Obviously a really thin year for hotels stays, and travel in general. Got a few in, here's my 2020 pics out of my hotel window's.

Again, the challenge is, no multiple photos, only one actuation of the view out of my room window.


COVID-19. Zooms. Antigen. Rapid tests, respirators, surgical masks, 6 feet, N95, droplets, quarantine, hot states, sanitizer, false negatives, social distance, face shields, 3-layered H13 HEPA Filter, asymptomatic, CCO (COVID Compliance Officer), microns etc….all words that I never thought would...

Portraits of mandated isolation through the emergence process. As documented during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic crisis.


Photos out of a few of my hotel window's. One click. One image. That's the challenge.


Rose & I spent part of the day on Sat. and drove to the San Diego - Tijuana border, as far southwest as one can go, near the beach. We went to a really interesting place, called Friendship Circle.

It's unique in that Friendship Circle is located within the Border Patrol’s enforcement...


I love mountains, high dessert, lakes etc. but the #Everglades is still my jam! I was in FL this week to work on an intense project, one that I've been sporadically working on for about 2 years. At some point I look forward to sharing the details. After I wrapped, I picked up some rations and...


Look what hit the airwaves last week, a news feature on yours truly

I hope that you enjoy these images from my recent trip to Zimbabwe. They were made on a water safari on Lake Kariba and then we went on a land safari in Hwange National...


To see far is one thing: going there is another. - Constantin Brancusi

I suck at vacations, I just do, I've tried. Plop me at a resort, I'm going to feel caged and will break free to find life on the other side of the fence. I'm a traveler at heart. I like the unknown, the unexpected, to...


Photos out of a few of my hotel (and overnight plane) window's. The challenge, one shot, one image only...but you knew that;)

The Fall 2018 Workbook is out! I. Am. Somebody. This image is from a series of portraits that I've been working on for over a year. It's a personal project focusing on immigrants from the 7 countries on the 2017 travel ban list. My goal is to put a face to the countries. Before we go there, this...

I had a shoot in Kenya recently and one of the locations was at a rural secondary school near the equator. Some of the kids were studying for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam. It's an intense examination. Each year, hundreds of thousands of students take the exam after...

Woman Running the NYC Half Marathon

This was a new course for the NYC Half. I was assigned Chinatown. Although it's a great location to shoot, I was chasing light all morning. It was bright & sunny, clean cold air which made things pretty contrasty. Where the sun didn't shine, the shadows were deep & dark. I was looking...

Red Rose

The red rose symbolizes courage, respect & prosperity. In the Tarot the rose is considered a symbol of balance and expresses new beginnings, promise & hope and its thorns stand for protection, loss, thoughtlessness, physicality. During the renaissance a rose with 8 petals was a message...

A High Water Pour Over Absinthe

The history of absinthe is a long & mysterious one. Hallucinations, craziness, murders, diabolical shit, it was outlawed in the US, as well as in France & Switzerland until the 2000's. The first drink was made for medicinal purposes. In the late 1800's Parisian artists, poets, writers...


Nothing has changed: as in the past, I allow myself one photo out of my window from every hotel that I stay in. Here's the partial list from 2017 -> insert drum roll here.
