Solar Experience

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.


Derek Jeter and Fenway Park

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.

A day in the life of Tony Trischka

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. 

Thirteen Photos from 2013

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.

Sea Plane Views

Last week I had the chance to fly in a sea plane.  We took off from the East River and took the 35 minute ride out to Sag Harbor in the Hamptons to get a sneak peak at the conversion of the old Bulova Watchcase Factory into a new luxury condo project.  We flew pretty low, not more than 1500 feet, so we had some great views the whole way.  The paper published a gallery of my aerial photos online as well as a spread in print. Here are a few of my favorites from the trip.
