Last weekend I went for a lone wolf (solo) photowalk to lower Manhattan. Equipped with my Nikon D7100 and my newly bought Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8, I set out to capture my findings in the day. Here you’ll see 3 photos of the Brooklyn bridge in black and white captured at 70mm. It was interesting and at times hard using this massive glass to do some street and scenery photography, but I like challenge. It lets me play with capturing a frame a bit different than if I had my 35mm on there. It’s a bit tuff at times, but if you can deal with the struggle you can come out with some fantastic images. I’ll be sharing more of the photo walk in the coming days. For now, enjoy these photos…

Through The Viewfinder: Verrazano Bridge

In the next few weeks I’ll be posting some older photographs that I have never showed and/or have revisited in the post process department. It’s crazy to see some of these photos that are gonna be from a year to two years old. Being where I am with my current style of editing and shooting, it’s always good to go back to your archives and look over some images that you’ve overlooked or some you felt where originally not good. This was the case with this photo set from a photo-walk with three other friends near the Verrazano Bridge taken on September 22, 2013. We arrived during the dusk hour, so it was a perfect time to get some deep color images with shadows and amber light. I had a great time capturing these photos and I’m happy to now share this beautiful set with you. Hope you like what you see. Enjoy!

 It was a rainy day today and on my way to pick up a Nike iD and NB574 Custom that had some custom work done to them, I decided to bring the camera along. For some reason, my idea of trying to capture the rainy day with some interesting shots, kinda failed on me. I couldn’t create any photos I liked. It was one of those off days you have where you can’t get shit right. With that said, I’ll share a few of the decent ones I created today. Enjoy…

Through The Viewfinder: RESIDENTS


DSC_5004

I’ve been doing a lot of street photography the last 2 years and I look forward to sharing a lot of it with you here. One thing that I’ve neglected to shoot are the RESIDENTS of New York: or wherever I’m at. This will be a new series that I’ll be working on throughout the coming months; there’s more to New York than it’s scenery, more importantly are the people that are surround by it and those that create it. Today, I share 3 images of some RESIDENTS of China Town in Manhattan…

Customizer: Nike iD x Vagrant Sneaker “Colors Around NYC” PT.1 of 3


new york city, colors in nyc,

I was recently invited by Nike iD to take part in creating a color-way for the new Nike Free iD. In this case, I chose the Nike Free 3.0 iD with its engineered mesh. The session was a 1 on 1 video chat with one of their iD staff members. Knowing that I like to design my color-ways by taking inspiration from around me, they gave me a simple and fun assignment. Go and create photographs that I could translate into a CW for the Nike Free iD. With the word Free in mind, I went about and took photographs of objects that were filled with color in NYC. The outcome is what you see above in the 4 photos. To make it easier, I decided to pick two of the photos for my design. The truck and the light post…
