UFC 360 – Edson Barboza

Well, the newest issue of UFC 360 finally hit the stands and I was fortunate enough to be asked to photograph UFC fighter Edson Barboza for his 3 page article. Preparation and visualization are the keys to success for all of my photo shoots.  I was told I would have 5 hours with Edson and […]

The Goalie – 4 Light Portrait

Last night I had the opportunity to shoot Luis Giovanni Paz, he plays goal for one of the local teams here in South Jersey.  My intentions were to create three images here… An editorial portrait shot, an action shot and finally a more commercial image that will be put together by my retoucher down the […]

Football Player – Making of Video

Steve Williams of Persempre Videos and I collaborated on yet another “making of” video with one of the best running backs in the state of New Jersey, Wesley Hills.  Wesley works out at a gym I belong to, and I thought it would be a good idea to create some images of him before he […]

Behind the scenes Video – Interrogation Photo

Sometimes, I think people don’t realize the amount of work that can go into creating just one image.  I thought I would give everyone an in-depth look at the interrogation photo I recently put together. There is a really cool machinery room below a 50 meter pool in New Jersey.  I wanted to do something […]

The Jackson Rider – Jeff Selby

Recently an old friend of mine, Jeff Selby of The Jackson Rider, contacted me about shooting some portraits of him for promotional use.  Jeff pretty much has an all access pass to The Legendary Dobbs, a bar in Philadelphia known for a long history of musicians that have passed through it. When I have the […]

The Nike Goggle Shoot

There has been a lot of great feedback regarding the swimmer photo that is on my site, and I have a little “behind-the-scenes” stuff, so I thought I would share.  Not much needed for this shoot… a person, a pool and some Nike goggles. My friend, Kyle, was nice enough to model for this shoot… Actually, it […]
