Capsize for Blum Magazine { Hudson Valley Model Photographer }

First off if you’re looking for a Módní Photographer check out my portfolio.  I’d of course love to put together your perfect shoot.

So of course I was super happy to be out in Iceland to go and get married, and let me tell you it was a perfect day, but while we were there, of course we had to put together a few shoots.  So this editorial was all shot in Iceland.  Honestly, if you would have told me a few years ago that I would be shooting a whole editorial in Iceland, I’m not sure I would have believed you.  Frankly, it’s crazy how much life has changed in recent months.  I’m now married, living in Hudson Valley, staying in zagreb while our visa’s are approved, and just generally enjoying my life these days.  I think most people have these stories of how they turned a rejection into a success, and I feel like I’m no different.  I remember a long time ago talking to my ex wife about some recent shoot I had done, and made some comment like “

If you’re looking for a great [Hudson Valley food photographer]( Valley-food-photographer.aspx), you should really check out my portfolio.  While I do mostly shoot fashion, I have a real love for food photography.  It’s probably because I grew up cooking, and have always has a passion for great food.

I finally have some breathing room to get caught up on my blogging.  Expect to see a bunch of stuff that I’ve worked on lately.  One of the things that I’ve been working on lately is updating my food portfolio.  I want to branch out a bit, and start booking more work for that market segment.  I have to be honest though,… really what I love is taking pictures o

Hailey @ Wilhelmina Hudson Valley Modeling Agency { Hudson Valley Headshot Photographer }

Well I’m certainly trying to stay on top of my blogging.  I wouldn’t say I’m doing a great job of it, but I’ve been doing better than I was before.  The weather here in Hudson Valley has really been fantastic out lately, which has a great effect of putting me in a fantastic mood.  It also means that I start to get really inspired.  I would say that I have a tendency to hibernate in the winter time.  It’s just not my favorite time to shoot.  I love working with natural light, and interesting backdrops, with great people.  In the winter time, what I refer to as studio season I tend to get a bit bored of doing the same

Hudson Valley Fashion Beauty Photographer { Savannah In the Studio}

It’s pretty rare for me to shoot beauty.  I can do it, but I don’t typically.  I guess I just don’t have a client base that usually needs beauty.  If anyone knows a beauty company in Hudson Valley that needs work done, I’d love to put together a shoot, but I think it’s pretty rare in these parts.

This shoot was actually a ton of fun.  Me and my studio mate really wanted to figure out a very specific kind of lighting setup.  Which isn’t pictured here. In the end Lynzi did most of the shooting, and I just came in at the end because I wanted to get at least one good beauty shot before we all left the studio.  For this shot I went with something very simple.  I believe it was just a softbox off to camera

Hudson Valley Photographer { Tiger K }

These shots were from a while back, but I don’t think I ever blogged about them.  This is one of my favorite models in Hudson Valley. Tiger. Yes her name is really tiger, no that’s not a joke.  She’s a super bomber person, and one of my favorite models to work with in Hudson Valley.  She actually moved out to LA a little while ago, and she’s signed with an agency in Toronto.  Which is pretty awesome.  I guess she actually gets quite a bit of work out in LA from her Toronto based modeling agency.  Something I found surprising.

She’s actually come a long way since the first time I shot with her.  I wouldn’t say I was the first photographer to shoot with her, but I will say after I shot w

Meredith Model Portfolio Work Hudson Valley Photographer

When you’re as far behind on blogging as I am, you might as well get all the old stuff out the way.  Yes?  Ok good, glad we’re both on the same page. These shots are from a while ago as well.  Everyone say hello to Meredith, who is a local Hudson Valley model.  I’m not sure she really does much modeling anymore, but she was great when I had a chance to work with her in my studio.  This was another one of those shoots where I just really wanted to get in the studio and do some work.  There wasn’t a makeup artist involved, just me and my assistant, playing around and finding some fun looks. I liked how the shoot turned out overall, and I think I got some really pretty images for Meredith,

Kaitlyn Playing with Black and White Film

To be honest these shots are pretty old. I shot them when I was on one of my big film kicks.  I get in those moods sometimes.  I love the way film looks.  I also just adore being able to shoot Polaroids, and be able to show them to the model right then.  It’s crazy how that can change the dynamic of a shoot.  Suddenly it goes from photographer and model, to creator and co-creator.  I can’t explain why this changes things, but it does dramatically.

Suddenly when a model can see an image created right in front of their eyes they have a completely different outlook on the shoot.  They can see what they’re doing well, and what they are doing not so well.  Of course as the ph

I really loved working on this shoot. We basically just wanted to capture some of that great summer bohemian look. This was another quick shoot. Really simple looks, and nothing complicated. I also wanted to work some more with doing light leaks and some free lensing on this shoot.

I had found Olive on facebook, and I knew she would be perfect for what I had in mind. Not like this is some super crazy editorial. This was just fun creative work. Nothing crazy, super low key kind of work. It’s nice to have those kinds of shoots every once in a while to recharge the batteries.

I think any photographer knows that you can certainly get burned out quickly especially if it’s a lot of high stress gigs. They actually tak

Hudson Valley Photographer { Anna V Modeling Portfolio Work }

Here are a few quick shots I did with a local Hudson Valley model Anna. This was a really quick spur of the moment shoot. I basically just wanted to get behind my camera.  It had been too long.  In fairness too long for me is a few days.  When you love doing photography, it’s hard to be away from it for too long.  For this shoot I really didn’t have anything in particular in mind, I just wanted to try out some new techniques, and get some great images.

For the first look I knew I wanted to shoot on my black background.  I love the way this comes out.  It’s easy for black backdrops to look cheesy as all get out, but as long as your post work is interesting, it doesn’t look l

Hudson Valley Photographer { Kora Editorial for Jute Magazine }

Earlier this year I had an awesome chance to work on an editorial that i had been wanting to do for a very long time.  I had always wanted to shoot a seedy motel.  Now initially I wanted a sun drenched LA look to this shoot, with something that looked a bit more vintage, but in the end it was too hard to find a motel that would even let us shoot there.  You’d be shocked at how hard it is, to get people to take your money.  Seriously I wasn’t trying to do anything for trade, I just wanted them to let me shoot while I was paying for a room.  It was suprisingly ridiculous how scared people were about me doing an editorial.  I had one lady accuse me of trying to get away with having an orgy, and no
