Capturing urban landscapes from a fresh unusual perspective, is my passion. I try to capture the essence and soul of New York City landmarks embedded within the thrilling 'energy' of the city, instead of just reproducing a likeness of it.
I am fascinated by the work of Arnold Newman's environmental portraits because of the compelling way in which he captured frequently photographed artists like Picasso, Stravinsky and Marilyn Monroe. Using him as a muse, I have tried to present my own interpretation of portraiture.
I have always loved photographing children. A few years ago my wife came up with the idea of doing fantasy portrait for kids. Through the use of innovative costumes, soft lighting and a storybook setting, we set the stage for a magical afternoon where kids are the star. Once we complete the photo shoot, we add magical elements for a result that is absolutely breathtaking.
