Wonderfully detailed B&W photo of a summertime marina full of docked boats in Noank, CT. This is a great nautical scene that would make a stunning gallery-style print to display in the home of anyone who treasures boating. I would recommend a medium size print for this particular image, perhaps 16×20, and a simple white frame, white mat for best display. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon lens and a Canon 5D Mark III camera.

Stunningly detailed black and white photograph taken from the High Line Park in the MeatPacking District of NYC. This view is almost as interesting in color as it is in B&W with the exception of all of the tremendous fine details that your eye misses when the image is viewed in color. Shooting this image in B&W gives it a classic old-world look that makes it a truly timeless photograph and a familiar scene to native New Yorkers everywhere. Fine detail like this is perfect for a professional Pearl print… you’ll notice twice as much detail as you do on your computer monitor!

This photo is in celebration of the 2014 Sochi Olympics and all the athletes who participated. Taken in Rockerfeller Center New York with a Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar lens, which is one of my favorite performers in terms of color accuracy and vibrance. The evening light provided all the contrast to make this image stand out as a recognizable scene to any native New Yorker.

This is a photograph of a stunning sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains taken a few hours after a rainstorm passed through. The soft colors melted into an image that looks more like a painting than a photograph, and that makes this a very special image for me. This is available as 1 of 50 limited edition archival pigment prints, canvas recommended, but a simple gallery frame would be beautiful as well. Taken with a Carl Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar lens, f/8.

The colors turned out to be so striking in this abstract shot of a graffitied city hand railing that I had to share this with you. The deep, vibrant browns and greens set apart by a perfectly horizontal horizon make this a special one for me. The impact that this photo has even though the subject matter is so simple and ordinary reminds me of another one of my personal favorites, the limited edition ‘intraordinary’ photograph.
This is straight out of the camera with no post-processing. Taken with a lens that I no longer own, a Canon 70-200mm f2.8mm II zoom lens. The 70-200/2.8II was a pretty phenomenal lens for a zoom, and I did enjoy using it, but it’s limitations compared to my other prime lenses didn’t justify the expense of keeping it. The newest version of this lens is a must-have for any documentary photographer though since the image quality and bokeh is truly top notch for a zoom lens.

I love the magic that evening light creates. This is an ordinary statue with worn surfaces and washed out colors that suddenly came alive with feeling when I took this close up shot in the late evening while the sun was setting. The colors popped, the shadow divided the composition nicely, and the feeling of serenity that I’m sure the artist intended for this piece suddenly came shining through. This would make an AMAZING large canvas piece! Taken with the most artistic lens I know of… the Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar.

I couldn’t publish ‘four freedoms fall’ without showing you it’s sister photo.
It was just the right moment when everything was lined up and framed perfectly with these lovely ladies having a conversation while strolling down the perfectly aligned walkway in Four Freedoms Park. I love photos that tell a little story, and this one does just that.
I used a Canon 85mm f1.2 lens for this shot, and this is straight from the camera. No post processing, and it was actually shot as a JPEG in black and white.
