Women At Work

For some reason I have a thing for women at work.

Balls Breaking And Asses On Fire

For whatever reason I've never really gotten to shoot nearly the amount of fem dom work that I would like to shoot - This was an example. Now if I could have only gotten this in the street the way I wanted....

The Good One

Every Photographer has go-to models.  Models that they can call when they have an idea that no one else wants to try or that will be patient when you are trying out new light's or techniques. Some say muse - some say friend. It's not always any of that. Sometimes it is. It borders on the deepest intimacy. Sometimes it's just the knowledge that for some reason you can make that person look great in front of your lens. For me Luna-Vary was one of those. She is all through my work and this page is not a best of. Just a sample. I recommend you get in touch and book her. The results will be worth it.

American Nightmare / Give Up The Ghost July 22 2012 Webster Hall NYC

What else can I say that has not been said - the words, the anger, the frustration, the fury? American Nightmare (later called Give Up The Ghost) were a band that helped reignite my love for hardcore. I've been told I have the emotions of a teenage girl more than once and I do believe that led to my love of the lyrical content. The power that the band put into their live performances never failed to amaze me. I was so disappointed when they left without much fanfare. While I doubt there is much left in them as a band now it was a true pleasure to get to see them one last time.

 Shot with Angel Careese in Boston early morning. After a day of flake outs for normal timed shoots Angel met me at 5 in the morning and I was happy to see her. Bubbly and enthusiastic even after a day at work she was eager to go.
Boston on the other hand failed to co-operate. First location i ran into the dreaded "i am just doing my job" security guy. Always worse than the cops because they honestly have no fucking idea of the why's of what they are doing. Discretion means nothing. They just repeat the company line over and over. "the rules say...blah yada blah yada"
Sucked - good location that maybe I'll hit in the future. The loss of those 15 minutes meant i missed the sun coming up over Copley Square.

 The sky went from a brilliant red with rolling choppy clouds to barely blue and flat in a matter of minutes. It happens but it still was upsetting. I had an eager model and co-operating gear unlike Montreal where I had the model and the sky but fucked up gear. Regardless we went to work shooting and even though I had to shoot at some faster shutter speeds than i wanted in order to bring any definition into the clouds I was pretty happy with that part of the shoot.

Copley was a great location with lots of stuff to shoot in front of. Angel was great for bringing lots of outfits. The bums were great for giving some flavor to some of the shots and not bothering the talent...
We got out to the Mass Ave Bridge which separates Boston from Cambridge and the wind went nuts. I had been using the Impact Quik Box and the Westcott Apollo Orb throughout the day to good results but on the bridge even with the camera bag hanging from the stand there was no way to use either modifier without assistance which i did not have. So i shot with the bare 580EX2 and this is what I go. The sky finally was showing some definition but by then i was on my way to work...

The Churchyard Montreal - Rope, Redhead, Garters, Blonde, Yum

 Fashion and Fetish Meet in front of a Montreal Church. Joanie D and Dorothee' St. Onge did an amazing job dealing with the crowds, the weather, the lights giving me a headache. Etc. I love these images... Pardon me for the few that are repeats...
