all by yourself. Of course, you’re always surrounded by those that work by your side day in and day out. On set, you’re surrounded by your team. That team work is one of the things I love about being a fashion photographer – it’s a collaborative environment where every mind adds to the power of the team. Beyond that,…

The show must go on, so we shot the story anyway. I’ve learned…

Greenpoint, Brooklyn Recycling Plant Fire

Greenpoint, Brooklyn Recycling Plant Fire

I think this was a perfect example of working in a situation that I couldn’t control; What else could I do, but grab my camera and head on over to…
