I am very excited to announce that I will be giving a lecture at the Soho Apple Store December 17th, sponsored by APA|NY as part of its Image Maker Series.
Admission for the event is free and will start at 7pm; there will also be a Q&A after the lecture.
I will be showing some of my favorite images and latest motion work and discussing my approach to the creative process, including all aspects of production, and behind the scene stories of the making of the images and video for select editorial, advertising, and personal projects.
Would love to see you there!

THE FENCE at Photoville is part of the summer-long Brooklyn, NY outdoor photo exhibition that will be revealed on June 22nd and run until August 2012. I am pumped to have 3 of my dog images included in the photographic exhibition which measures more than 1000ft in length. The exhibition begins at Pier 1 and continues along the walkway to the uplands of Pier 3. Here is one of the three images I am showing. Pepito,"Can I bum a smoke?" Friday June 29// 8:30pm Nighttime Projection: Photos from the Fence --THE FENCE will also come to life as a nighttime projection at Photoville. The nighttime projection will be an expanded selection of images showcasing juror highlights from THE FENCE. During this projection, Photoville will present The Grand Prize Jury Winner and a People's Choice Winner for the Fence. I am definitely going to be there with Pepito. ----------------------------------------------------------- Along with THE FENCE exhibit, Photoville will feature a village of freight containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, a photo dog run, a camera greenhouse, and a beer garden with food trucks. Lets just say it will be the coolest photographic summer destination in NYC!

My very first editorial assignment took place May 28, 1994 working with the Milarepa Fund, a non-profit organization that promotes awareness of the Tibetan independence movement, founded in 1994 by Adam Yauch and activist Erin Potts. I was so excited on many levels one as a fan of the Beastie Boys, but also getting the opportunity to meet The Dalai Lama, MAJOR! There was a Tibetan artifacts exhibition being held at The Smithsonian, my assignment was to photograph the Tibetan Monks constructing a mandala at the exhibit. We then travel by bus to the Jefferson Memorial, were the blessings of the mandala sand were placed in the Potomac River. Next stop, The Rock Show! The Tibetan Monks shared their traditional dance and music by opening for the Beastie Boys at WUST Radio Music Hall. I guess you could call this show the birth of the Tibetan Freedom concerts. Here are a few images I was able to dig up
