I was recently commissioned by model Lauren Noble to shoot studio portraits of her and her 3 year old daughter Chase. This is the one shot where she was actually calm. Shooting kids is never easy but we did end up with some really great shots.

Most of you know me as a photographer but back in the day i played drums in bands with my dear friend John Berenzy. I started playing bass a bit over 3 years ago and have been writing and recording. I wrote this song about my street photography in NYC in the 70’s, what the city was like then and what it’s like now. Along with my photos I see it as a rock ‘n roll documentary.
