People often ask me how I became a food photographer. There’s no simple answer. The truth is I always yearned to do something creative. When I was young, my mom wrote a couple of cookbooks loaded with amazing photos. My dad taught me how to grow a veggie garden and in a matter of years I evolved from a picky eater to an adventurous one. In college, I inherited my Dad's vintage Konica EE-Matic camera. My wife became a pastry chef, and my first client just happened to be a caterer. Lucky me. As a rookie photographer, I quickly realized that making food images was incredibly satisfying, more so than any other subject. I wanted to learn everything there was to know about the craft. I’m still learning, and I’m still enjoying all the leftovers from my shoots, no matter what type of food.
I'm available for editorial, commercial, and personal projects. I also enjoy shooting portraits, lifestyle, architecture and events. When I'm really just shooting for fun, I love to capture live music and snap aerials from airplanes...or blimps.
In my downtime, I can often be found at one of the many live music venues in the NYC area, hiking, cooking, or making my own music with the Americana band Greetings From Anywhere. I'm blessed with a super easy commute, working out of the gorgeous Hudson Collective space on the Dobbs Ferry waterfront.
