Yankees Magazine asked me to document a game day at Yankee Stadium. From the grounds crew getting the field ready, the players arriving in the tunnels, the fans arriving by train to all the sights around the stadium during the game.
In the heart of Manhattan, a 7 acre green roof sits on top of the busiest convention center in the United States. In one small corner of that green roof, employees at the Jacob Javits Convention Center are taking advantage of the urban oasis to raise honey bees.
A recent assignment brought me to Trenton, NJ where the pitching staff for the Yankees AA team, the Trenton Thunder, has been having a lot of success as of late. I was able to spend a game day with Pitching Coach Jose Rosado and his stable of young arms.
Nothing like a great sunset while you are at work.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to a very remote village in Nicaragua to document a great project sponsored by Viridian Energy. After hours in the car, 4 wheeling over some of the toughest roads I have ever been on, we hiked for an hour into the village of Potrero Platanal. Due to their remote location, the village of subsistence farm families has never had access to electricity. Partnering with GRID Alternatives, a nonprofit organization that provides off-grid solar power to rural communities in Nicaragua, the volunteers from Viridian installed solar panels and light in 40 village home. It was a great experience and a pleasure to work with some wonderful people.
With Derek Jeter's career coming to a close, the Yankees final game of the season will be at Fenway Park. Here are a few of the images I made for a story about the Captain's career at Fenway and the park itself. Some of my favorites are the impressions the baseball leaves on the Green Monster, something Boston based photographer CJ Gunther has been photographing for a long time. To see some very cool images of the Green Monster on his website click here.
Yankees magazine used my photo of Carlos Beltran getting a Gatorade bath from Brett Gardner in the "On Deck" section as a double truck.
Thanks to Style Me Pretty for featuring an engagement shoot I did with a great couple.

Time lapse fun with the New York Waterways ferries on the Hudson River.
Recently I had the opportunity to work with the legendary banjo player Tony Trischka. To help launch his new album, Great Big World, We documented a day in his recent tour. Throughout my career the thing I have enjoyed the most is the chance to be around greatness. Be it medicine, sports, art, music or any other field, greatness is an inspiring thing to see and I got to hang with a whole lot of it for a day. The stop motion and time lapse piece we created is now featured on the home page of Tony's website. Check it out and check out his new album.
2013 was a year of major change in my career. Leaving a staff job at a newspaper that I worked at since 1999 meant starting over in a lot of ways. Looking back at what I shot over the past 12 months I put together a group of 13 of my favorite images from the year. Someone else may have chosen 13 totally different photos, but here is what I came up with in no particular order.
I had the opportunity to shoot from a helicopter the other day above New York City. One of those days that I am very happy with my career choice. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
Here is a very quick time lapse of the Twitter banner going up on the New York Stock Exchange the night before the company's initial public offering.
Media day for the Brooklyn Nets and the chance to do portraits of some great athletes.
I was assigned to photograph a college football game between Army and Stanford. While of course I had to cover the action and story of the game, it was the scenery and atmosphere at Michie Stadium that appealed to me more. Here are a few non-action photos from the game. See if you can spot the photographer in one of the photos.

I had the opportunity to photograph the trotter Dewycolorintheline with rider and trainer Ray Schnittker at Schnittker's farm in upstate New York.
I recently spent a few days shooting the MLB All Star Week FanFest at the Javitz Center. While I was shooting stills I also took a little time to shoot some time lapse and stop motion sequences. I put it together in this piece I call FanFest in a Minute. My guess is it is about 1500 photos in all.
