Because this comic book convention was so much fun last year, I was thrilled to be asked to take photos again. Click on the thumbnail to the right to see the results!
I haven't been this excited about a comic book convention in a long time, which was made even better by the fact that it was two blocks from my house. When I asked the organizers if they needed any help, they asked if I would mind taking photos and I was more than happy to do so. Click on the thumbnail to the right to see the results!
This is a photo project that I contributed to Vassar Magazine's December 2007 issue. I already had two of the pictures from years ago, but liked them so much that I decided to expand on that look and feel. Click on the photo to the right to see the complete project.
Many thanks to my friends who graciously contributed their time to this project: Xander Hirschi, Greg House, Chet Holowicki, David Brown, Joel Ortiz, and Todd Brownlie.
I transformed my living room into a studio with the help of Archie Florcruz and this is one of the headshots I did for a local actor.

My friend Bob contacted me about a short film that he was working on and asked if I'd be interested in doing photo stills for it. I'd never done something like that before, but was pretty excited by the challenge. Click on the image to the right to see a larger version of that photo or go to the links below for more info about the film or to watch it. A lot of the photos used in the press kits were ones that I took and my photos were also used in the menus of the DVD.
I've contacted a few friends over the years about doing collaborations that combined my photos with their artwork. What I had in mind was that whatever they drew would interact with the setting of the photo and Chris Beverwyk captured that perfectly. The link below goes to his portfolio and you can also click on the image to see a larger version.
Shortly after I got a Polaroid iZone camera, I was given a free calendar in Chinatown for the coming new year with boxes that were the same size as iZone sticky film. I'd recently seen a project online where someone had taken their own picture every day for years and thought it was an interesting idea. Because Polaroid film can be rather pricey, I discovered that I could get some on eBay that had expired for really cheap. Sometimes the results were interesting because the colors were off and other times there would be a weird blotch on one side. I used normal film around the time of my 30th birthday and at the end of the year when I'd run out of the expired stuff. Click on the thumbnail to check out that project's mini-site.
